Hi everyone,

I guess you could say that I'm one of the few "lucky" ones. Being married to a
Bussiness Education Teacher I don't spend very much time on my tax return. In
fact the little amount of time I spend is almost criminal...I have learned to
sign at the X. My hubby has jokingly informed me that some day he's going to
slip the divorce papers to me this way and I'll just sign my now I do
make sure that I glance at the heading on the top of the page to be sure of what
I'm signing. ;-)

So you'll understand when I brag that I have already returned my Norman Webb
survey and I encourage others to do it now with out delay. It isn't difficult
and we do all owe it to the program.

So get those survey papers mailed with your tax returns....NOOOOOO>... not in
the same envelope, just at the same time!
