A girlfriend of mine who I have known for a long long time sent me a email asking this question:
"what would you do if you won the lottery?"
She then expalined that she was to get 20 people to answer that question, but she could only choose 10 people that she actually knew and then ten strangers. She was then to read their answers and see if out of 20 people there were common threads.

So Ok I'll answer that question here. (and I told her I would)

Well first off I guess it all depends on how much I actually won, but here's what I'd start with:

1)I would pay off all my bills.
2)I would upgrade this house(2 or maybe even 3 bathrooms added as well as a couple more bedrooms.)
3) up grade our car (only 1 I like the Durango)
4)Donate more to the church
5)Donate to 3 major charities(or causes) Starting with Amercian Cancer Society Then National Cerebral Palsy Foundation and then The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation.
6) Make arraigments for grandkids and kids to have a trust fund(just so they dont have to be broke completely)
7) Then I'd like to buy a motor home to do a little traveling with Mr Gab
8) Make sure I have made some investments(gotta think of old age)
9) and last I'd like to start a motor cycle gang and buy all my blogger friends a harley and go biking dude!

GREAT list!! I don't know what I would do because I will never play it!! I think the first thing would be to go to a lawyer and get help with doing just the right thing!! I too would want to be debt free but I would want to make sure that we were taken care of for the rest of our lives and would not be a burden to anyone. Then I would help my grandchildren with trust funds like you suggested. Dream on sister!! Sandy

Great list, Gab. You are always thinking of others.

I hope you win so we can ride those Harleys together!

Wow, I am afraid I am a little selfish as charity did not come to mind right away. My thoughts were bills just like you, share with the folks and my brother and sister, save for the future, help out a few of my friends and blog friends what ever that might mean. and hopefully do a little bit of traveling. Oh did I forget either fixing up the house or moving and getting a second car that is very energy efficient so I can do this traveling.

You are one super person there Gab. So when we get the motorcycles, someone is going to have to show me how to ride.

Have a wonderful and safe Holiday Gab.
