How many times have you awakened in the morning and wondered what happened with the past six or seven decades? Or have you looked into the mirror and felt it was unfair that life passed you by without giving you a chance to pursue the career you always wanted? As much as some people look …more

Friday, May 12th, 2017   2:29 pm |  Category:   Health, Life   |  3 Comments  | Author:     bio

Observations of a Retired Person

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017   2:17 pm |  Category:   Life   |  1 Comment  | Author:     bio

Just got through driving nearly a thousand miles. It was a long journey over remote desert and isolated countryside. It’s a trip we take every spring and fall. Being a snowbird requires it.   On the road there is a lot of time to think. Long stretches of bleak landscape and miles of open road …more

Have you ever wondered what our society would be like if 1/3 of the population were over the age of 65 – many of whom will live to be 85 or older?   That will be our social reality in just one generation. And that is what the public television documentary film Coming of Age …more

About two years ago, at age 63, I realized it was time to create a meaningful retirement plan. My 30+ year, very rewarding career in sales and management was winding down. My pension was set so I was lucky that I had flexibility.   Retire? But to what? I don’t play golf, crochet, play bridge …more

It’s only been a few days, but I’ve already settled into a very comfortable routine here in the Little seaside town of Ao Nang Beach, Thailand.   Let me start by saying that everything is astonishingly affordable in the “land of smiles”.
