Welcome to some Weekend Reading where I share some of the best articles from the personal finance blogosphere. This week, I contacted the five (5) winners of my recent giveaway and I wrote about my latest thoughts on debt – it’s a four-letter word for us here and I questioned whether you should make debt tax-deductible (or simply pay off what you owe instead).
Stay tuned for another giveaway on my site next week! Thanks for reading and enjoy your weekend folks.
Here’s a couple that seems to be living the good life in Panama. This is something my wife and I have discussed. We’ll see…time will tell if we do something like this in another 10 years.

Big Cajun Man discussed up selling in banking. “The sure I’ll have fries with that” seems to be working because BMO, National Bank and CIBC all raised dividends this week thanks very much.

Congrats to John Robertson for going over 1,000 book sales with The Value of Simple. You can read my review of John’s book here.
