To be fair, my BUPA policy number is a legitimate looking British phone number (it's a digit short though). However, dialing it did not get me the results I desired.

Better not deposit more than $10k in a US bank... you could get in trouble with the IRS. Better not deposit less than $10k in a US bank... you could get in trouble with the IRS.

Um, what?

Yeah. Read the story.

I thought turning 10 on a fishing trip was awesome. Turning 40 with my newborn son on my chest is infinitely better.

This is not surprising. I was lucky this year, but paying taxes twice is most unpleasant. It's moreson when you stop & think about what they actually do with the taxes, and then stop & think about the $18 TRILLION debt. That's not even including unfunded liabilities like Social Security.

Dear #oldmedia  - if you have a story behind a paywall, I can pop the headline into Google (or any other search engine) and get the entire thing free. This will never change. Get with the times.

Apparently, "undermining British values" (what are those, and who determines that?) will be targeted with new rules (similar to ASBOs) under the new Conservative government.

Retiring by 40: Passive Income Development -- Challenges #earlyretirement #passiveincomedevelopment

I did my SWOT analysis last night, and mentioned my goal here. There were a couple of things though that don’t represent weaknesses or threats that will be a challenge to developing passive income. These are the first few images for “passive income” on…

Dear recruiters/head hunters: if you have to call pretending to be from a bank, you're not doing your job well. It might get you in the door for the first phone call, but the fact that you lied off the bat is not a good way to start.

Home flippers in the housing market are now getting their credit from PE firms, and flipping to each other, while those PE firms collateralise the loans.

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-05-08/home-flipping-profits-hit-record-wall-street-drives-speculation-again

You can't make this stuff up.
There's never been a better time to be a home flipper. Not only are average returns at all-time highs (you can double your money in Baltimore), you can even obtain cheap financing from Wall Street as opposed to dealing with pesky local banks. Better still, there's a very good chance you won't have to deal with annoying aspiring homeowners because according to RealtyTrac, the percentage of flipped homes sold to other "investors" is at a four-year ...

(I also posted this review to Trip Advisor.) This has to be one of the best kept secrets in Limassol. Slightly tucked away off the main road across from the Four Seasons hotel, this place looks unassuming from the outside. Blended in with the dozens of other local eateries, it quickly stands out once you start eating. My wife and I went in February, so we had the place to ourselves for the most part. The kitchen was staffed by an older gentleman (presumably the proprietor) and a younger man (presumably his son). The menu was the first evidence that this is a quality establishment - instead of a slapdash listing of food like many places on the island, it was a well-bound thick book with Greek and English, and pictures where appropriate. We had hummus with pita bread and garlic bread as appetizers. The garlic bread was crisp and delicious, and slightly burnt around the edges to maximise the flavour. The pita bread was the perfect warm temperature, and contrasted with the colder hummus quite nicely. The hummus itself had just the right amounts of olive oil and paprika, and held its own aside from the bread. My wife's fish soup was delicious, with the fish complemented highly with the choice of vegetables, in a well-rounded flavour profile that my wife thoroughly enjoyed. I had the dolames, which is shredded pork and rice wrapped in vine leaves and cooked in a hearty tomato sauce, which came with a plate of vegetables (salad-like, but more than salad) and potato wedges. It's tough to describe the flavour combinations that were evoked with the dolames, except to say that I don't know that I've ever had all the parts of my tongue working together like that before. There was a tzatziki sauce on the side that somehow made it even better (adding to the texture and muting the temperature just a bit in a good way) and it was simpy fantastic, insofar as words are inadequate to do the experience justice. On asking for the bill, we were given complimentary galaktoboureko, a sweet dessert which neither of us had room for until we actually tried the first bite. Suddenly, we found the room, and the plates were both empty in a couple of minutes. We both wholeheartedly recommend this place!

Moving to the UK from the States was far easier than it would have otherwise been without Foxtons. The ability to do everything online meant that other than seeing the property I could do everything without having to travel overseas (and this included documents & fees). Their service was helpful and friendly, and I recommend them highly!
