    And we have NO regrets for moving from Illinois to Iowa. A lot of good came from it, both in terms of career and in our personal lives.

    The "greedy" meme pisses me off, too. A nephew (who is almost 50 and works for the state of LA as a prison nurse) is a regressive. He made sweeping assumptions on Facebook early this year about what a great deal Jim was getting on his pension and lifelong healthcare benefits. When I told nephew that NO Jim did NOT have any healthcare benefits, and in fact is working his post-teaching job just to get benefits (though he will get Medicare when he qualifies next spring), and NO Jim does not have the great pension AND SS that nephew was assuming, and when I told nephew he shouldn't make assumptions about stuff he knows nothing about, he complained that I was grumpy...
