Most people fantasize about living their dreams in retirement. We don’t always know exactly what those “dreams” are. We just know that our retirement will involve the pursuit of said “dreams” … in some great big, exciting, spectacular, vague kind of way.   I think one of the reasons people sometimes feel dissatisfied in retirement …more

Did you ever believe retirement could be so much fun? It is hard to believe that we will be retired 22 years this coming December. In the beginning we were a bit skeptical about how we would survive. I mean we were used to two full-time salaries and were going to drop down to one …more

How to live a simpler life? Slower? More Zen-like? In a place with good food and wine and lots of sunshine?   We are globetrotters, my man and I.

The decision for us to retire in Thailand was actually pretty easy. After living in the U.A.E and traveling extensively around the Middle East and Africa during my tenure with IBM, Thailand was a welcome respite. As I traveled through out the Middle East and Africa, I looked at each of the countries for one …more

I didn’t truly fall in love with skiing until I was … 60! This wasn’t because of a late start. I started in rope tow, lace-up boot days, when a family pass at Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood was $6.50 (eight people in my family. Thank you, Timberline.) My skills, however, plateaued at about 17. …more

When someone you love is in the hospital, don’t go to visit!   That’s right. Families should not think of themselves as visitors in the hospital room. Families—or sometimes very close friends— bring a wealth of information, background and understanding. They know their loved ones better than anyone else in the hospital.   That counts …more

One of the things I believe we must do daily, especially as we age, is to set aside a particular – “Quiet” – time for ourselves. For myself, I am referring to a time when I have anywhere from an hour to an hour and one-half of “just me” time. No disruptions, no noise, no …more
