    If you could do anything you wanted and money was no object what is it you would like to do?

    I would take in and care for the unwanted, abandoned, neglected & abused fur babies.

    First I would help my kids then others kids to get out of abuse and neglect situations then add on to my house for a sewing room and living room so I could use the present living room for a dining room to fit eveyone.

    I'm ashamed (but big enough) to admit I am no-where near as philanthropic as most of you.

    I would build my dream house on as many country acres I could buy and it would include a kennel, stable and greenhouse.

    And after I was comfortably settled in, THEN I would start giving lots of money away.

    I would set up restaurants for seniors on ss retirement. So many seniors do not get enough food to eat everyday due to rising economy. It's hard to see our elderly not even able to buy a Mcdonalds hamburger, they resort to dumpster diving. They would get free or low cost healthy meals everyday.

    There is some beautiful farm land close to me that is up for sale and it saddens me every time I drive by because I know a developer is going to come in and put houses there. I actually have thought about this question as I drive by, I would buy it and make it into a huge park for everyone to enjoy with rose gardens, playing fields, walking trails, and other creative ways everyone can enjoy this beautiful land.

    I would open a $5 a yard quilt shop and have all kinds of rooms where people could come and sit and work. I would have tables for cutting and people who didn't have room at home could come there and use the facilities. I would underwrite the cost where fabric cost no more than $5. Then I would drive my red jaguar home at night.

    I, too, would help animals.

    But, i would set up a scholarship fund for B students. You know the ones who do fine, but just didn't reach that A level. It seems to me that very good and very bad students get attention, but the wonderful, productive ones in the middle have to really struggle for any assistance.

    I would get some property and build many cottages and a community building. These would be for ALL types of crafters and we would have a "shop" to see our wares. We would have some planned events to be together but have our own "home" to go to. A big Craft area.
