I got a pretty good laugh this week when one of my email subscribers decided to unsubscribe from the feed. When this happens (rarely) I get an email notification. Along with the notification I got another email from the unsubscriber himself who returned the post email (which was on weekly mortgage payments) with the following message (I added the “*”s):
What’s wrong with paying mortgage off faster. F*** off you dumb, fat, f***ing pig.
Of all the posts we’ve done I thought that one was least likely to make someone go off the deep end but I guess you never know! 🙂
Million Dollar Journey had a very interesting post on his future home gym which generated quite a discussion in the comments.
Moolanomy had a question and answer post with Larry Swedroe who is a financial advisor. My question on currency hedging for Canadians was answered and I thought the answer was definitely worth reading. He also had an interesting post about how mutual fund investors can inadvertently pay for other investor’s taxes.
Cash For Life hosted the Carnival of Frugality this week. I don’t normally read this carnival but I’m glad I did this week. Early Retirement Extreme had a post on why you should get a push mower to save money. I say you should get a push mower because it’s good exercise! Stop the ride had a great post on 13 Ways To Use Dryer Lint. Yes, DRYER LINT!! Check out the link at #6 if you want to learn how to make lint paper mache animals – great for Xmas gifts or to decorate the house! 🙂
Mr. Cheap’s popular post on how to calculate (or at least estimate) your Entertainment Return On Investment was featured in the Carnival of Personal Finance.
Green Dragon Potato
And last but certainly not least – the photo you see at the top is what I call “Green Dragon Potato” and my wife made them for dinner last night. It’s not sushi but it’s a heck of a lot cheaper!
