Down south our American Cousins are preparing to fire off more explosive devices (in the name of celebration) than the Canadian Armed forces fired off in anger over the past year, but I digress. The 4th of July is such a wonderfully patriotic holiday, which one day I hope to enjoy while in the U.S., because I really feel like I am missing something special.
This past week, I wandered through my archives to find some tweets to show folks that a lot of times my current writing is really only a cheap rip off of my original writing (not really, I like to think of it as a more polished version of my older stuff, but again, I digress).
- Given I was hosting yet another version of the Carnival of Personal Finance on Monday, I felt it was well within my rights to tweet about the Carnival of Personal Finance #192: The Family Day Edition which actually got me into a great deal of hot water in the financial blogging world
- After finding out more about how my house was built, by doing some more renovating, I found one of my oldie favorites Don’t buy the Model Home, and I stand by the statements in that post as well.
- A recurring theme of mine is to make sure that you plan for the worst, because life is unpredictable as I pointed out in Disaster planning or the Worst Case Scenario, and I continue to pound that point home, you must plan for bad things, or you’ll really end up in the soup.
- In May of 2010 CPI actually dropped in May 2010, which is a far cry from this year, with Gas prices sky rocketing.
Enjoy your Sunday.
