    I wouldn't stay anywhere for long.  I would travel the entire world and experience life with no regrets.

          This may sound stupid but even if I don't win, at least I had the money to play. Yesterday I saw a woman who did not even have a dollar left to buy a Mega Millions ticket once she filled up her car with gas!!! So charity would be one of the areas my financial guys would be required to budget into my "How would I spend it" list, not to mention debt elimination, big new home, nice car, college fund for kids, vacations and most in importantly the sign that says RETIRED!!!

          A few years ago, billionaire Warren Buffett advised  "Investors should remember that excitement and expenses are their enemies. And if they insist on trying to time their participation in equities, they should try to be fearful when others are greedy and greedy only when others are fearful."

            I agree. Retiring is one thing I want to be able to do for me and my mom.

              I'd probably spend the first few years traveling the world.  I'd live in my countries of choice for 3-6 months, that way I get to experience the culture and try all the nummy food.  Probably also make sure I was always in a warm place.  Snow is bad when you have to deal with it for months on end.  Any charity money I gave out would be anonymously and I would give it directly to places/people I knew needed it or would put it to the best use.

              Once home from my travels I would buy every gaming system known to man and all the games to go with it, hire myself a personal chef, and then live in glorious splendour.

                I'd buy a motorhome with a "garage" in the back and travel.Whenever I heard of a natural disaster somewhere in the United States,I would pull into the nearest Wal-Mart and buy every blanket they had and then I would fill the "garage" of the motorhome with things that displaced people need,toiletries,medicines,etc.Then I would drive to the disaster area and start passing out this stuff to those in need.When the "garage" becomes empty I would drive to another Wal-Mart and refill it and either drive back to the disaster scene or head for another disaster scene.I would always keep the "garage" stocked up and ready to respond.I would enjoy driving to places I've always wanted to see,but I'd be prepared to respond to disasters and emergencys.The Red Cross can't do it all and the goverment has proven that it is incompetent when it comes to emergencies.
