Back to school, for most folks this week (although many folks already were back last week). The stores are abuzz with folks looking for loose leaf paper, HB Pencils, and the coolest new Beatles Pencil Case (OK maybe I am a little out of touch on this new generation).
I welcome Tim Burger King or Burger Horton’s or whatever the new Canadian Super Fast Food monster will call itself. I am astounded to hear that it is cheaper to run a business in Canada than it is to run in the U.S., but if we become a Tax Haven for our rich cousins down south, then so be it! Maybe they will bring back the Dutchie !
Since I grew past 6 feet tall, I have never really fit into any mass transit situation (sitting at least), so when I saw the stories about the Knee Defender I was tickled pink to hear someone was thinking about we tall folks and how we don’t really fit in the tight spaces created in Airplanes. Is it rude to stop the person in front of you from reclining into your lap on an airplane? Maybe, but speaking as someone who has been at the mercy of airlines for many years (space wise) I would buy one of these in a heartbeat if I was traveling for more than an hour on an airplane.
I have been fiddling around with Emojis and where they might fit best. From what I can tell they can be useful for things like the Twitter machine, but in day to day posting I can’t see a great need to have this ☠ or 🚾 in most things I write, however, in social media I do see a use for things like : 💳 💸💰 or 💱 where you are looking for quick and shorter messages. If you find them annoying, it is me simply trying to get the message to you faster and more graphically.
My Writings for Week Ending September 5th
A full week of writing this week for the first time in a few months, seems I had a lot to say this week.
- It is important to always celebrate the workers control of the means of production and thus we had Happy Labour Day 2014
- Will I ever stop writing about RESPs? Not for a few more years that is for sure, and this year we have RESP Another Year of Fun, where you must remember that FUn starts with F and U
- I am relatively docile and paranoid about investing thus I keep with relatively safe(r) investment portfolios, but I never thought my Portfolio was Too Conservative
- In God We Trust is on the American dollar, but remember everyone else you should ask for proof, and that is at the core of Always Follow Up (Financially).
