A shooting at a Waffle House left an 18-year-old dead and two minors injured early Saturday morning, police said.

Police received a report of the shooting at the Gonzales, Louisiana restaurant just after midnight, the Gonzales Police Department wrote in a Facebook post. When they arrived at the scene, they found two victims in the parking lot with gunshot wounds.

One of the victims, 18-year-old Willie Bridges, was taken to Notre-Dame du Lac de l’Ascension Hospital where he later died of his injuries, police said.

Another victim was taken to a hospital near Baton Rouge in stable condition, while a third arrived later at a local hospital in critical condition, police said. The authorities did not reveal their identity since they are minors.

Many details about the fatal incident, including the events leading up to it or whether the shooting was random, remained unknown as of Saturday afternoon. The Gonzales Police Department also did not confirm whether it had identified the shooter.

Ami Clouatre, a police spokesman, told the local newspaper the lawyer that none of the victims appeared to be Waffle House employees and that investigators were working to determine whether or not they entered the restaurant before they were shot.

Employees told the newspaper they hadn’t seen anything since the shooting happened outside. The restaurant reopened at 6 a.m. The incident is still under investigation by local police, who have urged anyone with information to call (225) 647-9583.

In a statement to Newsweek, a Waffle House spokesperson wrote that the company is cooperating with law enforcement during its investigation.

“At this time, we understand that none of our employees working at the time were injured in the incident. We also understand that the incident occurred in an area between an alley and nearby local hotel parking and our restaurant,” the statement said.

Chain restaurant shootings happen surprisingly often in the United States. In April, several teenagers were gunned down outside a Waffle House in downtown Atlanta after a fight.

Meanwhile, a shooting at a Chili’s restaurant earlier this month in Rocky Mount, North Carolina left a woman dead and a 15-year-old employee injured after the victim and the alleged shooter fought at the bar .

Late last month, a customer at a Jack in the Box in Houston, Texas allegedly shot an employee after being told that an extra dip would incur a surcharge.

Newsweek contacted the Gonzales Police Department for comment.

In the months since their split was announced, Katie Maloney-Schwartz and Tom Schwartz have continued to live together. As Katie explained in an Instagram Story last month, “I don’t have a [new] place of residence for the moment. However, a recent update indicates that this is no longer the case.

“Almost the entire ground floor is packed!” Katie captioned an Instagram Story video from May 18 showing several boxes all around the first floor of the house.

In March, Katie opened her podcast, Youyou will love me, about what it was like to continue residing with Tom as they navigated the end of their marriage. “It was the best scenario I could imagine or hope for,” she said at the time. “We are still determining the next steps. I don’t think we’ll live together forever.

Although Katie has yet to reveal anything about her next destination, she did take a look at a new piece of furniture she bought in April for her new digs. While showing off a “beautiful and amazing couch,” she explained that until she finds her next home, the piece “was going to be hanging around. [the] front room” of her and Tom’s house.

Marrickville Laneway House by Studio Weave Architects https://hondenhok.com/marrickville-laneway-house-by-studio-weave-architects/ Wed, 18 May 2022 00:19:48 +0000 https://hondenhok.com/marrickville-laneway-house-by-studio-weave-architects/ Throughout the interior suburb of Sydney, semi-detached cottages are prolific.

Throughout the interior suburb of Sydney, semi-detached cottages are prolific. As the terraced house lost popularity in the early 20th century, the “semi” took its place as a source of inexpensive housing. Its modest design and simple planning allowed speculative builders and family investors to enter the market. Semi-trailers were a way to accommodate a growing population, but because they were primarily a mechanism for economic growth, they weren’t very well designed.

Today, the semi is a priority for many young families who want to live in Sydney’s inner suburbs – for whom anything larger proves extremely unaffordable. After purchasing a tractor trailer, the task is to take a 60 to 100 year old building that was originally considered a commodity and turn it into something with the amenities and facilities of modern homes. Budding renovators find it difficult to access light, air and perspective. They then face the challenges of maintaining “streetscape character” and “neighborhood amenities” while navigating their local council checks. Obviously, transforming a semi is difficult and often requires creative solutions.

Marrickville House by Studio Weave Architects is an example of this transformation done right. It demonstrates how a skilled architect can balance all of these concerns and synthesize them into a deceptively simple yet elegantly crafted box nestled in the neighborhood.

