    1) A motor home, not just any old thing, a dulux model one, Swagman or a 'Bago'

    2) A Harly Iron 883 that goes onthe back of the motor home, they are quite cheap but i like it.

    3) Thats all for me, but i'd try and set up a homeless shelter or something like a tent city too.

    Hmm.

    This shouldn't be hard. Why is it hard?

    Scuba diving boat? Then again - why buy one when you can suddenly afford to charter one any time I like and have somebody else do all the work looking after it?

    Airplane flying lessons, and then maybe an airplane.

    Newer 4WD - maybe something a bit more fuel efficient or convert mine to run on fish and chip oil and organise (buy) all the parephenalia that goes with collecting the oil. Actually been thinking it would be cool if I could set up a service station that does the conversions and supplies the chip oil ie a repository for all fish and chip shops...

    pay off some of the family mortgages? Buy some proper council services - like someone to sweep my foot path - or replace the marble dropping queensland box tree out the front with a large something else. Get the house extended and the back yard landscaped. um. Start getting council to install the storm water tree watering systems, hmm don't need lotto/inheritance for this. Sigh.

    Pay off my siblings mortgages? Buy back my brother's pig farm, buy the pig feed farm. Make large political donation with the idea of encouraging local food security ie ban canadian pork and better food labelling so we know where our food comes from.

    Do a lot of dog training classes.

    Sponsor some scholarships to get medical staff and teachers for the bush. Sponsor birth control for the bush, and for Africa and India. The pope has a lot to answer for.

    Install (with the house extension) a solar electricity system with battery backup so I can go off grid, and solar hot water. And rain water...

    Get faster internet.

    some of these things - I can afford to do now but need to get my finger out my arse. Fund a cure for procrastination?
