TWW is The Warped Woodturner who is a local artist living in a suburb of Springbrook, WI (pop 87). His mission is to use a wood lathe to make interesting but mostly useless objects from locally-sequestered carbon for tourists to bring back to the city to give to people they had to buy something for but don't like that well. His target market is the senior citizens since their vision is not as good as it used to be so cannot see the defects as well.

THEY are out there
TWW went to file his taxes today with the H & Block computer prepaper contraption and needed to use his charge card for WI taxes. He then remembered he no longer had a Mastercharge card since the new one was being sent from Florida to replace the old one. The last new one he got on Wednesday was being replaced the day he got it. When he called Mastercharge on Wednesday to activate that card he forgot his secret code so got transferred to their fraud people. He thought he was in lots of trouble but it turned out the wrong kind of trouble. That very day someone out in California (does this sound familiar since it happened with a VISA card in December inb California too?) and also in Italy were charging things on his new card before he even got it. The Mastercharge people have been great on getting him the new card by the way. (they get kudos for customer service). But the big thing here is THEY are out there and you cannot see them and they want your tax return so file soon. Stay safe.
