No matter what I see.... I know for a fact that I will make it. I do not like to know nor see the future. Let it arrive at its own pace.

I would love to travel into a time where there was little technology. Of course into the future would be fascinating but it holds less of an attraction.

There are so many key turning points in history that I would love to have witnessed. It is also an ethical question, would you change things if you could? (Kill Hitler? Save JFK? Introduce aspirin?)

Just long enough to put about $10,000 each into Microsoft, Apple, and Google stock, and maybe $10,000 worth of Bitcoin when it was less than a penny each. This would solve my retirement concerns!

only if I can change the mistakes I have made. As the prayer of confession says I am sorry for what I have done, but I am especially sorry for what I have failed to do. My values were there but time.

I am not a person who pretends to have zero regrets. There are some things I’d definitely do differently, and then some experiences I’d give my right arm to have once again.

Either would be nice, but it depends mainly on how long you going to stay. Since it all boils down to money.

I learned my lesson the hard way. I no longer have ANY carry-over credit balances. Zero debt.

I got rid of all our credit cards years ago. The interest is ridiculous! You end up paying a lot more in interest than the the cost of the items purchased!

Why buy more than I can pay for? The federal government does that, which causes inflation.
