About the Month of November

November is the 11th month of the year and has 30 days.
Season (Northern Hemisphere): Autumn

In the original Roman calendar, November was the ninth month of the year. It got its name from the Latin word "novem" which means nine. However, it became the eleventh month when the Romans added in January and February to the start of the year.

Throughout much of history, November has often been thought of as a somber month because it signaled the start of winter. People would spend the month storing up their harvest and preparing their food and homes in order to survive the winter.

Quote of the Month
 

 

A Laugh or Two For Good Measure!

Holiday Heavyweights

The checkout clerk at the supermarket was unusually cheerful  
even though it was near closing time. “You must have picked up  
a ton of groceries today,” a customer said to the checker.  

“How can you stay so pleasant?” 
“We can all count our blessings,” the clerk replied.
“The hardest part of this job is the turkeys and the watermelons.
I just thank God that Thanksgiving doesn’t come in July.”

Tollbooth Timer

I worked on a toll road, answering the phone,  
collecting money and issuing toll tickets. 

One Thanksgiving Day, a woman called to ask about road conditions  
on the turnpike. After I said everything was A-okay,  
she told me a friend was coming for dinner. Then came the stumper.

“If my friend just left from exit twelve,” she asked,  
“what time should I put the turkey in?”

Capital Gains

      

One of the ‘pleasant’ dilemmas that my investor
partners face when we cash out of a deal is what
to do with their PROFITS.

On one hand, it’s tempting to take the cash and
buy a new car, boat, vacation, or other ‘doodad’
(as Robert Kiyosaki calls them in his book Rich
Dad, Poor Dad).

On the other hand, it usually makes a LOT more
sense to use those profits to buy more income-
producing real estate.  That’s called “re-investment”.
