What would you buy if you won the lottery?

A villa in Orlando would be at the top of the list!

I'm right there with you :yes: If we won enough, we'd buy a few villas so that we could start a business and actually live in Florida. We would be gone from the UK in a heartbeat.
I'd end up with some sort of animal rescue sancturay!

I have a lotter ticket for tonight. Not holding my breath, though.

I tend to view my lottery ticket purchases as a contribution to the General Fund of the State of Arizona! :lol:

I think I'd;

Buy Jade and Niamh a house
Buy my Mum and Dad's house for them
Put Money away for Niamh's university fund
BIG Family holiday to Florida
and then Fund a research trip to the Galapagos to help "Lonesome George" find a mate :yes:

I still prefer the Nikon "look" but my 5dII does have the edge for resolution there's no doubt and it's ALMOST as good at high iso (flash system not as good still, AF poorer though liveable with)

All in all, it's good for sure

Hmmmm, my first thought is always, pay off the bills. So, I'd do that.

Buy a cottage in Ireland on the west coast. The more rocky and barren the area, the better. :yes: (No surprise there, eh)?

That would be after setting up a foundation in the name of four family members who are now gone. The foundation would be for several specific "helping" reasons, but I'd have to work on the definition of those first.

Bring my parents to Florida where they could live with the help they need.

Buy Herself that ragtop she's always wanted.

Travel. Travel some more. Travel and visit Michelin star restaurants. Oh, and we'd travel. :yes:

Depends if it was more than 10 - although even one of those every once in a while would be nice.

I would like enough so I didn't have to work again - wouldn't want a mansion - just enough to buy a house in the country and have holidays

My dad (who is 78) rang me really late Sunday evening to let me know that he had just checked his numbers and won the lottery - he was so excited it took me ages to get out of him how much he had won................. 96. Well, every little helps, bless you dad, I know you're feeling great :hug2:But really, 11pm on a Sunday evening was a little late for that kind of news :yes:
