Re: where to retire

Metropolitan area, low costs.


Ha, yes. That's about it. I kept weather, and crime rates in the mix but they were secondary. At the time I retired I also looked for low unemployment rates and diversified economy. I was worth only [more]

Good if you have that option. Grandmother had stroke out of the blue in UP Michigan, by the time we could fly there she had been designated for one of two nursing homes, the only one with a bed. Bottom line, not good, the other good one was full [more]

Sorry, no.

Come and live close to me. I would help you if I could.

Re: Longterm Care

We need to deal with this as a society with sanity and compassion. Not wish-thinking and fear.

Re: Longterm Care

I'm planning on buying some kind of robot so that I can remain in my home if I'm disabled in some way. Once I get to the point where a convalescent home is required, I'm opting for euthanasia. (WA State has assisted suicide)

Re: Begging for charity preferable to the ACA

Seems more like God is sending him a clear and irrefutable message.
