If I were able to remain somewhat anonymous, I would stay right here in the city where I live.   It seems like a nice place to "retire". But there is a beautiful gated community here that I would move to.  Of course Id have to build on a vacant land,  those  existing home are still way too big for me even with the millions I'm going to win.

      Well, my husband and I have all our plans written down when we come into a substantial amount of money.  I would love to win the Power Ball.  We have leased this 2600 Sq. ft. house for over 7 years.  The owners won't sell.  It is on 6 acres.  Commercialism is encroaching on our front door.  So it is time to move.

       I would tell my 3 children and 1 friend about the winnings and probably my 83 yr. old mom in CO.  I would get a lawyer and a accountant set up.  We would pay Tithes on the money to several ministries that we want to help.  I would also help some people I know of that needs some financial help.  I would reward some of the activity directors in senior living facilities where I have been playing and singing music for the last 7 years. 

      We would buy a luxury motor coach and travel alot.  I would take some friends and family on a 7 or 10 day cruise.  We would buy 50 acres or more in SC probably and build my 41 yr. old disabled son a home on, build my 29 yr. old son a home and us one if there is not a large ranch style home already on it.

      I would plan on spending the summers in Colorado and the winters in a warmer climate.

      We would probably invest some of our money into our daughter & her husband's residential property business.  They are already millionaires but I think they could use our help.

      I would record a CD of my music. 

      I would get 2 knee replacements and some health insurance.  And there you have it.

          I would definitely move out of state. It's way too cold here, they have income taxes, and my family are all south. That's three strikes, so I'm outta here! Hurray!

            This topic has been discussed here before and the answers are always interesting to me.

            I like the place I live, even though it isn't the place I grew up in, so I don't really want to move.  I live in a small house but I like it, so I don't really want to move out of it either so most likely, I'd stay put.

            However, the reality is if you can't keep your anomymity, you probably have to move.  I'd probably move to a mid sized city in one of the states that doesn't have state income tax, for obvious reasons, preferably where nobody knows me.

            I'd still of course try to keep a low profile, not going on spending sprees, etc.  I don't have this need to show off alot of people have so I live in a modest house, drive an inexpensive car, and just mind my own business.
