First thing, figure out how tax would be on that much money. That would get set aside so it would be available to pay Uncle Sam.

First thing I would do, expand my front porch, get a ramp installed for my mother, make a path from the porch steps to the driveway, to make it easier for her to get in the car. I would then have one installed at my aunt's house so my mother and her sister could get in easily when they visit this aunt.

2nd thing-book a flight to Bogota, Colombia to visit my son, daughter-in-law, and grand-daughter.

3rd thing-a generous donation to Children's Hospital in Birmingham.

Nice thread,
Before saying my opinion I will answer your questions.

what would you do ?

I would probably be happy and then realise the state will take 50% of it. Classic :thumbsup:

will you buy the car of your dreams?

I can't, I don't drive.But maybe for my father yes.

will you get married?

Why would I? Everytime someone wins a million they get married?

will you tarvel around the world with your dreams partner?

Probably.



I would probably try everything to have a really peaceful life,with my own achievements.With or without the million I really wish that.
Isn't that what we all want?
But yes, that's what I would do :flowers: .




Elle
Can you hear it?It's all around!

Tomar ki manè acchè?
Yadi thakè, tahalè
Ki kshama kartè paro
?



If I haven't replied in 48 hours, please feel free to send me a PM.

I have been very wealthy,and also been very poor.

I have experienced both.

Being Wealthy presents problems.

You have friends that come out of the woodwork.

Now I am middle of the road and Happy.

Wealth didn't bring me the Happiness,I thought it would.

Now the Money is gone,so have my so called Friends. (Leeches)

I would organise and host a family reunion in the Bahamas bringing members of my family together that haven't met up for years as they are living in different countries. I would send my mom to spend some time with her sisters in Alberta and New York. I would employ a driver for my brother. (He had a brain tumour removed 8 years ago and has a titanium plate in his head he loved to drive before the tumour was found and his pride and joy is his classic BMW). I would give some to various charities and groups that I support. I would help my sister buy a house and if any was left I would invest that. Thanks for allowing me to dream new girl :thumbsup:

I would contribute to Bleeping Computer,

THEN I would donate to Fight Cancer, after that

Donate to fight teen obesity in the world. And to promote a healthy mind body and soul.

I will basically give the money away I think it will bring to much FAKE friends and head aches. Just as long as I can have my health and God I am cool with that.

I rather be poor and make a difference in this world then be rich. :thumbsup: :flowers:

Well not to be a downer :flowers: but
10 Mill would instantly turn into something like 5,500,000 after taxes are extracted.
If you wanted to live on the interest using tax free bonds at 5% you would have about 275,000 to play with per year. A very comfortable income for most places in the country but not enough to be decadently lavish.
If it was 100, Mill :thumbsup: now that would be different. I would really like to maintain privacy and not let the world know of my good fortune. I think I would use the circle method.
For the most inner circle, Myself, Spouse, and children I would make sure that a substantial portion was set aside so we no longer needed to worry about money. Money can’t buy happiness but the lack of it can weigh heavy on your mind.
Next ring of the Circle, parents, in-laws, very close friends would benefit generously based upon their needs and ability to handle it. Wealth can be a curse to some folks.
For the next ring of the circle it would be more need based. Maybe a collage scholarship fund that cousins or other relatives or friends could take advantage of. Maybe an extended family medical plan. I would like to help those that have been good to my family in a way that would be most appropriate.
Lastly would be Church and Charities that use the funds to help people and not simply enrich themselves at the expense of those they are suppose to be helping.
Nice to have a chance to daydream.
Best Regards
Nawtheasta.

Hmmm ... I've given this question a lot f thought. On the one hand, I could be very happy if I had 10 million dollars.

On the other hand, I might be even happier if I had 5 million dollars and was single ...





Only kidding, dear! :thumbsup:
