The Three Investigators

Thanks to the Jupiter Jones look-alike, I was reminded to the Three Investigators. Believe it or not, even though the title of the series was "Alfred Hitchcock and the Three Investigators", Alfred Hitchcock was NOT the author. What a big surprise!

Anyway, I went and bid for a lot of 30 Three Investigators books. I haven't read them in a loooooong time (and never in English before), so I'm sure I will be enjoying these books very much. I still remember the terror I felt when I first read "The Terror Castle" book (the first in the series). Hopefully I won't be feeling that scared now that I am all grown up. ^_^

Amigurumi: Single Pea and Deadly Cute Ninja

I think I was bitten by the craft bugs. Here's my next creation: the single pea (because making 3 of them in solid green is just too much for my eyes) and the deadly but cute ninja. Chris called them Peany and Ninji. Peany, Dora, Ninji, and Mushy posing together It's hard to see from this photo, but Ninji actually has a sling (in a slightly different color) around his body, and a mini ninja star. And talk about proportion... the vegetables are larger than the cat and the person. Makes you wonder, isn't it?

Tax-Free Saving Account in ING DIRECT

A while back, the government of Canada suddenly realized that Canadians did not save their money as much as they hoped. So, to goad Canadians into saving, they introduced the Tax-Free Saving Account (TFSA) that basically allows up to $5,000 per year contribution to grow tax-free. How the TFSA Works Starting in 2009, Canadians aged 18 and older can save up to $5,000 every year in a TFSA. Contributions to a TFSA will not be deductible for income tax purposes but investment income, including capital gains , earned in a TFSA will not be taxed , even when withdrawn. Unused TFSA contribution room can be carried forward to future years. You can withdraw funds from the TFSA at any time for any purpose. The amount withdrawn can be put back in the TFSA at a later date without reducing your contribution room. Neither income earned in a TFSA nor withdrawals
