Captain Nurse Circle Needs “How to Access and Use” Labels on Our Fire Extinguisher Cabinets!

UPDATE 12/04/15:

This blog is now private and protected. I am updating that the labels were finally put on the outside of the fire extinguisher cabinets here on Captain Nurse Circle. This is what the label looks like below:

This fire extinguisher cabinet has a label, but we do not have them here on Captain Nurse Circle yet...

“In case of fire, pull handle firmly”

UPDATE 10/26/15:

North Cal Fire Equipment did not install anything yet.

UPDATE 10/17/15:

Nothing happened his week. The fire extinguishers and cabinets were not serviced as I was told they would be by Andy, the owner of the North Cal Fire Equipment Company…Just updating here and keeping track of this situation…

UPDATE 10/08/15:

Just received a phone call from Andy, the owner of North Cal Fire Equipment, LLC. This is the company that maintains our fire extinguishers here in Meadow Park… He told me that labels have been ordered for all the fire extinguisher cabinets on Captain Nurse Circle and will be installed next week!

I say this is a victory for me as it  seemed nearly impossible to have this important safety feature addressed properly on our fire extinguishers here on Captain Nurse Circle… It was only due to my persistent blogging and emailing that this has finally resolved the right way…I remain the Fire Safety Committee of one for Meadow Park homeowners…

UPDATE 09/28/15:

One year ago, in September 2014, I made a very important post concerning our fire extinguishers. Now, we are due for the yearly inspection and maintenance of these fire extinguishers…Thankfully, there has not been any fire emergencies on my street… But, the fire extinguisher cabinets remain unlabeled and locked up and we do not have access to the keys… I am making this update here and now and putting it on the front page of my blog so others can be informed about this… It is something that the management of our HOA has chosen to ignore.. In fact, I was told this in an email from Wakefield Sharp:

“The Board of Directors for Meadow Park has considered the cost and currently
allows homeowners interested in replacing stickers on fire extinguisher
boxes to do so themselves.”

First of all, I am not sure that the Board of Directors really discussed this at all..Many times Wakefield Sharp has made important decisions without consulting the Board… So I do believe this is an outright lie…

Secondly, there is nothing to replace! The labels were never installed initially.

What a bad property management company this is! Do we really want them to continue here? No way!

I am not doing anything except posting the reality that our fire extinguishers remain non user-friendly.  I am not responsible for a poorly installed fire extinguisher cabinet. Other fire extinguisher cabinets located in the Meadow Park community are properly labeled but not the ones here on Captain Nurse Circle!

A poor installation was allowed to occur and never got fixed….

All fire extinguishers in Meadow Park should be at the same level of use… And this lack of equality is happening still…A very poor management company is trying to put this on the homeowners… We are not to be blamed for this.. It needs to be fixed and done right…

02/10/15:

Now that the HOA is in the fire safety mode (finally!), I am bringing up another issue that I discussed  last year here on my blog:

https://meadowparkcommunityblog.wordpress.com/2014/09/23/fire-extinguishers-in-meadow-park-are-not-user-friendly/

That post was made in September 2014, over 5 months ago and nothing happened!… Our fire extinguishers are checked and replaced every year. This is a law here in California, USA. What I found last year was that there is a big difference in the labeling of the fire extinguisher cabinets here in Meadow Park. For example, our locked fire extinguisher cabinets here on Captain Nurse Circle do not have any labeling which shows how to easily access the locked fire extinguisher in an emergency. This is what they look like here on Captain Nurse Circle:

Typical locked up Meadow Park Fire extinguisher- not user friendly!!! No labeling on how to use!

Typical locked up Meadow Park Fire extinguisher not user-friendly!!! No labeling on how to use!

But, all of the fire extinguisher cabinets in the other five Meadow Park neighborhoods have labeling on the cabinets. See below:

This fire extinguisher cabinet has a label, but we do not have them here on Captain Nurse Circle yet...

This fire extinguisher cabinet has a label, and it is found this way in all of the other neighborhoods in Meadow Park. But we do not have them labeled here on Captain Nurse Circle yet…

BUT THOSE ON CAPTAIN NURSE CIRCLE ARE STILL NOT LABELED!

