Publishers Clearing House Contest

I keep getting e-mails from Publishers Clearing House about how I could be the next winner of $5000.00 per week for the rest of my life. Or, I could be the next $10,000,000 winner! Publishers Clearing House has sure come a long way from the olden days when I was a kid. Do you remember when your mom would get the Publishers Clearing House packet in the mail? It had tiny pictures of the magazines you could order, and then you would be entered into the contest for whatever amount of money was a huge amount back then. It all seemed so exciting. Not too long ago, it seems to me they would award their big prize during the Super Bowl. Now, I can enter the PCH Lotto, and PCH Search & Win, PCH Scratch Cards in addition to the standard $10,000,000 prize. You can even win by watching video clips of the Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol (you know, the gray haired guy, Dave Sayer, in the van). I guess people really do win the prizes. If I won, we live so far out that the Prize Patrol probably wouldn't be able to find us, and none of our neighbors are ever home, so there would be very little drama surrounding the prize delivery. Even so, I wouldn't mind winning a prize from PCH. If I won, I would be able to move back home and send my kids to college without any money worries. Ahhh. If only!
