Re: Reverse Mortages

I generally have a positive impression of reverse mortgages (not that I'm an expert). I hope to not have to have one, because we've got fairly good retirement plans in place. But for seniors who don't have many resources, it seems to me to give them a viable way to remain independent, and there are ...

Libraries are great resources for all kinds of things, including borrowing movies. You could plan a movie night, borrow the movie, and make homemade popcorn to share with friends.
