Kitty PoP enjoying the morning sunshine hanging out next to our new tomato plants. Every morning, Kitty PoP makes it his business to patrol the inside of our pool cage. He checks for lizards or other fun “playmates” that may have made their way into his territory. This is his version of the big [...] ...

Happy National Bike To Work Day, Everyone!! I, for one, will be celebrating by doing what I do almost every day – biking to work. =) For me, May also marks the FIVE YEAR anniversary of me becoming a full-time bike commute and the FOUR YEAR anniversary of when we sold our second car and [...] ...

After hosting the 2017 party at our house in Florida, Mrs. PoP and I were back in Omaha for the 2018 Berkshire Hathaway Annual Shareholders meeting. We may do a bigger post later on, but here are our top 3 from the trip. Warren and Charlie are looking (and sounding) pretty good these days. Let’s [...] ...

First time out on my new paddleboard. It was windy, so on knees it was! Since we’ve never published a quarterly income statement, forgive me if the format seems a little odd. I’m still getting the hang of squishing this much information into a single post. Here’s how you should read each line: ...

Okay… so that title’s probably a bit of an exaggeration. But “biking among billionaires” just has a much nicer ring to it than “biking among multi-millionaires”, so please forgive me for the hyperbole for the remainder of this post. =) As longtime readers know, I’ve been a bike commuter for nearly 5 years now (it’ll [...] ...

It’s been a while since we did a He Said/She Said on our blog, so forgive us if this is a little rusty. We talk a decent amount on this blog about how much we’re saving (*cough* all those income statement and balance sheet posts *cough* ) and (though to a lesser extent the past [...] ...

Look at those eyes! So cute! A week ago, we left for our evening walk and our neighbor called us over. “Hey!” he said, pointing downward, “Is this your cat'” There on the ground, circling our neighbor’s feet, was a ridiculously friendly kitten. Within a minute, the kitten had stopped circling our neighbor’s feet [...] ...

This past weekend, Mr PoP realized that we were down about $40K in market value on our investments over the past week due to market losses. It didn’t bother us (if anything it was just taking back some of the INSANE gains from YTD before that), but it meant that one subject of conversation in [...] ...

The last line was what caught my eye… A couple of weeks ago I was poking around the “Edit Accounts” section of Mint.com trying to see if I could add our new Vanguard Donor Advised Fund to the list of accounts we track in Mint, and I happened to look to the right and [...] ...

2017 was a year of highs and lows, and very much felt defined by two items: Mr PoP finally buying his dream car – a 25 year old Honda, and living that joy daily, and Experiencing our first ever hurricane and dealing with the stress and the aftermath in our own ways. Looking at our [...] ...
