First Month Living Without a Car

Recently, I moved to San Francisco and as part of the move I decided to sell my vehicle and live car-less. I felt (and feel) that I could get most of my transportation around the city done with bicycle or public transportation. So long as I can get to/from work and to/from a grocery store, then I should be fine. I’d like to report in on my progress … [Read more...]

The DQYDJ Weekender, 2/28/2015

Welcome to another rousing Weekender - our recurring special where we send you off our site to other interesting pieces around the web that you may not have seen.  (Come back... promise?) Links We Liked! First, we want to share our friend Robert's (of The College Investor fame) list of top investing blogs.  We're humbled by the inclusion and … [Read more...]

The DQYDJ Weekender, 2/21/2015

It's a conspiracy - I was trying to write a new calculator on the Macbook and I got the dreaded "white screen of death" (it's restoring from backup as we speak).  So, yeah, I'm writing this entry on the PC - I've got to be careful or I'll fall back in love with this huge monitor... Links we Liked! At Philosophical Economics - an excellent look … [Read more...]

The DQYDJ Weekender 2/14/2015

Happy Valentine's Day!  We love our readers so we're here, of course, to send you off our site to some other sites and articles that we enjoy. Ironic how these weekend things work, isn't it? Links We Liked! I'm in a "data breach" sort of mind, so first up is an oldie-but-goodie from the PoPs on Mrs. PoP's experience with identity … [Read more...]

The DQYDJ Weekender, 2/8/2015

Now that was a pretty epic Super Bowl - from the perspective of a Patriots fan.  Agreed? Links We Liked! A Wealth of Common Sense asks if Financial Literacy is a lost cause.  We took this on once from the perspective that 'everything you need to know can be taught in a day' (and created this serious article, sarcastically).  I think the debate … [Read more...]

The DQYDJ Weekender, 2/1/2015

I'm a Patriots fan. This is their 8th Super Bowl Appearance, and they've lost four - XX (Bears), XXXI (Packers), XLII, XLVI (Giants for both). If they lose, they'll be in sole possession of most Super Bowl losses of any team. Go Patriots! Links We Liked! We sent our BOY Nelson (it makes sense when you click) an article about a condo … [Read more...]

The DQYDJ Weekender, 1/25/2015

I hope you weren't deflated to not wake up to a DQYDJ weekender yesterday - we warmed it up for you to read it today. Links We Liked! We feature lots of Financial Uproar because Nelson delivers interesting stuff like this takedown of poor money management from an affluent Canadian couple. Even more tough love from Canada at Save. Spend. … [Read more...]

The DQYDJ Weekender, 1/17/2015

Good week so far?  Yes?  No?  (And which day is a 'week' considered over?). From a site-runner's perspective, it's nice to see the traffic that disappeared in the holidays (and more!) come back in the early year numbers.  But, let's be honest - we're just biding time until the tax articles, a topic that Cameron knows under-serves some income … [Read more...]

The DQYDJ Weekender, 1/10/2015

Ahh, the first Weekender in a while, and the first one of the new year - maybe we should call it the 'monthly' or something?  Regardless, happy new year to those who see fit to subscribe to DQYDJ! Also, of course, happy new year to the new people at the gym and the new site on the internet - may your undertakings be fruitful, and don't hesitate … [Read more...]

A Review of Ironmaster’s Super Bench (and Dip, Chin Up, and Crunch/Situp Attachments)

My wife and I recently undertook a project to reclaim some space in our house, targeting our sunroom (really, a hybrid gym and rec room) for an upgrade.  We ended up getting a package of an Ironmaster Super Bench, Dip Attachment, Crunch/Situp Attachment, along with getting the Chin Up Attachment separately. I’m a huge Ironmaster fan now, after … [Read more...]
