Pumpkin Carving Can Be So Impressive

It’s amazing what some people can do with pumpkin carving. Some go the scary route, others do homages to famous movie scenes or people. Here are some incredible ones I found for your enjoyment!

I’m breaking the law?

Did you know that it is illegal to leave a vehicle running and unattended in the state of Tennessee?

24058556_SA

 

During the winter months more vehicles are reported stolen because many drivers start their cars to warm them up and then go back into the house – in violation of the law. It is unfortunate, but you have to sit in the car if you are going to warm it up.

 

This is important to note for two reasons:

 

1.  If you’ve left a running, unattended vehicle and it is stolen, and then involved in an accident or a crime, you could be held responsible for the damages.

 

2.  Insurance companies can be reluctant to pay a claim when it can be proven that the keys were left inside the stolen car.

 

Its amazing how one such seemingly innocent event can quickly turn into a terrible nightmare.  Its better to be safe than sorry, sit in your car and warm it up – even in your own driveway.  Thieves are on the lookout for such opportunities!

 

Other interesting laws in our Volunteer State

 

I feel that it is important to note, with the Thanksgiving Holiday fast approaching, that in Tennessee it is legal to gather and consume roadkill.

 

Any person who participates in a duel may not hold any public office in the state.  I think we’d all be surprised at how many folks that rules out…

 

Our seat belt law requires you to wear your seatbelt, but the law specifically prohibits law enforcement officials from pulling you over for solely not wearing it.  Police officers can only ticket you for the violation if and only if you are pulled over for another offense, like speeding.

 

And I’ll leave you with this – 

 

Ok, this is old, old old… but long ago, a city ordinance in Memphis actually stated that a woman was not allowed to drive a car unless a man is walking in front of the car waving red fabric or flags to warn people and other cars. Glad we’re over that one!

5 Inventive Ways to Declutter Your Floor

There’s nothing like feeling more organized and decluttered than to get things off the floor. Here are some inventive ways to do just that!

 

 

Hang your automatically-sorted laundry above the washer instead of keeping hampers on the floor of your closet.

Instead of the floor being your child’s toy chest, hang decorative baskets on the wall to hold toys, stuffed animals and books.

Bicycles take up a lot of floor space – so hang them instead!

Strap an extension cord to the leg of a table so the many plugs coming out of it don’t take up a whole foot of space. Plus, it looks so much neater.

The entryway is one of the worst clutter offenders – so build hanging options for storing shoes, coats, backpacks, and more!
