Income Tax Time

Here it is, tax time again. Everyone is complaining about their high taxes. I used to say we should be thankful if we have to pay some tax because it means we made some money. When you get to the time of life you don't have enough income to pay tax, that means you don't have much money either. Unless you are one of the fortunate ones who put away lots for retirement, or inherited money or something like that. It's tough living on a fixed income but you can do it if you just try. You need to have good health insurance and prescription insurance and you will never make it. I am blessed to have both.

Valentine's Day

Saturday, February 14, will be Valentine's Day. Will you be buying flower, jewelry, candy or something else for your Valentine? I think it is a commercial Holiday thought up by people in order to sell more stuff for that day than they would ordinarily. I don't have a Valentine any more and I miss him. We never did really celebrate Valentine's Day very often. I was talking to someone this morning that said the same thing. They don't do anything special for that day. Others go out for a steak supper or something like that. It is fun for those who do celebrate Valentine's Day.

Groundhog Day

Here it is again. Groundhog Day today. And guess what? He saw his shadow (shock) and we will have 6 more weeks of winter. I don't remember in my lifetime when we didn't have 6 more weeks of winter. Tomorrow promises more snow. It is going to be a long Spring the way it is going. February can be a very cold brutal month. We look forward to June when it will probably really warm up. May can be cold and rainy too sometimes. Easter outfits are covered with winter coats, mittens and scarves. Not alot of fun.
