My Dividend Radar

Just as Air Traffic Controller tracks every incoming and outgoing airplane in his airspace or airport, I track my dividends as they come in for a landing into my account.

I have built a Dividend Payment Radar that helps me track every single payment from the moment it shows up on the radar (via company dividend announcement) till the time it lands into my account.

Never Ending Equifax Headache: A Fourth Credit Bureau?

Man, I thought I had it all covered after putting credit report locks across all three major credit bureaus (Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion) in the aftermath of Equifax security breach: How I am Protecting My Credit Report

Little did I know that there is a fourth and smaller US credit service bureau called Innovis that we also need to worry about in terms of locking/freezing our credit reports.

How I am Protecting My Credit Report

Today most Americans (about 143 million people) are waking up to the news of their personal information such as Social Security numbers, names, date-of-births, and in many instances driver's license numbers stolen from Equifax.

Equifax is one of the three credit information provider companies that collect and provide credit information to lenders such as credit card companies and banks. They are the ones who maintain our credit scores which then along with other personal information such as credit history is used to determine if we are worthy of a new loan or a credit card.

Our Utah Summer Vacation Part II

 Visitors taking a break from heat outside the Zion Lodge
I wanted to finish writing about our Summer Vacation Part II before the summer ends. Well, the summer has officially ended, and I'm a bit late posting part II, though better late than never. So, here it is.

BTW, if you missed Part I, you can read it here: Our Utah Summer Vacation Part I

For Part II of our summer vacation, we headed over to Zion National Park which is located in the South-Western part of the great state of Utah.
