    megamillionaire,

                            What's this? You mean you wont log on one last time and ask everybody for their address so you can share some of your winning with them?

        I wonder why when asked that question  the number one answer is I WILL DISSAPEAR>>>>>>>>why?

        I would think if you were on lp awhile and won YOU would in some way stay or at least let lp members congragulate your win.

        if I won the big one  I would definatly remember the friends I made here, and most for sure give a monetary gift..maybe YOU would not have won if not by the efforts, and info onlp

        BILL gates lives off interest and has enough to give everyone in USA at least a few thousand.

        nice

          I know you read my post in "Lottery winners giving away money" since you had a few posts in that thread. It explains my feelings if I win. I'll be to busy TCB and otherwise enjoying myself to be online. As for Bill I'm sure his wife and accountant remind him of the tax benefits a billionaire gets from giving away money a hundred lifetimes wouldn't allow him to spend.

                    Fast eddie,

                    you really are a glutton for punishment, aren't you? You have stated the obvious in your last post!

                    No, I did not fly to Europe nor did I buy into a steamship line. I am quite comfortable with where I am and what I do. This is what I have done:....

                    Setup an lifetime endowment for all of my fourteen grandchildren;

                    Put my inlaws into a new home of their choice;

                    Set my daughters up to go to the universitys of their choice for six years;

                    Set my sons up for college, trade schools or businesses of their choice;

                    Sent my youngest son (20) to France to learn culanary arts from Master chefs, his choice;

                    Given my spouse one/half of the proceeds after taxes;

                    And I went back to school to learn esoteric math for the thing that I do best,

                    Play Pick 3 and lottery!

                    What amount I won, I will NOT divulge and finally, I help people with education if and when they ask.

                    Teufellj

                      Teufellj,

                              You should be very proud of yourself, for all of your accomplishments. Your family is very blessed to have you. You have helped many in your life. I wish you the very best of the holidays and a wonderful New Year.

                                                                                        Toni

                        I agree with Toni. It is good to see someone has sat down and really thought about what they want to do with the money and how the whole family will benefit. You definitely deserve all the good fortune out there.



                        I have always said that if I win I would set up a family trust and hopefully it would look after many generations.



                        Irvin

                            he sounds pretty happy and pretty stable.

                            love to nibble those micey feet.

                              Fast eddie,

                              happiness when defined, is the "lifting up of one's soul; being light hearted; ability to walk lightly on my feet; learning that something that I have done has helped and will dventually enlighten someone; happiness is the personal gratification of fulfillment and on and on and on!" Well personally, I am not in the privy of information that a sanctified personage (God) has concerning a soul; light hearted... can't answer that one either (not a cardiologist); I do know about walking lightly on my feet---I can't! (6'3" and 289lbs., no fat just sore feet!); prior to having an accumulation of finances, I had already put my nephew thru what I thought was his academic demise at Loyola and frankly I thought that he was a real dumb ass, but guess where he is finishing his masters, having garnered a five year scholastic scholarship from MIT (I wasn't aware of his mental capacity so that kinda left me layingunder the chicken.)

                              Ah well, I have an academic capacity to ramble and so forth when really I could have been short and said, "Contented and happiness are under the same roof so why not enjoy them?"

                              Teufellj

                               So in answer to your question, Eddie, yes and no. When you reach 60 yrs. of age you tend to be happy that the rat race has actually ended and yet you are sad and feel a great load slough from your shoulders to give you a high that you could have enjoyed many years back. My first happiness and maybe the only one, was watching all of my children graduate at the top 4% in my state because all of them were home schooled the first eleven years by my wife and I followed by one year (state mandated) in high school. I am damned happy and proud of them!
