When Family Work Together

EXPECT THE BEST BUT PLAN FOR THE WORST

There was a phone message on the hot line last week that was unfortunate, but not unusual.  A solo practitioner in a small PA town died suddenly of a heart attack.  She was only 49 years old.  She had no known history of illness.  READ MORE

Review of Changes in Latest Apple iOS

One of my favorite blogs is iPhone J.D.  It’s the place to turn to for all things Apple, related to the use of the iPhone and iPad by lawyers.  Their recent blog post, “Apple Releases iOS 6.1” covers every change in the update, with clear screen shots and explanations.  It’s everything you want to know, and more, clearly written.

Heading to Lebanon County, PA

On Friday, May 11, 2012, I’ll be presenting two seminars for the members of the Lebanon County Bar Association.  I’m really looking forward to presenting their first live CLE, as well as doing it in such an historical venue.  From 11:00 am to noon I’ll be presenting “Records Management” and from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm I’ll be presenting “Disaster Prevention and Recovery”.  Both are fast-paced and enjoyable seminars which qualify for 1.0 ethics credit each.

Right now registration numbers are moderate, so I’m hoping that if you’ve wanted to hear one of these seminars before but couldn’t make it when I appeared in your county, you’ll take advantage of close proximity and head over to Lebanon County.

The location is the award-winning historic Inn 422, which is a victorian-era-estate bed and breakfast.  The inn-keepers have recorded the history on the Inn’s web site, and it is fascinating.  Here’s a hint:  it involves one of the wealthiest families in colonial-era America, a past president, forbidden love, and a suicide.  Intrigued?  I am too, but I hope not to have any encounters with the alleged ghost.

The pictures of the Inn indicate I’m in for a real feast for the eyes. 

Hope to see you there!

Google Privacy Countdown

My partner, Jennifer Ellis, has just posted instructions on her blog about how to get rid of your Google web search and YouTube histories before the March 1, 2012 account consolidation deadline.  You can read about it here.

As Jennifer explains, Google announced that it would be combining all of the data from various accounts into one place for purposes of making its privacy policy easier. She finds the prospect of Google  putting all of the data from various accounts into one place  a bit scary, and notes that, not too surprisingly, a lot of people want to delete the data before Google puts it into once place.  Jennifer explains what you can and cannot delete, and provides illustrated step-by-step instructions.
