If You Were An Attorney, Would You Join The Bar Association?

I keep flirting with the idea of actively becoming a member of and being involved consistently with the local chapter of the Legal Secretaries Association (LSI). I know. It's not called that now. It's "Legal Professionals." However, you slice it, it's a great group of women and men, who get together to network and share news and information, tips and useful items about our jobs.

Since fall is around the corner, why not turn over a new leaf (get it - fall leaves?) and join today. We'll, at least attend a meeting. There's a conference coming up in Sacramento in November. So, you can't say you didn't know about it. You heard about it here.

November 11-13, 2011
November Conference
Sacramento, CA

This post is really for me - not you. Because remember when you point a finger, three more are pointing back at you.

Have a great work-week! We've already made it through Monday!

"Feast of Fools" The Newest Novel from James Lee Burke

From Amazon:

Sheriff Hackberry Holland patrols a small Southwest Texas border town with a deep and abiding respect for the citizens in his care. Still mourning the loss of his cherished wife and locked in a perilous almost-romance with his deputy, Pam Tibbs, a woman many decades his junior, Hackberry feeds off the deeds of evil men to keep his own demons at bay.
When alcoholic ex-boxer Danny Boy Lorca witnesses a man tortured to death in the desert and reports it, Hack’s investigation leads to the home of Anton Ling, a regal, mysterious Chinese woman whom the locals refer to as La Magdalena and who is known for sheltering illegals. Ling denies having seen the victim or the perpetrators, but there is something in her steely demeanor and aristocratic beauty that compels Hackberry to return to her home again and again as the investigation unfolds. Could it be that the sheriff is so taken in by this creature who reminds him of his deceased wife that he would ignore the possibility that she is just as dangerous as the men she harbors?

The danger in the desert increases tenfold with the return of serial murderer Preacher Jack Collins, whom The New York Times called “one of Burke’s most inspired villains.” Presumed dead at the close of Rain Gods, Preacher Jack has reemerged with a calm, single-minded zeal for killing that is more terrifying than the muzzle flash of his signature machine gun.
Praised by Joyce Carol Oates for “the luminosity of his writerly voice,” James Lee Burke returns with his most allegorical novel to date, illuminating vital issues of our time—immigration, energy, religious freedom—with the rich atmosphere and devastatingly flawed, authentic characters that readers have come to celebrate during the five decades of his brilliant career.

(For those times when work doesn't provide all the mystery and excitement you desire)

Dotmine - Right on Time!

The bad news - I'm still a "paper" gal. Yes, I know, we're living in a paperless, virtual society. Who uses a paper planner these days? I do.

Worse news - I just got my 2011 Planner last week.

Better News - I will get my 2012 Planner before the end of this year!

The only problem is which one to pick. Because right after I purchased the "same old" planner that I've bought for the last decade, I discovered this amazing website with planners that fit everyone's needs. Specific needs. And with a name like, "Dotmine," well, I've got to have mine!!

Check out the cool planners, calendars and more at:

Julep - Mani-Care and Pedi-Care Treatments

When Mark Twain quipped, "The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco," he didn't lie.

This summer has been particularly cold. And rough on my hands. Julep(TM) Mani-Care and Pedi-Care Treatments will change your life. Well, at least your hands and your feet.

The cuticle oil is a must for folks like us who handle a lot of paper (and it's for guys too - not just girls). And you can "grow your own" with the Julep(TM) Nail Growth Revitalizing Serum.

And, last but certainly not least, check out the Julep(TM) Everyday SPF Hand Cream SPF 30 - because a girl's hands shall not reveal her age.

There's more. To see the full line of Julep(TM) products (including pedi-care), visit their website at:
