With my half of the jackpot I will pay off all my debt that I have and buy a nice bicycle since I can not drive or maybe I would hire a driver to take me places.  I have not decided which one would it be.  Maybe I should put an ad in the local paper to see if I can find a driver for me after I hit it big.-weshar75

How much are you going to pay? Would it be per trip or pay by the hour even if not driving anywhere? Would there be stand-by pay? 1.5x or 2x/hour on the weekends and holidays? benefits?

    Cruise on the Celebrity Reflection in their Reflection Suite with the glass walled shower in the bathroom. Yes that is a shower that's surrounded by glass on all sides. Fortunately the bottom glass is not transparent. :D

        In the 1980's, my brother got an old light green dodge charger. People would knock on our door several times a week with offers to buy it.

        My dad loved that car, used to shine the chrome, wax was perfect, and white walls were sparkling.

                  No Happy Meal for me.

                  They wouldn't be able to make it right.

                  I order plain double hamburgers for my dogs at the drive-up window and they almost always put everything on them.

                  "Plain"  -  "Everything"  As you can see they're very similar words, almost identical.

                  It's just too confusing for the human mind to grasp.

                    Yea, I always say "please get it right"

                    but you know it don't work.

                      I'd be afraid they'd confuse "please get it right" with "sneeze and spit on it, alright?".

                        Ha, I just realized that. Was a coincidence when I typed those cars into google images and those were the best shots. I'm a huge car guy and contrary to popular belief we're not all about Ferraris and Lambos...we're also about what makes a car really great to drive and handle well. The NSX and S2000 are two incredible examples of very well made and super great driver's cars.

                              If that was a little serious and not 100% for laughs, perhaps they took "plain" for "normal".

                               

                              If I want something special I always stress "a plain burger with NOTHING ON IT, NO KETCHUP, CHEESE, NOTHING. Thanks"
