Our Wacky, Scary World!

Could this world get any wackier? Do you sometimes wish you could live in a cave? I doubt it, but you have got to admit that it's one way to protect your family from the predators and crooks who live amongst us all. Maybe if you owned your own island, perhaps that would keep them away from your loved ones. However, for 97% of the population, that is not a viable option.

You may not be the type of person who reads several newspapers a day. In fact, you may not even read a newspaper at all. You probably do not watch news channels all day long, or maybe you don't even watch the news at all. Does this mean that you are immune from the violence that happens around you every minute of the day? Of course not!

Make sure that you do everything in your power to protect your family and your possessions! There are several very inexpensive home protection products that are designed to keep those scary people out of your home. Whether you consider door braces (a jam under the door knob or one that fits into a sliding glass door), window & door alarms, or a volumetric alarm which measures change in air pressure, I'm sure it will be some of the best money that you have ever spent. Some alarms are portable and offer protection while traveling for business or vacation, also.

Okay, what if these crooks still manage to break into your home? The Chicago Crime Commission states that a burglar spends an average of 8 minutes in the victim's home. So what if you hide your valuables in plain sight and put the odds back in your favor? Diversion safes have improved quite a bit in the last few years and are now more realistic than ever. These are hollowed shells of popular household products, personal care items, and food containers with removable tops and bottoms. They are weighted to feel like the "real product" & would fool anyone. Just fill them with your possessions and put them in their "rightful place".

Yes, the world continues to get scarier, and the criminals persist and remain constant threats to all of us. Most of us don't live in a cave, or have our own island, so we have got to be one step ahead of these "piranhas" at all times if we are to protect our most important assets. Spending a few dollars now could save a lot of heartache in the future.
