I received Bob Rankin’s Newsletter today. It concerned Taxes.

He was writing about free computer programs that get you an eFile and how easy some of the programs are to confuse with each other. The hook, of course, is they are FREE programs with restrictions.

There’s little point, to me, in the programs, other than mild interest in the progression of the computer into our lives and how the government accepts these inovations.

Thinking of taxes reminded me I need to get on with mine. That means I need to hook up the printer. It hasn’t been used for a couple of years, now, and I’m certain to almost sure the ink has dried out and the whole system probably needs to be replaced.

Which is not a good thing. Almost as bad as this:

Scammers hit Wichita brokerage firm for $270k

KWCH
– ‎8 minutes ago‎

A Wichita brokerage firm is working to recover nearly $100,000. Wichita Police say they fell victim to a scam. The firm was contacted by email by someone they believed was a client requesting money transfers.

How’d I manage to tie computers, taxes and fishing together? Easy.

I was watching FNC when they started covering the Democratic candidate caucus in Las Vegas. Five minutes before the doors opened they had a computer malfunction.

Now that Parr ells is, of course, the Ohio computer malfunction during the elections back a few years, the mistake  printing of ballots in a presidential election in the nineties and etc., as the Democrats are so clever with finding boxes of ballots in car trunks during close elections.

Which I think, means that Cruz is, at heart, a Democrat. Studied, perhaps, at the feet of Pelosi and Reed. Just win, Baby. Never mind the rest of it, they’ll forget soon enough.

It’s cloudy, cool, and it is probably affecting my mental machinery. I mean, I’m usually cheerfully pessimistic. Probably because I need to go shopping and that means spending moey, which makes me doubly sad.

I hate to spend money. And I hate to shop. Sigh.

Life’s tough.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
