I love my office. Lots of space, lots of free parking, single building, ramps and baths for handicapped, big conference room and full kitchen, networked computers in all rooms, new integrated telephones, law books everywhere, beautiful historical 1800's saved front for a waiting area for meeting clients, flower and vegetable gardens, vineyard with grapes for making my wine, Verano's Legal Winery, and an orchard, apples, peaches, pears, what's there not to like?
Oh! My god! A picture equal to thousands of words!

GM has continuously issued several recalls for their vehicles. Many of these concern serious safety issues, and GM has stated that they agree to pay victims of any injury or death resulting from these defects. These defects range from ignition switch failure during operation, causing the engine to shut off, to electrical shorts, which cause the failure of power locks and doors as well as vehicle fires. http://www.usatoday.com/…/gm-recall-stock-trading…/11785801/

Our thoughts are with the cyclist, his friends and family.

Do you have chronic back pain? A relatively new treatment, called the AccuraScope procedure, was featured on The Doctors this morning.
