Money, do you always find yourself thinking about it recently

I know there are more important things in life than money, but as we get a bit older do we seem to think about the security of money or we just take life as it is and don't get all stressed out about it.

For me, at the moment I really want to retire, but what would I do if my wallet is empty! Oh, well! Hop on my bike and ride it all day.

Always. I look to playing music full-time while enjoying an early retirement if it ever happens.

I recently heard that an average Aussie needs about $400,000 in savings and about $1.5 mill in superannuation to live a nice comfortable life.

I have like $200 in the bank and earn enough through lessons to live week to week, but he new of how much I need to retire just blew me away.

I cant see myself still teaching or gigging at 80.

The older I get, the less I think about it actually. But I'm in a comfortable position with a job that pays well and a good retirement plan. Our house will be paid off in a couple of years.
The price I pay for that kind of security: some weeks I work 50 to 60 hours in my job ... but on average it's ok, because there are other weeks with only 30 hours.

I could do lessons while your at work Stefan, OR you and brother Randy can enter a bidding war to adopt me!

I'm good around the house, know how iron, wash, cook and play multi instruments.

Start the bidding at 1 peanut.

I did read something about the Chinese nuts not being too good to eat as they had some chemical in them that caused cancer.

Nice. From 6 years on, all my son wanted to do was to learn the drums. He's 11 now, has been playing for 4 years (and one year of keyboard in-between).

That's cool! My son is great at the bass as well as the horn instruments. I wish that he would play like he means it. He is a natural but lazy due to electronic gaming. He could really do wonders if he did.
