When your mom you had a really it really scary situation what happened there. You know with my family. Unfortunately the strokes are pretty common foreign and my dad -- is 67. Died from -- actually his chairman his heart surgery in this surgery went. Wrong so this very room died from a massive stroke and -- is only 67 a -- time in my brother Jim. About five years ago -- 59. Had a massive stroke this well. In his Jimmie has a Ph.D. in education. He works for the fire institute in Illinois and wrote numerous manuals on parent put -- fighters and for the fire department what have you and Jim was actually up from Wisconsin you gonna do some ice fishing in my mother Russia from -- laying next to the -- -- upstairs and chewing up the -- them in their stability -- a massive stroke risk completely paralyzed on the right side -- to this day whose rights are -- still paralyzed which has been coming up from six shooters. And can really only say -- -- tour through words and -- -- that -- And this is an individual donors to QX stream we educated in. This just new sister heard my -- reduced. And unbelievably. To be in -- find him yeah. Then over this last week or I don't know what happened last weekend roses. My brother called in my mother had a massive stroke. Hands. Mom's -- completely paralyzed turn on the right side fortunately she can talk. So there's hope there -- -- with therapy and what have you that you real live you don't get out of rehab and believe me and to get home. Would Jermaine what happened was as you spent a year and a nursing home and that fortunately his wife who's able to take Carol -- With mom of course parents deceased oh my brother have salute most parents -- real close to our. So he's able to help -- but again she's gonna need nursing care and what have you until she recuperates completely. And the cost is just there astronomical. Who. For mosque here right now this is without any extra -- -- how's this for her room and board and their various therapies 250 dollars and only tennis. So it's 7500 dollars a month then she takes an accelerant or anything else to figure that's all added on to the bill. So the cost is just tremendous history and they're truly devastated and wants the states and our pursuit and you start having all these expenses up and saying nothing about the expenses of coming home being able to have there. Her house renovated to be able so that you can live in an appropriately. Hopefully it comes to that. But it's just two terms terribly expensive -- so. When it comes down to a you really only get in the open three choices and so how to pay for us in the room one of courses you spending on your savings and hoping that your savings is enough to have. Take care of these expenses and tell your balloon take care of yourself -- -- tell you know. Yeah and then of course the second thing is which is devastating to them happened so many times is that. People end up wiping altered states spending everything down so they can get on medical assistance. I don't think anybody really wants to go on and on medical assistance or spend the remaining days of their life in nursing home turned. And the third thing of course whose long term care insurance or some form of insurance to help take care of this burden. And at least this way you can have the ability either choose facilities and choose to care whether it be at home -- What we're might be am ambivalent haven't. You know that expense from somebody else is American are your Barack. So it's really extremely new and important to to think about these areas. It's not it's an area that no one really wants to talk about the -- or talk or gone to a nursing home or needing skilled care convalescent care. It never -- it's good he bring it up and am as tragic as this you know as Sudan.

You know it is Father's Day week in and aren't dads are famous for having all sorts of guidance for how we should handle our money. Here is Warren Buffett's son Howard talking about the influence he had on his life. The opportunity. To sit with someone over fifteen year period and eavesdrop on telephone call balls and I error are all these things of the conversations and and watched how he thought and now -- analyze and what were the things that were important in a decision and and I learned some that mean I learned. There it is much better to make a decision. Quickly. And I -- well informed decision but quickly -- not make a decision. Steve do you have any stories so about words of wisdom make your dad shared with you. Yes it not so much you are on the finance side as far as the investment. But on the perch inside and that would basically say that if you don't have the money to buy it to -- -- And they did that use credit cards. I don't think mommy actually had a crash occurred and so. Her with a 1015 years ago and she did some traveling and what have you needed a credit -- through their plane tickets from one area but. Other than that I know we never use credit cards to delay payments sort of says so. Dad's advice was real basically real straightforward and that's what if you don't have the money you don't buy it. It's pretty much that simple so it's kept me out of trouble for funeral last sixty years show Arthur was pretty good advice. Really minimized for all of us to this day. -- USA -- many are aiming for one million dollars as they are number. The ability investments -- Thompson recently weighed in on CNBC on the million dollar question ten million dollars it could be enough it might not be enough -- really depends upon. So what you anticipate your retirement to be amateur earnings. Before retirement. It's seem crazy to ask Steve but as a million dollars announced. Throughout the million dollars of course does not by -- used to. The problem worth two million dollar figure sort of -- is that. We used to use a 4% ratio meaning that -- -- million dollars you could take 40000 dollars a year. And did you do move normal life expectancy induct me -- when it was all over. Today unfortunately the 4% rule is really thrown out the window. With the recent history returns to have more banks are -- into day. For fixed investments. With returns is what was what they are. You cannot take 40000 dollars year 4% and expect to have any money for the rest your life. And most financial people who targeted new rule today is about two point six. So and stern take you 40000 dollars you are on -- million person in his 26000 dollars a year. Now fortunately. What has happened is with the companies that I work worth. They've been expecting this and working on this problem. And also be inflation problem for the last recent years. So what we have design enables you do. This to put together income plans. That'll give us even though higher pay -- forty files from. And do a true learn through your life -- no matter how long you'll note. And also in addition of that be able to put things in their -- inflation so inherent when we should perform either from an increased allocation. Or just a -- inflation rate or use in the -- some shorts so that when inflation does happen you're gonna get an increase in Paris. Because I think everybody knows said if you look back stormy years ago you look back into the eighty's and ninety's and you see where we bought then you take that same. Hundred dollar bill today it doesn't buy you nearly as much to visited -- -- it's inflation is an important part of it as well so is a million enough. For some people yes and for others know. But the big key there is that a million doesn't -- I would used to sit up and says. And that is the key questions Steve and the bottom line is do you want -- know how much you need to play Ian -- Enjoy your retirement it starts two day with a phone call stay Easter says he can help you it's free.
