'Teen Spirit': Youth, Not Wasted on the Young
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
05:19PM / Thursday, April 25, 2019

If it's true that everything has a purpose, that there are clues to our lives in all that passes before us, especially a movie like "Teen Spirit" that I'd never see if I weren't a film critic, then what's Max Minghella's tale about a young lady's angst and ambitions trying to tell me?

But indeed there were times during those fires of spring

Submitted by Edward Jones,
11:07AM / Wednesday, April 24, 2019

It's almost impossible to save too much for retirement. After all, you could spend two, or even three, decades as a retiree. And retirement is not cheap – even if you maintain a relatively modest lifestyle, some of your expenses, especially those involving health care, may continue to rise over the years. Consequently, you will need several sources of reliable income – one of which might be a fixed annuity.

Fixed annuities are essentially contracts between investors and insurance companies. When you purchase a fixed annuity, the insurer will guarantee the principal and a minimum rate of interest. This means the money you invest in a fixed annuity is designed never to drop
