Who is Saint Valentine?

WHAT IS VALENTINE'S DAY?

Every February 14th gifts, flowers, cards and candies are exchanged between loved ones all in celebration of Saint Valentine. But who is mystifying Saint?

THE MAN, THE MYTH, THE LEGEND

The Catholic church recognizes at least two saints by the name of Valentine. One legend contends that he was a priest, during the third century in Rome. During this time, Emperor Claudis II decided that men with no wife and children at home made better soldiers and outlawed marriage for young men. St. Valentine realizing the injustice of this new law, continued to perform marriages for the young lovers in secret. Once his actions were discovered, Claudis ordered St. Valentine be put to death.

Another story suggest that Valentine may have been put to death for helping Christians escape stringent prisons in Rome. According to one legend, Valentine sent the first valentine greeting himself after falling in love with his jailer's daughter. Before his death, Valentine wrote her a letter and signed it "From your Valentine", a phrase that is still used today. This truth behind this legend is murky, but it emphasizes the meaning of Valentine's Day-LOVE.


Whoever the Saint is behind this holiday, make sure you take the time on February 14th to let your spouse, parents, children or friends know that they are appreciated and loved


HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.


MARTIN LUTHER KING JR DAY


January 15, 1929 in Atlanta GA, Mrs. Alberta Williams King gave birth to a baby boy, Martin Luther King Jr. Growing up, Dr. King sang in the choir at his family's church. At the age of 6, Dr. King befriended a white child but they were separated as they started school. King suffered from depression through much of his life. In his adolescent years, he initially felt resentment against other races due to the "racial humiliation" that he, his family, and his neighbors often had to endure in the segregated South. At age 12, after the death of his grandmother, King blamed himself and jumped out of a second-story window, thankfully surviving. 



In High School, at Booker T Washington High, he came known for his distinguished public speaking ability. He joined the schools debate team. In 1942, King became the youngest assistant manager of a newspaper delivery station for the Atlanta Journal. During his JR year, he won first prize in an oratorical contest. The respective Morehouse College announced during Kings' JR year that they would accept any student who could pass their entrance exam. At the young age of 15, King passed the exam and entered Morehouse.

At 18, the summer before his last year at Morehouse, Dr. King decided to enter the ministry. Graduating at 19, with a BA in sociology, he then enrolled in Crozer Theological Seminary in Chester, PA. At Crozer, King was elected president of the student body. In his third year he became romantically involved with the white daughter of an immigrant woman who worked as a cook in the cafeteria. King planned to marry her but was advised against it by friends. They convinced King to break off the relationship because "an interracial marriage would provoke animosity from both blacks and whites, potentially damaging his chances of ever pastoring a church in the South." A friend of Kings stated that his feelings for this woman always lingered and that "he never recovered".  He graduated in 1951. 


In 1953, Dr. King married Coretta Scott on the lawn of her parents home in Alabama. They had 4 children together

In 1955, The Montgomery Bus Boycott, a civil-rights protest, African Americans refused to ride the city buses in Montgomery, AL to protest the seating segregation. In 1956, the protest proved successful when the Supreme Court decided that the segregation laws on buses were unconstitutional. 


Dr. King, as the chief spokesperson, was fundamental in the success of the Civil Rights Movement. It ended the segregation of African Americans in the South and other parts of the USA. As head of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, King rose to national prominence. He promoted nonviolent tactics, such as the massive March on Washington. In 1964 Dr. King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize

Tragically, the life of this influential man was stolen by assassination in 1968.  President Ronald Reagan signed Martin Luther King Jr Day into law in 1983. 


Martin Luther King Jr Day is an American Federal Holiday marking the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr. The Holiday is observed on the third Monday of  January each year, falling close to Dr. King's birthday, January 15th.

Passing a Garbage Truck


WHAT DOES GEORGIA LAW STATE ABOUT PASSING A GARBAGE TRUCK?

