Live Younger – Need Help Now

So I am reading "Younger Next Year: Live Strong, Fit, and Sexy Until You're 80 and Beyond" by Chris Crowley and Henry Lodge, MD. Problem is, I need it to work tomorrow, if not sooner. How come I was the only one who received this as a Christmas gift from a family member? So apparently I have to learn to be a bit more selfish and put myself first when it comes to being healthy. I got the selfish and putting myself Read More

One of the issues during the rescue was that the bitter cold, combined with the water and the rotor wash from the rescue helicopter was that the windows could not be rolled down as Read More

Shifting Directions

This blog has been left kind of dormant for a long time. The last couple of weeks I have been researching what some call Web 2.0 technologies and in particular the concept of using social networking to promote my law firm.
