    Retirement - how to time it

    I plan on retiring from my full-time job at 65 (it's too stressful and I've had enough!). I'm planning to sell my house in Philadelphia and use the equity to buy a smaller, very inexpensive one in a 55-up community in southern NJ. I'm having trouble deciding how to time it - sell my house while...

    Is Your Home As Tidy As Before

    My house is tidier and cleaner than it's been in the last 20 years! Now that I work from home, I find plenty of time to clean and rearrange areas that I used to neglect. Also I went through a lot of drawers and threw away stuff I didn't need.

    What books are you into recently?

There was no meat, hardly any laundry detergent except for the organic brand that was really expensive, the freezer section was bare...

    Need a dental plan.....

    I'm in kind of a pickle because I have dental insurance through my employer that pays absolutely zero for anything beyond fillings, x-rays and cleanings. I now need a crown and a partial bridge. I thought, how much could they possibly be? I thought maybe $350 for the crown. Wrong! My dentist...

    Ladies, have you ditched your bra?

    I HATE wearing one and use any opportunity to go without. I like layering in the winter so it's harder to tell.

    Well, This Didn't Take Long - Corona Virus Vaccine

    Yes, "testing" is the key. This is an article quoting Dr. Anthony Fauci, who said on Tuesday that the vaccine would be ready for testing in a month or so, but will take at least a year or so to be ready for the general public...

    Beware of False News!

    It was a lot of fun, but the newspaper company I worked for went bankrupt and so I moved on. I still do a lot of freelance writing, though.
