You've never set foot in California?

l stand corrected. I looked up my past phone logs and it was area code 210. I humbly ask for your forgiveness on bended knee. Last thing l need is to upset the King Of the Earth. It's downright comforting to know that the King pays attention to little things,* cough, cough, like my post .You are wise & Powerful.

    Like most, the first thing I do when I find out I won is to quit my job.

    Then I would buy a new vehicle (not sure what yet, but it would have to be one that is brand new.)

    Next, there are a lot of nexts.

    1. New wardrobe (tailor made mostly, not store bought),
    2. A new house with unlisted number (I live in an apartment now), with a wine cellar
    3. New furnishings (including wide screen TV with super deluxe cable package and a nice big freezer to hold only the best of food items),
    4. A nice long vacation (not sure where but haven't been on one in a while)
    5. I like jewellery (but had to sell all of mine a few years ago to pay bills). So new rings, a nice gold bracelet and a gold necklace with a pendant
    6. Whatever I want...within reason since now I can afford to buy it!

                    Easy list, boss would get a "I quit" text. I would get a new number but keep old one for solicitor, reporter bait. Travel a few months  for for the media to die down. Do the recommended hiring estate/tax attorney, CFP, CPA. before I left.

                      Great Mike. Your response got me thinking about an app my wife has on her phone, it's called " WhitePages ID." She has been singing it's praises for quite some time now & l have been ignoring her on that front until your suggestion right now has me leaning towards installing it on my phone.  Us men hate getting directions until " the rubber band breaks"..so to speak. You have my thanks. 

                      I have an app like that on my phone. It's called "HIYA"

                      It identifies callers that I don't have stored in my phone and it is programmed to pick-up and disconnect callers that are suspected "SPAM"

                      I hate the calls that tell me I won a cruise or want to lower my credit card rates.

                        I would quit the new job I'm going to start and focus on web stuff and rentals.

                          They would miss you at this new job seeing that they did not get a chance to know you.

                          Rentals?- like what, tuxedos?

                              everyone on this post seems to have thought it through. great things to do list. some very good points. I commend you all.

                              for me though, its not the changes that I expect to make...its the unknown changes that come along with a life altering event.

                              I believe my circumstances, persona,ideals, thought process, sense of self, my reality even my life would change. I don't know how much or in what ways. One thing is for sure I would love to find out.
