                She can always open a dance studio once she blows through the cash.

                She's gonna need new shoes first.

                  This sounds too good to be true!!!!  She played the lottery with the same numbers for 20 years.  Then, out of the blue, Maria buys a quick pick, and those number randomly chosen turn out to be the exact same numbers she played all these years.  And, this time she wins the BIG JACKPOT!!! The chances of something like this happening must be astronomical!!!!  It's like FATE or GOD or LUCK intervened.

                  AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!! OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                      No TAXES!!!!  How AWESOME is that?  When it comes to the lottery, you should be able keep the entire jackpot.  I wonder if the $40 million is in cash or is there an annuity?  Will she have to lose about half to get the cash lump sum now?  Dance

                        im calling BS on that. if true the lady of luck has some special plans for this family.

                        she had luck, lets hope they have the wisdom. a mill each for the kids and grand kids should still leave maybe 30 ish mill, say 25mill. after kids have blown that   mill tell em to get a job.

                            No annuity either. One big check/wire transfer in about 5 weeks.

                              RantGood for her and her family. It is a blessing and appears as though it was truly meant for her to win. Bitter people always try to predict the dismise of others. It's a shame to see people say she will be broke in 5-7 years or whatever, if we worked harder on optimism and predicting the numbers we wouldnt have time to dig ditches for others to fall in. We reap what we sow and the pit you dig for someone else may very well be your pit that you fall in. Buying houses and cars for her children wont have her broke, she didnt say she was buying mansions and Bugatti veyron super sports cars for them all. The envious comments from some of u sound like IF u ever win you are going to put your money in a glass case and just look at it.no you are going to spend it.DUH!!!They can make their money work for them and not go broke. I choose to believe this hard working family is going to be set for life and leave an inheritance for their children children. How many of you have stay at home wives and if you are a woman leaving bitter comments soaked in envy are you a stay at home wife? I absolutely love it that man worked hard and based on biblical standards he worked and took care of the family LIKE A REAL MAN IS SUPPOSE TO!!A woman should not be forced to work it is a choice for her to work.How did I get here? Anyway again I am very happy for this family and I wish them well for centuries to come.May God continue to bless you richly.PartySee Ya!

                              Pay less, win more & world peaceSee Ya!
