Say hello to the new plastic $20 bill from the Bank of Canada. These will start to replace the current paper $20 bank notes starting from tomorrow, Nov 7th. I think they are quite nice to look at (o_o) I really appreciate how our currency is color coded, no offence to those who are color blind :S
Last month was pretty normal in terms of my finances. I sold some more stocks to try and get to at least $20,000 in liquid cash so I can take advantage of any good investment opportunities. I need to update my dividend progress soon because haven’t done that in awhile.

Started the year with about $102,000 in net worth. Still 2 months left until the end of 2012. Hope to make it to $140,000 by then if the stock market does well. Big election today for our neighbor to the south. There’s a lot of noise and speculation about what’s going to happen, but I think we all know who’s going to win today (^_^;)
