Oh, this is how I lull myself to sleep some nights--what would I do if I won the powerball lottery!! I would restore this house--it was built in 1872 and remodeled in the 60's--I would pull down all the paneling and the horrible dropped ceiling, rewire everything so I have enough outlets!! I'd hire someone to do some heavy landscaping to fix the drainage troubles, and I would build a pool house, so I could swim all winter. Put some fences up so I can let the dogs run without worrying. And maybe buy out the neighbors so I could have the whole place to myself. :)

(I do buy a powerball ticket when I remember--somebody has to win!)

A 100 Million? Set up education trusts for the grandkids. Purchase the land and build a Hospice House, set up with state of the art medical equipment, set up a trust to run the hospice and spend my time working with the dying. It's where my true heart is.

The first thing I would do is move out of this "one bedroom mansion on the hill", into a larger rental until I figured out what to do next.
