dedication


n. the giving of land by a private person or entity to the government, typically for a street, park or school site, as part of and a condition of a real estate development. The local county or city (or other public body) must accept the dedication before it is complete. In many cases there are "dedicated" streets on old subdivision maps which were never officially accepted and, in effect, belong to no one. The adjoining property owners can sue for a judgment to give them the title to the unclaimed (unowned) street or property by a quiet title action or request abandonment by the government which did not accept the street or other property. See also: quiet title action

    I am widowed and retired from full time employment but like to keep working. This year I will be testing for national certification as a Medical Interpreter Spanish- English. I am studying to learn the Russian language and in a year or so plan to spend some time in Russia to complete the study and gain proficiency. I am a volunteer Interpreter with a free clinic and do a few other things that keep me busy.

    me gusta conocer cosas nuevas en la vida, al menos siempre que tengo la posibilidad lo hago y esta es una de ellas... además soy cariñoso, amable y buen amigo de quienes lo merecen, me gustan muchas cosas como por ejemplo: ver mi familia feliz y unida, también me gusta conocer las artes desde la pintura, la actuación, la fotografía, la musica, en específico la música clásica y la romantica aunque escucho todo tipo de musica, pero si puedo escoger lo hago, también conocer otros idiomas, para una mejor comprención y una facil comunicación ncon el mundo que me rodea y no permanecer ajeno al mundo exterior por así decirlo de alguna manera, esto es una pequeña reseña de lo pudiera ser una descripción personal. a todo aquel que tenga la posibilidad de leer este texto lo invito a que sea mi amigo ( a), agradecer además por su tiempo precioso y la posibilidad de que sea mi amigo
