Boss, spouse and I visited Florida in 2014 specifically to see Nalcrest. He isn't ready to wind down, and he'll just visit me if I spend the 'big bucks" and rent there just a month some winter. That is if one is available. Maybe 2020.

Dazed, tranquility is the perfect description.

RIKSNY, two hours of the 1997 Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance is going over and over tonight on PBS. We saw him in person dance briefly a few years back in a show called "Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games" Flatley produces (retired from dancing). My husband took me and he was so impressed with Flatley's speed, that he looked him up and at one point Flatley had the world record for how fast his footwork was. I feel bad, because in San Diego we saw this show maybe in 1999, but I can't remember Flatley specifically and that BUGS me.

/m29181 Cali, thank you, I found it and replied. The odd thing about here is that people don't talk about the Post Office. There are a few grumblers, they probably grumbled for 30 years, and nobody listens to them. I am becoming much more relaxed being here. Retirement is an adjustment for anyone, but moving to this tranquility has been a major adjustment for me.

Cali: I can see why it might appear that way. D & C has moved to Nalcrest, had some success in his endeavors (God knows, I need to lose weight!), so that's Front & Center in his life. Besides, many here (myself included) have been asking about Nalcrest..."What's it like?" etc.

/M29179 Cali, I don't know where it is. I communicate about other things - see all my last posts.

Dazed, I know your desire is to only communicate about Nalcrest on here, but 5 days ago someone directed a post to you elsewhere. Maybe, maybe not you'll want to respond.

/m29176 Joe, just something for you to consider.

/m29177 RC, I have been walking 2.5 miles a day. Practiced a little softball today and totally different muscles, and I am beat.

/m29175 Better, stronger, faster next year. If you're not growing, you're decaying. I will always remember that motto from the book. Just got back from a leg-Ab workout. Core strengthening is my favorite. It will serve you very well, indeed.

/m29173 better, I walk 2.5 miles every morning. I used to do 5 miles, but that takes too long. As I lose my final weight I will probably kick the miles back up and increase my speed to 4 mph. I will also add some other forms of exercise like biking, Yoga and strength training. I have never been able to run, even when I was young, and at 71 I don't want to mess with my knees. I made it through carrying mail without any real injuries or lasting problems.

192.2 lbs - I have lost 40 lbs since I retired in April, and I really started trying to lose June 1. 27.2 lbs. away from my goal of 165. Not getting any younger. Low Carb!! This is what counts - not Politics.

/m26171 Joe, I did call SS during the process, but only because I am involved in WEP. I was going to wait until 70 to sign up and the great guy showed me how signing up at 69 was much to my benefit and because of WEP it would take me 15 years to gain back what I would have lost by waiting until 70. I received a back payment from Oct. until April. I assume you are not 70, but do you fully understand the benefits of not claiming at 66? If you have questions about that I would call SS to become fully informed. The online sign up process is simple, just be sure you fully understand everything.

Joe: I also would recommend you sign up Online. If you go to the SS office in person, you could easily wait a few hours, waiting for your "Number" to be called :P

It is funny, as much as I like 'Forged in Fire', I can't stand 'Knife or Death'.

/m29168 Joe, yes I signed up online, and it was a piece of cake.
