Little known fact about Ireland

Little known fact about Ireland

Muckanaghederdauhaulia (Irish: Muiceanach idir Dhá Sháile) The longest name of a town in Ireland. It means "ridge, shaped like a pig's back, between two expanses of briny water"..  It is a 470 acre townland in Kilcummin, County Galway, Ireland.
It was formerly regarded as the longest place name in Ireland (22 letters), but awareness of longer names has recently challenged Muckanaghederdauhaulia for the title.

Bet you can't say Muckenaghederdauhaulia 10 times fast!!

Tax Time

          Income tax has been a part of our lives since 1862 when Congress began imposing taxes to support the Civil War during President Lincoln's term.  In 1913 the 16th Amendment made income tax a permanent fixture in our lives. Thanks President Wilson!!
          I thought I'd add a laugh to the sting of April 15th deadlines.  After all, laughs are free and non-taxable!
