I am on the last week of my vacation and today, I am staying with a friend. It’s a good thing that she works online too so we get to chat and update each other while eating while working. We get to exchange stories since it’s been about five months since we’ve last seen each other. She tells me about a really nice software that lets my computer be a modem. Also, I shared with her an apidextra review that I saw because she is contemplating on taking the pill. Last night, we’ve slept really, really late because both of us took coffee and there are so many stories to share. Too bad I will be leaving her today to meet another friend and some relatives. But we hope to meet again once I visit the city.

The Litigators by John Grisham

Saturday, May 12, 2012

The Litigators by John GrishamApart from Jodi Picoult, I have not read another author who writes about legal fiction. Her stories became too heavy for me so I eventually stopped reading her books though hands down, she writes impressively.

Then I stumbled upon John Grisham per a friend’s recommendation. So prior to our trip last week, along with some new blouses, a bottle of armani perfume and a pink belt, I also bought his new book, The Litigators. It’s been a while since I last finished a novel and as my first John Grisham book, I can say that I am quite happy with the read. It is not a heavy read and hard-to-put-down kind of book but I like how John created his characters, even how he named them. The story is very easy to follow with some delightful twists.

Now I know why my friend loves John Grisham and I can’t wait to hit the book stores again to find his other books. By the way, here is the prologue of John Grisham’s The Litigators:

The partners at Finley & Figg—all two of them—often refer to themselves as “a boutique law firm.” Boutique, as in chic, selective, and prosperous. They are, of course, none of these things. What they are is a two-bit operation always in search of their big break, ambulance chasers who’ve been in the trenches much too long making way too little. Their specialties, so to speak, are quickie divorces and DUIs, with the occasional jackpot of an actual car wreck thrown in. After twenty plus years together, Oscar Finley and Wally Figg bicker like an old married couple but somehow continue to scratch out a half-decent living from their seedy bungalow offices in southwest Chicago.

And then change comes their way. More accurately, it stumbles in. David Zinc, a young but already burned-out attorney, walks away from his fast-track career at a fancy downtown firm, goes on a serious bender, and finds himself literally at the doorstep of our boutique firm. Once David sobers up and comes to grips with the fact that he’s suddenly unemployed, any job—even one with Finley & Figg—looks okay to him.

With their new associate on board, F&F is ready to tackle a really big case, a case that could make the partners rich without requiring them to actually practice much law. An extremely popular drug, Krayoxx, the number one cholesterol reducer for the dangerously overweight, produced by Varrick Labs, a giant pharmaceutical company with annual sales of $25 billion, has recently come under fire after several patients taking it have suffered heart attacks. Wally smells money.

A little online research confirms Wally’s suspicions—a huge plaintiffs’ firm in Florida is putting together a class action suit against Varrick. All Finley & Figg has to do is find a handful of people who have had heart attacks while taking Krayoxx, convince them to become clients, join the class action, and ride along to fame and fortune. With any luck, they won’t even have to enter a courtroom!

It almost seems too good to be true.

And it is.

If you are looking for a good read, then The Litigators is the book for you. I highly recommend it!


Safety Tips When Buying Baby Beddings

Thursday, May 3, 2012

baby boys bedding In order to complete the look of a crib or nursery, one must carefully choose a baby bedding. There are lots of designs, colors and patters available both for baby girls and baby boys bedding to match the taste and preferred themes of the expecting parents.

However, aside from its appearance the safety of the bedding must also be considered. Here are some safety tips when shopping for baby beddings:

  • Instead of buying a bundled bedding, go for single items. Handpick each item in order to be assured that each does not have items or materials which do not pose as hazardous to your baby when used.
  • Finding fitted sheets that goes with your baby’s room’s theme is a good idea. However,what’s more important is to look for fitted sheets that fit very snugly against the mattress. Loose and poor fitting sheets will have the tendency to come off and might suffocate the baby.
  • When looking for a crib bumper, choose one that securely fastens to the crib. You can also go for a mesh bumper which prevents a baby’s arms and legs being stuck between the crib’s slats.
  • Consider buying sheet protectors. These made of thin cotton cloths with waterproof backing – perfect for keeping the sheets dry. These are economical and easy to change compared to changing an entire set in case of diaper leaks.
  • When it comes to blankets, make sure that you have good and lightweight blankets to swaddle you infant at night. You can keep it in place by putting it over your baby’s lower half and tucking it into the side of the crib’s mattress.

Remember, cuteness and appeal matter when buying baby beddings. But safety of the baby must come first. Bear this in mind when you are looking for the best baby beddings for your new bundle of joy.
