Retirement Talk

WHAT to do with the rest of your life?


Del Lowery "Retirement Talk is an audio podcast (written script a click away) intended to help people who are retired, or considering retirement, to examine their own lives. We will consider an active retirement life in all its facets - not just financial. A retirement life-style that has been considered  carefully is our goal. We want to encourage thought and action."

439 Work with the Hands

For some reason working with the hands offers rewards that are unique. For some of us those rewards are beyond words. They offer us a key to a satisfying retirement.

438 What's Next


I keep thinking of how much I loved my IBM Selective typewriter and then I was convinced I'd be better off with a computer. It has changed my life. Are the technological innovations that appear today as appealing or effective? What to do?

437 How Will I Die



However you think you may die you will most probably be wrong. I remember reading that somewhere. I believe it. We sometimes worry about things over which we have little to no control. Cause of our own death is one of them.

436 Who Can You Trust



"All men are created equal" has become an American axiom. It doesn't mean we all know as much as the next guy. Science has a way of requiring certain abilities and efforts that escape many of us. Can we trust science? Or are we better off trusting our politicians or our opinionated neighbor concerning scientific matters?

435 Slow Travel



We live in a fast paced world and moving slowly seems to be foreign to us. We are tempted to take speed with us even when we vacation or travel. It is the opposite of what we really need when we are trying to recreate. Do we see more when we speed up or slow down?

434 A Second Opinion



Retirement comes later in life as do accumulating health problems. We start to fade. What to do when we develop health problems that require professional attention? Sometimes we get a diagnosis that just doesn't feel right. What to do?
