BMW 528i with xDrive

Sometimes my wife and I don’t see eye to eye. Such is the case when it comes to automobiles.
To her, a car is just a mode of transportation—a way to get from point A to point B. To me, a car is not just a way to get down the road, but rather a vehicle for excitement. I love to drive. In my 20s I owned a silver sports car that I drove whenever I had a spare moment. Twenty years and two kids later, I find myself driving an SUV.

Sheepdogs and Whisky

1

I’ve long wished to visit Scotland, to experience the culture and to see up close the ruggedly beautiful countryside and volcanic mountains such as Ben Nevis and Glen Coe. Oh yes, and to sample the whisky.
Last fall my wife and I took a weeklong group tour of Scotland, and it was a low-stress, easy way to get acquainted with the country. Bus tours have their drawbacks — you can’t deviate far from the tour itinerary and schedule — but they are also appealing because everything is pre-arranged. Luggage is picked up and delivered to your room each day, many meals are included and there is very little time spent waiting in line at attractions because tours get preference.

Your experience with investing is simple; everyone makes money on your money except you. And you are convinced this is the way it has to be. Wall Street has its hands in everything; your savings, your investments, your financial security, and your goals. But everyone tells you that you must invest the way you do and hope the result will be different. This is insanity.
