This holiday break, I’ve been seeing some fun-filled days with my extended family during which I’ve spent the time watching movies, playing board games, and just reconnecting with the loved ones I only see once, or maybe twice a year. So pardon our somewhat erratic schedule here, which we may continue to have over the next few days. Still, I’ve managed to squeeze a few reads here today, courtesy of some of my favorite blogs from the financial blogosphere. Hope you enjoy these articles as much as I have!
