Wander Reading #31

Posted by Tim Stobbs on November 26, 2010

As some of you might recall I didn’t have a post one day last week and I had asked for suggestions on why that happened.  My favorite response was from Matt:

There was no post today because… I was to busy preparing my watermelon for the big game Sunday.

Now since the Roughriders won that game and are in the Grey Cup this Sunday I thought it would be appropriate to have a link post that celebrates the team.  After all in Saskatchewan this is our second flag and the premier even declared today ‘Green Day.’

And finally the links!

Apparently we are shopping earlier now for Christmas.  Thanks a lot, now I feel really behind!

I was shocked to see this rule change for RRIF withdrawals that might screw over low income seniors. Hopefully they change it.

There are several proposals floating out there to change the CPP.  I like this article for pointing out the obvious, nice idea, but who pays?

Retired Syd asks: why is sex better in retirement?

Million Dollar Journey just paid off his mortgage! Yet what is really neat was he did it in…three years?!?

An interesting article on: why do we vilify the Rich and Successful?

Have a great weekend everyone!

    The story is more like they think of giving seniors a break – back to what they had.

  3. Thanks for the mention Tim!
