The Older Americans Act (OAA) funds services that help keep older adults healthy and independent, and help them age at home.
In 1965, OAA was set-up to fund services like meal delivery, job training, senior citizen centers, caregiver support, transportation, healthy living programs, and a bunch’a other good stuff… Older American Act Reenactment
OAA expired in 2011. This fall The Older Americans Act (OAA) is coming up before congress for re-authorization. If Congress doesn’t OK it this session, they’ll have to restart the whole damn process next year.
And, the upcoming congressional elections could bring into power newly elected politicians not as supportive to older Americans as is the setting congress…

Retirement Is The Best Time Of Your Life:
If your financial house is in order, retirement could be the most fun you’ve ever had. Other than your spouse and kids, no boss to keep happy. No deadlines to meet. No back-stabbing coworkers to watch out for. No rush hour traffic.
Retirement is like a permanent school summer vacation. you’re free to roam about, or laze around. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination. (and, your bank account, of course)

This Old Dude Should Run For President:
Tampa Bay Times, 4-12-2014:
From 2002 to 2014, Paul Stenstrom, 62, lived in his Palm Harbor, FL, home without paying one cent of his $1,836 monthly mortgage bill. (real nice area)
How he get away with it?
Old Paul exercised the federal bankruptcy law that forces foreclosing creditors to back off once a debtor files for protection. To keep the law off his back, he filed 18 separate petitions during the time he lived there rent free.
Earlier this year, a judge finally cut him off, no more petitions. But wait. he’s not finished with his master scheme.
Because the house’s price has dropped due to the foreclosure, old Paul reportedly said he was considering buying the house back at it’s a good deal.
Yeah, walk on Mr. Stenstrom!
