And to think I'm jazzed about Wendy's restaurant offering Caesar salad as a side with their meal deals instead of fries. I got no couth.

If I am reading their website right, their Caesar salad is 530 calories and 32 g. of fat, though! That doesn't jazz me so much.

Nutrition Facts & Personalize It - Wendy's

Surely that includes the dressing, but then what is Caesar salad without the dressing? I hope I am wrong because it does sound like a really good deal.

As for the Wealth Collection, that is SO far off my radar....

I'm amused by their name dropping, especially Warren Buffett. His idea of LBYM puts most of us to shame.

Some years ago I heard Li Ka Shing give a very moving speech about his early life as an orphan in China, making and selling plastic flowers to passers by. He spoke of realizing that the value of what he sold was not material, but a moment of pleasure. I'm quite sure he is still looking for value in all his financial decisions. I'll bet this publication is screened by his personal assistant and goes in the recycling bin.

Note that they also quote Jane Austen: "A large income is the best recipe for happiness I have ever heard of." Way to go Jane!
