Dr. John Patrick Keefe and the Case of the Missing Turkey

turkey Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Tonight’s tale is about our beloved private investigator, Dr. John Patrick Keefe II. Now, John finds himself quite perplexed by his client’s request this Thanksgiving season. You see, his neighbor, we’ll call her “Magda” has seemed to of misplaced her pet turkey, Bart. Bart the Turkey is a lovely, plump little bird with beautiful feathers and a great gobble. Every day, Bart comes out into the backyard from the barn to rustle up some fresh worms and bask in the morning sunlight. However, on the morning of November 22nd, 2015, Bart was no were to be found.

Magda, in a panic, did the only thing she thought to do and that was to call up her trusty neighbor who just happens to be a Pi, Dr. John Patrick Keefe. “John!” screeched Magda into the phone, “Someone has stolen, Bart!” John Keefe, the gentle soul that he is, calmed his elderly neighbor down and told her that he’d be right over.

Once Dr. Keefe entered Magda’s home he was met with the familiar scent of mothballs. Bart the Turkey probably ran away because he could no longer tolerate the stench. John spotted Magda sitting at her kitchen table with a cup of coffee. “Hi, Magda, what can I do for you today?” said John. “Oh, Dr. Keefe! I’m so frazzled! My beloved Bart has gone missing! I just don’t know what to do! Can you help me?”

Dr. John Keefe tugged at his chin for a brief moment and said, “Sure, Magda, but only if you’ll pay me in cookies.” Magda jumped out of her seat and hugged her beloved private investigator around the neck. “Oh, thank you, John Keefe!

So, after taking down some vital information about Bart the Turkey, John began his initial investigation. He located some of the bird’s feathers and followed them to a small opening in Magda’s backyard fence. “Uh oh,” thought John. Getting down on his knees, Dr. Keefe peered into the opening of the fence and what he saw was rather disturbing. It looked like there were turkey snacks laying on the ground!

“Someone has lured Bart the Turkey out of Magda’s yard!” exclaimed Dr. John Keefe. John spotted more turkey feathers by the curb and down the street. Following the trail of feathers, he was lead to the local butcher shop. “This does not look good,” said John to himself. As he approached the butcher shop he could hear all sorts of squawking and weird noises. In fact, those noises sounded just like Bart the Turkey!!!!
Dr. John Keefe II ran into the shop and through the plastic hanging door to see what was going on. Much to his horror, Bart the Turkey was just about ready to get his head chopped off! “What the frick do you think you’re doing you ugly old bastard!?!,” said John to the butcher. The butcher got scared and dropped Bart while fleeing.

John picked up Bart the Turkey and promptly returned him to Magda who was waiting with a big old batch of home baked cookies for him.

The Importance of Hiring a Private Investigator Like Dr. John Patrick Keefe II When Seeking Out a Child Care Provider

The Importance of Hiring a Private Investigator Like Dr. John Patrick Keefe II When Seeking Out a Child Care ProviderThere is nothing more precious than your children. In today’s society, more and more families have to have both parents working to make ends meet. This means that the children of the household require childcare services. If you do not have a close friend or family member to help you out with this duty, you will need to seek services from someone you do not know very well, such as a daycare center or a private nanny. How do you know that these people are good people who care about children?
You do not.

This is why you need to hire a private investigator like Dr. John Keefe. When inviting people into your home to care for your babies, they need to be trustworthy with a clean background. This also holds true when sending your children to a daycare center or someone else’s home. I cannot stress enough how important a thorough background check on a potential babysitter is, especially when you have infants and toddlers as these children cannot talk and tell you what is happening during the day while you are gone.
Here are some provider must-haves:

  • Must have at least ten years’ experience and be knowledgeable regarding child development;
  • Be gentle, respectful and responsive to the child and the parent;
  • Have the ability to recognize all needs of the children as a group and as individuals;
  • Know that discipline is important but under no circumstances should the children be touched violently or verbally abused;
  • Respect the family’s child-rearing philosophy but also be ready to relate to the parents any problems the youngster is having;
  • Understand that self-esteem is the most important thing the child can learn;
  • Keep all family information confidential;
  • Alert the parents to a child’s unresponsive or disobedient behavior.

The key is to start looking for a childcare provider early. You want to give your private investigator enough time to perform a thorough check on your potential before it is time to allow them to care for your little ones.

You should always interview multiple potentials. Don’t just settle on the first person who gives you an impressive story about their experience and love for children. Many times, people will lie about these things simply because they need a job. You want someone who cares about the well-being of your child or children.

Always go with your gut instincts. You and your private investigator should BOTH feel confident about a potential babysitter before you hire them. John Patrick Keefe II is not only a private investigator but also a father to many World’s Best Daughters and Sons. He knows what to look for regarding people being genuine.

Utilizing a private investigator will cost you some cash, no doubt. However, the safety and health of your children are priceless. Having a Pi help you find an upstanding babysitter will be well worth the money in the long run.

Dr. John Patrick Keefe II Talks About What You Can and Cannot Do as a Notary Public

Oklahoma City Public Notary

Oklahoma City Public NotaryBeing a notary public is, for the most part, a pretty cut and dry job. However, there are a few rules that John Keefe, a notary public in Oklahoma City, would like you to know about. You should also brush up on your knowledge of Notary Public Law if you have not already. Below, you will find some instances in which your authority to notarize is limited or even prohibited.

  • Certifying copies of official documents – Did you know that state and federal laws prohibit notaries from certifying copies of birth, death, and naturalization certificates and copyrighted material? You do not want to be part of something illegal!
  • Never notarize blank documents, documents with blank spaces, and documents without notarial word – You never want to notarize documents such as these because blank spaces can be filled in fraudulently at another time. You will want to insist that your client draws lines through the blank spaces before you notarize the document. If there is no notarial wording on a document, you cannot stamp your seal or signature on said document. Also, forget pre-notarizing a document for your client to fill in at a later date because that is illegal.
  • Notarizing by proxy is frowned upon – So, you have something to do later in the day and cannot meet with some clients to notarize their paperwork. Your brother, Larry gladly chimes in and says he will sign your name to the documents and act as your proxy. Sounds like a good idea, right? Wrong! Your notarial commission is non-transferable, and you cannot, under any circumstances, delegate someone else to sign your name, use your rubber stamp, or make entries in your notarial register.
  • Never give out legal advice – Seriously, this is a no-brainer. Unless, you are a licensed attorney who has privileges to practice in the state in which you are performing notarial services, you need to keep your mouth shut regarding legal counsel. This includes telling your clients what to say on affidavits, describing, interpreting, or explaining to the clients the content or legal implications of a document or choosing which notarial form to use.
  • Do not advertise as a Notario Publico – You might wish to appeal to the Latin-American community, but in Spanish, this terms means “attorney” and you are not an attorney.
  • Notarizing for friends, relatives, and employers — As long as you, the notary, have no direct personal or monetary interest in a transaction, you can perform notarial services for family members, relatives and employers. For example, you can notarize your brother’s signature on the title of his car, as long as you are not involved in buying or selling the car.
  • Performing marriages – In some states, like Pennsylvania, Notaries are not allowed to issue marriage licenses or perform marital ceremonies. This would not apply to someone like John Patrick Keefe, as he is also a wedding officiant in OKC.
