Old Saint Nick is coming to town this holiday season. He’s checking his list, and he’s going to be taking a trip around the world to deliver presents. With the help of modern technology we can now track Santa Claus as he makes his journey.
Google has a fun, interactive way to keep tabs on Kris Kringle. By typing “Santa Tracker” into the Google search box, you will be able to pull up the Santa Village. Once you’ve clicked on that you will have access to the Village, which has a new game for every day in December. On December 24 you’ll be able to help the village track Santa on his Christmas Eve trip.
Another popular tracker is the Official North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) Santa Tracker. This one is more realistic and high tech...
Colder weather is rolling in and we need to be ready. Winter is less than a month away and with freezing temperatures in the forecast, we must be prepared to drive to work in less than ideal conditions.
“Winter is coming,” says any Game of Thrones fan, and they aren’t lying.
Winter starts December 21 and lasts till March 20. This weather can be inconvenient and take a deadly turn if you aren’t prepared. AAA, a nationwide roadside assistance and insurance company, offers several recommendations for commuters driving in hazardous conditions.
AAA states the following on their website:
“Avoid driving while you’re fatigued. Make certain your tires are properly inflated. Keep your gas tank at least half full to avoid gas line freeze-up...
If you are out driving around near the holidays, you might have noticed an increase in DUI checkpoints. This is typical of any holiday where people drink more alcohol than usual. Officers know that drinking will increase around the holidays, which will lead to an increase in drunk drivers.
The goal of these DUI checkpoints is to reduce the amount of drunk drivers that are on the road. By doing this, officers can save hundreds of lives from being involved in a drunk driving accident. While checkpoints may slow down traffic, they help keeping everyone on the road safe.
Many people do not know that they are allowed to avoid DUI checkpoints, provided they do so without breaking any traffic laws...
This is a question that many people have. Most people have heard of it, and many have seen it on TV, but they still do not have a very good idea of what bail is. Even on TV, bail is often toned down or glossed over so that the show can focus on the story at hand. This is how so many people know about bail, but have no idea how it actually works.
Bail starts when a person is arrested. This is when a person is assigned their bail amount. Typically, the amount is determined by a judge reading off of a bail schedule. A bail schedule is just a list of every crime possible, and what the bail should be for each crime. Every county has its own unique bail schedule...
Fall is finally upon us. The warm, sometimes unbearably hot, days of summer are behind us as the days begin to shorten. The air becomes cooler, but not in an unpleasant way. The leaves on the trees begin to change their colors, and migrations begin. Fall is a magical time of the year and represents changing conditions. The state of California has a lot to offer its residents during this time of year, provided you know where to look.
• Eastern Sierra Nevada Hot Springs – The Eastern side of the Sierra Nevada’s along Highway 395 between Mammoth Lakes and Bridgeport offer beautiful fall colors and plenty of hot springs. However, finding the springs that are safe enough to dip into can be tricky, and often requires talking with the area locals to find the best, secluded spots...
As Californians, many of us know that the “Big One” could be just around the corner. We have to live in a constant state of preparedness. This means having plans for what to do in the event of an earthquake, and having supplies ready. The following is a list of supplies that every household should have stashed away in a safe place where everybody knows, just in case.
• 3 gallons of water per person. This should last each individual 3 days.
• A 3 day supply of non-perishable foods
• Baby food, diapers, and wipes if you have a baby
• Pet food and extra water if you have a pet
• A can opener
• Cups, utensils, and plates
• First aid kit
• Fire extinguisher
• Battery powered, or crank powered, radio and flashlight. Plus extra batteries.
• A whistle
• Portable phone charger
Everyone typically has some sort of daily routine that they follow, they get up, go to work, run errands, relax at the end of the day, and then do it all again the following day. Rarely is there ever any time to divert from that schedule. Even if there is time to spare, the person probably doesn’t have the funds to spare.
These are just a few of the reasons why the arrest of a loved one can be so problematic for people. Not only does it interrupt their daily schedule, it threatens their bank account as well. Most people do not have thousands of dollars just lying around to be spent on bail. It will take them months to come up with the thousands of dollars needed for the bail. They do not want to make their loved one’s sit in jail that long.
The arrest of a friend or family member de...
The only way to remain the best at something, is to continue to deal with it on a regular basis. As many adults can attest to, we lose a lot of the information we gain in school after we graduate. Our minds only hold on to the things we use regularly. So, if you want to work with someone who is the best at something, you need to find someone who not does that job for a living, but is still going to school to learn more.

Here in the United States of America, everyone has rights. We are a free country, and we all greatly appreciate that freedom. This is one of the reasons why no one likes getting arrested and put into a jail cell. This takes away a person’s freedom and ability to live their life while they are on trial. At this point, they are being punished for a crime that they haven’t been convicted for.
This is why everyone has the right to bail out of jail. Let Bail Bonds in San Francisco help you exercise that right. We will help you post bail with a bail bond. This will reduce the cost of the bail, and make it much more affordable for you.

Whenever you work with someone, you want to make sure that that person is honest and trustworthy. This becomes even more important when you are paying the person a lot of money. You do not want to waste your money on someone who is not honestly trying to help you.
When it comes to bailing a friend or family member out of jail, you want to find a bail agent that you can trust. While cheaper than paying for the bail yourself, bail bonds can still cost a lot of money.
