      I do have one - 7 as the birth date! But I probably need a few more to lift one to a really lucky state ... let me see, a cinnamon stick in the wallet should not be too tough an order, and maybe one could make and keep shaking a money jar too!

      Nice hub. :)

      Thanks for stopping by Varna:) well I feel there is something which controls the strings of happenings in our daily life and determines the outcome of events, no doubt God Almighty is the one who is the sole decider of things and plans but yes there must be something called luck...there has to be!
