    3. I have been called by some a "grandpa" on the road. They mean to say that most grandpas are old men, and most old men drive slowly. Well, I am not sure that is a logical argument, but I admit that I do drive slower than most. John presents Does cruise control actually save gas?.

    4. There is nothing wrong with being frugal, and saving money to improve your personal finance situation is a good thing. But, when it comes to eating out, I have to respectfully disagree with most of the frugal advice. In fact, I would go so far as to say that frugality while dining out is a contributing factor to some of the bad economic times. Matt presents Don't Be a Cheapskate While Dining Out.

    5. A review of the nation's top 10 online, high-yield savings accounts. From the article: "The rumors are true: savings account interest rates are at an all-time low. Just looking at big bank accounts, you might well think that your best course is the tried-and-true mattress method. The numbers would bear you out: as of February 21st, 2012, the national average is 0.10%. But don't give up on high-yield savings accounts just yet. You can earn up to 10 times the national average just by looking online." Laura Edgar presents NerdWallet's Top 10 High-Yield Savings Accounts for the Digital Age.

It is a very expensive city to live in, but I feel at home here. Am I a fool for staying here when I can't really afford it? Maybe, but I just can't see myself living anywhere else at this point in my life. Jeremy Biberdorf presents My Decision To Live In An Expensive City.
