Lately, I’ve been dealing with calls about garbage disposal issues so I thought that might be a good topic for the month. I don’t mean to offend the composting advocates in the crowd but disposals, or food grinders, are being installed in more and more of today’s modern kitchens.

A good weekend gone by and with rain! They say an inch of rain is worth a billion dollars, and I believe it. The TV said it will start to rain in Lyons, at 5:22 p.m., and it did! It came down fast and furious, cars were stopped, 1-25 was closed, etc., but it was worth it. Whee! That heat got to us! Sad to say, it came a month too late, and would have stopped the rash of wildfires

Well, we made it. The 36th annual Lyons Good Old Days were good, but hot! The hottest in 58 years! It was 104 in Longmont, and it is usually 10 degrees cooler in Lyons, but when it gets that hot, you can’t tell the difference. However, we all made it. It was nice when that sun went down. All had an enjoyable weekend with many folks coming back to their “old hometown.”

This past week some comments by AIG CEO Robert Benmosche went viral as he said he expects the average retirement age to jump to age 80. This just added fuel to the fire of fear that many in their 50s and 60s already have. A case in point: more than half of all baby boomers fear running out of money in retirement more than they fear death. This is according to a study from Allianz Life. Yet nearly 36% of these same people do not know how long their funds will last once they do retire.
