I'll be on vacation for the next few days, going to a retreat in the Swiss Alps. It's called "Time of Refreshing" and I know that it will be just that for me. I'm taking the train. It's a 7-hour ride, so there will be lots of time for reading, ... Read more

Saturday, October 03, 2009      24 comments

One of my CC companies decided to raise their interest rate to 24-something earlier this year. I opted out and the account will close when it expires at the end of the year. I figured there's no reason to keep the card around. I might be tempted... Read more

It's me again - just had a short but good nap. Here's my goals for the month of August. Since I'll be traveling most of the time, meeting some of them will be a challenge. Quite a few need to be done before I go, so it's a good thing I only have... Read more
