Welcome to some fine Weekend Reading folks.
Winter in Canada got you down yet? I know I’m ready to wave the white flag. We continue to get snow in Ottawa amidst -25 degree Celsius weather. Good times if you’re a polar bear. Bad news if you want to see spring like I do. I hope it comes soon.
Earlier this week I answered a few reader questions about how to start investing and I proceeded to answer a few more questions about my monthly dividend income updates.
Speaking of the latter I need to post January’s income update soon. I hope to share that with you next week along with another post I’m thinking about. Also, don’t forget to enter my TurboTax Canada giveaway – I’ve got six online codes to giveaway this year!
Enjoy this Weekend Reading edition, Happy Valentine’s Day and see you here again next week.

Have a great weekend and stay warm over there in Ottawa, I’m seeing the snow is getting pretty crazy for you guys!
I do like the look Syed. Thanks for your ongoing support of the site, content and brand, I appreciate it.
Enjoy your weekend…time for another warm coffee 😉
Thanks for sharing. I got some long weekend reading to do!
Yes you do!
Thanks for the mention! More importantly thanks for all the help with getting me started in the blogging world.
Hey, I didn’t do very much. You did all the work. Best wishes for year #2 Barry.
Thanks for sharing my article!
No sweat, have a good weekend!
Mark, thanks for including my recent buy. Have a great weekend.
Happy to do so, have a great weekend.
If the cold has you down, head south! Thanks for the mention.
Yes, need to do that next year!
I have a decision to make – more gas for the snowblower, or gas for a drive south.
As a retiree, not a particularly difficult choice.
Thanks for the smile Richard 🙂
Thanks for the mention Mark, tough night for your Sens against the Pens tonight (so far)
Heckuva 3rd period though. Enjoy the weekend!
I wouldn’t mind some snow here in Vancouver. It has been way too warm with no snow where the local ski hills are closing.
Thanks for mentioning us.
Love the BCE dividend increase announcement!
Me too. Enjoy the weekend!
Thanks for the inclusion this week, Love Day is really annoying to me, only because of the overplay in the retail world. Showing someone you love, how much you love them does not need to bankrupt you. Enjoy the BLOODY COLD, temperatures this weekend (that is an actual weather term).
Agreed, love doesn’t have to mean bankruptcy…enjoy your weekend!
