    For any of you Powerball players or interested in it the jackpot is over $200 million!! Hope I win. I bought 5 tickets. I told my hubby to get the guys at work to pitch in for tickets :)

    I'm going to buy some tickets too. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to help everyone you'd like to, donate to schools, etc. In my next life I want my last name to be Hilton, or Kennedy, or Trump, etc. :-) This "working poor" version of life is for the birds.

    We do a lottery at work. I would love to win! Heck, I would be happy with a small win!

    Dibs on your share! Seriously, very glad you're content with what you have.

    Let's see, the $220 million annuity has an estimated cash value of $118,800,000. Figure about half goes to taxes, so that would be $59,400,000 or just round it up to $60 million.... I could manage on that!

    There are some gorgeous houses on the market right now. I'd buy a few, along with land to start. Then start some businesses to create some jobs and get things I can't find in stores any more (100% cotton socks, clothes without stretch material in them, a chain of fast food restaurants where the food is delicious but heart and weight-healthy, affordable medical products...)

    We have a neighbor who won the power ball. They bought a new trailer house to put on their farm and had an enclosed indoor pool built off one end of it. They still work cattle and raise chickens and are more broke than they ever were before. Her ten years of payments are over now. It's obviously not all it's cracked up to be. It's still fun to dream though.
