My mother likes the crossover Cadillac in red.  I don't know what it is called but it is nice.-weshar75

The 2012 SRX Crossover, comes in several trim versions. Top of the line, luxury edition caps out at about 50k. Very Sweet ride indeed.

Wouldn't ever go for red. Black or charcoal would be my colors. Cheers

                I spend my lazy down-time browsing Trulia for expensive homes in the area, the most I'd spend is $5m. The main reason is size, I don't need something with any more than 4 bedrooms, which keeps prices somewhat down. I would likely be spending less than $1.3m on my first home, but overall $5m is the max for a "mansion".

                If we're talking a place to live in general, that would move up to $8m or so for a place in NYC. It would probably be much less, but I've seen places up to that amount that I would like and had dreamed about back when we had the record jackpot.

                  Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                  There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                          When I win, I wouldn't want to "keep up with the Kardashians".  I would just buy a moderately more expensive home than I currently live in.  Why buy a multi-million dollar home when I plan to spend majority of my time traveling?  Why buy a home at all?  Well I would look to buy one that would enable me to rent out part of it.  So I am actually thinking about some of those foreclosed townhouses in Chicago would be good candidates.  That way, I would be getting some current return on my investment.  As for my traveling, I would set my annual travel budget based on ROI I achieve so as to not erode my principle.

                          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!

                            What are those abandoned Air Force missle silos up in the Dakotas going for?

                            Anyone know if there's any left?

                            That or always thought it would be neat to live in a lighthouse.

                            There's a former Cold War missile silo in the Adirondacks (northern New York) for sale which has been partially converted to living quarters, including building a house on top.  The silo and almost 20 acres of land will cost you $750K, and there's a surrounding subdivision -- mostly undeveloped save for a log cabin that is rented out as a vacation home -- with a private airstrip which is available, in pieces or as a whole, for up to another $1.01 million.
