Welcome to my last Weekend Reading edition before the holidays! Man, where the heck did this month go? I seriously feel as you get older, time just evaporates!
We’re not ready for the holidays yet but they’re coming whether we like it or not. We have a few days to get our act together and hopefully that will be enough. Before Santa makes his way to your jolly door this holiday season, I want to take a brief moment to say THANK YOU. Thanks for the reading, the social sharing, and the comments on the site (even the odd terse ones). You continue to make My Own Advisor a pleasure to run, a forum for me to express my personal finance and investing views (or anything else that comes to mind) and share your own.
I wish you and your family and friends, a safe, happy and enjoyable holiday – and best wishes for 2016. I’ll be back next week for a post or two, we’ll see.
