Friday Finance Links December 21, 2012 – End of The World Edition


If the end of the Mayan calendar really signals the end of the world today, this will be my last Friday links post.

Assuming this is not the case, big day today.  I’m heading up to Milwaukee for lunch with the “Old Boyz” a group of guys from high school who get together a couple times per year.  It’s always great to see everyone.  This evening our oldest is flying into O’ Hare.  It will great to have all three kids at home for the holidays.

Here is some great weekend financial reading:
