  1. Filed taxes this way on February 1at but points still haven’t posted. Southwest says they can’t investigate until 45 days have passed

  2. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is magnificent blog. A fantastic read. I’ll certainly be back.|
