I should be happy, for I'm doing what I always wanted to do, but I do not make any money. I worked at a job that was decent, and then worked out an early retirement. Being a young retiree (51), I tried many part time, temporary jobs for a number of years. It was fun to try different fields. At some point, I discovered Wikipedia and NASA's amateur programs. I've had a passion for astronomy all my life. For over ten years, I've used NASA satellites that are orbiting Mars to suggest targets for NASA to aim at. I've received thousands of photos. I was one of the first people in the world to see these landscapes. For me it is about the most exciting thing I can imagine. I post and write up captions for the best of my images on Wikipedia. So I'm one of the Mars nuts who are writing an encyclopedia of all knowledge discovered on Mars. There are a lot of people today who are excited about humans colonizing Mars. I feel I'm doing my part.

My life is not for most Americans, as while I have enough money to get by, I'm not rich. We only have 1 car and only eat out a few days each week.

Hi, Jims,

I think you're plenty rich. And I eat out less than you do.

I'm back! Its been several years. I am doing what I love to do. The income is sporadic. But, that's what's so fun about a roller coaster. It may be too scary for some of you. Weekly income is forfeited. If you have the fortitude -- take the challenge. Sometimes its better to stay in your spot. Find the joy in it. Improve or change your recreational time. That might be a good start. :D
