Tax Time Reminders

Every tax time, I have to break out my checklists to be sure I cover off all the tasks needed to prepare an accurate tax return.

You see, as an American and a Christian, I believe that I should render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s. But, not a penny more than he deserves. That means I have to accurately account for all sales and all expenses.

Why Am I Always Behind Come Tax Time?

Here it is, the end of another fantastic year, and I’m just now getting started on my bookkeeping. Again?

I know I’ve said that success requires you know how your business is doing by keeping your bookkeeping up-to-date. I guess I should be following my own advice.

Working on My Motorola Xoom

Last Friday, on release day, I picked up my new Motorola Xoom from my local Best Buy.

So far, I am not disappointed in its performance, nor its future. I like my Xoom…!

It is lightweight. I purchased the optional case/stand for it. The added protection keeps my screen intact.

Apps are scarce for this tablet, but I find that the many Android apps seem to work fine.

Battery life? Easily 10 hours of active use.

How about typing? Well that is a problem I’ll overcome with time. The virtual keyboard is about 9 inches wide, and the keys are large enough for my chunky thumbs to be able to hit them with few misses.

I guess if I was a teen texter, I would be a better typer.

I’m still exploring capability and apps. I find it like a big PDA.

Let me know what you think of Your Motorola Xoom…
