Breakin at the office

A couple of days ago my office was broken into. They literally moved a concrete garbadge can out of the way and drove a pickup truck through the front of my office. They tore out a glass door, large glass windows and the security gates. They setoff the alarm which alerted the alarm company and the the police. I also had a security camera which was attached to the ceiling and it was broken due to the percussion of the blast through the windows. The burglars managed to get away with 10 or so laptops, a few desktops and a bunch of other computer parts. It was defintely a smash and grab. It happened at 1:00am in the morning exactly. The camera picked up the time, and then it died from the blast. The police came out very timely, but the burglars had already left the scene of the crime. The police said that this type of crime is usually later in the early morning hours. I am amazed at the lengths at which people will go to steal stuff. I thought I had pretty good security. Metal gates, alarms and cameras. I called the landlord and requested that they put in concrete pilons up front to prevent this in the future. They agreed and will be doing this soon, I hope. Has something like this happened to you? What are your thoughts?

People in crosswalks not looking

Crosswalks and People

I am leaving the Wallmart over the weekend and this girl walks in front of me in a crosswalk. Granted people do have the right away in crosswalks. The only problem that I see is that she is on her cell phone and she doesn’t even look left or right to see if anyone is coming. She just walked right out in front of my vehicle. You are totally in the right being in a crosswalk, but you will still be dead if you get run over from not looking to see who is coming. I see people in parking lots going way too fast and I see where someone could get hurt. What do you think? Was she right or was she wrong?

Babies, car seats and airplanes

While traveling on several planes the other day I noticed something. I noticed that there were several babies on the plane. The mothers and fathers were holding the babies to comfort them. There was some very heavy turbulence on the plane. I was wondering why the children weren’t in special protective child seats during the heavy turbulence. It seems to me that the children are in some danger in the sky as they are  in an automobile. If the baby did fall I am sure the parent’s would be the first to sue the airline. If we have laws for autos why don’t we have the same laws for airplanes? What do you think? Someone please explain to me how this works, thanks.
