What I wish I knew - second year

Hey,

It's been a while.  Don't know if anyone is listening or reading.  But here's a thought.  Instead of my annual rant and rave about the tax man coming, how about I tell you how I keep track of stuff so that when I have to go into the tax man (or THE MAN) as I'll be calling him from here on out (as in  don't let the man get you down).  Anyhoo, I digress.
