Not every post is going to be about credit cards, but many of the credit card benefits will be serving as a solid leg for our travel plans. Today I’d like to talk about the: IHG Rewards Club Select card. Read more
One of the things we’re doing to prepare for our upcoming travel is to take advantage of some credit card offers. I had long been a proponent of absolutely no debt, but alas some of the sign up bonuses are just too good to refuse. (Standard disclaimer: if you don’t pay your balance in full, credit card interest is apt to quickly erode any bonus benefit.)
I’d like to show you what I mean by sharing some of the offers that we have worked on in the last few months. Today I’ll start with the: Read more
It’s now been just over 10 months since the last post on this site. For those of you that are still with me: Hello Again!
Since that time I have still been writing a fair amount, just in other places. I recently looked it up, since April of last year, I’ve put out Read more
Today I wanted to share a video. Previously I was going to write out a post, but I think this feature does a nice job of summing up what I was going to say. It’s not perfect – if it’s not in your own words, it’s never going to be exactly what you would have said – but I think the gist is on par. Read more
My December Challenge – to write 31 articles in 31 days – was a success. That brings my challenge record up to 13.5 and 2.5 or a completion rate of about 84%. As you might have noticed I didn’t post goals for the last few months and indeed have not been updating this site. It’s not that I haven’t been active; it’s just that my attention has been focused elsewhere. That’s what I’d like to address today. Read more
My November challenge – to lift 60 tons in 20 days – was a success. This brings my challenge record up to 12.5 and 2.5 or a completion rate of about 83%. I like mixing it up with physical and mental challenges, so this was a good one to focus on the physical side. I worked out during 19 of the 20 days, and my total was actually a bit closer to 74 tons. Challenge Read more
My October Challenge turned out to be a success, bringing my challenge record to 11.5 and 2.5 or a completion rate of about 82%. The challenge this month was to be in the top 5 in five different investment categories on Seeking Alpha. For the month I ended up writing 38 articles and easily met my mark. Here’s where I finished in various categories: Read more
The choice is the important part, not the extravagance.
Actually, you – along with your surrounding environment – could be worse off if you ordered 100 plates in a dining establishment. Read more
My September Challenge turned out to be a success, bringing my challenge record to 10.5 and 2.5, or a completion ratio of just over 80%. The challenge this month was to enjoy 50 meals for under $50. The contest called for the lowest 50 to be under a dollar per meal and not necessarily every single serving.
I could list all of the meals (I kept track of them all) but I think I’ll spare you the play-by-play and just summarize the results. As expected breakfast was the winner here: I had Read more
If you go to bing.com today (September 17th, 2015) you’ll see a lovely animation of Segovia, Spain. Bing provides a new picture or scene on its homepage each day to add a little something extra to your Internet search experience. If you don’t care to check out the scene (or are reading this after the 17th) the screen shot to the left shows you what I’m talking about.
Now I bring this up for a very specific reason. I’m not trying to lead you on an Internet scavenger hunt. Instead, this depiction is personal to me and I’d like to Read more
