Weekly Roundup - June 4, 2016
|Happy Weekend! Check out what's been going on in my world and some of the best articles from around the blogosphere.|
My wife and I have also been getting the nursery ready a little bit every day. Since she's going to be 35 weeks this coming Monday the baby could come at anytime so we need to be at least a little prepared. We have just about everything that we absolutely need, name a car seat and a crib, so we can get the baby home. Now that we're moving into the final push I'm getting pretty excited to find out whether we're having a boy or a girl. In case you don't remember we're finding out the way they used to whenever the baby gets here. In this day and age with instant gratification on just about anything it's been really nice having this one thing to wait for and build up anticipation.
I'm still working on getting into a routine for my writing and other blog development activities, but it's slowly coming around. This is going to be absolutely vital to do since being a stay at home dad and full time blogger while my wife goes back to work is a very possible reality over the coming months.
The Devil's Financial Dictionary by Jason Zweig (affiliate link) is a nice little time killer that gives brutally honest and often humorous definitions of different finance and investing terminology.
Today's word/definition is:
"New Economy, n. - An economy identical to the old one, with only one difference: more hype. Memes such as 'New Economy' are dangerous, as they seek to replace skeptical analysis with pat catchphrases. And they often proliferate at the worst possible time; Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan, for instance, suggested in a speech in late 1998 that a 'new economy' might well have arrived. A year and a half later the stock market boom he had pointed to went bust."On to the Roundup
