Ran out and got quarters. I'm currently doing laundry in the laundry room in the building. Those are huge washers and dryers. I should be able to wash my comforter in them.

Need to tackle the office, but I'm not even sure where to begin.

I have my eyes on Clearwater, Florida as a possible retirement place. I wondered if there was a train from St. Pete-Clearwater to Orlando, and there is. It's even cheap, and there are cheap hotels in Orlando. Epcot, here I come if I do move down there. Disney doesn't appear to have a senior discount though. There is some sort of "Florida resident discount".

I went to look for a train to other places in Florida, and Amtrak's Web site said that there were no trains. However, I found trains from Orlando to places like Miami. So. Amtrak, your Web site is tripping out.

The washer that I used took an hour and a half to cycle up to the rinse cycle. At that point, I changed the water level from "large" to "small," and then the washer started agitating. The dryer, on the other hand, is fast and dries clothes perfectly dry, even jeans. So now I know to avoid that washer.

I thought about running out to drop some books in the charity book drop, but I've decided to stay in, and drop the books off after work tomorrow.

In poking around online info about Clearwater, I found a 55+ community ("On Top of the World") with condos that aren't too expensive. It has its own bus stop and shuttles to local shopping centers. It has a range of recreation activities, including two gyms, swimming pools, tai chi classes, exercise classes, ceramics and jewelry classes, a chorus, golf (I'd like to learn), and tennis (I'd like to learn), and clubs. Some of this stuff is at 8 AM though. No way. When I'm retired, I'm sleeping until noon every day. I'll be damned if I'd play shuffleboard or bingo though. Anyway, it's something to look into.
