Hi Kathy, and welcome to the ER Forum. I see from your profile that you live in California. We'd love to hear more about you! Are you already retired, or working and thinking about retirement, for example? Or, I am sure you can think of other things to say in order to introduce yourself to the forum. Thanks!
