Oh girlfriend, it was nice to chat with you online this morning. But really bummed me out to hear about the trouble your brother had over the weekend. Don’t want to bust you out in my blog, so I won’t go into the details but want to share some thoughts with you.
While working for the law firm downtown, I learned a few things that I want to share with everyone who reads my blog.
First off, DO NOT EVER go to court and represent yourself. GET A GOOD LAWYER! The prosecuting attorney and the judge will eat you up if you try to go it alone!
Second, find a GOOD LAWYER who specializes in the type of case with which you need help. A DWI lawyer is not the best resource for a divorce. A personal injury attorney is not the best way to stay out of jail if you have a criminal charge to face. Etc.
I know of a DWI attorney in the Raleigh NC area who might help your brother, Mark T. McCullough, who is well known for being a good DWI lawyer. He has a good website with contact info. If you need a good DWI Raleigh NC lawyer, you should at least talk to him and hear what he has to say.
Hope it all works out.

The week end turned out pleasant enough, Saturday the winds were totally outrageous, so I did a bunch of errands and things around the house that kept me from being blown away outside. All the blooms on my pear trees were blown completely off and are now standing naked in my backyard, how awkward! Sunday was spent doing some much needed yard work and tending to my future garden in progress. It got up to 70 degrees and this morning I see some sunburn on my nose, cheeks and forehead, guess I’ll need to buy a hat for my gardening ventures, in order to protect my face this summer.
Saturday afternoon a friend from work came by, we had dinner, a few drinks, some laughs and then went on my computer for a time being. He is a whiz online and always shows me the most interesting and enlightening things when he comes over and we spend some time online.
We ended up talking about and checking out different webhosting options. We referenced the site of Webhostinggeeks.com, a site that offers independent web hosting reviews and ratings of the ten top web hosts available. I wasn’t surprised to see Go Daddy on their list as the largest web hosting, while Yahoo came in as the most reliable of them all.
All ten rated hosts offer cheap professional web hosting, with their services available for $10 and under per month. They all offer one free domain, along with a 30 day money back guarantee. A valuable resource before making the important decision of committing to a web hosting company for your web hosting needs. It’s all good!

It really shocked me when my mother turned down my invitation to go to the movies because she is very paranoid about catching bed bugs. No matter what I said or did she firmly kept refusing and my daughter twisted the whole thing around to where she thinks her grandmother doesn’t want to go to the movies with us because of her. This has been a constant battle between the three generations of females that just can’t seem to communicate with one another without someone taking it the wrong way and/or getting their feelings hurt on some type of level, sigh…..
It is a well known fact that bed bugs are becoming a huge issue with tons of people everywhere, as well as head lice. The pest control companies are being kept crazy busy and people are flocking to find new ways to prevent the spread of these unwanted critters, but this can’t make us so paranoid that it interferes with your daily life and relationships that we cherish and are hard to come by these days.
Funny thing is that my mother and step-father are currently on their way to Florida for a couple of weeks visiting friends and relatives and enjoying all that the “Land of Sunshine” has to offer. They plan on staying at various motels/hotels on their way down and back up again, which are more likely to infect someone with numerous unwanted critters. Go figure!

My best friend is looking for ways to make some extra money. She has came up with the idea of making and selling jewelry at the local flea market, which is right outside of the city limits and is lately always jammed packed full of vendors and buying customers each Saturday and Sunday. She has been dabbling in beads for a few years and has gotten quite good at it, so it only makes sense that she can put her new found talent on the market and make a few bucks to help out during these horrible economic stressful times.
She has turned to the Internet and has found some good quality wholesale beads, chains, supplies, findings, tools, videos, DVDs and everything under the sun that she would need to get her up and running. They frequently have 99 cent sales which she could take advantage of with many of their items at 90% off retail prices. That is a nice chunk of change to be saved.
I took a look at the site myself and was happy to see all the beautiful gemstone beads that they have listed, with Jade being my personal favorite. These semi precious gemstone beads give jewelry a lasting value that can last a life time and are nice looking and very affordable for what she has in mind.

Eric is a 17 year old high school drop out that lives next door. I worry about the boy sometimes, but yesterday he announced that he and a few other of his friends had put together a CD of their music and promises me a copy as soon as they get them all in order and ready for distribution. I think it is a great idea and wish them all the luck in the world with their endeavour. I’ve heard them play through out the years, since they are right next door and know the quality of their work. They are planning on hitting several of the local clubs and even a few across the state line in an effort to get their music played out there. Maybe one evening I will be able to go with them, it sounds like fun!
He is currently looking for decent CD sleeves, so I referred him to psprint.com where they offer CD/DVD/VCD sleeves at discount prices. They use top of the line quality stock and offer free samples, which I think is cool. I’m familiar with their work due to the using of them at my work a time or two for their poster printing services, so I feel comfortable referring them to him and his musician friends.
