Or do you feel you " owe" it to yourself to remain where you did most of your growing up, you part of the town till casket time ?

    It would be according to how much I won. If I won an extremely LARGE amount....like MILLIONS, I'd probably re-locate to another town, but not too far away...but then again, that would also be according to just how many mililons I won......If I won so much that I got the chance to finally travel to other areas of the country and liked the areas, then, who knows, I might move to another state all together. But then again, I'd probably have enough to have more than one residence and I could then just travel back and forth..Imagination is a wonderful thing, isn't it? lol....I'd really like to be able to keep my life the same as much as I possibly could However, if I won so much that I had to make very extreme changes, you surely wouldn't see me complaining because just knowing the rest of my life was financially secure would make the extreme changes worth it!!!!!!!

      The last place I'd want to end up living out my days is the town where I grew up. I swear that town is against any form of growth, though they did manage to grow 1% since 2000.

        I'm in a good spot for when society learns the true meaning of the word "unsustainable" and it's unavoidable aftermath.

        I'd like to do a little globe hoppin' though in the meantime.

            What's the difference between rich and wealthy in your estimation?

              Yes.   I always wanted a small house in the country.

              love to nibble those micey feet.

                I grew up in Detroit, it is for all practical purposes a giant ( snip) hole, I would build a fortified compound for all my family who so desired to live there.

                  As Chris Rock put it one time......Shaquille O'neal is rich....he went out and bought a bentley when he was signed to the Lakers....120 million dollar contract.....the man that owned the team....wrote the check and didn't blink.....that's wealthy....

                    That makes sense.

                    Chris Rock is still a schmuck though.

                          Or do you feel you " owe" it to yourself to remain where you did most of your growing up, you part of the town till casket time ?

                          I left the neighborhood I grew up in years ago and now it would be time to move on again.
