i din't know where i left You all with MY insurance story..AIG life insurance that i have paid into for 30 years and was/is to have a cash value....
I now have in my hands
AIG letter saying cash value $107,000 dated 2/1/2017
AIG letter sayiing cash value $0 dated 2/1/2017
letter from COMMONWEALTH OF MASS INSURANCE DIVISION-- "we are looking into it." 1/31/2017
and money in my hands.... zero.
moving on-- clearing up problems of wierd balances on th e 990 form that the accountant irene had done..
turns out there is an accountant rule SAFAS117 that if you are given a grant of 100,000 -- in 2 payments of 50,000 per year, the year that was awarded gets the whole $100000 even tho you MAY not have a penny yet.
that raises h3ll with my internal mental process..which is simply you get $20 in the mail-- it goes in the banK and Stays there til you spend it ---by check-- therefor the balance in th echeckbook should show a vague similarity to the money On the bank STATEMENTS.'
the accountatn's way-- which apparently is the way it is to be legally done--
-weeeelllll lets call it BIPOLAR ACCOUNTING... TOTALLY REARANGEING HOW WE HAVE TO DEAL WITH REPORTS WHEN REQUESTING GRANTS... IT LOOKS VERY PRETTY WITH ALL THOSE NUMBERS ALL OVER REAMS OF PAPERS... BUT IT ALL BOILS DOWN TO THE BANK STATEMENTS. FOR US TO HAVE TO DEPRECIATE EQUIPMENT IN A LEGALLY DEVISED SYSTEM OF LIFE EXPECTENCY IS UNREALISTIC.. FOR EXAMPLE ---DOGGIE DOORS--T HAT VINYL DOES COST MONEY-- HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN TO THE IRS.... -"THEY ATE THEM"
BETWEEN THE CUMMINGS GRANT AND THE EXPLORE GRANT ONE YEAR WE ARE LAUGHING- THE NEXT WE ARE NOT MEETING THE PAYROLL... BUT WE MUST DO IT THERI WAY
SOUND LIKE THE BUILDING INSPECTOR STUFF???
FOOTBALL WAS CERTAINLY A RELIF FROM THE REGULAR NEWS...
NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD LIKE FOOTBALL.
MY EYE TO MIND PROCESS IS NOT FAST ENOUGH TO DEAL WITH 'THE GROUND GAME"
I CAN SEE A PASS WHEN IT IS THROWN- AND USUALLY I CAN TELL WHICH SIDE THREW IT...
BUT THE INTRICACIES OF HEAD BASHING ARE BEYOND ME...I DID NOTICE WHEN A MEMBER OF EACH TEAM GOT THIER FACE MASKS STUCK TOGETHER.. THAT WAS AMUSING....
APPARENTLY THERE IS A BIG PARADE TODAY-- WITH THE DUCK BOATS
THEIR DUCK BOATS... NOT MINE
THAT ... BY THE WAY... IS A GOOD WAY TO SEE BOSTON.. THEY DRIVE AROUND THE STREETS AND OFF INTO THE RIVER LETTING YOU SEE ALL THE CRITICAL BOSTON HISTORICAL SIGHTS.
REGULATIONS?? I AM TOLD THE PEOPLE WHO DRIVE THEM HAVE TO BE LICENSED CAB DRIVERS, , PASS COAST GUARD TESTS TO BE BOAT DRIVERS. HAVE EMT REG, AND IT SEEMS THERE ARE MORE I HAVE FORGOTTEN... IT AIN'T EASY TO GET TO BE A DUCK BOAT DRIVER...
THE GIFTS AND ATHLETES ARE NOW MIXED-- IN THE KITCHEN AREA... WORKING VERY WELL SO FAR... ANTHO THEY HAVE TO BE WATCHED FOR A WHILE-- THE GIFTS ARE JUST A LITTLE LESS "ADVANCED " AT BITEY FACE 101. SIZZLE HAS FOUND HER CALLING.. BABY SITTING THE GROUP...
tho this eamil sounds a little harsh, the dogs love working and are very comfortable doing their jobs-- and getting all the benefits of doing a good job..
I have just learned a hard lesson and Emmett is paying for it. He was never the problem, it was me.There is a right way and a wrong way to treat these dogs. And my way was the wrong way.
I let him get away with things, not correcting bad behavior, worrying about hurting his feelings, not any more. You need to be consistent every time, don't take their training for granted, practice, practice, practice, talk to your dog, they are a tool that needs to be kept sharp. When they are working they need to keep 100% focus on you, no distractions what so ever. I have adopted a 100%, all the time,hands off policy while out of the house. He needs to know only me for the time being and get all his love and affection from me too. I've seen great changes in him. I am so thankful for this second chance. I am finally understanding how to use a service dog and how much more they will do for you. When things are not going as planned "stop the world....., take a breath" words to live by, thank you Steve and Megan. I will not fail him.
