Buy a bigger house and adopt homeless children.

Suspiciousness is one way of saying that one do not want to know the truth. It is the best way to keep the mind empty and the spirit restless.

      1. I'd just buy a new umbrella.

         So , I thought this would be fun. Obviously the "big one" is a different amount for different people but let's just put it at a cool mil. Personally, my first priority is getting my family out of this wretched apartment and into a house. What about you?

        thanks for posting this,made me realize i need to write things down,

        instead of just day dreaming about it.

        did't vote yet, need to write my list first.

            I want to get out of debt and help my mother get out of debt and help my sister and husband out of debt.  With one million I could do that and help my niece through college.  That is good for now.-weshar75

                      Great idea!

                      And you could clean up on Pick 3 and Pick 4 with the missing formula!
