I would continue to live exactly as I do now--- give 10% to my church and/or charities, and invest every red cent of the rest of it---because while a million dollars sounds like a lot, it is not a great deal when you have to live off the interest (at today's low rates) and Social Security.

Bruce and i were delighted to see Rick's face on the news, having won. We first met him at George Bush's (not the pres) Exxon station on Route 100. He worked hard and was always nice. Congrats!
