November is a chance to reflect and remember our veterans and the sacrifices they have made for the freedoms we tend to take for granted. With each passing year it seems to be easier and easier to forget about the world wars from the last century. That’s probably because there are very few surviving veterans left from that time. My mom was a child during the war, and I grew up hearing stories about the ‘war years’, but it always seemed like ancient history to me. Fortunately I had the opportunity to get to know a few vets and hear some of their stories. I became interested in history and read a fair amount about it. One thing I’m sure of. If it wasn’t for the sacrifices our vets made, this world would be a far far different place today – and NOT in a good way. Modern vets may not have fought in such ‘romantized’ wars, however they went into battle and were prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice for a cause they believed in… our security and our freedom. We may not always agree with the politics behind the wars that our soldiers are sent to fight in, but I think we should always support the soldiers themselves. They do a job that few of us would be able to handle.
About the month of November:
November is the eleventh month of the year in the Gregorian Calendar and one of four Gregorian months with the length of 30 days. November retained its name (from the Latin novem meaning “nine”) when January and February were added to the Roman calendar.
November is a month of spring in the Southern Hemisphere and autumn in the Northern Hemisphere. Therefore November in the Southern Hemisphere is the seasonal equivalent of May in the Northern Hemisphere and vice versa.
November starts on the same day of the week as February in common years, and March every year. November ends on the same day of the week as August every year.”

Helpful Life Hacks & Cartoon of The Month
How would you like an investment where not only can you make a great return on your money, but you also pay less taxes on your profits? That’s what happens with real estate. When it comes to the capital gains you make on your properties, you are only charged tax on ½ of it. Compare that to interest you generate in a savings account… first of all, it’s miniscule and secondly, you are going to get whacked with taxes on the full amount that you earned
