Very sorry...

Glad you and your wife are okay, but very sorry for the damage. I hope the appraiser gives you a good settlement of the cost.

Legumes...

As I was reading your post, I remembered that peanuts are not truly nuts, they are a member of the legume family, along with peas and sweet potatoes. That might also explain the sweet potato chips...

That's great...

I will not be voting in person this year as my state is restricting in person voting to those with disabilities. There are drop boxes in 18 communities in my county, so it will be placed in there...

Totally agree...

I could not imagine the pressure of having to be observed virtually. There are so many potential issues that could crop up, and impossible to see what is coming sometimes. And teaching both virtually...

Retire if you can...

Definitely look at your income, but as you say, one year isn't going to make a huge difference in your pension. I went out two years before I originally planned, and it did not make a significant...

Retiring doctors...

My gynecologist and my pcp both retired. When my gynecologist retired, I went with a doctor many of my colleagues used. He was highly rated, his office was very convenient and he took my insurance....

Glad itís fixed

I will be having two visits from my cable company on Wednesday. One is for internet issues and one for my cable box. Apparently, one person cannot do both in one visit. This all started when my cable...

Local nurseries...

I like to support small businesses, so I have gone to local nurseries. If you have issues, you then could directly ask them for help/explanations.

Very true...

I see pictures on FB of people of all ages hanging out in close proximity totally unmasked. My retired teacher group has been on Zoom, but last month, any of us who wanted to meet for outdoor dining...

Frustrating...

It is frustrating that people do not take this seriously. They were just showing a college party where one of the participants had tested positive a week ago, was supposed to be quarantining, and he...

Retired 2 years early...

I did not have to make a quick decision, but I changed my original plan. I wanted to work to my full social security age of 66, but after I turned 64, I had enough. The workload and stress were...

Flew them in December...

They were coming into Newark to replace Southwest and advertised really cheap fares to introduce their routes. What we found were lots of hidden fees where they nickel and dime you to death. I did...

I hope you were not charged a fee for an inadvertent, honest mistake. Life happens.

Sometimes they archive classes

If it was a Zoom presentation, it might have been archived on the website.

Congratulations!

Sounds like you have done your homework. I retired 2 years ago at 64. I had originally thought I would work till 66, my full social security age. Things were too stressful, so I went for my pension...

These are not for me...

None of these sound appealing to me. I generally know what types of books i would like, and these are not it.

Checking you out...

In this day and age, the police can’t be too careful. He probably wanted to make sure you were not associated with that bullet, and you were who you said you were.

We were in NYC last fall, and...

Missing very little of it...

I don't miss writing the endless lesson plans and the SGOs we had to write. I also hated the observations and the documentation log we were required to do. Once those requirements came, the...

meetups

I joined a hiking group in my area through Meetup.com. I didn't go to specifically develop any new friendships, but I like the places they go and I didn't want to hike alone. There is nothing to lose...

Cell phone...

I had seen an ad in the AAA magazine (American Auto Club) and decided to purchase. It was the size of a brick, and weighed about as much, too. LOL

I never had a flip phone, but had a series of...

Be well...

One of the bigger suburban districts near me went to virtual learning at the last minute. They had a 28% increase in requests for leaves/retirements from staff who did not want to start with a hybrid...

Not easy...

No one signed on for this. At 52, you have been teaching a long time. You remember when it was a kinder, gentler world in the field of education. I feel for you...

I don't think many have...

So hard...

While virtual learning is the safest route, it definitely isn't easy. Having parental access allows for the types of problems your friend is having. Maybe she could share with her principal, and...
