    After family and charity, how would you change your lifestyle? For me, I would still live modestly but I would love a small Arts & Crafts or Victorian house with beautiful woodwork. I would also love a greenhouse--Victorian--but I bet I would not spend the bucks. A good quality stainless steel set of pots/pans and chef-grade knives would pretty much round out my "wants" since clothes, jewelry, sport cars, etc. don't interest me. I would still live in the country with a garden, chickens, Nubian goat and a quilting room! How would you live differently?

    I would build a log cabin and a new barn. Plus I would buy a new dodge ram with all the bells and wistles. THen invest the rest for our future and live off of the interest. I'm not a bid spender but I would also have to buy animals to fill the barn! I would also see if the neighbors would sell me the feild next to the house? I will never win a million cause I don't enter any lotteries or contest. [​IMG]

    I hope I wouldn't change too much. One thing I would do for darn sure is to hire someone to do all the heavy work around here.
    Other than that, I would get more animals and plant a bigger garden.

    I'd get some professional landscaping and outdoor lighting help and go visit some gameparks in Africa.

    Definitely... after family and charity... buy a better piece of property, solar and wind power, well, wonderful barn, top-notch chicken coops and goat pens, piano, decent vehicle(s), adopt a bunch of kids, couple of greenhouses, excellent raised beds, nut/fruit trees and bushes, and lots more!

    $1 million?

    Got my eye on a piece of commercial property for a half million that I would get an build a internet cafe/game room/teen center.

    If I had anything left I would sink it in to my farm.

    I would pay my bills, donate to charity, buy a plot of land and a small house for my sister, put improvements in my property such as fencing and a new barn, and open a nice little farm theme bed and breakfast

    Okay, Rebelcowboysnb, just for you make it $2M--you're an entrepreneur and would make jobs.
