This week I was stunned and saddened by the loss of Tom Masland, a very close personal friend of my family's, and all-around really good egg. Newsweek has links to some of his work...it's all good stuff even if it's not related to personal finance. This is just my little shout-out to a wonderful man who will be missed by all who knew him.
I just haven't felt like writing much.
So, I finally turned on our upstairs heat this afternoon. Temperatures were solidly below 60 in our house this morning and in fact our downstairs is currently 54 degrees.
And it's snowing.
I just couldn't bear the loss, the clouds *and* the cold.
