Question by j-dog: How much of a tax refund will i get for mortgage interest paid?
in california. paid almost $ 14,000 in interest
give me a ball park figure of what this ADDS to the refund. I know its not dollar for dollar. no need to get technical
around 65k income. single.
Answer by tro
the mortgage interest is only part of your itemized deductions so your $ 14k of mortgage interest does not translate to an exact amount of refund
the itemized deductions total reduce your AGI to a taxable income, but not $ 1 for $ 1

Got my red dress on

Well, technically, this young lady’s thermos bottle doesn’t quite match her dress … but who cares? Meanwhile, nobody else was paying any attention…
Location: this is Verdi Square, looking north towards 73rd Street and Broadway.
Note: this photo was combined with images of other people in a separate Flickr image by Women Without Borders; you can see it here. It was also published in a Mar 31, 2009 blog entitled "New York beste stad voor one-night stands." I may well have thought the photo should be published every day, but in fact it didn’t get published again until a Nov 8, 2010 blog titled "Slimming Dresses – Clever Style Makes Every Body Look Slender."
Moving into 2011, the photo was published in a Mar 15, 2011 blog titled "Получил свое красное платье на фотографии, что надо Корзина платье Фото."
Day 359/365 – Friday Night, Restaurant Night
Image by Kevin H.
When I was a kid I looked forward to Friday nights, because that was the night my family always went out to dinner. I’m guessing we went out to eat on Fridays because that was the day Pops got paid. Generally we didn’t go anywhere fancy. There were about 8-10 different local restaurants that we’d take turns making the rounds of on Friday nights. Still, there was something fun and exciting about going out to eat.
Tonight I met my friend Pia for dinner at The Source, Wolfgang Puck’s restaurant and lounge in Washington, DC. Pia was running late, so I ordered myself a frou frou pear cocktail and just hung out in the lounge to wait. The photo above is of the corner booth in the lounge. I’d been wanting to try The Source for the past several months, so when Pia said she was going to be in town today and asked if I wanted to meet up with her for dinner it seemed like the perfect opportunity to check it out.
The Source is a very attractively designed space. It’s modern, but not cold or sterile. The downstairs portion is occupied by the lounge, with the restaurant upstairs. The cocktails there were very good, as were the appetizers. The entrees are just okay, but the dessert is good. Final verdict — I don’t think I’d go back to The Source for dinner, but I would certainly go there for drinks and appetizers.

Eastern tailed blues are very common butterflies here. They’re tiny–wingspan maybe 1" (2.5cm)–and they fly low, so I see them often. I couldn’t tell what it was, but something on the ground had eleven of them collected all in a group, paying no attention to me whatsoever. They must’ve been having some party. That’s a lot of tiny and cute in one spot!
