Looking for a place like this

Hi, I am mostly retired here in Iowa. My husband has been retired for some years before me. I do work part time at home for my son, mostly to pay for our health insurance, since we are not yet eligible for Medicare.

I have been looking for a forum that is not about budgeting or how to save tons of money. I am interested in investing and the early retirement lifestyle and it looks like this may be a good fit. I followed Dave Ramsey to get debt free years ago and I now follow Bob Brinker for some of my investing needs.

I have read some of the posts and look forward to learning more. I also tried the firecalc. This looks like a very interesting tool.

Why be normal when you can be yourself?
