Take your garage door openers out of your cars

Recommended Posts

Last night we had a break in at our Townhome complex. Someone hopped the fence or somehow got through the gates and broke into a truck. The owners had left their garage door opener inside their truck (which was parked in a guest parking spot), and the robbers proceeded to enter their house through the garage while they were sleeping. They found all 3 sets of keys and needless to say this morning our neighbors woke up to 3 missing cars. Since they were asleep on the 3rd floor they heard nothing.Luckily they were not hurt and it doesn't look like anything else was stolen.

 

Just a warning. I know I received an email about this a few months back from my Grandma and ignored it thinking it was just needless worrying but the sad fact is things like this happen.

 

Martin's parents were also broken into last week. They kicked in their bedroom door in broad daylight and took everything valuable in site.

 

It's a good reminder to always keep on the lookout - lock doors that lead from the garage into the house, take your garage openers out of your cars and set your alarm system if you have one.

 

Stay safe BDW!

Wow, Jaime, I am glad Martin's parents weren't home! That really stinks. My house was robbed before and it is such an invasive feeling. I will pass the word.

That is a scary thought! If you have an alarm system, I suggest looking into a remote keyfob for your alarm. We have one and LOVE it. One button turns the alarm on/off. One button is for a "panic". The third can be programmed a few different ways. Our are programmed to open/close our garage door. (helped too because there were no remotes left by the seller!). It stays on my keychain - never left in the car. Seems much safer.

And, I know the panic works because I accidently hit it once - OOPS! Police came right away & I ended up paying a fee because we had another false alarm a few months before.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
