So this year's rant.. I live in a condo and a neighbor has a gas grill on the second floor deck. These are illegal. I sent letters to the office and was told they called the resident and that was all they could do. When I moved in someone here yelled at me and sent me a copy of the "book of rules". Apparently gas grill tanks explode and can cause a fire. Welcome 2021..
An H-town Life rant thread is my rant. Real ranters ron’t rant rere, Reggie :-(
Be great to really speak our minds, or lack thereof.
Propane anywhere within 5 feet of structure -including decks is against state fire codes -
do what you need to so this can be enforced - in multifamily dwellings
eh.....on propane ---- it depends....fyi --- 125 is bigger than those vertical tubes, it's a fat-boy vertical. Thank goodness since many of us propane bbq close to home....
Tanks under 125 gallons water capacity:
must be at least 10 feet from a window air conditioner
must be placed a minimum of 5 feet from a crawl space opening
Tanks 125-500 gallons water capacity:
must be placed a minimum of 10 feet from a building
must be at least 10 feet from a line of adjoining property
Tanks up to 2000 gallons water capacity:
must be placed a minimum of 25 feet from the building
no part of an underground tank of this size shall be less than 10 feet from a building or line of adjoining property
Natural gas or electric grills are the only ones permitted on condo decks.
If association will not respond, contact the County Fire Marshall’s office. They’ll happily write a violation.
I believe it is $350 for a violation.
I am real confuse. Can anyone make sense of this?
Lawyerspeak, all the way on that blog, blah, blah blah, blah, blah blah blah.
Got bored about halfway through and saying get to the blanking point without the sidebars and clicked it off.
Mmadone- contact someone on the Board and INSIST that they have the Mgt. Co. send out a warning. Don’t let them blow you off.
County Fire Marshal would LOVE to write a violation.
Had similar problem.
If in Warren County, depending on the Twp.,
Town won’t handle it they just do smoke
They’ll refer you to the County.
And they take their job VERY seriously.
Gee Phil, given your precision, figured that would be roght up your alley.
I have a cement floor open porch with roof with cathedral ceiling roof n wall more than 5 ft away. I’m sticking with the bbq there.
My 100lb range/generator tank is next to house and has been through umpteen inspections.
Like I said, very confusing.
End of month. A lot of cops out and about, speed traps, on patrol, etc.
C'mon! Two property owners that refuse to clear the snow from their sidewalks. 14 Mitchell on the corner of Shelley and Mitchell. 2 Seymour Terrace on the corner of Mitchell and Seymour. These property's connect making the entire block from Seymour Terrace to Shelley Drive a walking disaster! Both walks were only cleared after the large storm but NOTHING since. The last 4 snow events the sidewalks have been completely ignored by both property owners for some inexcusable reason.
This has created a very unsafe, dangerous situation. Not to mention a violation of law. It is also quite simply a clear message of having zero respect for neighbors.
Both parties are physically well equipped to clear the walkway as has typically been the norm for years.
Disgraceful and unacceptable.
Oh yeah, you mean the place with essentially zero line of sight in that direction when you're making a turn off of Mitchell also.
I've also seen that a lot of people still don't know that parking, when it's allowed, is only on the even house numbers side of the street. That goes for all around town.
perhaps people needing a vacation? Really depends on what you do and how you do it. However, it appears that Mexican cruise's are really out of style proving once again that you just can't keep immediately doing exactly what your kids tell you to do. They're kids.
I know a lot of people going to Florida, Disney to be precise. People just don't care anymore. Once things started opening, people took it as the pandemic was over.
I hope the false assumption that the pandemic is over goes away - unless and until the virus is really gone.................a lot of unwise behavior out there
Like I said earlier, try to stop people in June is going to be virtually impossible...
Bothered , yup. I saw someone on Facebook that kept taking her kids all over to swim and having fun posting pics of groups - They now all have Covid. It's not over. People are getting too lacking now with protection, but were scared to death a year ago.
My wife and I went on our honeymoon to Mexico back in September. It was very relaxed and enjoyable
The pandemic is far from over. Vacation at your own risk but remember there are others to consider if you use unsafe behavior. Our nation has performed worse than a bunch of toddlers regarding safe behavior and thinking of others.
If teachers are able to go out and buy their own groceries and go out to Walmart and target they can certainly go to school to teach kids in school. It's time to open the schools 5 days a week.
Open the schools and dock the pay of any teacher who doesn't show up.
We went on several vacations last year in the middle of the pandemic. We were in our RV and felt very safe. We’re completely self-contained and didn’t need to use any public facilities (restaurants, bathrooms, showers). We were isolated at the campsites and enjoyed the great outdoors hiking and relaxing. We plan on doing the same this year.....once the snow melts!
