Please pray for family member stricken tonight with extended seizures; taken to ER, breathing tube.

She has never before had a seizure; had previous illnesses of uncontrolled diabetes, kidney disease, and stroke.
She will be transferred to this area's largest hospital, where neurologists can monitor electronically her brain function, etc.

I was with her when this occurred; I thought I was losing her.
I have no idea what will follow, but believe prayer united can be powerful.

I was in college in Tarrytown when the Tappan Zee Bridge was built - mid 1950's.

Every day we heard the loud pounding of motors and machines putting in place the structures for that awesome long bridge to Nyack and western New York.
Then, finally, went to the dedication, at which Gov. Averill Harriman spoke.

Time flies...

Watching, even hearing, Individual1 erodes the soul; even 8 minutes is too long.

I get more than enough discussion of the national topics from informed newscasters.

I hope Public television has good alternatives tonight. - Perhaps Antiques Roadshow.
I will watch Speaker Pelosi and Sen. Schumer, however.

Generalizations make statements less accurate, thus less powerful.

If one says "Some religionists are willing.....etc.", the statement may have validity.

Overstatements defeat the purpose intended.

It's later than we think!

Time flies by.
Old friends, with whom you shared your youth or early adulthood, know you ina way that later friends never will.
Old friends know where you're coming from when you speak or interacting with them.

And many are gone in the blink of an eye, forever.

It sounds as though you're plenty familiar with the ins and outs of retirement finance.

That's a good thing.

The IRA was originally my spouse's, so I inherited it, and, God willing, our children will inherit the balance.

I am no longer eligible to convert traditional IRA to Roth, because total income is too great. While we were a two-person household it was possible tax-wise, and we have a smallish one, but not after I became a single person.

I'm in that age bracket, well diversified financially, and am down 10% of portfolio YTD.

Of course, that's on paper only, no need to make changes or sell at this time.

Have a very good financial advisor, one who doesn't panic or make changes precipitously.
We came back quite well from the problems in 2008.

From my perspective, the losses now, at the end of Dec. mean that my RMD requirement will be lower this year than otherwise - a good thing.
