A Random Fact about Aviation
Most planes flying internationally have their home country’s flag painted on or around their tails. Generally, the flag is facing the correct way round on the left (port) side, and backwards on the right (starboard) side. This is because that is how the flag would look if it were hoisted on a pole above the aeroplane during the flight.

What We Talked About This Week
Monday was all about the lessons learned and money-losing adventure that was MoneyPropeller.com in March.
On Wednesday, we interviewed Sarah about her amazing success freelancing. She earned $59,000 in her first year!
What Other People Talked About
Bridget shared her history of growing up poor, sorting things out for herself, and winning at life. Her takeaway is that if she can do it, you can do it too.
Nelson covers a topic that SO MANY people just don’t seem to get: Taxes are marginal. Higher taxes only apply to the extra money that you make, the rate stays the same on your existing earnings. If that confuses you, check out the article.
A Pretty Thing on Amazon
Money helps us live and enjoy life. Here’s something I wouldn’t mind owning:
The New York Times: 36 Hours 150 Weekends in the USA & Canada
It’s on my Amazon wish list, I might end up buying it for myself, to sit next to my Lonely Planet collection.
Your Turn: Linky Party!
What is a Linky Party? It’s a tool that lets you link up your posts, and check out other people’s posts. Friday #Jetfuel features a linky party that is open (accepting links) for one week, Friday to Friday, each week. Make sure to come back and link up each week!
This is basically a no-rules linky! Posts generally have to be related to money. The end.
(I do reserve the right to remove stuff, at my discretion.) If you do link up, we would appreciate a link back to us, so that more people can find the linky and discover all of the great information that is out there. Also, go check out other people’s links and comments. No one wins if no one gets clicks!
