Planning for Retirement / Investing

Just curious...

How often do you guys actively think about retirement? Do you have plans in place? Do you have goals in mind?

You mean all those foil and variant covers I bought in the 90's won't be enough to retire on when I'm ready too in 25 years

I have a Retirement IRA; besides that, my ex-wife's attorney got his claws into everything else, which is amusing since she never has to work a day of her life (nor has she, outside of her family's enterprises), and I do (and want to).

I'm not buying another house any time soon, so at least that's less stress (sort of).

Does this qualify as my usual "answering your question without answering your question", Rob?

Me and Mrs Hobbit both have 401K's and I've been shifting many of my investments from high growth to income producing stocks. When the market was down, I chose to pump a lot of cash into our 401K's and it's paying off now. Give me about 5 years and the income produced will cover my take home pay I get now.

I think about retirement daily and follow all my stocks very closely. I check all news articles and my Schwab account gets me investment advice from Schwab, S&P, Reuters, and a few others.

Let's just say I've got an investment that when it hits, I'll be buying the master replicas Millenium Falcon & x-wing, the new ST Enterprise, and a few other grails.
