      I would buy a tiny house, and pay everything off that can be paid off, and live modestly. i have the unfortunate experience of my boyfriend and i comming into a large sum of money and blowing it, so i would do things differently. Bargan shop, just enjoy life. I think id buy more experiences and go more places rather than waste it on a huge house, or expensive stuff. I probably would get a nicer car, though...my breaks need work and at this point cost more than the car is worth in my opinion!

    I love that song! Fiddler on the roof is a great movie.

    If I were rich I'd buy two houses on different sides of the world and fly between them following the good weather...  I hate the cold!

    I'd fly to Australia and live on the beach!
    What the hell, maybe I'll do it anyway! smile

    If I were a rich man...

    I'd have a really hard time breaking the news to my husband.

    However, if I could be rich without the sex change...life wouldn't change much from the goals we already have. We're working toward buying an acreage a few miles out of the town we're already living in, put a house on it and fence it in so we can have a couple horses and a few cows, a nice garden, a greenhouse, a shop for my husband, and a fish house for me. We plan to stay in that house the rest of our lives once we get there so our kids always have a place to "come home" to. The one thing that would likely change, though, is that we would have the means to travel during my husband's vacation time from work, and there is a lot of the world he really wants me to see.

    I love that song and movie, also.  smile  If I were rich I would definitely quit my job.  Travel.  Buy a house on the East coast and one on the West coast.  Open a business doing what I love.   Invest in my grandkids education. Pay off any debts that I or my children might have at the time.  Invest in my retirement.  Ok, that was fun, now back to reality. smile

    I have been rich. I can tell you what I would be doing.... exactly what I'm doing now. Money is just a commodity, never take it seriously unless you run out of it completely! lol

        Thats nice, but not very realistic. I mean, unless your writing from a damp church basement wearing the only set of alothes you have, and living on bread and water. If your on a computer right now that you own, your hardly in any place to make that statement.

        I told you. Money is a commodity, you use it to do things you want to do. Money is useful, so is decency, never trade one for the other I reckon.

    If I...were a rich man?

    I'd make a list of all the things I put off or told myself I didn't do because I just didn't have the money...then I'd go and do 'em!
