    Morning all!

    The only thing missing in the Affordable Boat Act is the fact that employers will face taxes if they provide you with a salary that allows you to buy a "Cadillac" boat - it's not fair to everyone else if your employer goes over and above just a basic boat.

    No problem on meeting the intentions of the donor (it's actually a corporation and I'll be able to tell you who it is next spring). $1mil in case goes to the college's endowment. $1.5 mil comes in equipment and services over 5 years - those have been generally defined in a document now with some things as "mandatory" and others flexible since our needs/wants may change over the 5 years. It will make more sense when I can tell you who it is.

    We also kicked off our first-ever lecture series at the college. We have been wanting to do this for several years and have finally put everything in place to pull it off. Our first series is the Energy Education Series and will focus on issues related to the Marcellus Shale gas field. This lecture focused on community health issues - we had a great turn-out for our first event.

    Back to the grind of trying to reinvent our board of trustees process and by-laws today. Exciting! Not.

    Evening all:
    Just read where the IRS paid out 3.6 BILLION in fraudulent tax refunds, and has 3,000 people working on identity theft. :eek:
    Really amazing how incompetent they really are!

    GUARANTEED! That's just the tip! :mad::mad:
    Unbelievable the amount of fraud that's involved with most Govt. agencies.
    Seems like they are easy pickings, and someone is always asleep at the switch!

    Neat pic. of an ice burg though, but that's what sank the Titanic!!!!!!

    And yet in order to track down and prosecute these criminals the far right would object due to an increase in the size of government. The far left would cry invasion of privacy.

    I am pissed off about the fraud as well.

    Sounds like a wise plan, Rob!! I enter our kitchen only when invited.

    Busy weekend ahead for many of us, I think. I've got to get the plow on the ATV, pick up some leaves, do some touch-up panting in the house and shut off the outside spigots. Oh, and check the water in the spa.

    I also will spend a little time helping a friend get more used to her recently purchased handgun - a S&W Governor. Pretty impressive revolver.

    Morning all:wave:...TGIF. Hope you all have a great weekend. I "had" some garden work to do, but the wife(love her dearly) hired a landscaper to come in and redo the mulch, trim the shrubs and do a fall clean up:yay:. BUT there is always a reason behind the way she thinks:facepalm:. My son & daughter in law just bought a house and guess where I'll be this weekend...
    But it won't be too bad cause I'll be spackling and repairing the heater.

    :puke:every time I hear of the government making mistakes that amount to billions and then turning around and telling everyone that they will have to cut Social Security and we have to pay more for Medicare Etc. Etc...no more rant. It's FRIDAY..

    Wet, grainy snow on grassy areas, off and on all day! Cold and windy. Saw a few vehicles that must have driven in from higher elevations that a few inches of snow on them.
