Hump Day – May 10th, 2017

Hump Day – May 10th, 2017

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 date

In 1955 on this date Jonas Salk successfully tested the first Polio vaccine. At the time Polio was the biggest public-health problem in post-war US. This changed the course of US many people’s lives. Amazingly when asked who owned the patent he said: “There is no patent. Could you patent the sun?” (courtesy of OnThisDay.com).

Hump day funniness and parenting

Thank you Ludacris for rapping Llama Llama. This is incredible. If you are familiar with the Llama Llama books please check this out. It is hilarious and can be seen here.

Hump day posts

Here are some great posts from the last few weeks.

An idea I can get behind, Rutger Bregman discusses how working less could solve all our problems. After 1 week straight of being on call and multiple times having to go into the ER at night, this is true.

Dr. Mo discusses the risk of practicing medicine. There are lot’s of reasons why medicine is a risk career and why all health care workers should have malpractice insurance and a good umbrella policy.  So go get you some insurance.

Finally, Millennial Legacy covers How much house you can afford? We all tend to take on more then we need and more than we may want. Take a look at this article. At the end of the day only you know how much home to take on.

What if you and your partner are not on the same financial page? Well it may be time to slowly convince them to see it your way. The Finance Patriot discusses how to Find your frugal compromise without destroying your relationship. Since money is one of the biggest stressors in a relationship this is as important issue to figure out.

Final thoughts

The year is flying by. It is already May and summer is coming upon us. I look forward to hiking now that the rainy season is done. What are your plans for the summer? Any travels?

    Happy Hump Day to all! Wow, time flies. No travel plans this summer for me; I just started a new job, which means several months of hard work. 😉

      Thanks! Happy hump day too. My new job (almost a year) also works on accrual of time off (first time I had had to do that). It makes for some planning, but I guess it is good to put the face time in early. Hope the job is going well!

    Hi, great compilation and thanks for pointing out that Ludacris video.

    I did want to point out that your Title accidentally says “April 10th” instead of “May 10th”.

    I wouldn’t ordinarily mention a minor typo, but because it’s the first article at the top, it made me mistakenly think you hadn’t written anything new in a month.

    Thanks!
