Wed a wonderful woman 53 years ago. We shared in the upbringing of our 8 daughters and continue to support them as they raise our 19, (and counting), grandchildren. Retired since 1993. Had 13 different "jobs" while working for the same employer for 31 years. Over-educated and opinionated, and prefer doing things my way.
I worked my way through school (as a cook, retail clerk, factory worker, computer support technician, waiter, counselor, corrections officer, and campus police) and earned economics & accounting degrees, plus some "certified nerd" credentials. (I was possibly the only accountant in history who was ever on a CERT/tactical team.) Became a fiscal analyst and college bursar; managed cash, card processing, receivables, and collections.
Semi-retired young and became a landlord.
Governments are in a race to devalue their currencies. A defense is to own the tangible things that people in any country must have: natural resources & real estate.
