There's a lot of things I'd want to do with a huge JP:  help friends and family, fund a foundation, buy a few "toys", but the main thing is to get that place in the country I've always wanted, one with "live" water and ponds, not too close to neighbors but close enough to town to not be too inconvenient.  I found such a place, 450 acres - more than enough room to run a few head of cattle, raise some chickens and have as many dogs and cats as I wanted.  It has a fairly large house on the property, but it's too close to the farm-to-market road to suit me.  Here's the place I'd build my new home:

That's a one-acre island (left)  in the 7-acre pond in the middle of the property, one of five other spring-fed ponds.

    If that happens, Artist, you'd just have to "shake it off".

        I do not care what mom does with her half of the jackpot but I am going to eat ribeye steaks medium well.  Drink single barrel jack daniels and have visits to the nicest brothels of nevada.  I will do this until the money is used then after that I will think of something else to do like travel.-weshar75

          Winning the lottery?  You mean once, twice, three times? 50?  Wink

          Numbers are an ongoing fascination for me so I know I'll always be playing the game, the games, winning as much $$ as I can, whatever that might be and wherever that might take me. 

          I've managed to reach some goals this year on winning but I want a jackpot.  Like, you know, everyone else. Smile

          The main thing is, I don't want to be working for the man.  I've done it for too long.  It's sure worked out nice for him but not for his employees.  So financial freedom 1st.

          2nd:  a house of about 3000 sq.ft.  Maybe 4000.  It's gotta be up on a big hill, with a great view.

          3rd:  Enough free time and money to go back to college and work on the Math again, get a degree. 

          Numbers - I just never get tired of them.  Lovies

              Wait... "I will do this until the money is used then after that I will think of something else to do like travel."  If you drink single barrel JD and visit brothels until the money is used then how will you be able to travel, being you have used up all the money on whiskey and women?  Stretch

                            noise-gate, Take your trips while you are still young and healthy. A visit to machu picchu will involve a lot of hiking with gear. Plus do it in the correct season. 

                            Bon Voyage!See Ya!

                              I also play just because I love numbers and all their glorious permutations.  And, I am sure I wouldn't quit playing with the numbers after a big win.
