I was thinking of the famous quote often attributed to Ben Franklin that “… in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” Many people know that part of the quote, but far fewer recall it was in the context of a letter he was writing about the Constitution, of which he said “has an appearance that promises permanency.” Thankfully, he’s been right about that so far.
Death and taxes — neither one is pleasant to think about, but both are a permanent part of life. As I write this, I’m getting ready to meet with my accountant to do the dreaded IRS filing for yet another year. And while no one likes to think about his or her own mortality, nor the mortality of loved ones, from time to time we are reminded that Franklin was right about that certainty, too.
Now that we have those two permanent fixtures in life addressed, how about we move on to another yearly inevitability, albeit one that is far more enjoyable — the yearly need to renew your subscription to Irrigation & Green Industry magazine. This task is not nearly as time consuming as filing your taxes. Completing the renewal should only take a minute or two, and the best part is you get to continue receiving your free subscription to the magazine for another year.
In fact, why don’t you take a minute and renew right now? All you have to do is visit www.igin.com/renew/L2V9BL, type in your account number (the one that appears right above your name on the mailing label), and fill out the form. After you’ve entered your contact information and selected your preferences, hit “submit.” All done!
When you think about all the things you have to do on a regular basis, like going to the dentist, changing the batteries on the smoke detectors or getting that annual flu shot, renewing your subscription to Irrigation & Green Industry is probably the easiest (and least painful) item on that list.
Thank you for taking the time to renew your subscription with us. It is important so we can continue providing you with information that can help you in your business. I’d hate to see you miss out. So, make that appointment to get your taxes done, renew your subscription, and take good care of yourself so that we don’t need worry about that other certainty in life just yet!
