Carson once interviewed Andrew Tobias, who was giving personal financial advice. Johnny asked: “What’s the best investment for someone who has only $1,000?”

Tobias said, “Nonperishable consumer staples.” – if you purchase nonperishables when they are on sale, the return on investment is enormous.

*Investing isn’t only about stocks and bonds but a mind-set for making sense of all your purchases.

Research to find nonperishables that are on sale (The Dollar Store is a good place to start). Invest $1000 in these.

You better listen, better do as you’re told
You haven’t even touched your tuna casserole
You better chow down, or it’s gonna get cold
So eat it.

When Al approached Michael Jackson about parodying “Beat It”, he wasn’t sure what to expect. Happily, Jackson okayed the song and found it amusing.

*Listen to Weird Al Yankovic’s classics while making tuna casserole – and then you better chow down or it’s gonna get cold.

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
