  • Receiving a lot of non-related voice mail messages, thanks to Google directing people to our website, but people not reading the details.
  • Jenie and I met with Gillis for coffee to discuss board responsibilities.
  • Quickbooks keep crashing repeatedly. Spent over an hour troubleshooting before I found a (for now!) fix.
  • File Federal and State tax forms.
  • Review census data. 2021 data for local areas not yet released.
  • Last month I was in correspondence with HGTV regarding photo usage. Requested David Burton look over a release they requested we sign. Update: David gave his approval, but when I got back with HGTV there were all sorts of complications and hoops, so I decided it wasn't worth the time/exposure risk and let it go.