The Fire Marshal kindly shared with me by email what the label looks like and although he said this is not a state requirement to have these cabinets labeled, the Novato Fire District highly recommends that the cabinets be labeled.. This never happened! I am bringing it up again because it needs to be done right….We need to have this labeling done on our fire extinguisher cabinets here on Captain Nurse Circle ASAP…

So, I sent an email to the fire extinguisher company (North-Cal Fire Equipment LLC) yesterday. It is important that our fire extinguisher access is at the same level as other neighborhoods in Meadow Park and right now, we are at a clear disadvantage…Here is the business card from the technician (Frank Stagnaro) I spoke with last year:

Frank's Business Card

Frank’s Business Card

And, in an emergency it is vitally important to have this labeling easily and readily available. In an emergency, you do not want to try to figure out how to open the fire extinguisher cabinet to access the fire extinguisher. But here on Captain Nurse Circle there are no instructions or labels as of this day, 02/10/15,  and we discussed this problem almost 6 months ago.

Below is the email once more from Novato Fire Marshal B/C Bill Tyler regarding this labeling situation:

: Important mainly because of the people in the conversation

Hi Julia:

This photo was taken by the Property management company of another extinguisher located in the complex. NFD has spoken to the property management regarding the code requirements and the options that they have regarding this situation.

Although this one has a sign on it with instructions on opening the cabinet, it is not required by code to be installed. We are recommending that they install signage on all of the cabinets.

I have attached a copy of the code section and the SFM interpretation on the subject.

Now, I am hoping that this problem will be taken care of in a very responsible and expedient manner. It has been a problem for way too long and was never done correctly since the initial installation. As with other areas of fire safety concern, this is one more little problem that can easily be cleaned up with the cooperation of the HOA management.. I hope that it gets done right this time and soon…

Even though the California state law DOES NOT REQUIRE  locked fire extinguisher cabinets, here in Meadow Park, ours are locked! So either UNLOCK them or LABEL them, do something please!

HOA Rules About Renting and Parking: Why Are They Being Ignored Still?

UPDATE 10/26/15

The very same Fed Ex Express truck is again parked across the street from my home… This activity continues to go on, Monday through Friday.. He seems to think he can come  home and park this Fed EX Express truck here whenever he wants to…… It is not stopping because this illegal parking activity is being allowed by the HOA management company Wakefield Sharp as I previously have blogged… I am simply continuing to document all episodes of illegal parking activities as a homeowner in good standing who was totally ignored when I voiced my concerns here…I hope that soon, this will change for the good…

UPDATE 10/23/15

I am just documenting once again that today, at 11:45 AM, this Fed Ex Express truck parked right in front of my home… This is illegal according to our parking rules which states that trucks cannot park here at any time for any reason other than a very brief delivery time period.

Right now it is 12:15 PM and this truck will most likely be parked here for over one hour. This illegal parking activity has continued non-stop since April 2014 and Meadow Park’s management company, Wakefield Sharp, specifically allows this to occur… In fact, Mark Sharp wrote a lengthy letter stating that this was an “exception” to our rules… This is all I am saying about this activity.. It continues on and on as if it is OK…

It is now 12:35 PM and the Fed Ex Express truck just left….

I am the witness that sees it every day and documents its occurrence right here on Meadow Park Community Blog……

UPDATE 10/08/15

Although this post is concerning important rules about parking and renting, the HOA’s parking rules continue to be ignored totally by the HOA management…

As of this date, a delivery truck continues to park for over one hour each day in the front of my home… This is specifically against our parking rules…. A camper continues to park illegally at the end of my street, in violation of our parking rules… An abandoned vehicle has remained in the same visitor parking location for months and months without being towed… Now, all of these issues are being allowed by the HOA management… They do absolutely nothing and in fact have encouraged the practice of illegal parking here on Captain Nurse Circle… That is the truth…

If the Meadow Park HOA management was really doing their job for us about enforcing our CC&R parking rules , I would not be making this update today…

I have all the documentation and photos I need to prove that this illegal activity continues unchallenged by the HOA management… I will continue to document illegal parking activities on Captain Nurse Circle until the HOA management is addressing their legal responsibilities appropriately and consistently… This is the CC&R governing our parking rules:

3.4 Vehicle and Parking Restrictions. No mobile home, camper, or recreational vehicle, boat, truck (other than pickup trucks that do not exceed three-quarter ton) or similar equipment shall be parked or stored at anytime within the Development (including on any public rights-of-way) except trucks parked on a temporary basis for purposes of loading or unloading.

