It's Worth A Fortune

Happy Tuesday Everyone,

Does anyone remember the song If I Had A Million Dollars by Barenaked Ladies?

I can't remember when or how I was first introduced to this song, but it's a fun song.

So, how about if you had a million dollars? What would you do with it?

Of course there's the responsible things to do with a million dollars--pay off debts, and such like that.

Then there's the question of whether or not you give to charities, and how much.

But, suppose you answered all those questions and you still had quite a lot left; what would you do with it?

Maybe I'd go to Disney World. I've wanted to go, and I've never been able to. Or, perhaps I'd go to Germany and England, and Belgium (three of the countries my ancestors are from). Travel around seeing family and friends I don't see often. There's all kinds of possibilities.

So, what about you? What would you do with a million dollars?

Have A Tremendous Tuesday!

Interesting,Bethany...I would pay off and fix up my house, buy my sons houses and get a new car.I have had one new car, a compact, in my life. But I could not bring myself to get something extravagantly expensive.I know how many people need cars or repairs just to get to work...i would feel guilty so, yes,I would indeed give to charity, where I knew it would go straight to help people.Also, I have a dear friend whodirects the Washington Animal Rescue League; they recue animals from natural disasters, animal horders and abuse,(she personally worked with some Michael Vick survivors).She would get a chunk, along with the local humane society spay/neuter clinics.
I would try to get some travel in, too, again, nothing overly extravagant.I have several people in the family who would LOVE to go to The Wizarding World...me, too!
I may invest a buck on a lottery ticket this week!
Have a great day.

Oh,and I would DEFINATELY give someone a job to help with the mundane around work here so I could dedicate more time to writing!

Tonette,

LOL good to "see" you. Last night I was watching "The King's Speech" and I was having a hard time coming up with a topic and this one finally came to mind. Looks like you have some great ideas on what to do with a million dollars :-)

I would love to say I would go and travel but I dont think I would be able to enjoy myself know that while I am traveling with the "cash" out there is someone who could use the money for blankes,food,water,housing or even just warm clothes so I would invest some of it for my future and donate the rest.

Have a nice day

Desere,

Very charitable answer! Investing is good idea, if you you can find something that works for you :-)
