Ok! These are videos that were emailed to me and I now CLEAN THE CLUTTER from my harddrive and place them all here in my “Amusing Stuff” category. I suppose it’s okay to post these video files in my blog, as people were nice enough to FORWARD them to me! Some of them are cute! Some of the are interesting! Some of the them are silly! Some of them are X-RATED or OFFENSIVE (although, none of them are sexually explicity) and MAY include SWEARING … so, you might want to wait until the children are out of the room 🙂 [More]
CTV.ca | Winning numbers out in $30M Lotto 6/49 draw … but no winner! So, this Wednesday’s Lotto 6/49 draw should be over $40,000,000 top prize. The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp. surveyed winners of $1 million or more in early 2004 and found that about three-quarters of them did share the loot with family and friends. Here’s some other things they learned: * 89 per cent put the money in the bank * 35 per cent took a vacation * 35 per cent bought a new car * 30 per cent gave to charity * Seven per cent bought [More]
This will be my last post in my MEME section However .. don’t worry! I still plan to participate in them .. but will be posting them over in my other blog at this location: http://hartandyvonne.com/blog/category/meme/ It was precipitated by a comment suggesting that personal items (such as this) do not belong in business blogs … and it is probably a good idea anyway 🙂 TOPIC CATEGORY – CLOSED!
Too Cool For Internet Explorer? or Too Cool For FireFox? I prefer Internet Explorer. But – I do use firefox, netscape and opera when I am making major design changes for my websites and my blogs. I personally don’t care what browser you are using to read my blogs but I will try to make sure that you are able to.

Okay .. I was watching FUTURAMA recently .. the episode with one of the best comic genius lines in all animated cartoons … Leela: Fry this isn’t healthy. You’re living in the past. Fry: I’m rich! I can live whenever I want. Leela: But we’re your friends and we live here in the year 3000. Bender: Yeah.

This afternoon our water heater tank exploded. There was approximately 2 inches of water on the floor in the south section of my basement and a clear river flowing from the north part of my basement where the water heater tank was. Fortunately, a lot of my important documents and files and electronic items were deliberately placed off of the floor, for cases like this. I had built a step-floor where my permanent files are, that were the size of a 2″x4″ in height .. so I was okay. It was messy … it took a while to clean up [More]
Greetings. I have added a new “Page” today .. it’s in the right sidebar, just under the “Search” and my cute picture… I call it: Bloglines and Other Distractions I like the idea that I can add links to my site just as easily as content. What I didn’t like was using http://www.blogrolling.com because I have multiple accounts. I might be surfing one website – it may be Pet Related .. but I was logged in under my 1-800-HART account. Or, I might be surfing a small business or accounting website, but I was logged in under my PetLvr account. [More]
I touched briefly how I designed my own personal chart of accounts in an earlier article .. but recently I have redesigned the chart of accounts for a new client that seems to be working great for me. So, I thought I would pass that along. My current accounting software has the capability to create a chart of account design that holds up to 16 numbers … It is based and broken into 4 sections where you have to create this upon creation of the new chart of accounts. Once created, you cannot modify its design. * Account Number * [More]

Everytime I have created a new blog, I include a counter at the bottom of the page. There are a lot of free counters out there, but I chose to use http://www.StatsCounter.com free statistic for some apparent reason at the time, when I created my first blog and needed a counter.

I charge my time out by the hour. That translates to every 6 minutes counting as 0.1 hr that I can bill out. If you also bill out your time on an hourly basis, instead of a fee-basis, you probably have some system in place to keep track of your time. It’s so easy to get caught up in other matters these days … especially with the Internet, blogging, family life, pets, good weather, and so on and so on. We expect payment for our services and it’s only fair that our clients pay us what we bill them on [More]
