Glad I don't live in a more dense populated area.  Out here, we all keep an eye on each other's homes and property and of course we are all armed.  Not much goes on out here especially when you  know what everyone drives and anything out of the normal is noted and investigated.

Between the big black nasty looking dog we have and the firearms, anyone would be a fool to break in or steal from here.  The dog don't like strangers anyway.  Shows his pearly white fangs and rolls his jowls up instantly.  Could be that 'Protected BY ATD' sign at the end of the drive too.... ;D

I have a few of those signs around the house too.  I'm thinking of adding an alarm outside the house too.  One neighbor can hear my inside alarm if they are outside but then nobody would be breaking in..

Best alarm there is, is a loaded handgun and someone who knows how to use it properly.

Like my buddy at the plant in Butler, Indiana I had lunch with yesterday.  They have signs in the lobby and outside that say 'Premises under Video Survaliance'  I asked him where the cameras were as I didn't see any.  He smiled and said the signs are a great deterrent.

Makes sense to me, just like the ADT signs.  You never know.

Big piece on the front page of the MEN about the ongoing pot issues in Summerfield Township (aka: Smokefield Township) and the City of Petersburg (aka: Potburg).... ;D

Plus a nice letter to the editor from a Township resident voicing her concerns about the proposed pot plant.  I stand firm on a no vote on the pot inititative and another no on retail pot establishments in the Township in general for a number of reasons, mainly, lack of 24 / 7 police protection.

I guess better to be Potburg rather than Heroin Town.

Saw in the paper the Bedford  "Foodtown"   Pharmacy was shut down for filling too many pain pill prescriptions...   hope they go after the ones who wrote those scripts as well! 

Its that new law creating the database of prescriptions doing the job it was intended...    Flagging such activities.

Read in one of the articles regarding the pharm that a doctor or 2 that were in trouble before were the key to identifying this pharm wrong doings.  Was the pharm participating or just following doctors orders?  I'm guessing the pharm was part of the scam.

I know a pharmacists who started to turn away the pill mill scripts... years ago      Its not hard to ID the volume from one doctor - 

The next people to be charged should be the companies that ship to such pharmacies - they also have to know the volumes are abnormal!

Read that it was a Dundee Salienbeam that got killed in NB 23 the other day.  Must have been distracted driving.

Driving 15 hours to New Orleans gave us plenty of opportunities to witness people on their cell phones...

Also,  I sure wish they would put cruise controls on all cars again  ;) 



Its a shame the building was left to rot -  but may as well complete the destruction of all the former businesses in the area ...   why stop at this old building

I'd like to see 'distracted driving' made a multiple point infraction all across the country.
