Three items to share as we approach the Philadelphia
national meeting.  One may pertain to the meeting.
Two touch near term thinking.  Of those two, one
is related to Social security benefit claims strategies
and the other to where and how we do our secure
data storage.

to be the next “tigers.”  Terms that may carry
strong meaning– BYOD (bring your own
device), metabolomics (study of processes
by their metabolites) and aquihire (company

occasional “hits”.  Google and find.

There are many alternatives and features
most have not heard.  It can be difficult
reading through regs and web-pages and
then asking the right questions for each
individual case.  These articles illuminate
several things we approaching or into
retirement ought to know and can benefit
from.
Nice guidance in the last item.
