I don't want to tax this stuff, just wish people would use more sense, but I know....wish in one hand and $#it in the other, and see which one fills up faster. (never tried that personally, but I bet I know the answer!)
This boy is heading outside. Crisp, clear morning, at about 45 degrees, heading up to 70 here today. My dog is telling me to shut this thing off and run some marks!
Are you actually volunteering to pay higher taxes? How kind of you...:-P
