In Honor of
National Ask a Stupid Question Day
SOON IT WILL BE ASK A STUPID QUESTION DAY. It's your opportunity to speak up, and to ask all those questions you were afraid to ask. All those questions that you thought were too stupid or dumb to ask have been piling up all year long. Today is the day to unload them.
As I write this, I recall of one of the dumbest questions I encountered as a travel agent during my "working" days. I was quoting prices for hotel and airfare for a client who wished to go to Hawaii and visit several of the islands. When I told her what inner-island flights cost, she asked, "Well, can't I just drive between the islands?"
You probably have similar memories from your working days so click on the "Contact Us" tab above and tell me about them. I'll post them for all to see, and we'll all have a good laugh at some unknown's expense. Meanwhile, take a look at this video that relates some of the stupid questions that rangers field at our National Parks.

HOW I GOT WHERE I AM
Still hoping you'll be writing your "story" of where and why you're living where you are. Some have chosen to write a lengthy narrative, which has been wonderful; but I fear it's frightened off others.
Please just share what made you choose your hometown to retire in; or if you're still working, please tell us where and what keeps you going. We'll take stories of any size - we just want to catch up on YOU!
You can email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or post them on "What's New!"
You'll find the answers we've received so far - How I Got Where I Am - listed to the left of the HOME PAGE.

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW BUT ARE
TOO SHY TO ASK
We didn't have the "computer advantage" when we were growing up so many of us are a little timid when approaching this newfangled contraption. With that in mind, a new forum section entitled "All You Need to Know But Are too Shy to Ask" has been created.
The new feature has directions for many of the skills needed to take full advantage of our web site. It even explains how to print those directions so you can have them in front of you as you navigate into new territory.
A second feature explains exactly how to obtain additional help with any problem which may come up. It's really simple: just email me, as site administrator; and I'll get the answer straight from the experts at Class Creator.
So now, with a little bit of determination, you can fully explore the site, send emails, reply to survey questions, comment in forums, and load pictures. Just click on the link below.
