November 2010 Dividend Income Update

  A few days late with my dividend income update, but better late than never! It’s been hectic week since we got back from vacation but in a good way. My wife celebrated her birthday this past week, we started packing for our move (coming in two weeks, whoa) and we got some Christmas shopping done.

I’m back from Argentina edition – Part 1

As the saying goes, time flies when you’re having fun. Well, not only did my wife and I spend almost three weeks in Argentina, we also spent about 14,000 miles in the air; travel to and from Argentina and within the country itself. Time, flying and fun in this case, certainly went together! Over three weeks ago on my blog, I discussed “why Argentina”? Well, I can now confirm (and refute) what I thought about Argentina before our trip. Here’s what you should know about this fine country in Part 1 of my back from vacation post: •Buenos Aires ...
