I feel obligated to mention that your government may not approve of you stopping by here to peruse the blog entries regarding GUNS. This here Internet thing is not about freedom for any of us; the Internet is about amassing unimaginable wealth for corporate giants. Insofar as governments, foreign or domestic, the Internet is all about surveillance and control. No matter where any of us choose to surf the web, there are always sharks in the water.


NOTICE: To all y'all,

The year 2017 has been and will continue to be extraordinarily CHALLENGING and BUSY for me. Blog entries will likely be even more infrequent than usual until all projects and issues are completed or resolved.

Thanks for stopping by. I really do appreciated it.

Best wishes,

As usual, no tax refund for me

.

Yesterday I made my annual visit to have our taxes done by an old friend. I suppose I could do my own taxes, but Kenny has done them for years and I like continuity in my life. He is a rare bird, a professional tax-guy unaffiliated with any of the major tax-outfits. His office is in the small town where I grew up, making my tax-day a sentimental journey.

I do not like getting income tax refunds because I am a hardheaded old coot who does not like giving interest-free-loans to the government; I would rather under-pay my taxes during the year than over-pay. I will be sending a sizeable check to the Feds, but out of principal, I will wait until it is a little closer to the deadline.

HA! Me too! I always owe the state of Kentucky every year (it’s usually $5-6 dollars) and I always make sure the check isn’t put in the box until April 14th!
