(Un)expected – in case you need the info.

20210511_103222 (1)dievca’s Dad had a Tree Service look at the dead trees on their property.¬† The bad news was to cut and remove the trees would have cost $6K.¬† The good news is that all of the trees would not fall on the house.¬† Dad did not hire the service before he died.

The Midwest had some big winds this winter and a large tree broke in half and came down close to the house Рbut missed it (photos). Just like the tree service said.  What dievca did not expect is that another tree out on the property, leaning away from the neighbors yard, yet, was pushed onto their yard by a significant wind. Nowhere near their house, but it did fall on to their yard.

The neighbor walked over and told the caregiver that it happened and mentioned that they had a service in to clear the tree. The caregiver asked her to speak to dievca’s brother.¬† When dievca got to her Mom’s she heard the tree service at the neighbors, saw the other dead tree from the winter and heard about the neighbor’s vist from the caregiver.

Yes, it was expected that the dead trees would fall at some point (firewood), it was unexpected one would fall on the neighbors lawn -so who pays?

What’s the rule?

  1. If the¬†tree¬†falls on your property or your property is damaged, you’ll make a claim through your home insurance company. If the¬†tree¬†falls on your neighbor’s property or their property is damaged, their home insurance will handle the¬†cleanup and repair work.
  2. In most states, if your¬†tree¬†or any part of it falls on your¬†neighbors‘¬†property¬†and causes damage to their¬†property¬†through no fault of your own (due to a snow storm, winds, hurricane, or another so-called ‚Äúact of God‚ÄĚ), you are not responsible.

The good news is that dievca’s Mom only has one neighbor and there was the only dead tree on that track of land. As for the rest of the trees? Nature is just going to have to move forward unless dievca’s brother decides to hire someone.

Looking for that inexpensive Michelin Star


Michelin LadyThere are restaurants with Michelin stars in 34 countries. Five of these countries don’t have a Michelin-starred meal for less than $100. For example, Norway’s Statholdergaarden is a 17th-century home that became an eatery in 1914. The restaurant serves classic Scandinavian cuisine at a rate of 1,275kr ($151) for the set menu.

Hostellerie la Montagne in Colombey-les-Deux-√Čglises is the world‚Äôs most inexpensive Michelin eatery. The French restaurant offers a seasonal menu¬†for ‚ā¨20 ($25). Outside of Europe, the most affordable meal is at the¬†Three¬†Coins¬†in Taipei, Taiwan. ‚ÄúThe menu is classic Cantonese, with occasional Taiwanese touches, such as the simple but tasty steamed abalone with dried and fresh tomatoes,‚ÄĚ writes the Michelin Guide‚Äôs reviewer. The set menu costs NT$1,000 (US$36)

Why is dievca even offering this information?

 

Fully-vaccinated Americans can now travel freely without having to quarantine or test for COVID-19, according to new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Specifically, Americans who are two weeks out from their final vaccine shot can travel both domestically and internationally and do not need to quarantine when they arrive home unless required by their local jurisdiction, the CDC announced Friday April 2nd, 2021.

Al Brule Travel Pin Up

Fully vaccinated travelers are less likely to get and spread COVID-19. However, international travel poses additional risks and even fully vaccinated travelers are at increased risk for getting and possibly spreading new COVID-19 variants.

CDC recommends delaying international travel until you are fully vaccinated.

If you are fully vaccinated with an FDA-authorized vaccine:

  • You should continue to follow CDC‚Äôs recommendations for traveling safely and get tested 3-5 days after travel.
  • You do NOT need to get tested before leaving United States unless your destination requires it.
  • You do NOT need to self-quarantine after arriving in the United States.
International Travel Recommendations for fully vaccinated travelers:
 
  • Before you travel
    • Make sure you understand and follow all airline and destination requirements related to travel, testing, or quarantine, which may differ from U.S. requirements. If you do not follow your destination‚Äôs requirements, you may be denied entry and required to return to the United States.
    • Check the current¬†COVID-19 situation in your destination.
  • While you are traveling:
    • Wear a¬†mask¬†over your nose and mouth.¬†Masks are required¬†on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States and in U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations.
    • Avoid crowds and¬†stay at least 6 feet/2 meters¬†(about 2 arm lengths) from anyone who is not traveling with you.
    • Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer (with at least 60% alcohol).
  • Before you arrive in the United States:
    • All air passengers coming to the United States,¬†including U.S. citizens and fully vaccinated people,¬†are¬†required¬†to have a negative COVID-19 test result no more than 3 days before travel or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 in the past 3 months before they board a flight to the United States.
  • After travel:
    • Get tested with¬†a¬†viral test¬†3-5 days¬†after travel.
    • Self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms; isolate and get tested if you develop symptoms.
    • Follow all¬†state and local¬†recommendations or requirements after travel.
