    olsaltydog - how do you know that no men have won? You cannot always tell by the user name if the winners are male or female. This person happened to be female but we have had men win before!

    If you never enter, I can promise you will never win. And you have the exact same chance as every other person to win. It's a random drawing using the website random.org. :-)
