Leftover Q is awesome as it is seasoned and aged. We grilled for Easter and heading over to the close by son today for him to return the favor. Not sure if you had chance to read the linked Gallup poll as it reinforces your point that those of us over 65 aren't the worried ones.

the cost of living in nyc can be as high or as low as you want it to be. 200k a year aftere taxes may not be enough if you like to go to shows and fine restaurantes. our budget is no where near that number so it does involve cutting back on the shows and alot of what the city does offer.

i hate living within a budget and since the kids have been on their own we basically do and buy what we like so giving up 6 figures in pay checks is a cut back enoiugh as it is .

if we lived almost anywhere else i wouldn't sweat it but nyc can be a budget breaker if you want to take constant advantage of things here.
Ummmm, uhhhhhh do you realize what you are suggesting you might have to give up to get expenses down? If this was another forum I would say more.
