An inheritance is sometimes called a “legacy,” and receiving one can be a blessing – or a curse. One the one hand, there is the temptation to think like a lottery winner and imagine a life of easy indulgence. On the other, there is the instinct to do the “right thing” by paying off debts, investing wisely, and saving for the future. The fact that many lottery winners ultimately file for bankruptcy should be sufficiently instructive as to which course you should take.

Staying Diversified

Before money can be invested, the wise investor must believe in this crucial concept: don’t put all of your eggs in one basket. Asset allocation is the art of balancing risk and reward through the diversification of your investments into appropriate asset classes. It’s one instrument that helps to determine the appropriate blend between fixed and equity assets. It helps to smooth out the peaks and valleys that you find in the more volatile portfolio.

Claws or De-claws?

That is the question...

With our new kitten Liza in the house, Violet has had to make some adjustments. The relationship between Violet and Liza is quite interesting. At times, there is the beginning stages of playing and enjoyment, but largely it is still adversarial. They stare each other down waiting to see who will back down first. Happily, this has not turned into anything more than a game of chicken. Fingers crossed, there’s been no actual physical fighting. Violet is strong of mind and of will, avoiding physical confrontation with Liza is well played on her part for a very important reason: Liza has something that Violet does not … claws. The claws are retractable but can easily come out given the right situation. They can also cause considerable damage to another animal’s skin, ears, eyes. Claws are a powerful weapon.

Hey there! I heard you’re looking for a sweet, handsome, fun, playful pup to add to your life. Well, lucky you. Here I am! My name is Bubs. I am a big guy with a big heart. I love to go for long walks and get lots of attention. Kisses, cuddles, pets, you name it – I’m in! I’m also super smart, I know the commands sit, paw, and lay down. I do this super cute thing where I like to put my paws on your shoulders to give you a hug and a big smooch, too. In my previous home, I lived with kids and a small dog. Come out to the Baltimore Humane Society and visit me. I promise you will fall instantly in love
