  3. We trailered to Tucson this weekend for the ADRA and American Dragster races. I’m a foot braker only - no transbrake like most entered, so I’m at a small handicap. I placed third in ADRA’s Saturday race and won a little money. That’s a feat (feet) 😂 I thought about adding a trans brake but decided I’m liking the old school challenge of working the feet vs a button. I also got the coveted .000 reaction time on the qualifying “throw us random index qualifying run” for American Dragster. Odd rules they have but very challenging. It was only qualifying but still I never thought I’d see .000 ever! I’m entering Tucson dragways foot brake race next month. It won’t be same weekend as the Tucson ACE cruise thankfully. My bracket racing is getting pretty good! Lonnie’s been quite the teacher and he was kind of impressed with my new launch skills! I’m done bragging but had to share since I’ve posted since the start of my building and racing. we removed the back window screen and added (of course) chrome stripes which made the car faster. 😂 the DA was 5700 and my car doesn’t like it at all but bracket racing is strategy vs fast time so all was good. I got 27 runs in and still wanted more. A great time was had and I can’t wait for the next race! IMG_1598.MOV

  9. call me. I’m a health insurance guru. I only do group now but I will help you through your options. I help people through this all the time now because private healthcare has gotten confusing since the ACA came into play.

  10. The most important thing is to think about what your personal needs are for coverage, and then educate yourself about what's out there. . . You can temporarily (this is only a short-term option) continue your existing health coverage under COBRA (pricey, but can be worth it in the event of expected health problems). Info here: https://bairdretirementmanagement.com/insight-articles-what-you-need-to-know-about-cobra/ Alternatively, check to see if your employer has a provision to allow you to keep your existing coverage with you paying the full premium (this is NOT COBRA, but was what I was able to do when I retired). Something to consider is that if you allow your existing health insurance to lapse, and you are entirely without health coverage for a while, this can sometimes have an adverse affect on your future coverage availability and cost. Also, if you have no coverage, unless the law has changed, you will be charged a penalty for not being covered when you file your federal income taxes. Here is some general info that could be helpful: https://www.investopedia.com/best-health-insurance-for-retirees-5087266 (there is a lot of talk about Medicare, but near the bottom of the page there are two links to "Golden Rule" and "Cigna" that are specifically for "under age 65"). Here is a link to search private plans in Arizona https://www.ehealthinsurance.com/arizona-health-insurance/health-plans/individual-medical Also, if I were in your place, I would do some research on the websites of reputable companies that offer private health care policies, such as Aetna and Blue Cross Blue Shield. Good luck!

  17. I retired at 62, but didn't start collecting SSI until 66.25. It doesn't pay to retire early and collect SSI at 62, you get boned on the pay. I'm MUCH happier now and like that Sleepy Joe is looking out for me... I do more now than when I was working full time for sure and they said that these would be the Golden years, yeah right. The only thing golden is the morning pee. I do enjoy not having to go to stupid useless meetings two and three times a day, doing useless reports that nobody reads and then ask you questions about stupid things or bitch about things that were in your report...that they never read. (really) Answer stupid calls from management, get up at 4am to be to work by 6am, deploying all over the world and get shot at, rocketed and last but not least, having to drive on the freeway in the morning and play death race 2000. Now, my biggest decision in the morning is...should I have toast with my eggs and have a second cup of coffee? I think you will be fine and will also find that you will have tons of projects (honey do's) to do while you are doing nothing. GL with your retirement.

  18. Two things.... 1st, admiring Mark for his upcoming retirement. 2nd, getting over the sticker shock of a new back tire for the Z06 ( $748.41 installed). Apparently somebody left their box cutter in the roadway and my back tire found it.🤬