The planning of this house is clear and logical. The front rooms and the original hallway of the semi are kept as bedrooms, bathroom and laundry room. To the rear is a new open-plan living room, above which is a third bedroom, study and bathroom. It is a simple plan that fits perfectly on the site. Look closely, however, and you’ll discover several thoughtful design details that make these spaces wonderful.

Between the old rooms and the new ones, a thin skylight was created to accompany the new staircase. This space is lit from above with a large window and allows light to cascade down into the living areas. Below the stairs, a bench envelops the half-buried living room, next to which a planter accommodates a built-in bench. Both of these places are places to perch and have conversations – or hide in a private nook. They hold up the edges of the room and expand the space, making an otherwise small room feel much larger.

Across the room, the northeast corner folds and slides to reveal the garden. This intricate door joinery feat removes a corner column and allows diagonal views out. Such an openness is deceptively difficult to pull off but feels essential to this room and draws you to the outdoor space. The surrounding garden, although small, encircles the house and serves as a backdrop for the kitchen and living areas.

Upstairs, highlighted windows envelop all the rooms. The glass rests on thin steel brackets, perpendicular to the exposed metal of the skillion roof. This shape recalls the iconic 1990s rural homes of Glenn Murcutt and Peter Stutchbury, evoking a charm that takes your mind away from the suburbs.

The outlook for this higher level is carefully controlled. Functional solid wood panels on the north facade prevent overhanging neighbors’ property and provide privacy for the upstairs bedroom. At the back, a fixed bay window frames a view of the large tree that dominates the backyard.

Bringing all of these details together is a carefully considered palette of materials. The floating box that is the addition is made almost entirely from recycled Australian hardwood. This home‘s “hero material” adorns its walls, doors, windows, floors and millwork, bringing rich warmth to any room. The marks and scars on the wooden planks are celebrated – and reflect the romantic qualities of the old homes they now stand among.

Such heavy use of recycled wood also means that fewer raw materials were used in the construction of this home, and perfectly good hardwood was diverted from the landfill. In addition, the design leaves room for a rainwater cistern in the side passage and eliminates air conditioning in favor of natural cross ventilation.

This small extension jewelry box is a testament to the value of good design when renovating a tractor-trailer. Thoughtful consideration and trust in the architect has led to a family home that is great to be in. Beautiful materials, neat openings and creative pockets of space combine to elevate a humble semi into something so much more.

How to take care of your home in Houston https://hondenhok.com/how-to-take-care-of-your-home-in-houston/ Mon, 16 May 2022 09:00:00 +0000 https://hondenhok.com/how-to-take-care-of-your-home-in-houston/ Recently, we gave you some tips on buying a new home in Houston.

Recently, we gave you some tips on buying a new home in Houston. Thinking about it a bit more, we realized that this list wasn’t quite complete. Yes, all the right information, but we know from experience that buying a home isn’t even half the battle. Once you’ve landed in your new home, what happens?

For new owners, this can be intimidating. There’s so much to think about and love about having a baby, there’s no owner’s manual. You are completely alone here. So let us help you with a few things to consider after buying your home.

Pay for good insurance.

Insurance is nothing more than peace of mind…until you need it. Then it’s a safety net. Know what your coverage entails. For example, some covers protect you from leaks under your foundation. Some don’t. Check it carefully and seek help from an expert. It can mean the difference between a $9,000 roof replacement and a $250 deductible for the same problem. And don’t skimp. Buy more than you think you need. Trust us on this one.

Prepare for disasters.

Having good insurance will help a bit, but even if you’re not in Houston’s official “flood plain”, buy flood insurance. As a friend told us, “After flooding without it, I would buy flood insurance now even if I lived in the middle of a desert.” Nothing is more catastrophic than flood waters when it comes to damaging a home. And, in Houston, it can happen at any time. Although you should have a checklist for what to do when it comes to preparing your home for a hurricane, keep in mind that water generally does much more damage than wind.

Get a home warranty plan and tailor it to your needs.

There are mixed feelings in the original world about home warranties. Some consider them a waste of money, but for new owners they can be a lifesaver. But make sure they match what you need. If you have new and guaranteed appliances, you do not need coverage for them. But, an older home or pool may need a little more than normal. Shop around for the best prices and plans that suit your home.

Learn about your neighborhood (and your neighbors).

