    The Signs of Theft. Attorneys use door buzzers

    and Armed Guards in their lobbies not to protect you but to protect themselves AGAINST you. Once they lie, cheat and steal FROM YOU, they need protection from you. Never use an attorney who needs protection from his/her own clients.

    I Am Proud Of My Heart

    I'm proud of my heart.  It's been played, stabbed, cheated, burned and broken,  but somehow it still works. There is nothing more beautiful than a person whose heart has been torn apart, but still believes in the beauty of love.
