    After taxes (approx 30%), I would assume to have approx 7 million left. I would first tithe 10% to my church and probably give at least another 10% to charitable causes, leaving about 5 million. I would establish a trust for each of my children and grandchildren of 500k each which would leave me with 3 million. I would completely pay off all my debt and that of my sister and mother bringing me down to about 2.7 million.  I would probably buy a new house, furnishings, a motorcycle and a car for me and a new truck for my husband. I would then invest the majority of what was left (about 2 million)and hopefully live of the interest. The rest would be willed to my children.

    I would wake up and get back to work, because you're dreamin' and so am I.  But if I could manage to dream a little longer I would buy my son and daughter each a home and myself one too and then we would try think of how to hold on to the rest of the cash which by then would be about $20 or so.

    Setting side the usual half (five million) as a tax reserve, I'd take two million to invest in our homestead and various investments to secure our future as much as anything like that can be secured. 

    The remaining three million?  I'd set that aside, and IF Sarah Palin declared her candidacy for President of the United States in 2012, figure out how I was going to LEGALLY donate it to her campaign.
