I'd pay off all my bills first. Then I'd take the family on an extended vacation somewhere beautiful and warm. Then I'd buy myself and hubby a new car. Last I would find a nice home for us to live in and furnish it nicely.

well, the first thing I would do is dump these pita buyers, and relist my house for a dollar. Then I would take care of my family and friends, and high tail it to NC!

I'd buy an oceanfront condo on each coast and lots of land somewhere to have horses to truly ride.

I'd build doggie rescue facilities where they could play and be taken care of until they get adopted or they would stay with me forever.

I'd build a farm animal rescue facility and take them in too.

And I'd make sure that what ever I bought was big enough for my family and best friends to live there too. And we'd all travel together.

I would probably win and not even know, because I don't know how the lottery works. But wouldn't it be fun to get to help people who need help. I have a friend whose church gave its church members money one Sunday morning instead of taking up an offering. There was one rule: They had to give it to someone else of their choice and tell the person they gave it to that God loves them. She told me how much fun she had doing that.

I'd make sure my family was taken care of first--college for my grandbabies and nice homes for my children closer to where I live now. Then a large portion would be donated for the care of animals. Helping animals is a big part of my life and to be able to do more is probably one of my biggest dreams.

My opinion of politicians? Bottom of the barrel right under the slugs.

If I won the lottery and had unlimited funds, well of course the first thing you do is take care your family, all of my grandchildren are almost adults now, but I would set up a fund that would take care of their college education should they decided to do that. I would set up trust funds for them and my children and then I would want to set up some sort of a foundation that would take care of the children of the homeless, be able to provide them with clothing, food and health care, and education, after all this is our future and I believe we should do what we can to help the future.
