Incredible trip report from DanielW in Flyertalk! Must read. Awesome index with all his other trip reports in #1. Wow.
Ok, this is a repost. It made TBB then and it makes it again. Because…it is that good!
We are all addicted. These bloggers are addicted to the dinero from selling credit cards.
These are all great but I had to pick my favorites out of 41 of them…
- We get just one shot at making the journey from birth to retirement. Flirting with financial disaster is not advisable [looking at you contemplating going all in on Bitcoin crypto shit]
4. What’s the difference between an equity-indexed annuity and an index fund? One needs an army of salespeople. The other sells itself.
12. A boat is not your financial friend, but a friend with a boat is. [Oh man, sooooo true!]
22. Everybody’s a long-term investor when the market is going up.
35. We might retire from the workforce, but we should never retire from the pursuit of a fulfilling life.
Just read them all, you ‘ll be glad you did!
Your smartphone📱is making you👈 stupid, antisocial 🙅 and unhealthy 😷. So why can’t you put it down❔⁉️
I have been pounding on this theme for a while. We are undergoing a huge change. Look around you, everyone is glued to their damn phones! It was predicted in…1907 in this cartoon, sad!
…smartphones are causing real damage to our minds and relationships, measurable in seconds shaved off the average attention span, reduced brain power, declines in work-life balance and hours less of family time. They have impaired our ability to remember. They make it more difficult to daydream and think creatively. They make us more vulnerable to anxiety. They make parents ignore their children. And they are addictive…
But 10 years into this age of connectedness, we have learned something troubling: Being connected to everyone all the time makes us less attentive to the people we care about most. Nowhere is the alienating power of smartphones more troubling than in the relationship between parents and children. Put simply, smartphones are making mothers and fathers pay less attention to their kids and it could be causing emotional harm.
Sobering article on how the lack of college education is becoming a public health crisis. Rural America is dying and we are witnesses to it. Their cry for help was…voting for Trump. It should be a wake up call to the Democrats to connect with them, they are not all deplorables. It’s like we are living in two different countries…
I am hungry, going to make me a sandwich next.
And I leave you with this…
