BLOG - I can't believe the time some people have

thumbsdown.jpgI don't know why it is that a few bad seeds always have to ruin it for the rest.

I understand fully that anytime you hook up to the Internet, you are a sitting duck just waiting to be invaded -- whether by spyware, malware, spam ... some jerk has finally found my site and my "contact me" page. I tried to make it as easy as possible for truly interested people to contact me. Unfortunately, and I'm surprised it took so long, some idiot has found my "contact me" form and are sending me spam contact information on a daily basis, just putting gibberish in the different fields. What an idiot.

It must be a sad life where you get off by wasting people's time and have nothing better to do with your own time or life. I've  given you a blog entry where you can sit back and gloat anonymously. Now move on because I've set your responses up so they no longer even come to me and will be directed no where in cyber land.

BLOG - Colorado wins GOLD in the 2012 Olympics

Female swimmer in pool doing butterflyI'm pretty psyched with Coloradoans in the 2012 Olympics. Missy Franklin has won FOUR GOLD medals, ONE BRONZE and she has brokentwo world records and she is only 17 years old. Taylor Ritzel won GOLD in rowing -- considering we don't have large bodies of water, rowing is not something we do in Colorado, it was really exciting to watch her win.

Imagine my reaction when I received the following on another forum after posting that Missy broke a world's record:

"Colorado didn't win gold - only bragging rights as this is her home state. The state had nothing to do with Missy Franklin's accomplishments and sacrifices. Since she holds dual citizenship, should Canada also say they had something to do with her results? This is personal, individual accomplishments....she built it all on her own with her family's assist."

I mean, holly $hit ... I have absolutely no idea what brought this confrontational response from a simple statement about winning gold and breaking a world's record. Additionally, what difference does it matter how many citizenship's she holds? Whose business is it anyways? If Colorado didn't win gold, the newscasters and the Olympics officials need to be advised that the USA and every other country hasn't won gold, bronze, silver ... that's what is wrong with people having too much time on their hands and not enough to keep themselves out of trouble, because I hate it when they feel compelled to butt into my business.

I, for one, am proud of my wonderful state and to Missy and Taylor for their wonderful talent and love for what they are so good at.

As for Ms. Busybody, I could say I feel sorry for you because of your sad life, but I want nothing to do with you. I would appreciate you staying out of my business.

With a typing speed of 120 wpm, Carolyn Bodley began offering independent contractor/secretarial and transcription services to the Denver metro legal community in 1992.

I am not a court reporter or medical transcriptionist and I don't videotape depositions -- I'm strictly a legal transcriptionist which means putting spoken words on paper. All my transcripts contain a certification stating that to the best of my knowledge, belief and ability, the audio/video I received has not been altered in any way, and the transcript is true, accurate and complete. I have never been advised that a court rejected one of my audio or video transcripts. If my transcript is rejected by the court, you will be reimbursed in full for my services. Because I certify that the transcript is true and complete, the entire audio/video must be transcribed--I am unable to transcribe "just a portion" that you need. 

I guarantee that your transcripts will be typed confidentially, accurately and with attention to detail at a fair price.

  • Discovery is often turned over in a format other than hard copy. This discovery includes, but is not limited to, recorded telephone conversations, police interviews, depositions, investigations, witness statements, and more. The audio and video "words" need to be put to paper, and your already overworked legal staff often don't have the skills, equipment, the inclination or the time.
  • Discovery is often the deciding factor of whether a case goes to trial. Most of us hear, but do we listen? Recently I transcribed a video that had been viewed and listened to several times and by several people before I transcribed it. There was a one sentence statement that not one person caught -- this one sentence was not the only reason the case was dismissed one day before trial--however, it carried quite a bit of weight -- and I'm the only one that "heard" it. Had the video never been transcribed, how many other words would never have been heard?
