Nerd from Missouri wins 96.5 Million USD
John and Susan Brands, both 49, of St. Charles, were identified Friday by the Missouri Lottery as the winners of the jackpot in the March 22 drawing.
John Brands has quit his job the day he claimed the winning lottery ticket. John is a civil engineer. His wife, a native of Wichita, Kan said she's looking forward to traveling, including a trip to New Zealand. Why New Zealand she was asked? Well...we're Nerds she said, and I really want to see where they filmed the movie "Lord of the Rings" We certainly aren't going to argue with that! What would you do if you won the Powerball lottery?
Apart from travelling, John said he finally wants to take some Bass guitar lessons. His wife Susan wants to take some culinary courses at some school and they both want to learn some languages other than English.
What a lovely couple. We will try to follow up on them and see if the "Nerds" from Missouri accomplish their dreams. Lord of the Rings? We say lords of 96.5 million dollars. All the best to the Brands family to all our beloved players at Icelotto.com
