I've met 8, and nicer people would be hard to find. I hope to see any of them again, and meet some new friends also.

I MAY have investment/client relationship with one member. I haven't confirmed it. If I did, I would transfer the investment to keep perspective.

And the irony is, I am reluctant to recommend this site to people I know because I'm sure they'll recognize me in time since my name is actually Midpack (or I might be lying). I want to because I know it would probably be very helpful, but I'm torn. Not what the site owners want to hear I'm sure, but it is what it is...

I really don't know many interested in LBYM, investments, retirement... Well, maybe retirement, just not the stuff it takes to retire.

True.

Why worry about the future - that may never come, when you can "live large" today!

Freebird5825 that looks like the winter of 2011 did here, unfortunately we don't always have that much snow on the ground in winter. Snow? I LOVE it!

I know one other person who infrequently posts here. It's someone I've known for a long time, though. Predating the World Wide Web, even. But I FIREd first! (neener, neener, neener...)

I hate to realize how obscure this reference may seem to some of our younger members...

Ah HA I knew I'd get at least 1 bravehearted soul to respond to the "dead of winter" invitation.
Judging by the dogs' appearance, I'm guessing within the last 5 years.
I cannot remember exactly which year that picture was taken, but it was the most snow I'd ever seen piled up in the backyard. And I'm too lazy to go to NOAA to look up the snowfall records.

The younger ones are still accumulating. The older ones are already off-planet. Only us mid-level types here. Me, I'm more of a Jubal Harshaw wannabe.

No one....but the fact that I live in Hong Kong may (or may not) have something to do with that.

It's been at least a couple of decades since I read any of Heinlein's books. Enjoyed them for the most part.

That might be difficult - my cat is even more of an INTJ than I am
