Christmas Tree Fire Safety Tips

Christmas Tree Fire Safety Tips

Christmas Tree Fire Safety Tips

Christmas time is a truly spectacular time of the year. Everyone everywhere is decorating their homes for the holiday. For many, this means placing a Christmas tree up in the center of the living room for everyone to enjoy. It is tradition after all. However, while having a real pine tree in the house is nice, it can quickly turn dangerous if a person is not careful.

Evergreen trees, while a large part of the Christmas celebration, can be very flammable. If someone isn’t careful, they can easily start a fire that ruins their entire holiday celebration. In order to prevent that, a person should follow these tips.

  • Pick a tree that does not lose needles at the touch of a finger. If a person touches a tree and it loses a lot of needles, then the tree is already beginning to dry out. Drier trees are more flammable than fresher ones.
  • Place the tree away from any heat sources. If a tree is too close to a heat source, it could easily ignite.
  • Once a tree is placed, it should be watered every single day. When a tree is watered daily, its life is prolonged, making it less of a fire hazard.
  • Replace light strings that are broken or damaged. This way they cannot cause a spark when placed on the tree.
  • Never use candles as decorations on a tree.
  • Always turn off the lights in the tree before leaving the house or going to bed.
  • After the holiday, get the tree out of the house as soon as possible. Once out of the house, do not store the tree against the house.

Christmas trees are a large part of the Christmas holiday. The festivities wouldn’t be the same without the sights and smells of evergreen trees. A person just needs to be careful. They do not want their precious tree to cause a fire and ruin the entire holiday for them.

 

Drivers Have To Stop

Drivers Have To Stop

Drivers Have To Stop

California is notorious for having drivers who like to play by their own rules. Drivers in the state seem to follow the mentality that if everyone does it, it must be okay. However, this is not the case. After all, if other drivers drove off of a bridge, you wouldn’t follow them. Besides, a driver can still get into trouble for breaking a law, even if other drivers broke it too.

A perfect example of this is when drivers approach stop signs. A driver is supposed to come to a full stop at the limit line, the white line in the road, when they approach a stop sign. This is required by law. However, many drivers prefer to do a rolling stop, also known as a California stop.

A rolling stop occurs when a vehicle does not stop. Instead, it slows to an almost stop, then continues on without truly coming to a stop. This common practice is actually illegal and can earn a person a traffic ticket. A ticket for this offense can cost around $140.

As with all traffic violations in California, acquiring too many tickets for rolling stops can cause a person to lose their license.

When a driver approaches a stop sign, they need to stop at the limit line, or the edge of the crosswalk. The vehicle needs to come to a full stop, meaning the wheels aren’t moving and the speedometer needle is at 0. After stopping for 3 seconds, the driver can then proceed through the intersection if it is clear.

Drivers in a hurry tend to not stop, preferring to simply slow down instead, in order to save time. This can be dangerous and cause an accident, which is why it is against the law. If a law enforcement officer sees a driver do this, they will pull that driver over and give him or her a ticket.

Can Minors Drink in California?

Can Minors Drink in California?

Can Minors Drink in California?

As holidays such as Christmas and New Year’s roll around, there are plenty of parties to attend. Families get together to catch up and reflect on the passing year. These parties are full of fun, and typically, full of drinking. As long as there is no driving after the drinking, this is no problem for adults. After all, they can drink whenever they like.

However, problems can arise when the kids, especially teens, see all of the adults drinking. The fact that teens want to grow up sooner rather than later is no secret. One of their favorite requests is to join their parents and other adult relatives in drinking.

Some parents are fine with this request. They see no problem with it since the teen is in a safe and controlled environment surrounded by trusted adults. However, this is a problem in the State of California. If a parent or guardian is not careful, they could wind up in trouble with the law.

The Law In California

Here in California, and the rest of the United States, the legal age for a person to begin consuming alcohol is 21. Anyone under the age of 21 who consumes alcohol is breaking the law. The state of California makes it a crime to give or sell alcohol to a minor with Business and Professions Code 25658.

Under Business and Professions Code 25658, selling or furnishing alcohol to a minor is a misdemeanor offense. The law can apply to anyone who gives alcohol to a minor, or any minor who gets access to alcohol through the use of a fake ID.

