"""One of the biggest mistakes I've seen neighbors and friends make over the years, was deciding on a moment's notice to move to FL or AZ or wherever, just because they vacationed there."""

You're right Al. I almost made that mistake, but regained consiousness[sp?] in time. And you can't live on 1/2 of what you were making while working unless that's all you were spending anyway.

One can probably retire comfortably on about $750,000 worth of good yielding,relatively safe investments, depending on the cost of living where you are.
