I was astonished at the response I had to my posting Do you have saving questions? and I thank all of those who posted about their financial situations. I will not comment on them specifically, but I am astounded by the responses. That piece started as something completely different and then I realized how many questions I had written and wondered if I could make an entire post of questions.
New Year Random Thinking
Naturally, other intriguing posts by my Financial Blogging brethren are well worth a few minutes to peruse in your spare time:
- Keeping with New Year’s Resolutions, Gail Vaz-Oxlade asks the tough question Why are You in Debt?, in fact this is the first of a group of posts. Don’t expect to be treated gently. Gail asks the tough questions.
- Michael James points his razor-sharp analytical skills at himself and finds more More Pointless Frugality, but who really thinks about their furnace humidifier that much?
- The Canadian Capitalist bites back at a Shark, by writing a Note to Kevin O’Leary: Don’t confuse GDP Growth with Stock Market Returns hopefuly Mr. O’Leary won’t bite back!
- Larry MacDonald talks about a popular topic The Sandwich Generation which talks about how my generation gets to worry about everyone, not just our kids, oh joy. Jon Chevreau wrote about this as well.
- Preet at WhereDoesAllMyMoneyGo.com shows his TechnoGeek side by pointing out that The New Google Phone is NOT a game Changer, he loves those gadgets.
Has the New Year already turned sour on you? That’s OK, the Lemon crop is about to fail in Florida, so you can’t make Lemon-aid either…

i own an AV Receiver that is made by Pioneer and it is really great and inexpensive*`.
My grandmother used to make beautiful smoors, and the coq crowed three times.
Thanks for the link. Yes, I’ve re-engaged my gadgety side lately. Now I’m on the hunt for an AV receiver with high definition audio, and Faroudja video processing. There’s an Onkyo with THX certification, but it’s around $1,000 and I really don’t NEED that… do I?
But wow wa wee wa, playing hi def video games on a 52″ TV is lots of fun!!!
I repeat GEEK! 😀
Thanks for the mention. I think about just about everything more than most people think is healthy 🙂
