Best of Blogs – It’s all new this week

Week one of RetireHappy.ca is over and the response has been wonderful.  Thanks to everyone for the great messages and words of encouragement.

We’ve still got a lot of work ahead as we continue to try to improve and enhance functionality and get over a few technical things but we’re rolling and moving forward.
