I graduated from Georgetown nearly a year ago, but it took me that long to finally get the sort of job that I was hoping to get right then. I had to wait for some people in the department to retire, although I am still on a long waiting list for a parking spot.

It was little pieces of copper pipe and pieces of bare wire. The previous owner said his grandfather kept putting scrap pieces in the shed from his job as an electrician and a plumber. He told us we could have it all with the cabin and property we were buying.

Now we have a place that is much more than a cabin in the woods. It is a second home to us. Continue reading “We Paid for Our Cabin Renovations with Scrap Copper”

I needed to have an pay stub generator that would allow me to take miscellaneous deductions out of people’s pay. A lot of the ones that I had heard about only allowed for taxes and fees, but not for miscellaneous reasons. The reason why I needed this was important too.
There are times where I will give someone an advance on their pay. This can be for a number of different reasons. Continue reading “They Like the Pay Stubs Too”
