8.8.08 ... "more prosperity" ... Olympics ... lucky day

It's finally here ... the eighth day of the eighth month ... August 8, 2008 ... opening day of the Olympics in China and, for many, a lucky day. Around the world, the number "eight" signifies success and, interestingly, the Chinese word for "eight" is the same as for "prosperity." Lottery officials are prepared for a surge in ticket sales ... many engaged couples have chosen today to tie the knot.

Whether you play the lottery, get hitched, or just kick back and watch the opening ceremonies of the Olympics, happy "eight" day.