Occupants shall park their vehicles in their assigned carport spaces so that unassigned Association Property parking spaces are available primarily for guest parking. No parking space may be converted into any use that would prevent its use as a parking space. The Board may adopt Rules regulating parking in the unassigned spaces, including regulations that prohibit occupants from parking in all or parts of these areas, so that the spaces are available exclusively for guest parking. The Rules may not prohibIt the use of unassigned parking spaces by agents
of the Continuum or the Transitional Housing Operators while performing services related to the ownership of the Transitional Housing Condominiums or the support services authorized, under Section 3.1.


03/16/15

I am updating this topic because there seems to a general interest in this problem still. I have been so focused on the fire safety issues, but of course illegal renting and illegal parking continues to go on and on here on Captain Nurse Circle. I am assuming it is rampant in other areas of Meadow Park too. The HOA has a lot of power to enforce our rules. It is a governing body that legally can cite and fine these people who are disobeying our CC&Rs…

I am here to state that all of the problems continue! I have blogged about all of them before  and done whatever I could to inform the HOA and other enforcement agencies. Those agencies like Hello Housing have been given full authority by the City of Novato to seek legal action against those Owners who are renting their Meadow Park homes out for profit.. Illegal renting has not stopped!! The buses are still taking those developmentally disabled people back and forth all the time to their work places. The Owners who are using their home as a “licensed foster care for up to 8” are still doing it… There are people who are renting rooms to friends and foreign exchange students.. All of this is being allowed by the HOA!  It is well-known that these problems persist.

Illegal parking by trucks and campers and giving some people special privileges to ignore our parking rules continue on Captain Nurse Circle. I witness it all the time. It has not stopped! The HOA has allowed this illegal parking activity to go on and on, so these people think it is OK to ignore rules and be the “special people” who live here…. The HOA management think they can do anything they want to ignore our rules. There has not been any election to vote on a rules change… Thus the current HOA management needs to be fired so a new group of law-abiding Owners and managers can be put into place….

What a concept!! Let’s clean house and get things back into reality.. We are not living a real life here on Captain Nurse Circle.. These bad Owners do not deserve this special treatment, whether it is illegal renting or parking.. They are not special at all. They are just law breakers!

Meadow Park Community Blog Lives On!

I have decided to let the domain name meadowparkcommunityblog.com go..I can do this blog for free here at this address on wordpress: http://www.meadowparkcommunityblog.wordpress.com. Thank You WordPress!

SO: MEADOW PARK COMMUNITY BLOG LIVES ON!

It is time for the Meadow Park HOA Board of Directors to grow up and deal with the real important issues as I have… It is time for the Meadow Park HOA to have the governing documents on their official website. But even if they do not ever deal with reality, I always do and that is why those very important governing docuemnts will always be right here…

After one entire year of online blogging here on WordPress about Meadow Park: I  do see some positive changes occurring..

There has been some good intervention with the Novato Fire Protection District… Not enough though! The Vegetation Management and Fuel Modification Plan, Phase One has not been utilized to the extent it was intended…Sad to say, Captain Nurse Circle (Wood Glen) remains as a neighborhood in Meadow Park without fire safe landscaping, labels on our locked fire extinguisher cabinets, and repaired fire sprinkler systems…….This puts our neighborhood at risk for a serious fire emergency, especially in this drought time… I have said this numerous times though.. This is still the current status…

There is legal action being done about the illegal renting in Meadow Park.. This is a wonderful change……

I have been able to achieve an almost unheard of and nearly impossible feat: having our fire sprinkler systems tested and inspected for a five year certification, and paid for through HOA monies…..THE PROPERTY MANAGEMENT CONSTANTLY SAYS, “THIS IS THE HOME OWNER’S RESPONSIBLITY”. WELL YOU STUPID PROPERTY MANAGEMENT COMPANY, IT IS OUR MONEY THAT IS PAYING FOR IT… IT IS OUR MONEY THAT PAYS FOR YOUR RIDICULOUS AND CORRUPTED SERVICE TOO…

I am still awaiting for the repairs though… My fire sprinkler system was tested on February 9, and I still have not had the repairs done.  I hope this happens within the next few weeks…I want my 5 year certification report for my records… This is a state law…I am following up on that today… And if I receive any good news about it, I will post here….

