milan, here is how my wife and I finally got a hold of our finances (well, a good start on them at least)... We paid for _everything_ on a credit card that gets some nice points/rewards. And I mean everything. Every starbucks, every bag of chips, new cardigan for the wife, driving range, lunch, groc...

I don't know if I understand this right but... You are paying $330 per year for a $50,000 life insurance policy? I am paying $70/month($840/year, in cad $) for $500,000 x 2 (covers both my wife and myself). 50,000/330 = 151.51 500,000/840 = 595.23 (x2?) I don't know if your policy delivers enough be...

I have a huge problem finding clothes that fit off the rack. The most comfortable clothes I own are my custom tailored suits and shirts... but I can't afford to wear those everyday and my work environment doesn't call for it. Just finding a pair of jeans is next to impossible. At 5'8" and 175lb...

I have similar problems on a near daily basis. One of my best friends is now employed by me. Yes, that was a mistake, but he has skills my business needs and I pay well... at time there are problems though - hard to be the boss and friend and still get stuff done. Anyways, he has severe financial pr...

I love to drive... when no one else is on the road at least :) I've test driven the yaris several times. It drives fine. not great, not special, not horrible. Not piss your pants fun like I find the STi, but hey.. I could buy 3 or 4 yaris's for the STi. My uncle owns a very nice mercedes amg. I love...

hahaha, nice one Jer. I am sorta like that... to a degree. I mean, the STi is the car I've wanted since high school basically (when I saw my first subaru impreza and researched it, before that I wanted an RX7). I am signed up for my very first track day in june. I do participate in some local car cl...

So my wife and I own two vehicles. I drive a 2006 Subaru WRX STi - very sporty, big gas guzzler, require ultra premium. She drives a 2004 Acura TSX, comfortable car, still drinks a lot of premium gas. Both cars are paid off. We've recently moved a bit farther away from town. I've recently started to...

I have left zero tip before, but it was for some damn awful service... One time I was waiting for my glass of wine to be replaced for 25 mins and I could see my waitress smoking out front with the other waitress. This was at a nice restaurant too... I tend to tip heavily though, as I realise that th...

Didn't you get an email address with your ISP? Use that. Ad's on your application email are annoying. I'd also use an email address strictly for your job search. Turn off all filtering and anti-spam stuff too. You don't want to lose a job opportunity because the company that wants to hire you is hos...

My wife really enjoys heroes but she didn't really enjoy BSG... although she started watching more in the third season.

We now actively watch heroes and lost together. Heroes is my fave by far.

From my understanding (and it's been 10 years since I took a taxation course) CCA (Capital Cost Allowance?) is essentially depreciation expense... the more expense you have, the less tax you pay... so when you reduce the CCA you claim, your taxes should go up? It would make sense if the equation is ...
