  I will be taking Robert Pagliarini's advice. He is the author of "Sudden Wealth". He recommends that you create a one or two line reply. Memorize it and use it when asked for a gift, loan, or anything else. It could be something like this,"I cannot reply to your request now but I will give your information to my Financial Adviser" "He will get back to you with more questions".  If they continue to ask just repeat your reply.

 This is creating a business like exchange. Go Slow. "He or She who has the gold rules". They play by your rules now.

My reply would be:

"See the PA Legislature as they now have an extra $10,150,000!"

    Cool delS, I like your thinking. Especially in Maryland, an anonymous State. Cheers

      8th-largest US jackpot ever

      By Todd Northrop

      July has shaped up to be a sizzling hot month for lottery jackpot chasers, first with Mega Millions, and now with Powerball, each offering up a grand prizes of around a half-billion dollars.

      Between now and Saturday evening, anyone can walk into a store and buy a lottery ticket for a couple of bucks that has the potential of winning $478 million — which may quite possibly be much higher by the time the Powerball drawing kicks off Saturday night.

      That's because lotteries typically are very conservative in their initial jackpot estimates, like we saw with Wednesday's Powerball drawing. The initial estimate Sunday morning was $422 million, but by the time all the proceeds were counted before the drawing Wednesday night, the jackpot had swelled to $434.8 million.

      Seasoned lottery players keep an eye on the lump-sum cash value of the jackpot, and the initial estimate is just as eye-popping: $330.6 million. And likely to grow even bigger before Saturday.

      When compared against all lottery drawings conducted in United States lottery history, Saturday's Powerball jackpot ranks 8th all-time, and the cash value also ranks as number 8 among all cash values in history. (See the top 25 United States annuity and cash value jackpots below.)

      Of course, the big winner (or winners) will have to pay taxes on their prize, so USA Mega has a handy Jackpot Analysis page available to calculate the federal and state taxes that would be withheld upon the award of your nice big jackpot.

      This is the largest Powerball jackpot since — well, since the largest Powerball jackpot of all time was awarded in the January 13, 2016, drawing. Three winning tickets from California, Florida, and Tennessee split a world-record $1.6 billion grand prize.

      Saturday's mammoth jackpot is the result of 23 consecutive draws without a winner.  The run-up started as a $40 million prize on May 11.

      The winning numbers for Wednesday, July 27, 2016 were 10, 47, 50, 65, and 68, with Powerball number 24.  The Power Play number was 2.

      Even though nobody won the jackpot Wednesday, 4 lucky players matched the first 5 numbers for a $1,000,000 prize: 1 from Florida, 1 from Ohio, 1 from Pennsylvania, and 1 from Virginia.

      Only one of the second-prize winners purchased the Power Play option — the ticket sold in Florida.  Because that ticket was purchased with the Power Play option their second-prize win is automatically doubled to $2 million.  Power Play is not available in California, because the fixed nature of the prize increase offered in Power Play is not compatible with California's pari-mutuel payouts. By law, California awards all prizes on a pari-mutuel basis, meaning the prizes will change each drawing based on the number of tickets sold and the number of tickets that won at each prize level.

      54 tickets matched four white numbers plus the Powerball and won $50,000.  Of those tickets, 7 were purchased with the Power Play option, increasing the prize to $100,000, and 7 of the tickets were sold in California, where the prize was worth $19,186 this drawing.

      Following the Wednesday drawing, the Powerball annuity jackpot estimate was raised $43.2 million from its previous amount of $434.8 million and the cash value was raised by $30.8 million from its previous amount of $299.8 million.

      The next Powerball drawing will take place Saturday night at 10:59 pm Eastern Time.

      When a Powerball ticket is purchased with the Power Play option for an extra $1 per ticket, any non-jackpot prize is increased according to a fixed prize schedule, which can be found on the Powerball Drawing Detail page at USA Mega, as well as on the Powerball Prize Payouts page at Lottery Post.

      Powerball is played in 44 states, plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.  Drawings are Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10:59 p.m. Eastern Time.  Tickets cost $2 each.

