Random Thoughts: Happy Advent!

Advent is Here!

Yes, the season of hoping and waiting is finally here, for all of us to enjoy, Happy Advent. Advent is actually the start of the new year, for the Christian Church (at least some of them), so Happy New Year as well! Now you can put up your decorations and such, but don’t overdo it too much, no point in getting a Huge Ontario Hydro bill either (or only turn on your lights off-peak between 11:00 PM and 7:00 AM, which may not make you very popular with your neighbours either).

Happy Hanuka to my Jewish readers as well, enjoy 8 days of giving too (but don’t overspend)! Can someone tell me why a Harmonica is a good Hanuka gift? Music? All my Jewish friends in school lamented that they’d get yet another harmonica for Hanuka, I never understood why.

This week Happy Advent topics I covered included:

Were other financial bloggers full of the Festive Spirit of Advent/Hanuka/Festivus? Well some are, and others are a bit Grinchy, but all in all a good lot.:

Remember that I also micro-blog on Twitter, where you can see a whole plethora of good articles and pithy comments by me as well. 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 Digg as Big Cajun Man, and Reddit as well.

Also remember my RSS feed is available too, for those who enjoy reading without looking at my archaic page layout, and I have added an RSS Comment Feed as well.

Remember that this site is iPhone Friendly (and Android & iPod Touch Friendly), enjoy it on the go, in a readable format for the device. If you are reading with an iPhone or Android device, drop me a comment and tell me if this needs any improvements. This site is also in the Kindle US Blog list, if you are interested, not available in Canada yet (because no Blogs are available in Canada on a Kindle?!?).

  1. Thanks for the mention, perhaps there is good customer service still to be had in the music store, which leads to many harmonica purchases 🙂
