Or are you going with the " wait and see approach" once you have the check in hand?
I will retire along with the wife, do some serious traveling from time to time to places we have not yet set foot on & get involved in charity work that involves helping the needy.
My biological odometer still has miles to go before " l sleep" so to-speak.
Of course as time progresses, we will adapt to the changing needs as necessary.
What's your approach?

    My trust with the lottery is getting smaller and smaller, so I have the wait and see approach.

        Well myself I cant say what I'll do other than go claim that money. After that I'll go real slow and deliberate with my spending

          Of all the jackpot winners they've ever shown on the news I think the most memorable one was this guy who was asked what he was going to do with that much money and he told the reporter, "My head's not on straight right now, I can't even begin to answer that. I'm lucky to get any words out."

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

          Lep

          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.

            I didn't know you were a Robert Frost fan.

            I know that one by heart.

                  I just love how they use the word "When", not "If".

                   

                  So everyone who believes they WILL win the JP someday will win. As long as I'm sure I'm going to win, I have no choice but to win.

                  Can't wait for the NEWS on T.V. when there's a sudden HUGE spike of JP winners who claim tickets. At this rate, 2014 through 2024, there will be JP winners after every drawing in every JP game.

                  The lottery commisioners will have to investigate thousands of cases to see what the heck happened. Green laugh

                  Can you imagine the Lottery Post "Home" page? The news forum will be too much for Todd to handle. lol

                  Congrats to all of you JP winners! I'm sure you just can't wait to win. I know i couldn't wait. Heck, tomorrow I'm going to write on LP that I'm definitely going to win a major JP. Why? Cause i know for a FACT that if i do write such things, they will definitely come true.Crazy

                  Dang, to think all these years I've been wracking my brain to figure out the p-3. DUH!!!!!!   All I had to do is to believe I will win a JP and it will happen. What was I thinking?

                    I walk in a positive light- you can't rain on my parade, so don't even try.
                    All of the folk who play the lottery " hope to win" otherwise why try?
                    I would rather use the word " when than if" ..since it carries a more positive outlook on things.
                    Now run along and play.

                          My plans are not carved in stone and they're more like fantasies than plans.  It really depends upon how much money I win...the more money, the bigger things I want to do.  They do get less grandiose the older I get.

                              I think my first plan is to travel to colorado and get some rocky mountain love.

                              Then i will buy a ninja suit and travel to California.

                              I will hunt down Nose-Glaze and give him the chinese water torture.
