     - Vera Brittain

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.
     - Anne Dudley Bradstreet, 1612 - 1672

Spring is here once again, the time when flowers begin to bud, birds sing sweetly and primal urges send men and women searching for that elusive joy in life - tax deductions.
     - Matt Wixon
