Yes to some extent.For notaries it's one of three things: 1) Witnesses to wills...
If you read the news paper like I do no doubt you have noticed that the amount of space that the want ads take up is now a fraction of what they were. I myself no longer use them because the news paper charges as though they were still king and have ignored that most people look on line now at th...
Notaries do not notarize documents, we notarize signatures on documents. While this may sound like "splitting hairs" the truth is the document is 100% irrelevant to the notarization.

In December I wrote a post called  And If This Happened To You????  At that time I was not very happy with a member of the police force that showed me just as much care as the person who ripped me off. Before I go on though I will say that after a call to the Chief everything got straightened out...
Yesterday (Saturday) I posted about a great lunch I had that included Red Hot Jello for dessert. I received a request for the recipe for it so I had the chef herself write it out for us. I even have visuals of the actual products she used to make it.                    Sorry about the spelling bu...
