My Career as a Street Performer

Started & ended last night. Passing by the pit after dinner we paused to watch a chap in a green kilt with a unicycle and juggling act. The little pup spotted some of her friends, so we were stuck.

Then I got drafted as backup dancer/bagpipe holder.

Fortunately, the other 2 draftees were capable of holding the unicycle.

A blustery day

They warned us not to go outside, but the wind wasn't enough to stop a game of MOOSE*.

*Horse, but more fun to spell.

Would you believe a post a month?

I plead tax season.

Mostly I'm scared to post about oil. Either I post something that will look foolish in a month, or something useless.

Anyhow, to be useful:

NEW or EXTENDED for 2011

  • The American Opportunity Tax Credit for tuition expenses was extended for 2011 with a credit of up to $2,500.

  • Employees will pay only 4.2% payroll taxes for 2011, while self-employed individuals will pay only 10.4% on income up to $106,800.

The Child Tax Credit of $1,000 per child has been extended for 2011 for married individuals earning less than $110,000 and for head-of-household filers earning less

So go somewhere exciting

A Post a Day

And maybe I'll be able to beat a 10-year old's MAP scores -

They really make it hard to find what these things mean.

Anyhow, it was a nice quiet day in the fall of civilization.

Since I have been linked

& may now be getting as many as 2 hits a week, might as well finish the story of ANWR oil.

Y'all remember how this was one of the big clubs against treehuggers? All this oil that could save us? And they were keeping it off the market?

Latest estimate is that it could supply all the US oil needs for about 45 days.

Which is to say, we had a temp at work a few months ago. Somebody ran into her socially yesterday. Turns out that in 2 weeks of being ignored while making copies & suchlike, the woman had learned pretty much all there is to know about our operation.

In case you were wondering.
