Harold Schlumberg (Making a difference)

Wise Words

As we get older we sometimes begin to doubt our ability to "make a

difference" in the world. It is at these times that our hopes are boosted

by the remarkable achievements of other "seniors" who have found the

courage to take on challenges that would make many of us wither.

Harold Schlumberg is such a person ---

A quote from Harold ---

"I've often been asked, 'What do you old folks do now that you're retired?'

Well...I'm fortunate to have a chemical engineering background and one of

the things I enjoy most is converting beer, wine and whisky into urine. I do it every day and I really enjoy it."

How cool is that to be able to do something you enjoy, and do it each and everyday!  Maybe I need to re-think retirement as being boring, and non productive. Of course luckily he has a degree in his chosen retirement activity...hmm wonder how long it would take me to get mine?
