If the Powerball Lottery Jackpot is hit this Wednesday. I hope it more than one jackpot winner. Let a few people start 2016 off with a bang.

it will be two winners, uncle sam and myself. no sense in being anything less then realistic on that prediction.

If it rolls there is no way I'm using a self serve, dern thing had a paper jam and when they got the paper unstuck the ticket was ruined. Our state refuses to reprint or reimburse for these incidences. At least at a clerk operated one they are more apt to call in the error and get permission to reproduce. 

The joke in my area is that its the person who is out picking up milk or refueling and they randomly buy that one ticket, I gotta lot of milk to drink !! Wink

~~Is it true, Is it kind,Is it necessary. ~~~

 Thanks be to the giving numbers: 1621,912,119 02014

       May I suggest life insurance for winners. Like Term Life. This would pay the estate taxes. Term insurance is the way to go. thank you.Big Smile

            A friend of mine husband has the 650S model, as a joke he offered me to sit in the passenger seat and it felt like i was sitting in a deep bucket. You have to be nimble and flexible to get in and out of those cars.

              I'd most likely keep it in my garage and stare at it longingly.

                  Can't get excited about Powerball anymore. Terrible odds, $2 ticket price, and poor lower prize payouts make it one of the worst games to play...

                  In a word, I don't agree.

                  OK, but I'll now say, yes, you have a couple good points. 

                  BUT still, $300 Million samolians! (before taxes)

                  If you win that, and all to yourself, you'll have a change of heart.

                  I'm certainly hoping I'll be the sole winner this coming Wednesday.

                    You are so right duckman, the odds are terrible, the price is high, and the lower level prize payouts poor.  However, I still bought a ticket because I CAN'T win it without one.

                      I'm feeling a jackpot win coming my way!

                          When I win it I will follow Will Rogers' advice,"I am more concerned about the return of my money than the return on it."  I will invest $50,000,000.00 of the Lump Sum into CDARS. Look at it on CDARS.com 

                           Good Luck to all LP Members and Staff!! Come on and win it.Party

                          Good point, music.  CDARS is actually very sage advice for someone who can't stand the turmoil of higher risk investments, or someone who wants a protected large account.  My understanding, for those who are not familiar with CDARS (Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service), is one would make a deposit (say the net on a $300 million lottery win) to a CDARS network member institution.  That institution would then place the funds into CD's issued by other network member institutions, staying under $250K with each.  Thereby maintaining FDIC coverage on all of the accounts, but managed under one consolidated statement. 

                          There are two member banks very close to me.  I'm ready!  Dance

                             Please call your member banks and double check if there is a limit to how much can be covered in total. It might be $50,000,000.00 total. 

                             I would also ask, "can I move after opening a CDARS account?"

                             Thank You realtorjim for your encouragement.Cool

                              CDARS insurance caps out at 50M$.

                              I'm wondering if one could have multiple CDARSs by using corporations or LLCs?
