Back from Vacation, and the Link of the Week

Just got back from vacation to see family in Sequim WA over on the Olympic Peninsula. The big news around there is I guess Fox News and Huffington Post recently named Sequim the top retirement destination in the country. One 'advantage' they cited was legal marijuana.... like I said last month, marijuana legalization is gaining acceptance and is going to be one of the big issues leading up to the 2016 elections. As to whether Sequim is great when it comes to retirement living, I would agree that it's ideal for some, particularly those who are acclimated to northern states like Alaska or the far northeastern states and just want something a little milder but still with seasons. It doesn't get bitterly cold there and the summers are pretty mild, but the winters are probably still more chilly than many seniors would like.

For this week, the link of the week is actually a podcast from Jack Spirko of the Survival Podcast, titled The Failure of Individual Leadership in America. Don't let the term 'Survival' dissuade you, as the host intelligently covers a wide range of everyday things and is not some bunker-living whack-job that the popular media tries to associate with anything termed 'survivalist' or 'prepper'. Anyway, I think this podcast episode speaks beautifully to the theme of ignoring the herd mentality and taking charge of one's life that the articles here are all about....
