Where is the summer going? Holy cow, time is flying by and August is almost upon us, you do realize that don’t you? For me this means my French training will hopefully be coming to an end and I will be returning to my office with the correct language profile for my job (all things being equal). Given I started in February it hasn’t been that long, but I do look forward to a change of scenery (although I will miss being in downtown Ottawa, a nice place to spend a summer lunchtime).
I am enjoying watching the Olympics, even though it is just the first few days. The Canadian Women’s Basketball team looked great against Russia, and the Women’s Soccer team played well as well, I hope all the Canadian athletes enjoy their Olympic experiences. I watched the feed from RDS, you’ll see stuff like Table Tennis and Judo there as well.
I have slowed down my clean up on the web site, although I have been doing a few things behind the scenes that you shouldn’t be noticing, there will be some changes very soon, depending on how much free time I actually get in August.
As for my Twitter Feed, it still has some of the best Oldie But Goodie Posts (OBG) from my archives:
- A while ago Stats Canada put out an article about workers time with families and I highlighted it in Tempus Fugit: Less Time with the Family.
- De-Cluttering Financially is important, just keeping around old bonds and investments is something you should really look into.
- With Tim Horton’s Savings plan (which was one of my first posts) I try to point out how much money you can spend on your daily double-double.
- Many of the new high protein low carb diets come with an expense as I pointed out in Low Carb - High Price.
- Old School Debt Thinking underlines my thinking that DEBT SUCKS, not sure if I have made that point enough yet.
- In a lot of ways I have Become My Mother, which has a funky picture showing some of the old tricks I still do.
All in all an interesting week of old but still relevant posts.
You have heard me talk about old computers and how I used to work on them, but this video about NASA computers just makes me smile:
