I would no longer be a cold Canadian. The only ice I would see is in a drink!

I'd probably want two greenhouses; one for growing tropical plants between and one without plants, or maybe just cacti that would stay between 95 and 105 F when I want to feel toasty.

I'd like to live near or take plenty of trips to places with great beaches for surfing, scuba and maybe some sports I haven't tried like hang gliding or parasailing.

I'd like to have plenty of money left over to help out in the community, my friends and family.

I would spend half of it on Wine, Women and Song.

The other half I would spend foolishly.

Depending on the amount:
Quit my job.......I say again, QUIT MY JOB.
Buy a nice motorhome and travel, travel, travel to all the places in the U.S. that I have never been and then, fly to Europe and take in all the sites.
Buy a nice 1-level house and put a Big Screen TV in it.
Spend a week (or two) in Vegas and the wife and I would PARTY, PARTY, PARTY........Shows, poker and slot machines.
Give "some" to a nice Charity.
Golly, is that all I can think of for now......yep. But, I'm sure there is more.

I would buy a motorhome and travel all the states.
While searching for that perfect home, a larger normal sized one, on ?20 acres with a large pond for some ducks.
Start a horse ranch, normal sized and mini's.
Start a no kill animal shelter.
Rescue all the animals from the kill shelters.
Buy vacation homes in Central Ca, Co, Al, Vermont, and ?
Buy a few muscle cars.
Buy a new 4runner (maybe, haven't test driven them yet), audie TT, new VW beetle, & my old 64 Vw bug back. and put airbags in all the older cars.
Have a personal delivery person that I can call and they go get that gallon of milk or dinner for me.
I liked the idea someone said about eating out for every meal except I would get tired of going out all the time so they would have to bring it to me.
Any money going to charitys would be animal & kids ones.
I would give some money to friends or family members that deserved it, but there are not many worthy enough.

Default the lottery?

I'd have fun giving the money away to total strangers on the street. Blow their minds. I'd like that.

I've always thought that too!!! (Not just anyone though...Someone who has a good vibe, or someone down & out, or someone with a kid who can't afford something, etc.)