In 2015, the legislature added a new statute, OCGA 40-6-16.1, a companion to OCGA 40-6-16 which deals with passing emergency vehicles.  OCGA 40-6-16 is known as the "move over" law.
The new statute is basically a "move over" law for sanitation vehicles.  The law applies to such vehicles operated as authorized by a county or municipal governing authority and displaying flashing yellow, amber, white or red lights.
Drivers are required to approach the vehicle with "due caution."  The law requires approaching drivers to move into a lane not adjacent to the vehicle if possible.  If such a lane change is not possible or would be unsafe, then the driver is directed to slow the driver's speed to a speed which is at least ten miles per hour less than the posted limit or 25 mph, whichever is greater.  
The violation carries a fine of up to $500.    
The law applies to vehicles traveling in the the same direction and the opposite direction as the vehicle with active sanitation workers.

Why You Should Have A Clean Garage


 TOP FIVE REASONS YOU SHOULD HAVE A CLEAN GARAGE


Storing unused items in the garage may seem like a good idea, until you need to use your garage! Continue reading to see the top five reasons a clean garage is important and get tips and tricks on how to get your garage clean and organized!

#1 
RAIN, RAIN
Although rain water isn't inherently hard on your car, some elements left behind after the rain has evaporated can be concerning. Dirt, dust and other small particles can be left on your vehicle and cause your car to lose its shine.
 Acid rain is defined as “rainfall made sufficiently acidic by atmospheric pollution.”
Acid rain can occur in a lot of places, more commonly found in the Northeastern United States. The pattern of high acidity is caused by large numbers of cities, the dense population, and the concentration of power and industrial plants. Not to say acid rain doesn't occur anywhere else. Wind carries pollution. The best protection for your car in your vigilance. Making sure to keep your garage clean and clear to ensure your car can sit nicely in covered protection during every storm is your best bet to keep that shine as long as possible. 

#2
STAY ORGANIZED
There's no better feeling that needing something and knowing EXACTLY where to get it! Keeping your garage organized may seem like a big job but you'll be happy you did it! Having all your tools, garden tools, hoses, ladders etc all in specific places will prevent getting frustrated from having to dig deep into a mess to try and find what you need. Check out THIS handy and inexpensive garage storage organization rack! Totes are also a great tool to help you stay organized. Especially when it comes to storing holiday decorations!

#3
DAMAGE PREVENTION
Aw, HAIL! A rain and hail storm just welcomed itself to your city and you parked outside! Damage caused by hail can include dents, broken windows, cracked windshields, and if they are large enough, even engine damage! Not to mention the high winds that accompany storms. Powerful winds can cause trees to fall right where you decided to park your car. Make sure your garage it accessible to protect your car from Mother Nature!

#4
THIEVES IN THE NIGHT
And I'm not talking about those cute little ones who dig through your trash. I'm talking about actually thieves. The one who break your windows to steal your electronics, cash, cards or even your identity. If you leave your car out of your garage overnight, you may be unknowingly welcoming these lowlifes to steal your belongings. Parking in a garage makes your car inaccessible and ensures that what is yours, stays yours!

#5
EQUIPMENT
Having your garage clean, clear and organized can protect more than just your car! Creating a space where you can safely store tools, lawn mower, leaf blowers, weed eaters and more will protect these items. Having them safely stored away prevents rust from the rain, someone stealing them or even someone hitting them with their car! 

Remember, cleaning out your garage is beneficial in so many ways! Disposing of boxes, bags, old Christmas decorations and so much more opens up some much space! Call Bin There Dump That @ 404-692-2838 to learn more about dumpster rentals

Flooded Garage Cleanup

Flooded Garage Cleanup: 15 Tips and Practices


Floods are among the most destructive natural hazards. Learning about the best practices to prevent, clean and restore flood damage in your home is essential in order to minimize accidents, health problems, and the need for costly repairs.

Common Causes of Garage Flooding

Flooding can be a nightmare for every homeowner. Not only is it difficult to deal with, but repairing flood damage is also a very expensive undertaking. 
The garage is among the parts of a home that are most prone to flood damage. Thankfully, there are plenty of ways to deal with it. 
But before we jump into that, let us first talk about the most common causes of garage flooding.

