      I'd pay off my bills,build a nice average home,buy my husband a new Toyota pick-up and me a new Honda,and then I'd be like Santa,trying to help others really in need.I'd set up a trust for my only grandchild,and me&my husband for retirement and take one day at a time!  Sun Smiley

          The most expensive thing I would have - a credit card bill!  I'm thinking, ten percent strictly for my ultimate pleasure over the next 12 months. Anything left from the ten percent can be used for funeral expenses!!!!   60% investment where the base can't be touched.  20% for friends.  The last 10% to my daughter, who will get the bulk of the 60% when I die.

          Cheers

              We would ofcource buy a house and pay off our bills. We would pay our familys bills also off.

              I would let my children pick out brandnew bedrooms sets!( their dream bedrooms)

              I would donate amount of money to each of the childrens schools. We would put money in stocks and savings. Take a summer long vacation.

              We would help others. We would not be dumb about it and have an attorney help us set this up.  Our 1st goal would be to help parents of handicapped children. and  parents single or married that just can't afforid a break from daily stresses.

              We would start a program where we would give away 24 vacations a year. ( two a month ) . We have already looked in to what it would take to do this and found places that would be willing to help with this. 

              What we would like to do is put so much in a high savings account and use half  the interest off that money each year to help others.

                  instantaccess I like your ideas.

                  *ducks from CASHONLY* I would choose the annuity. 

                  I know I would definitely build a new home so my (5) kids would each have their own room, pay off all my bills and help out my family members.  Based on my figures I would be quite happy with 10% of the annual check for living money, and 10% for retirement.  another 5% for helping others and the remaining 75% would go into trust for each of my 5 children for their education and futures.

                  My needs are simple and my husband is not willing to give up his career yet, so the travelling can wait  till we are older.

                    Interesting - equally for the hookers and hangings?  You can buy a lot of rope for that kind of money.  Hookers are already legal, in the great state of Nevada.  More for the rope.  Great idea.  The death sentance used to be public, and kept crime down. Not a lot of locksmiths making a living in country's where you get your hands chopped off for stealing! Went to a public hanging and headcopping once, in Africa.  Sure took the incentive out of the gangbangers.

                    Cheers

                      Truly Nothing... for me winning something remotely that big Clown is impossible - reality sets in over time & just thinking about such odds makes my head wanna explode!Yellow Eyes!

                      Besides, TaXe$ come to mind... and, more TaXe$... almost never ending (such optimism).

                      Actually, playing the lottery for me is simply a hobby just to get in on the smaller prizes (better odds?) so I may continue to play along & save some for that rainy day.
                      Coming so close to winning $41M once is proof how hard it is to get top prize... dreams are nice, but reality rulesStooges

                      Nice site, btw... guess some time will be spent here from now on out.

                          Ahhh, good old Atlanta.  I've travelled most of the world.  Atlanta was the first city I visited where the store clerks hide behind bullet proof glass.  There were more cameras in that little store then were used to film Cleopatra.  A city where honest people are hidden behind glass and the crooks roam the ailse.

                          Cheers

                              Prostitution has been around since Biblical times and will always be there. It serves a purpose I suppose. I can't understand it, but if it were legal & regulated (like in Nevada) there wouldn't be such a high risk. Most street whores have some kind of STD and many are drug addicts.

                              What about using the money to start a foundation that takes hookers off the street, cleans them up and teaches them to have some self-respect? As far as public hangings go, just what every kindergarten student needs to see! Gosh, and I had nightmares from watching Twilight Zone on tv. I disagree that violence ends violence. On the contrary, we have more gun related crimes than anywhere in the world because we are obsessed with guns. Although the Bible talks about and eye for an eye, it also talks about loving mankind.  As a concerned citizen, I want to see every child molester tortured and killed in public but I don't think it would stop the horror and would only show that we as a society are immoral.

                              "If we practice and eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth, soon the whole world will be blind and toothless."   Mahatma Gandhi
