july 28 2014
MONDAY MORNING  AND MY HEAD IS ALREADY FULL OF MUST DO'S

I NEVER GOT TOO FAR WITH THE FLOORING-- AS I SAT IN THE T TENT  EATING ICECREAM IT LOOKED LIKE SUCH A LONG WALK TO THE BARN THAT I SAT PUTTING DOWN  MANY MORE CALORIES THAN I WAS USING UP..... ..

 SINCE  I HEARD RUMORS OF 2 INCHES MORE OF RAIN TODAY-- MAYBE WAYNE CAN  PUT THE FLOOR  DOWN--  I HAVE EVERYTHING UP THERE.... EXCEPT THE ENERGY TO DO IT --   BUT I HAVE ABOUT ENOUGH ENERGY TO GET SOMEONE ELSE STARTED.
*************
 THE THREAT OF AN OFFICIAL ACCOUNTANT HAS  ME CLEANING UP THE QUICKEN--  IT IS ALL THERE -- BUT  QUICKEN HAS HAD SOME UNIQUE IDEAS OF IT'S OWN THAT I WAS JUST LUMPING    UNDER MISC EXPENSE  BECAUSE THEY WERE TOTALLY FICTITIOUS IN THE FIRST PLACE

.... LIKE..... FOR SEVERAL MONTHS IT ADDED $285 TO OUR DEPOSIT-- IT WAS IN NO WAY ANYONE PLAYING "MAD HARRY" WITH THE NUMBERS.. BECAUSE IT HAPPENED TO ME-- AND IN A HURRY IT WAS EASIER TO JUST LEAVE IT THERE.. HOWEVER  WITH THTA $285 IN TH E
QUICKEN DEPOSITS FOR A COUPLE MONTHS-- AND THE BANK NOT RECEIVING  IT  THERE IS  A $3000 DIFFERENCE IN THE BANK STATEMENTS.-- I KNEW WHAT IT WAS AND WHY IT WAS-- BUT YOU TRY AND EXPLAIN  THAT TO A GUY IN A BLUE SUIT CARRYING A BRIEFCASE.. AND CARRYING ALOT OF PRECONCEIVED NOTIONS ABOUT MATCHING NUMBERS..
--
SO I HAVE ALOT OF ARGUING WITH QUICKEN TO DO..
**************
AND RE-ORGANIZING--- BECAUSE WHAT WORKS FOR ME WITH ACCOUNTING DOES NOT WORK FOR A 990 THAT HAS TO BE INSPECTED BY A BLUE SUIT... AND NOT EVEN A NORMAL BLUE SUIT BUT A SPECIAL ONE FOR CHARITIES

WE NEED ONE OF THOSE... NOW--- TODAY--- YESTERDAY  !!
-----  PREFERABLE PROBONO IF THERE IS SUCH A THING.
******

MAYBE NOT ALL OF YOU HAVE HEARD MY" LIFE  DUE TO AN ACCOUNTING ERROR" STORY.  

BRIEFLY ---I WORKED FOR THE WANT ADVERTISER MAGAZINE FOR 30+ YEARS--- OUT OF MY HOUSE-- VERY CASUAL JOB-- JUST GET IT DONE-- NO HOURS ETC.... AND I MANAGED THE DISTRIBUTION NORTH OF THE CHARLES RIVER-- ON INTO MAINE..

 I WAS - HISTORICALLY AN MATHEMATICIAN-- SO WHEN COMPUTERS CAME ALONG I JUST WHIPPED TOGETHER  MY OWN ACCOUNTING SYSTEM TO KEEP TRACK OF 16 DELIVERY ROUTES/PEOPLE WITH THEIR VARIOUS  STORES CHARGE ACCOUNTS. AND MADE IT GIVE ME A ONE PAGE PIECE OF PAPER  AS A MONTHLY  REPORT.  EXTREMELY SIMPLIFIED..
THINGS LIKE---  WAS THE NUMBER OF CHARGE SLIPS BILLED TO CUMBERLAND A MULTIPLE OF 4 INDICATING IT HAD  COUNTED THE CHARGE SLIPS FOR  THE 4 WEEK MONTH ON ABOUT 200 STORES.  I HAD THE QUICK WAY OF GETTIN G THE INFO I NEEDED.. ON ONE PIECE OF PAPER

THIS IS GOING SOMEWHERE-- HANG ON--

THIS ONE SHEET I FOLDED IN MY BACK POCKET OF MY BLUE JEANS  AND OCASSIONALLY  WENT  TO A MEETING WITH THE PRESIDENT OF THE COMPANY-- WHERE I WAS JOINED BY AN IMPRESSIVE LOOKING COMPANY ACCOUNTANT IN A BLUE SUIT WITH BRIEFCASE AND POLISHED SHOES.  HE HAD AN IMPRESSIVE  MONTHLY REPORT-- ON THAT OLD IBM ZIG ZAG FOLDED COMPUTER PAPER THAT WAS ABOUT 1/2 INCH THICK...   I HAD MY  ONE WADDED UP PAPER IN MY POCKET..... HE DEMONSTRATED HOW EASY IT WS TO FLIP THRU  THAT DATA AND SCAN FOR A STORE THAT DID NOT HAVE 4 CHARGE SLIPS FOR THE MONTH... MY ONE PIECE OF PAPER HAD ALREADY DONE THAT..

