Protection For You And Your Home

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

Put your car keys beside your bed at night.

Tell your spouse, your children, your neighbors, your parents, your Dr.'s office, the check-out girl at the market, everyone you run across. Put your car keys beside your bed at night.

If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off or the car battery dies. This tip came from a neighborhood watch coordinator. Next time you come home for the night and you start to put your keys away, think of this: It's a security alarm system that you probably already have and requires no installation. Test it. It will go off from most everywhere inside your house and will keep honking until your battery runs down or until you reset it with the button on the key chain. It works if you park in your driveway or garage. If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break into your house, odds are the burglar/rapist won't stick around. After a few seconds all the neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and the criminal won't want that. And remember to carry your keys while walking to your car in a parking lot. The alarm can work the same way there. This is something that should really be shared with everyone. Maybe it could save a life or a sexual abuse crime.

PS........This would also be useful for any emergency, such as a heart attack, where you are alone and can't reach a phone. Also, if you fall and can't get up, it would serve as an alert.

    Very smart idea, thank you for sharing. Those of us living in the country migt have less chance of neighbors hearing but still think it might scare off a person trying break in.

Perfectly Logical To All Males

Monday, June 13, 2011

This is a story which is perfectly logical to all males:

A wife asks her husband, "Could you please go shopping for me, and buy one carton of milk, and if they have eggs, get 6."

A short time later the husband comes back with 6 cartons of milk.

The wife asks him, "Why did you buy 6 cartons of milk?"

He replied, "They had eggs."

Golf (With a Twist)

Sunday, June 12, 2011

A man, while playing on the front nine of a complicated golf course became confused as to where he was on the course.

Looking around, he saw a lady playing ahead of him. He walked up to her, explained his confusion and asked her if she knew what hole he was playing.

"I'm on the 7th hole," she replied, "and you are a hole behind me, so you must be on the 6th hole."

He thanked her and went back to his golf.

On the back nine, the same thing happened and he approached her again with the same request.

"I'm on number 14, and you're still a hole behind, so you must be on the 13th hole."

Once again he thanked her and returned to his play. He finished his round and went to the clubhouse where he saw the same lady sitting at the end of the bar.

He asked the bartender if he knew the lady. The bartender said that she was a sales lady and played the course often.

He approached her and said, "Let me buy you a drink in appreciation for your
help. I understand that you're in the sales profession. I'm in sales also. What do you sell?

"I'll tell you, but you're going to laugh," she replied.

"No, I won't."

"Well, if you must know," she answered, "I work for Tampax."

With that, he laughed so hard he lost his balance and fell off the bar stool.

"See," she said. "I knew you'd laugh!"

"That's not what I'm laughing at." he replied.

"I'm a salesman for Preparation H, so I'm still a hole behind you."

LAUGHTER.......

Friday, June 10, 2011

Laughter truly is the best medicine. And, now science proves some of its many benefits. Here are seven reasons to laugh longer, harder, and more often:

1. In a recent study published in Geriatrics and Gerontology International, researchers found that laughter therapy reduced depression in the elderly patients they tested.

2. The same study also found that laughter improved sleep quality and reduced insomnia.

3. Laughter can reduce aches and pains for up to 45 minutes. In a study published in the Spanish journal Revista de Enfermeria, researchers found laughter caused reductions in chronic musculoskeletal pain.

4. Regular laughter improves the function of blood vessels while increasing blood flow, giving a boost to your cardiovascular health.

5. According to experts, sharing laughter with others helps create deeper bonds with them.

6. It is a proven stress-reliever, helping to reduce the cortisol-induced stress response. When the stress response becomes chronic, it can spell belly fat and deplete the adrenal glands.

7. Laughter gives the immune system a boost, helping to ward off infections. Whether you're fighting a cold or flu or even cancer, laughter is great medicine.
