  • When everyone is a newbie 5 days ago People are dealing with lockdown differently. Some binge on Netflix while some seize the opportunity to pursue goals that were put off or even long-forgotten but rediscovered. Some start a new hobby or take an online course. There is no right or wrong way to use this time.
  • A good lockdown 2 months ago One year ago, Jiab and I were hiking El Camino de Santiago, the famed pilgrims’ way Ironically, I realize that the same thing that buoyed us on the long trek is what helps us endure the confinement of today, the mutual support of others in the same situation.
  • Flatten the "emotion" curve 2 months ago By now we all have heard the phrase “flatten the curve” and know what it means. I think, however, that “flatten the curve” can also apply to our emotions
  • Un saludo 2 months ago Greetings around the world vary, but they all have something in common; they feel awkward at first to foreigners.
  • The Highest Good 1 month ago When there is a concerted chorus of medical expertise saying we should stay home and keep safe distances, why are so many Americans still ignoring or even openly defying this advice? Many address this as a moral/ethical issue. I tend to look at things from a behavioral economics point of view.

Loving this blog! Not only is it funny, but it’s full of practical ideas. Not actually moving to Granada to live? One can enjoy the travel ideas and insights, as well as the tips for managing as one plans toward retirement.

This is probably the best blog I’ve ever read. Jim has an uncanny way with words, and Jiab with numbers. They pair up to bring posts that are filled with excellent information, but are easy to read and downright entertaining. I look forward to every post

I get so much insight from Jiab's posts - learning of things I didn't know were possible and gaining tools that I can use for my future finances. Jim tells stories of life and the area that are amusing and thought-provoking. His posts seem like fragments of a novel with his crafty prose. Thanks to this blog, I know that every Wednesday I'm in for a treat!

Witty, excellent writing, and love their perspectives on balancing planning and enjoying the now. I plan to take some cues from them, so glad they are sharing their experiences.
