    In my experience in the corporate world, it's actually against HR policy to tell prospective employers any more than the fact that that person worked there and specific dates of employment. That...

    Absolutely. And I agree with Tybee, too. We gave our kids their undergrad degree--anything past that was on their dime. As for houses, that will be tough but I am hoping I can maybe make small...

    Well, he has few. He worked maybe 10 years in a full-time job total, and most were minimum-wage retail jobs. He spent a number of years not working at all, supported by his mother, and then he moved...

    What do you mean, TT?

    I think the plan is to divest our house in NJ and during that time figure out what to do--my preference is to get a short-term winter rental somewhere in NJ for 4 months.
