Five Things I’d Buy with a Million Dollars
By Renee Scattergood
Oddly in this day and age, a million dollars isn’t really considered a lot of money. Unless you’re careful, it really wouldn’t go a long way, and unless you’re earning that much consistently, it can run out fast. It is, however, a lot more than I have right now, and I can think of a lot of things I’d want to buy. Here are the top five:
1) A house – I am so tired of renting. I’d love to own my own home for once. Of course, I wouldn’t go crazy and buy something too expensive. We’d have to think about property rates and insurance, as well. Of course with that much money, I could pay several years in advanced. Maybe a decent sized three or four bedroom home with a yard large enough for a pool and greenhouse. I’d love to be able to grow my own herbs, fruits and veggies.
2) A car – We don’t have one at the moment, and I’ll tell you. It’s hard. Our lives would become a lot simpler with a car. I really want a jeep! And I could pay the registration and insurance several years in advanced on that too, so we wouldn’t have to worry about it for a while.
3) Airline tickets – I haven’t had a chance to visit family and friends in America since I moved to Australia. None of them have even met my daughter and she’s nearly ten. It would be nice to take a trip to see them all. Then we can go to Disney World! WOO HOO!
4) Books – I’d buy more books than I could possible read in a year. That would keep me busy for a while! 😀
5) An Indoor Rock Climbing Gym – This is one of the things my husband has always wanted to do, and they don’t have one in the area where we live. It’s a huge tourist area with very little in the way of recreational activities, so it would do well. And at least it would provide us with a continuous income over the years.
What would you buy with a million dollars?

Shadow Stalker: Broken (Episode 8) Description
Auren finds a way to escape the pain of her torture, but when Makari realizes it’s preventing him from “cleansing” her, he finds ways of randomizing the pain to keep her present. Still, she does not succumb to the torment.
When Makari can’t get through to her, he decides Drevin, the emperor of the Galvadi, is right. Auren is the delohi-saqu. Now Makari is no longer concerned with cleansing her because the delohi-saqu cannot be cleansed. He resorts to more sadistic methods to extract information about the Coalition. If Auren can’t resist, her friends and hundreds of innocent people will die.
