December Update – working through our 2010 financial goals

Wow, Christmas is almost here…are you ready? My wife and I are normally the types to have our acts together but this year, with our move to a new home just days away and many other things on the go, we’ve fallen behind in our holiday preparations.

Fun and productive I must say!   Like some of my fellow bloggers already announced (Passive Income Earner, Loonie Bin to name a couple), shareholders of Enbridge were also given a reason to celebrate this week: the Calgary-based pipeline ...
