A house I own caught fire. It's been center of a legal battle for years. Long ago, a judge awarded the house to someone else, after they made a cash settlement and paid the taxes. Those things didn't happen, then the house caught fire, just 4 days prior to a scheduled "Contempt of Court" hearing.
My insurance company got a call last week, wanting to know why I got money, since the house belongs to them. When asked, no, they hadn't meet the payout, or the taxes, or bought insurance. But want $$
Anyone have feedback to offer about this? I do have an appointment with my attorney later in the week.
Six weeks ago I house I own caught fire. It's been at the center of an ongoing legal battle between myself and former daughter-in-law for nearly 4 years. Most recent decision was last year, when she was ordered to pay me a $ on a specific schedule. She didn't make any payments.
Now the insurance company has drawn their conclusions and sent me a check. She believes that I'm supposed to take her obligation of money off the top, then use the remainder to build her a new home.
Minimalism is all the rage, it seems. Has anyone else noticed that the photos of "clutter" that we are supposed to get rid of always includes a wall of books?
Yes, I know that there are ways of storing written media that don't include paper, ink, and glue. However, I worry that the visual is more of an anti-intellectual message than advertising for a Nook/Fire or whatever those devices are called.
Maybe my brain is a bit too pessimistic but am I the only one that is sometimes troubled by how certain parts of the media embrace black culture.
I'm not talking about institutional racism. What I mean is, even when the media is RT'ing a photo of Janelle Monea or Lupita Nyongo, there's this feel of tokenism and/or objectification.
“Here's this wonderful black thing that we love. Look at how progressive we are.”
I laud that these actors are being celebrated, but...
I'm right on the edge of possibly coming down with that nasty bug that everyone seems to be sharing. So I rifled through the pantry and found the makings for a big pot of chicken, rice, mushroom soup, with lots of healing herbs and pepper. Add lemon/ginger/honey syrup and a pot of lung friendly tea, turn on Netflix and crochet till further notice.
Not nearly enough sleep. Learning that a big portion of your concrete assets burned to the concrete will cause that situation! Hoping to hear back from my attorney, since the house was center of an on-going legal battle between myself and a conniving scammer who thought I should just give it up. Guess they decided that the grapes were sour anyway.
I've had an ongoing legal battle over a house I bought 6 years ago, that someone felt I should let them have. We have a court date to revisit the matter on Thursday afternoon.
About an hour ago I received word that the house no longer exists. A comment said "The house was toasted". So, one problem up in smoke.
It's hard to be optimistic about this at 0 dark 30. Phone calls to lawyer and insurance agent are on tap in about 6 hours.
This bothers me quite a lot. Greenwalt talks about Facebook censorship at the demand of the US government.
SWATting ought to be a felony.
