    Reco Village
    In the US much talk can be heard about the Baby Boomer's beginning to collect S.S.
    The ideal is that all of us retire from whatever it is we do and begin to live comfortable, interesting and rewarding years away from the 9 to 5. For many this may be far from reality. To think of living in today's world on S.S. alone is a joke to keep it light. Within this wave are many who are closet non savers, getting along OK in a work-a-day world, having to let tomorrow be. We will have to come up with something.
    So we were talking about Reco Villages. A place set up as a commune (for lack of a better word) where the participants build, work and live as a not for profit community, as close as possible to self sustaining. With meager income, limited labor at hopefully chosen tasks, management, upkeep, power and food supplied by residents actually enjoying golden years might be possible. Or we could let our government take care of it all.
    Am I dreaming?
