To give y'all an idea of what we're up to in Chez Cheesus this week:

My sister arrives tomorrow at 13:50, local time.  My daughter and I have cleaned everything in the house, including the ceiling fans, the tables, the chairs, the sofa slipcovers, the walls, the floors, the ceilings, the bathrooms and we even swept and vacuumed the front porch rug.  I don't care if she says "I'm coming to see you guys, not the house", I know better.  Tomorrow will be the last passes with the broom, mop, vacuum and duster before I pick her up at the airport and take her to her hotel.

My husband, bless his soul, has been cooking up a storm between tasks at work.  He's been making a galette for lunch, cookies, cheesecake and a fruit tart.  Friday night is expected to be family dinner night - in addition to my sister, my husband and the youngest daughter - we're expecting my oldest daughter, her two daughters, the grandson-in-law, grandson and son-in-law.  I can seat 6 at the dining table, so I guess I'm going to have to whip out a kids' table as well.  The menu will be salad, manicotti, ravioli, chicken parmigiana, roasted summer squash and a dessert selection of cookies, fruit tart, cheesecake, peach ginger galette, and tiramisu.

Suffice to say, it's been a bit busy.

A lawsuit seeking to block President Biden's plan to cancel some student debt claims the policy is not only illegal but could inflict harm on borrowers in some states who would be forced to pay taxes on the forgiven amount.

The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana on Tuesday, is the first significant legal action seeking to invalidate Biden's policy before it takes effect.

The Pacific Legal Foundation, the conservative public interest law firm in California that is backing the lawsuit, asserts that the executive branch lacks the authority to create a new forgiveness policy and is usurping Congress's power to make law. The suit was filed on behalf of Frank Garrison, an attorney who works for the foundation and lives in Indiana.

Republican state attorneys general and lawmakers have been exploring the possibility of a lawsuit against Biden's forgiveness plan, which critics have also assailed as fiscally irresponsible. The Job Creators Network pledged to sue the administration once the Education Department guidance has been released.

In its lawsuit, the foundation may have the one thing legal experts said was needed to make a legitimate case: a client with the standing to sue.

Garrison said he has been working toward having his federal student loans canceled through a program that erases the debt of public servants after 10 years of payments and service. Participants in that Public Service Loan Forgiveness program do not have to pay federal or state taxes.

However, Biden's plan could result in borrowers in several states, including Indiana, being required to pay local tax bills, although they would not be subject to federal taxes.

Our team was asked to produce a "spooky" IT story to add to our October newsletter. My contribution:

The Mystery in the Service Department.

"The computer in the back doesn't have internet," said the technician. This seemed simple enough; check the cables, unplug it, plug it back in - the usual steps for resolution stirred in my head. I found the sad and dirty little computer in a neglected corner of the service center.

Ethernet cord? Plugged in both on the computer and into an unlabeled jack haphazardly laying near the wall. The cable itself tested fine, but the jack was not providing internet. Ok fine. I try a different port, and then another, and then yet another. I find a different set of possible ports and they all couldn't provide internet either. This just became a little more complicated. Where did these ethernet ports go? I used a special tool to get an idea - it couldn't tell me anything. I ran my fingers along various filthy and tangled cables in a futile attempt to see where they might be going. Into the ceiling? Into the wall? It wasn't at all clear. After a few phone calls and asking around, I was directed to a room with an unassuming closet. I opened the door to pure IT horror: power strips plugged into other power strips, a veritable rats nest of wires (and evidence of actual rats), random pieces of equipment plugged into one another with no real explanation of why, mystery stains, warped shelves, trash - and perhaps most importantly - no clear answer to how anything was getting internet in that entire office.

It took an extra IT technician, an afternoon of tracing and labeling, and lots of hand sanitizer to get to the bottom of it all.

The problem isn't exactly where they are building, it's HOW they are building. There are some smarter ways to rebuild. It's rebuilding the same type of risky structures that's the waste of money.
