When I think of my grandmother, I am always transported back to my childhood years. Her house always smelled like an Italian restaurant, so it was no wonder that we all enjoyed eating there when we were able to. One of my favorite things there were her Italian meatballs. She made them just as I used to do, but hers were so much better because she was able to let them cook slowly for hours upon hours on the stove. I was not able to do that until I found an Instant Pot meatballs recipe.
I did not even own an Instant Pot at the time that I saw the recipe online. I had just been looking for meatball recipes, and I found this one that looked so good. Continue reading Meatballs Just Like My Grandma Used to Make
If there’s one thing I hate about doing taxes, it’s doing taxes for other people. Ever since people found out that I do my own taxes, they’ve all been asking me to do their taxes for them. They offered to pay me, which is nice, but I would rather not have to look at all of those tax documents for so many people. Still since I wanted the money, I agreed to help these people out. I started using professional tax software to help me speed up the process of filing tax documents. Without it, I’d be doing everything by hand.
Using the software, it’s easy just to feed in the information from the forms that have been provided for me by the people, and everything get’s put into the right place and the calculations are made. I can even scan the documents with my scanner and extract the information that way. The only reason I don’t use the scanning method is because my scanner is one of those one page scanners that are found on all in one printers. Scanning one page takes nearly a minute, so scanning all of the pages given to me would be a terrible experience. If I had a scanner that allows me to feed in documents, then I would be able to do that without wasting time.
After doing taxes this season, I made $1,000, which I consider a pretty good profit. That was more than I got back from my tax refund. I decided to use that money to buy some parts for my computer. I needed some more RAM and a new graphics card that could run some of the games. I’m still debating if I should use some of the money to get that feeding scanner for the next tax season.
It seemed like a great idea when my boss started talking about it in fact. For the company they are trying to save some money. The place we are using right now is really crowded and we need to expand a little, but obviously they rent you office space by the square foot. So instead of that they want some of us to stay home when it makes sense, obviously while doing the work same as we would at home. Today I was looking at a work Sharp 3000 review 72 and thinking about what would make sense when it comes to office machines. Obviously I get to write all of this stuff of my taxes and the company is going to pay for the things that they think I really need any how. After a bit I started to talk to one of the guys who runs the place, and he showed me a little room that was stuffed with older office equipment.
A lot of that stuff was junk, but there was one machine that had simply been extra. It had been bought to replace something that had broken and then we had bought new stuff so the company could write all of it off their taxes about two years ago. I had to sign some forms that said that I had taken it and that I knew that it did not belong to me. Of course I need to be real careful as it turns out. The IRS apparently has a lot of issues with some of the stuff that people write off their taxes and claim it is for a home office. In fact they often do anything else. Like for instance they build a home gym or a spa. So you have to be really careful.
My family and I have always been stanch supporters of the 2nd Amendment. It is my right as an American to own and use guns to hunt and protect my family. I think guns are very necessary for survival and defense. I also understand that gun ownership also comes responsibly. I know that people have to make smart decisions about using guns. As the owner of a gun shop, I have to make sure the right people have guns. I have recently decided to sell 2nd amendment shirts at my shop. I think it will positively support gun ownership in a positive light.
Guns have always have always been a very important part of my life. A gun saved my father’s life when he was in the military. He had to defend himself against enemies of America that tried to kill him. When I was younger, my grandfather took me hunting with him. He used to hunt deer, possums, raccoons, and rabbits. We would take them back home and my grandmother cleaned and cooked the meat. She made rabbit stew,roasted possum and deer. Those meals were so delicious. Continue reading A Shot for More Profit