Three Valid Work Orders Snubbed by Wakefield Sharp: The Hired Help needs Firing!!

I thought I would give the hired management help one more chance to prove that they are worth our money. However, I  still consider them “fired help”…

(1) I sent them a work order on 04-03-15 when the sprinklers were left on here on Captain Nurse Circle for over 9 hours and they never responded to it! I want to make sure that we Owners are not held responsible for this very big water bill that was totally Jensen’s fault…

And still we have no irrigation schedule here on Captain Nurse Circle. I am performing my Owner’s responsibility by maintaining my exclusive use common area landscaping. I water the vegetation there myself. I do not see any other Owner doing this though. I am the only one ….

According to CC&R 4.2, all owners are responsible to maintain these landscaped areas:

4.2 Owners Landscaping Obligations. Each Owner shall maintain the landscaping within any Exclusive Use Common Area patio appurtenant to the Owner’s Condominium in a healthy and weed-free condition and shall be responsible for the periodic pruning of any trees and the removal of any diseased or overgrown trees or any trees with root systems that are damaging any
Common Area or Association Property improvement.

(2) I asked them via a valid work order to have our fire extinguisher cabinets labeled here on Captain Nurse Circle and they said to “do it yourself.”

“The Board of Directors for Meadow Park has considered the cost and currently
allows homeowners interested in replacing stickers on fire extinguisher
boxes to do so themselves.”

This Board of Directors wants us to replace stickers? What stickers? There are no stickers to replace…That is the problem.. The stickers were never there in the first place. I do not have any stickers!! What a bunch of  stupid freaks these people are…These fire extinguisher cabinets were installed without proper labeling…Yet all of the other fire extinguisher cabinets in Meadow Park have this labeling! That is unfair treatment and puts our neighborhood at a higher risk for a fire emergency because people may panic when they do not know how to get that fire extinguisher out of the locked cabinet!! And they are trying to make me responsible for labeling these cabinets!


(3) I asked them to remove all the paperbark trees and eucalyptus trees here on Captain Nurse Circle and they referred me again to Fire Marshal Bill Tyler, who has recently said that there is “nothing wrong” with the vegetation here and Bill Tyler calls the paperbark trees “pepper trees”.

Ms. Angle,

Our office would like to refer you to Battalion Chief Bill Tyler’s March 17,
2015 e-mail:

“The existing condition of the landscape is substantially in compliance with
the existing approved vegetation management plan, given this time of the
year.”

We would also like to inform you that we are working closely with the
current landscape contractor and Novato Fire Department to ensure that
Meadow Park is properly maintained throughout the entire year.

This is the type of so-called “management” we have here in Meadow Park. They, (Wakefield Sharp) refer to a Fire Marshal who is not doing his job… This guy, Fire Marshal Bill Tyler from Novato Fire Protection District, is calling the paperbark bottle brush trees (which are all over the landscape here on Captain Nurse Circle) pepper trees!

What a scam artist! He just calls them pepper trees and shrugs it all off. He should be fired for doing such a rotten job of “protecting us” against a fire hazard…It feels like the Novato Fire Protection District is only trying to protect the fires, not the people…More fires mean they have a reason to exist. High fire hazards means fire fighters have jobs to fight fires…Maybe someone from a different industry needs to be in charge of this situation…Someone that does not have a reason to keep a landscape in a high fire hazard condition… 

This documentation is all I need to go further with a lawsuit against the Novato Fire Protection District, Wakefield Sharp, The City of Novato, and the Meadow Park HOA.

They will be hearing from my attorney very soon and this legal matter is now being escalated to the Marin County Courts… This prohibited vegetation was planted over 10 years ago without any regards to our Vegetation Management and Fuel Modification Plan, Phase One.

 

These people continue to act like this Plan does not exist! They seem to like the fact that Captain Nurse Circle remains at a high fire hazard risk… They certainly are not doing anything right to decrease the high fire hazard risk we all face as Owners here on Captain Nurse Circle…They seem to want us to have a fire hazard… Is that what is really going on? Maybe they should call themselves “Novato Anti-Fire District”…Maybe that is what we really need here in Novato…

One Tree Removed, Many To Go…

I looked out side in my back area early this morning and saw that the tree I recently complained about had been removed:

 

Paperbark tree behind my home-very high fire hazard and invasive

Hello,

I am reporting that the tree I emailed you about is now removed… But I am not the one to be responsible here to report every infraction regarding our Meadow Park Vegetation Management and Fuel Modification Plan, Phase 1.

