Dog bite injury and pressing charges

There is nothing you could do to get me to leave rural MI. The golden hues on the tree leaves each Autumn paint a great backdrop to the landscape that stretches in every location. I love going to the lake and having a swim or casting out a line to catch a fish or a trout. Although our kids are still too young to swim in the lake, all of us still take them out near the water and let them wade in the water with life floating devices on. Although the winters are brutal and harsh, there is a gentler side of MI that is revealed when life starts again anew each year following the Springtime thaw. Since all of us live so far out of the city, we’re lucky to be left alone from all of our closest neighbors. All of us have a sense of peace and quiet that few ever experience in life, regardless of whatever country or village they live in. Even with all of these ideals, I still had to take my daughter to the emergency room last week after getting bitten by the neighbor’s dog. All of us were all out in the front yard just an hour before sunset 1 evening when I heard barking and the sound of a dog running at breakneck speed in our direction. The animal lunged for my daughter and I had to injure it with a rake to save my daughter’s life. My partner caught the entire event on film, but the neighbor still insists she can press charges for her dogs minor injuries. Even after showing her my daughter’s injuries and indicating that all of us had it on video, she wouldn’t give up.

PTSD from police misconduct

I have a mild case of PTSD from an experience I had last year when I was pulled over for a busted tail light.

  • It was the middle of the evening and I was just trying to get back home after a long shift cleaning tables at a steakhouse on the other side of town.

I was following all traffic laws but didn’t realize 1 of my tail lights was out. When the red and white lights started flashing in our rear view mirror, I immediately hit our brake pedal and started pulling onto the bend. But when I went to hand the cop my license and automobile registration, she ordered me out of my car and told me to lay on the ground. As I was laying on the asphalt at gunpoint by the first officer, the second got out of the cruiser and started rifling through my car. They accused me of trafficking drugs while I cried and pleaded with them that I wasn’t who they thought. I had no drugs or booze on me; in fact, the entire incident was a result of mistaken identity because of them racial profiling. When they realized they had the wrong guy, they acted as if nothing had happened and left the scene while I was still on the ground crying. I looked all over Detroit to find an attorney who would take our case against the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office regarding this horrible issue of police misconduct. I still think about the case on a weekly basis. I get fearful when I’m in my own car at night and wonder if I’ll get pulled over again for something small and then get pushed to the ground and a gun held to my head.

With a little money, you can have your own unique contemporary condo

We’ll get through this together) so please don’t do that! One coffee table is plenty, trust me

Hello fellow millennials! How’s apartment life going for everybody? (I’m actually laughing because I believe it’s true). I also happen to be living in an apartment. I have no crucial plans to transfer out either. Who needs property ownership anyway, right? Right? Help me…Anyway, since you’re residing in an apartment you certainly have limited room to entirely express yourself. That’s why I’m here! I hope to be able to help you turn that drab apartment into a contemporary condo. How? With custom furniture. Don’t leave this article! Stay here. Stay! I probably almost lost you when I said custom furniture. Listen, it’s not that fancy to go for custom furniture. A few larger pieces can totally make that contemporary condo shine. Here’s a few of the custom pieces I recommend. Number one would definitely be wooden tables and wooden chairs. Don’t invest in plastic, self-assembled crap. You’re an adult! Never forget that. You decorate your apartment with cherry furniture or oak furniture. You also use plastics too. Custom furniture doesn’t have to mean expensive leather furniture. Use some of that money for custom plastic furniture or clear custom furniture. It makes the living space airier and allows you to maintain your stylistic integrity. I also would have to advise a custom couch. Don’t hesitate to splurge on that sofa! Make sure that piece of furniture is custom furniture. Most of your guests will be using that custom couch so it honestly should be nice. The other thing I will tell you is make sure you are sparsely utilizing old school coffee tables. I certainly understand that in your home in the 90’s that Mom enjoyed using those coffee tables with knick knacks on them. But we’re not in the 90’s (I know, I know. We’ll get through this together) so please don’t do that! One coffee table is plenty, trust me. I hope this helped you. And I hope it wasn’t so long that you scrolled past, and I appreciate you reading my article!

