Boston Gal (see her link to the right under "Personal Finance Blogs I Read") refers today's readers to something called "The Pudding Index." Apparently it measures where you are financially with where you should be, in terms of retirement savings. The idea is to score around 100.
Boston Gal's score is 104.
Mine is 43.
Hmm--definitely something wrong with this picture!
