February 20, 2013

and we wait.....
 
another day or two and it will be walter for sure...  she is comfortable-- and huge.
olive  does like human company.
 
and i am happy to report becky had a shower- so we could wash/dry her blood soaked clothes-- and stanley  has had no more nosebleeds
 
since this is reality... he did snort out a scab/clot about an inch long-- and we held or breath-- but no blood followed..
***************
the annenburg foundation  sent ann a note saying we did not need an official 501 c 3 financial audit...-  thank heavens-- they cost money- not every cpa is licensed  to do them.. but i still needed to clean them up
*****
which causes me to warn anyone....
IF YOU ARE USING QUICKEN--- AND THEY TELL YOU YOU MUST UPDATE OR YOU CAN NOT GET BANK DOWNLOADED STATEMENTS...
 
I THINK IT IS FULL OF BUGS..
AND PARANOID ME....  BUT    BOB AGREED-- MANY LITTLE ANNOYING BUGS THAT MEAN IT JUST DES NOT FUNCTIONAS THE WAY  QUICKEN DID BEFORE THE UPDATE....
 
GIVE ME CHECKS BETWEEN  1/1/2011  AND 12/31/2011   AND IT SHOWS THAT YOU TYPED THOSE DATES IN-- BUT BOLDLY ANNOUNCES\
"WE DO NOT HAVE ANY ENTRIES
IN THE TIME PERIOD 1/1/2014 TO 12/31/2047"
 
BOB DID FIND THAT IF YOU CLICKED ON THE CALENDAR INSTEAD OF TYPING IN THE DATE-- THAT THAT ISSUE WAS RESOLVED.. 
 
BUT THERE ARE SOOOOO MANY MORE.... JUST AS CREATIVE.
 
DON'T DO IT.
*****************************
IN AN EFFORT TO VERIFY OUR "BOOKS"- ALL YOU CPA WANNABEES....
 
TRY THIS LOGIC... 
IF I START WITH THE BNK STATEMENT BAL FWD on 1/1/2011  ADD ALL THE DEPOSITS  2012 SUBTRACT ALL THE CLEARED CHECKS I SHOULD BET THE BAL FWD for 2013
 
then-- IF I START WITH QUICKEN-- ADD THOSE DEPT and subtract  checks add in the opening bal and then add back the   outstanding checks-- that sum  should equal the bal fwd for 2013  no?
 
and the $30 ish  that does not balance is the fact that i  rounded--  used whole numbers
 
then the list of donors has to equal the bank  deposits ( it does)
 
did i prove apples were apples -----or did i have a logical check of the balances??
 
all this will be on  line with the 990-- wherever that is supposed to go...
*****************
 
puppies-- noel's are getting serious-- ready to get that dish of food in front of them-- they hardly needed an spoon to redirect their attention down to the goats milk...
 
so it starts--   goats milk and grinding the puppy chow
 
*** as for olives' pups-- other than breathing hard... nothing.
****************
soooo many people come up with good ideas....and i would love to do some of the things.. but  there is only one of me.
puzzles-- we have several photos that would make super jigsaw puzzles.. -
 
someone said we should contact the n.s. regional school and get them to build us something... we sure could use another chicken house-- that is one of the volunteers bonuses- lth efresh eggs you can gather.. and extend the wood splitting cover--that wood is necessary for  t enutt and dealgle house plus teh meat cutting in th eoffice.. it all ties in..
 
and then writing to companies for things.. like th e stairs  uline would probably donate some if -whoever it was that mentioned it keeps after them.
 
and then there is the va-- this is a big one.. apparently veternarians have to register with the va to be able to be paid for working on service dogs... we need someone to research that one. ann has a pretty good start on that.. ann??? ( jim and ann in florida)
 
there are so  many i get overwhelmed...
but i do want  the projects run by me to be sure we have no conflicts going...
 
re puzzles... i have a lovely bunch of harl dogs on a white sheet-- and last night someone sent th e pile of nuppies in the barn all black and piled up    that is another good one.  bailey in the  snow??
 
today?? i would like to get out and go somewhere-- 11;00 ish for a drifting around with dogs
 
i hope we have enough ink... i have a lot of accounting to print before tomorrow 
 
bless this paperless society...

  3. Carlene, may I suggest contacting your local Boy Scout Troop for some of the repairs, a chicken coop, etc. Something like that would be a perfect Eagle Scout project!