Sewage Flooding 

Sewer flooding can happen for a number of reasons. For instance, there could be a failure of the sewerage, too much pressure, or blockage in the drainage pipes
These problems are often triggered by bad weather conditions, such as when too much rainwater enters the sewers from surrounding houses, roads and land. 
Sewage leaks can happen from underneath the garage and seep up, causing water damage inside the garage. 

Burst Water Pipes 

Fresh water pipes (which are located in the yard) that supply water to a house can burst, which causes the water to enter the garage from the ground below.

Flooding Caused by Bad Weather

Heavy rainfall, hurricane or storm surges can almost cause flooding especially in lowland. 
Overflowing water from nearby sources, including streams, broken dams, or lakes can cause flooding too.

Repairing, Cleaning & Preventing Garage Flooding: Best Practices 

Addressing water damage problems in your garage before, during and after flooding is essential. 
Below are some of the best practices that every homeowner can follow to protect their garage from structural problems caused by flooding: 

Identify sources of water problems

Prevention is better than “repair”. Taking time to determine sources of water that could serve as potential trigger for flooding is important. 
Check your drainage pipes and if necessary, divert water from the garage. Burst pipes should be fixed immediately as well.

Install flood barrier 

If you live in a lowland area, consider installing garage barrier in your property. 
flood barrier is a good investment especially if your garage contains household items that are hard to replace or too expensive to just be damaged by water. 

Weather-strip your garage door 

Weather-stripping the bottom of your garage door is very important to prevent water damage. 
If you already have weather-stripping in your garage door, conduct a routinely to ensure that it hasn’t worn out yet. 

Check the foundation too 

Maintaining a strong foundation is crucial to preventing flooding in your garage. 
Have it inspected regularly for cracks or damage which could cause sewage line or sewer water pipes to burst. 

Clean the gutters 

Your gutters have a very important role in protecting your garage from water damage as they designed to lead water (from rain or melted ice) through a downpipe and out to the drainage system and away from your home.Flooded Area
Make sure to clean your gutters from leaves and other debris and repair any crack or holes. Do the same thing with the rest of your garage roofing system. 

Waterproof the walls 

Applying waterproof veneer to the walls will create a seal to ensure that water doesn’t seep in. 

Install adequate flood drainage

Flood drains divert water path away from your home and garage. They are a very helpful addition especially whenever there is a serious flooding in your area. 
Additionally, smooth down uneven ground that could direct water to your garage. 
Cleaning and restoring garage water damage should be done immediately after flood waters subside. Here are the most important steps to take: 

Ensure everyone’s safety 

Before entering your garage, check if there are no major damage that could compromise your safety. 
Keep children and pets away from the flooded area until the cleanup is complete. 

Take out wet contents 

They have to be washed and dried completely under the sun. Items that have been badly damaged or soaked in water and can no longer be disinfected must be discarded. 
Drywall and insulation that have been soaked in water are likely to be removed and discarded as well.
Typically, in these scenarios a 20 yard dumpster will best your best option for waste and garbage disposal. Bin There Dump That has national relationships with many of the water restoration franchises across the country, including PuroClean and DKI Property Restoration 

Remove water using the right tools and equipment 

Make sure that you are also properly geared to avoid exposure to contaminated floodwater. 

Wash all surfaces 

Once the water has been removed, wash the floors, walls and other surfaces with soapy warm, clean water. 

Sanitize surfaces using specialized cleaning solutions, such as bleach 

If there’s mold, scrub to remove it. If the mold infestation is too large to handle, it is better to call professionals for help. 

Use air movers throughout the cleaning process 

An air mover significantly speed up the drying time by reducing the amount of moisture present in the air. 

Dry everything 

Have your garage interiors dried completely before re-organizing or putting items back. 

Seek help 

Call water restoration professionals to ensure that there was no serious structural damage in your garage. Ask about the different options or ways to better waterproof and flood-proof your garage in the future. The garage is an important extension of any home. It’s where you store some of your most valuable belongings.
