October 2016 Outdoor Fall Blog Photos

Below are three photos taken outdoors in October 2016. I used a Groupon coupon and there is retouching such a small stain on my shirt and the one photo with the fuchsia scarf had my coat on the side showing and I asked the photographer to take it out of the photo. I wore fuchsia [...]

Get Wise To Your Advisor Book Review

This is a brief synopsis on the book Get Wise To Your Advisor: How to Reach Your Investment Goals Without Getting Ripped Off by Steven D. Lockshin (John Wiley & Sons, Inc. (C) 2013). First, allow me to mention I read the book rather casually as advisors and Wall Street are rather distant and foreign concepts to [...]

Free eBooks

Project Gutenberg – http://www.gutenberg.org/ – This site offers free eBooks ranging from Aesop’s fables to Paradise Lost to dictionaries. From what I understand originally most of the eBooks are older, the copyright is past, and or the original author(s) are no longer living and as a result the eBooks could be freely distributed.
