I’d love to see it if I can get down to Orlando, but 5,000 square feet? That’s a lot of house.

But in case you haven’t heard, my wife and I and my brother-in law and sister-in law are moving to the family farm and resettling there.

Yes, the kids are coming too.

We’re building houses, but we’ll all be living in the old farmhouse during construction.

Hello?

The entire thing, here you go!

Via The Onion:

WASHINGTON—A bipartisan committee found the plan was a “super-easy” way to rake in cash, and has already borrowed supplies from Sen. Chuck Hagel’s brother-in-law.

Collis Ta’eed has put a really nice roundup of personal money management sites at FreelanceSwitch – The Freelance Blog:
“I’ve spent 28 years taking my own advice, and frankly it hasn’t gotten me very far. So it’s time to listen to someone else. Here are the best and brightest voices online on money matters:”

I’ve read some of these sites, but I’m intrigued by the others.
