I just don't think you can help people find a burned out light bulb by explaining how a hydro dam works.

That is probably what I don't understand!
And may never. . .

I'm working on my income tax and so I am necessarily tied to my computer today for rules, laws, definitions, worksheets, income thresholds, etc.

What are you doing, if I may ask?

Waiting for my back to get better so I can get back to work. After months of wearing gum boots to work the first day with leather boots, I bent over to tie the laces and paid the price for that.

I've never heard good stuff about back injuries & treatment but this
http://www.amazon.com/The-Last-Well-.../dp/0773532544
had some interesting things to say.

People around me are getting whacked by accidents and health problems and even a suicide but so far the bullet with my name on it hasn't arrived.
When I do very seldom get sick or injured, they say "Remarkable recovery." I'd hate to see a bad one.

A while ago I read a Physician's Assistant Exam book just to see what these people have to know and now I'm surprised that any of us live to see adulthood. There are 35 year olds walking around with pacemakers.

If you make it to retirement and have things to compain about, you really have nothing to complain about.

Sounds like something Yogi Berra would say. . .

"90% of the game is half mental."[2]
"Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded."[2]
"When you come to a fork in the road, take it."[2]
"It's déjà vu all over again".
"You can observe a lot by watching."[2]
"Always go to other people's funerals, otherwise they won't go to yours."[2]