There are plenty of paid people who are supposed to be doing a walk around Captain Nurse Circle WITH OUR LOT MAP and making notes regarding the infractions..I am not that person- no one is paying me anything…What a scam this whole thing is…

This proves that my initial complaint was never dealt with appropriately…There are several infractions that need to be dealt with…

I want people to start doing the jobs that they are getting paid to do… 

 

Is that too much to ask?  Am I being unreasonable here? If I was the supervisor of this charade, I would fire everyone involved and start completely over with real and responsible people

My monies are being wasted on nonessential things like “approved vegetation to cover up the train noise”…Why should my HOA assessments be used for that? I do not have any train noise here on Captain Nurse Circle…

Do your job, board of directors or you will be in a courtroom and not in a mediation… This is a serious health and safety issue that you are continuing to ignore as a “legal matter”. You better open up quick or it is all going to snow ball on you!

New Landscape Contracter Visible Today on Captain Nurse Circle: Jensen

I guess the board did vote out the Cagwin & Dorward landscape maintenance at the January meeting! The only reason I am saying this is because I just saw a new landscape maintenance truck here on Captain Nurse Circle. This truck has a red logo and says Jensen Landscape. And I checked back to the December executive meeting Agendas and sure enough, Jensen was one of those being considered.

Landscape contract board meetings Dec2014

Landscape contract board meetings December 2014

Now, I am sure these new landscapers know nothing about our landscape maintenance rules or our Vegetation Management and Fuel Modification Plan, so I am making sure that the Novato Fire Marshal is aware that there is a new landscape maintenance company contracted with our HOA…The meetings that were held last year with Cagwin & Dorward led nowhere..

I am making sure that our fire enforcement agency is well aware of this important change in order that their ensuing investigation continues undaunted. There needs to be another meeting held obviously to make sure that all involved are following these rules…

Meadow Park’s Journey to Becoming a Fire Safe Community: A Recap…

Who is really even concerned these days about a major fire here in Marin County? I see very little being done about this problem.. Yet the fire safety professionals all agree that a major fire hazard is just waiting to happen here in this county…. I am not going to let our community be one of those statistics though.. If those other communities in Marin County are letting it go and taking chances, then so be it… I am not one to sit by and let things happen.. I know that in this spiritually set up world, disasters are meant to happen in a set up way…But that does not mean you are powerless to make it stop happening. I am very powerful to make things go the right way…

I am making sure that all the fire safety measures are being done properly and to the law.. I am the only one who is doing this in my community. But maybe there is a reason for that… I am not stopping..Others probably would stop and give up.. but not me! I am making sure that it is well-known that we are at risk for this major fire to occur.. Therefore, I am blogging what is now happening to change our fire risk here. We are not going to have a fire disaster in our community.

I blog and notify the appropriate professionals. I follow-up and make sure that things are happening in a timely manner. I am focusing on this because I want my home to be safe and secure for me and my family… And of course other people who live here will benefit because of my actions…

(1) I made a follow-up complaint to the Novato Fire Marshal last week because it was over 6 months ago that my initial complaint was made and nothing was done about it by the HOA… The Fire Marshal acknowledged this and reassigned the complaint for investigation. The complaint concerns the fact that the HOA is not following the Meadow Park Vegetation Management and Fuel Modification Plan, Phase 1. My email was sent to all those who needed to know this… I am not hiding anything. I want them to make sure the HOA notifies all Owners in writing about this Plan!

(2) Included in the email was a complaint that our fire extinguisher cabinets remain unlabeled here on Captain Nurse Circle. The Novato Fire Marshal and Novato Fire Protection District had recommended that these be labeled. All of the other neighborhoods in Meadow Park have labels except those on Captain Nurse Circle. This discrepancy needs to be addressed ASAP. It is not OK to let this detail be pushed aside again. These cabinets have been unmarked for 10 years!