Obviously, this should be on your home buying checklist, but even if you’ve already purchased, it’s worth knowing the ins and outs of your range hood. Get to know the act restrictions (if you have any). In Houston, they can make the difference between your choice of house color, whether or not you can have solar panels, where to store your trash cans, and whether you can have a boat. Act restrictions can run the gamut from non-existent to fucking dictatorship. And get involved when possible so you know what to expect from those responsible. Not all homeowners associations are filled with weird little trolls peering over your fence looking for infractions, but good to know if they are.

And while we’re on the subject, get to know your neighbors. The earliest would be best. Come by and introduce yourself. You don’t have to like everyone who lives near you, but when your electricity is out and your neighbor’s isn’t, they’ll be much more likely to lend you an outlet to run your refrigerator if you are on good terms.

Budget for repairs, even for a new home, and don’t delay them if you can avoid them.

When real estate agents discuss costs with you, they rarely include anything other than your mortgage. They can talk to you about taxes and insurance, but no one tells you how much it costs to own a home beyond that monthly payment to your mortgage company. Maintaining a house in good working order is complicated. Even new homes have problems with them. Older people are even more prone to problems. And much, if not all, will not be covered by insurance or home warranties.

When budgeting for your home, assume repairs are about half of what you spend on your mortgage, taxes, and insurance. It may seem like a lot, but when your AC unit shuts down in August, you’ll be glad you were prepared. And when repairs arrive, get them done as soon as possible. They tend to build up and steamroll you. That one piece of siding that needs painting could hide wood rot that could suddenly bloat your problems beyond what you can handle.

This could be your home after a hurricane. Be ready!

Remember that the costs will increase every year and will always be higher than you think.

Another thing no one tells you is that your mortgage may be fixed (hopefully you don’t have an adjustable rate mortgage), but your taxes and insurance certainly are. not. And the older your home gets, the more repairs will be needed. It should also be noted that if you are paying an escrow, it will be based on the amount you paid for taxes and insurance. Last year. If the value of your property increases, not only will your taxes and insurance be higher, but you will likely have a shortage in your escrow as costs have increased and you will receive a bill from the mortgage company on top of everything else. . Just be ready.

Have a good list of reliable repair services (if you don’t have one, ask around).

An experienced homeowner always has a list of plumbers, electricians and other home repair experts at his disposal. You need people you can trust to handle things for you as they arise. Sometimes it’s simple, like replacing an electrical outlet or unclogging a toilet. Other times, you’ll need an experienced HVAC technician to diagnose a more serious problem. If you don’t know anyone who does this, check with your neighbors or post requests online. It’s a great way to find competent help.

Oh, and if you’re so inclined, watch YouTube videos on how to handle minor repairs yourself. Get yourself a good set of tools and get to work. But, don’t electrocute yourself in the process.

When evaluating your new home, check five critical areas.

These are the most expensive and complicated problems to fix and if you’ve owned your home for more than five or six years, you’re bound to run into one, so be prepared.

Foundation
Keep an eye out for cracks in the wall that have just emerged or closet doors that suddenly don’t close as well as they used to. If you suspect a foundation problem, address it immediately.

Roof
Hail damage can often lead to leaks. Sometimes you won’t even know you have a leak until your ceiling collapses. After a storm, have your roof inspected and plan for a replacement every 15 to 20 years.

HVAC
Heaters are important, but when your a/c breaks down in the summer…ugh. It’s also likely your biggest utility bill, so the more efficient and functional your system is, the better.

Electric
Nothing will ruin your dream home better than an electrical fire, not to mention the danger to you and your family. Have those wires and your electrical box inspected.

Plumbing
Old pipes often start out with small pinhole leaks that you may not even notice. But, eventually, they can burst and create a huge mess. Transplanting is annoying and expensive, but often necessary at some point in the life of your home.

Bonus: termites
If you have purchased a wood frame home, especially one with a pillar and beam foundation, an annual termite inspection is a must. You don’t need the beams holding up your house to suddenly turn to sawdust.

Don’t be too ambitious from the start.

Moving from an apartment to a house often means you’ll need more and newer furniture. You might also want to put a fresh coat of paint on your bedroom or add some soundproofing for your new recording studio (is that just us?). Whatever you want, take it easy. Remember that there are a lot of expenses that come with owning a home. Set reasonable goals and budget accordingly for the first year or two. Once you’re in a better place knowing where the costs are, you’ll have plenty of time to get that Eddie Van Halen mural on your office wall or put an entire room of small furniture for your dogs. This is your house, go crazy!

