Weekend Reading – The Polar Vortex Edition

Polar Vortex

I’m looking out the window and seeing a mixture of freezing rain and ice and there’s no sign of sun in the forecast.  And even though the polar vortex is over for now, there is talk that it could be returning soon.  The national weather map to the left shows that most of the country […]

I was pretty much unplugged during my entire Disney World vacation earlier this month as I really needed to take some time and recharge.  Now that I’m back I’ve been doing a lot of extra reading to catch up on all of the great articles I missed, Here are just a few that stood out […]

What Other Bloggers Are Talking About #1

Once or twice a month my family has Saturday Night Movie Night.  After we finish dinner and clean up the kitchen we gather on the couch and watch a fun family movie together.  Sometimes it is something new for us all, and sometimes it’s something we’ve seen before but all love and enjoy.

Black Market Disney Guides and Link

My wife and I are planning a family trip to Disney World later this year so naturally my ears are tuned into any sign of Disney in the news.  I was a bit surprised when I heard this story though. It seems there is a group of wealthy families that don’t like to wait on […]

Great Reads You May Have Missed

It hasn’t been a productive time for me as I’ve been home sick with both strep throat and the flu.  I spent several days glued to the couch watching Scooby Doo re-runs with my son and I just didn’t care much about anything other than getting some rest. Of course every cloud has a silver […]

Shrinking Paychecks and Some Good Reading

You’ve probably already received your first paycheck of 2013 and if you were paying attention you noticed that it was a bit smaller than you’re used to. “What the hell??  I thought we avoided the fiscal cliff!  I don’t make anywhere near $400,000!” While we were lucky enough to avoid the truly punishing tax increases […]

A Festivus Link Festival

Happy Fesitvus! What is Festivus, you say?  Good question. Festivus is a secular holiday celebrated on December 23 as a way to commemorate the holiday season without participating in its pressures or commercialism.  It was made famous by a 1997 episode of Seinfeld.  In the episode George explains that when he was a boy his […]

Staring next year, IBM is overhauling its 401(k) plan by changing the timing of its employer matching contribution to once a year.  IBM’s contributions will take place December 31 and only those employed with the company on December 15 will receive the match.  Those who leave earlier in the year will effectively forfeit the matching […]

Yankees Eliminated and Some Cool Links

I’m writing this right after watching the New York Yankees get unceremoniously swept out of the playoffs by the Detroit Tigers.  The Yankees mammoth payroll and star-studded lineup wasn’t enough to get them to the World Series. It just goes to show that money doesn’t cure everything.  No team has spent more money than the […]