(3) I made a follow-up email to Nate at Exxell Fire Systems yesterday to see how the fire sprinkler system inspections are going. I specifically asked when my fire sprinkler system would be repaired and when I would receive my report.. I was told that they plan to have everything inspected by March 20 and submit the findings to the HOA. At that point I felt I needed to let Nate know that it would be helpful to have their findings submitted at the next board meeting on March 17.. He was very happy to know about this: “Wow, thank you very much for that information. We’ll do our best” was his response.  Otherwise, it could be 2 months before the board meets again (in May) to approve the repairs needed…That is not good!

The HOA system is slow and cumbersome these days.. And waking this HOA up to what is really important is what I am here to do. I am here to make them accountable for our safety and well-being…My universal healing is helping too..

A Disgusting Result of A Formal Complaint Persists. I Sent an EMAIL…

Update: 09/28/15

I am just posting an update to this whole sham follow-up of a formal complaint that I made last year… Nothing was ever done for me as requested… The lot by lot inspection was never completed… The high fire hazard, prohibited trees remain on my street… There was no real follow-up by he Novato Fire Protection District, even though they were the ones that signed off our Vegetation Management and Fuel Modification Plan many years ago… This was apparently done to get things moved along and not a real and valid interest in making our community safe form a major fire hazard… If things had been done the right way, these trees would not still be here… And they are as of this date… I hold the City of Novato and Novato Fire Protection District accountable and totally responsible for this extreme neglect in ensuring our community is as fire safe as humanly possible…

Original Post From Yesterday:

I cannot keep going like this. I have to make it clear one more time! I have so many people looking at my blog now from all over the world.. They are astonished at what I have accomplished so far.. YET, THE MOST IMPORTANT THING STILL HAS NOT OCCURRED!

I am still at a high fire hazard risk here on Captain Nurse Circle. That is because the HOA management DID NOT DO ANYTHING RIGHT about the formal complaint I made against them, and the Novato Fire Protection District did not do anything to enforce it..

So, here is my email.. I know how interesting it is for people to read reality these days. This is the most real you can get:

subject: High fire hazard vegetation problem on Captain Nurse Circle
mailed-by: gmail.com
Hello:
I emailing all of you because I am not happy with the results of my complaint from August 2014.

I am making this clear, that a lot by lot inspection of high fire hazard vegetation was never done as requested by the Novato Fire Marshal. There is still numerous violations of the Meadow Park Vegetation Management and Fuel Modification Plan, Phase One. I am attaching just one picture showing evidence that this complaint was ignored and never dealt with properly…This tree is located behind my building. Look how close it is to the structure. It is not my job to do this inspection, but I am not going to live under the stress of having these bad trees around me and my home…Therefore I am making it very clear one more time…

 

I am making another complaint and requesting that the Novato Fire Protection District follow-up and ensure that the Plan is being adhered to. There has not been anything done here on Captain Nurse Circle..These very bad high fire hazard non-native trees were all planted long ago without our knowledge or permission… They simply need to be removed, not just trimmed….

And I see now the HOA is talking about planting more vegetation in other parts of the community to “combat the SMART train noise”. What about our Plan? What about Captain Nurse Circle? There has not been any discussion of this at any open board meeting. Clark Blasdell kindly handed me this Plan because he cared and wanted our community to safe. Clark, that still has not happened…I cannot break through this denial and non-caring attitude that persists in this HOA…

 

This is a disgusting example of COMPLETE AND TOTAL DISREGARD FOR AUTHORITY HERE IN NOVATO! I am thoroughly dismayed at how poorly the Meadow Park HOA management dealt with the complaint and the follow up..There has not been any communication to the Owners about this.. not one word.. My website remains the only source for this information…They are purposely withholding all of this..

 

It is not  a safe or legal way to run an HOA.. The Owners are responsible to know about this Plan and adhere to it. This is not a topic that is to be discussed in a private setting. It needs to be out in the open.. The only way that will happen is by legal enforcement… There has to be enforcement ! Otherwise the HOA management just ignores…

 

Therefore,  I am notifying all involved that this is the result and I am still at a high fire hazard risk  here on Captain Nurse Circle because nothing was ever done right, from the beginning of our community or from last August….The wrongs keep going on and on….

 

Also, the fire extinguisher cabinets were never labeled here on Captain Nurse Circle even though the Fire Marshal recommended it.. That is another problem… These HOA management people are not doing their jobs… I want action and results this time..or a lawsuit is going to happen people, and I mean it…A judge will have no problem agreeing with me…
