In Need of Some Sound Financial Advice?

Hello, friends! Whether your answer to the title question is "yes" or "no," I urge you to visit (and even peruse*!) Bob Lotich's website (Christian Personal Finance). I know that I've placed his link over to the right of the page, but he warrants a nice plug! :) Bob is a personal friend of mine who currently works for a large, nationally known financial firm. You'd definitely recognize the name of the place, but I'm not sure he'd appreciate me divulging that info. Back to the point. Needless to say, there are millions of people struggling with their finances. We all know somebody in that boat, and Bob truly has a heart to help those people. So, what better way to do that than to start with what he knows best? At this point he is not doing any personal consultation through his site, and I'm not even sure if that would be a direction in which he'd want to take it. That's for him to decide. Either way, take a look! Bob's approach is clean and simple, and I'm sure his sage advice could help shed some light on your financial life (whether you believe it's trouble free or not). *For an accurate definition of peruse please see my post below. :P

A Hearty List of Some Common Errors in English

Some of you may be surprised while perusing the following list (CLICK HERE). I know I've learned a few things. Heck, until now, I wasn't aware that peruse actually means "examine thoroughly" and not "glance over hastily," as it is most commonly used. I feel that this has, somehow, revolutionized my life. Well, maybe not. Nevertheless, I highly recommend reading through it. Besides, in the off chance you do learn something, you'll immediately recognize it when someone uses that word/phrase incorrectly...and that, my friends, will drive you mad (hopefully). Like fingernails on a chalkboard. Priceless. Hey! I bet our dear friend, Nathan Sanders, could even learn a thing or two...and his command of the English language is already quite impressive. That's sayin' something!

Crazy Wiffle-Ball Pitcher

Not that this really matters, but I thought many of you (I'm aiming for the masses here) would enjoy this video. I wish I could pitch like this. I know you do too. However, that doesn't make it any more useful than it already isn't. Enjoy.

Not to be out done Thomack and McNeal, that is. I could not sit by and watch them get all the glory, appealing to masses, with their brand-spanking-new blogs. So here it is, in all of it's glory!* *Disclaimer: Total mass appeal sold separately