Your garden is also part of your home.

Yard maintenance is something that is often overlooked, but it is important not only for the beauty of your home, but also to protect your home from damage during a storm. The trees must be checked and pruned each year by a professional. Nobody wants a tree rotting from the inside to fall on their house during a hurricane, but it does happen. You’ll also want to do things like make sure your beds aren’t above the foundation line around your house. If so, water can seep between the foundation and your home, get under your floors and create a huge mess. The exterior of your home is more than the structure, it’s your whole garden!

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

House Democrats appear to disagree on a bipartisan measure introduced earlier this year that would provide investments in local police departments across America to ensure officers have the resources they need to keep themselves and their communities safe. .

Led by New Jersey Democratic Rep. Josh Gottheimer and Florida Republican Rep. John Rutherford, the Invest to Protect Act would provide small police departments with several investments in safety, de-escalation and domestic violence response training. . The bill would also include investments in body cameras, mental health resources and recruiting efforts.

BIDEN URGES LOCAL OFFICIALS TO HIRE MORE POLICE USING US CRIME RESCUE PLAN FUNDS

The House Problem Solvers Caucus and several organizations that offer support to law enforcement, including the National Fraternal Order of Police and the National Association of Police Organizations, endorse the measure. There is no scheduled vote in the House.

Speaking to Fox News Digital, Gottheimer said the measure is “to invest in local law enforcement for departments with 200 or fewer people” and would help departments that are struggling to afford equipment, training and other resources.

“I believe it is extremely important that we invest in law enforcement, we get their backs like they get ours every day and make sure we enforce the laws on the books and protect our communities,” Gottheimer said.

Asked if he thought the Democratic leadership had blocked the bill’s progress for fear of backlash from progressive Democrats, Gottheimer reiterated the bipartisan energy behind the legislation. He said talking about defunding police departments among progressives “makes no sense” to him.

“I would leave it to my executives to comment on why they haven’t brought this up yet,” Gottheimer said. “We want to do some common sense work. You have Democrats and Republicans who want action. There’s absolutely no reason why we shouldn’t talk about this. This will pass. Our country will be more for it. safe.

“We need to fund, not defund, local law enforcement,” he added. “Cutting the bone only weakens the profession and pushes the good people away. Any talk of doing anything other than investing in law enforcement makes no sense to me. So we need to invest .”

Nevada Democratic Rep. Susie Lee, a co-sponsor of the bill, also spoke with Fox News Digital about the measure and pledged to continue to press the Democratic leadership in the House for the measure to be passed. presented to a committee and then to the full House for a vote.

“It really levels the playing field so that smaller departments have the opportunity to get these types of grants to help them train and get the resources they need,” Lee said.

Echoing Gottheimer, Lee suggested that the Democratic leadership in the House could explain why the bill did not pass.

“This is a bipartisan, bicameral bill. [with] 55 co-sponsors — 17 Republicans — and we’re going to continue to pressure our leaders to make sure we get a vote on this bill,” Lee said. “That’s not to say we haven’t invested in policing. … It’s just to make sure that we can provide those kinds of resources to those smaller departments.

“I can’t speak for the leadership,” she added. “All I know is that when you have a bill like this that has broad support, then you know you’re going to get support from across the aisle. … I continue to pressure our leaders to find solutions to the problems in this country that require us to work together with the other side of the aisle.”

REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP UNVEILS “BACK TO BLUE” LEGISLATIVE PRIORITIES IN ANTICIPATION OF MEDIUM-TERM RED WAVE

Lee said she’s written “a lot of letters” and spoken to House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., about putting the measure to committee so it can receive a House vote. . So far, it seems she has been unlucky.

Several of the legislation’s co-sponsors told Fox News Digital that investments in police departments across the country are of paramount importance.

“I don’t support the idea of ​​’defunding’ the police,” said Rep. Dan Kildee, D-Mich. “All Americans have the right to be safe in their community. In Congress, I have worked to support local law enforcement to ensure they have the resources to hire and train police officers. The Invest to Protect Act would help provide small police departments with fewer than 200 officers the resources they need to keep our neighborhoods safe.”

Rep. Dan Kildee, D-Mich., speaks during a press conference outside the Capitol on March 31, 2022.

