Well miss weather played nice here and I was able to play tennis so hooray for me.

Dirt, I bet. Turbo tax won't be on my list for next year. Unfortunately, I itemize so I need all those hidden deducts.

Ann, really no visions of sugar plums dancing in our heads?!?!

I like almonds over cashews.

But if I can't have any, I'll happily settle for cashew-covered chocolates... :-)

chocoflash, So sorry for your loss. Hope the dog is feeling better. :)

Hi MadDog.

roadjet, A friend wasn't happy with what TurboTax said this year either. I still do my own as I don't have anything to itemize.

annette, Pineapple upside down cake is good. Never had chocolate covered cashews.

jayburt, It's still a bit windy here but much warmer today and low temps are rising starting tomorrow night. Icky white flakes yesterday though. :(

Cashews are so excellent plain/salted, not sure I want to spoil them with chocolate. But, maybe..... Chocolate is good on lots of things.....

Hi everyone! Hope this finds everyone well..and thanks for the shoutout and Hi squirre1

roadjet, it sure does ;)

Glad to see Ann back with us ;) and Yum,"Today is National Chocolate-Covered Cashews Day!" (even if I am days late)
@chocolateflash, sorry to hear that..remember though,the ones that are gone are there to greet us and lead us when we go, so its not forever as some think..

Stay safe everyone! and as for our weather, after a spring warmup {summer preview} we are back to cool weather, although that severe wind we had for almost 2 days is gone finally, strange as we are not usually windy here in the valley

Since my wife was killed in an auto accident a year ago, I'm again single and can go out to enjoy things like amaretto sometimes. It's either that or sit at home and watch the NBA playoffs. I'm at home tonight but not because of them. The dog has developed a case of indigestion and somebody(me) has to stay here to watch her.

I good go for some Amaretto right now.

Dirt, Me too. Turbo Tax shorted me a ton of money from the deductions available from previous years using my "Wizard of Taxes" lady. She is managing rehab but most likely will not return.

Mad, I bet it was awesome. You will have to give me the scoop on the down low. haha

First day in almost two weeks without rain. Whoo hoooo!!!

Ann, animal crackers are great. I use to buy them at SAMs in the huge containers. Much like the cheese balls, but not the cheese balls most people put out during holidays.

Mad, that trip to Thialand sounds fun.

Dirt, my usual tax lady had a stroke and was unreachable for two months and it took that long to find her. I didn't want to commit to someone else without seeing what happened to her first.

Jay, an awesome gumbo is worth doing a whole mess of wrong things.

DirtGirl - when I lived in Minneapolis, the landlord cut off the heat early in May - then a few days later we had a cold snap, my apartment dropped to maybe 55 or 60 degrees, and I got sick! It was a nice way to bring in spring, I'll tell ya... :-)

I've never had Eggs Benedict either, although after reading about hollandaise sauce, it sounds delicious. I know quite a few cheeseballs though! ;)

Hope you're all well and having a fun weekend so far. :)

spmaudio, Still kind of a shock going from 75 on thursday to rain and possible s*** next wednesday.

annette, Cheeseballs are good. One local grocery store deli has cranberry walnut cheeseballs around the holidays. Very good. Never have been able to get up the courage to eat eggs benedict mainly becuase of the hollandaise sauce.

MD didn't owe, so didn't procrastinate, although I paid in lots, and got peanuts back, hence the shells around my feet :)

What did you guys(and gals;) do with Ann?? tell the truth..did you lock her in the closet again? Let her out please

Jay, It is hard to share Louisiana food. It is best fresh out the pot and not re-heated.

Dirt, I think somebody didn't get the memo. I saw a Statue of Liberty guy waving a sign today.....I almost swerved....just kidding.

Hey Mad, I owed a bunch, due to the sale of some property, but paid up back in March! One set of returns I didn't file until yesterday I owed nothing on! Just hadn't gotten them done until late on Tuesday so....... Next year I am counting on a refund for something different.

So another beautiful spring day here in the Great state of Maine! The sun is out, the birds are singing and some of my flowers are up as is the rhubarb. Looking forward to getting out on my wood lot on Patriot's Day next Monday, to see how that fared this winter.

Patriot's Day is celebrated in Massachusetts as a state holiday and in Maine, which was part of Massachusetts until 1820, part of the Missouri Compromise, also as a state holiday. Apparently Wisconsin celebrates it as well but only in schools, and there they talk about "the shot heard round the world" and not our football team.... LOL. Fun fact, when Patriot's Day falls on TAX Day ( April 15th ) those of us in Maine and Massachusetts get an extra day to file!

Hope you all have a good day today.

Roadjet, we need to re-teach you the concept of 'sharing' lol

Tax-day goeth...and my money sooneth followed..

DG, why indeed! Its beautiful right now, the early flowers are blooming, the birds are singing, the leaves are coming out...but still wouldn't mind being in Hawaii right now! I see it on the screen as we fly by it on the way from LAX (LA) to Kingsford Smith Airport Sydney(Australia) it makes about the halfway part in that 14 hr. and 53 minute flight.I've heard its more fun to stop on Fiji though..

Guess we're still sharing that peach cobbler..which explains my tightening beltline..;) which is funny, because I'm not usually a guy with a gut.
