Dear fellow investors, This summer was great, a little too great. Thinking all the way back to July makes me miss those hot summer days swimming at the beach. It was amazing to have the opportunity to spend some more time with family, on a short, but jam-packed holiday. We chose a vacation destination with […]Read more "Dividend Income Update July 2019"
Dear fellow investors, June was the official start of real summer. It was finally regularly warm enough to get all the warm weather stuff I get to use for 2-3 months of the year. Highlights of the month included: the Toronto Raptors’ first ever NBA title, something I still have a hard time believing given […]Read more "Dividend Income Update June 2019"
Dear fellow investors, April is my favourite month. The snow really disappears and you can spend a lot more time outside. I went on a few trips and enjoyed every day to the fullest.

They’re very rare and there was little warning. It really makes you appreciate how destructive and random these extreme weather events can be. This […]Read more "Dividend Income Update September 2018"

This might have something to do with not having to shovel a huge driveway. Getting more fresh air and sun definitely helps people like me who get […]Read more "Dividend Income Update April 2018"
Winter is finally over. Second winter is over. Third winter just started…while there is a lot less snow around it is still unusually cold. It was somewhat encouraging not to have an ice rink on my driveway, but it will be a lot nicer when patio season finally kicks in!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! This post is really late, but better late than never. February is usually one of the slowest month in terms of passive income for the portfolio. This was no exception in 2018. It will likely stay that way until I add more equities with monthly or quarterly payments that pay out in […]Read more "Dividend Income Update February 2018"
My October Watchlist post earlier this month mentioned that I would seek to initiate a position in a CAD industrial due to the poor CAD/USD exchange rate.
