MAY  15, 2013

I DON'T KNOW WHO SIGNED ME UP FOR THIS WORD OF THE DAY. USUALLY IT IS SOMETHING LIKE SERENDIPITOUS - AN INTERESTING COLLECTIONOF LETTERS AND THOUGHTS.

TODAY - WHOEVER RUNS THIS DECIDEDTHAT TODAY I AM CAPABLE OF ONLY SOMETHING SIMPLE-- AND THE WORD OF THE DAY IS DOWN.

AS OPPOSED TO UP?

ALONG WITH ALL THOSE SPAM EMAILS TELLING ME I HAVE QUALIFIED FOR WHO'S WHO - IF I SPEND $25 ON THIER BOOK IN WHICH MY NAME WOULD APPEAR.
AND YOU THINK MY PUPPY BREATH IS NONSENSE?????

I WANT TO BE IN WHAT'S WHAT.
*************

APPARENTLY WE ARE ALL SET WITH AMAZON... THANKS TO KAREN SNOW... IT TOOK ME A DAY OR TWO TO GET USED TO THIS CONCEPT-- AND IT IS NOT AS SIMPLE AS IT SOUNDS-- THE MONEY WILL GO TO SDP-- BUT THE SOURCE IS THIS FOOLISH DAILY DOGGIE BLOG CIRCULATION.. WHICH IS MINE...

I WISH I COULD REMEMBER THE QUOTE ABOUT TWISTED MINDS- BECAUSE THIS CERTAINLY QUALIFIES..

TRY THIS-- I GOT A NOTE FROM SOMEONE SAYING-- BE CAREFUL BECAUSE IF YOU EARN TOO MUCH IT COULD JEOPARTIZE YOUR STATUS AS CHARITY.

 IT HAS TO HAVE SOME TRUTH BECAUSE ---THAT STATEMNENT IS TOO BIZZARRE FOR ME TO IGNORE-----WAY BACK THERE IN MY MIND IS THE STRUGGLE SDP HAD TO STAY A CHARITY BECAUSE OF THE 33% RULE.

FOR THOSE LESS MATHMATICALLY INCLINED I SUGGEST YOU SKIP MY SIMPLIFICATION OF 974 PAGES OF THE IRS RULING.

TO STAY A CHARITY AFTER THE FIRST 5 YEARS, YOU MUST HAVE MORE THAN 33% OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC SUPPORTING YOU.

THE IRS MEANS GENERAL PUBLIC-- NOT JUST A FEW RICH FRIENDS.

SO YOU START WITH YOUR "INCOME" AND SUBTRACT ANY LARGER DONATIONS FROM RICH FRIENDS- THAT GIVES YOU THE PUBLIC SUPPORT. THE RATIO OF PUBLIC SUPPORT TO THE TOTAL MUST BE OVER 33%

EXAMPLE IF SDP TOTAL DONATIONS FROM PEOPLE AND GRANTS WAS $100 AND $20 WAS FROM ME AND $ 35 FROM A RICH UNCLE, THE PUBLIC SUPPORT WOULD BE $45 AND THIS MAGIC RATIO WOULD BE 45/100 OR 45%

FINE- THAT IS OK.
******
BUT-- THE NEXT SECTION OF THE 990 HAS LANGUAGE ABOUT BUSINESS INCOME-- WHICH I THINK MIGHT BE THIS AMAZON DEAL

THEY MAKE YOU ADD THAT IN AND RE CALCULATE--

SO -- IF AMAZON BRINGS US $70 THEN OUR TOTAL INCOME WOULD BE $170-- OF WHICH THE PUBLIC SUPPORT WOULD STILL BE $45 SO OUR RATIO WOULD BE 26% AND THE IRS WOULD BE UPSET ABOUT THE. PUBLIC CHARITY STATUS.

THAT IS THE SIMPLE EXPLINATION-- IT GETS MUCH MORE COMPLICATED WITH USING A 5 YEAR HISTORY ETC...

SO WITH THE REAL SDP NUMBERS WE COULD SIT UP AND TAKE NOTICE IF THAT AMAZON MONEY EQUAL THE REST OF OUR INCOME i.e. DOUBLING IT..

 HAVING TOO MUCH MONEY HAS NEVER BEEN A PROBLEM BEFORE, BUT I FEEL I AM UP TO THE CHALLANGE OF HAVING TOO MUCH.

JUST TRY ME.--

************

THERE IS GREAT EXCITEMENT HER TODAY CHAOS ALMOST WAGGED HER TAIL THIS MORNING.. SHE HAS NOT BEEN FEELING WELL-- SHE MIGHT LIKE PAUL TO COME AND SIT WITH HER IN THE SUN ( THIS MORNING BECAUSE I AM TOLD IT WILL RAIN LATER????)

AND 4 OF THE BARN DOGS HAD MOUNDS..

EVEN BENTLEY HAD 50% MOUNDS

SO THINGS ARE LOOKING UP.

********

PROJECT OF THE DAY IS TO DETAIL THE DOGGIE BAG WHICH WILL BE A "STORE" ON OUR WEB.. WE HAVE A VERY EXCLUSIVE INVENTORY OF MONKEY FISTS, PUPPY BREATH, PUZZLES, POSTERS OF THE FAMILY TREE-- ALL HAVE TO BE PACKAGEDUP AND TAKEN TO THE PO TO SEE WHAT THEY CHARGE TO MAIL THEM... AND THEN FIGURE OUT THE PRICING IN SOME VERY SIMPLE WAY.

AXEL, AND SHELIA HAVE OFFERED TO FIGURE IT OUT.

  1. I'd like to see the monthly amount of donations received compared to the monthly costs associated with the charity. Is that online?
