What The Heck is Going on?
I'm sure I'm not the only one that read and/or watched President Trump last night.  I am concerned about the future of America, the future of Americans.  The energy is polluted with democrats and republicans who have forgotten about why they are in Congress or the Senate.  Instead, they are acting like a bunch of children who are not getting their way and so they are going to stomp their feet and fight until they do.  Neither side giving in or up, but contributing to the chaos and stress that Americans feel on a daily basis.  Am I the only one who thinks this way?  I sure hope not!  --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/chris-ales/support

Modern Day Prophcey
Lately, I've been thinking about the future and what is in store not only for me, but for the world.  I'm still getting my feet wet when it comes to podcasting, so bear with me.  I promise I will get better.  I'm throwing this one out there because I'm sure there are people that think along the same lines as I do.  They are observing the world as it is today and drawing their own conclusions.  I would love to hear from you if that is the case to discuss the possibilities of life as we know it now and in the future. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/chris-ales/support

Goodbye 2018, Hello 2019
It's been a crazy year for me.  I lost both parents a year apart, got laid off of my full time job and turned 65.  Wow!  A bunch of changes I wasn't really prepared to face just yet, let alone the big 6-5.  But it happens; right?  I'm doing a lot of research and developing new strategies to cope with my loss and my future and I want to share those with all of you, and that includes those of us who are younger than 65.  I am going to try to stick to a schedule posting an episode a week as I work through these challenges and I'm hoping that any one who is listening may have words of wisdom to share as well so that we can begin a meaningful dialog addressing some of these issues that we will all face one day.  How many of you have faced these changes?  What have you done to address those changes?  Are you still working?  If so, how long do you plan on working?  Are you able to totally depend on Social Security Benefits?  I asked myself these questions and the sad reality is, no, Social Security Benefits will not cover my expenses.  How about you? --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/chris-ales/support

Simple Times With Our Families and Friends
We are the Baby Boomers, what happened between 1973 and 2018? How much has the world changed? The world is a scary place now and as we age out of the workforce, even scarier. I don't know about you, but enough is enough. I'm tired of the Kardashians, Trump, politics, news media sensationalizing! There's a lot to be said about the good old days. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/chris-ales/support

Medicare
My opinion regarding the yearly check-up that my doctor wanted me to do. I love the office with a four-page form that she asked I fill out. after I read the form, and started to fill out some of the information, I just couldn't stay quiet. I had to share this. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/chris-ales/support
