Wow, what a summer! Every month I try to write-up a post detailing my current investing ideas, but I failed horribly in August. Summer happened. I was so busy traveling and vacationing around in August, that I didn’t manage to write that post! Ooops! Sorry about that folks! Summer was busy!Read more
Have you tried a “Impossible Burger” yet? It’s a burger made from a new plant-based meat substitute that’s been taking the world by storm this year. The ingredients are mostly soy and potato proteins. Apparently there’s over 9,000 restaurants in the U.S. that now serve some form of the “Impossible Burger”. Pretty neat, right?

First of all, let me say that I love investing. I really do. The fact that you can take a few dollars, invest them, and then make even more dollars, is like a magical dream come true.

Everybody wants to be rich. OK, maybe not everybody… but most people! The process of actually becoming rich however, is another story. It’s not easy.
I used to believe that anybody could achieve Financial Independence before a traditional retirement age. If only they applied themselves. Once reaching the fabled financial status, they could retire early, travel the world, get in shape, or donate their time to worthy causes.

Maybe it was naive of me, but I thought anyone could do it. Now, I’m not so certain.Read more
Whoa! It’s already the middle of August and I’m just getting around to posting July’s numbers? Sorry folks! It’s been that kind of summer!
I’ve been busy hanging-out with the kids a lot this summer, and July in particular was filled with a lot of fun family activities at very affordable prices…Read more
Yep, we’re still on vacation! Last week we were exploring around Dallas and having a great time, but our vacation isn’t over yet! When you’re financially independent and “mostly” retired, you could argue that everyday is a vacation, but I still like to make the distinction when we’re away from home it’s a “vacation”…Read more
