    That makes two of us.

    I'm actually the victim of bad timing. I fully retired in 2018. But due to how my separation agreement was structured, the restricted stock that I had earned in prior years (but had not quite vested) would not fully vest until one year later. So that meant that in 2019 I was handed a large taxable revenue windfall (again, despite the fact that it was actually earned in 2015-2016). Take that away and my real income (made up almost entirely of interest and investment income) was more than low enough to qualify. Even more so for 2020, too. I'm admittedly not exactly hurting without it, but I certainly would have put it to good use (spent it at local restaurants, Home Depot, etc.) and pumped every dime back into the economy.

    Went to our favorite pub last night and had dinner and drinks. Once again the servers were very happy to see us.

    Well John I am happy that your places are still open. Here no one knows what is open and what isn't. One day Newsom will close everything and then when he gets caught partying at one of his high priced places he will open everything up for a day or so and then close it again until he gets caught at another party.

    Ron, I think he and Cuomo are having a contest to see who can be the most stupid. So far I think Newsom is winning, but it's close.

    Actually Sam there is a lot to truth to your comment regarding it being a contest.

    These ultra liberal states are always trying to out do each other to show they are the most progressive. One state will come up with a silly ass law, and then the next liberal state will try to out do them. It just keeps getting worse.

    Well that is when they do get their tip, so I suppose you are correct.

    They had an All You Can Eat Chicken Enchilada special yesterday. While I usually prefer a shrimp or beef enchilada that chicken that I had was great. And both the rice and beans were different than you usually get at Mexican restaurants. There beans are usually a brown watery mush and the rice is a orange red color. They never seem to have any flavor to them. The ones last night had other stuff in them and they were also great. The next time I see the owner I have to ask if he would share the recipes for those two items.

    While you are at it, why not ask the Colonel what seven herbs and spices he uses? Or knock on the HQ door of Coca-Cola in Atlanta and tell them you want to know what’s in their drink? Let us know how that goes for you. LOL

    No money here. I would be happy with a credit on my taxes due. Hello - anyone in Washington listening. No, probably not.

    It's a little different Dean.

    He knows I would never go into competition with him. And it is also not a item that is on their daily menu. In fact I don't believe I had ever seen it on their special before.

    There is a very nice restaurant here in town, Murphy's that gives away some of their recipes.

    Sometime this year, we taxpayers will again receive another 'Economic Stimulus' payment.



    This is indeed a very exciting program, and I'll explain it by using a Q & A format:




    Q. What is an 'Economic Stimulus' payment ?



    A. It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers.




    Q. Where will the government get this money ?



    A. From taxpayers.




    Q. So the government is giving me back my own money ?



    A. Only a smidgen of it.




    Q. What is the purpose of this payment ?



    A. The plan is for you to use the money to purchase a ; high-definition TV set, thus stimulating the economy.




    Q But isn't that stimulating the economy of China ?



    A. Shut up.




    Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the US. Economy by spending your stimulus check wisely:




    * If you spend the stimulus money at Wal-Mart, the money will ; go to China or Sri Lanka .




    * If you spend it on gasoline, your money will go to the Arabs.




    * If you purchase a computer, it will go to India , Taiwan or ; China ...




    * If you purchase fruit and vegetables, it will go to Mexico , Honduras and Guatemala ...



    * If you buy an efficient car, it will go to Japan or Korea .



    * If you purchase useless stuff, it will go to Taiwan .



    * If you pay your credit cards off, or buy stock, it will go ; to management bonuses and they will hide it offshore.



    Instead, keep the money in America by:



    1) Spending it at yard sales, or



    2) Going to ball games, or



    3) Spending it on prostitutes, or



    4) Beer or



    5) Tattoos.



    (These are the only American businesses still operating in the U.S. )



    Conclusion:



    Go to a ball game with a tattooed prostitute that you met at a yard ; sale and drink beer all day !




    No need to thank me, I'm just glad I could be of help.
