Week in Review: Knotts Berry Farm Edition

by Kay Lynn

 Last week was Veteran’s Day and one of the Veteran’s offers I listed was free admission to Knotts Berry Farm for Veterans and one guest through November 26th.  Mr. Boomer and I are taking advantage of the offer this weekend. I’m not a thrills ride person but Mr. Boomer loves it! We’ll have fun just doing something different.

It was a different week in other ways at well.  My company honored employees that are military veterans with a company-wide dessert hour Wednesday.  Even though we have roughly equal gender numbers there were more female veterans this year than male.  That was a first! 

I had a guest post published and some readers did pop over to check out other articles.   Lastly, I had an over 50 test that involves preparation.  Thankfully that is only repeated every 5 years.  Enough said about that!  On to the excellent articles I read this week.

Editor’s Picks

 1. The Day I Killed my Credit Card.  Brad @ Enemy of Debt brings the battle against credit card debt to life with his tale.  Even though I think credit cards are a necessary evil for several reasons (this is one of those things where I don’t agree totally with Dave Ramsey) it’s a fun read. 

2. The Best of Procrastination Quotes – Share Yours. I don’t have a good quote, but I share this bad habit with Ray @ Financial Highway so found this post fun to read. Can you believe he came up with 31?

3. 3 Things a Day. Going hand in hand with the above article, FB @ Fabulously Broke helps procrastinators break through the barrier with a system to check off at least 3 items a day.

4. Paycheck Error: Our Emergency Fund in Action. Would you be able to escape financially unscathed if a digit was dropped from your paycheck? Aryn @ Sound Money Matters illustrates the importance of a well-funded emergency fund.

5. The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs.Lynn Truong @ Wise Bread gives us four secrets of why Steve Jobs is an excellent presenter. One thing that’s no longer secret is that it involves work — even if you’re Steve Jobs.

6. Affordable College Towns for Retirement.I’ve discussed that relocation is a possibility when Mr. Boomer and I retire. GoTo @ Go To Retirement discusses housing affordability in the college town arena.
