          I don't think this West guy was lying. I bet he's just getting advice and getting all his ducks in a row. I don't begrudge the guy anything though I do wish I was the one with all the money planning problems, lol.

            Hehehe - getting his ducks in a row? Hehehehe.  Don't count your chickens before they hatch might be a better phrase.

            There is nothing about him to envy, except - MAYBE - the winnings.  This link was posted on another thread by someone else:

            It validates what has been said here a million times.

            Even though you will be very excited and want to tell everyone you know, it is extremely important not to tell anyone (other than possibly your spouse or best friend--someone whom you can thoroughly trust). Especially do not tell anyone from the media, at least not before lottery officials have certified that your ticket was a winning one.

            Cheers

              Thanks so much for the article. I though I'd read all the good lottery related articles on the web, but this is one I haven't seen yet. Very interesting. I don't know why West would talk to the press before validating his ticket. Doesn't seem very safe or smart. At least I know what NOT to do if I'm every so lucky.
