Cocktails, Apple conundrums, taxes and other assorted stuff

The Tired Donkey

Sitting Donkey
The Tired Donkey blogs about cocktails, ways to get the most out of your Mac at home, work, college . . . wherever. He used to write about the unending abuse suffered by the 51% of Americans who actually pay the federal income tax. But this became too depressing, and, frankly, no one wanted to read it.

Nevertheless, if you came here looking for the Tired Donkey's brilliant analysis of our dim-witted tax system, you can still find his earlier posts. Just check the archives or the

Genuine Thanks to a Donkey

Squealing Pig
The Tired Donkey must begin by letting his loyal readers know that he has not died. In fact, he is not even injured. Just busier than usual with his day job. He finds it unlikely that he will ever again be moving at the post-a-day clip he sustained early in the life of The Tired Donkey, but he is by no means done.

In the meantime, he must say that he is made even more tired than usual with the “where are new posts” whining of some of his readers who never contribute anything at all to the site. The Tired Donkey would prefer that this blog not be a one-way communication medium; if his readers would occasionally post comments or send him a substantive email (tireddonkey@tireddonkey.com) rather than just squealing like hungry pigs, it would be helpful.

And now to business. The Tired Donkey has received what he believes to be his first real thanks from a
Freeloader, and it is set forth in its entirety below:

____________________________

Now, the Tired Donkey will be the first to admit that this Freeloader certainly has a name that is hard to pronounce. And a real problem with spelling. In fact, the Tired Donkey cannot even take a guess at the meaning of “EwSphaTB,” though he can observed that the capitalization would appear a bit over-the-top even for a diarist of
Dr. Johnson’s era. But these are quibbles. In the end, the Tired Donkey must simply say, “You’re welcome.”
