    Happy, happy, HAPPIEST!!! of birthdays, John!!!!!

    As for Social Security–well, y’know, if Congress would just raise the cap on paying into Social Security by a few thousand dollars (some say as little as $3,000), Social Security would be there, not only for our kids, but our grandchildren as well. Not that THAT is going to happen, not in this Congress. *sigh*

    And how I wish, instead of Obamacare, which only got through because the insurance companies are involved, and so it isn’t really as socialist as FAUX News would have the public believe, , Medicare had just been expanded to EVERYBODY. Because, after all, what is Medicare but a National Health Service for those 65 and older?

    And above all, remember that if 60 is the new 30, you’re only 35!

    Many, many, MANY years of health, happiness, and writing, John!