Using a chiller to dehumidify the building

We recently implemented a chiller to help dehumidify the air in the downtown library.

The smell of mold and mildew lingers in the air and everyone was worried about the library resources. Too much humidity can damage textbooks, manuscripts, microfiche, and other periodicals. Too much humidity can affect the priceless pieces of artwork that hang in the lobby of the county library. The building is old and in bad need of renovations. The library has been in that building for more than 100 years and it shows. After talking with a local HVAC company, we decided to employ a chiller to dehumidify the building. The HVAC company installed the industrial chiller a few months ago. It took three days to install the industrial chiller, but it works very well. The chiller uses evaporation and refrigerant to cool the air. Every time air circulates through the chiller, evaporation helps moisture levels drop. This lowers the level of humidity inside the air. All of the new HVAC equipment was terribly expensive, so we are going to hold a fundraiser at the end of next month. We have raffles and silent auctions scheduled. One local resident is going to win a meet and greet with the mayor. Another resident will win dinner for a year from Hungry Harry’s. The library is going to be open all day and we will have several famous authors to sign books for adults and kids. We are hoping for a large turnout from the community. We will also have food trucks in the parking lot and a clown to make balloon animals.

Construction and remodeling when we can’t do it ourselves

There are so many home remodeling shows now.

Everyone wants to be either Chip or Joanna.

I will admit, I fell into the trap. When I bought my house it was a clear fixer upper. I watched enough shows to know what works and what doesn’t. So what if I had never swung a hammer before? Who cares that I didn’t own tools? I was sure it wouldn’t be that hard. I bought myself some tools and made grand plans. I wanted to take down walls, change flooring and totally remodel my kitchen. I also had grand plans on adding an outdoor deck to my house. No one in my family is handy and I don’t have a husband. It was a project just for me alone. Well I lasted about two weeks before I finally threw in the towel. I realized my skills are limited to scrapping wallpaper, painting walls and picking out new hand towels. I can’t actually tear down or build anything. Thankfully for non talented women like myself, you can hire a building and construction company to do everything. I talked to the general contractor and begged him to make my ideas reality. Turns out I wanted to take out a load bearing wall so that was a no no. Thank goodness I didn’t try though. I also then was told certain parts of the house had brand new hardwood floors. The construction guy was really firm that removing the new floors would be dumb. The two of us were able to settle on updating the kitchen, adding the deck and adding new tile to my bathroom. The cost of the remodeling and construction company to do the work wasn’t that bad!

I hate when people argue with me about HVAC units

I really hate it when people argue with me about HVAC units.

There are some people that are constantly arguing with me about how much they know about HVAC units.

First of all, you should learn a little about me. I have been an HVAC technician for 40 years. In just a couple of years, I am going to be retiring as an HVAC technician. I have more experience with HVAC units than most people in our state, and I have seen as many HVAC related problems as you can even think of. Since I was the service HVAC technician, I was the person that was constantly traveling from house to house fixing HVAC units for people. However, whenever I meet somebody who likes to think that they can fix everything in the world, they always think that they know more about HVAC units than me. First of all, let me tell you that I do not think that you have to be an HVAC technician to know how to fix an HVAC unit. I don’t think that anyone who knows anything about HVAC units is an HVAC technician. However, if the only HVAC unit that you have fixed is your own, and if you have only started fixing HVAC units a few years ago, you probably do not know more about HVAC units than the average HVAC technician, and you definitely do not know more about HVAC units than I do. People are always trying to argue or fix the problem while I am hired to fix their HVAC unit. They always want to act like they know the secrets. If you know an HVAC technician, treat him like the professional that he is. Don’t try to undermine his knowledge with your petty experience in the HVAC field.
