Nice to hear from you again Rich. I also had some health issues but things are much better now. When I was young I never thought I would make it to age 65 but now I have made it. Good luck on the sale of your home in Florida. Keep us updated. From the class of 2012. oldtrig

Welcome back. I was wondering where you were also. Sorry to hear about the health issues. I hope that your house sells quickly also. My nephew sold his house quickly in VA. He is fairly close to the DC area. They finally bought a house in Stafford VA. They were outbid on several houses and finally put a bid in for over the asking price and got the house. Kids and grandkids are a strong pull. My DD and my granddaughter are back in WV with us. Our son-in-law is coming back the end of Nov and we will have all of our family back home at last. Who knows how long that will be for, but I am grateful for all the time I can get.

Good to have you back, we missed you. I hope things go well with the house sale and move to... wherever you end up.

Welcome back, Rich. I think that you may find living in flyover country a rude shock after lots of time on the coast, but you get over it (I did). Hope the hosue sale goes well.

Yes, different (for better and worse). 21 years living in Wisconsin under my belt, so that would be good practice. Climate is getting more and more important to us as we age and get a little less nimble.

You've gotten every penny you deserved from the "Ask Rich" show, and look where you are today.

Now go take some ginseng and take a nap.

Columbia (Mizzou) to be precise. It's not a bad little college town; weather is extreme and unpredictable, though.

Columbia is a good choice. I would not live in San Francisco for all the granola in California,

I grew up in Columbia and think it would be a great place for you. My mom always thought it was a wonderful town for retirees. You can always go somewhere warm in the winter. Glad to have you back, also.

If you get up their this fall, Rich, do a fellow forum member a favor and attend a game and cheer hard for the Tigers. I have a sizable bet on them winning more than 6 games this year. They are 2-1, but I am nervous!

Count me among those who are glad to see R-i-T posting.

When a forum member mentioned some health problems, then disappeared for a while, it sure makes one wonder.

Well, when someone disappeared without mentioning any health problem, it makes me wonder too. I am still waiting to see CJ (aka CuppaJoe) making an appearance. Or has she been lurking? Come on CJ!

I am logging in from a coastal town in Northern CA. Been RV'in as I said before going silent, and will be incommunicado again soon.

Welcome back. Like the others I was wondering where you were, glad to hear whatever health issues have/are resolving favorably.

Welcome back!!! Delighted to hear you are feeling better.

I can't comment on Tampa's real estate but my son and his family are headed your way next week to do their part in improving your economy.

Let me put in a vote for Redwood City. Great weather year round.
