Not that you care
I care and I'm jealous. Doing our taxes is very exciting for me. Doing our monthly budget is also exciting. All my necessary forms will not be in until the first week of March most likely, so I'll have to wait until then :(

I had lunch at a BBQ joint today that was so good you'd consider moving your family so you could eat there weekly.
Thread win.

Name the joint, and location? Thread fail.
Fargo's in Bryan, TX.
We're making a road trip up there next weekend just to try Fargo's.
You are a wise man. Make sure you use the Texas Street address. They moved a little while back and Google maps took us to the old location.

It's a good thing we can't discuss politics around here anymore, because I'd be wasting a lot of time arguing about this deficit hypocrisy.

One of the most difficult parts of moving to a new state has been leaving our church home and small group family. I've visited five churches around our new home, Mrs FredS has been to nine. I'm discouraged that none will have services on Ash Wednesday. In fact. one has cancelled Wednesday evening bible study this week in deference to Valentines Day.

So I've gone old school and investigated the local Anglican, Episcopalian, and even the Lutheran churches. They all have Ash Wednesday services scheduled, but unfortunately, none of them offer any music other than choirs, and that just won't cut it as a long-term choice.

Why is it so difficult for Protestant churches to observe Lent? It's not a Catholic™ thing, it's a Christian thing.

I would only care.
It’s almost believable, but I love it most of the time whether it’s true or not.

Today I’m sending a marketing letter to over 400 recipients. The letter is stuffed in a polka dotted envelope, the postage will be Christmas stamps.

Sounds like somebody doesn't want any customers.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

Lol!

More of those letters will get opened, read and responded to than all the high class shiny mailers I could ever afford to send. I used to spend big money sending nice stuff. More of that ended up in the trash without even a look by potential customers. My response rate tripled doing stuff like I did today. The letter itself is nice and useful, the opposite of what it’s sent in. It’s obvious that we wanted people to actually open the letter instead of getting sent to the garbage with “junk mail.”
