AAA: School’s Open – Drive Carefully

Posted on August 23, 2022 in 2022 Back To School Gift Guide

Tips & Suggestions for Drivers as Summer Ends, School Begins

As children return to school, AAA East Central has launched its annual School’s Open – Drive Carefully campaign. The campaign aims to encourage parents to talk about the importance of school zone safety with their children and teen drivers. It also advises motorists to take extra caution when traveling through school zones or near school buses.

“School zone speed limits, AAA School Safety Patrollers and crossing guards are in place to save lives,” said Terri Rae Anthony, safety advisor for AAA East Central. “Since children can move quickly and cross the road unexpectedly, it is important to obey speed limits and be ready to stop at a moment’s notice.”

Speed is a crucial factor in protecting the lives of students as they make their way to class. According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, a pedestrian struck by a vehicle traveling at 20 mph is about two-thirds less likely to be killed as compared to a pedestrian struck by a vehicle traveling at 30 mph. Moreover, nearly 1-in-5 children 14 and younger who die in traffic crashes are pedestrians.

In addition to slowing down, AAA offers the following advice for motorists to keep children safe as they navigate their way through school zones:

Ditch distractions. Research shows that glancing away from the road for just two seconds doubles the chances of crashing.
Stay alert. Don’t rush into and out of driveways. Expect pedestrians on the sidewalk, especially around schools and in neighborhoods. Mind vehicle blind spots, check for children on the sidewalk, in the driveway, and around the vehicle before slowly backing up.
Brake for buses. It may be tempting to drive around a stopped school bus, but not only is it dangerous – it is against the law.
Watch for bikes. Children on bicycles are often unpredictable, so expect the unexpected. Motorists should slow down and allow at least three feet of passing distance between their vehicle and bicyclists.
Plan ahead. Leave early and build in extra time for congestion. If possible, modify routes to avoid school zones.
Look for AAA School Safety Patrollers. With more than 600,000 AAA School Safety Patrollers at 31,000 schools across the country, patrollers are a sure sign that school zone is approaching.

About the AAA’s School’s Open – Drive Carefully campaign:
The campaign was launched nationally in 1946 to help reduce the number of school-related pedestrian injuries and fatalities. The campaign kicks off each fall and continues throughout the school year to remind motorists to watch out for children as they travel to and from school.

Celebrating the Pop Art Movement,  Music and Artistic Vision:
Limited Engagement – May 7th through May 15th, 2022

With paintings on exhibition in hundreds of museums and galleries worldwide, Peter Max and his vibrant colors have become part of the fabric of contemporary culture. Max has been successively called a Pop Icon, Neo Fauvist, Abstract Expressionist, and the United States “Painter Laureate.”
The artist has had the distinct honor of painting the last seven Presidents of the United States and the world’s best loved celebrities, among them the young sensation Taylor Swift and the amazing talents of “The Voice”

The artist has had the distinct honor of being named the Official Artist of the Grammys,  Super Bowl, World Cup Soccer
and the Official Artist of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.  An ardent Environmentalist, Peter Max has been at the forefront of
Environmental Preservation efforts for over five decades.

The First Environmental U.S. Postage Stamp

As Max’s poster art is associated with the spirit of ecology, the U.S. Postal Service commissions the artist to create the first ten-cent postage stamp commemorating Expo ’74 World’s Fair in Spokane, Washington. Max uses the line, “Preserve the Environment.”
“Throughout the years, I have painted so many beautiful, beautiful, imaginative musicians: Mick Jagger, Sting, The Beatles, David Bowie, Duke Ellington, Frank Sinatra, Pharrell Williams, Quincy Jones, Michael Jackson, Elton John, Jon Bon Jovi, Yes, Phil Collins, Gwen Stefani, Steven Tyler, Aretha Franklin, Norah Jones, Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and so many others. It’s mind-blowing when I think about it. I love great music and the amazingly talented people that make it.”      Peter Max

“I really love my hand-painted Fender Telecaster guitars in this exhibition. I’ve painted some of my most iconic images on them: my Angel with Heart, Lady Liberty, my hearts, and a homage to da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. They’re colorful and unique. Guitar players and collectors tell me how much they love them”.  Peter Max

Max’s “Be In” Love poster inspires several hundred thousand hippies to gather in New York City’s Central Park and immortalize the Summer of Love.

