By David Peel It is not all that unusual in some of my larger cases to have language about confidentiality proposed to be included within the settlement agreement.

SOUTHERN RAISIN’ Sometimes Different Things Wake You Up to Make You Grow Up

SOUTHERN RAISIN’ Witches, Haints, Fortune Tellers, and Ghosts

Avoid “Flood Cars”

By David Peel Following major hurricanes like Harvey and Irma, many flooded cars are totaled by insurance companies and auctioned to salvage. But look out, some of them will soon be for sale nearby.

Greased And Hard To Snatch

By Otis Griffin It was always a big event to go to the Mid-South Fair every fall.  You’d get to tour the midway, see all the livestock shows, get scared on the rides, and sample the highly seasoned food.  Then try to win some prizes at the ‘rigged’ games, until you ran out of money, […]

Getting “Published”

By David Peel Seeing a book I wrote in print has been a very strange feeling this week. It’s a bit surreal to see something you created now listed for sale on Amazon.com.
