if I don't have a computer virus that costs me $50 per year or $100 in the past 5 years, why would I pay for anti-virus?

This person had a great start in life, an early exotic present:
 Mr. Allen Swift:  Born - 1908 - Died  2010 owned and drove the same car for 82 years!
 Can you imagine even having the same car for 82 years?  Mr. Allen Swift (Springfield , Massachusetts) received this 1928 Rolls-Royce Piccadilly-P1 Roadster from his father, brand new - as a graduation gift in 1928.
  He drove it up until his death in 2010 at the age of 102.  He was the oldest living owner of a car that was purchased new...thought you'd like to see it. 
 Rolls Royce Phantom I 1928
 It was donated to a Springfield museum after his death.
It has 1,070,000 miles on it, still runs like a Swiss watch, dead silent at any speed and is in perfect cosmetic condition.
82 years - That's approximately 13,048 miles per year (1087 per month).
 1,070,000 that's miles not kilometres.
 That's British engineering of a bygone era.
I don't think they make them like this anymore..

Now, I can't see Herschel's midsection, but he just looks like a guy that could suit up, still.    B/t him, Jerry Rice and Gary Player, those guys seem to be ageless.

Still stick with the preparer (only because they run my wife's group's accounting, and we pay next to nothing for it as individuals).   I will say the total # of pages on the return are down by about 20% since 2017, not that it is indicative of much of anything,  takes up less space in the file cabinet I guess.

simple issue of the payers name being more than 28 characters on the 1099-DIV form

went thru the fed just fine, Iowa didn't like it and couldn't find where to edit it w/o help

I beat my head against the rock for an hour before asking for help - then it took support 20 minutes to find it.

things could simply work better