Rep. Dean Phillips, D-Minn., described the “remarkable occurrence” of bipartisanship among members of Congress in support of the bill and said that “investing to attract the best and brightest Americans to pursue the Law enforcement -⁠ training them, equipping them in a way that enables them to serve their communities with dignity, principle and integrity -⁠ is exactly what we should be doing.

“Performing starts with listening, and that’s what we do,” Phillips added. “Like many of my colleagues, I regularly run with the police. I visit my police chiefs. I listen to my community express their fears about rising crime. it’s time to invest, and “investing in protection,” by definition, means we expect a return. And the return is public safety for urban, suburban, and rural Americans.”

Rep. Salud Carbajal, D-California, said, “The Invest to Protect Act recognizes that our small police departments might not have the personnel to compete with those big city departments by creating a dedicated grant program for them, as well than cutting red tape to ensure our officers focus on their training and pace rather than paperwork.

“Our police departments need the funding and tools to recruit, train and retain high-quality officers, and I supported this bipartisan legislation in the House to ensure they get those resources.”

Echoing her colleagues’ support for the legislation, Rep. Chrissy Houlahan, D-Pa., said she is constantly reminded of the sacrifice officers make to keep American communities safe and urged House leaders to advance the measure.

“When I walk into my mother-in-law’s house, I see the triangular box of the American flag that draped the coffin of her father, chief of police in the Chicago area,” Houlahan recalled. “It is a reminder of the service of our brave law enforcement officers and the sacrifices they make to keep our communities safe. In return, it is our responsibility to ensure they have the resources to serve. That’s why I was proud to stand with so many Republicans and Democrats in support of the Invest to Protect Act.

“At a time when Washington can be so divided, it is heartening to see members from both sides of the aisle in both the House and the Senate uniting with one voice: We stand with our police,” said she added. “I join all of them in urging House leaders to put this legislation to a vote so we can help rural police departments and small police departments like those in my community better compete for resources and training. , enabling them to manage a growing public mental health crisis, the opioid epidemic and much more.”

Gottheimer and other co-sponsors of the House measure held a press conference earlier this week outside the Capitol, urging leaders to take action on the bill in an effort to better protect American communities.

A bipartisan supplement to the legislation was introduced in the Senate by Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, D-Nev., in March. This measure also received bipartisan support.

A Main Street reconstruction project in House Springs is nearing completion.

Jefferson County Director of Public Works Jason Jonas said crews from Kimes Contracting LLC in Hillsboro are weeks away from completing improvements on approximately 700 feet of Main Street from north of Church Street to East highway. MM. The project includes the installation of gutters to improve stormwater control, as well as new sidewalks, lighting and paving on parts of the road.

“All that’s left to do is street lighting,” Jonas said. “We are waiting for the poles to be delivered, around seven or eight poles. The conduit is already in place, so all they have to do is place the posts and connect them. There may be a minor flagging (to direct traffic away from work) but this will be done outside peak hours. »

Main Street connects Gravois Road and the highway. MM.

Jonas said major reconstruction work took place from January 31 to April 18, when the road was closed to through traffic.

During this phase, curbs and gutters and a storm water drainage system were put in place, along with sidewalks, on-street parking improvements and crosswalks at both ends.

“It’s a big project,” Jonas said. “I think it’s easy to forget how bad this street was. Because there was no storm water (control), the water collected on the street and penetrated below the surface and simply undermined the surface. With all the changes, this will never happen again.

However, Jonas said, reaction to the project hasn’t necessarily been entirely positive.

“For some people, a complete closure of a road project can cause hardship and heartburn, but it’s been closed for 11 weeks, and I think that’s really good,” he said. . “I’m proud that the contractor finished this part so quickly, especially considering the rain and even a few snowstorms we had during this period. »

However, the county has received complaints about the project, Jonas said.

“We took a few phone calls. One person had a very helpful recommendation on how we could make the detour more efficient, which we put into practice. Another didn’t like that we had to take a detour, but once I explained to him it would be weeks, not four or five months, he seemed content,” he said.

Jonas said he visited the site once and was told by a Kimes official not to drive in a certain portion because screws had been strewn along the road which could puncture a tire.

“I asked if they had accidentally dropped a box of screws, but I was told that someone had thrown them there and they had to clean them. Why, we don’t know,” said said Jonah.

