So my concerns that if I put my real face on my Social Media accounts were just paranoia on my part, as no one on the streets of Ottawa, or maybe folks are afraid to talk to me, who knows?
Glad to see that Toronto politics hasn’t turned into a media circus, and a voice of reason has entered the discussion: the Iron Sheik. I have always enjoyed the Iron Sheik’s antics, maybe he can solve this whole situation by putting it all into his infamous Camel Clutch. Really must figure out what font sarcasm should use.
Monday is Remembrance Day, just remember to take a few moments to say Thanks to the folks who serve and have served in our military (and paid the ultimate price).
This week I include another Word Puzzle for you to solve, the answer is at the bottom of this post:
My Weekly Recap

|I took another day off? What the heck is going on here?|
Choice Picks for the Week
On Monday I have the day off, like all Civil Servants, which signals the beginning of the Christmas orgy of spending (in Ottawa at least), however, we shall also remember:
- Mark at My Own Advisor brings us Name Changes Needed to Canadian Financial Accounts which is a valiant attempt to clarify things for folks, but I suspect these changes won’t happen any time soon.
- Mark from the Blunt Bean Counter for some reason thinks Dream Job by Richard Peddie - Book Review and Giveaway is an OK book, but how could running the “Blue Team Enterprises” be a dream job?
- Gail Vaz-Oxlade implores you to Set-Up Online Banking right now, and if you haven’t what century are you living in?
- Larry MacDonald points out 10 reasons for not expanding the Canada Pension Plan not the least of which is it may not even be needed.
- Robb from Boomer & Echo wonders Would You Buy Your Groceries Online? I might, however, I doubt I would order Milk, and they had better deliver.
- Freakonomics brings us a topic near and dear to my knees Fighting Over the Width of Airline Seats, OK, not my knees but length standardization might be nice too.
- If you were thinking of becoming a Poker Pro Michael James gives us the World Series of Poker Main Event Losses, don’t play poker with Michael James.
- Benefits Canada bucks trends and states No Retirement Crisis: Actuaries so what are we all worried about then?

- Ever wonder when is The Best Time to Drink Coffee ? NeuroscienceDC gives us the scientific study of when, for me it’s when I need it dammit!!!
- The Canadian Couch Potato brings us Looking for Value in Canadian Equity ETFs although he does “dumb it down” for we folk who aren’t as technical.
- Should you always tip at bars asks Preet, depending on the country you are in, you need to be careful.
Did you get it? It’s pretty straight forward for you financial folks:
A Big Money Mess
Those are SHORT short

In Case You Think I am Shallow
Yes I do read the Dalai Lama
Great changes start with individuals; the basis of world peace is inner peace in the hearts of individuals, something we can all work for.

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 reddit, Tumblr, Pinterest and other Social Media sites (look for the BigCajunMan userid) as well.
