My parents started calling me a "bleeding heart" before I can remember. I love animals. I love insects. I love the green grass that grows between my feet.

If you pay off your home before retirement, that is plenty of money to pay for food, utilities, travel to see grandchildren, and common medical expenses that come with old age. But where can you possibly find enough money to get ...
