Best Personal Finance Writing – Week 19

I finally have a weekend to breathe. But rather than take it easy, I’ll be going to my daughter’s soccer game, doing yard work, and otherwise catching up on some blog writing.

It’s getting to be that time of year when weekends start to feel like the work week. This only affirms my feelings that time is more valuable than money.

Last night the St. Louis Cardinals retired Tony La Russa’s Number 10, and it was nice to see all the baseball greats turn out to honor him. I still get goosebumps thinking about the 2011 World Series. Although the Cards weren’t able to get a win against the tough Braves last night, Carlos Beltran is looking good and I’m very encouraged for this season.

  3. Hey John, first time stopping by. Thanks for including the blog carnivals you were featured on, more pf blogs to be exposed too.

  4. Thanks for the mention John. Be sure to find some time to relax during your busy weekend. I’m sure your daughter’s soccer game and the yard work will be enjoyable in their own way. At least it is a break away from office work and the computer.

  6. 2011 World Series game 6 – one of the greatest games I’ve ever seen. As a Braves fan, I’ll root for the Cards as long as they’re not playing the Braves.

    • Thanks JW – I’d like to see the Braves battle the Cards this year. You guys sure put the hurt to us the past few games though!

  7. So La Russa ‘s jersey number was retired. I hope that a slot in the Baseball Hall of Fame would come shortly.

    • I do as well – he certainly deserves it. I think we have to wait five years before he is eligible, but I see him as a first-ballot choice for sure.

      Thanks for reading, Travis!

  8. We are big Cards fans here too, John.. And while it wasn’t the best weekend (we got swept)– I have been very encouraged by this season so far.. It is very early, but I wouldn’t be too surprised if we get to experience baseball in October once again..

    Thanks for the mention!

    Thanks for the mention John!
