I write a lot about people who have had the good fortune — and the determination — to start a whole new career or just stay active after retirement and the rewards that activity has brought them. More often than not these "rewards" are physic rather than monetary, but meaningful nevertheless.
At this season of Thanksgiving, I'd like to thank the people who made that possible for me.
For those of us who grew up in a world without computers, cell phones and all of the other electronic wizardry available today, navigating the electronic world is a never-ending, day-to-day challenge. If you're lucky, you'll have people to set the right course for you and help you out every time you go off course. In my case, that seems to be every other day.
They not only built my amazing website, they wrote the "book" for me to follow and have shown me a thousand things that I never would have thought of without their help. More important, they made it possible for me to continue as a newsman and editor after more than 50 years in that business. How do you thank someone for that?
For all of the lucky people who continue to make life interesting and productive, no matter what stage of life it might be, we wish you a very happy Thanksgiving and a life full of joy, love and fulfillment.
Beau Weisman, Editor
