SEPT 17 2014
I DO NOT KNOW WHY.. BUT I HAD TO  READ THIS...


San Diego, Los Angeles Public Schools Receive 18-Ton Armored Vehicle

The San Diego Unified School District received a Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle (MRAP) for free last week through Defense Department Program 1033, known as the Excess Property program.SDUSD...


  • SO NOW....I AM WHIPPING THRU THE DD JUST TO SEE HOW THIS WORKS-- I AM OF THE ILK OF TEH THOUSANDS OF  $250 TOILET SEATS THE ARMY HAD STORED IN SOME WAREHOUSE IN PENNA...
  • SEEMS TO ME THERE WAS A SIMILAR STORY WITH  HAMMERS...

SO THE STORY HAS POSSIBLILTIES...

WADDLING ON....

WE DID TAKE OPAL FOR AN ULTRA SOUND YESTERDAY-- IT BEING HER 25TH DAY.... BUT  GEORGE SAID COME BACK IN A WEEK---- WHICH IS ABOUT WHAT I PREDICTED.. A YES WOULD BE A YES... BUT A NO WOULD BE COME BACK IN A WEEK.  SHEILA IS ANXIOUS--- AS ARE WE ALL--- 
I DO HOPE SHE IS PREGNANT---   WITH THE LAST LITTER  OF 4  WE COULD BE SHORT ON PUPS IN 8 MONTHS...

THEY ARE LOVELY , PERSONABLE PUPS....

OTHER THAN THAT EVERYTHING IS RELATIVELY NORMAL

I AM TOLD THE HAY LOFT AKA "GRACE'S LOOKOUT" IS AN ORGANIZED THING OF BEAUTY- APPARENTLY MY ESTIMATE OF 2 CUBIC YARDS OF RIBBONS WAS UNDERESTIMATED... BUT IT IS ALL ORGANIZED... I AM TOLD......

SMALL PROBLEM... MAYBE BUD CAN FIX... TO TURN THE HAY LOFT LIGHT ON , THE SWITCH IS 1/2 WAY DOWN THE DOG ALLEY--- NOT BECAUSE  THE GUY WHO WIRED THE BARN DRANK-- LIKE THE HOUSE GUY--- BUT THE LADDER TO THE HAY LOFT USED TO BE UP THE WALL OPPOSITE KENNEL 3... NOW I HAVE -- THANKS TO MY COLLECTING INSTINCTS A LOVELY IRON LADDER WHICH WAS ONCE THE LADDER TO AN OLD PLAYGROUND SLIDE.
THAT WAS BEFORE PLASTICS WERE INVENTED...

AND I DON'T THINK INSURANCE WAS INVENTED EITHER-- BECAUSE IT MUST HAVE BEEN  A LOVELY BIG -HIGH SLIDE- THAT NOW ADAYS CHILDERN WOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO ENJOY...
AH THE GOOD OLD DAYS OF A METAL SLIDE AND A PIECE OF WAXED PAPER... LIFE WAS COMPLETE.

I REMEMBER...... THE 4H CIRCUS JANINE TALKS ABOUT IN HER BOOK OF DOGS DONKEYS.... I DON'T KNOW IF SHE MENTIONED THE METAL SLIDE I HAD OUT OF THE HAY LOFT... I KNOW  IT TOOK 3 SHEETS OF 4X8  GALVANIZED METAL FOR THE RUN-- ALL OVERLAPPED  SO WE DID NOT SLICE CHILDREN LIKE ONIONS....

WE HAD A PILE OF HAY AT THE BOTTOM AND ONE OF OUR 4H KIDS WAS IN CHARGE OF GETTING PEOPLE ON THEIR FEET AND OUT OF THE WAY OF THE NEXT ONE... IT WAS A FUN SLIDE...

AND ... IN OUR MIDWAY.. WE ALSO HAD A  ROPE LADDER FIXED AT ONE SPOT AT THE TOP AND ONE AT THE BOTTOM-- SO IT WOULD FLIP OVER VERY QUICKLY IF YOU GOT UNBALLANCED.  AGAIN A PILE OF HAY CAUGHT THE UNSUSPECTING..

I REMEMBER TELLING GWEN TO PRACTICE IT SO WHEN THE TOPSFIELD FAIR HAD ONE OF THOSE CLIMB THE LADDER AND RING THE BELL AND WIN A BIG STFFED TOY, SHE COULD DO IT..  WHEN WE TOOK A TRP LOOKING OVER COLLEGES- IN THE PROCESS OF GOING TO KENYON IN OHIO  WE LANDED AT A SMALL COUNTY FAIR WITH ONE OF THOSE LADDERS-- SO SHE DID IT  WITH PRIDE.....

PREPARATION IS A GOOD THING.
PROBLEM IS  YOU ARE NEVER TOO SURE WHAT TO PREPARE FOR.  ( FOR WHAT YOU SHOULD PREPARE--- DARN ENGLISH MAJORS)

BACK TO ACCOUNTING...%^*(^(*)_(*  THIS QUICKEN PROGRAM---  IT HAS TOO MANY OPINIONS OF WHAT I NEED TO HAVE ENTERED..... SO YOU HAVE TO VERIFY EVERY KEY STROKE... AND IT REALLY DOES NOT LIKE THE DECIMAL--- IT HAS ONE OF IT'S OWN 

 SO 19.22 BECOMES 1922.00  BECAUSE IT ALREADY HAS  IT'S OWN .00

I CAN NOT WAIT TO CHANGE TO SOMETHING ELSE AT THE TURN OF THE YEAR... EVEN A PLAIN OLD SPREAD SHEET WOULD BE SIMPLER.

NO CUT AND PASTE.. SORRY..

  1. I HAVE NOT USED QUICKENS IN YEARS BUT THERE SHOULD BE AN EDIT FEATURE THAT ALLOWS YOU TO CHOOSE HOW THE DECIMAL IS APPLIED. GOOD LUCK AND THANKS FOR ANOTHER FUN START TO MY DAY.
