...the Ides of March!" It's one of those important dates -- March 15, the corporate tax deadline -- that has ruled my life for the past thirty-some years... so it is good to see it pass. I should have listened to Shakespeare.
... and I somehow fried my calculator! The adding-machine tape, as it was coming to its end, unbeknownst to me, was rolling back around the spool and jamming up, and the machine had a meltdown. As it sizzled away, I wisely unplugged it and avoided burning the office down.
... so I'm getting used to a new calculator today, as this Ides fades into history.
