Coming up in 2024


  • I am excited to reach my Social Security full retirement age this month and to start collecting on the $280,788 that me and my employers contributed during the 48 years we paid in. I’m not sure who believes this is an “entitlement,” but I sure as heck don’t.

  • Wednesday, 04/17: On this day 30 years ago, I came out of the closet after hiding who I really was for 36.5 years. I was in the 16th year of my marriage, and my wife was so incredibly understanding and loving in her response. It so very freeing to be living my authentic life.

  • Sunday, 04/21: Our trial subscription to Gemini, Google’s ChatGPT offering expires and right now, I’m planning on dropping it. It was a 2-month trial that converts to a $20/month service, and overall, I’ve not been impressed with it.

  • Monday, 04/29: It’s our April Mostly Social Book Club meeting. We’ll be discussing The Floating Feldmans, which I read at the beginning of March and rated 4 stars.

  • Tuesday, 04/30: I am attending a free program presented by the Wake County Public Library called Navigating the World of River Cruising, which is described as “an informative program about river cruises. See the world from the water—explore destinations, types of cruises, and what it’s like to cruise rivers of many types, all over the globe.”
