  Will offer PDA Consultant Service


Since I have extensive experience implementing PALM OS and Windows Mobile PDA solutions, I have decided to offer consultant services within the 495 belt of Boston, MA, USA on the use of Palm OS and / or Windows Mobile devices as business solutions tools. I have registered ConsultPDA.com and will start development of that site immediately. I do not anticipate this service being a full time 40 hour a week endeavor, but would work full time while developing a client's solution and then take some time off before starting on the next client's business solution.

In addition to the obvious benefit of a supplemental income, this activity will help keep my mind sharp, my priority retirement goal.

  9 month vacation - time to buckle down


It is now more than 9 months since I stopped working, and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. However, it is now time to start my two major retirement projects: major weight loss and major file review. I can still go out every day and enjoy myself, but I must devote a couple of hours a day to the file review and watch what I eat.

It is hard to believe that I am approaching the 9 month anniversary of my last workday. I have been thoroughly enjoying the retirement, everday is like a weekend. I have not seriously started my two major retirement projects: a major weight loss, and the review of all files, books, and other accumulated material.

I must start those two projects immediately. I hope to loose 60 pounds before I go on vacation in August and loose another 20 pounds before the end of 2005. I also want to devote at least 2 hours per day, 4 days a week to a complete review of all files, books, gadgets, etc. that I have accumulated over the years and determine if the items should be discarded or kept.
 
I am 98% sure I will be retiring on June 30, 2004, the last day to qualify for the retirement incentive of an extra 5 years added to your age or years of service. Update - I did take the retirement on June 30, 2004. This will be my second retirement. I retired in November 1992, again taking advantage of a retirement incentive. This retirement will be different; I will be 57 and the do not anticipate being employed full time again.
