Well, this board appears to be dead.

Can we liven things up a bit?

Our retirement expenses are more than we thought they'd be.
We spend a lot of money on food.
We got a puppy and he eats like a horse.
The cat is old and her teeth bother her so we cook for her.
Some of the things that we were surprised at was the fact that utilities cost less here in our little town in MA than they did on Long Island and Brooklyn. I run the clothes dryer almost every single day and my electric bill runs about the same as what I spent doing laundry in the basement of our apartment building in Brooklyn.
Food is much cheaper, and in some instances, 50% cheaper than the supermarkets in Brooklyn Heights - where everything was a ripoff.
The neighbors are much much nicer here too.
