Sometimes we see a list of best places to retire and all we can do is shake our heads. How did they come up with those choices? In this article we compare and contrast 2 recent rankings of states with our own lists at Topretirements. Spoiler: there wasn't all that much in common!
This might be a good time to explore Augusta, home of the Masters tournament, which so many of us will be watching this weekend. The town has had its ups and downs, but its revitalized Riverwalk project has made a big difference. Just across the river is North Augusta, SC.
Talk about second careers, Mrs. Topretirements's 7th mystery in her "Key West Food Critic" series hits the bookstores today.  This cozy mystery takes place in a PG version of the Conch Republic's infamous Fantasy Fest.
