        I would probably move to Indianapolis or close to it because (Indiana) jackpot winners have to claim their jackpot at Hoosier Lottery headquarters, which is in Indianapolis, and if I'm gonna be winning the Pick 6 jackpot a bunch of times it won't take me that long to do get my money.

          Warm is nice but were you decide can be expensive -- islands --Brazil , Mexico  no english --Canada ??? Go with the geese south then north --- money --heck enjoy life ....but you still need a place called home , and just  to up and leave all your family and friends, that's not right  . So where you live now, when you hit: is home . After that you travel to the wishful places until it's due time to retire ! Remember it always seem greener over the other side of the fence: but there is now place like HOME:  till a point ---home is where the heart is !---VERY SAPPY THOUGHT ! BUT TRUE TO MEUS Flag

            the tax situation here in tennessee would be great for a big winner but if people found out where i lived and asked me for money i may buy a house somewhere else to and lay low for a while. i dont care about the weather i just want a city where i can relax.

              I don't know exactly, but I'd have a summer home in the hills of one of the mountain states like Montana, Idaho, Utah where it never gets over 85 degrees.  And I'd have a winter home somewhere warmer like southern California or Arizona.

                I'd like to live in a modest house in new england, hopefully cape cod.  I wouldn't want to live in a huge house.  I'd rather not let people know I had a lot of money.  I think that those people who win the lottery and buy huge extravagant houses are stupid.

                I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

                  Australia, would be home for 7 months out of the year (including all those millions of dollars)! Then 5 months here in the States (with 10% of those big bucks here).

                        I'd stay right where I am, and I would travel south to a warm weather city in January-February, a different place every year. I would not own any homes outside of my main residence where I am now.

                              I would continue to maintain my present house and perhaps another one in a more upscale area of Chicago (would have to do that to have a suitable place to park my luxury cars...luxury cars in my current neighborhood are Mercedes, Volvos, and Lexus...my type of luxury cars are Maseratis and Bentleys).  I would also purchase houses in Florida, Atlanta, and Texas so I would have places to stay in overseeing my financial service operations as well as my trucking enterprise.  Retire...no way.  Only losers retire.  I would actually work harder after winning.  My belief is the harder one works, the harder and more satisfying it is when you do play...just ask Tiger Woods.  It seems that the fellas and ladies that don't continue to work hard run into some sort of trouble with law enforcement or have major problems in their personal lives (just pick a celebrity who is in the news for all the wrong reasons).  Of course, I would travel, but my main focus would be on capitalizing on legitimate money making opportunities THAT I HAVE THOROUGHLY RESEARCHED.  Right now, I know a thing or two about financial services and over the course of the next year, I will learn all I need to know about the trucking industry.  My goal would be to make more through my business enterprises than from the market returns of my winnings.  That way, I could never end up like Jack you know who.

                              Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                              The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!
