69. Yep
My job is stable, I'm better off than when I graduated from school. My wife had no problem finding job when we moved. I have a very low cost home loan and pay less than I paid in rent when I was in school. Honestly I have not suffered any economic hardship.(knock wood)

This is not true for everyone, I know. I work for a large manufacturing company and we have not laid off people for economic reasons.

The small money I put into stocks like IBM, CA and Intel after the market hit do ok. Lucky timing.
