The Amateur Asset Allocator is at it again with his Top 5 Budget Date Ideas – quite funny!

Money Grubbing Lawyer had a funny story about his laptop catching on fire.  He also discusses online computer backups, which are something I’ve looked into as well.

Moolomy put together an excellent guide to asset allocation – Everything you ever wanted to know about asset allocation.

Million Dollar Journey wrote about an email he received which criticized him for spending money on consumer goods at the same time as he was thinking about putting his kid in daycare.  According to the emailer, MDJ should be focusing every bit of financial might towards having one parent (guess who?) stay home.  To do otherwise would clearly indicate serious parenting deficiencies…anyways check it out (and the great comments) at The choice between daycare and staying at home.

Michael James on Money worries that online trading might be too convenient.  How do you handle easy access to trades?

Where Does All My Money Go talks about the Bernanke put and whether the inherent moral hazard is raising the risk level in the markets.

Squawkfox writes a lot of food articles so when she did a book review on “The Dip” by Seth Godin, I assumed it was some sort of sexy concoction of hummus, tomatoes and dried beans to dip your chips into.  🙂  Seriously though, after reading her review I’m planning to read the book as well.

Canadian Capitalist wrote about investment asset classes – is there such thing as too much of a good thing?

Money Ning wants to improve his selling skills.

Blunt Money bought 45 jars of spaghetti sauce – check out the photo if you don’t believe it.

Muchas gracias para el linko. Of course, my favorite budget dating tip is to have my sugamama pay for it.

Thank you for linking to my article on asset allocation. That was a lot of work. 🙂 Anyway, the event of this week definitely make me look very closely at my allocation — so far, no change made except for slight adjustment to future contributions.
