How to Find the Right Attorney in Georgia for Your Injury Case

Choosing the right attorney for your particular personal injury case is never easy. Legal dramas and movies taught us – wrongly – that the best attorney in town could try everything from car accident insurance claims to criminal defense and from antitrust trials to wills and divorce. It is not the case.

I love Spider-Man – but would my son? How I learned a hard lesson about heroes

He’s my all-time favourite comic character. But do the real heroes still wear spandex?A decade ago I got married in a wedding outfit that, because of the shambles of assembling it, I can remember thread for thread. I had a new suit (dark grey, secret pockets) that I was shyly proud of; but with a couple of hours to go, I hung it in the wrong place in a public bathroom and the jacket was sprayed at close range by an auto-dispersing air freshener, the rich and tangy scent of which I could never sc...

It was somewhere about the middling to end of July that our 4 fowl ladies, Daisy and Sadie, Haddie and Lady, they took up nesting like it was nobody’s business, and our rooster, Strut, well, he took to what he does best, strutting around the coop as cocky as well, yeah, you guessed it — a rooster.   ...
