The Other Three Legged Stool

Saturday, September 7th, 2013, by

In our last post we revisited the time honored tradition of sourcing your retirement income from three solid streams of funding. Today we look at the non financial aspect of your lifetime goals…your physical well being, and how it too can be strengthened by three distinct disciplines. The goal, simply put, is to tightly compress […]

Losing Weight: Lessons Learned

Friday, December 14th, 2012, by

In last weeks post I was caught bragging on myself about all the weight I’ve lost in the past year and a half.  The emphasis was on life style change, in particular adopting an exercise regime that suited my needs and interests. There are, of course, two necessary components in losing weight.  Exercise more…and eating […]

Losing Weight: An Eighteen Month Journey

Friday, December 7th, 2012, by

Mayor Bloomberg Takes on the Big Gulp

Monday, June 4th, 2012, by

So this is what happens when you have a mayor for life. Meaning, of course, Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York, whose latest crusade is his ban on oversized servings of sugary soft drinks. No doubt his intentions are honorable and his goals are admirable. But it tends to raise a larger question. Imagine living […]

Intelligence: The Third Link of the Nexus

Wednesday, May 16th, 2012, by

The underlying premise of this blog is the pervasive and persuasive linkage between health and wealth. It’s a positive correlation on full display in upper and upper middle income families. But there is a more fundamental element at work in this juncture, so obvious that it is easy to overlook. Not to mention its being […]
