Friday Finance Links March 8, 2013 – Late Winter Edition


Understanding your retirement

The almost 10 inches of snow we received earlier in the week should mostly be gone with temperatures forecast to be near 50 over the weekend.  Maybe spring is really near.  Tonight we are having dinner with two of our kids.  Tomorrow my wife, one of our daughters, and I will be doing some volunteer work at a local food pantry.

Here are a few links to some great weekend financial reading.
