Link Love (Fiscal Zen, Distilled Rose, Bullish Bankers Posts, My Good Cents, No Spend Zone, The Passive Dad, Everyday Finance & Dual Income No Kids)

I take great pleasure in reviewing posts from my blogroll. Without further adieu, here's my recommendations:

Fiscal Zen: Free MIT online courses. I've known about this for a while, but have not made the time to take any classes.

Distilled Rose: Growing Basil at home. My wife and I grow basil, parsley, thyme, green onion, cilantro, mint and lettuce on our apartment balcony.

Bullish Bankers: Posting on Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) stock. This is one of my favorite DRIPs. I recently restarted my monthly allotments for 3M (MMM), Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Dow Chemical (DOW). I periodically add to my JNJ position about 3 or so times a year.

My Good Cents: Thrifty Rental Car Sweepstakes through 30 Oct.

No Spend Zone: Article about the cost of Christmas tree shopping plus great video of ornamental house lighting.

The Passive Dad: Great article about renting out your garage. Most applicable for large city dwellers.

Everyday Finance: Considering setting up a home solar system? I was planning on writing about this, but Everyday Finance beat me to it. Check out the article.

Dual Income No Kids: Great article about the next bubble... I recently posted about the Energy Infrastructure bubble. This is a long range bubble that is just starting to grow. Of more immediate concern is the credit card bubble.
