We have radio!!!!!

I finally got hold of an XM radio tech who explained a couple of steps in activation that nobody else had bothered to tell me about.  Cliff is tickled to death:  lots of corny old songs with no commercials.

On another note, for the rest of you rednecks who get an income tax refund every year:  You can check on the status of your refund by going HERE on the IRS website.

I'm fully aware that financially responsible people try to have as small a refund as possible, or none at all.  "I'm not letting the government use MY money all year for nothing", they say.

Well, that wouldn't be me and Cliff.  Our income tax refund is as close as we'll ever come to winning the lottery.  Have a blast with our money, Uncle Sam.  Thanks for giving it back to us in a heap.

It's way better to get a refund than to owe, that's for sure!
Glad you got the radio working.

Kevin and I call tax time "redneck Christmas"!  We eat at a more expensive place than we do the rest of the year, buy a toy or so, and pay off a couple of bills.  I love it.

Donna I agree with you.  For many years it has been a manner of forced savings for me.  I could do a little more at Christmas because I knew my refund was not far away.  And I bought my fur coat with that in mind.  

If if wasn't for Uncle, I would not have been able to save a nickel.
