Random Thoughts: Spooky Finances

in Random Thoughts

All Hallows Eve comes on Monday (happy birthday to my favorite witch too), and that must mean more financial hobgoblins and silliness? We shall see, yet another deal for European debt which seems to be causing some optimism in financial circles, but then again, haven’t we been down this dark and spooky lane before (seems like something out of yet another Friday the 13th movie), Don’t go into that dark room!!!!!

November is coming soon, and that means one more month until Christmas, and all I can say is Holy Holly! that came up fast on me. Luckily my family isn’t worried about material possesions or the exchange of gifts, they simply enjoy the fraternization and family bliss, and of course the Ca$h (see what I did there, I changed it around at the end).

All my Quebecois brethren must be happy that they are getting 3 more MP’s with the new distribution rules and shake up. More Quebec representation in parliament, that will spice up the political scene that much more. If we could just get Rob Ford in there too, it would be better than Cirque du Soleil!

Lots of interesting news about Inflation and the Bank of Canada’s hope that this is simply a blip and prices will be going back down (I am not that optimistic):

And thanks to those who added me on Twitter I am now over 900 folks who follow me, wow!

Haloween may be coming soon, but there are no ghosts and ghoulies written about this week:

Carnivals this Week

I did make it into a few carnivals this week too:

Remember my RSS feed is available too, for those who enjoy reading without looking at my crappy page lay out, and I have added an RSS Comment Feed as well.

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 bottom 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?!?).

    Thanks so much for mentioning Marie’s list this week. It’s amazing isn’t it. I too love vinegar and use it for a ton of things.

    Hope you have a great weekend.
