Happy Memorial Day!

Growing up, my family ALWAYS used Memorial Day as a day to go decorate the graves of our family. We used to pack a picnic lunch and squeeze all five of us and my Nana into our 1978 Buick Riviera and drive a couple of hours to this small town and decorate my mom’s family’s graves. In some ways I hated it because it was always right after the school year ended and I wanted to spend my time doing other things. However, as I got older, I felt like it was my duty to remember and respect those who were gone.

Anyway, today is a great day to thank a veteran! Without them, we wouldn’t be the United States of America.

Blog of the Week – No. 36

This week’s Blog of the Week is GetRichSlowly. Although this blog is relatively new, it gets a lot of traffic. I just found this blog this week when I noticed that the author linked to one of my posts.

Anyway, it is a nicely-written blog with cool posts like this one, which is a list of useful spreadsheets and this one, which offers tips for selling on eBay. I thought it was funny that the book he mentions selling, The Hidden Game of Baseball, is the same book I picked up at my local library (in perfect condition) for $1.00! He sold his for $71.

Oh, and here’s a link so that you can subscribe to his feed.
