It’s a sad year for my signature easter jello shooter recipe. I can’t find any colorful plastic eggs without tiny, jello leaking holes in them. I can only conclude this is some kind of safety feature designed to prevent me from drinking too much on Easter :(

Think managing your finances has to be complicated? Wonkblog contributor (and UC Chicago social scientist) Harold Pollack doesn’t.
After a talk with personal finance expert Helaine Olen, Pollack managed to write down pretty much everything you need to know on a 4x6 index card. And it would probably fit on a 3x5 index card if you really crammed (that last point, for instance, is probably not strictly necessary for managing your money).
He explains: The card came out of an RBC chat I had with Helaine Olen regarding what I view as the financial industry’s basic dilemma: The best investment advice fits on an index card. A commenter, Alex M, asked for the actual index card. Although I was originally speaking in metaphor, I grabbed a pen and one of my daughter’s note cards, scribbled this out in maybe three minutes, snapped a picture with my iPhone, and the rest was history.
Pollack’s right. Follow these principles and you’ll be in much, much, much better shape than most Americans — or most anyone. And all it will cost you is $2.20 for a pack of index cards — and you’ll have 99 of them left over.
It’s really hard to be poor (see Pollack’s amazing interview on how being poor changes the way people think for more on that). But the lesson here is that once you have an income that you can live off of and save a little bit besides, managing your finances shouldn’t be all that hard.
The people making it complicated are often trying to make money off of you. This 4×6 index card has all the financial advice you’ll ever need

This is so true, BUT. But but but.
Investing in a Vanguard 20XX fund takes $3,000 minimum. You can’t start without at least $3K in savings.
Maxing out your Roth IRA means investing $5,000/year. You can combine the two, and max out your Roth IRA while putting the IRA money in a Vanguard 20XX fund, but that’s still $5,000 you need in savings.
Plus you also need all your debts paid off, to max out your 401(k), and to be saving 20% of your income besides. 
This isn’t a “once you can save a little bit” plan. It’s a “once you have an income that pays all of your living expenses, plus 20%, plus the amount of your current debt.” (Or you can say “okay, an income that pays living expenses plus 20% plus enough to make significant monthly debt payments,” but the point stands either way.)

Kawah Putih Lake

Kawah Putih (English: White Crater) is a striking crater lake and tourist spot in a volcanic crater about 50 km south of Bandung in West Java in Indonesia.

It is one of the two craters that make up Mount Patuha, an andesitic stratovolcano (a ‘composite’ volcano). Mt. Patuha is one of numerous volcanoes in Java. Kawah Putih crater lake itself represents a relatively stable volcanic system with no records of significant activity since around 1600.

The Kawah Putih site was opened to visitors in 1987. The lake is 2,430 meters above sea level so the local climate is often quite chilly. This makes a brisk change from the humidity of the north Java plain and the capital city of Jakarta.

A sizeable, highly acid lake which changes color from bluish to whitish green, or brown, depending on the concentration of sulfur and the temperature or the oxidation state. 

The sand and rocks surrounding the lake have been also leached into whitish colors through interaction with the acidic lake waters (with possible mineral precipitation as well).”

Tiny furniture is a great way of making rooms look far larger than they actually are, and of creeping out anyone who enters your house.

Nia and I found this book in the library. There is no context, description, or listed author. Every page is a picture of Humphrey Bogart. The only words we could find were the title and the dedication.
