I got BlogRolling going today
I got it setup pretty easily and entered some favorite sites, both blogs and web sites. I wish they opened in a separate window but I suppose most users will figure out that they need to use their "Back" button to return. Now I have some more software to figure out how to use.
My mail came today from Escapees RV Club. They shipped it Thursday & I hoped it would arrive Saturday, especially since there was no mail delivery service yesterday due to it being a National holiday. I haven't read through all of it yet but I believe I now have what I need to finalize my income taxes. I will submit them electronically and it looks like I'll get back about as much this year as we had to pay last year. It has been a challenge to try to figure out how much money I should have withheld for taxes from Annie & my various sources of income. Just as I thought it was making sense, Annie died and that has thrown it into turmoil again. I will run an estimated return with the 2005 software to try to get an idea where I will be in a year. I like to get a small amount back but don't want to loan the government too much since it doesn't earn anything while they have it.
Finally a little after 16:00 I realized I had basically worked on the PC all day and forgotten to stop for lunch! I also needed a mocha, so drove to Zodiak for the mocha, then a Mexican restaurant I've never eaten in called Don Quiote and had dinner. Or would it be called lunner, combining lunch & dinner? Anyway it was good.
I am now watching TV (I remembered NCIS this week!) and am again playing on the PC. I still have mail to sort through and will try to get that done tonight. I have no plans yet for tomorrow but am sure something will happen. Later.
Hope you have a good day tomorrow Dick, and good luck with your taxes, it's always a pain in the patootie, but I remember the year my late husband passed away, it was suddenly a lot more complicated.

Good luck with your taxes ... they are a real pain to prepare, aren't they. Ours are always due on the 1st July, so I still have a few months !! Have a great day, take care, Meow
Good luck on the taxes. I should have all my paperwork by Friday and be able to start my tax return too.
Is it time for a mocha yet? I hear one calling our names.
Keep smilin - hugs, love and prayers.
