Good that you are happy. Guess this is the right board for you!

It's a dreary, chilly day here today. We have had some rain showers, too, but nothing like the poor folks south of us, in Connecticut or Massachusetts. There IS flooding here and there in VT.

I got my/our state and federal taxes done and e-filed Monday so that's that. Once again, we paid ZERO taxes for the year, and will even get a refund for the small sums I had withheld once or twice when I withdrew money from my IRA.

We hope the sun will return soon so we can get to the yard work! I need to restain the front porch, too. It tok a beating thiswinter with all the scraping and shoveling.

From your comments I gather you must be 68-1/2 or so. I'm now 70, so have been advised what I haveto take out of my IRA this year, but I have already taken more than that YTD, so no problem!

Keep cheerful!
