I'm a dot com retiree. Jan 1, 2000. After 13 years, my routine has settled in.

Read two newspapers every morning and abt 2 hrs on the internet (Motley Fool and email mostly). Then what to do with the rest of the day? I'm active in Kiwanis and belong to several local organizations. Enjoy cooking, gardening, reading. Like to travel. I published a family tree book (250 pages) last year and continue to work on getting the family Findagrave graves up to date with photos and links. Active investor. Own abt 40 stocks and research new ones and old ones routinely.

I like reading history and have posted over 100 book reviews on Amazon. (My to-be-read pile is large. But that is mostly winter activity. Now is nice fall season, getting ready for winter.) Used books are inexpensive on Amazon. History books are a great read.

I have a large collection of chemistry and history books. I have 250 books listed for sale on Amazon and Half.com. Just sold two on Ebay. Working down the collection (and finding good homes for the classics) now that they are no longer needed for career.

One wonders how you ever had time to work. There is lots to do.
