Importance of Retirement.......hah

Thursday, January 30, 2014

As we get older we sometimes begin to doubt our ability to "make a difference" in the world.

It is at these times that our hopes are boosted by the remarkable achievements of other "seniors" who have found the courage to take on challenges that would make many of us wither.

Harold Schlumberg is such a person.

HAROLD SAYS: "I've often been asked, 'What do you do now that you're retired?
'Well...I'm fortunate to have a chemical engineering background and one of the things I enjoy most is converting beer, wine and whiskey into urine.
It's rewarding, uplifting, satisfying and fulfilling. I do it every day and I really enjoy it."

Harold is an inspiration to us all.

    I don't think Harold would be the man I would want to marry, cause I wouldn't want to be spending 3 hours every week in the hospital while he gets his kidneys checked. eva

I gave up on making the world better or making a difference. I am solely interested in making changes within my perception of the world. Now that is where it is at.
