Financial Concepts Explained :D


"The best thing to do with your money is to diversify. Now, what we're going to do is take half of it and bury it in an old pickle jar in the backyard. The other half, we'll take to the dog races and bet on the one who does his 'business' before the race."
~ Jeff Foxworthy

I'm beginning to think this is the only concept I can truly understand.

There's no need to complicate, our time is short..

A pickle jar might be a little to big these days.....maybe just use an empty aspirin bottle instead. It's more likely the right size for what money some folks still have left, plus they most likely have several empty aspirin bottles laying around after all the financial headaches of the past weeks months.

how about a good ol' fashioned mayonnaise jar?

i recently learned from my AARP newsletter that Jeff Foxworthy and I share the exact same birthday, i.e. in the same year. the planetary and lunar positions were aligned that day.
