Re: Competitions

I can think of three friends who genuinely won regularly in raffles, lotteries or competions. I've come to the conclusion that some people are more lucky that way. Of course it helps if you...

True but the "new normal" in Europe at least has a bit of "wriggle room" for most people to cut back on spending. Sadly if you're living with the "new normal" in a country like Somalia you don't...
