LinkStuff – Happy Holidays Edition

by Mike Holman

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

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.

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.
