It's Tax Day!



Last week, there basically was no page 0 article so to avoid the same kind of problem, let's write it early.  And what better news could there be, than "It's Tax Day."  That's what happens on April 15th of every year.

For those of us that got our tax return in earlier, congratulations.  For those of you that are still outstanding, today is your last day so get busy.

Actually, that's not entirely true.  Tax Day 2018 has been moved to Tuesday, April 17th.  Why?  Read on.


For years, we’ve treated April 15 as the official tax deadline — except in years that it isn’t.

So put a big red circle around Tuesday, April 17, as the date you’ve got to file 2017 income tax returns for both Georgia and the federal government.

Taxpayers have until 11:59 p.m. to submit returns by e-file or postmarked through the U.S. Postal Service.

Taxpayers are looking at another quirky deadline for filing 2017 returns and the change-up is generating confusion.

What’s the reason we get two extra days?

This year, April 15 falls on a Sunday.

As a result, the Internal Revenue Service typically would shift the filing deadline until the following Monday.

But Monday, April 16, is Emancipation Day — a legal holiday in the District of Columbia.

So that pushes the filing deadline for all those 1040 returns to Tuesday, April 17.

“Under the tax law, legal holidays in the District of Columbia affect the filing deadline across the nation,” according to an IRS statement.

The IRS already has received nearly 85.7 million individual income tax returns through March 23, the latest data available.

That’s up 0.5% from the same time a year ago. About 80% of the returns processed so far have generated tax refunds.

The average refund so far this year is $2,925.

Wondering what’s holding up your refund? Check out the Where’s My Refund? ‎tool at www.irs.gov and the IRS2Go phone app.

Remember, according to the IRS, tax preparers and tax software will not have additional information on refund dates. Where’s My Refund? remains the best way to check the status of a refund, the IRS said.


So the big tax reduction promised by president Trump will occur next year (2019).

So was it just me or did it really, really, really pour down rain about 05:00 on Tuesday morning?

There are over 1,200 and nearly 1,500 national days. Don’t miss a single one.

1.     The WAPO AED group has two CPR Anytime kits that are intended to allow people to train themselves in hands-only CPR.  The time required to train yourself is about 30 minutes. 

2.     Each WAPO responder is trained in CPR as well as the usage of an AED. However, the first person on the scene is normally a spouse or other member of the household.  Thus, it is best for everyone to be trained in CPR.  Contact one of our facilitators to learn more:

a.     LarryEamigh   

     (352) 753- 7449  larry@eamigh.com

b.     Ross Irlam        

     (352) 561-4003  rossirlam@gmail.com

c.      JerryTumbush - 

     (352) 430-1657  jtumbush@hotmail.com

3. They will coordinate the availability of a CPR Anytime kit with Mini-Anne  for you to check out and learn CPR.


Here's how to use the Mini-Anne you just checked out:

      1.     Play the DVD inside the CPR Anytime Kit.  The DVD includes instructions for inflating the mannequin.  There are sanitizers in the kit if you wish to sanitize the mannequin before inflating it.  There is a clicker in the mannequin that clicks when you have depressed the chest of the mannequin sufficiently.  Some people will have trouble making the clicker click.  Do your best and remember what is said on the DVD, “Any CPR is better than no CPR.”

a.     When the DVD initializes, select English.

b.    Select “Learn Adult Hands-Only” CPR and follow the verbal instructions.

c.     If you wish to practice, select “Practice Hands-Only CPR” on the DVD.

     2.     There are other lifesaving related topics on the DVD that are available to watch.

      3.     Please return the CPR anytime kit when you are finished with it to Larry and thanks for learning CPR.

So why link to sites that are NEVER available?  Good question. Let's start a quest to find sites that are more amenable. (Of course, you may have to click around to find the right game but.......and then there's the advertisements you have to suffer through.... but all-in-all it does get you to some games to sooth your mind.)

NOTE:  You may be using up any data time you signed up for unless you have an unlimited plan....

For the most part, I have avoided any site that wants you to "sign up" or give them information (that can only be used to try to sell you something or is needed to put you on a list that others obtain). Avoid these type of sites at all costs.  The hassle just isn't worth it.....

"Here Comes the Rain Again" is a 1984 song by British duo Eurythmics. It was written by group members Annie Lennox and David A. Stewart and produced by Stewart. The song was released on 12 January 1984 as the third single in the UK from the album Touch and in the United States as the first single. It became Eurythmics' second Top 10 U.S. hit, peaking at number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. "Here Comes the Rain Again" hit number eight in the UK Singles Chart, becoming their fifth consecutive Top 10 single in that country.

Stewart explained to Songfacts that creating a melancholy mood in his songs is something at which he excels. He said: "'Here Comes the Rain Again' is kind of a perfect one where it has a mixture of things, because I'm playing a b-minor, but then I change it to put a b-natural (sic – the song is in A minor) in, and so it kind of feels like that minor is suspended, or major. So it's kind of a weird course. And of course that starts the whole song, and the whole song was about that undecided thing, like here comes depression, or here comes that downward spiral. But then it goes, 'so talk to me like lovers do.' It's the wandering in and out of melancholy, a dark beauty that sort of is like the rose that's when it's darkest unfolding and bloodred just before the garden, dies. And capturing that in kind of oblique statements and sentiments."

The string arrangements by Michael Kamen were performed by members of the British Philharmonic Orchestra. However, due to the limited space in the studio, the Church, the players had to improvise by recording their parts in other parts of the studio. The song was then mixed by blending the orchestral tracks on top of the original synthesized backing track.

During Eurythmics reunion "Peacetour" they performed an in-studio concert for the A&E Network in the U.S. Dave Stewart revealed that the lyrics to the song came into being after an argument between him and Lennox while they were doing some songwriting in New York City's Columbus Hotel. The basic melody had already been written and Lennox looked out the window after their fight and noticed it was starting to rain. She announced, "Here comes the rain again."

The running time for "Here Comes the Rain Again" is in actuality about five minutes long and was edited on the Touch album (fading out at approximately four-and-a-half minutes). Although it was edited even further for its single and video release, many U.S. radio stations played the full-length version of it. The entire five-minute version did not appear on any Eurythmics album until the U.S. edition of Greatest Hits in 1991.

In the UK, the single became Eurythmics' fifth Top 10 hit, peaking at #8. It was the duo's second top ten hit in the United States, peaking at #4 in March 1984.
