Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays to All!

Thank you everyone for your advice and support this past year, from how to get my house ready to put on the market, to whether I should buy Long Term Care, etc. I am grateful for this Forum.

I would like to wish you and your loved ones a wonderful holiday season and a happy 2011.

From all of us at casa del FD:

Happy holidays everyone! May you stay safe and warm during this holiday season.

Based on this ER.org-sponsored "scientific study" (Poll for Retirees: What's Most Important to a Successful Retirement?), we wish you all good health, plenty of money and loads of fulfilling activities for the new year.

Our Nativity scene is minimalistic and does not have this guy-No caganers please-We are Galicians!!

I lack T-Al's creativity so our Holiday Card is just a simple photo of DW and I. Can you spot the caganer?
