What is hump day? It’s Wednesday. The hump to your work week. 2 days down and 2 days to go. On hump days I will be sharing articles, videos, or other form of entertainment. It will include links to other posts I have liked throughout the week. Some are parenting articles, others are personal finance ones, and occasionally there will be a random funny article. Enjoy!
On this Hump Day in history
Ok I think today’s historical fact is pretty awesome. In 1660 the first kosher butcher, a man named Asser Levy, was licensed in New Amsterdam (now known as New York City. I am not sure if we should thank him for introducing the kosher deli to NYC, but I do think we should thank him and anyone else involved in introducing the kosher deli to NYC….
Interestingly he was also the first Jewish person to own a home in North America. That is pretty amazing. This guy rocked! He also donated money to build the first Lutheran Church in New York City…craziness.
So here is to you Mr. Asser Levy. A man of much talents. Check out the man’s Wikipedia page.
Great hump day articles
Ok now for some good reads.
First off we have the one the only White Coat Investor talking about 15 ways to make more money in medicine. #1 sounds less fun for me then #3….actually welcome to my number 3 and please keep reading. He also had a good post about a budget without payments and it sounds like a good deal. I am about to be debt free except for my mortgage thanks to some insurance money, but would love to actually have no debt.
Speaking of insurance checks, my well-being index is pretty low post- fire. I do not exercise, eat poorly, and my sleep has been off for weeks. My Curiosity Lab made me well aware of this with his recent post on What is your well-being index. Time for me to get back into my normal habits.
One thing that may or may not help well-being is having another baby. We are most certainly not having another child in the near future, but J Money and his wife at Budget’s are Sexy are having numero tres. So kudos to them. You can read all about it here.
I am not sure if Donald Trump’s tax cuts will also improve my well-being, but I am always interested in knowing what makes this man tick. The Wall Street Physician gave us a pretty good profile here.
Some may regret his election, others may regret leaving clinical medicine. Physician on Fire is unlikely to feel that way, but he recently talked to a nice man who wished he had pursued medicine instead of policery (is that even a word. As for me, I will keep one foot in and one foot out on my way out…seems like the safe plan.
Well there you have it. Another hump day comes and goes. I can’t believe it is Thanksgiving next week. Expect the second annual Grateful post, and man do I have a lot to be grateful for. For instance you readers. Thanks for reading and have a great end of the week!
