Scientists have calculated that the chances of something so patently absurd actually existing are millions to one.
But magicians have calculated that million-to-one chances crop up nine times out of ten.

I never win anything; well I am lying a bit as on thinking back I remembered that I have won things and twice in my life, (well three if you count winning £10 once on the National Lottery). I won a bottle of whisky in a raffle once at a Dobermann Club dog show many moons ago and I did win £1000 in our local Air Ambulance lottery a few years back - that was a big one (!) and I wanted to donate the prize back to the Air Ambulance as they have ferried me on two occasions and I owe them a very great deal. But they absolutely refused to allow me to do that so I accepted it - my bank balance was dwindling at that time so it was quickly swallowed up and I never did treat myself. And now I have won two sets of notecards in an online draw by a Devon artist and blogger . Do go and visit a fine photographer and wildlife artist living on Dartmoor whose blog is always on my list as one not to miss.
She has an Etsy shop too.
I hope you have good luck too in the near future.
Bye for now,
Go mbeannai dia duit,
