    Things that make you say "Hummm....."

    Such bull..... I hope the judge figures out a way to really screw them. $450k to them is like $4500 to me. Actually it may be more like $450.

  4. 1)Being native North Carolinian (seriously all four branches of my family were here in the late 1600s early 1700s) 2) I remember staying up late to watch UNC and Jordan win the 1982 NCAA title - I was in fourth grade and it was big deal I was up that late. ** Side note ** State won in 1983 greatest comeback story ever - come at me 😂 3) The man, myth, legend comes and buys our beloved NBA team and returns the original name Jordan is Royalty for me. I don’t even like Carolina (sorry Hoya). Every year while we went from class to class just to watch the ACC tourney, every teacher would give his history - from not making Varsity his freshman year, to all of his triumphs as a Chicago Bull. I will watch it with my girls - just for them to realize how big he really is. They just know him as a pair of shoes 🙄
  5. If you interested in pure crazy - of course! It will take a few episodes...

    Brian Dennehy - he was one of the best from going to bad guy to good guy. When you saw him in something, you were never confident until the end what side he might be on ❤️ https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.com/cnn/2020/04/16/entertainment/brian-dennehy-dead/index.html

    James Otto

    So I was with my daughter today and she listens to Country music (not really my go to genre). And low and behold - I hear a song and the screen tells me it is James Otto!!! It brought a smile to my face as I thought of you James Otto Sweetheart🥰

    Is anyone else just ticked off at how many people are not taking it seriously? I have friends having people over and joking about staying 6ft apart. The list of essential employees is ridiculous. Just because you are doesn’t mean you should. And people think since they are essential the rules don’t apply to them? My husband, runs an HVAC supply wholesale store, and is essential. We talked last night and he is going to start coming straight home and showering before talking to any of us. I am inexplicably considered essential (CPA), but have cut off physical contact or presence with all my clients. Talking or emailing daily with them and still doing tax returns. Clients are either dropping stuff off in my mailbox or submitting electronically. I would go pick up, but only from front porch or mailbox. My two college age daughters (20,18) and I are at home except for grocery shopping - my youngest drives to the park for a daily run. She cannot run in neighborhood (she was almost kidnapped two years ago doing this - another story another day). We are the exception. People think we are being ridiculous. I am scared of coming into contact with anyone - I have seasonal asthma and it’s the season. I live in a suburb of Charlotte, NC and am a skip and a jump from Hoya (that is Southern for not far 😂 - probably 3 hours) I agree with Hoya, our Governor has been spot on. I just wish our citizens were. I am becoming judgy and bitter. That is not like me 😢
  9. I just finished Tiger King - it was crazy! Carole totally fed her husband to the tigers. And Joe with the power of meth, can make straight young men marry him.

    This makes me sad😢. My grandfather loved to sing Kenny Rogers music.

    As some (?) of you may know, I am self employed CPA. I am offering for you to drop off your stuff in my mailbox, I pick it up in yours or electronically submit it all. And I still have people that want to meet in person. I am encouraging no contact at all. But this is my first year pushing this out full time, so I cannot be choosy. Luckily most of my longtime monthly clients and happy conversing through email and phone. Definitely a different way to do business. Some people love the no in person, but most are struggling.

    I was at Walmart and Harris Teeter (think midscale grocery) today. Lots of people lots of out of stock items. I have two appointments tomorrow - business related - in person. I think those will be the last ones until this is over. I work from home as a CPA and have the technology for my clients to submit everything electronically. Husband will still have to work - he is an HVAC supplier branch manager. Both College daughters are now home, but I have to get one back out to UCLA to get her stuff because Friday they cancelled in person for the rest of the year. If they had made this call two days earlier, she would have still been there 🤦🏻‍♀️ We have a family plan as to what happens when one of us gets sick. What room is quarantine room etc. I think we are as ready as we can be. I still plan to grocery shop weekly as normal. But that is about it. This is crazy!

    My daughter just called from UCLA. Exams are this week, but they are moving everything online and asking kids to stay home until April 10. She just found this out, so she wants to check in with her Professors and then I will need to change her flight. I am hoping the airlines won’t give me a hard time
