Five Things - 3There were no winners in last night’s Powerball draw worth an estimated $432.5 million.

The winning numbers were: 9, 15, 43, 60 and 64. Powerball number was 4.

Saturday’s drawing is worth $510 million with a lump sum cash payout of $324.2 million. Now you’ve got my attention.

Five Things - 4Facebook just released stats on the flood of “Happy Birthday” posts on their site. And they found one out of 30 users tells someone “Happy Birthday” every day.

That adds up to 45 million birthday wishes on a daily basis or over 16.4 billion a year.

Five Things - 5 The Atlanta Falcons will play in a new stadium this year, with all the coolest features. Including a Chick-fil-A stand. But, the stand will be closed during home games on Sunday because the restaurant chain is only open 6 days a week.

Chick-fil-A says: “Our founder, Truett Cathy, made the decision to close on Sundays in 1946 when he opened his first restaurant in Hapeville, Georgia. Having worked seven days a week in restaurants open 24 hours, Truett saw the importance of closing on Sundays so that he and his employees could set aside one day to rest and worship if they choose – a practice we uphold today.”

Seven of the 8 Falcon home games will be played on a Sunday.
