Peter covered a lot of ground, including: Tricks for navigating the consolidating airline industry (conduct research on line but don't give up on the phone yet); why travel agents are on the rise again; why now is a great time to book a cruise; what you need to know about traveling to Cuba; why you should NOT cancel your trip to Greece; and what you need to know about trip cancellation insurance.

We also covered a great question from Jessica, who is looking to make a career change from medicine to financial services. The financial planning industry is poised to grow, so she should check out the CFP Career Center!

Kris wanted to know the basics on Social Security for married couples and Carol weighed in on the Windfall Elimination Provision and the Government Pension Offset.
