Well...I guess I might sound a little irresponsible, but I hope that people planning to max out their monthly contributions to their retirement don't forget to keep out enough to enjoy their lives a little while they are still young enough to do so.

Retirement is an extremely important part of life, however, so is the process of day-to-day living. Life can be tough and full of stress, so a reasonable amount of programmed fun is certainly in order. Who knows whether a person will ultimately live long enough to enjoy all of the sacrifices made along the way to retirement? Life is, after all, pretty short!

I'm sure that everyone is well aware of this point, but, for some reason, I just felt compelled to mention it. I also feel compelled to compliment Russ for his many and significant contributions to this and other boards. Maybe it's just because it's the Christmas Season or something - who knows?

Anyway...Merry Christmas to all of you in the North and ya'll in the South!!!