What many people do not realize, is that this law applies to anyone who gives alcohol to a minor. This includes parents or guardians of the minor in question. If a minor is found to have a blood alcohol concentration of (BAC) 0.05% or greater, then the parent could face misdemeanor charges.

The Penalties

In California, parents who are found guilty of providing their child, who is a minor, with alcohol face misdemeanor charges. This means that they can face:

  • Up to 1 year in county jail.
  • A max fine of $1,000.
  • Some combination of fine and jail time.

These penalties are just slightly better than what a random person would face for breaking Business and Professions Code 25658. In addition to the above penalties, a person breaking this law would also be required to complete at least 24 hours of community service. If the person knowingly sold alcohol to a minor they, or the business, can lose their license to sell alcohol.

If someone under the age of 21 purchases or consumes alcohol on their own, they will face:

  • A $250 fine.
  • 24 to 32 hours of community service.
  • A 1 year suspension of their driver’s license, or a 1 year delay on being able to obtain their license.

Subsequent offenses lead to increased penalties for the minor in question.

Keep The Holidays Safe

While kids, especially teens, are always excited to grow up in a hurry, there are some things that should wait. Consuming alcohol is definitely one of those things. Not only is it not a great idea to allow a minor to consume alcohol, it can also get an adult into legal trouble. Even if the adult in question is the parent or guardian.

If a person wants to stay out of trouble this holiday season, then they need to drink responsibly. This means knowing their limits, having a designated driver (DD), and not allowing minors to consume alcohol. So long as a person does that, they can close out the year with loved ones and not behind bars.

 

Have A Safe Holiday Season This Year

Have A Safe Holiday Season This Year

The holiday season is officially here, and many people are getting ready to have some fun at family, friends, or office parties. Everyone celebrates in their own special way, but many celebrations will be including alcohol. If that is the case, then a person should be prepared to get home safely that evening.

Holiday season is all about getting together with people you are close with. Since it’s a celebration, there will likely be a bit of alcohol consumed. If that does happen, the person needs to have a safe ride home since, as everyone knows, driving with alcohol in your system is dangerous and illegal.

In order to avoid getting pulled over, best case scenario, or getting into an accident, worst case scenario, a person should have a designated driver. This can be a someone who has not had any alcohol, or it can be a hired driver. That is the great thing about today’s modern world, it is so easy to get a taxi, Uber, or Lyft to take a person home. Often times, it can be done through an app on the person’s phone.

Drinking and driving is very dangerous, and results in dozens of deaths every single day in the United States.

It is estimated that a person is killed in a drunk driving related accident every 50 minutes. This is a statistic that no one wants to be a part of. Luckily, that can easily be avoided by drinking responsibly, and having a designated driver.

When a person has an assigned designated driver to get them home, they do not have to worry about how much alcohol they are consuming. All they really have to worry about is not giving the people they are with another embarrassing story to talk about for years to come.
 

Where Is Your Food Prepared?

Where Is Your Food Prepared?

Where Is Your Food Prepared?

Everybody is a fan of good food, and most people would argue that the best food out there isn’t found in restaurants. The best food is found in family kitchens. Over the past few years, there has been a growing trend of people selling food that they made in their own homes. While this often provides people with some of the best food they have ever tasted, it does pose a few health concerns. That is why the practice was illegal in the state of California.

The key word there is was.

Starting January of 2019, entrepreneurs will be able to sell food they prepared in their home kitchens.

This change came about thanks to Assembly Bill 626, which was authored by Assemblyman Eduardo Garcia. The hope was that this bill would allow people who couldn’t afford to get into the restaurant business to still get into it.

Before the aspiring new chef can get started selling their meals, they will need to get a permit to do so first. This permit will allow a person to become what is called a microenterprise home kitchen (MHK). An MHK would have to sell less than 60 meals a week, deal directly with their customers, and consent to inspections by local health officials if a complaint has been received.

A benefit to this bill, is that it exempts MHKs from certain rules that apply to restaurants, but don’t really make sense for home kitchens. A couple examples would be the rule that kitchens can’t have openings that lead directly to living spaces, and that kitchens have to have a 3-compartment sink. MHKs would not have meet these standards.

What do you think of this new law? Is it a great step forward for those looking to make a living selling their home cooking, or does it pose too much of a health risk?
