What Parents would do with a 1.4 Billion Dollar Lottery Win

What Parents would do with a 1.4 Billion Dollar Lottery Win
Ok.. We cannot tell a lie. The urge to drop the kids off at school and make a run to the Georgia state line for a lottery ticket (or 4) has been strong the last couple of days. Someone has to win, right? Can’t win if you don’t get a ticket, right? Even if the odds are never in our favor,...
