Creating a Chart of Accounts for a Small Restaurant

Independent restaurant owners often do their own bookkeeping. Even if they hire a professional accountant at year's end, they may save considerable money by handling the weekly tasks themselves. Setting up a chart of accounts to fit the restaurant needs generally requires customizing the default choices of any accounting program. The selection of sales and cost of goods accounts on most systems does not provide for the separation of food and beverage categories that are needed. Even the leading bookkeeping program for small business, while it has a default selection for restaurants, fails to provide all of the accounts that most restaurant owners require. In addition, many of the expense accounts that are added are rarely used, leading to confusion during data entry, and do not help with the overview of the business finances. The National Restaurant Association publishes a book titled Uniform System of Accounts for Restaurants. The book provides detailed descriptions of … [Read more...]

Andy Stanley's Upside of Tension Vs Problem Solving Conflict Resolution

Andy Stanley, from North Point Community Church in Alpharetta, GA, is next up in my series on the 2010 Willow Creek Global Leadership Summit. The subject matter was foreign to me, as I have always tended toward resolving tensions and keeping my personal space a "zero drama zone." I was pretty proud of my problem solving conflict resolution skills. Apparently, I had something important to learn. Andy began by stating that in every organization there are problems that should not be solved and tensions that should not be resolved. My curiosity was piqued, but I was not expecting to be convinced of this. Andy's point was that if you resolve these tensions, you will only be creating new and different tensions, thus creating a barrier to progress. In simpler terms, moving from one tension to the next keeps you focused on the tensions rather than the future. Progress depends on successfully managing these tensions. Obviously there are some problems that need to be … [Read more...]

The Truth About Husqvarna Lawn Mowers

As a publisher-reviewer, I review many equipments, and now it's the turn of lawn mowers. Looking at lawn mowers from a buyer's angle, I tried to list my expectations. Firstly, the mower should do what it's meant to do, ie, mow lawns efficiently. Next, it should fulfill the promise the seller makes to prospective buyers. And most importantly, the price should be reasonable and competitive. Cutting a long story short, I zeroed in on a popular brand of lawn mowers - Husqvarna. Do They Have Enough Models? You need to make a basic choice between walk-behind and ride-on mowers. The size of your lawn and how frequently you mow it should help you decide which one you want. Some users may take factors, such as mulching ability, and side discharge, into account, before deciding. Husqvarna offers walk-behind mowers in several variants: the push type, the self propelled type, electrical mowers, and battery operated mowers. Ride-on mowers have more maneuverability and … [Read more...]

Lexmark Error Message, Left Cartridge Incorrect or Right Cartridge Incorrect

Several months ago I had purchased my Mother-in-law a new Lexmark X9575 as an easy way to provide print, fax and copy functionality in one unit. She is not the most technically proficient person in the world. So, I wanted to get her something that is easy to use and maintain. The Lexmark 9575 is what is considered a thermal inkjet. This machine produces black prints in up to 1200 x 1200 dpi and color prints up to 4800 x 2400 dpi. It prints 33 pages per minute in black and 28 pages per minute in color. So, this machine has top end specs for a relatively low cost. Surprisingly this unit comes standard with the # 43XL color and # 44XL black ink cartridge out of the box. XL is a designation that means High Yield. But, it never fails that after approximately 200 prints it came time to change out the printer ink. Being the technician of the family I was called to show her how easy it is to swap out these printer cartridges. After all I had worked at CompUSA for almost four years. … [Read more...]

You may assume that all videos are streaming, but you'll be surprised to know that most are not. So what are these two methods? How do they differ? What are the advantages and disadvantages of both?

How to Get Your Own NFL Personal Checks

Yup, you're a real NFL football fan, not some casual bandwagoner. You already have a team jersey and a jacket, a poster of your favorite player on your wall, and maybe even an autographed picture or helmet. Now, tired of writing personal checks on boring standard bank paper or worse yet, pastel colors with balloons or animals, you think it would be cool to have some that sport the logo and graphics of your favorite NFL team. "Yesss! Finally, some checks that I can be proud to put my signature on ..." you think to yourself. But chances are you will not be so enthusiastic after conducting a Google search. Post why? Thanks (or no thanks) to licensing restrictions and who knows what else, there are only 6 official NFL team checks available from just two banks - Bank of America offers checks for the Carolina Panthers, Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots, & the Washington Redskins , while US Bank carries the Denver Broncos and Minnesota Vikings.
