I wish all readers a nice next week.      


  1. Thanks for the add on Twitter. I'm just starting in the dividend investing game. Have a goal of being financially independent when I reach my early to late 40's (it seems there are a lot of growth investors with that goal). I wish you luck in your journey and will be visiting your blog from time to time.
