I thought about this...I think is a phenomemal ideal, that's what i will have done...What would be the point of you having 100 million and each of your family lives in different state, a brother in this state a sister in this other state or this other city...I can't think of what a sad way to live...Why not have cousin, newphew, uncle all living in the same neighboorhood/subdivision and once a month you all gather by one of the family members and have Sunday barbecue with the entire family...Of course each member will have a big house...You set aside a couple of money and pay some money and have the cops watch the neighboorhood (of course a good neighboorhood)

Don't you all think so...

That's what i will have done if i win 100 million or 200 million...And what happen why don't we preach this to families as a GREAT AMERICAN VALUE...

How come no one has done it (and there have been 100 million dollar winners)...I think you live lonely, sad if every member lives separate...At least brothers and sisters should live together...I am not talking living next door even though that will be awesome but at least living on the next block..

i don't think no american family or big family lives in the same neighboorhood/subdivision...I don't think there is such a case in the world...

this way YOUR KIDS play with your sisters's kid in the same subdivision and your brothers's kids, etc and they go to the same school, etc...

I've heard of parents having 14 kids in their lifestime, but i've never heard of a big family living in the same area....

as little kids, what a way to grow up..

my question to you is if you was to win 100 or 200 million will you do it...

    My family live where they like living and their spouses have family in the area where they live.  Their kids consider that their home since they were born there.  They do come back to this area to visit family and former school friends who still live in the area but they have never thought about moving back even when they retire.  So if I ever won a large jackpot, I would probably share it with them but I would respect their wishes to live where they call home now even if it's hundreds of miles away.

            Lots of people in America live with their family's their whole lives and lots more don't mainly because they go where the jobs pay the most money or their careers take them.

            I have aunts and uncles niece's and nephews i haven't seen in 20 years if i were to win the lottery should i be expected bring them all together and take care of them even though they don't bother to call or write. I think not.

            Some family's are better of left alone to go their separate ways. If you didn't get along well when you were living together what make you think you would after you won the lottery.

            When i win the big one I'd just as soon depart from the whole family thing and let bygones be bygones. Not to worry some of them will be well compensated.

                Sure, I'd move them all to the same location up in the Arctic Circle.

                I have plenty of family near me, too much family. Not a very close "family" in the least bit and I have no desire to get close to them. They'd regularly bug me and several would try to steal from me or worse.

                  No. My family lives where they want to live and that is not necessarily in the same town or state.

                    Unfortunately, my family isn't very close.  Well, I'm close to my mother........buts thats about it.  Hard to explain.  I didn't have the "great American family" that everyone dreams of.  If I had to choose, I'd totally have a family like the Waltons...........now thats a family! lol.

                    All my family...whats left of it..is in N.California.  They like where they are at..I guess, so I wouldn't want them to move.  I'd just make a few of them really happy.  I liked where I grew up in Cali....but of course wanted to escape asap.  NOW........where I live now?  I HATE HATE HATE HATE it.......and would rather go back home lol.  Its too dry here...I need the ocean (close by), the woods (close by)....beautiful  rivers (close by)...MOISTURE! (everyday!)  So........if I ever get lucky with the lottery, I'm moving.  This is my husbands state.  The family farm is keeping us here....(for now) hehe

                    But ya, I would love to have that family gathering feel.  But looks like since I want to move away, our little family gatherings will have to start all over again through my hubby and I with our adorable children.

                    Which reminds me...what state should I move to after I win my $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$???

                    Surrender You can run, but you can't hide mighty Jackpot...surrender to me at once!

                        My family already lives in the same neighborhood. But just because you live in the same place doesn't mean you see each other all the time. I only see my aunts, uncles,cousins a couple of times a year and they live just a few blocks from me. Too much togetherness isn't always a good thing. Only my sister lives in another state but I doubt she'd come back to live here. People need their own lives.

                          i just wanted to remind you all of something we commonly forget..So far There is no civilization in the known universe but us, we are very unique, not only that but a lot of sperm competed among us to be created and become a human being, not only that we seem to be cluttered with ailments and for us to live separate is too much....I think we should live together share moments together that thing about one person living in a different state and calling each other long distance, i don't believe in that, we should try to live together with our family because when they are gone they are GONE...

At least brothers and sisters should live together...I am not talking living next door even though that will be awesome but at least living on the next block.."

                            I don't see why it would be necessary to win $100 million to live in the same area if a family wanted it. There are many reasons why siblings move out of the area where they grew up and jobs or spouses' families, might be the main reasons. Sure, you could buy them a nicer house in a nicer neighborhood, but what about their jobs and their families that could be in another state?

                            "my question to you is if you was to win 100 or 200 million will you do it..."

                            Nope, any gifts or money I give to my family and friends would be unconditional.

                              Its sounds like a good idea, but then again for most families it wont work.  We all need our separate lives...Just because they are your family doesnt me you necessarily will like living near that...;-)  I rather have nosey neighbors than family members,,haha