AND THEN I NOTICED HIS TOTAL $ DUE..
SO I SAID TO THE PRESIDENT (THESE WORDS BUILD OUR BARN AND ARENA)" HIS REPORT IS WRONG... I CAN NOT  RIGHT NOW TELL YOU WHY IT IS WRONG BUT IN 25 WORDS OR LESS I CAN PROVE IT."

THE BOOK WHOLESALE SOLD FOR 86 CENTS  AND HIS TOTAL WAS AN ODD NUMBER SO I ASKED WHAT HE MULTIPLIED BY 86 TO GET AN ODD NUMBER...  

THAT WAS PRETTY MUCH THE REASON THEY GAVE ME THE RESPONSIBILITY  OF ALL THE ENTIRE COMPANY-- NOT JUST MY NORTHERN AREA...  AND THEY PAID ME 1/2 WHAT THEY PAID HIM-- A HUGE BARGAIN FOR THEM--   MUST HAVE TAKEN ME AN ADDITIONAL 37 MINUTES WEEKLY TO ADD THIER NUMBERS TO AN ALREADY EXISTING SYSTEM.
**********
THERE WERE A COUPLE OTHR PROBLEMS WITH HIS STORE BOUGHT SYSTEM.. ANOTHER SPECTACULAR WAS -- THE BILLS WERE GOING OUT WITH CHARGES LISTED IN  THIS ORDER...

JANUARY
OCTOBER
NOVEMBER
DECEMBER
FEBURARY 
MARCH... ETC....

A PUZZLE FOR ANYONE EXCEPT A MATH TYPE.
THAT WAS 
1,...10...11...12...2...3..ETC.....
IT WAS SORTING THE NUMBERS LIKE THEY WERE LETTERS.. LIKE THE PHONE BOOK...  the S's----SMITH, SMITHSON , SMITHSONIAN ,  THEN  THE "R's" RUTGERS.... and on.

I CHANGED ONE LINE OF CODE AND PRESTO CHANGO  ALL THE BILLS WERE PERFECT LOOKING- RECOVERING SEVERAL HUNDRED THOUSAND $$ TIED UP IN THAT MESS.--

THE REST OF MY COMICAL SUCCESS STORY--  I HAD WORKED FOR THEM FOR 19 YEARS ALREADY WHEN I MADE SOME COMMENT ABOUT BEING A MATH MAJOR IN COLLEGE AND THIS PRESIDENT SAID "I DIDN'T KNOW YOU WENT TO COLLEGE"  WHICH SAYS A BUNCH OF THINGS...

LIKE IF YOU  CAN  DEFINE A NEED AND DO IT WELL, DO YOU NEED A MULTI MILLION DOLLAR COLLEGE DEGREE?  I STILL MAINTAIN   ALL COLLEGE TAUGHT ME WAS A DEADLINE WAS SERIOUS.  . 
 4PM  WAS NOT  4:01--  BEING ONE MINUTE LATE FOR AN AIRPLANE  IS NOT GOING TO WORK TOO WELL.

DOES THIS PERTAIN TO TODAYS SDP???

ASIDE FROM HAVING THE PROPERTY/BARN/ARENA/..... I STILL HAVE TO FILE THINGS BY MY OLD  ACCOUNTING SYSTEM NUMBERS....  10 IS AUTO... 18 INSURANCE...  23 OFFICE EXPENSE ... 38 UTILITIES  ETC

AND AS I SIT HERE PAM IS STRUGGLING TO PUT A FILE RACK IN THERESA'S  DESK SO I CAN  SET UP A 2014 FILE  FOR THINGS  WITHOUT HAVING TO DEAL WITH HOW SHE HAS THEM FILED... BY ALPHABET

WHO WOULD HAVE THUNK IT....

TO THIS DAY  I AM CONVINCED A COLLEGE DEGREE IS WORTH LESS THAN A GOOD WORK ETHIC.

I ALWAYS HIRED KIDS WHO TOOK CARE OF THEIR OWN  HORSES- BECAUSE THERE WAS A RELIABILITY INSTILLED IN THEM-- BILZZARDS DID NOT MATTER YOU HAD TO GET WATER AND HAY TO THEM.  THEY WERE/ARE  EXCELLENT  EMPLOYEES.

WHICH DOES NOT EXCUSE ME FOR SITTING EATING ICE CREAM BECAUSE OF A FEW RAINDROPS
