A Timely Recommendation From Santa Claus

Camping Tip Of The Day

Alternatives to Traditional Camping Flashlights

Print out just about any camping checklist on the Web and you'll find flashlights or some kind of camp lights on the list. Even if you build a roaring fire, there are still reasons to carry camp lights with you when you go camping. First, they're handy on dark nights. If you have to make a nature call in the middle of the night, a camp light can help lead the way and make sure you don't stumble over a patch of poison ivy in the dark. Children can use them to read, color, or play before they go to sleep, and they're essential for shadow puppet shows inside the tent! So, even if you don't think you'll need a camp light or two, it's better to add them to your camping checklist and include them in your essential camping gear. For more Camping tips, visit

Santa recommends banks, not money market funds. Park your money in a safe (FDIC insured) bank instead of a money market fund (which is not guaranteed).

Keep in mind: money market funds actually fluctuate in price, but the companies add money to make up for deviations… at least for the moment. Money market funds are actually very short term bond funds. Bonds can, and do, go down. If rates rise, it could get nasty. A few years ago, a major money market fund “broke the buck” and lost savers millions.

Capital One, a U.S. based bank, features:

  • Higher yields.
  • Safety (FDIC insured)
  • No minimum balance.
  • NO fees.
  • Join millions of savers in seconds.

Money market funds are ultimately going to “float” their NAV (share price), “breaking the buck”, to the chagrin of millions. Don’t tumble down that slippery slope.

Try Capital One without any risk.


Ho, ho, ho!
