Post image for It’s Coming!! BOND WEEK!  and round-up.


in round up

That’s right I know you are excited for our series on Monday looking at BONDS! (Imagine I’m yelling that.) Five whole days of BOND mania, starting with the basics and driving into more detail so that you are a certified BOND specialist at the end of the week. I’ll do my best to make it exciting, martini optional. Please join me won’t you?

Stuff I’m looking at this Week

Budgets are the New Black

A blog I discovered because of her comment here on FiscalGeek. Yes I do read all of the comments and do my best to reply when appropriate. Anyways I discovered this great blog of a family busting it’s way out of debt. Great post from the last week This Snow Is Eating My Snowball. I see we are kindred spirits because we also sponsor kids through Compassion International. Be sure to give it a read.

Image Resizer

If you’re like me and frequently need to get pictures to an appropriate size a super fast and helpful tool is the Image Resizer a free tool that lets you right click on an image and resize to one of several standard settings or a custom size. Very very handy indeed.

Stuff I participated In

My post on The Secret to Success. Hustle was on the Carnival of Personal Finance at Get Rich Slowly. I just have to say that J.D. is a classy guy, I’m sure you’ve all heard of Get Rich Slowly but if you haven’t be sure to check out his blog. Fantastic.

I will tell you that I have Sean Connery but I’d be lying, I was only able to get Timothy Dalton. “Oh James you got me all wet.” “Yes, but my martini is still dry.”
