Seems the job news isn’t as bad as prognosticated down south, and things are plugging along nicely in Canada (but more about that tomorrow). The Stock Markets have pronounced loudly to the politicians, Debt Ceilings be damned, let’s get some folks employed, and hopefully our elected officials will listen (and act), but only time will tell whether they did the right thing.
This week on the Tweety I resurrected some real old gems from my archive of thousands of posts which I feel still are topical in this day and age:
- I did a quick jab about whether Sunday was a Day of Rest, which it is but only for a few of us, anymore.
- Given Monday was a holiday around my parts I wished Happy Civic Holiday Ontario, for the holiday with no name.
- Back 5 years ago the only way you could do Income Splitting was using a spousal RRSP, but things have changed since then.
- Another shorty came up about Financial Planning: Positive Reinforcement, I was in the mood to get out a few at once.
- Four years ago One in Seven of us was a Senior Citizen, but my guess is that ratio is even smaller now, with the aging of our population.
- Another quick technology tip is to Scan Those Bills, digital images are good for long term storage, but keep paper for the first little while.
- I cringe whenever I read my Worst Financial Advice Ever Given, and it explains why I don’t give out advice any more.
- I got the same advice from my Dad, so I passed on Advice to Future University Students, which may not be academic, but it is still useful.
- Finally a short video from the National Film Board about Greed and Gluttony, two fun subjects.
