These days everyone seems to wants to have a hand in your pocket.  I’am certainly not accusing anyone of anything, but changing financial advisers  in mid stream seems like the wrong thing to do.  We have been with TIAA-Creff for years, and although their return of an average of 4% seems rather paltry it has been consistent over the years, and we rely on it along with our SS.  I am 75, my wife is 66.  We could do well if things stayed the same, but that’s unlikely I know.  We also have roughly $50,000 in PM and in a mining mutual fund (Toqueville).  We have a huge garden, own our house, and live rather simply,  but with climate change, even here in Maine, crops do not behave like they used to.  We need to do more with high tunnels, seasonal extension and neighborhood exchanges.   Would love to hear from anyone advice on what else we could do.  Thanks so very much!   Ron
