GUEST,Lin BS: Power Ball Over 1 Billion Dollars (24) BS: POWERBALL OVER 1 BILLION DOLLARS 13 Jan 16


IT'S UNBELIEVABLE - THE LARGEST JACKPOT IN LOTTERY HISTORY in the world!

I've bought my tickets for tomorrow's (Wednesday) nights drawing for the largest jackpot ever in the world!

Here in California, there are some stores that have had a history of a lot of big Lotto winners, so of course people are gravitating to those particular stores (many are liquor stores) and long, long lines just to buy the Powerball tickets ($2.00 a ticket.) I don't live near the stores with past big winners so just bought them near home - and no lines.   

Since they don't have Powerball in Nevada, a lot of people living there are driving over the border into California to buy tickets and wait 2 hours to buy a ticket once they get to the store. People in Canada also driving over the border to buy tickets in USA.

WHAT TO DO WITH A BILLION DOLLARS?????/WOW!

Well...I would move to Carmel, California and buy a nice little home there and after that I don't know.
I might fly first class to London with accommodations that have a bed for long flights from L.A. to London. No more coach seats for me.
I have always only flown coach on airlines - and would love the luxury of flying first class. Would visit some friends in London and then fly to Switzerland to see a friend who lives there, one in Dublin too.
I would go to a lot of folk clubs and hope Donovan was playing somewhere to buy the best seats in the concert hall.

I've never even flown in business class before - just cramped in with a lot of people in coach section. Long waits for the restroom in coach too.

Would probably give to certain charities in particular that would help cats and dogs. (My passion)

Only family is one brother - so I would help him too.

Ah, how wonderful to dream. I only have bought three tickets so far.

Of course, Uncle Sam would get a huge chunk.

Wednesday night is the drawing. Can't wait to see if I win and then go into hiding. :-)))

What would you do? Anyone else bought your Powerball tickets yet?
