Happy birthday, Val

My youngest sister, age 6. I'll refrain from mentioning her age or the year she was born, but will note that her employer has started dropping hints that she consider taking a buyout and an early retirement. My gift to Val this year? Advice that she ignore all those buyout suggestions -- the buyout money disappears way too fast and the actual pension sucks.  


  1. Dear Val, If you enjoy your job, stay; if not, take the money and run. Find something interesting. Move to the Falkland Islands or Papua New Guinea or anywhere different. See the world, write a book. Start a war, breed tigers.


My space, my rules: play nice and keep it on topic.
