as many people know my wife and i have owned and operated a beach front hotel in costa rica . for the last 20 years. i know its tuff but someone has to do it. well well sold it. one more month training and we are out of here. time to be a beach bum. we have 2 beach chairs , 2 boogie boards , 2 hammocks and we are good to go. after a few months we need to buy or build a house. it will all come in its time.... i am a happy man.

Congrats on what sounds like will be an enjoyable retirement.
Just so you guys quit asking, here is the link to the old forum. http://www.xsorbit2....forum/index.cgi

The sky is my canvas, and I have 2,113 pounds of powdered paint in the workshop.

Sounds great. Enjoy your retirement.
