Random Thoughts: Good Night Col. Potter


With the year coming to a close we bid farewell to another important figure (at least in my life), Harry Morgan who played Col. Potter on M*A*S*H died at 96 on Wednesday. I still watch reruns of M*A*S*H and I really enjoy them (yes I have seen them all almost a hundred times). I think we all need a Col. Potter in our financial lives to give us tough but fair advice on how to take care of our money.

This year also looks like it might end with yet another impasse in the American Government about taxes and budgets which could cause a lot more silliness and tom foolery, with all sides blaming each other about why they are in the situation that they find themselves in. With that and the European theatre still zesty and spicy (financially at least) could make for a very interesting 2012.

Not a lot of spicy topics from me this week, but still some interesting posts, none the less:

And thanks to those who added me on Twitter I am now over 960 folks who follow me, wow!

With the Euro teetering on the brink of demise but Christmas in the air, it means a diverse cross section of themes from some of our favorite writers:

Thank you Harry

Remember my RSS feed is available too, for those who enjoy reading without looking at my crappy page lay out, and I have added an RSS Comment Feed as well.

Have a look at my micro-blog on Twitter, where you can see a whole plethora of good articles and pithy comments by me as well. Twitter feed where I re-tweet many great articles by some of my featured writers (and make the occasional odd or off colour commentary on life (in 140 characters or less)). I am also on Digg as Big Cajun Man, on reddit, Tumblr and other Social Media sites (look for the BigCajunMan userid) as well.

If you have social media accounts, don’t forget to vote for my posts (see the nifty dashboard on the bottom of each article, where you can cast your votes). As they say in Quebec, vote early and vote often!

This site is iPhone Friendly (and Android , iPod Touch and iPad Friendly), enjoy it on the go, in a readable format for the device. If you are reading with an iPhone or Android device, drop me a comment and tell me if this needs any improvements. This site is also in the Kindle US Blog list, if you are interested, not available in Canada yet (because no Blogs are available in Canada on a Kindle?!?).

Remember

“Just remember, there’s a right way and a wrong way to do everything and the wrong way is to keep trying to make everybody else do it the right way. ”
