Buffett Beyond Value: Why Warren Buffett Looks to Growth and Management When Investing by Prem C. Jain ISBN: 978-0-470-46715-2

By now anyone who has read our reviews knows we read a great deal about Warren Buffett's investing style.

Buffett Beyond Value: Why Warren Buffett Looks to Growth and Management When Investing by Prem C. Jain helps would-be investors to learn a little more about how the Oracle of Omaha approaches investing.

Jain writes in an easy-to-understand style with many analogies to back up what he is trying to teach his readers.

We would love to read a book on investing written by Buffett.  Unfortunately, he has yet to write one. The next best thing is to read books written by people who have studied his ways and have tried to imitate his investments.

We would love to know how Buffett makes money if he buys stocks to hold forever, but doesn’t look for stocks that pay a dividend.

Five Star Review


The more we read about Buffett, the more we want to know. Buffett Beyond Value helps answer some of our many questions.  We give it all five stars.

Friendly Fill-Ins 18 May 2018


This is a fun meme co-hosted by 15 and Meowing and Four-Legged Furballs. Be sure to visit and join in the fun!

Friday_Fill-In_Badge


The following is a guest post.  This post does not necessarily reflect the views of Suzanne and David E. McClendon, Sr. or Manian Debil Productions.



Our daughter Maggie has a new blog for her furbaby Martha. You can find it at: https://marthasdailymews.wordpress.com/


Here are the fill-ins:

1. Happiness is sometimes elusive.

Some people in the many self-help books I have read say that you CHOOSE to be happy or not. I think that might be true in some cases.  However, sometimes things happen that cause us to be unhappy regardless of what we choose.

No one chooses to get sick.  No one chooses to be poor. Few people choose to lose a job, although some do.

We can find happiness in the little thing in life and smell the roses.  However, if a big ol’ rattler is in that rose bush, it can strike and we don’t normally choose that.  Suzanne would choose to take its picture if it would sit still long enough.


2. Ten years ago, we were working in a convenience store about 16 to 18 hours per day.

We had a lot more energy then.  Now, it is all I can do to make it from my easy chair that Suzanne done bought for me all the way to the little red car we have.


3. Faith and love are the best medicines.

The love of a good woman is like a tonic.  Suzanne makes me feel much better no matter how bad I feel.  God can cure all. I recently read the book Healing: Faith and Medicine: A Medical Professional’s Memoir of Healing and Dealing with Illness by Mark Davis  ISBN: 978-1-5127-9936-1. In this book, we see how the only way Davis made it is because of his faith.


4. Most people don’t know that I am secretly an egotistical narcissist.

Suzanne and our oldest daughter are empaths.  They can sense when someone is not telling the truth.  They can sense when someone is hurting. They can also sense when someone is pregnant before they even know themselves.

Years ago, we went to a church that was chock full of young married women.  Suzanne would sense they were pregnant and tell them. She was always right.  It got to a point that these women would actually run when they saw Suzanne coming their way.

Me, on the other hand, I have no freakin’ idea what is going on half the time.  I read my books, make my videos, and sometimes notice that there are others around me.


Have you noticed that reading and understanding what you read is a lost art?  There are so many people that read something and then really mess up the message.  Often times, the results show exactly how stupid we have become as a society.

Once I wrote a sign for a friend who has a convenience store.  He was going to have to close the store early for a few days. One man read the sign and said, “So, y’all fixin’ to close down?”

Over the past years, we have had relatives who we thought at least could read.  They read posts and/or emails and completely misunderstood the message in the post.  These were simple words. In one case, the relative to this day continues to show how ignorant they are.  I am not saying they are stupid, just they did not read the original email close enough and now still make ignorant comments about it.

BTW, there is a special shout out in the last Hammie Show.  We think you should take a look.



Our Marine needs your help.  Please see New York or Bust.



Have a great week, y’all.

Guest Post: Questions to ask before you commit your money

The following is a guest post.  This post does not necessarily reflect the views of Suzanne and David E. McClendon, Sr. or Manian Debil Productions.


Questions to ask before you commit your money
“I’ve spent 25 years investigating over 450 financial products and vehicles,” Pamela says. “I can tell you that, though these products were sparkly and seductive on paper, 99.9% of them didn’t stand up to scrutiny.”
To protect your family’s financial future, you need to get answers to at least a few basic questions before you (and your money) jump in:

  1. What is this product’s true track record over the long run? “Get performance figures verified by a third party, not claims in sales literature from sales literature.”

  1. What guarantees does this product or vehicle offer? “If the answer is ‘None,’ run for the hills – unless you’re a thrill-seeker who’s prepared to lose his or her shirt.”

  1. What fees are involved? “Even seemingly nominal fees can eat up much of your account value. According to the Department of Labor, fees of only 1% will devour 28% of your nest egg over 35 years, assuming a 7% annual return. But most people are paying more than 1% in fees in their 401(k)s, IRAs, and so on. The key is not to underestimate the long-term impact of fees, and to make sure you are aware of all fees you’re being charged.”

  1. Who is recommending this to you? “Does your advisor have some vested interest in getting you involved in certain financial products? (And if so, did she disclose it up front?) Even if you’re dealing with someone who is financially savvy, do they really know your particular needs and situation well enough to be advising you?”

“To protect yourself and your family, I urge you to do your own due diligence before jumping on the bandwagon of any financial vehicle or product,” Pamela says. She also recommends asking these overarching questions when considering any financial product or advice:

  • Will this advice or vehicle give me peace of mind and let me sleep at night?
  • Will it help me get where I want to go without taking unnecessary risk?
  • Will it allow me to be in charge of my money?

Pamela shares a time-tested saving strategy that allows people to answer yes to those three all-important questions. This method, known as Bank On Yourself, provides guaranteed growth, pays taxes in advance, and gives people access to their savings without restrictions or penalties whenever they need it. Most importantly, it allows people to know exactly how much money they will have upon retirement and every step of the way.
About the Author: Pamela Yellen is founder of Bank On Yourself, a financial investigator and the author of two New York Times best-selling books, including her latest, The Bank On Yourself Revolution: Fire Your Banker, Bypass Wall Street, and Take Control of Your Own Financial Future. Pamela investigated more than 450 financial strategies seeking an alternative to the risk and volatility of stocks and other investments, which led her to a time-tested, predictable method of growing wealth now used by more than 500,000 Americans.

Healing: Faith and Medicine: A Medical Professional’s Memoir of Healing and Dealing with Illness by Mark Davis ISBN: 978-1-5127-9936-1




Never before in our recollection have we read a book on faith that actually made cold chills run up and down our spines.  Healing: Faith and Medicine: A Medical Professional’s Memoir of Healing and Dealing with Illness by Mark Davis actually gave us goosebumps.

Davis talks about how possibly the reason we don’t see as many miracles in the United States of America today as we see in third world countries is because here we have more resources to rely on. Perhaps he is right.  However, here, families like us who are well below the poverty level, realize that miracles happen every day.

Five Star Review


This book is incredibly well-written and difficult to put down.  We give it all five stars. We know you will too.