“I know union representatives had asked Kimes if there were any union workers at work, but there were never any protests and no threats were made against the county or the contractor.”

Kimes was the lowest of six bidders for the project for $599,553, with 80% of the cost covered by federal funds and the remainder coming from the county’s share of a 1/2 cent scale sales tax. of the county for the improvement of roads and bridges.

On April 25, the Jefferson County Board approved a change order for the project, adding $15,960 to the total cost.

“We encountered basement problems. The road was quite rotten in places and the subsoil was soft, sticky ground that needed to be excavated,” Jonas said.

In 2015, she established “The Live Love Laugh Foundation”, whose programs and initiatives aim to de-stigmatize mental illness and raise awareness of the importance of mental health. Padukone has been touted as one of the most beloved and successful actresses in Indian cinema to date, and her achievements have made her an icon of recent times. Padukone is the first Indian to be signed as an Ambassador of the House by Louis Vuitton. After a strong collaborative relationship with the Maison, including an appearance in the pre-Fall 2020 campaign inspired by Nicolas Ghesquière’s novel, the award-winning actress begins an exciting new chapter in her journey with Louis Vuitton.

Against pure white and shaded blue backgrounds, the Dauphine is embodied by three internationally renowned actresses, each independently embodying a characteristic of the Dauphine woman. Deepika Padukone captures her free-spirited nature, ready to seize the day, Dauphine in hand. Oscar winner and long-time Maison ambassador Emma Stone nods to her timeless elegance, a companion that is both classic and contemporary; while Zhou Dongyu, pillar of contemporary Chinese cinema, turns to a sophisticated and strong woman, able to navigate the world as in the universe of Louis Vuitton.

The Traveling Wilburys arrived by accident one day in 1988. Five of the rock ‘n’ roll’s top singer-songwriters, George Harrison, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, Jeff Lynne and Roy Orbison, were all together in the recording studio. It was impossible not to create something, having all this talent in one place. Thus, they recorded “Handle With Care”.

This song sparked something. The five artists decided they had to make an album. They chose to meet at their fellow musician, Dave Stewart’s home in Los Angeles to record The Traveling Wilburys Vol. 1.

The iron Throne prequel Dragon House recently released their new trailer, and let’s be honest, it looks awesome. The trailer gives a small preview of what’s to come in House of The Dragon Season 1, and there are plenty of questions burning in the back of our heads. These questions will eventually be answered when the show arrives in August. In the meantime, let’s talk about some of those questions that were left unanswered in the trailer.

Why was there a Maester with Otto Hightower facing Daemon Targaryen?

house-of-the-dragon-teaser1

Those who have read Fire & Blood already know that Daemon and Otto don’t really agree. The scene depicted in the clip shows Daemon with a dragon egg, followed by Mysaria and his men. He is confronted by Otto, the Kingsguard and a Maester, presumably on behalf of King Viserys who did not want Daemon to give his young mistress a dragon egg. However, the presence of a Maester does not add up in this situation, especially when there is a possibility of a fight breaking out.

Dragon flying over King’s Landing: Sunfyre?

hotd teaser
In the very first shot that involves a dragon, we see a medium-sized dragon flying over King’s Landing. Slowing down the clip a bit shows the color of his scales, which glow golden yellow in the sunlight. That’s Sunfyre with Aegon II on its back?

Who are the characters that stray from Rhaenyra at the Dragonstone table?

hotd-teaser-2
In a clip that was teased by HBO just before the trailer was released, we see a seemingly tense Rhaenyra deep in thought at a familiar-looking table in Dragonstone, and four people walking away from her, including one appears to be his aunt Rhaenys Targaryen. The other 3 have black hair, and from the leaks we’ve seen on filming sites, we know that Rhaenyra’s children have black hair. Are these 3 his teenage sons? Or someone else?

What does the box presented at Harrenhal contain?

hotd3
There’s a shot with particular emphasis on a mysterious box being carried through the halls of Harrenhal. Judging by its appearance, the contents of the box must be really special. What’s in the box? Dragon eggs? Severed heads of enemies? A highly anticipated copy of Winds of Winter?

Who is in the sarcophagus during the funeral ceremony at Driftmark?

hotd4
In one of the moving scenes, we see a sarcophagus being lowered into the waters as part of Velaryon’s funeral ceremony. There’s no indication of who’s body is in the stone coffin, but we do see an angry Rhaenyra and a somewhat guilty Alicent at the end of this scene.

