Despite February being a short month, it went by pretty slowly. Maybe it’s the cold gray skies and all that snow. But it’s another month closer to Spring and there’s warmer weather ahead. The Bare Naked Ladies are touring this summer so we bought tickets and that’s something to look forward to. I also received some good news as I received a bonus from work this month plus a higher salary starting next month.
This isn’t really related to dividends or FI, but it’s a really useful (and I think little known) feature in Excel 2013 that I’ve been using a lot when working with the UK Dividend List.

I’ve updated the UK Dividends Champions List for February 2015. The 25-Year Dividend Champions club gained a new member and now has a total of 7 companies! There are also 5 new Contenders with dividend growth history ranging from 5 to 20 years. Read about the changes below.
It’s hard to believe that January has come and gone already, but it has. It’s been a cold month too – a couple of days it was 6 degrees F (-14 C) as I drove to work. I’m not able to process temperatures that cold – I mean six degrees … really? That’s not a temperature, it’s a shoe size! Anyway it’s another month closer to summer and it’s time to see if Financial Independence is another month closer too.
