Good morning crew,
It seems like spring is threatening to make an early arrival around here, with the mountains of snow from last week almost gone and temperatures edging into the 50s. But I know better. We're going to have at least one more snow storm before this winter is over.
It just better do it before March 20 or I'm going to look real foolish.
Laugh it up,

My 10-year-old daughter has decided she is an environmentalist. So she talked me into participating in an aggressive recycling effort with her.
Last week she and I took what proved to be 134 pounds of cardboard boxes to the recycling center and earned $1.34. Counting gas and ice cream, we turned a profit of -$7.85.
We're going to use generally accepted accounting principles and see if we can apply this amount to our taxable income.

Finally his mother asked the obvious question: "Where did you get all that money?"
"At Sunday school," the boy replied enthusiastically. "They got bowls of it!"
