When I win I'll have my lawyer put out a release referring to me as a short, fat Asian woman who bought the ticket just after relocating from San Francisco specifically because none of those things is true. Hopefully that will keep the vast majority of people from ever considering that I'm the winner. Perhaps the release will also include a short list of charities that all my friends know I wouldn't give a dime to.

Much like the lawyer from Long Island is trying to convince people in Simpsonville that none of their neighbors won the lottery, any information I release will include the goal of pointing the spotlight away from me.

LOL sounds like a bright idea thar, KY Floyd jejejeje

but I'd add a couple items to that descript IE :  born in America and a Republican Stooges

        I am ready to win the Powerball tonight !!!

        Not with the numbers that came out tonight. I wonder if we'll see a mid-day jump by Wednesday.

          I believe that Power Ball will roll over tonight. It might be a long night though. 

           All the losers in tonight's PB want a roll over for another chance to strike it rich!Hyper

              Mea Culpa. I guessed wrong. This is not a long night after all. I apologize.

               For those players who play in States that do not tax winnings the amount we can work with is 

               $211,050,000.00 Cash Lump Sum After Tax Take Home. 

               I can get that number by multiplying the Lump Sum $355,000,000.00 by .63 

               355 X .63 = $211,050,000.00 

               

               I just viewed Michael W. Boone on YouTube. His Financial record is posted at the last part of the interview. Client retention is one of those qualities that is measured.

                   noise-gate, Great photo and good advice. Lottery dreaming is what most of us do when we buy a ticket. It only takes one ticket to win.

                   Why a Beamer? BMW. I am at that age where I am looking for comfort when I travel the roads and highways of California.  I want to be relaxed when I reach my destinations. 

                   As the sole jackpot winner tonight here in CA I will win $190,000,000.00 That is after all taxes are paid. Although I expect to pay more taxes on the income that will be generated by investments.

                  I will hire a Certified Financial Adviser, a CFP who will be my quarterback and help me locate the other team members. Legal, Accounting, Media relations, and more.

                  See Ya! 

                  Music, why would you allow your CFP to pick your other team members? Those assessments should be independently done, especially your counsel.

                  Je vous salue, Marie, pleine de grace.  We will rebuild!

                    "Michael W. Boone"

                    Per the website . . .

                    "By spreading your investments across different kinds of stocks, bonds, and cash equivalents, your portfolio is able to participate in a variety of market sectors while seeking to reduce overall risk. While no single investment approach can guarantee success, asset allocation can temper the ups and downs of the market and enhance portfolio returns."

                    Another strategy would be to do your own research, such as Morningstar, and select your own roller coaster rides.  But that would require taking initiative and personal responsibility . . as compared to having someone else to blame.
