      I get that some of you are religious and would praise "GOD" but I'm looking for answers that aren't spiritual.

       

      No offense intended

              Roger that, dallas!

              And AMEN!

              The Left kicked God outta the schools and public places and I guess we're next.

              They don't even wanna hear the mention of His Holy Name.

              But The Word was made flesh and His Name is Jesus!

              I'm here to testify.

                If I was fortunate enough to win alot of money, and I would like to be intelligent enough to not tell anybody that i won the lottery.. I'd like to keep my mouth shut about it, and decide what I would ponder what to do with the money and then go to the lottery corporation!

                  Welcome to the LP Kordman,

                   

                  The first person I would tell is my hubby.

                  I am undecided about this.    I would want to tell my husband right away but I am afraid he would not be able to keep it quiet from our adult kids.    I would not want to tell them until everything is all set with the attorney and financial planner.   Because the more people that know the better the chances are that the word would get out.    I would never handle it the way the recent NJ PB winner did.

                    My ex. We're still good friends and share personal stuff.

                    And she's a financial genius who would be in my corner which doesn't hurt.

                    My greatest accomplishment is teaching cats about Vienna Sausage. When I need a friend, all I need do is walk outside, pop open a can, and every little critter in the neighborhood drops by to say "Hi!"

                        I would tell a 30 pack 'How I love thee, let me count the ways'  lol

                        for always sticking up for me.."

                            Okay, you can tell god first, at least you know she won't tell anyone.

                            No No   What harm to you if she believes? Yet you would harm her with your words.

                             

                            Hebrews 11:1  Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.

                             

                            After I have thanked God for such a blessing and pray for his guidence down the right path, I would then call a lawyer to handle the claiming, an estate lawyer to minimize taxes, a wealth manager to make sure the funds grow, and a CPA to keep the IRS at bay and the others in line. Somewhere in there, once I know my options, then I'll tell my grown kids and my parents, then my sisters.

                              I would tell my mother and we would both scream out loud because at that very moment you know that you are both going to be rich beyond normal.-weshar75
