Hey, I just met you, and this is Lazy... get these fast finance fixes and mail me, maybe?

Personal Finance Links (Our Marley, McGruber)

Written by

This weekend, my wife introduced me Marley and Me (the movie). She had seen it on the way back from a business trip. If you've seen it, it sums up our life in the last month. Jake is growing faster than he's learning and it's leading to a situation where he doesn't understand his own strength. He also has teeth that are just like vampire's - probably worse. There have been good moments this weekend. Sometimes he's behaved so well, that we joke that Fred is here... Fred being the someone else's well-behaved dog because he certainly can't be Jake. I'll be trying to step up his training this week - it would be nice to have more Fred moments than Jake ones.

In other news, I'd like to give thanks to my friend Kosmo at The Casual Observer for leaving a comment on McGruber reminding me to post the video below. I had meant to link to this before now, but it didn't seem available right away.

While on the topic of Kosmo and his site, I should have mentioned that Kosmo has a stock market contest that I participated in. I don't know why I set myself up to lose these things. I'm certain not a "Goliath" as he says.

And now to the Personal Finance links

  1. Thanks for the PR, Lazy Man. Someone else mentioned McGyver in the comments, and my brain does an immediate word association to McGruber. I wonder how much McGruber has boosted the sales of McGyver DVD sets?

    Regarding the stock market contest:
    The gist is 3 personal finance bloggers vs. 3 ordinary Joes. You can also submit your own guess by leaving a comment. We’re past the cutoff for me to officially score the new entries, but if you’re spot-on with your guess, I’ll still point out how smart you are in the monthly updates. Each of the 6 contestants analyzes the reasons for their guess.

    About the site:
    I almost hesitate to use the term blog, since we break from the traditional blog format of delving deeply into a particular niche (a great format that works very well for a lot of folks).

    I have begun marketing the site as “a web magazine that covers a world of topics every week”. We hit everything from sports to “real news” and also have a new fiction short story on Fridays. In an effort to pursue a 1:1 writer:reader ratio (I’m kidding – I think), we have brought onboard a weekly sports columnist and weekly entertainment writer (Bob Inferapel’s first piece should appear next weekend).

    Try us for a week to get a feel for the site. If you don’t like it, simply return the unused portion for a full refund.
