Pay down the mortgage or invest?
Pay down the mortgage or invest? In answering a question from a recent home buyer who seems to have a keen mind for personal finance, I say invest. This person recently bought a house with a down payment of more than 20 per cent, which means the cost of mortgage default insurance was avoided. In addition, this individual has enough of lahza emergency fund to cover a year’s expenses, plus future house and car maintenance. There’s also a travel fund to cover future vacations, and a small amount of money invested. Follow Rob Carrick on Twitter: @rcarrick

  1. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
