RE: Social Security question/ help please if you know

Was going to take it at 62; had a STEMI severe heart attack just 3.5 months before I turned 61; applied and recieved my disability in July 2013 the day before my birthday. This January medicare starts. I chose Cigna HealthSpring as it reduced my Part B to $62.90 a month. I get VA 100% medical care and will use the Medicare for Emergencies if needed. Did a lot of Rving and work camping since 1998 and traveling until Aug. 2012; finally decided to park it for a spell.

RE: How you heatin?

Lived in a depression-era built house in the 50's-60's on the second level with nothing but the trusses showing and melting icicles dripping on the bed and floor in the morning when the parents turned up the oil burner and kerosene heater. 60 miles south of Montreal Quebec on the NY state side. Believe I have it better now with a %er built in Washington; 34' long. Use an Amish knock off heater and a milk house heater. When in drops below 25 outdoors the big furnace comes on. Life is good here in the Music City TN. area!

RE: Unflattering work camper article rebutted

The author only writes what she wants us to hear; just like the TV; Radio and newspaper talking heads! When one has an agenda they take it to the limits of blowing it all out od proportion!

RE: Too much of a good thing? Retirement on the Road NYT

Some like Coffee others like tea; some like Fords others like Chevy; some like chocolate others like vanilla. What ever makes one happy is where they should be!! Make the best of each day that your higher power allows you to awaken; open your eyes and put your two feet on the ground. Too enjoy ones' life is too live it to the best of your abilities! Rant ended!:C

RE: RVs and the migrant elderly workers of our times

Ran out of room on the last post!!! I see many young folks in their 30's who still live with thier parents because they refuse to work for minimum wages. I asked a 50+ yr. old man who still lived with his parents in their 80's what he was going to do when his parents died. He scrugged his shoulders and said, "I don't know"! This was a high school acquaintance from the early 1970's who was an honor student; and had an A Report card.

RE: RVs and the migrant elderly workers of our times

Slanted Journalism at it's best what I read of the article from the first poster. This had been done before and most likely for a time to come. I however feel this way; "if it takes doing the labor it takes to survive it it better than living under a bridge". The not so affluent RVer's have an opportunity to locate work and maybe have a bit of dignity and pride that people lose when being employed for minimum wage jobs and it cost more than one makes to pay rent; utilities; buy food and never mind having any healthcare. For instance at The big Warehouse; one gets at least $9.90 hr.; site/utilities; employer has incentives for give-aways; some employer sponsered meals during the holiday period. And the best part it is a few thousand $$$$'s in the coffers to keep your head above water. You don't stand around during work hours sitting on your thumbs. You can work 40-55 hours a week + the 15='s 30 hours of pay.
