  1. I haven't checked my numbers, but it is nice to know that the pot is being split at least three ways.

  2. Bought a ticket (10 to be exact) for the first time in YEARS. We figured it was $20, the cost almost of a movie, and we had fun trying to figure out what we would do with the money; so it was a bit of entertainment. I heard too that there were at least 3 winning numbers; good to see the pot split up a bit.

    I think I would take my time to think about what I would want to do with the money. Most people say they would not go to work the next day if they won; I definitely would go; wouldn't want to draw attention to me until I was ready to come public and do so (we live in a state where they give you 90 days to do so). I know I would definitely give more away than I kept :)

    1. I do agree that it is entertainment! And how much fun if you had just won a little even! I had a sister-in-law who won a jackpot!!

  3. We always buy a ticket. I figured if we won we would form a lottery club with my brothers and my husbands sisters and share in the winnings! That is just way too much money for one person! At least 3 winning tickets were sold though so that's good!

  5. Between my husband and me we bought about 12 overall - maybe more. We won a whopping $4.00 last night - woot! LOL! Hey, it is better than nothing... I traded it in today for some mega millions...
    If I did win big - I'd give my sister and niece some money so they could quit working - help out my parents with various things - give some to my other two siblings and some to charities - and oh, I don't know... so many things! It is fun to dream...

    1. LOL $4. Better than nothing I guess! Yes, I have people I would want to help too.

  6. I'm such a loser! Only yesterday morning, I got to imagining what I'd do with that fortune ... then felt so overwhelmed and frankly, scared. "It's too much!"

    I have to suppose, the Universe heard my thoughts and said, "Well then, we'll just check this one off the list!"

    1. I told Darian and Harley that I think it would be hard to spend that much money. They thought I was crazy. I don't think I would even buy a new house. Too stressful! Yep, I understand completely

  7. Chino Hills is about an hour away, in the dreaded 909. (Yes, we have area code snobbery in California.)

    I did buy a ticket. Kind of glad I didn't win. The spotlight on the winner has to be blinding.

    1. I totally agree with you about the attention. I think I would remain anonymous! But the change in life style would probably give me away

  8. I bought tickets but of course, didn't win. Ah, but I have a plan for next time! If I won, the first thing I'd do is hire the people who got laid off at work, and set to getting some self-sustaining animal rescues going, and some free and reduced-price clinics for the poor started up.

    1. Those are some very admirable ways to spend your money!

  9. There was a big rollover here on the UK lottery last week so I did buy a couple of tickets but no luck :( I'm not sure I'd want to win a huge amount - it would be so life changing - but a reasonable amount just to set us and family members up. Any excess I'd look to sharing with family/donating to good causes or maybe setting up a business venture that would help those in need.

I love to hear what you might think. Leave me a comment. I guarantee though that I will delete your comment if you are just here to cause trouble. So tread lightly!
