Life on TWC

  1. Why I cannot stand the IRS

    I do not usually vent about problems like this on TWC, but today I got a letter from the IRS regarding tax year 2013 and how it relates to TWC. They are now claiming I owe them $13,319 in taxes for calendar year 2013 plus a tax underpayment penalty of $2,664 and interest of $472 for a total of $16,466 and gave me two freaking days to respond! Needless to say I am a bit bent over this.

    To start off with there are a few things you need to know about how TWC is run for you to understand ...

  2. Hands on Integration

    The other week I went to a Inter-Religion Integration Seminar.

    The Bishop came, laid his hands on my hand and said, “By the will of Jesus Christ, you will walk today!”

    I smiled and told him I was not paralyzed.

    The Rabbi came, laid his hands on my hand and said, “By the will of God Almighty, you will walk today!

    I was less amused when I told him there was nothing wrong with me.

    The Mullah came, took my hands and said, “Insha Allah, ...

  4. Loving my Dog and loosing Weight

    Yesterday I was at my local Woolworth store buying a large bag of “My Dog” dog food for my loyal pet and was in the checkout queue when a woman behind me asked if I had a dog.

    What did she think I had an elephant? So, since I'm retired and have little to do, on impulse I told her that no, I didn't have a dog, I was starting the Dog Diet again. I added that I probably shouldn’t, because I ended up in hospital last time, but I'd lost 10 kilograms before I woke up in intensive care with ...

  5. Torreon not a Torero, sadly.

    Today was a very busy Easter Saturday. I got up at 6 A.M.. After the usual morning routine and a quick breakfast I had to do the shopping for the Easter weekend, which was sort of okay since the shops were not too crowded early in the morning. Then I had to pick up parts of the family from the train station - after all Easter is a family fest and this time around, we're on the line, go figure.

    After two successive drives to and from the train station and all the "Please do pick ...