      Powerball lottery results are published within minutes of the drawing at USA Mega (www.usamega.com).  The USA Mega Web site provides lottery players in-depth information about the United States's two biggest multi-state lottery games, Mega Millions and Powerball.

      Top 25 United States lottery jackpots of all time

      Saturday's Powerball jackpot currently stands as the 8th-largest lottery jackpot of all time in the United States, and the 5th-largest Powerball jackpot ever.  Brisk sales will almost certainly push the jackpot estimate higher by draw time.

            I was going to go with "I have no comment at this time" if I would ever have a jackpot win,  because the liberal mainstream media is so dishonest.  I would definitely give a statement on facebook after I get paid.  I'm too politically incorrect for TV.

                i tried to resist but i couldn't. seems like you're going to have one heckuva time with your 400m cash or whatever amount you're dreaming of winning. just sitting back and watching it grow sounds like you will be having the time of your life. and by all means don't give any away, spend any, or loan any of it out or your nest egg won't grow as fast as you are probably aging. i sleep better knowing absolutely for sure that you won't win it. that fraud pagliarini's advice will only cause one to lose friends and gain enemy's. you certainly would be ostracized in your community if you stayed there. being whispered about behind your back and probably in front of it. they'd be saying "that old miser invested all the money with some financial advisor who is out celebrating one town over over this and she's not doling out a cent to anyone saying i cannot reply to your request now but i will give your information to my financial advisor  and he will get back to you with more questions". the town could use a couple of mil for infrastructure repair and she won't even "lend them some cash" never mind donate some. yes, we're jealous, envious and all that but the bottom line is we just don't like this person. hope she leaves town with her "money". and you don't care. i'll answer for you. it's my money and i will do with it as i please. i am going to convert it to cash and have it put in my coffin. probably sooner that you think.

                  Faber what a crock.  Music was talking about protecting the wealth and not being one of the statistics who lose it all. How do you know what will be given out, what charities will be involved?

                    Well as my granddaddy said: what others think of you is none of your business. So allow ppl their opinions. Unless they are being libelous or slanderous,I tend to ignore contemptuous remarks.  Its more a reflection on them then anything. 

                    How you invest is between you and your conscious. 

                    I've no qualms in winning and moving on in life. :)

                        Faber what a crock.  Music was talking about protecting the wealth and not being one of the statistics who lose it all. How do you know what will be given out, what charities will be involved? 

                        Yep, what a M*$$hole.  I think he gets snot-slinging drunk and after he kicks the dog for a while and it runs off, he has to come in here and show how good he is at run-on sentences.

                            One-Day, Do you want to be the sole winner on Saturday night? I do not understand your, "Hope it rolls".

                             I am expecting $200 million. Just imagine what you could do with all that cash.Dance

                             I've been rich and I've been poor. Believe me, rich is better.

                              i tried to resist but i couldn't. seems like you're going to have one heckuva time with your 400m cash or whatever amount you're dreaming of winning. just sitting back and watching it grow sounds like you will be having the time of your life. and by all means don't give any away, spend any, or loan any of it out or your nest egg won't grow as fast as you are probably aging. i sleep better knowing absolutely for sure that you won't win it. that fraud pagliarini's advice will only cause one to lose friends and gain enemy's. you certainly would be ostracized in your community if you stayed there. being whispered about behind your back and probably in front of it. they'd be saying "that old miser invested all the money with some financial advisor who is out celebrating one town over over this and she's not doling out a cent to anyone saying i cannot reply to your request now but i will give your information to my financial advisor  and he will get back to you with more questions". the town could use a couple of mil for infrastructure repair and she won't even "lend them some cash" never mind donate some. yes, we're jealous, envious and all that but the bottom line is we just don't like this person. hope she leaves town with her "money". and you don't care. i'll answer for you. it's my money and i will do with it as i please. i am going to convert it to cash and have it put in my coffin. probably sooner that you think.

                              I imagine you would be the first one to crow on here if music won and then blew it all in 5 years.
