Prepare, Print and e-File for Free with TurboTax

The last time we paid to have our taxes done, the guy charged us $160 and refused to give us the child tax credit or earned income credit, something like that. He said we didn’t need it or qualify for it or some such nonsense. I knew he was wrong, but also had a...

A New Skirt For Honey Nut Sewn From Owee’s Jeans

Since I got my sewing machine last month I haven’t really done much with it. Mostly repairing clothing and blankets and making cloth napkins. Nothing too exciting. Nothing to complicated. I needed a bit of time to get to know my new machine and get back into sewing on a machine again. I used...
