Happy Thanksgiving!

This article was written by in Fun and Contests. 4 comments.

I hope everyone has a happy holiday! There are many, many things I’m thankful for. Sure, it’s great to have a job and have money coming in. Most importantly, I’m thankful for the wonderful, supportive people I’ve met online through this blog as well as through my other blogs. I met my girlfriend through one of my websites, and I’m happy, but surprised, she’s put up with me for so long. I’m also thankful for my wonderful familiy.

But this is a blog about personal finance, not touchy-feely… feelings. The topic for Thanksgiving Day is inflation, and if you check the television, you’re bound to see and hear about monster inflation today. I’ve posted some evidence of monster inflation which you will see if you continue reading this blog entry.

(It’s an inflatable Super Grover float from last year’s parade.) Happy Thanksgiving!

With the strengthening of the Euro, I expect more people will be getting rid of the USD and inflation will continue to rise here in the US. I’ve moved a lot of my personal money into an ING account where I get about 3.5% on my to at least let my liquid assets try to keep up with inflation.
