Am I unusual in not contributing to the Good causes Lottery funds. :-\ :-\ :-\

I don't normally, but they've been putting money on at work as a group ..... you're then obliged to join in as you'd be a bit p1$$ed off if you were the only one turning up for work while the rest of them were sunning themselves on a beach somewhere  ;D ;D

In 1980 five of my workmates decided to have a pools syndicate. They wanted a sixth member and asked me if I wanted to join. I wasn't interested so they went ahead with just the five. They won 28,500 between them on the first week, which was a goodly sum in 1980.
I was a wee bit pissed off with myself, to put it mildly.
As for the lottery, its so long since I did it, that I haven't got a clue how it works any more.

According to an online calculator 28500 in 1980 is worth 110853 in 2019.

Divide this by 6 and you get 18475 each.

A tidy sum, and more than enough to satisfy an elderly Irish fellow with an assortment of fine French motor cars. :)

No. Because its there to make money for Camelot, and the "Good Causes" are at best suspect - I don't see money wasted on sculptures, arts centres and the like counting as "Good Causes"

Yes just think what Le Albs could have bought in 1980!

Renault 5, Citroen Dyane, Simca 1000, or even the Talbot Matra Rancho!  :y

My guess is a Renault 16 and a Renault 4.

I would have been doing the sums to find out if a year old Chevette HS plus the pools winnings would buy me a well used Ferrari or a 911.

I had a Simca 1000 in my yoot!  :y

As the engine was in the boot, I could do great handbrake turns and J-turns!  :)

The only Renault I have ever owned was a 100 2.0 8v 25 Monaco auto...

Not in any particular hurry to buy another  :D
