  1. Hi guys! I am going to take your advice about my job. I don’t give a flying fig about those people causing me anxiety (my Valium helps too!) and plot my road to retirement (I am 50). Okay 54 . Literally I listen to your podcast every day (stalker)😂 I am also trying to figure out a 2nd faze like you Dan. Let us know how it goes please! Love you guys! Nancy GILCHRIST (in Washington)

    Anybody who doesn’t know what it’s like to have a decent standard of living would choose to play for LIV golf. I don’t blame them a bit! The self righteous ones are the ones who don’t have to choose between a new pair of shoes or food like I have had to. They need to do what is right for their families.
