I have been poking at the never ending paper pile. While I am convinced that it has infinite depth, I have come to realize that it does have limited width. The paper will always come in, but I think soon I will be able to contain it. Meanwhile, it has not poked me back, and no paper cuts yet.
Paper, paper, by the score,
I don't like you any more.
Though in books, you're loved, you see,
The rest of the papers can just bite me!

There is a system coming along, developing, I just need to baby it along. Some people want all the auto stuff together, including titles and insurance on each vehicle. I want all auto repair stuff together, but insurance goes under insurance, and vital records all go together. What works for one has to be modified for another, and I'm getting to where my modifications will make sense for me.
