How many personal injury attorneys does it take to change a light bulb? How many can you afford? Three - one to turn the bulb, one to shake him off the ladder, and the third to sue the ladder company.
What's the difference between a good lawyer and a great lawyer? A good lawyer knows the law. A great lawyer knows the judge.
What's the difference between an attorney and a pit bull? Jewelry.
How does an attorney sleep? First he lies on one side, and then on the other. How do you get a group of personal injury lawyers to smile for a picture? Just say "Fees!" "You seem to be in some distress," said the kindly judge to the witness. "Is anything the matter?" "Well, your Honor," said the witness, "I swore to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, but every time I try, some lawyer objects." A new client had just come in to see a famous lawyer. "Can you tell me how much you charge?", said the client. "Of course", the lawyer replied, "I charge $200 to answer three questions!" "Well that's a bit steep, isn't it?" "Yes, it is", said the lawyer, "And what's your third question?"

My sweetheart and I went to see the Seattle Opera production of La Boheme last Sunday. Here are some of the reviews -
Not-To-Be-Missed!"-Bernard Jacobson, The Seattle Times
As Seattle Opera's "wildly romantic" (City Arts) production of La Bohèmeheads into its final week, praise from critics and audiences continues:
"To Die For - Seattle Opera's production feels like coming home. Even if you've never seen Bohème before, you'll feel warm, welcome, and aware of life's fragile beauty afterward." -The SunBreak
"An ideal gateway opera for the uninitiated. A familiar, wildly romantic story centerered on the thrill of living. .. The production seizes the spirt of this story with intoxicating grandeur." -CityArts
"By far the best Bohème I've seen, it was perfect." -Katie Castro, via Facebook
"A perfect La Bohème! Singing, orchestra, conducting, lighting, staging, all these elements in balance, you had it all." -Tim Hendrickson, via Facebook
"La Bohème was stunning. If you like Rent see the opera that inspired it" -MissAngela, via Twitter
I have not seen Rent and I didn't know the "La Boheme" connection. I guess Cher and Nicolas Cage's characters went to see "La Boheme" in the movie "Moonstruck" which is one of my favorite films. I'll have to watch "Moonstruck" again now(I have it on DVD).
I feel very lucky that we went to see 2 operas this year - "La Boheme" and "Cinderella." Both were very special and meant a lot to me.
