My wife and I walked into the Kia dealership off 494 in early July. I felt dirty about it. Being the frugal and very skeptical guy I am, I put my hands up and immediately announced to everyone on the sales floor, “Okay. I’m looking for the least sleazy guy in here.” The smiling salesman […] ...

Illustrator’s note: I’m not a caricature artist. Big apologies to Steve (ThinkSaveRetire) and Carl (Mr. 1500) and to the guy playing cornhole in the back. I suppose it was fitting to meet the legendary Mr. 1500 at the Grossen Bart Brewery in Longmont, where they name all their brews after facial hair and sell beard […] ...

I got mild interest from Mrs. Groovy… then Karin said, Do the app! That was enough buzz for me! The Half Hour Hank iPhone app is live on the App Store and I’m pretty proud of it. If you are looking for a fun way to keep track of all your one-off misfit home-improvement projects, […] ...

I talk a lot on this blog about escaping the rat race. It’s a common theme on blogs about financial freedom. The allure of having enough money so you don’t have to ever have to punch a clock. So you can get away from an annoying boss that you want to punch in the face. […] ...

Hi everybody. Since my site’s not getting too much traffic, I hacked into another way more popular website and posted some of my random ramblings there so I can get them out into the world. Luckily, my pal, Cubert, over at Abandoned Cubicle left his site wide open so he could go on vacation somewhere warm. […] ...

I feel bad. I’ve been hogging all the Mead notebooks for myself. Finally, after one and a half years, I opened up the ole spiral-bound for a guest post from Tom at FIREd Up Millennial. And he sent a sweet sketch along with it! Tom has some great stuff to say about Star Wars and your […] ...

I always struggle a little bit on what to get my wife for her birthday. Today is her birthday. Valentine’s Day is her birthday. It seems easy enough. A husband’s dream even. It’s easy to remember. There’s ready-made romance all around. But I make everything five times harder than it needs to be, so… there’s […] ...

I promised it. And here it is. The monthly update for my quest to earn $5,000 in gross revenue this year from things other than my day job. And the number is… 53 cents! Here it is in spreadsheet cells to make it seem more official and somehow more significant: Hmmm. I’ll be honest with […] ...

Blast it all! This week I have some bad news for you. You know those articles that absolutely nobody read about my highly speculative stock picks for my little micro-portfolio called The Short Stack' Yeah… I’m closing it down. You can read all about the reasons I originally set up the portfolio right here (maybe […] ...

My wife was driving her car to the grocery store on her day off the other day. She slid on some ice, veered to avoid a couple cars, hopped the curb, and took out a small boulevard maple tree (probably a maple). She’s okay. She didn’t get hurt. I think that was second question out […] ...
