I don't think it's a sissy sport either, I've just heard Rugby is really rough.

I've been working on tax returns for 2008-2012. Finished them today and printed the Quebec returns. The client had a demand letter from Revenue Quebec. I'll print the federal returns and assemble the client copies sometime this week.

This turned into a nightmare task. My laptop's monitor quit working. Eventually I figured out to bring it downstairs and attach the monitor on my desk. I had to hang some fabric over the laptop's monitor because it's blinking/flashing. I have to peer over the top of it to see the monitor that works. Then, when I started printing, I kept getting paper jams. I had to shred at least 10 wrinkly sheets and throw away another 10 or so blank sheets. Some were wrinkly, some were torn, a few more can be used as scratch paper. Then when it was all printed, my electric stapler started acting up and now it won't staple at all. Aargh.

I was rushing to finish my GST & QST (sales taxes) reports for the 3rd quarter of 2014. They are due the last day of the month following the end of the quarter. Today, Tuesday is the last day of the quarter. They aren't due for another month. Well, they are pretty much finished now. I'll file them online some time this week.

that sucks, taxy. i'm glad i hated accounting (or being accountable) in college.

i just finished trying to save the west coast feed of "scorpion".

it was programmed wrong, so the ratings came up after a commercial in the middle of the show. if the supv. hadn't noticed that, the second half of the show at 1 am est would have been downcut to the next show.

Thanks, Bucky, for thinking of us West Coasters. That isn't on a Canadian channel at the same time so we get your West Coast feed.

That would have been bad, the last part of the show was wonderful!

Woke up with a rotten cold this morning. After peeling a terrorist kitten off my leg, I went to make my grandmother's cold recipe: One part honey, one part lemon juice, and one part whiskey.

The stuff really works; you might still have a cold, but you don't care!

Cleaning out mine and grandsons closets. Can't believe how many shirts Josh has outgrown this summer. Just got him some new jeans last week he went from size 10 to a 14. Same with his socks, can't buy them in the boys section anymore. Wish they had a boys teen department like they do for girls.

Would I be able to take those cardiology quizzes? Or is it just for medical personnel? I think I know a lot about cardiology since I have had so many issues.

Addie, my husband finds money all the time. If he sees who dropped it, he gives it back. One time we were walking around in Sears. He looked down and saw what he thought was a $20 bill folded up. He picked it up and it was 2 $20 bills. He looked around to see if someone was frantically looking for their money but no one was. That day we went home with more money than we brought.

Another time I was walking through the casino and saw a $20 bill on the floor. I think the rule is anything on the floor belongs to the casino. I kept walking, but just swooped down and picked it up as I walked by. If you ask if someone lost it, everyone will say it's theirs. The casino got it in the end. LOL
