May 15. Welcome , to our weekly newsletter.  This week we explore the conflicting thoughts we experienced during a visit to a retirement town that isn't exactly perfect now, but has the potential to be pretty good. As in -  are you willing to roll the dice by getting in early and beating the rush?

Don't forget to give us your "best place to retire" in the Comments section of "Time to Share".  We'll be reporting on what you all said in next week's newsletter.

We've heard it a lot: "Where are some places I can live a nice lifestyle that hasn't already gotten too expensive"? Here in this article we explore the pros and cons of moving to a community that has great bones and fantastic potential... but still has troubling issues.  The impetus was a visit last weekend to Elizabeth City, NC (photo).

Member Question - I Get the Daily Emails, But What's My User Name
Q: I currently get the daily emails from Top Retirements. Can you send me my "user name" and "password" as I have forgotten how I signed up with you.

A: It's a little confusing: our newsletter subscriptions are separate from the site registration. So when you sign up for one of the newsletters it doesn't mean you are registered. You don't need to be registered to make a Comment in the Blog. You can see everything at Topretirements without being registered. But Registration is required to post in the Forum, or to suggest changes in a City review. If you are registered and you forget your user name or password, use the Help link at the bottom of all pages on the website.
