Now I show my ignorance of my apartment. I'm not sure what heats this one. A friend had a system heated by electricity but I don't know what fuels ours.

At least soon the days will start getting longer. I can hardly wait.
Thank you new computer.

It is certainly different to handle snow with either my cane or walker. If it's not plowed,I feel stuck. And I have a hard time justifying taking the car for just a couple of blocks. But, I am adjusting.

That is the hard part of living here. I wish people would listen to & abound by the advisories.

So here's a question for you old timers who go back to 2007 on City-Data: Do you find the Retirement Forum much different now?
I go back to 2007 (I think) and can't believe some of the things I posted years back. It's like keeping a 10-year diary online. I feel that some long-gone posters are not missed (by me) and others I do miss. In the Maine forum I miss Island Mermaid. Others include Knoxgarden, from Knoxville. Seems like way back then there was a lot of camaraderie among women retirees, a lot of personal stuff posted online that wouldn't be revealed today. Male posters, I think, were posting more about financial aspects of retirement.

Retirement issues are universally mostly the same, in 3 basic categories: where to relocate to be happier and/or reduce COL, what to do with leisure time, financial decisions. There's lots of trivia and chat in between, which is what builds the sense of online community. A few posters I have no clue about, even their gender or location. I've never had more than 3 or 4 posters on ignore, out of so many who post. I appreciate CD for allowing such a broad range of subject matter and the posters who keep coming back to post.

In from playing with the dogs outside. 3" of snow this morning, 25 degrees f and a brisk 15mph wind. Dried dogs paws off, gave them treats. If it wasn't for the wind it would be pleasant out.

Usually we are 20 -30 degrees warmer here in the Ozarks of north Arkansas vs my former dairy farm in central Minnesota.


This morning the difference was 63 degrees.


-1 vs 62

It's interesting to be reading an older thread and come across a user name that we suddenly realize we haven't encountered for a while. That happened to me today: Jtur88 - whom I had forgotten all about. I looked him up and he hasn't posted for a year or so. I engaged in lots of debates with him, so I don't know why I had "forgotten" him.


And remember that guy who was planning to retire in Bar Harbor (Maine?). He once bragged he had more than 40 posters on ignore! LOL
