I've been thinking of moving further south. If you don't mind me asking, do you live in the Rio Grande Valley all year long or seasonal? What part? How do you like it? What is your advice for a retiree thinking of moving/living there year round ?
Audrey, you are the only other birder I am aware of on this site, though I am sure there are more. I sent you a friend request, but if you wish to disregard it, feel free. I am not sure about how or what the "friends" function is truly for, but thought I'd give it a try. I love to bird and should be getting ready to go out today instead of posting in early retirement! More coffee!
I'm interested in your discussion about bond funds vs all the other bond/CD/muni discussion. Your opinion is like my DH. I on the other hand think we should put 1/2 of our bond funds into something safe and fixed, we're 61 and won't touch for approx 5 years. Could be CD ladder. You seem to strongly stand behind bond funds. Have you always held that positions?
