The Myth Of Safe Withdrawal Rates

By Doug Carey

What do retirees in 1921, 1966, and 2010 have in common? Very little of course, yet many financial advisors are still using ideas from 1921 to plan retirement today.

The truth is these dates weren’t chosen at random: One had the highest safe withdrawal rate in

Insatiable
Alexa DiSalvo

Drunken drawings
scribbled on skin
tattoos
I section your body
Will I ever get enough?
So, with pen I ration smooth parts
and rougher ones
the calloused palm
I read like brail
even though I know
That story
by heart
When we’re apart
I shuffle barefoot and bones
malnourished
depraved
reprimanding my indecent hunger
Still, by night hour
mouth tongue fingers
devour...
Meticulous blueprint
blurs wet
ink stains and gloss
So lost
Even though I know
That map by heart.

By Dr. Sara Hart, ND, MSOM, LAc

It’s a perfect day when you wake up naturally without an alarm.  To arise fully rested, stretch your arms leisurely and yawn.  Pondering with a gentle inquisition, “hmmm, what do I feel like doing today?”  Rather than the rush of too many responsibilities to juggel comfortably.  When fresh vital foods are all that you crave so you make yourself a gorgeous meal to start your day.

Traveling In Luxury – The First Day

Roads Traveled With Linda L. Osmundson

My husband Bob and I flew to San Diego a day early for our scheduled Sea of Cortez cruise aboard the MS Statandam. Good thing. Denver’s predicted snow storm blew in that night and blanketed DIA causing flight delays the next morning. We might have, as the saying goes, “Missed the boat!” That said, I never let any of the 557 crew
