But I continue to worry about the things that could go wrong, especially the cost of health care.

I might also be open to more menial work.

If I were retired, the cost of health insurance is what would most likely drive me back to work, and I, too, would be open to more manual work.

I will look for organizations that will allow me to work part-time while paying part or all of my health insurance. Last time I checked, which was a while ago, Starbucks, UPS, and our local food co-op did offer health benefits to part-time employees. A deli-cook position at the co-op would be interesting for me.

Another option is to be self-employed doing computer programming part-time and applying to join a government or trade association pool for group insurance.
