Monday Linkstuff

by Mike Holman

Every once in a while I like to showcase a new or “newish” blog that I really like and I don’t think a lot of my readers know about.  This time I’m talking about Tough Money Love.  I really like this American blog because the auther is very opiniated.  Too many blogs are just plain boring – they write for search engines, they compile lists of ways to save money on groceries….boring, boring, boring!  TML tells it like it is and doesn’t mind if he offends a few people on the way.

Weight

182 pounds.  I didn’t exercise as much last week since I was out of town for several days eating, eating and eating….

Ron from the The Wisdom Journal had a post on the Canadian banking system which is the soundest in the world.  His description of US investment banks was priceless:

…US banks, which operate like a mix between a Wild West cowboy, a suckling piglet, a guy who wants to sell you a Rolex from the trunk of his car, and a two year old throwing a fit while screaming “MINE! MINE! MINE!”

3 Shevy

Hmm, my last blog post was titled Shevy, Rationalizing!

I really do see the value in having a functional bathroom and not having to pay for it until January 2010. But I don’t like adding to our debt load with that $500 odd. But the bathroom won.

Shevy, I think you can be forgiven for wanting a bathroom. 🙂
