    I keep dreaming of a Ford Expedition lol not quite as fancy as your Bentley GT!  Good Luck

    Thank you! I have actually liked Rolls-Royce/Bentley since I was about 8 years old. Half a century! There are some things that just speak to you. The craftmanship of the Bentleys is just so lacking in so many other cars. & the leather is unreal in person!

    Best wishes to you also!

        With about $80,000,000 after taxes, you could have at least 2 cars and never ever miss the money !!!

        $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

        My "kids" are older, so they would have to have their own cars to "mess" up ! Thumbs Up

             I have been away for quite a while and it seems, a lot has happened when I went incognito, LOL. $203 million, MY GOD! After taxes (we know we have to pay up, we have no choice in that matter), it would be an approximate $80 million, GOD, the things ANYONE  can do with that kind of money. Well, good luck to everyone this Saturday, may a deserving person win it, this weekend.

              I Agree! The things that someone can do with that kind of money. Normally when the jackpot get this big it goes to a retired couple or a lottery group.The retired couple normally say it will not change their life much and leave the money with kids and grand kids.The lottery groups split the money up into a hundred parts and have enough left for a car and a vacation.Bandit

                    Well I'm retired, never married or had kids but do have a sibling with kids that I only hear from around Christmas so I would spend my time trying to spend it helping the local economy.

                      It is good to hear that you would help others RJOh if you were to win . What gets me is those people who win a enormous jackpot like this and state that the money will not have an effect on their life and nothing will change but a new truck. I think people like that should not even play. Bat

                        Very true, there are some very good causes out there that you could donate to like the March of dimes, breast cancer research, the red cross and the american heart association. Not to mention what you can do for your comunity, i live in a very small town and know our school and food bank would love any donations they could recieve. I know for my family and all the medical bills and everything else it would be a blessing to recieve a windfall like this!

                          I have been faithful to a set of two numbers for more than 5 years now. Maybe this is the time. Maybe not. We'll see, won't we? :)

                          That money's gone fo ever

                            Sounds like you got the idea if I won a lottery jackpot I would give it all away to others. 

                            You misread my statement, I didn't say I would help others, I said I would help the local economy by spending my winnings instead of storing it away for the future as you implied most retired people do. 

                            At my age my future is now and there are lots of things and services I would buy before I died if I had the money.   Building a new homes, buying a new car or two every year, hiring people and services  to maintain my home and me would help the local economy.  Providing jobs for people instead of charity is the way I would do it.
