I have just moved from MN to UT, and I'm retired now. I am 40, and still have enough energy for another project or two that is demanding. The one that I chose and am most interested in is homeschooling my 4 kids. My wife is working right now, but she could retire any time she liked.

Asking my dad about retirement, he says "I don't know how I ever had enough time for work!!!" And so he is following the "stay busy" plan too. I've found myself in the same boat. I have soooo much to do, I can't believe I ever had time to do anything else. I am a hyper organized person, but trying to back off and find some balance. I allow the kids to choose things off the planned path from time to time, but I normally pack the day until fairly late at night.

I'm lacking many of the tricks and knowledge people have in using computers and the internet well and wisely, so I am looking in places like this for help.

That's me as of today.

Welcome to the BC forums OHH

"Home schooling"... Often the teacher learns more than the students.

The BC forums are a great place to gain some computer related knowledge.
Peruse the site, ask all the questions you have, and share your experiences with us also as you are able to do so.

"Retired at 40"... I've retired about 3 times now and yet, still find a new project or challenge to look forward to.

Here's hoping you become a regular at the BC.

The only easy day was yesterday.

A good place to start learning about computers and computer security is in the Tutorial section of BC.
