Fun with lawyer ethics
May a professional card of a lawyer be blue on blue, and may it
incorporate on its face an emblem such as the scales of justice?
It is improper for the professional card or letterhead of a lawyer to
contain a distinctive monogram. N.Y. County 591 (1971); Wise, Legal
Ethics 145 (2d ed. 1970); DR 2-102(A) (1) and (4).
A lawyer's use of letterheads, professional cards and announcement
cards should conform to normal, modest sized lettering giving the
conventional information only, such as the name of the individual or
firm, the address, the telephone, and the cable code, if any. Wise,
Legal Ethics 169 (2d ed. 1970).
To permit embellishment of the usual simple professional card would
undoubtedly lead to the use of competitive symbols and the dignity of
the profession would be seriously compromised. The use of blue lettering
on blue stock rather than being conventional, customary and usual is
flamboyant and not dignified.

(e:terry) and I decided to rent the office across the hall to have some separation between the law firm and the consulting firm. The furniture got delivered today. I discovered that the artist next door actually exists and his name is Jack. he's a retired tax accountant. If you want us to do your taxes this year, schedule soon :-)

I met with a new client today at their house on a steep mountainside. I parked my truck at their workshop and climbed a narrow trail to the house. They have a driveway but it's currently unusable with snow pack. the house faces east over the valley.
Looking back at the trail
Window seat in the office overlooking the valley.
Bonus: cutest mittens ever (thanks, Alex!!)

(e:Terry) tried to install the plant hangers but ran into trouble with it.
We got this fabulous whiteboard cabinet from Buffalo Business Interiors but it needs some special attention before it can be hung. I've been using it anyway, sitting on the floor making pictures & lists. It has corkboards on the insides of the doors and hooks for hanging big pads of paper. It's really my dream whiteboard.
