Sentiment and Sentimental

"The difference between sentiment and being sentimental is the following: Sentiment is when a driver swerves out of the way to avoid hitting a rabbit on the road. Being sentimental is when the same driver, when swerving away from the rabbit, hits a pedestrian."
-Frank Herbert-

Book Fair

The school had a book fair last week but I did not go because Ms. Burrito did not want any of the books that was in the catalogue she brought home. We asked her a couple of time if she realy doesn't want to buy books.  She is more interested with  science books and other  books that has a lot of information rather than books  with short stories.
But anyhow, when she came home she had something in her book bag and I found this note from her teacher. It was very nice of the teacher to  buy something for the  kids who did not have money to buy books.  Thank you Mrs. Gain!  I asked Ms. Burrito why her teacher said that she's upset and she said that her tummy was hurting and  her teacher thought that  Ms. Burrito was crying because she's going to get in trouble.
She got a  Sketch and Design book from her teacher.  From the bottom of our hearts, thank you~!

Life is...

Life is the fire that burns and the sun that gives light. Life is the wind and the rain and the thunder in the sky. Life is matter and is earth, what is and what is not, and what beyond is in Eternity.

Bigger than His Shadow

"A person shows himself for an instant as in a photograph 
but clearer and in the background something which is bigger than his shadow."
Tomas Transtromer
The  male action figure is Thor,  it was given by my  niece-in-law to Mr. Burrito  as birthday gift. The Japanese figurine was  bought by my husband when he was in Japan.  He asked me what I wanted from the country and I told him that I don't want anything but I made a joke  fr him not to get a woman.  To respond to my joke, he bought the musical  Japanese doll.

Beta Gamma Sigma

My husband,  was one of the 8 inductees of the 3rd Recognition of high scholastic achievements for the Beta Gamma Sigma, Robert Morris University chapter.  We were suppose to go with him during that day but I wasn't feeling well so we just stayed home.
He received this tassel, a pin, a certificate, and other  stuff.  He would be  using this tassel during his graduation to show that he is a  bonafide member of BGS.

Bridges

Ohio River used to have four bridges that connects Steubenville, Ohio to Weirton and Follansbee, West Virginia.  This is the Fort Steuben Bridge that was recently demolished. You can watch the video below how the demolition was done, it is pretty neat.  Thanks to Ohio Transportation for uploading the video.

A quick snap that my wife took after the demolition.
Below is the Veterans Memorial Bridge (Weirton-Steubenville), opened in May 1, 1990.  According to West Virginia's Department of Transportation, the cable‑stayed Veterans Memorial Bridge carrying US 22 between Weirton, West Virginia and Steubenville, Ohio is instead a monolith of both concrete and steel, combining the strengths of both.
This is the Steubenville  Railroad Bridge

According to Alan Hall, a Steubenville resident, the Market Street and Fort Steuben Bridges is the NS RR Bridge, a massive cantilever structure built in 1926 with 1909 approaches on the site of an 1865 bridge (reuses one pier). It handled the Pennsylvania RR Main Line, the Panhandle route until downgraded by Conrail. Today it is a dead end to industry on the WV side. The 1926 structure was constructed around the previous bridge, maintaining rail traffic except for one day required to switch-over.  Further research has revealed that the actual construction date of the current bridge is apparently 1936.
Market Street Bridge, an old but heavily altered suspension bridge, was built in 1905.  This was  re-opened  prior to the  demolition of  the Fort Steuben Bridge.

3 Things to Do if You are Injured in a Dangerous Property

No morning seems bleak enough to promise an accident. It’s all too easy, however, to experience sudden harm, especially when wandering through unfamiliar properties with uneven ground, exposed wiring, and even poorly lit stairwells that can cause instant complications. The chances for injury rise to dangerous percentages.


It’s essential therefore that all individuals understand the risks of poorly maintained properties; recognizing what to do when injured while visiting one of those properties is important, too. 

What is a Dangerous Property

Often legal definitions confuse, with too many meanings and too many subtleties. A dangerous property is, however, explained in its very name. 
Any location (private or public) that doesn’t comply with state and city ordinances is a dangerous property. Common concerns within these areas are inadequate handrails, improperly constructed staircases, or cords spread across the floor. Their owners are liable for any harm caused to visitors.

Three Things to Do When Injured

Tripping unexpectedly over discarded wires or falling on sidewalks uprooted by trees can lead to serious complications that may require hospitalization, physical therapy, or other medical treatments. Therefore, knowing what to do when this occurs is vital.

Seek Help

Never assume that any injury is simple. Exposure to dangerous properties can transform even the smallest cuts into infections. All individuals should seek help. Consult with a doctor and receive any needed treatments. 

Document Injury

When debating whether to seek legal ramifications, individuals should first document their pain. Take photographs from multiple angles. File reports with the police. Have doctors offer copies of their notes as well as any needed prescriptions. This will ensure that the court system takes every injury seriously.

Find a Lawyer

Pursuing a law suit (whether against a private property owner or the city) requires help. Choose the right lawyer, like a New York Personal Injury Attorney, to present a case properly. Look for attorneys who specialize in medical and personal injury claims. Seek referrals from family members and friends. And even interview candidates before making a decision, becoming aware of their education, experiences, and success rates.

State Laws: A Warning

Individuals injured on dangerous properties are protected by the law. The statute of limitations for those laws, however, varies from state to state. Understand how much time is available to act and don’t delay.

Conclusion


A dangerous property can cause endless complications. Try always to avoid these areas; but when this isn’t possible, be aware of the legal options that are available. Are you willing to fight against every shaky staircase and broken sidewalk?

Pleasure is a Shadow


Pleasure is a shadow, wealth is vanity, and power a pageant; 
but knowledge is ecstatic in enjoyment, perennial in frame, 
unlimited in space and indefinite in duration.

A Little Sunshine

A cloudy day or a little sunshine have as great an influence on many constitutions 
as the most recent blessings or misfortunes.
