Health Insurance – Health Savings Accounts

September 12, 2009

In 2009 under President Obama’s administration, one of the most politically charged issues in the United States is health insurance and healthcare. One of the best health insurance programs that seemingly few people are aware of is the Health Savings Account (HSA). My family started an HSA in 2004 coupled with a high-deductible health insurance plan. Depending on your healthcare needs and investment risk tolerance, you can maintain the HSA funds in cash/money market or invest the funds in the equity markets through a HSA administrator. A good place to learn more about HSAs is the U.S. Department of Treasury’s website:

The Power of Social Networking

September 12, 2009

Due to the nature of my father’s job, through my senior year in high school my family moved about 15 times throughout the United States and around the world. I made good friends everywhere that we lived, but unfortunately, lost touch after we moved. Recently, through the power of social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and Linked In, I have reconnected with many old friends who I would not have been able to easily find without these wonderful websites. I would  like to say thanks to social networking websites for enabling me to reconnect! If you have not already, you should check out:
