    I had a 20 minute wait to vote at my local polling place. Not too bad considering I live in a town of 3500 people.

    My town is about the same size, Geo. I don't expect to wait long.

    Very strange breakfast today..... I was using mushrooms before they went bad....

    3 cups cooked mushrooms
    1 cup cooked onions
    2 TBS Olive oil
    salt and pepper

    Now in the old days, I would have added 4 - 5 slices of cheese, put it on a roll, and added ketchup and mayo. Like a Philly cheesesteak minus the steak.

    So, my speakers for my home theater finally arrived and I set them up right away. I spent 21 years working in TV, and a short time in radio.... Music is in my soul, tho I can't play an instrument. Anyway, once I set it up, and since I am home alone most days, I had a 30 minute dance session.... no, I didn't let anybody see it, LOL..... That would be scary. And it kicked my butt to dance for 30 minutes.... Anyway, here is what I was listening to while dancing or just listening, in no order:

    1. Big Bad Voodoo Daddy - Jump With My Baby

    2. Brian Setzer - Jump Jive & Wail

    3. Kid Rock - Bawaitadawba

    4. Prince - Rock & Roll Affair

    5. Elvis Presley - Burning Love

    6. Queen - Fat Bottom Girls

    7. AC / DC - You Shook Me All Night Long and Whole Lotta Rosie

    8. Led Zeppelin - Kasmir & The Immigrant Song

    9. Royal Crown Revue - Beyond The Sea

    10. Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here and Time

    11. The Time - The Walk

    12. Sugar Hill Gang - Apache

    13 Sinead O'Connor - Nothing Compares 2 U

    14. The Platters - With This Ring

    15. A Motown Medley

    16. KC & The Sunshine Band - Boogie Shoes

    and a few more that I can't remember.

    Damn good play list. My mom was actually offended by the lyrics to Fat Bottom Girls when she finally figured out what the song was about. I laughed.

    And I downloaded the newest live set by Kid Creole & The Coconuts.... I am SO HAPPY I found it on amazon. I had almost forgotten about them. I'm listening now as I type.

    Today - just about 20 minutes ago, actually - I was asked if I won the lottery, would I still work?

    You know, that would all depend on how much I won.... If I won $500,000 after taxes, I would not work. Between current savings, and the $500K, we could easily retire. ( I worked 19 years at the same company and always contributed the max to my 401K. And my wife has spent the last 15 years contributing the max to her 401K, but less than max before 15 years ago ).... Plus we invested in other things along the way, so we're good.

    If I won $250K, I would think about it.

    If I won $100K, I would definitely work again, and start my business that I really want to do.

    I don't have gigantic dreams, but modest ones. All I really want out of life is:

    1. A happy family life
    2. Good health
    3. Enough money in the bank to be able to retire when I want to retire, and still be able to afford a very nice yearly vacation, buy my "toys", and really not have to worry about money.

    Now, if I were to win some "serious" money, not only would I retire, but I would buy a place away from people, where I could enjoy the solitude, and a worry free lifestyle... but still nothing crazy. I don't care a whit about fancy cars, fancy clothes, jewelry..... I would however, buy an antique truck and have it fixed up. I would love to have an in ground pool that I could use all year long, but have someone else take care of it. And I would love a giant aquarium, that I would also have someone else take care of it. Oh, and I have 2 charities I would give a donation to.

    That's about it. How about you?

    I made a salad dressing for tonight..... Cilantro - Lime Dressing

    I don't measure, but here is a rough "guesstimate" ....

    1 TBS FRESH lime juice
    1 teaspoon sea salt
    1 teaspoon of black pepper
    1 tiny chunk of fresh ginger.... like 1/2 the size if your pinky finger's smallest part... I don't even take the skin off
    1 clove of garlic
    1 healthy sized handful of Cilantro
    1 TBS of balsamic vinegar
    3 TBS honey
    1 hot pepper, minus the seeds and ribs... today I used jalapeno, but I have used habaneros before

    OK, put that all in a food processor, and zap it til smooth...... about 30 - 45 seconds

    After that, SLOWLY drizzle in about 1/2 cup of olive oil....... let all the flavors marry in the fridge for at least a few hours, and then enjoy!

I'm 32 and have NOTHING saved for retirement yet. Don't chastize me... I follow the Dave Ramsey plan... We'll have our debts paid off in less than 5 years and I can sock everything into retirement at that point... plenty of life left to work before I retire...

    If I won a million dollars, DH and I could both quit our jobs for 10 years and not have to worry about money, while continuing to live our same lifestyle...

    However, I would probably quit my job, find a job I REALLY like (like working the garden center at a Menards or Home Depot or something). I would pay off all my debts, invest in my kids' college education and just live my life...

    If I won one of those mega jackpots, I would pay off my house. Then I would buy a new car... nothing fancy... modest, like a Ford Explorer or Ford Edge or something... then I'd bulldoze and rebuild my house... eh, maybe not... remorse would probably set it and I'd end up just remodeling it... I mean, come on... my kids grew up there... I can't bulldoze it!! so let's say I'd remodel my house. I'd pay off my MIL's and Dad's house... I'd pay off all my debts. I'd quit my job and turn my backyard into a garden and live off the land.

    DH says screw all that... we'd sell and buy an acreage... lol
