Hockey before turkey? What the heck is going on around here? The Hockey Season has already started, the games are on Rogers, and it isn’t even Thanksgiving yet? This is a very confusing time for a simple Big Cajun Man like me. What sport to watch? CFL or NFL Football? Baseball Playoffs? Hockey ? Lacrosse ? UFC? WWE? Accountant Death Cell Matches ? Nude Actuarial Hopscotch? Lawn Bowling ? Urban Tidily Winks ? So many choices.
Thanksgiving weekend, a time for all of us to celebrate the bountiful harvest, and our families, and slaughter as many turkeys as possible.
The leaves are changing colours (the Leafs are still blue, happily for the Blunt Bean Counter), and we get to enjoy Mother Natures own fireworks display of amazing colours this weekend as well.
Luckily Air Canada can put a damper on all of this, by imposing a tariff on carry on luggage, thus causing people to be even weirder while traveling. Wait until you are sitting next to a family traveling, where each of them are wearing 4 change of clothing (one on top of the other) on the plane, that is going to make for a very fun time. I even have a new name for this new Canadian cultural anomaly, layer packing™ (you heard it here first).
Canadian Blood Services, really needs donors, if you haven’t given lately, time to drop by, the blood supply is dangerously low!
My Writings for Week Ending October 10th
Turkeys have died by the hundreds of thousands for you to enjoy a lovely turkey dinner, some would view this carnage as barbaric, I have no such qualms with this aviary genocide.
- Are spousal RRSPs really still needed, I asked that question with Pensions and Spousal RRSPs, but I also forget to factor in the TFSA and how it changes things as well.
- I read over a few of my old Nortel lay off posts and came up with Nortel : What is Left, after reading about two bankruptcy judges holding the fate of a lot of money in their hands.
- Does the government really hate Single Income Families? That’s a heavy-handed statement, however, Splitting Income for Single Income Families could be a good thing, for some families.
- Rob Carrick mentioned my RESP from Start to Spend in his latest Carrick on Money, nice reader bump for that.
