    With the new advising team on board, I'd buy a hundred acre farm to build the family village.
    Then we could all work together on the charities we cherish.

    Of course we'd arm ourselves from those who want to take from us.

    A new motorcycle. I really would like a V-strom. I guess I could get the wife a car, but I'll get the V-strom first, so that I have something cool to ride to the car dealership! Yeah, she likes Mustang convertibles. With 220 million dollars (after taxes, don't forget!) I guess I'll get her one.

    1st a Private Jet to NYC and a Suite at the Waldorf. After a couple of days of thought I would talk with financial advisers and legals. Note I have not claimed the jackpot yet. Most of the advisers would be family and lifelong friends. My Brother is very capable on the financial part and a lifelong buddy is a very good family lawyer.

    My Nieces (now in Med School) student loans would disappear. That friends wife is a real estate agent I already know where I'd want to buy a home.

    That kind of money might lead to my setting up my very own charity? What it would serve would be part of that few days of thought.

    It is important to not just show up as there are many ways to offset some of the taxes that would be upfront.

    I'd buy my condo from my landlord.
    Its a large one bedroom but its big enough for me.
    I'd buy it outright, so I'd never be homeless.

    The first thing to do is change your identity and relocate to someplace where nobody knows you. Otherwise you will be continually approached by people who you used to know, all your friends and relatives, all kinds of people who want to be you friend, all kinds of people that have a wonderful opportunity to show you, all kinds of charities with sad stories, etc. etc.

    Sure but I would much prefer to do that without feeling any sense of pressure or imposed obligation.

    Food for hungry children and a home for the homeless. Maybe open a shelter.

    I'd pay off my school loans, my car loan, and then I'd finish putting myself through college for my nursing degree. Put some of the money away and invest in small business so that the money will grow. Only then would I buy a modest sized house and maybe a new jeep (and customize it).

    I would give every nickel away to charities for the poor and the marginalized.
