Rosa Dominguez Won California Lottery Twice In One Week
July 12, 2017 2:44am CST
In California, 19-year-old Rosa Dominguez won $555,555 from a $5 Power 5’s ticket she bought at a gas station in San Luis Obispo County, and $100,000 from a $5 Lucky Fortune ticket she bought at another gas station in Monterey County, just days apart. She told the California State Lottery that she will go shopping and buy a new car. (link to Winner Stories at calottery.com attached) If I put our household in her very fortunate situation, hmm, we don't need a vehicle, but if we did, my suggestion would be a van, so it has enough space for many people plus our stuff, like 3 rows of seats with storage at the back. And, well, we're also big people, so it would be more comfortable than a car. I would also suggest just second-hand van. It doesn't have to be brand new or top-of-the-line. The bulk of the money will go to more urgent and long-term matters, like helping family members. Would you buy new cars if you won the lottery? Would it be your dream car or something more practical, or even something you can make money from?

No, I would not allow my husband to buy a new car, our car is 6 months old and it's perfect. I would buy nothing at all, I think I would make a pension plan with a Swiss insurance to receive a fixed amount every month, so I am sure we do not waste the money and we have a comfortable pension until the end of our days.

Live isn't just, is it? You can read about this already in the Bible. It's called 'Matthew effect'. Luke 19:26, "For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from him." A 'translation' for simple folk is, "The devil always sh its on the biggest heap."

No, I wouldn't buy a new car. Ours is older but still running well. I would pay off our mortgage so I wouldn't have to worry about paying that monthly bill and then give some to my sons. I would also give some to my church. I'm a firm believer in sharing my blessings.

@JudyEv i was thinking maybe it was her age (19) and maybe she's gainfully employed and have no housing problems, but here, the first thought would be how to help family. a 4 wheel drive would be perfect for you and vince and you passion for travel and photography. do you mean remote parts of perth or including other states?
