Writer's Block: It's payday!

What would you do if you had a million dollars?


I'd invest it in diversified dividend stocks with a high APY and put the shares on DRIP for the next twenty years.

After that, I'd retire and live off the dividends and then see about donating to some charities.

This presumes, of course, that I were to think of no one but myself. Since I do have family, I'd set up trust funds to help my youngest nieces and nephews through college, buy us a new car, and pay to have our home renovated.

Best answer I've seen to this question yet.

Bill--Yeah, I figure the best way for me to make sure I don't blow my entire million on a wild shopping spree is to just buy stocks and hold.

Besides, for me, that's as good as shopping.

How've you been? I heard you left NR.

Chantal

Yes, I left NR back at the first of this year. Interestingly, for a very Roman reason. The more I studied Romanitas, the more I came to see that the essential Roman viewpoint was knowing yourself by knowing your ancestors. The more I learned about my ancestors, the more sure I became that they would want me to be known by the name my parents gave me.

Anyhow, enough of that. I still hang out with Legio XX here in Maryland.

I'm doing pretty well. Got the latest mission launched and into orbit. It's doing very well so far. Looking for another mission now. I'll be on this one until late January, but it's good to plan for the future. I've got some nibbles that might prove out. In principle I could retire, but I don't want to have to live on $2400 a month.
