Hello from the Bluegrass State...

Hi Everyone!
I am a recently retired teacher. I stumbled upon this forum one day while searching for a place to rant about the recent market plunge. Misery DOES love company. So forgive me for taking some comfort reading posts that echo my own sentiments right now...ouch, it hurts like heck to see the portfolio move south instead of ME.
This seems like a great forum with some interesting characters posting, some good investment info, and generally a good place to share thoughts and concerns!

You'll find you will like retirement. You can do what you want to do, or not do, as you see fit.
When I was a kid I wanted to be older. This is not what I expected.
