MegaCorp retiree, age 50

Hi, all. Just a short introduction. I just retired from the aerospace business in El Segundo, CA. Business climate was starting to get depressed and rather than hang around and watch that I decided it was time. Because of LBYM behavior, I believe that I am in great shape financially in terms of net worth but I do need to reshape the portfolio to a distribution phase configuration. So, I've come here to learn and maybe participate in other areas like travel, and healthcare.

I'm in the same line of business, and just up the street from you

I'm not anywhere near retirement age yet, but if I were, I'd definitely be looking to get out of the aerospace business about now. I think it's in for a long stretch of downsizing.

Best of luck and feel free to PM me if you want to talk shop!

Hey, I got lost for a bit due to decision making (no trade matrices) and just wanted to say thanks for all your welcomes. Sounds like a few fellow engineering types here.

Another welcome note from me this time, but not an engineering type. :-)
