Father: Son, what are your results in the end of term examination?
Father: What do you mean, underwater?
Son: Below ""C"" level."
Hope you are energized enough for the coming week.

Hello and welcome. I’m “nickel”, and I’m the guy who runs this place. I’m a thirty-something family man with a loving wife and four wonderful kids. I’ve been sharing my thoughts on various topics related to money and finance here on FiveCentNickel since May 1, 2005.
While my wife and I have always been pretty good with money, things really clicked for me back in 1997 when we decided to start a family. At the time, I was reading a book called “Time is Money” and the underlying message really resonated with me.
