    Thanks for the roundup – some interesting articles.

    Just discovered your blog and read a few of your posts – excellent and interesting stuff.

    I live in the states, though orginally from Australia, so my blog ( has a little bit of both countries in it. However finance is finance no matter where you are and you can’t go wrong with saving/investing etc.

    I have added you to my US blog roll and will be a regular reader.
