Memorial Day

So here we are at the end of May already.  How time flies!!

I haven't had chance to break out my bike yet, but I've been getting plenty of walks in with the surprisingly good weather we've been having recently. 

One of my favorite local walks is around the cemetery just up the road from my house.  There's something very relaxing about walking along the paths between the trees, grass and old gravestones away from the traffic.  Me and my husband often chuckle over some of the names on the gravestones: SPACE SAMS is one of our favorites - who was the unfortunate astronaut Sam, and what did he do to deserve being spaced for it?  Or how about SLATTERY - a curious mix of slander and flattery, perhaps?  Not to mention the number of names that sound like they belong on big law firm letterheads.

But this weekend in particular, among the old forgotten gravestones and odd names, were many, many Stars and Stripes planted by proud, sad and thankful families. 

In between the barbecues, dips in the backyard pool and mall sales, let's not forget the real reason for Memorial Day.

To all who serve: Thank you.

eDiscovery on a Shoestring

On Wednesday, June 2nd, I'll be doing a free lunchtime seminar looking at low-cost eDiscovery.  Topics to be covered include low cost tools to help you manage your eDiscovery, and when it's worth bringing in a vendor.  Lunch will be provided.

The seminar will be held at the Ellicott Square Building at 205 Main St., Buffalo, NY in the Bearrs Stearn conference room.  Please contact me for more information, or RSVP here if you're on Facebook, or here if you're on LinkedIn.  RSVP's are due by Monday, May 31st.

See you then!
