It seems like everyone I’ve been talking to has lotto fever. 800 million dollars is nothing to sneeze at and the total amount could be even higher by the time they draw the numbers. I’ve been idly pondering exactly what I would buy with that kind of cash, and it’s safe to say that the first thing on my list is a few horse properties and more ponies. Maybe I’m insane, but with that sort of money one could easily resurrect the olden days of USET at Gladstone. Oh, the possibilities!

If you win the lottery and purchase your personal jet, you could buy something like this for the off-season. An adorable little ‘ranchette’ in Hawaii! Also, they mislabeled “tack room with a kitchen and space for a bed” as pool house for some reason.