Who is knocked down by the Kingsguard?

hotd-teaser-3
There is a very short sequence where we see someone being dragged and thrown to the ground by the Kingsguard. Who is he? Judging by his hair, it looks like he’s either a Velaryon or a Targaryen, but his face isn’t very clear to be sure.

Daemon meets Caraxes?

hotd-caraxes
At the end of the trailer, Daemon is seen inspecting the floor of a blood-soaked cave. Then we see a dragon spitting fire and roaring at him. Is it Caraxes? The dim light from Daemon’s torch makes it hard to tell the color of his scales, but if we stop the scene and look at his wing, we see a reddish tint.

Big Daddy’s arrives at The Big Yellow House.

The owner of Summerland’s The Well, a home and garden store at 2350 Lillie Ave., rented the iconic Big Yellow House, 102 Pierpont Ave. Owner Shane Brown said the new location will be called Big Daddy’s, a chain with locations in Los Angeles and Texas.

“Summerland is becoming California’s design destination,” Brown told Noozhawk.

Big Daddy’s will showcase vintage artwork, rugs and furniture inside The Big Yellow House, a three-story Victorian building that for decades housed one of the world’s most popular breakfast and lunch restaurants. most popular in the region.

The Big Yellow House was built by HL William in 1884. The house was purchased in the early 1970s by John and June Young, who painted it yellow. Today, the house is white, but its majestic and mysterious charm remains.

The new location offers ample parking and excellent visibility, Brown said.

Brown has been busy with facilities at Hope Ranch and Ojai in recent days, but expects Big Daddy’s to open smoothly in about two weeks.

The furniture industry exploded during the COVID-19 pandemic, and Summerland became the focus. The pandemic has ushered in a return to an emphasis on home living and pleasant spaces.

“People appreciate how important it is to have a place and a home that you feel comfortable in,” Brown said. “People are realizing how nice it is to be able to come home to a special, unique property. They want it to be unique. They want it to be a home.”

As for The Well, business is booming and the company, which focuses on garden supplies, will celebrate a two-year anniversary in June.

“I want people to know how very grateful I am,” Brown said.

office space

Santa Barbara’s available office space has excess inventory, with about 90 spaces available and a vacancy rate above 9% for five consecutive quarters, according to Hayes Commercial Group. Seven years ago, Santa Barbara had 45 offices available.

Among the largest spaces available are the old Nordstrom building and the Ortega building at Paseo Nuevo. The mall is expected to begin marketing Nordstrom spaces, which will consist of remodeled floor plans for larger tenants, according to Hayes. The Ortega building has been marketed for over a year.

“Given the current low demand in the market, finding tenants for these buildings will likely take a long time,” Hayes reports.

In Goleta, however, the vacancy rate is below 5% for the first time since before the pandemic and is near an all-time low, according to Hayes. Most of the occupancy comes from new lease renewals, not new businesses.

In downtown Santa Barbara, the retail vacancy rate is 14.7% between the 400 and 1300 blocks of State Street.

“This ‘showcase vacancy’ has been in the double digits for four years, which has to be accepted now as the new normal,” according to Hayes.

The brewery’s total medal count is now eight after winning one bronze, three silver and two gold in previous World Beer Cup competitions, according to a press release.

Figueroa Mountain has also won 29 medals from the Great American Beer Festival, the country’s other top national competition, according to a press release.

“We couldn’t be more excited about these wins,” said Figueroa Mountain Brewmaster and Creative Director Kevin Ashford. “Ultimately, we brew our beer for our fans here in California. But being recognized by these global beer experts shows we’re doing something here.

Ashford accepted the award in Minneapolis with Jaime Dietenhofer, owner of Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co.

The World Beer Cup this year attracted 10,542 beers from 2,493 breweries in 57 countries. Mosaic Pale Ale won in the American-Style Pale Ale category, beating 159 other beers to be crowned the best pale ale in the world. Figuerosé competed against 147 other beers to win the silver prize.

The buffet is back in Santa Maria

The Santa Maria Golden Corral now offers its traditional self-service buffet.

The 11,000 square foot restaurant, located at 2104 S. Bradley Road, features a modern design with a stone fireplace, contemporary decor, comfortable and varied seating options, and an all-new buffet area with an improved cutout and tiled walls that look a lot like a residential kitchen, according to a press release.
