Sound personal finance blog

Sound personal finance blog

This blog is by a CPA friend of mine.  If you’re looking to improve your personal savings, Brent’s posts are clear, concise, easy to understand, and easy to follow (well, sure, they take discipline, but any improvement does).


Make the Homeless Smile

Another video on the same theme (well, visually at least) as the one I posted three weeks ago.

8 facts you need to know about your feelings

Some useful thoughts on the influence our emotions have on us, and we on them (see number 5).


Universal Languages?

Some say math and music are universal languages. This video is in Russian. I don’t understand Russian, so I don’t understand the words to the song. There are no mathematical equations in the video. But, provided the song matches the video, somehow I think I understand what is being said. It seems to fit really well with this proverb from the Old Testament book of Proverbs, as well as with this passage from the Book of Mormon. If anyone who understands the lyrics would like to enlighten me as to whether they match the video, I’d be grateful.

Based on what I see, I’d say love (in this case, charity as the Romans called it; agape to the Greeks) is the most universal language.
