Middle-aged white-collar professional who is about to undergo a major career change. Got tired of doing the same old things everyday so I'm headed back to school to become a paralegal.

A Forgettable Day Out On The Links

My Most Interesting Worker's Comp Claims

At the request of Kim G. I wish to relate a couple of my more interesting claims that I have handled in my 25 years as a licensed worker's compensation adjuster in Texas.  As a rule, and as I mentioned in my first blog, worker's comp is not the most exciting field… Read full post »

First Blog: What To Write About?

Well, here goes! I have always enjoyed writing, but finding a topic to write about has always been the hardest part for me. Once I find one I can usually just let it flow. Since this is my first entry I thought that I'd write about a subject with which I am very familiar. Me!… Read full post »
