Mini Heat Wave Strikes Southern California!

Good lord what was I thinking. I made the mistake of complaining to my family in Seattle that I was missing the warm weather and I’ll be if God didn’t take notice.

We here in So. Cali are going through the first of I’m sure many heat waves, with temperatures rising to a hot 95+ yesterday today is looking even worse, some areas are expecting triple digits, all I can say is Oi, be careful what you wish for because you might just get it.

Having three kids (cats), I am leaving on an air conditioner so that they too can experience some balmy temperatures in doors like I do during my day at work. Ah… such is life of the cat.

Stay cool!

So It’s Tax Day!

So… it’s tax day, for all of us procrastinators out there, today is the day that we buck up and say well **** time to knuckle down and pay Uncle Sam.

This is the first time in years I have not asked for an extension, but I even filed a day early, you’ve got to love e-filing. I decided this was a year for change so I went out bought turbo tax, sat down with all my various information and muddled through my taxes.

Imagine my surprise… the pot of gold at the end of the tax season rainbow, known as a REFUND! Now my head is spinning on what I can do with this money, do I spend it on frivolous things that I’ve been dreaming about for years, do I spend it on investments with our stock market in the dumps or do I bank it and save it for a rainy day. The latter seems to be the way to go at the moment but at the moment these are all pipe dreams until the money is actually in my account, with the State of California handing out I.O.U.s and the federal government spending the money faster than we can say tax day, I say we don’t count our preverbal chickens until they hatch.

So, here is what I would suggest you do… get on the stick and file your taxes!

Happy Tax Day

Hippty Hoppity Easter Is Nearly Here!

It’s that time of year again, lent is nearly over and the Cadbury bunny is around the preverbal corner. It’s the time of year that we over indulge in racks of lamb, ham potato salad, boiled colored eggs and more candy than even Willy Wonka can produce with his staff of oompa loompas.

What is Easter to me you ask? To me Easter is when we celebrate the rising of Christ from the grave, to remind us that not all is lost in this world of ours. Bringing us new hope and renewed faith in that which is not tangible but surrounds us all the same.

In a world that is in an economic down turn, where people are losing their jobs, their homes and often time their faith in what is good. Easter brings about a renewed sense of hope.

So as your eating your deviled eggs and gorging on that rack of lamb, take a look around you and remember to thank the good lord above for our friends, family and all that we have.

Have a very Happy Easter!
