When I win the Lottery
I'm thinking......... There are probably a great many things worth doing were one to win the big bucks lottery. Perhaps a little discussion might be in order. That way, even if some other guy wins, maybe these ideas will provide him/her a focus for the new found wealth.

Maybe we should have a poll.

But for now, what will I do when I win the lottery? I'll buy cameras for the guys on "NCIS" that are not so darned noisy. Yeah, that's what I'll do.

RE: When I win the Lottery
I plan on having a home on the beach (Think Charlie Harper's pad on 2.5 men.)
and a home in a nice part of Las Vegas. Each home will have a shop with plenty of room, bench space and fine tools.
Each home will be either built or remodeled to my needs and likes.
A stable full of cars. Some luxury; some hot rods; some sports cars; and a eco car for putting around town.
There are some things I collect better not mentioned in a public forum -- I can expand my collection manifold.
I'll pay out of pocket for the finest healthcare. Concierge Medicine.
I'll have a chef who comes in and cooks for me.
I'll keep a lawyer on retainer -- a real pit-bull.
I'll donate to political causes that align with my personal ideology.
And, I'll give to veteran's charities -- esp: VVA and the VFW.

Now, I need to buy a ticket!

(Good thread RG -- nice to dream. And, BTW: NCIS is my favorite show. I miss Cote de Pablo.)

She's starring in a mini-series on CBS beginning March 31 called "The Dovekeepers."

Yeah, she's great. Maybe if I won the lottery I would........... Nah, Mrs. R_G would not put up with that.

RE: When I win the Lottery
I know, I know!!

When I win the lottery:

I'm gonna give Mongo a carburetor for his car, and get one for my car too. He told me awhile back that our cars don't have those. Yesterday I got stopped by a very nice young police officer who said he clocked me doing 72 in 45mph zone. I explained I couldn't have, because my car doesn't even have a carburetor. After a short discussion, he said he was going to let me go on, but he did ask Mrs. R_G to not let me out after dark anymore. So I think I need a carburetor for my car so I can go out at night. I'm also going to get that nice young police officer some sort of gadget that will let him know how fast cars are really going.

R_G:
My good-for-nothin' 39 year old stepson (who still lives at home) has a chauffeur's license.
When you win the lottery, perhaps he could be your driver.

When you move to you dream mansion with the puppies, ducks, et cetera, he could live in a little back house!

I was also going to ask for a mid 30's maid who'll wear a French maid's outfit -- but, I figured I'd get flak from the females on the board; so, I won't mention it.

And, BTW, the last carbureted car I had was a 1982 5L-HO Mustang. Since 1990, I have had 3 vehicles; and they were (are) all fuel injected.

BTW2: my first fuel injected car was a 1975 280Z. First year they went from carburetors to FI.
It was sure better than the dual SU clone side-draft, variable-venturi carburetors they used before 1975.

RE: When I win the Lottery
BIG MONEY?

1) Quit my job (very happy in it, but I'm creative, I'll think of even more pleasurable pursuits)

2) Home at the beach as well, plenty of sand, sun, but above all perfect wind (6-7 beaufort)

3) Help out family and friends

4) A cook too (one to teach me nifty stuff when I feel like cooking), cleaner, gardener (more freed up time)

5) Avail of that freed up time: hire a small army of private tutors/trainers to get me up several levels in a variety of sports, skills, knowledge.

6) Get back into the part of my day job I love the most, without all the other hassle that typically comes with it

7) Set up my own charity, and ensure funding really goes to the good causes it targets

8) Buy retired guy a present. Oh, I know, a carburetor!

9) Buy Colin Sullivan a present for having invented our favourite machine + give apnea boards a nice donation

10) Set up my own lottery

Too bad I rarely play the lottery. Don't like the odds Wink
