    I want to make a applescript so that when I save it as a application and open the application it will automatically search the tennessee lottery and tell me what the power ball, mega millions, and cash 3 number are. I found this script that does exactly what Im talking about but its for weather.....

    --this is the city code. Search the code for your city on http://weather.yahoo.com/
    set CityCode to 12773861
    --temperature format
    set t_format to "F"
    --voiceover format
    set v_format to "S"
    --say present condition
    set a_format to "Y"

    set IURL to "http://weather.yahooapis.com/forecastrs… & CityCode

    --downloading the file using curl
    set file_content to (do shell script "curl " & IURL)
    --looking for the line with actual condition
    set theText to text ((offset of "yweather:condition" in file_content) + 1) thru -1 of file_content
    set sub_1 to text ((offset of "\"" in theText) + 1) thru -1 of theText

    --today conditions found
    set actual_condition to text 1 thru ((offset of "\"" in sub_1) - 1) of sub_1

    --looking for actual temperature temperature
    set sub_1a to text ((offset of "temp=" in sub_1)) thru -1 of sub_1
    set sub_1b to text ((offset of "\"" in sub_1a) + 1) thru -1 of sub_1a
    set actual_temp to text 1 thru ((offset of "\"" in sub_1b) - 1) of sub_1b

    if t_format is equal to "C" then
    set actual_temp to (5 / 9) * (actual_temp - 32) as integer
    end if

    --looking for today forecast
    set theText to text ((offset of "yweather:forecast" in file_content) + 1) thru -1 of file_content
    set sub_2 to text ((offset of "\"" in theText) + 1) thru -1 of theText

    --maximum and minimum temperatures found
    set today_min_temp to word 9 of sub_2
    set today_max_temp to word 12 of sub_2
    if t_format is equal to "C" then
    set today_min_temp to (5 / 9) * (today_min_temp - 32) as integer
    set today_max_temp to (5 / 9) * (today_max_temp - 32) as integer
    end if

    --looking for today forecast condition (a bit tricky)
    set sub_3 to text ((offset of "text" in sub_2) + 1) thru -1 of sub_2
    set sub_4 to text ((offset of "\"" in sub_3) + 1) thru -1 of sub_3
    set today_forecast to text 1 thru ((offset of "\"" in sub_4) - 1) of sub_4

    --looking for tomorrow forecast
    set sub_5 to text ((offset of "yweather:forecast" in sub_4) + 1) thru -1 of sub_4
    set sub_6 to text ((offset of "\"" in sub_5) + 1) thru -1 of sub_5

    --maximum and minimum temperatures found
    set tomorrow_min_temp to word 9 of sub_6
    set tomorrow_max_temp to word 12 of sub_6
    if t_format is equal to "C" then
    set tomorrow_min_temp to (5 / 9) * (tomorrow_min_temp - 32) as integer
    set tomorrow_max_temp to (5 / 9) * (tomorrow_max_temp - 32) as integer
    end if

    --looking for tomorrow forecast condition (a bit tricky)
    set sub_7 to text ((offset of "text" in sub_6) + 1) thru -1 of sub_6
    set sub_8 to text ((offset of "\"" in sub_7) + 1) thru -1 of sub_7
    set tomorrow_forecast to text 1 thru ((offset of "\"" in sub_8) - 1) of sub_8

    --VoiceOver Section
    set myTime to time string of (current date)
    set myParts to words of myTime
    set mySpeak to (item 1 of myParts) & " " & (item 2 of myParts) & " "
    say "Good morning, it is " & mySpeak using "Alex"
    if a_format is equal to "Y" then
    say "Outside it is, " & actual_condition & ", and " & actual_temp & " degrees " using "Alex"
    end if
    if v_format is equal to "L" then
    say "Today: " & today_forecast & ". Temperature: between " & today_min_temp & " and " & today_max_temp & " degrees.
    Tomorrow: " & tomorrow_forecast & ". Temperature: between " & today_min_temp & " and " & today_max_temp & " degrees" using "Alex"
    else
    say "Today: " & today_forecast & ", between " & today_min_temp & " , and " & today_max_temp & " degrees.
    Tomorrow: " & tomorrow_forecast & ", between " & tomorrow_min_temp & " ,and " & tomorrow_max_temp & " degrees" using "Alex"
    say "I say again, Today: " & today_forecast & ". Temperature: between " & today_min_temp & " ,and " & today_max_temp & " degrees"
    end if
