Congratulations on your big $1 Million win Cindy!  Patriot

Certainly Kenan won much bigger $1 Million per year, FOR LIFE ... I would have rather more of those monies have been distributed within the good 'ole U.S.A.

Having several millions of dollars in my financial accounts means receiving several valuable services each day!

    He's the beneficiary of a treaty that exempts UK residents from US income tax. He grew up in NY, but was born in Turkey, so he may not be a US citizen.  Considering our taxation of US citizens in other overseas locations I don't see much reason for such a treaty to extend to US citizens. Even if moving to London made you exempt from US income tax, don't expect that to make up for paying UK income taxes.

    Well, I figured there might be a catch but I had to try anyway. LOL

          Her brother Kenan who won the million a year for life while already a multi-millionaire reminds me of one of my employers who I've mentioned before. He just seemed to have a horseshoe stuck where the sun don't shine.

          Every sports pool he ever got into at work he won - and he was already loaded. I think he got off on taking money away from his employees or he never would have put a buck in. He was too cheap (not a skinflint but just naturally frugal) to ever play the lottery or he probably would have won the jackpot every week.

          I never saw such a naturally lucky guy.

          I always wondered if his ambivalence towards money (his frugality notwithstanding) served to enhance his luck in attracting it. Also his confidence - he would never even entertain the notion that something he undertook would fail. I don't think I've ever known anybody else with that kind of confidence.

          That's always had me wondering if people are born lucky or if it's a subconscious process that can also be artificially introduced in lifestyle to harvest its benefits. Not necessarily the law of attraction per se but of its ilk.

            I quit scratch tickets ages ago when I realized that the lottery commission knows to distribute the tickets across the state. I like the online games which they have like no control over.

            That money's gone fo ever

              Yeah, I've learned not to buy scratch-offs in the city I live because invariably the winners come from no-name towns across Florida.

                The brother was already so wealthy that $930,000 has hardly made a difference in his life. There's something so fundamentally wrong about that.
