Make love outdoors in Nature (read all 5 entries…)
BEAUTIFULL

NOT quite outside in nature,

BUT

We rented a flat for the weekend on the seafront, and made love all night in front of an open window facing the ocean.

Did I say BEAUTIFULL??

Trying something new...

I’ve become a “weekday vegan”.

I allow myself an egg white once a month (breakfast with my wife), a piece of chicken and a piece of fish each weekend.

and no more.

Inspiration: Ornish.

celebrate shoemakers 46th birthday (june 5th) by posting lawyer jokes here
My favorite ruling ever:

Wiiliam Fisher
vs
Karen LOWE, Larry Moffet and State Farm Insurance
Docket No. 60732
Court of Appeals of Michigan.
Decided Jan. 10, 1983.
Syllabus
A wayward Chevy struck a tree
Whose owner sued defendants three.
He sued car’s owner, driver two,
And insurer for what was due
For his oak tree that now may bear
A lasting need for tender care.
The Oakland County Circuit Court,
John N. O’Brien, J., set forth
The judgment that defendants sought
And quickly an appeal was brought.
Court of Appeals, J.H. Gillis, J.,
Gave thought and then had this to say:
1) There is no liability
Since No-Fault grants immunity;
2) No jurisdiction can be found
Where process service is unsound;
And thus the judgment, as it’s termed,
Is due to be, and is, Affirmed.

Opinion
Before BRONSON, P.J., and V.J. BRENNAN and J.H. GILLIS, JJ.
J.H. GILLIS, Judge.
We thought that we would never see
A suit to compensate a tree.
A suit whose claim in tort is prest
Upon a mangled tree’s behest;
A tree whose battered trunk was prest
Against a Chevy’s crumpled crest;
A tree that faces each new day
With bark and limb in disarray;
A tree that may forever bear
A lasting need for tender care.
Flora lovers though we three,
We must uphold the court’s decree.
.... Affirmed.

go out on "date nights" with my spouse on a regular basis (read all 8 entries…)
Going great,

Not “nights” but rather mornings.

Once a month, breakfast before work at a coffee shop.

Once a month, less than 2 hours – and WHAT A DIFFERENCE IT MAKES!!

HIGHLY recomended!!!

The one hand and the other hand

ON THE ONE HAND – I’m handling the projects well, and getting lots of compliments.

ON THE OTHER HAND – Inwardly I’m eating myself alive and just plain freaking out!!!
