Fractured Friday v01/11/12

My friend Catherine Gacad ask me to be a guest blogger on her “Money Monday” series because my husband and I retired early.  I worked in the financial industy for 35 years in addition to my husband, Tom Mingle, being a strong influence on my spending habits.  It is pretty basic advice. but I wanted to include it in case you were interested. Thanks for the invitation Catherine, I look forward to posting about other financial subjects.


amberMy friend Amber Clisura, a blogger, a designer and one of my fashion heroes, is writing a “tutorial” on How to Dress for the Edwardian Ball.  I thought you might enjoy reading her piece about a very unusual event.

Happiness arises as a result of different causes and conditions. If you harm someone out of anger, you may feel some superficial satisfaction, but deep down you know it was wrong. Your confidence will be undermined. However, if you have an altruistic attitude, you’ll feel comfortable and confident in the presence of others.  Dali Lama
