Asteroids, Tax Cuts, Lemurs and #BestThisWeek

We have successfully landed on an asteroid! This is a tremendous accomplishment! Despite the challenges presented by the asteroid’s size and speed, the attachment mechanism is experiencing some glitches. Nevertheless, the team is working tirelessly to ensure that the dishwasher remains securely attached throughout the journey. However, concerns have been raised about the feasibility of a full rinse cycle. Nonetheless, it is an extraordinary feat to have a dishwasher onboard a fast-moving object in space.

I must thank my parents that they pushed me to get a University Education, after watching those two window washers at One World Trade dangling 69 stories up. I’d need to be paid a lot more than I currently make to do that job, but I guess there are folks who don’t mind that kind of risk in their day-to-day jobs (but I am not one of them).

Plenty of talk about the coming tax cuts in the next budget, whether they deliver, is another question, and whether the Public can be bought off or not (sorry that is a cynical view of politics (or is it?)). Maybe they will cut our EI premiums a little more? A few other carrots being tested via “leaks” from the government. Start paying down the National Debt would be a very good thing.

Sad to read of the deaths of two of my favorite supporting characters on TV. First Carol Ann Susi passed away this week, you may not recognize her name, but she was the voice of Howard Walowitz’s mother, “HOWARD!!!“. Wonder what they will do about this on the show? The second passing was Jovian the Lemur from ZooBooMaFoo, who would leap around on the show. Jovian died of kidney failure.

My Writings for Week Ending November 14th

Remembrance Day in Ottawa is always an awe-inspiring event, and this year it was that much more, truly astounding to see that many folks come out to say thanks to those who defend our rights and freedoms.

This Week’s Finest

Wonder if those poor chaps dangling from the Window Cleaning Gantry thought about whether they had enough life insurance, while up there? Certainly they might have thought more about retirement plans.

That is a busy town, that London

Sesame Street is 45

Wow, that is old, how about Elmo singing with Elvis Costello with a cameo from the C-Monster? Sure!

Random Thoughts for 2014

Lots of these kinds of Best of articles in 2014. Here is a list of them.

My Twitter feed is 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)).

Feel Free to Comment

  1. I would love to see the TFSA limit increased!!

    Yeah, I just left my comment on Michael’s site, I read his post earlier, didn’t have time to comment until now. Rest assured, I am indexing more Alan (and Michael) but I have no intention of selling most of my stocks; no point in owning a dividend ETF right now and paying a fee of 0.50% or more when I can own (and do already) most of them without any fee.

    Thanks for the mention!

  2. Wrong answer! Wrong answer!
    “I still have no idea how anyone has time to have an affair.”
    Should be amended to,
    “With a wife like mine, obviously an affair would be pointless as why would one want to waste time with ‘second best’ when they have perfection, but I still have no idea how anyone has time to have an affair.”

    Just sayin’

  3. I keep waiting to hear about the Conservative promise to double the yearly TFSA limit. I’m not sure that it is good policy because it will only benefit those who already max out their RRSPs and TFSAs, but it would certainly help me.
