janbb’s story

New Jersey resident, born and bred here; have lived and traveled in Europe. Vocational librarian and teacher, avocational artist and writer.

Love books, hiking, art, wit and real connections with people, getting tired of religion and politics. The road has been a bit bumpy of late but I’m doing fine…

Psst – Don’t tell but I’m not really a penguin, I just play one on the Internet.

JL does distract me. She admits to not reading everyone’s replies (except mine, apparently) which often triggers her stupid answers.

Keep PM’ing me more distractions.

Check out the Vanguard Long Term NJ tax-free fund. VNJTX. I keeo about ⅓ of my portfolio in the similar NY one (VNYTX) and love it, as does my Fidelity adviser. I get a nice income stream from it, deposited automatically monthly into my checking account and the NAV is steady enough; I can live with the cycical wobbles since I do not need the principal. It balances out both the dividend and growth common stocks in my portfolio.

I own no CD’s.

You’ll get Social Security at some point, won’t you? Along with Medicare, which has been a real boon for me. I did augment it with a Medigap policy (type F) from AARP.

Crow keeps writing ma amie, which has to be mon amie for the feminine version, due to the pronunciation issues. Ma amie is impossible to say; the liaison with mon amie works. The listener will get the gender by the context. One could also say ma petite amie for a lover, thereby simplifying everything.

Do you think Fluther has dodged a bullet again?

Still no Finkel baby name.
