Hello From Syracuse

Hello everyone!

I am 59 years old and am from Syracuse NY. I just joined and I mean just joined this group. I am pulling the trigger and retiring after a 30 year career with what is now a Fortune 100 company. I have been a member of the Bogleheads site for a number of years. I hope I can read and gain information from this site as well as I move forward.

Thanks,

Jerry

Good Luck Jerry. I'm sure as a Boglehead you are well aware of things financial. I owe my retirement to the diehards.

I am also new to this site. It seems like a good one. Enjoy your retirement.

Gerry with a G

Another welcome.
I lived in Syracuse for a few years a long time ago, and was just back for a short visit last week. Glad to see Clark's Ale House is back!

The first week of retirement has been grand. I see my DW off to work then head either to the golf course or the gym. Reading for pleasure is a delight!!

Used to travel frequently to Camillus, NY back in the 70s for systems development work for my former mega-corp. It'a beautiful country up that way, but it seemed during the winter, every day it was snowing on more days than not.

For sure. And if it's not snowing, it's cloudy. I didn't realize that the sun could shine in the winter until I went to UMass for grad school.
