Bean There, Done That
Monthly Bookkeeping Wisdom From Your Friendly Bean-Counter
Backups are important in all aspects of life, right? I don’t need to tell you that. But here goes:
Anyway, you get the point: Backups are essential. Experts will back me up on this.
But when it comes to the key data upon which your business depends, are you sure you’re protected against a disastrous information loss?
As any parachutist or trash hauler will tell you, it’s absolutely critical that you keep your data backed up. Because you never know what will happen.
To make sure your data is secure and up-to-date, here are some suggestions…
… For Desktop Systems
… For Cloud-Based Backup Systems
Yes, as any Secret Agent will attest, you need to make sure your data is backed up. You never know when your office might be shaken or stirred, and you might need that backup to drop in on a reserve parachute (backwards and beeping loudly) to save the day.
- 1If a storm rolls in, and then moves sharply in the other direction (as they sometimes do here in Colorado), would you consider that a “cloud backup?”
- 2What is your interception-to-touchdown ratio? Use a pie chart; or, just send pie
- 3Is it time to consult your Friendly Bean Counter for ideas on making sure your accounting data is as secure as it needs to be?

Sadie’s Paw Prints
It’s The Dog Days Of Summer
Welcome to another edition of Sadie’s Paw Prints, where I, Dottie’s beloved four-legged fur pal, give you two-leggers the latest wisdom on hot canine topics of the day.
Know what really gets us dogs hot and bothered? That’s right: Getting too hot. We tell you every year NOT to leave us in enclosed spaces, such as your car, when the weather’s warm… but too many of you do that to too many of us anyway!
Did you know that, even with the windows “cracked,” the inside of your car can get twenty degrees hotter in about ten minutes?
We dogs run a bit hotter than you humans: Our normal body temperature is around 101 degrees. But we’re sensitive, folks. Anything over 103 is cause for alarm.
Dogs can get heat stroke when they get overly warm… and you don’t want to let that happen to your best buddy, do you?
If your dog is panting more than usual (which is what we dogs do to try to cool off, since we can’t sweat like you do)… or if you see us getting wobbly or behaving weirdly when the sun is beating down… take action right away. Get us to a cool place. Get us a drink. Maybe even get a cool wet towel to put over us.
And, if it’s really serious, you might want to call the vet. Quick! Every minute counts.
Really, don’t take chances with your fur babies during the hot summer season. Keep us from getting too warm, and everything will be cool! No sweat.
We’ve Got A Honey Of A Deal For You
This month’s Non-Profit Spotlight shines on the Katie Adams Conservation Fund – one of our favorite non-profit organizations – and we’re all a-buzz to tell you how you can provide some sweet support for some of the world’s poorest farmers.
Here’s something you might not know: Elephants (yes, elephants) can be a real menace to homesteading farmers in certain places of the world, such as Tanzania.
Imagine working your tail off as a poor African farmer, only to have elephants rampage through your farm, eating and trampling your crops, and destroying your entire family’s livelihood. It happens! In fact, it happens more frequently than you might guess.
But the experts at the Conservation Fund have come up with a sweet way to help protect these homesteads, and it’s as old as time (pretty much): Beehives.
Turns out elephants don’t care for bees. Bees sting their eyes and other soft-tissue parts of their big bodies, and nobody likes getting stung. Not even elephants. Especially not elephants!
So adding beehives around the perimeter of a farm does wonders to protect a homesteading family and their vital crops.
… And you can learn how buying a jar of honey from a Brighton beekeeper can help put beehives where they’re seriously needed in a far corner of the planet.
We think you’ll agree: It’s a sweet deal, all around.
Thanks for your help!
