It’s hard to believe that John Lennon would have been 70 years old yesterday. I think John might have been disappointed the world hasn’t progressed as fast as hoped, but I think it will get there. I’m a dreamer too. Enjoy this Google tribute to the occasion.
SoCal Personal Finance Blogger Meet-up
A group of personal finance bloggers got together yesterday in Orange County for the first time. Even though there were concerns about personal safety, it all went well and we bonded over chicken wings and mozzarella sticks. Thanks to the gang from Go Banking Rates for footing the bill.
Also kudos to Len Penzo for organizing it and making sure we set a date for the next one. I can’t wait!
You might remember that my sister and brother joined me at BlogHer 10 a couple of months ago. They didn’t have blogs at the time but left the conference inspired. Please check out my sister’s blog, Musings of a Madwoman. I’ll let you know when my brother’s blog launches in a few weeks.
I’d like to introduce you to a group of bloggers from non-personal finance niches. I met some of these wonderful ladies at the Savvy Blogging Summit last July.
Coupon Cookin – Nikki writes for frugal gourmets interested in tasty meals and great deals. Her crockpot chili recipe has my mouth watering. If you’re looking for a holiday treat make these candy corn popcorn balls.
Eat at Home – Tiffany’s goal is to help families eat at home instead of spending money dining out. Her recipe for ham and potato chowder sounds perfect for these fall evenings. She also regularly spotlights one ingredient which is cake mixes this week.
