    Retirement Anarchy

    from your explanation - you and your boss feel obligated to each other for various reasons, yet you both know that everything about the business is on the slide. If you walk now your boss will not lose any respect for you and will probably appreciate the reduction in his costs. As everyone else has said - if you can afford it, get out and start living the life you want.

    Camino de Santiago

    I have a friend who is in the final days of her Camino walk, she is doing the full length of the French Way from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, France to Santiago de Compostela = 732km , I have not yet heard the long versions of her stories yet, but a consistent comment in our short exchanges has been how crowded the walk was at this time of year. The only thing that has not gone completely to plan has been the weather ( 4 seasons in a day stuff), otherwise food & lodging has all worked out so far. Once complete she will have a short break in London then off for another month of walking in Northern parts of the UK, which to her will be the highlight of the trip.

    same fella did the Flying Bus, Mr Dick Smith, an interesting nutter - flew a helicopter around the world single handed, sailed to the Antarctic single handed. Had an electronic components store with a sign out the front "Horse pollution grows flowers".

    good thing there are so many covers on the cockpit - saves having to look at that mainsail photographed 1 mile offshore

    Jeff Bridges has been in many movies, most of which are critically acclaimed art, direction, and purpose. During his tenure, Jeff also was making art of his own. Using an old school panoramic Widelux film camera, Jeff Bridges spent the last 35 years capturing some amazing behind-the-scenes photos from his movies ranging from The Big Lebowski to Iron Man.
