I would like to wish all you readers a Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Festivus or anything else you want to celebrate in the next little while. :)

I’m looking forward to having a bit of time off during which we’ll be visiting family and hopefully getting the little ones out skating.

I’ll resume posting at some point in January.  Have a good one!

On with the links

Mike from the Oblivious Investor made a pretty huge change to his investment portfolio. Hopefully Vanguard will offer this kind of product in Canada some day. It’s hard to argue with the simplicity.

Morris R from Self-Publishing 2.0 makes the interesting observation that we are reading less and watching videos more.

I thought this story was neat – Amazon hires thousands of seasonal workers and they all live in RVs.

Million Dollar Journey says that cash is king. I can’t say I disagree. Another benefit of having lots of cash is that you don’t have to worry about bounced cheques or having enough money to pay a large bill.

Blunt Bean Counter had a good article about an easy way to track your spending.

Michael James argues that pay parity is not a valid negotiation argument.

Boomer & Echo how to know if your investment loan tax-deductible?

Mike, thx for the link and others you made throughout the year. Happy Holidays and all the best to you and your family. I hope if you are skating outdoors you have a better rink than the pond in my backyard in TO.
