amazing! finally 2 people (noise-gate) and (hotslot3) who actually get it. good solid posts! they were not obligated to do anything for anybody or anytown. but by choosing to remain there they had to something to save face in that community. i've ball park calculated the interest daily on 130,000,000 and at a modest 5% it comes to around 18,000.00 a day! i'm willing to bet cindy's husband wanted both vehicles and probably a new house with a 3 car garage. but cindy nixed that as their current home is probably liveable and she made him choose between the camaro or the more practical truck. another day and half of interest earnings would cover the camaro but tightwad cindy put her probably overweight foot down. the land purchase, ballfield, and fire station might cost them less than 2 weeks interest income. yet, people continue to laud these people as saints and root for them to increase their net worth which if cindy has her way (we know who wears the pants in that family) will increase to 190,000,000.00 in 10 years. good for them. it appears they will never spend any of the original 130,000,000.00. i for one hope they get bilked.

Thanks faber. Glad to hear you read and agreed with some of my musings. Good to know some people are reading these replies and myself and others aren't just typing-in-the-wind, so to speak. LOL

I also agree with points you made in earlier replies here. What's the point in playing the lottery in the first place if not to live it up should lady luck ever bless you with a supernatural win! especially at their age...

And for the life of me I don't know how they could continue to stay in Missouri for many reasons. 1. The Jealous neighbors are 100% secretly very jealous of you now. 2. There are much, much better places to live then some redneck nowhere-town in Missouri with their new very, very rich status. The possibilities for them are endless. To just be sitting home in the old house in Missouri still is VERY unimaginative of them. They could literally be living like Kings and Queens everyday for the rest of their life and never go broke. But they choose to remain living modestly in Missouri. Bang Head They could have done that without ever winning the lottery of this size. Yes Nod

And I'm not talking about being a redneck half-wit with their money like David Edwards. They could live like royalty off just the interest alone without ever really touching the principal. I mean what would a brand new mercedes-benz set them back 3 or 4 days of interest? And they passed on the camaro? Roll Eyes                          What these nice people have to understand is that they are not "normal millionaires" they are super-rich now. They are no longer normal people who can relate to the average joe because they don't and never will again have the same worries or cares that most people HAVE to deal with on a daily basis. Maybe they just haven't realized how rich they are yet? Bash

And for the record if anyone wonders, I'm not jealous. I hope they make sound investments and become billionaires. Just live a little is all I'm saying!! They couldn't possibly ever go broke unless they're related to David Edwards, right?  What the heck else is money for anyway!

    Lottery Post ( November 30th 2012)

     

    Our Cindy had this to say.... in part.

     

    We're still stunned by what's happened," said Cindy Hill, 51, who was laid off in June 2010. "It's surreal."

    The couple have three grown sons and a 6-year-old daughter they adopted from China five years ago. They said they are now considering a second adoption with their winnings, and they plan to help other relatives, including their grandchildren and nieces and nephews, pay for college. They're planning vacations, and their daughter, Jaiden, wants a pony. Mark Hill has his eye on a red Camaro.

    More immediately, they're preparing for "a pretty good Christmas" and anticipating an onslaught of requests for financial help.

    "When it's that big of a Powerball, you're going to get people coming out of the woodwork, some of them might not be too sane," Cindy Hill said. "We have to protect our family and grandkids."

     

    *** Just who are these " some of them might not be too sane".. Cindy?

     Are we expecting people flying in from Florida or the Bahamas asking for financial help?

        It's nice to know that there are still people like them. They know how to give back to their community. Still good things happen to good people.
