Toxic Asset


Toxic Asset

A liability in an assets clothes.



I keep hearing this term in the media and I decided it was time it had a definition so that people can decipher what is being said, or hear what is not being said.

At the time of writing the top search in google for toxic asset is Yahoo! Answers where the "Best Answer" perfectly describes a liability and still fails to call it one- "Why would somebody pay for an asset that guarantees you will lose money?"- because it's a liability.

Parent & Partner

Being a parent on the one hand seems like a tough job, there's all this stuff you have to do and not do and there's this little person there who just completely depends on you and at the same time has a mind and a will of their own which doesn't always agree with yours even when you have their best interests at heart. On the other hand it's pretty simple, all you have to do is love them.

Being a (parent) partner also seems like a tough job. There is all this stuff you have to do and not do and there's this other person there who has a mind and a will of their own and... on the other hand it's pretty simple, all you have to do is love them.

Jasmine Rose is growing up at a rate of knots and she surprises and delights us every day. Being a parent and a partner might seem like a tough job sometimes but it's the most rewarding one I've ever had.
