Pixy I would like to suggest a topic I will call transitioning into retirement. For many people this may be a fairly short process. For my wife and I it will be a process of years. I suspect the issues I am wondering about are not specific to us.

I have "retired" from 9 to 5 and earn a buck or two by on line investing (not day or week or even month trading). My wife still is in the 9 to 5 world, but plans to end that. Well there are a few issues like health insurance (until medicare kicks in for me, how to evaluate the various medigap policies, how to decide whether it is better to take IRA/401K money or to begin taking a pension early at a reduced rate, etc. Right now I am not sure what the "etc" is, but I suspect there are issues I have not thought about.
