Having been a working woman nearly all my life (since I was very young), I thought that I would love 'retirement' - WRONG - I am not the type to sit around and do very little.

My husband and I are more active now that when we owned a computer business. I enjoy writing on Hub Pages about some of our experiences over the time. Our lenses will be varied; some on practical matters, some not. Come join us our our voyage!
