Random Thoughts: Sexting with Attachments

With a name like Weiner You’d Think He’d Know Better

Yes indeed, a fun week for comedians and bloggers alike with the U.S. having a new exciting political turmoil dubbed Wiener-gate, where a Congressman sent pictures of his lower abdomen via text messages, hence the title Sexting with Attachments. I love this kind of lurid story, it shows just how much we as readers love this kind of embarrassing and sensational kind of story (no matter what our political leanings). I have told my kids countless times that if you assume every picture ever taken of you will end up on the Internet (and your Grandmother will see it), you will have a safer life on line.  For complete disclosure I include one salacious image I have text’ed to my wife.

We also had a new Budget from the Government which really was just a rehash of the previous one. If you want to see the actual ramifications for you in terms of taxes and such check out CRA Budget 2011 News on line to see what new tax changes you might need to take into consideration. There are changes to Tax Credits for Kids, Study Abroad and a large number of other interesting areas. Go find out how this might change your taxes.

No I did not spend the entire week espousing about exposed willies as it were, I did talk about other more interesting topics:

  • On Saturday the PBS Newshour had an interesting short on Teaching Kids about Money which is great, and even Grover is interviewed.
  • Aside from a rogue page we had more from the throne speech that is. Lots of good karmic statements, but not a lot of substance
  • Jim Flaherty gave us a happy redux of his March budget with Budget 2011 Redux remember we had already discussed that one here.
  • What does Golf have to do with money? With You need a new set of Golf Clubs I wander around trying to show that value is not always a function of monetary cost.
  • In my area of Ottawa we are Living Without Water, which sounds a lot more dramatic, but we are banned from watering our lawns, washing our cars and the like until a water main is fixed. Many of my neighbours are vexed by this, but I am not bothered by it.

I actually enjoy all comments (even the ones that question my sanity), and will try to respond to most comments, so please feel free to comment away. For you spammers who continue to inundate me with your drivel, keep it up as well.

Other Financial Bloggers didn’t worry as much about smutty pictures and Wienergate, which is good, so all of these posts are very SFW:

I also had some submissions accepted to various carnivals, so go have a read of these as well:

A Salacious Image I Sent to My Wife

Have alook at my 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, on reddit, Tumblr and other Social Media sites (look for the BigCajunMan userid) as well.

If you have social media accounts, don’t forget to vote for my posts (see the nifty dashboard on the side of each article, where you can cast your votes). As they say in Quebec, vote early and vote often!

This site is iPhone Friendly (and Android , iPod Touch and iPad 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?!?).
