    Thanks a lot for the mention. I posted an article titled “The Ultimate DRIP-folio” that I’d really like your input on. Basically I’m hoping to construct with readers and fellow investors what they would consider to be the best portfolio of DRIP/SPP eligible stocks for a dividend investor.

    Enjoy your weekend (I’ll be working).

    I used Visa and cash in Europe. Basically the same as here.

    Thanks for the mention! The idea of moving somewhere with lower living expenses to retire always seems more appealing to me during the winter than it does during the summer.
