During a Recession – Investing Success

An Invitation From “Financial Widgets”

Home of “Trading To A Million” 

 

It is not very often that I get a chance write such an article that is so close to my heart but I wrote one for “Financial Widgets“, a new blog of mine, that incorporated a ideas I learned in high school English.  It was easier to write than I thought it was going to be.  I’ve written a few articles for “A Mind’s Diet” that were as, well…  unusual.  If you’ve been following this blog then you might find this one interesting.  

The story begins in a restaurant with a chance meeting of a previous acquaintance which illustrates that not all stock traders are soulless bastards who only have their own greed in mind.  Some of America’s greatest minds still work in the industry and are still successful.

I urge you to pop over and read this story, not for any other reason other than the enjoyment of reading something not simplified to a point where the English language is uninspired and dull.

Budgets are Sexy – Serendipitious and So-o-o-o Cool

Budgets are Sexy – Serendipitious and So-o-o-o Cool

Do you believe in fate?  Do you read your horoscope and say, “Hey!  Right on.” or something to that effect? Do you carry a lucky charm or have a “favorite” outfit for a favorite activity you must wear? Perhaps you beieve in angels? 

I’m not superstitious. However, I do believe in serendipity.  Such was a meeting of J. Money and me.

When I wrote  “National Techmark, bibomedia and spam – What an Review!” I wasn’t looking for anyone to respond to my post.  I was just doing what comes naturally to me.  I was trying to help others by writing about the incident.  J. Money wrote one of the comments.  This was the serendipity I mentioned.

I have visited his blog several times and found that it dovetails nicely with another project I’m working on.  More on that later. Right now, let me tell you about J. and his blog. 

 It was a little young when he made his comment but it has grown to become something to be envied.  Here is one of the new generation’s rising stars.  I realize that this blogger has a lot to learn from this 20-something.  By his generation’s description I’m an old fart. 

Let me tell you about J. and his blog.    It is “Budgets are Sexy“.  I was impressed enough to list it in my blog roll.  J has a light, airy, personable style to his writing.  He’s blog is easy to read, yet informative.  It is speaks to the heart of the thing that I try to accomplish; help people help themselves. 

Do you spend money?  Do you have money questions?  Do you want to save money, or get out of debt?  Do you think that money is evil or that greed is uncool?  Budgets are Sexy and J’s collection of corresponding links will help set your mind straight.  

He has generously listed my “A Mind’s Diet” in his blog roll.  I didn’t ask him to do this but that goes back to that other project I have been working on.  I did put his up on mine.  That was something I do not do very lightly.  As you can observe I am very selective.  There were no strings attached to that action.  He and his blog is that good. 

Vist Budgets are Sexy today.  Right now!  Learn from Budgets are Sexy. Profit from Budgets are Sexy and thrive. It is your right and I dare to say, “You’ll never look at money the same way again”.

Superb job Mr RL, I can have a drink now!

I couldn’t drink the water.  Do you have this problem?

Quality tap water was only a distant dream.  Water at my new house wasn’t drinkable, even though I have a complete water system installed.  My mini-aussies (picture below) wouldn’t even touch it.

The problems were numerous.  The well hadn’t been used in over a year.  It was too salty because of the water softner.  It had a funny smell and it tasted most like dead, fish tank water. 

I’d never had to care for a water system before as I’ve always made use of municiple water and a filtered water jug.  That was enough until I moved.  Now, the entire household was drinking and cooking with bottled water because of the problems listed above.  How did I deal with it? 

Mr R.L. Continue reading
