Out with the old, in with the new.
The Irish tradition, for New Years, open the front door and open the back door. In with the new and out with the old. Sounds good to me.
What a gorgeous day to end the year with in Vegas.
We end the year. Not as successful as we would have liked, but far more successful than a number of people had. The holidays in Vegas have led to many tragic traffic accidents from Thanksgiving to Christmas and continuing through New Years.
This new year’s 2020 fireworks are being reported as being the most expensive and most technical than any year in the Vegas Valley history. (And indeed it was. Absolutely spectacular!)
To Justina: 8 August 2019, five years FREE from tyranny oppression. The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave now belongs to you. Never take for granted the freedom and independence that is now yours. Never forget the sisters who perished trying to realize the same dreams you now hold….
The Eyes of the Eagle
Today (7 May 2019) is the last day you can shop at Albertsons and receive free Monopoly tickets for a chance to win prizes. Winners come from more than 1 billion game tickets in play. You could win free groceries, free grocery gift cards, vacations and trips, college tuitions, consumer products of various money-value ranges from a few hundred dollars to a million dollars and cash prizes ranging from $5 to 1 million dollars and much more!
Actually, the Albertsons store I shop at is already out of tickets, so you can’t receive any more free tickets at some of the stores. See “Complaint” below.
There is much mistruth being circulated by some of the Albertsons employees, at least at the store where I shop, so that prompts this article.
I have had several Albertsons employees, including some mid-level managers, state that 7 May 2019 was the last date to redeem Monopoly tickets. That simply just is not true. So don’t throw your unredeemed tickets away. THEY ARE STILL GOOD!
The 7 May 2019 date is the last day tickets are supposedly handed out. But as stated, Albertsons have already depleted their supply a few days ahead of this date.
The online game for entering the code for additional chances to win in a sweepstake ends 17 May 2019 online or must be received by 28 May 2019 for mailed-in tickets.
Winning tickets for the prizes including instant winners and in-store coupons are good and redeemable through Tuesday 28 May 2019. It says so right on the winning ticket. Some special promos have expiration dates as late as 30 June 2019. See the printed information on the tickets for all expiration dates.
Lesson learned: Don’t take people’s word for it, not even managers. DIY and study all aspects of any game you enter. It could be worth a lot of money, and if not, provide some nice little bonuses such as free items. Review all rules and regulations and all information pertaining to the games offered at a retail store or consumer outlets that you decide to participate in. Review them early and don’t wait until the last minute to act such as cashing in winning tickets since supplies could be depleted.
Can’t find your Monopoly board? No worries. You don’t need it. Besides, a website explaining the Albertsons Monopoly Game suggests collecting whole game board pieces is a waste of time and energy. All you need are the RARE GAME PIECES. RARE GAME PIECES NEEDED TO WIN BIG Links to the complete official rules and other information are also included at this site. RULES
According to this website these are the only tickets you need to save: 302BA, 308DB, 309AC, 315CD, 318BE, 321AF, 327CG, 332DH, 335CI, 336DI, 341CJ, 343EJ, 348DK, 351CL, 353AM, 358BN, 362BO, 365AP, 372DQ, 374BR, 379CS, 381AT, 388DU, 391CV, 394BW, 397EW, 398AX, 401DX, 403AY, 404BY, 408AZ, 411DZ, 416D$, 417E$, 419B#, 420C#.
These are rare or very rare tickets. They are worth big bucks.
It is suggested you review this website information since there is still time to win and cash in your winnings.
Don’t discount the opportunity for the second-chance drawings, either. In 2017 a woman won the 1 million dollar prize from entering the second-chance drawing at an Albertsons affiliate store: Million-dollar winner
Next year, start earlier and review the rules at the beginning of the game so you know exactly where you stand and what you need to do. Take full advantage of promos like these since they can total a tidy reward throughout the promotional season. That translates to a cash saving for your shopping budget.
Place all of your Monopoly tickets in one place, a basket, shoebox, whatever so you can find them when you need them and they are not scattered around in clutter presenting a lost opportunity. There is nothing worse than finding a winning ticket after the game is over and the turn-in date has expired.
Don’t waste winning tickets. If you can’t use them, give them to someone who can.
You’ve got to be in it to win. GOOD LUCK!
When the final day of free tickets approaches Albertsons has a habit of passing out extra tickets so they are not left with leftovers. This is a bad policy since I have a stack of tickets that are instant winners for two free tickets each. I am sure many other people have these now worthless tickets, too. Any of those tickets may (or could have) provide bigger winners. Because the Albertsons store where I shop has depleted its supply I am told I could go to another store. WRONG! Albertsons should send out to whatever source they have to and honor these winning tickets and redeem them as a customer deserves. Sure, they can change the rules or put disclaimers like “while supplies last,” but they devalue their own game and reputation when they do this nonsense because they displeased their loyal customer base. Lesson learned. Don’t wait until the last day to redeem your winning tickets. But then, what if those winning tickets for free tickets were among the last handed out? Now what?

Jeff Bezos has surpassed Bill Gates as the world’s richest man and his company, Amazon, passes Gates’s Microsoft as the world’s most valuable public company.
It only took 25 years for Jeff Bezos to take a company now named Amazon.com from a private garage to one of the largest companies in the world. Founded in 1994 Bezos started in the used book business and sold his first book in 1995.
Bill Gates and his partner, Microsoft co-founder, Paul Allen, began their road to riches from the humble beginning started in a private garage, too.
Mark Zuckerberg and his co-founders started Facebook in a college dorm room. There are thousands of examples of how Americans started with nothing and built an empire. Why are they hated so much and attacked so often?
Three years ago college graduates could not find a job. Many lived in their mother’s basement and were in despair. Now many of them have their own companies and are are climbing the corporate ladder and are planning their own company. That’s what the Americans do, they dream the American Dream.
While socialists and socialism are rising like out-of-control weeds in a garden crowding out American Dreams and prosperity, they denounce the wealthy people and the big companies they own. They are calling for taxes as high as 70% on the very companies started by college dropouts and people just like themselves. America and Americans produce yet again world examples that one can, in the freest and most independent land in the world, go from rags to riches, broke to wealthy by following their dreams and working hard.
Now why would anybody want to destroy that?
A young, Saudi Arabian woman, Rahaf al-Qunun, is struggling for freedom and independence after escaping her patriarch family in the Middle East. In nations like Saudi Arabia, a U.S. ally of significant importance, females, even adults do not have freedom or independence. If Ms. Mohammed a-Qunun is forced to return to her home country of Saudi Arabia it is certain she will be another victim of honor killing.
The bridge from slavery to freedom is a daring and risky thing to cross. So is the bridge from destitution to financial security. Those that dare to risk everything and take those challenges of crossing those bridges have the most to gain.
We have become a world that wants to punish those who have accomplished so much and reward those who have done little to help themselves or the world. That just doesn’t seem right.
Escape into Jana Mashonee’s world and relax and enjoy!
Merry Christmas everybody! Peace to the world!
