    Now that's something Captain America would say.

    It's very medicating to me.
    I expect to earn enough doing that and teaching till I'm done. I figure as long as I can get out of bed, I'll want to tend a couple acres of ecofarm and teach.

    Wow, there are many old people here. Is this place advertised in old people magazines? I'm 40 and just finishing my phd. I like older chicks, up to about 60 we're game. The skateboardaire can have the young uns.

    If I did specialty fruits I'm sure I could earn a living from it.
    Raspberries fetch a nice price, possibly even Paw paws, the latter because they aren't as common as they once were.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    27, and, absolutely nothing, outside of social security.

    That's why I don't plan on retiring.

    I'm sorry to hear that, sir. I work at home; is that something she might be able to do as her health permits?

    Almost ditto here. Had a nice bundle saved up then got hit with a very rare congenital heart defect that requires medication implanted defibrillator and eventual LVAD and or heart transplant.

    One difference we have though is the girlfriend (who I supported) dumped me.
