At this disturbing point in time, with sexual harassment taking place everywhere including schools and sanctimonious churches, I recommend reading my book entitled, “WOMEN OF CITY HALL” which specifically addresses workplace sexual harassment.

“WOMEN OF CITY HALL,” based on a true story, is an eye-opening expose documenting unwanted sexual advances, predatory behavior and sexual misconduct toward women AND toward men in what supposedly should be a staid, professional and safe office environment.

No one should have to suffer in an abusive, hostile work environment.

“WOMEN OF CITY HALL” helps define what abuse is for naïve young women and young men just beginning their careers. It’s better to be informed as to what is going on in this day and age rather than not know anything and becoming a victim.

“WOMEN OF CITY HALL” is listed for sale on Amazon.com.

Not that happy with Chem Dry carpet cleaning product, their carpet cleaning service or any other carpet cleaners?

Try cleaning your carpet yourself with your own carpet cleaning machine or use one you’ve rented, but purchase a product called FOLEX. It’s not only an instant spot remover, but when it’s correctly mixed with water, it gets the carpet clean with carpet cleaning machines. You’ll find that it works so much better than Chem Dry. It can be purchased at most hardware stores.

Have you ever been asked to buy something or do something that for one reason or another you really don’t want to do?

The easiest way to answer these types of requests from friends, relatives or anyone else without antagonizing them is to say, “I’ll think about it.”

“I’ll think about it” usually satisfies every request simply because they will think you are in the process of deciding whether or not you are going to agree to their request, but in reality you are stalling them indefinitely which usually gets you off the “hook” permanently.

Nine times out of ten, they will have changed their mind about what they wanted, or they got someone else to grant them their request, or they decided it was a bad idea in the first place and won’t ask you for that particular favor again.

Thinking of buying a house or building a house on a heavily-wooded lot with lots of tall trees?

You might want to think twice about doing that or even planting trees that will grow to 20 feet or more.

Every time one or more of those trees dies and/or needs to be cut down, it will cost a lot of money which is something most people don’t initially think of when purchasing property in forested areas or when planting trees that in time will grow to be quite tall.

Believe it or not, the answer is yes!

Some cities like San Luis Obispo, California actually will issue you a second parking ticket even though they already issued you a parking meter violation citation if you still haven’t moved your car after an hour or so after your time on the meter has run out.

Let’s say you park at a two hour time zone parking meter and your time expires. You will get a citation (ticket) costing you $33.00. But if your car is still there after three or four hours, you can be given another ticket for overtime parking which will cost you an additional $43.00 or a whopping total of $76.00!

Meter Maids have been known to issue  tickets the moment the meter’s time runs out even as a shopper  attempts to put more coins in the meter!

To avoid these overly punitive fines, be sure to remove the chalk mark on your tire if there is one, then move your car to another block or better yet, park in the parking garage.

As an added note for your general information, some cities like Santa Barbara, California do not consider holidays to be exempt from feeding the meter. You still have to feed the meters or you will get a parking ticket.

What is the answer?

If you want to move, do you buy another house first and move into it before you have sold your present house?

Absolutely not!

First of all, if you want to sell your house, it will sell faster with your furniture still there in your home. That way, people will get a good idea how the rooms will look with their furniture.

Unless you’ve won the lottery, no matter how much you would like to buy another house, it’s very risky doing so before your present house has sold no matter how good of a deal the new house may be.

Always sell the house you already have before buying another or you could lose both if you end up having to make payments on both of them.

Keep all your windows and doors closed and stay inside during the time trash is being picked up and dumped into the trash trucks, otherwise dust and dirt particles from the dumping of neighborhood trash cans will waft through air and end up settling not only on everything in your home but, more importantly, in your lungs.

Has your fingernail polish over time become so thick and gummy you think it’s time to throw it away and buy more?

Nail polish can be rather expensive depending upon where you buy it and the kind of brand.

All you have to do is go to your local beauty supply store and purchase finger nail polish thinner. By adding a small amount to old nail polish, it will thin it to where it is like it’s brand new again.

Females participating in sports tend to dislike their hair cut too short, so they pull their long hair tightly back from the scalp into ponytails fastened with tight rubber bands. Sometimes parents have the habit of doing this to their children, too, on a daily basis.

Over time, hair, especially at the forehead, will recede after being severely pulled away from the face and tied with a tight rubber band until it is very obvious that damage has already been done.

Hair grooming methods such as cornrowing can cause loss of hair, too, and, unfortunately, it may never grow back.
