Yes. I always found that a suitable lesson and punishment for misuse of my best shap kitchen knives was to shave my legs with his razor. The point was quickly driven home.

Today my sales tax reports were due. I went to the Revenu Québec website to file them online. It wouldn't recognize me. I know my username and password are correct. I can't remember them, so they are in Password Safe. I used Password safe to copy and paste username and password the last time I signed into their "ClicSéqur Express" website. Grrr. I'll have to phone them tomorrow and find out what's up.

I went to my biz banking site and filed the returns there. They charge me two dollars. They won't submit them until tomorrow, so they will be late. I shouldn't have to pay a penalty because I have refunds. I am not a happy camper.

What a pain taxy! The more "official" stuff I do online the more trouble it seems to be. Hope you argue your point against them and win in the morning. Good luck!

It was for St. Joseph Baby Aspirin. I can still see the blond towhead.

I was just about to go to the health food store and buy some leeks. I want to make some leek and potato soup. Then I remembered, my right wrist has a mild inflammation. I'm wearing my brace. I don't think it would be a good idea to slice all that leek. Phooey.

Good idea. I think I'll try that in a few days, when the wrist is better, but I don't want to strain it. There's still potatoes to peel, and that doesn't sound like such hot idea either, until the wrist gets a bit better.

Sorry you have to deal with that.
