Repurpose Your Career: A Practical Guide for the 2nd Half of Life, 3rd edition is available on Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, Powells.com, BooksaMillion.com, and many other fine online retailers. I am working on the audio version of the book but this is taking longer than planned. Look for this to be out in February of 2020.
Next week, I interview Joanne Webb, author of Desire the Skies, the First Book Every Aspiring Flight Attendant Needs to Read. Many more of my readers than I ever expected want to be a flight attendant, and yes, it is possible.

Marc’s wife signed up Medicare Part A and B but not D. The signup process was done via the U.S. Embassy in Guadalajara Mexico. We learned everything from the Medicare for Dummies Book. Marc spent about $1000 on his wife’s medication. Marc’s wife will sign up for Skymed for emergency transport in the case of a medical emergency.
Change Season – Expat in Mexico
Festival season is extensive. The major festival in Ajijic is FIESTAS DE SAN ANDRÉS. We went to Guanajuato for the week of the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday. We took the ETN bus line to Guanajuato from Guadalajara and paid for the tickets at OXXO.
