"sign me up!!!!!!!! sunshine, good company and I know you wouldn't let us starve to death! Me, birdlady and Mr. Telegraph will also give concerts :)" - luckydog


I went out and bought tickets to tonight's Megamillions drawing, $35 million dollars over 26 years, and to tomorrow night's Powerball drawing, $40 million drawn over 30 years. That's before taxes and giving each of my ner-do-well relatives a piece of the pie. I think the IRS would take like 35% off the top if I took the cash option which would leave about $17 million dollars. The cash option is quite a bit less than the annuity. Not exactly in the same league as Bill Gates unfortunately.

Sigh! I keep trying. I have to keep telling myself, "you can't take it with you."
