If I take some time and order now I am sure that I will get some of the Christmas gifts that I need for the up and coming Christmas gift giving exchanges. Last there were a few things that I kept putting off and it made me a nervous wreck. It really took some of the fun out of the holidays, stressing that there wouldn’t be anything for me to give back to some of the good folks I knew were giving me some pretty nice gifts. I really don’t want that to happen again!No Comments »

It’s good to know that not all attorney practices are totally in their field to make a fortune off of people in their times of need. I have always heard that there are lawyers will do a case now and then “pro bono” which is a fancy legal phrase that means “for free” and/or “no charge” but I have never known anyone that has received any legal pro bono, but I’ve heard stories.
A good friend of mine has some how managed to convience the EGH Law Firm to do just that! I don’t know all the details because she isn’t putting a lot of details on FaceBook and we don’t call each other on the phone all that much these past few years. She doesn’t much care to put a lot of personal information online. But I hope they do her justice. And just maybe when this case is all done and said with she might be more open about talking about it.No Comments »
I don’t have the time or much opportunity these days to read much more than the newspaper or a magazine or a Reader’s Digest perhaps, which I always has several copies conveniently located in the bathrooms in the house. But that doesn’t mean that once in a while I’ll find a book that really interests me and I will take the time to do what I can in reading it all the way to the end.
My daughter actually had me in mind when she and her friends went to the local flea market yesterday when she was looking through a box of books that were being given away for free. She is an avid reader and loves looking for new and exciting books to bring home and when she sees books that are being given away she usually walks away with an arm load.
This box contained a book written by Jimmy Buffett, by the name of “A Salty Piece of Land” a novel. She knows that her dad and I are both avid Jimmy Buffett fans from way back and she went ahead and picked it up for me along with a bunch of other ones for her from this box of free reading materials. That was a pleasant surprise, she is always surprising us with things, and they are not usually on the pleasant side I’m sorry to say.No Comments »
I really have to admire any business, small or large, that does it’s part in producing environmental friendly products and that takes advantage of any type of greenery that they can these days. I have a friend that works for such as company by the name of American Home Craft Inc which is located in California and they are “leading the green revolution” with their technology that they have worked so hard to achieve.
She tells me that the employees are very proud of that fact also, which is a good thing. The department that she works in she tells me, are all very nice and seem like a close knit family to her all ready, and how they are all very devoted to the company and what it stands and strives for, and they have a good time while doing so in the process, she loves it there, it’s all good! Is it possible that the people that really love and care about our Mother Earth and our environment are full of love are really care about other people that are sharing the world with. If that is the case then I need to start hanging around more people like that because other folks are just getting on my nerves and not making me feel good about myself which is the kind of people we all need to surround ourselves with, right?No Comments »
There are many reasons that I have cut back my time on Facebook. One of the reasons is that it just drives me crazy to see what the young people of the world are putting on there for the whole world to see. And it isn’t just the younger generation, but the majority of it is and no matter what I try to tell them about what could happen if certain people see this stuff, they just don’t get it and continue to post crap that they will eventually pay the price for.
The majority of these people are relatives of mine of some sort, so I do have a vested interest in what they are doing. Many are dealing with the courts and various legal organizations – many are trying to keep or get their young children back from the courts or other relatives. So when I see them post things such as this Wall Poster that I cut and pasted on here today (and this is pretty mild in comparison to some of the stuff that they put there) I try and encourage them to stop and think before hitting the Submit key.
My mother and father drilled into our heads way long ago when the first computers come out and the Internet started to become more and more important and vital to our daily lives something that I have repeated over and over to people in order to make my point. It is most unfortunate that I seem to be talking to deaf ears and have even pissed a few of them off and they have “unfriended” me, what a shame.
My parents used to say “Don’t put anything on the Internet (and that includes all of today’s technologies that we have access to most days and evenings) that you wouldn’t take the time to write in LARGE letters on a HUGE Billboard that stands right in your front yard! I just can’t think of a better way to get the point across. My parents were also fond of saying “It’s too bad that youth is wasted on the young!”No Comments »
