If there's one thing I've learned over the course of the many, many trips we've taken throughout the USA since retiring, it's that there are a whole lot of opinions about my native state of California from a whole lot of people that have never lived here. For the most part I find it endlessly entertaining, such as being asked what it's like to live among movie stars. Well, we don't actually because most of them live behind locked gates in very exclusive areas. Or, if it's true that we can sunbathe year round? Sadly, no, though for sure you can do anything other than sunbathe year round!.
And while much of what I've heard opined about is accurate, such as traffic - yep, we have it, but primarily because 10% of you all live here! - much of it is not. For example, doesn't our whole state catch fire every year? Well, no, though the news makes it sound that way. Remember that we're a pretty darn large piece of real estate, so even if a story about C…
I was honored recently to be asked to write a blog post about the experience of relocating in retirement by Sue over at the most excellent Sizzling Toward 60 & Beyond. In that the post just went live, I'm happy to share news of it here, in the hopes that you'll hop on over using the link below, and enjoy perusing it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
And after you've read it, I hope you'll continue to return to Sue's blog, which I list in my blog roll here. The array of topics she covers all relate to thriving in our 50's, 60's and beyond, and it is consistently one of my favorite reads.
The article has also just been listed here on The Blogger's Lifestyle as well, a blog full of interesting links to articles about living large in our 50's and beyond. Well worth checking out!

Greetings, and welcome to 10 Things On My Winter Bucket List!
Goodness winter got here fast! And though I admit it's not quite the winter I'd imagined (I'm talking to you washing machine overflow!), I have many, many things to look forward to, and I am excited to get going on them.
P.S. - Be sure to scroll down to the bottome of this postto see what other wonderful bloggers are joining in on this challenge. 10 Things On My Winter Bucket List 1. Skype our granddaughter on Christmas morning in order to watch her open presents. This is going to take some nagging, in that my daughter prefers FaceTiming, but I want a great big computer screen on Christmas, not a little iPhone screen!
2. Go for a hike at the beach on Christmas morning. Since we'll be attending services on Christmas Eve, then waking at the right ole hour of 4:00 AM or so to watch our little granddaughter open her gifts on the east coast, we thought we'd keep right on going and head out afterward to enjoy t…