Pittsburgh Plumbing Services Available Now

Posted on July 28, 2021 in 2021 Back To School Gift Guide

I want to start by saying, “I love Restano”.  It’s been on my radar for a while now.  The Pittsburgh-based company is the best at what they do.  I’ve been going to them for a while now, and every time, I’m more satisfied with their work.  The Pittsburgh Plumbing Service is the Bomb!  There’s no better company to get your services from.  They take pride in their work.

You could try Home Depot, or even Lowes, for this kind of thing, but why not go to a Pittsburgh Plumbing Service company, if you are in the area.  Restano will be your go-to company all the time, once you use them.  You’ll be so satisfied you won’t want to go to anyone else.

Heating, Cooling and Plumbing all in one place.  It’s a great feeling when you can get everything done at one time.  You will not regret using this company for all of these needs.  My Uncle just had Heating/Cooling changed in his home, using Restano, and so far, he’s never been more pleased.  But the plumbing is the GREATEST of their assets, you really want to use them in the future.

Penncraft Market has the Best Cookie Trays!

Posted on December 28, 2020 in 2020 Holiday Gift Guide

Penncraft Market

Penncraft Market has been around for a long time, but they’ve really outdone themselves with their cookie tray, this year.  I am beyond satisfied!  I ordered a 7 dozen cookie tray, and the price was $46.20.  I can’t get over how fancy, and delicious it was.  I forgot to take a picture before we dug in.  It had so many specialty cookies on it.  My favorite was the Pecan Tassies.  My husband’s was the Lady Locks.  The tray is almost gone!

Penncraft Market also has delicious fruit trays, in the spring.  I’ve ordered them for Partylite Parties, and they’ve been delightful.   And, don’t get me started on the Pepperoni Rolls.  They are super delish.

My mom loved her Gingerbread Man I got her for her Birthday, which was Christmas Eve.  And, the Princess Cake.  Yes, they make Princess Cakes!  It was fantastic!

Next time you need a cookie tray, or pepperoni rolls, remember Penncraft Market, if you live in this area.  You won’t regret it.

Thank you Penncraft for making our Christmas special, with your products!

Sangawa Project is an adult anime convention (18+) run by the Pittsburgh Japanese Culture Society. This convention allows anime fans to meet a couple of their favorite voice actors, cosplay, play some games in the gaming room, and attend some panels. The best part of it all is the mature environment surrounding the convention!

They also brought Rob McCollum, who plays Reiner in Attack on Titan, Shinya Kogami in Psycho-Pass, Mifune in Soul Eater, and many more!

Sangawa Project also held a couple alcohol events for the 21+ audience that came, including the Taste of Japan and the Sangawa Social. The Taste of Japan is where you can enjoy a selection of Japanese alcoholic drinks and learn the basics to tasting. The drinks they had this year were: Awa Yuki Sparkling Sake, Plum Fu Ki, Yoshi No Gawa Junmai Ginjo Sake, Hibiki Suntory Whiskey, Hana Lychee Flavored Sake, and Sakemoto Premium Junmai Sake. The Sangawa Social is a place to just hangout or to participate in a recipe challenge.

There was also an Exhibition Hall where you could buy all the anime merch you could want. They played different anime during the weekend in the video room, some being One Punch Man and Food Wars.

Pennsylvania is the 9th Lenient State on DUI

Posted on August 10, 2017 in Announcements

Drunk driving takes a terrible toll on the United States – one measured not only in dollars, but also far more importantly, in lives lost. It was to blame for 29% of motor vehicle fatalities in 2015, according to the latest data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. It claims roughly 10,000 lives per year. And it costs Americans more than $44 billion annually.There is good news, though. Drunk-driving fatalities dropped by 57% from 1982 to 2014, according to the NHTSA, as states have cracked down on the practice. As a result, motor vehicle crashes are no longer among America’s top 10 causes of death.
But which states are taking the most aggressive stance toward “driving under the influence” (DUI) and “driving while intoxicated” (DWI)? To find out, WalletHub compared the drunk driving penalties in all 50 states and D.C. You can find a complete breakdown below.

Kennywood For a Summer Of Fun

Posted on July 10, 2017 in Amusement Park Kennywood

Kennywood Park, in Pittsburgh, PA had their Comic Con on June 18, 2017. As we walked in, we saw The Flash and Supergirl standing at a booth and didn’t hesitate to get our picture with them! As we walked through the park, we saw booths of comic books, jewelry, art, and much more! In one of the pavilions, artists were set up with art and jewelry. It was awesome getting to see and purchase some of the art. These artists were all very talented and each had a unique twist on the styles they drew in.

We went around the park and rode a lot of the rides, from the Jack Rabbit to the Merry Go Round. We made sure to play some games, too! The ping pong game was always my favorite, so I made sure to play that a lot!

