Ah, if you listen to the nay-sayers it's not worth having a punt on that, because the odds against winning are so astronomical. It even made the news here this morning. Best of luck if you buy a ticket

My queston is, "How much would you give back?" In last nights dinner discussion my wife and I both agreed that building a cultural center or a homeless shelter for animals would right up near the top. Sadly, the plan to build a true non profit heathcare center was shot down when the thought of lawsuits came up. Dogs and cats don't sue the hand that feeds them. Scholarships would be a pleanty too. Oh, and a new Herr stick and tissue Corsair kit for me.

I bought a ticket 3 days ago.
If I win, I'll spread it around indiscriminately.

A co-worker said he'd still work but keep F. Lee Bailey on retainer.

If I won it it'd make me a 1%er, so I'd have to move out of the country to keep the protesters away and keep the squatters out of my house.

Buy my son a Mini, and a real movie camera. Set up a trust fund.
Have my lawn redone.
Get some high dollar dental work.
Hire someone to bury the wire to my shop and do the insulation and electrical.
Rent a demolition hammer.
Buy a new extension ladder.
Get some insulation blown into the walls of my old house.
Get a nice riding lawn mower with one of those vacuum attachments.
Add on a second bathroom.
Install a small solar array on the roof, and run LED lighting off it.
Build a carport, maybe two carports and enclose the current carport, put a ping pong table in there.

Make small low interest loans to fledgling entrepreneurs.
Might build an artist colony, large wooded lot, gated, with large area for weekend art and craft sales, small residences for one or two people, with shop of some sort attached.
Start an online hardware and fastener business. Every obscure and oddball thing you might ever need.
Sugar daddy some homeless shelters and food banks.
Build a Putt Putt golf course and gokart track, with batting cages and arcade with pinball machines, skeeball and duckpin bowling. Food of all sorts, including an old fashioned soda fountain.
Hire a cook, maybe five nights a week, for dinner only.
Build a hydroponic greenhouse.
