Here's something typically Wise. After my (ex-)financial advisor reviewed my savings (401(k) and taxable funds) he told me I will have so much at retirement that I won't even be able to spend the compounding interest. He said I should consider cutting back the amount I put into my 401(k). Ha!

He was of course assuming I will work to 62 (or whatever).

The way I see it, as soon as I have (enter your magic number here), I'm retiring. All I want is a big boat and enough money every month to pay for food and gas. :-) Scoot over Jimmy Buffet, I'm movin' in!!

Paul.
