This thread is dedicated to those of us who have "retired" and wondering what to do with ourselves, how to cope, where we can find a good mix of safety/income with investments, or any other issues of retirement that you may want to discuss.

Please! No political/religious arguements! Keep this supportive. I made this moderated so I can ban instigators.

All suggestions welcome.
