BOOK OF THE WEEK
Rich Dad Poor Dad
By Robert T. Kiyosaki with Sharon L. Lechter C.P.A.
This book came out in 1997. I feel it is as relevant today as it was decades ago. Like so many things, I don’t agree with everything in this book, but it does present things that you should think about.
Robert Kiyosaki reveals how he developed his unique economic perspective from his two fathers: his real father, who was highly educated but fiscally poor; and the father of his best friend – an eighth-grade drop-out who became a self-made multi-millionaire.
This book lays out his philosophy and aims to open readers eyes by: exploding the myth that you need to earn a high income to be rich; challenging the belief that your house is an asset; showing parents why they can’t rely on schools to teach their children about money; defining once and for all an asset versus a liability; and explaining what to teach your children about money for their future financial success.

MOVIE OR TV SHOW OF THE WEEK
I am now watching season three of this delightful Canadian (CBC) sitcom.
Take a minute to watch this trailer and see what you think.
MUSIC OF THE WEEK
I think this country western song has a few years on it, but I still enjoy watching this video. Some of you will also and some of you will think it is terrible. That is the way of things that aren’t bland.

ART OF THE WEEK
I can’t believe I actually own this painting. I saw it in Metro Times and went to the gallery displaying the painting. I had no idea at the time, I would be able to buy it; I just went to see it in person. As it turned, I was talking to the gallery about how much I liked it and they sold it to me.
Some Days I Remember Some Things I Forget
