After much frustration, we decided to print out the 1040 form and have her file with paper.

Efile is the catch. People will pay on the promise of a faster refund.

Use the program, then print and mail.

Programs are a scam. Won’t let you print without paying. Doing it old school.

Efile.com and Turbo Tax let you prep and efile for free if using the simple form.

Does she need to file using Form 1040? That would be unusual for a student.

They say so but she has a small amount of a scholarship/grant that triggered a 1099-MISC which triggers a fee from the “free” programs.

She should be able to use 1040EZ but they phased that out.

I see. I just noticed Form 1040EZ has been discontinued.

I made the mistake of going into meta Facebook today. As part of the (unsuccessful) sixteen step log out process, they wanted to know if I wanted out of my own account or the wrong account. At one point I was asked to log in in order to log out.

I'm not doing anything, as I wait for my energy and stamina to return. I figured there's no time like the present.

I have their D620 pads on my mountain bike. I notice no difference in stopping performance between them and the stock B01S pads.

Maybe a bit noisier but pads are pads.

​​​​​​FWIW we haven't had any complaints at the shop about them even from folks that wanted OEM pads.

My mtb came with the B01S pads and there are a bunch of other Shimano part numbers that fit.

I've cancelled Prime so many times, I can do it in my sleep now.

This reminds me I haven't set a reminder for the end of my current free month, I better get on that.

It's too bad the House of Irish Coffee never became as common as Starbucks.

I’m waiting in line outside PennDOT to get a new photo license. Dad with his son in front of me. Dad keeps hocking loogies and the son smells like cheap body spray. Only 50 more minutes of this until the office opens.

Welcome to my Saturday morning.

Your weekends are mostly enviable. This weekend can only go up from here, I imagine.

Welcome to my Saturday morning.

I was renewing online recently and had to submit a photo taken within the last month or so. I had my wife take a very nice groomed picture and uploaded it. A few weeks later, my license comes back with an old pic that was taken when I had a beard and was totally homeless looking. The pic they used was from 2019. :rolleyes:

WTH

We can renew on line, which I did, but they send you a photo card and make you go to one of their places to have your photo taken and get the actual license. I ended up being taken first. There are probably 20+ people waiting in line outside the building. Pays to be the early bird. Next up in Rx kitty food then home for a little ride.

Going to another club ride today. Maybe I'll become a regular again. It's my 33rd year with the club.

abshipp 03-19-22 08:51 AM

Rained overnight and was very foggy/misty this morning so my commute and ride was pretty soggy.

Still beats driving.

Also, this never gets old:

I'm very happy with my new commuting backpack as well. Very stable on my back and had just enough room for everything :)

My wife and I have ridden with our club <40 years and were informed this week that we have been disinvited to some club rides for being too strong/fast. WTF? We are both over 70. :foo:

We have been ride leaders many years and we have never told anybody that they weren’t welcome to a club ride. :(

Also, I just payed our dues a couple weeks ago. Guess that we wasted our money.

You young whippersnappers shouldn't be riding with the octogenarians. Pick on the millenials.
