You'll all be devastated to hear that I didn't win all those millions last night - or maybe thrilled to know that I won't be going to visit you in my private jet LOL

But - if I win on Friday - an estimated 150 million Euros - I will get that jet!!!!!!!

Then I think I'll buy iWin - have new items every week - esp for my friend l4dyh4wk - pay our volunteer moderators a huge salary (well deserved) - and - wait for it - design a new & bigger hotel for an iWin "Life AFTER the Penthouse!"

Aw shucks marilou92! So nice of you to think about us in your (possible) good fortune! Just knowing you would include us is very rewarding in itself! Thanks...

The new Hotel idea is pretty cool too... Dee, volunteer moderator

Quick... someone figure out a way to rig the drawing so marilou92 can win!!!
Her plans to spread the joy around are so noble, we must assist in attaining her goal.
Salaries for moderators, new items every week, and a new hotel beyond the penthouse. It must happen, folks.
We'll make it happen marilou. You just play along and smile innocently when you collect those millions!!! LOL

Emcall - think you'll have to tell me the numbers LOL
I didn't win
But no one else did either -
Have to wait til Tuesday - it's expected to be 175 million Euros - THEN I'll buy iwin & put my plans into action.
BTW (off topic?!) my #24 is to wish you all Happy Independence Day.

I would give $200,000 to my mom who has always been there for me and is very hard working. I'd spoil myself too and maybe buy a cool sports car and go on a shopping spree (maybe around $100,000). I'd put $200,000 into savings. I'd put $100,000 into re-decorating our house. The last $400,000, I would open a non-profit shelter for cats and dogs that would otherwise be euthanized since I'm the biggest animal lover. Oh yeah, I would also buy a horse.

First I would pay off my debts and my children's. Then I would have a billboard put up directly across from my ex's house with my picture that says, "I've got more money than I know what to do with and you can't touch it."

Too funny snowbunny!! I'm sure the ex would really enjoy that.
marilou92.... I'm lousy at picking numbers. Anyone here good at gambling???

On Topic..... sometimes I feel like the bills wouldn't even be covered by the lottery. A million dollars can be eaten up quickly by medical bills. So I guess I would pay the tax on the winnings, pay off all my medical bills, and if any left over, would pay off our mortgage.

emcall It would really ***edited for language*** him off and that in itself would be worth more to me than the millions. Ok, maybe not, but it sure would come close!

Sorry about that. I didn't realize you couldn't use that word. How about it would tick him off. I hope that's ok.

Now, if I could live anywhere I would want mountains and ocean in the same location. If I could not have the ocean a mountain lake would work.


For me the Erin dream began with John Ford's "THE QUIET MAN". It's 1 of those movies I watch everytime just to be in that place.
But if I suddenly received millions I'd probably have several homes here in the US & be a seasonal resident~New motorcycles would be an absolute, well, trykes now & one of those motorhomes that cost a million just by themselves. Ooh, & maybe I'd follow the NASCAR circuit for awhile. But travel would be the most important thing to see how & where others live. Fell in love with that when we were riding m/c back & forth across the country & a single trip to Paris 20+ yrs ago.

@Susweka, don't forget $11.98 for a big package of ear plugs for those NASCAR races. Or more for a noise-cancelling headset, maybe one that brings you the commentary or radio chatter.

@MsFinelam: If I had more time, I'd calculate what your dreams would cost. I'm betting it's lots more than "millions"!

I like George51's answer, especially the part where he thinks about his great nieces and nephews and their future. You'd be "rich uncle George!" But I'll bet they already love you for more than your (imaginary?) money.

I would pay off all of the debt for my family and friends. Then, I would fund their college education. Then I would set up a foundation to grant them money for their businesses. Then I would find an island in the Caribbean for me to live on. Then I would go to the beach every day to have a sea soak and to hear the sounds of the waves as they come on shore. That'll just about do it for me.

Well since I am retired and don't have any real bills to pay off I guess I would get my drivers license back ( let it expire due to bad health problems but am now eligible to drive again) and buy a reasonably reliable car so I could travel a little. I LOVE to drive. There are a number of places right here in the good ol' USA I want to see before I die and time is getting short. I could stretch a million dollars a long way " being like Jack Courac and living life on the road.

I would buy all the land around me and divide it up between my kids then I would move far far away on a big mountain or huge plains area and build me a big house and pool. then I would build a huge fence all around it so the kids could only get in when I wanted them to. lol No really I would buy an enoumouse amount of land and every vacant housse I could find fix them up and let the homeless live in them till they could get on there feet and get them a home of there own. I think its stupid to let an empty house sit there when there are people need one and cant get jobs because they have no address so they cant get an address cause they have no job to get money to get the address.

If I suddenly won a Million dollars in today's market...I would pay the taxes owed on the money, pay my 10 percent to the church, put some money in a trust for my son, neices and nephew, and then buy a nice home, a car, since I do not have one, and put some in the bank for retirement, and pay off bills of family memmbers. I grew up believing that family is all you have so making sure that they are healthy, happy, and secure is a wish all the time no matter that my family has a lot. We all never know what life will bring fromone day to the next, so knowing they are all secure as financially as is possible would be good. If I still have any money left, I would start giving it away to others.

U are relly sweet & smart except for stopping at 1 million. The question was if u won millonS of dollars & u should take that "S". If u won 1 million, u would be in a hig tax brackett and so 50% of it is gone in taxes right awy. Now u have $500k. U have a big heart so 10% tithe is $100k so now u have $400k. If ur sone is young, even a small account will grow, so say u start Coverdell edicatiom funds @ $2000 (the max). Start a family trust with $100k. now u have $294k. Put $100k toward retirement - a good number if ur 40, cushy if ur 30, scanty if ur 50. Hon, let ur family members pau their own bills. U have less than $200k left to buy a car & a house. I found a news story that says the median price of a house is $189k so u might sqeek it out - but go for the "S" and get a little breathing room. (I meant it when I said u were sweet & smart, u just need more $$$)
