Random Thoughts: Two More Sleeps ’til Christmas


Yes, it all comes to a tumultuous end on Sunday, presents strewn around the room, food piled high and people swearing they can’t eat another bite (and then do). Christmas is a magical time for many folks, but remember to give some money to Charity as well, because there are a lot of folks not as lucky as we are, and they need our help.

Was there a Santa Rally on the Markets? Kind of, but then again, everything is so screwed up, I can’t tell which way is up either.

Hope we all enjoyed the shortest day of the year yesterday (at least in the Northern Hemisphere), days will start getting longer now, which is great, given how bleak and dark it has been in November.

Note:Even we diligent Financial Bloggers take some time off on the holidays, but fear not, I will have posts going up (I hope) over the holidays, but it may be the infamous Top 20 Posts of 2011, stay tuned, and enjoy the festivities with your family and friends.

Weekly Recap

The Winter Solstice didn’t get mentioned this week, but there were a few interesting posts from me:

And thanks to those who added me on Twitter I am now over 960 folks who follow me, wow!. Check out my facebook page as well.

That is Really Our Christmas Tree for 2011

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 alook 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

β€œFor unto you is born this day in the city of David A Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. ”
