After yesterdays snowfall it feels like summer may be farther away then that little rodent is predicting.

I'm not sure about every State but in the State of North Dakota the Notary can not tell you what kind of a notarization you need for your document (even if he/she knows) because that would be "practicing" law without a license.  The two most common notarization's are Acknowledgments and Jurats. I...

Often people will come into my office and ask me to notarize a hand written note. It may be a bill of sale or something as simple as "if I should die I want my girlfriend to get my cowboy boots".This is the 1st tip in a series of Notarization. What is Notarial language? Why a Notary can not stamp...

Getting ready to spike it! I love playing volleyball so this is right up my alley. However I'm not sure what team would be excited to recruit a 64 year old man with a long list of health problems (plus I could stand to lose 10 pounds).I do not believe there are any restrictions on who can play so...

IMHO some people have gone way to far and for a medical professional (Dr.) to say that a turkey or a donkey is a ...
