Well, first of all I would faint....then pay off my house....buy all my kids and grandkids a home............Go to Oakland and open a large center for kids to have a place to go to learn trades... play sports .. be mentored....HAVE ALL KINDS OF ACTIVITYS...that would interest them..and keep them out of gangs and off the streets and away from drugs....... they would be going hiking or camping.... some thing going on all the time.. I would open a large compound for young unwed Mothers....teach them how to be responsible moms and how to care for their babies...teach them a vocation ..so they could fend for them selves.......In both places , we would have lots of rescue dogs that the kids and moms would have to care for and train.....I would want it to be on going forever and have a group of good people overseeing them both ... ever so often have some one check to see that every thing is going good.....maybe be like the old TV show Millionare......go around secretly and find people really in need and surprise them with a million...

    I would first set up an office in the small town I live in and help home town families who are struggling.
    I would renovate the church and the town hall.. I would build a modern complex hidden in the woods for fire police and town offices also a youth and senior rec center.. I would then take the trip of a lifetime with my wife while our house was be revamped with the latest and greatest gadgets.. Oh there's more but If I spend to much time in my happy place, I may get lost in here

    I'd fix the dent/scratch on my car, send my cousins to a boarding school in england so they don't bother me over here, get some new cousins from Germany, and probably spend the rest on gambling or charity.

    $10mil to my dad...
    $10mil to by brother...
    $10mil to my mom...
    $15mil to my nan and grandpa...
    $20mil to my aunt (she has 4 kids, so she'd share it out)...
    $5mil to my best girl friend...

    Build a home on the beach in the carribean...
    Take a vacation with one other person to the Maldives and have the island to ourselves for three weeks...
    Buy a 1969 ZL-1 Camaro, 1968 Dodge Charger 440 R/T, 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle 454 LS6 and then see what else I fancied (they are my main ones)
    Pay for my mom's wedding...

    After that... Who knows... :)

    I'd take care of a few things personally and with some family, then I'd help some other people who aren't able to help themselves. I'd be like Santa all year long, but I wouldn't let them know who I was, it would all be anonymous and tax free. That would be so much fun to see the look on people's faces when they got what they needed but couldn't afford.

    I have a pact with my brother and sisters if any of us hit the lottery or had a big windfall the money would be distributed into equal shares. Nobody in the immediate family would be left out. After that I would use my share to convert the worthless US currency into Gold and Silver deposited outside the country. Probably Switzerland. I would leave the USA and never come back. I would travel for the rest of my life.

    I would get on a plane, travel until I found the perfect island, have my magnanimous beach house built, swim, sunbathe, drink, and play.
    Just having fun in the warm sun. I'd be having fun at night too. Uh huh!
    And I would never be freakin cold again. I strongly dislike winter!

    warm sun fun uh huh freakin cold dislike winter

    Awww hazel, you know what I would really do? Granted, my above answer is true and wish I could do it very badly.
    But, I would do what I have really wanted to for yrs. Buy an enormous piece of land, build my home there, than, I would adopt every animal no one wants in the animal shelters and give them a happy, loving home!
