I “retired” at the end of 2010. Why the quotes around “retired”? I’m not sure. I guess I’m still not comfortable with that description. Fill in the blank next to occupation on a form: Retired. I don’t know, just doesn’t sound right. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not one of those people who starts a second career after leaving their job of 30 or 40 years. When I stopped working, it was for the purpose of not working any more.
We wanted to travel…a lot. In fact, more or less travel full time. I have another blog that we use to keep track of where we’ve been. In this blog I wanted to be able to express thoughts and ideas regarding business and investing. And, it seems increasingly you can’t discuss those topics without also discussing government.
I welcome your feedback and critique.
