    Sounds like you have researched retirement considerably, especially though this board. You have provided a lot of good info to many folks. I do hope you will continue your fine work here. I just retired on 10/18/09 and am going through the usual adjustment period after moving out of the area I lived in for so long and leaving many friends and co-workers behind. It all good...

    Good luck in future years, Dennis.

    Congrats on your near freedom. With a little luck maybe I can do the same soon. The thoughts in your posts have been thought-provoking. Very helpful.

    Hi, Want2Retire --

    Thanks for your reply to my post. Indeed, I'm genuine. Question, please: Can you suggest any threads, areas of the site, etc. where I can post to have the greatest chance of finding leveraged ETF users for my story? Are there common or popular areas where my query would get the widest possible distribution? Any suggestions you can make along these lines would be much appreciated. -- Thanks, Walter

    I really enjoy your posts. You have both knowledge and common sense about finances and life. Have you ever thought of writing a book? I think it would appeal to those who need encouragement and a guide for enjoying life with financial savvy.
