OK, Nobody wants to get robbed, but most people don't realize all the ways they're making their houses ATTRACTIVE to burglars!
HouseLogic.com has a list of eight things people do that make
it easier for burglars to rob you....!
1. Leaving a ladder in the yard. Burglars can
easily get around a lot of home security systems by getting into a second-story window that isn't wired in. So don't leave a ladder sitting outside in your yard, where anyone can get to it.
2. Leaving new appliance and electronics packaging out on the
curb. When you get a new TV and leave the box outside next to
your garbage, EVERYONE knows you just got a new TV.
The week after Christmas, burglars basically get to pick what they want to steal. The houses with boxes on the curb and no cars outside are just ASKING to be cleaned out.
3. Having flimsy wood-panel doors on back or side entrances. Burglars often get in by just kicking a hole in a back or side door. So every door should be steel-wrapped and deadbolted . . . or at least it should be solid wood that can't be kicked in.
4. Hanging a mirror in your entryway. Think about it: A mirror FACING your front door allows people to look in through a window, and see whether your alarm is set. If you need to have a mirror by the door, hang it where it can't be seen from outside.
5. Leaving the grass uncut. Never go on a long vacation without getting someone you trust to maintain your yard, and pick up
mail and newspapers.
Also, don't leave the garage door opener in your second car, if it's going to stay in the driveway or on the street. If your garage is attached, a burglar can break your car window and use the opener to walk right into your house.
6. Using a fire safe. Don't put your valuables into a lockbox or fire safe and leave it sitting in the closet. That's like putting everything the burglars want into a convenient carry case for them. Use a wall safe, or get a safe deposit box at the bank.
7. Updating your Facebook status. Think about all the "friends of friends" nearby who'll know exactly where you are when you post something online. And don't upload your vacation photos until you get BACK FROM VACATION.
If you're using Foursquare or any other
8. Selling things on Craigslist. When you're selling something locally, the worst thing you can do is invite complete strangers INTO YOUR HOUSE to look at it. If they like it, they can just pick it up and run with it . . . or worse, steal it at gunpoint.
If you don't know the buyers, arrange to meet them in a public place.
THIS one will get stuck in your head for awhile...
On a much more serious note, chilling reports on the kidnappings were released today and the Cleveland city prosecutor charged the Ariel Castro, with four counts of kidnapping. Authorities filed no charges against Castro’s two brothers as they said they had no evidence that the two brothers, Pedro and Onil Castro, were involved in the kidnappings.
My very best to the women as they will be healing for quite some time.
As we count down to Sunday there are a bunch of new surveys about Mother's Day.
See what you think about these five random findings . . .
1. The average person believes their mom deserves a salary of $160,182 for all the work she does.
2. Two-thirds of people worry more about what to buy their mom for
Mother's Day than their dad for Father's Day.
3. 10% of people will not be giving their mom a gift this year.
4. If you're going to take your mom out to eat on Mother's Day, make a reservation or go at an off time. Approximately 80 million of the adults in the U.S. will be going out to eat on Sunday . . . that's approximately
5. 55% of people going out to eat on Sunday will go out for
dinner. 34% will do lunch, 30% will do brunch, and 12% will do
breakfast. Yes, that adds up to more than 100% . . . because about one quarter of people will eat out more than once.
Oh yes they DID... TOO SOON?

this crazy situation. They will need plenty of mental therapy.)
