This week:

I’m now about halfway through my annual battle with the tax return. Not doing too badly, so far. Each year I learn a little more about using technology to simplify the process, while still holding some tasks out for me to do the old-fashioned way. Even so, I double-check a lot of things that the machine does first, just to make sure it’s all correct. In the end, any problem is my responsibility, so I shouldn’t just try to blame it on the computer. But I sure am happy to have 21st-century ‘toys’ to make things so much easier for me than they used to be!

At the same time, I’m teaching Jim about all these accounting tasks I’ve been taking care of for nearly half a century. Boy, does he owe me big! Just a personal note for anybody whose partner does that job so they don’t have to worry so much about it: Be sure to give them a big hug and Thank You at your earliest opportunity, ‘cause it sure ain’t easy!

Meanwhile, Krissy and Glenn Gable of San Francisco were able to join Tony for his vigil last Friday. Krissy took a great picture of Tony and Glenn for posterity, but it arrived on its side, and though I turned it right-side up in PhotoImpact, it keeps coming up sideways in this blog and on Facebook, and I can’t find any functions to turn it in those venues. I’ll try a few more tricks and see if I can get it to behave so I can post it here and on Facebook soon.

If anyone can tell me how to correct the problem directly on Google blog and/or Facebook, please pass the tip on to me at: It’s always helpful to expand one’s knowledge and a real gift to be able to avoid frustration in the future!

Incidentally, we love it when people from other parts of the country find us here in our little corner of the southern desert and join us when they come for the fantastic winter weather and/or spring baseball games. There’s a lot to be enjoyed here, and we welcome anybody who wants to come out to stand for an end to conflict, poverty, injustice, or whatever your favorite cause is Welcome to all!

Join me in a vow to use our blessings, skills, and talents to build a society without poverty or war in which everyone is able to enjoy at least the basic benefits of prosperity and peace.

Meanwhile, send out your positive thoughts and, for those who are believers, prayers for all the suffering souls all around the world!
