Back From California and Blog Roundup

This article was written by in Link Sharing. Add a comment.

I spent this past week visiting family in California. My girlfriend (A.) and I joined my family’s west coast contingent for a few days in San Diego, staying at the Hyatt Regency Mission Bay. Among other things, A. and I visited the San Diego Zoo, where I exercised my new Canon Digital Rebel XTi camera with a new Canon EF-S 17-85mm IS USM SLR lens which I picked up prior to leaving for vacation. I took about 500 pictures in the zoo alone, but I selected about 80 pictures for inclusion in my online photograph gallery. The photo I’ve included below is of a guanaco.

Thanks to Sasha and Smithee who entertained Consumerism Commentary readers while I was away. In addition to their excellent articles, such as Ethical Consumerism, an Introduction and Why I Have No Money, here are some articles from the members of the MoneyBlogNetwork:

Retirement Plan Rollover Chart. J.D. managed to dig out this handy chart from the IRS. It explains which rollovers are considered legitimate and the related requirements.

Debt Reduction Guide: Getting Started. No Credit Needed is working on a multi-part guide to eliminating debt, as the article title implies.

Congratulations! You Can Now Keep Your Money. Mighty Bargain Hunter points out that April 23 was “tax freedom day.” The premise behind this “holiday” is that from January 1 until this day, all the money you earn could be sent to the government in the form of taxes, and your liability would be paid in full for the entire year. Of course, this is just an estimate, an assumption based on averages, as everyone’s tax situation is different.
