48, retired and wanting to get the most out of my $$

This forum looks great!
I'm a retired computer programmer/analyst.
I hope to get some investment tips here.
My new hobby is Value Investing.
I recently read Graham & Dodd's Security Analysis.
I'm also interested to share with like-minded people.

Talk about going back to the "bible" of investing. I have to give you a big thumbs up for making it through such a tome.
