There is a lot of talk about the economy all the time.  Mostly all you hear is how Americans are out of work, or how racially biased the American economy is so black people can't get a job, or claims about unemployment and people on food stamps.  None of it is evident here in Southern California!   Every one drives a new car, there is no parking at the beach or shopping centers, there is an hour wait at restaurants, millions of dollars are spent every weekend going to the movies, or to the casino.  There just isn't much wrong with the economy here.  The young foreigner who works at the drive-thru at McDonalds where I go - I don't know what country she comes from - wears extensions in her hair and has gel nails!   And a friend of mine who goes to the pool in the retirement community where I live says his neighbor has a caregiver from Figi and she makes $200 a day - paid for by the insurance company - to take care of  this elderly lady neighbor.   No wonder the caregiver was able to buy a brand new Ford Fiesta recently!   

So I am going to talk about jobs - and also about that magical mystical land of retirement which I just opened the door to!
