Funny Friday – VIP

Funny Friday – VIP

A long time has passed since I have posted a Funny Friday post and even that was a wrap-up and a farewell from the series. Then I stated that I will retire the series and will focus on creating single memes. As it turned out this is not working very well and recently I was reminded that once I have this periodical memes post which was funny. So I thought that I will put together an issue once more and…

Prepping for Non-Preppers 101

Let me present you the first guest post on this blog. I follow many blogs (not enough but still more than I should) but only a handful of them rise above the others because of the character, personality and/or writing style of the author. This first guest post was written by one of those three bloggers whom I adore because of their interesting writing style and special way of thinking about the things of this crazy world. If you still…

How to get over your financial hangover

How to get over your financial hangover

I have revealed some details about our current landscaping and “relawning” project. We made good progress so we thought we can have a day of rest and having fun. Some friends came over and we had a grill party. Recently, I acquired two bottles of homemade Rakia¬†(a spirit, which is very popular in my country) so we went on with some tasting. Long story short, we had a good time, but unfortunately, I lost my sanity and the night closed…

Coders of Finance – Abandoned Cubicle

Welcome back geeky FIRE seekers. It seems that we cannot leave the Twin Cities without having our other local fellow blogger featured in this series. He is Cubert who blogs over at AbandonedCubicle.com. As you will see (or as you know) he does not have a coder job but he works in IT, still had his share of coding back in the days. Featuring not only coders but anyone who works in IT was part of my initial plans, just…

Call the man or be the man

Call the man or be the man

The past two weeks were extremely busy in the [HCF] household and we are still looking forward a lot more to come. Maybe some of you noticed that I was AFK since Good Friday. Living in a country like Serbia while belonging to the largest minority group has its advantages and disadvantages. I was experiencing the former lately in the form of unexpected holidays. The vast majority of citizens are Eastern Orthodox Christians (~85%), and the second one are Catholics…

Coders of Finance – Budget On a Stick

Welcome back geeky FIRE seekers. This week I brought you geeky insights about another one of our fellow coder-bloggers, all the way from the Twin Cities. He goes with the alias Mr. BoaS and blogs over at www.budgetonastick.com. I love to read his insightful posts on… well, pretty much everything. He is more of a “man of numbers” than me, but we share a lot of interests besides coding. He also likes cooking, getting lost in his own mind¬†and tinkering…

Hitting the six months mark

Hitting the six months mark

To be totally honest I wasn’t sure if this day will come. But it did, so I can peacefully write it down: I am six months into blogging. Maybe it seems like not a big deal to you, but it is huge for me. I am a recovering procrastinator and a serial quitter. Back in last September when I published my first post¬†with trembling hands I was a total noob. Wrote a mini CMS before, just for fun (and for…