We had some potato path fries for lunch and stopped at another booth to get some mac n cheese.  The food has always been one of my favorite parts are Kennywood.  It’s been a family favorite, for many years.  My mom and dad were coming here a long time before me, and my family will come here for years to come, as well.

There’s always shows going on, throughout the day, as well.  It’s so much fun going to an Amusement Park to watch a show, or two.  We loved the time we had.

My mom and dad always take my 6 year old, brother, to Kiddieland.  He loves it in there, and the rides are perfect for him.  However, he’s getting big enough, that he can enjoy some of the other rides, throughout the park, as well.

They also have face painting, and other things.  There’s a few gift shops, and lots of Rollercoasters.  You will enjoy your day at Kennywood, just as I have.

Get your tickets now for Tekko Next Year!

Posted on April 15, 2017 in tekko 2017


Tekko is Pittsburgh’s premiere anime, gaming, fashion, music, and Japanese pop culture convention presented by the Pittsburgh Japanese Culture Society. This year, Tekko was able to bring in over 8,000 attendees, a new record for the convention. During the weekend there were many panels available to go to, so many that I wanted to split myself in half to try to attend them all!

One of the panels I was able to attend was “Did You Know? Shinigami Love Apples. Death Note In Depth”. This panel was all about Death Note, the speakers of the panel were even in cosplay. L asked if we were all Pro-Kira or Anti-Kira, which if you’ve watched this show you’re most likely Pro-Kira. Who wouldn’t love someone who wanted to get rid of all of the bad people and crime in the world? The room, unsurprisingly was Pro-Kira for the most part. They also brought it different aspects of how Death Note relates to the Bible. Another one of the panels we attended was “Sweet Viktuuri- Behind the Scenes of Yuri! On Ice”. This panel was interactive and very fun. You could definitely tell the presenter knew what she was talking about. I learned a lot about who Yuri was based off of and how the author came about making the show.


One of my favorite panels was “The Art of Packing your Lunch- Bento 101”. During this panel, Katy Wolfe taught us the ins and outs of packing a bento. A bento is a single serving meal, that consists of rice, fish or meat, and veggies. Katy told us that we should stay away from the bento kits, which are mostly way more expensive than any other bento box, rice shapers because they are hard to use and are horrible to clean. One of the last panels we visited was “Cooking With a Killer Robot”. This panel was about the video game Undertale and how to make the different foods in the video game. The presenters were Pixel By Pixel Cosplay. They were cosplaying as the main characters in the game: Alphys, Mettaton, Papyrus, Toriel, and Burgerpants. They made Starfaits (Mettaton’s favorite), spaghetti (Papyrus’ favorite), and Butterscotch Cinnamon Pie (Toriel’s favorite). These cosplayers never broke character and were some of the sweetest people.

Tekko held their opening ceremonies Friday evening. Comedian Uncle Yo was the host of these ceremonies; he introduced all of the guests they would have during the weekend. These guests included: MAGIC OF LiFE, Kimura U, Ian Sinclair, Brina Palencia, Jad Saxton, Cherami Leigh, Jeff Nimoy, Haenuli, and a four DJ line up. They also had a booth set up upstairs that helped with your cosplay if something happened to it. They had golden tickets under the seats during the opening ceremonies to win a comic or other special items, and we were lucky enough to get one under our seat. Nancy Kepner (HeartfeltHumor on youtube) was one of the musical guests. She writes and sings her own music, all about pop culture. Some of the songs she performed for us were the weeabo song, the fan service song, there –dere song, and a song about yuri on ice.


The band that performed this year was MAGIC OF LiFE. This was their first concert in the US. Before the concert, they had a Q&A session where we learned a lot about them, for example what they would’ve liked to be if they wouldn’t have made it in the music business, their Uncle Yo was the host of these ceremonies; he introduced all of the guests they would have during the weekend.

Their concert was an amazing experience, between being in the front row and then getting their autographs afterwards.


Tekko had aa exhibition room and gaming room open throughout the weekend. There were many vendors in the exhibition room as well as the fashion designers trying to sell their merchandise. There was a variety of things to buy in the exhibition room, from gaming, to anime to fashion. There were body pillows, buttons, art, posters, corgi butt purses, and so much more!

One of the things I really liked that Tekko did was the closing ceremonies. During these ceremonies, they released the theme for next year as well as take in advice the audience was willing to give to make next year even better. They even gave a hint for who one of the voice actors might be next year!
