Now, when the floor is poured in and hardened enough, contractors continued works. As usual, we spent these days in Jūrmala and communicated with contractors only via phone. I really love it. Next month we are planning to leave for Georgia, and I hope all will keep going as smooth. The only thing that concerns me - I have a little cash drag now, all funds are almost dried up and new ones are not yet coming in. The biggest problem I have a negative cash balance in the stock market and cannot take out my profit, Hope to solve this in coming months. Anyhow, here are the latest pics from the…

Published: seen 21

On December 3, 2020, we bought an additional 20 shares of Ares Capital Corporation (ARCC) paying $17.06 per share for my Mom's pension Fund.  With its quarterly dividend payout of 0.4 dollars per share, this latest buy has a dividend yield of 9.37% (before tax) and will pay us an additional $8.00 (before tax) every quarter. Awesome.

With the recent renovation works at Vilgale apt I'm facing a huge cash drag - all free money is spent and renovation is not close to the end. As I don't have many places left to look for cash I'm looking to take out some profits I've made in the stock market. As I have a negative cash balance there too, I cannot withdraw any funds yet. Which is a shame.  I got some issues with the contractors and had to replace them with new ones. As we are just looking to start our collaboration for this week I need some EUR 2,000 at least to get started with new renovation guys Negative cash balance March…

The White Dune is one of the landmarks of Saulkrasti, on the Vidzeme gulf coast. The dune offers a splendid view of the sea, the mouth of the Inčupe River and the vast beach. Probably, best visited in Summer, we made a short visit here in February 2021 The White Dune formed as the wind drove beach sand over the clay silt of Baltic Ice Lake. Its white 18 meters high sand outcrop once helped local fishermen find their way home. The dune got its name from its white, hardened layers of sand which look like sandstone. Baltic sea near Saulkrasti Landscaping has been conducted in the area, and the…
