Something doesn't seem right, but you probably don't want to keep raking over it.
To be honest, now that we are not facing a $3600 IRS bill, I would just as soon drop the whole thing.

There should be a tuition deduction. It would wash out the supposed taxable income if the school kept the tuition. She needs to confirm that first.

I would think so. Should be able to check if there is a 1098-T without too much hassle.

One of the best versions of that song out there. Ahh, great memories of painstakingly working out that extended solo when I first got the album ...

I'm insanely jealous. Can't make music of any kind.

I can certainly listen to it though.

If it's any consolation, I've been at it for years and I still haven't got it right

One of my all time favorites, but I had never seen the extended video. Top rate.

Got a delivery from 'Lakeland' yesterday, but the pie dishes were far smaller that we had expected, wouldn't have been big enough for what we wanted. Rang them up today to tell them and arrange to return them.. the lady on the othere end of the phone said' Oh that's OK, we'll give you a full refund, but don't worry about returning them, just keep them or give them away to a charity shop or something as you are a regular customer'. Karma to 'Lakeland'.
