  1. I think it is ridiculous to get a large refund. If I do get a refund, it will be small & go to pay bills. Usually it is less than what we owe on local taxes.

  2. My step son’s and his bride to be’s wedding

    Here’s hoping for a surprize call after a weekend in Vegas. I would rather just write them a check than pay for a wedding(i think weddings are waste of money)
