A home in a gated community makes a lot of sense when the press hounds you like they have hounded Mrs. MacKenzie.

I Agree!

 

I know for a fact , if I won the lottery for a large amount of money , I will move into

a Gated Community or hire security guards ..... I don't want NO huge home like

6,000 sq ft , that's to much of a home . I feel 3,500 sq ft it's fine , the bigger home

you've the more you've to spend on taxes , maintence , etcccc ....I have a average home

and believe me it's enough for 2 people and it takes awhile to clean , that's why you ,

make less mess , the less you've to clean .. I know you're thinking with that money you

can hire maids etcc , I don't want a bunch of strangers in my house , who's to say you

can trust maids , chefs , gardeners , etccc , they're only thinking of one thing $$$$$$$..

      I bet her Son and his Boyfriend picked out a house with stairs so they know when Mom is coming.Approve

         There's a master bedroom on the main floor and that's where she sleeps .

          She doesn't want to walk up any stairs unless she has an elevator in that house.

        I Agree!The gal that she supposedly cut in front of didn't force the issue so why should we?

        I Agree!I Agree!

         

          The younger lady should've stayed in line , if she didn't want anyone to get in it . 

          WE don't hear the younger lady complaining about it lately .......end of story ........

          Gloria needs to end joy life , and not to worry about anything ..........her lawyers , financial advisors , CPA ,

         daughters and sons need to ALL LOOK AFTER Gloria's finance ........after all they're all recieving $$$ off it.

          Gloria deserve Privacy...............

          How did she change?

           

          I don't think the money really changed her, she has nearly $300 million and she bought a house for $1m.. She's still an old penny pinching cheap skate!

          I doubt we will be hearing about her going broke anytime soon.

          The money won't change me when I win a large jackpot, it'll change my lifestyle though.

                That's a good point ............The Money Won't Charge Me When I Win A Large  Jackpot ,It'll Change My Lifestyle Through .....

            All I can say is congratulation to Miss Gloria for a being the largest single jackpot winner in American lottery history!!! 84 years old, she derserves to live the rest of her life wealthy. She really needs her son to be there to help her, take care of her, so she can stay out of a nursing home!!! Really enjoying the rest of her life here on this earth! I don't want a bunch of strangers in my house either, who's to say if you can trust anyone who has this much money to live there and cook, clean, gardening. Anyone with a greedy mind could kidnap her and hold her for ransom. So what could have or should have been, is not what happen! She won, that's it! So let's all be glad it was her and not some rich person who was already wealthy!! Anyone of us could have won, we all think it should have been one of us! But it wasn't any of us! Let's all be happy for her, and let her live in Peace!! I will keep playing the lottery until the day I win or die! Which ever one comes first! Just found out yesterday my brother-in-law has prostrate cancer, my sister is really upset, don't know what stage it's in yet. He will be going tomorrow for the test results of how far along it is! 54 years old, he Alway watched what he ate, they both are health nut too! But death knows no age! Be Happy and safe today folks, visit your Family and tell them you love them, live each day as if it is your last, cause one day it will be here! God Bless you all and GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF YOU!!!Patriot

              I would buy 50 acres in Idaho and build my 3000 square ft house to get away from everyone.

                  She's finally starting to enjoy her Jackpot. Good for her!! Jackpots aren't ment to be horded, they are meant to be spent.

                    I would be pissed if the press publicly gave away my new address..

                    They put a Huge target on her, plus they showed what the house looked like.

                    I would go Balistic...Mad

                    I would be too but it's all a matter of public records.  That's why you can go on a tour of star's homes in Hollywood...and why they have such extravagant security systems.

                      The difference between Hollywood stars and most lottery winners is that Hollywood stars thrive on the fame while most lottery winners just want to go on living a normal life without the fame.

                            Glen Kernan Country Club in Jacksonville where the home is at is a couple of miles from where I live. It is upscale, but not the most expensive area to live around here. Location wise, it is nice because the beaches are just a few miles to the east and downtown is a few miles the other way. Shopping and restaurants at The St. Johns Town Center, a relatively new and huge outdoor shopping complex, is only a couple of miles away. The University of North Florida is also only a mile or two away.

                            It's a great location...
