    Hadn't til this one....my neighbor went to the store to get some groceries for me (she and her DH are my guardian angels!!) and I picked the numbers for a ticket for each of us with same numbers and she got one for each of us with the auto numbers. I'd do most of the things already mentioned....stay mum and get a good lawyer first (!)......trust funds for family, a foundation and set up some specific programs......animal and wildlife care.....so many human programs...and esp one to help seniors have money and help with caring for their animals so they didn't have to let them go!!! This is large for me now as I need help with Tinkerbell and my homemaker tells me tales of the problems the seniors she works for have with getting their animals care. and for me a nice 3-4 bdrm house with a screened in back porch and indoor swimming pool and a gardner to care for all the beautiful flowers I'd have!! So much fun to dream and you know, it's said that visualizing does work!! I'll let you know where I am after I get everything settled and in place!!!

    AT work we are in a pool of about 20-22 people. We all pitched in $10 and I stared buying the tickets. Will pick up the rest after work today.

    If I won, the first 10% will go directly to our church to use for whatever they want. The rest, I just can imagine what I would do with it.

    I did buy one today.

    I would help my family and set up a college fund for my grandson. I would also pay all of my bills off. The rest I would travel.

    Good luck to all
    Never put off what you can do today, because tomorrow may never come.

    We can't play because my husband works for the lottery. So I am trying not to think about it!

    Have never bought a lottery ticket in my entire life. I like the idea of having enough $$ to do whatever I want, but the odds against winning always turn me off.

    I'd like to help out the ASPCA. Maybe come tax time I will send them something, if I can.

    I won! I won!

    Okay, so $8 isn't exactly the jackpot, but still: I won! he he I'll try not to spend it all in one place.

    (Let's not discuss that I paid $15 for the tickets! LOL!)

    A win is a win in my opinion. CONGRATS!

    Of course I KNOW there are many who will not agree with me.

    Years ago, I read of a young couple who won pretty big in a lottery, and how they gave a specific amount to each family member every January first. Everyone in the family got the same amount and they all understood not to ask for any more money throughout the year. It was working well for this young couple because there were no jealousies over "who go how much money, and I only got this much", ect.
    So I made a list of family members and there are 24 people. If I gave each $10,000 a year, that's almost a quarter of a million dollars a year! So I really need to win big! No luck so far.