Forcing people to go to work in a pandemic without vaccines is unchristian.
Let’s attack a whole profession because we all are walking in their shoes, right? Classrooms are confined spaces whereas big box stores are not. And we are off to the races.
Open the U.S.A.
The kids are victims. Sheltered, bored, scared, confused, lonely. Not good.
I thought it was Chicago where the union doesn't want to open schools. I don't recall that happening here. Did I miss something? I think teachers want to go back to the classrooms.
I don't think it's unreasonable to prioritize vaccinating teachers. Open the schools. Open the country. Live your life.
Teachers I spoke to do want to go back as long as it’s safe. To trash them as lazy and enjoying working from home while homeschooling their own kids and managing family issues is just narrow-minded.
And kids want to go back, too! As long as it’s safe.
When I was young and of school age we were registering for the draft, watching the numbers being drawn on TV and getting shipped out.
JUST SUCK IT UP.
Closer to the end than to the beginning.
Disappointed that Sonny's wings are the size of a canary and you get nine. My little can eat that all by himself with the tiny size of them. LOL. I've never seen 'wings' that little, even Bette Midler's. (bad joke)
DDA- I damn near spit out my coffee on the canary wing line! LOL. On the flip side Marley's serves wings from seemingly Big Bird!.
Greg, good to know. I'm sure they'd rather be full after eating wings rather than checking the bird cage for an escapee. ;)
How many DFU's can you put on a 2"vent ??
@Greg, very good!!
Just trying to have a little fun!!
I can't believe I'm living in a world that is reassigning the gender of a plastic potato....
Yea, Greg sad isn't it? I remember the sixties, they were fun. Just didn't realize what was coming.
Greg, LOL. The potato also has interchangeable parts, so it's even funnier. Just put the stache on 'Mrs.' Potato Head, I guess. It's laughable. How far are we going with this stuff?
Until something is done to stop this nonsense it will continue to happen. RIP Mr. Potato Head.
What nonsense? They changed the brand to Potato Head. Gender neutral brand. Big deal. It's not British Petroleum either, it's BP. You can still buy by gender getting a Potato Head, named Mister Potato Head right on the box or a Potato Head, named Mrs. Potato Head right on the box too. Family sets will be gender neutral and show male/male, female/female right on the cover. Kids can use their imagination and be gender unrestricted. Can even invent a feminine potato head with a mustache like my Aunt Edna. Cool.
What I am still upset about is the fake plastic potato body moving kids away from torturing vegetables. Where's the fun in fake plastic. We knew the joys of jabbing live root stock in the 50's. Why, I had to put on heavy clothes, grab my shovel, and dig up my own bodies in order to play Mr. Potato head when I was young. We learned the joys of having to kill in order to play back then when we did the things needing to be done to do it right :>)
And WW just doesn’t cut it for Weight Watchers, nor Dunkin without the donuts! Next up: Bucks for Starbucks because it’s that overpriced! Wa for WaWa! Let’s have some fun here!
LOL, For reals. Saying WW takes twice as long as saying Weight Watchers, right? I think maybe they pay by the letter for advertising. LOL. Or Oprah had something to do with it since she owns a stake in it. Didn't like her as a spokesperson though, because she never seemed to lose weight.
@DogDayAfternoon. Not a fan of Oprah at all. Respect her life story but it ends there. Another thread perhaps. Gotta get my "Dunkin" and then register at WW. LOL
LOL - For reals.
Just looking at an ad in classifieds for almost a 100 bucks a day for a doggy workout? I'm in the wrong business.
Not for nothing, but that ad for a job at RDJ could scare off anyone. It might as well say 'Do it all Monday through Friday. Weekends'. I sure hope the main woman isn't gone. Her name escapes me, but very efficient and friendly. That ad is way too much to list for that little place. You can get hired at Microsoft with a smaller ad. ;)
If cupboard is pronounced "cubbard" and clapboard is pronounced "clabbard", why isn't clipboard pronounced "clibbard"?
Wish this was a country that you could get antibiotics over the counter and eliminate doc appointments that you know you don't need.
There is no one antibiotic that is effective against all diseases. How would you know which one to buy and if it for sale or know what your specific issue is or it's needs? I don't think the doctor visit is onerous in time or trouble if it gets me the best solution for my issue.
Absolutely correct and not only that, but most people just ask the doc for an antibiotic to kill the bug and get it over with. Overprescription due to patient insistence on them as well as some doctors just "throwing" an antibiotic at it when it wasn't indicated (or to shut up an overly insistent patient, has led to new "superbugs" which are resistant to all but the strongest antibiotics.
antibio, Theres a possible allergic reaction to some as well. Are they otc in other counties.
