  1. Good reading. I was shocked, yet not really surprised by that truly silly couple and their money pit house. I will never understand people who do not think through their actions and the consequences. I was also surprised about the Obama’s diversification of investments, pretty cool and I like the conservative nature. Thanks for the great links. Have a good weekend.

    • HMB,
      Its amazing how many people go through life like this – I see couples/families profiled regularly – and each one seems to be worse than the one before.

      It was interesting to see how the Obama’s manage their portfolio – with a schedule like that, bonds and index funds sure make a lot of sense. The pension doesnt hurt, I bet 🙂

      Hope you are having a good wknd

    • Hey David,
      Thanks for sharing some quality posts…Ive been a long time lurker on your site and really like the articles you put out. Glad to send some traffic your way 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by

  2. Thanks for not mentioning my blog in your review! 🙂 – just teasing. If there was an irony button, I would press it now. Well, you mentioned some nice reads. I have read a few already before but you have a few I haven’t. I’ll give it a shot.
    I know, lately I was focusing more on the market ($SPX) and options trading rather than dividends, so there is not much to mention on my blog, but I promise, I will think about it more and write more about my dividend investing so I can get some mentions too :))
    Just teasing you man, you are doing a great job on your blog and I am in a good mood now and want to be a bit sarcastic :), but for good, no pun intented

    • Hey Martzee,
      I noticed that most of their activity was on options..have been following along. Looking forward to see more articles to share on the weekly posts.

      Good to hear that you like the posts, and its all good 🙂
