Suzanne Cooper's Beadylicious Newsletter #132 August 15, '09

My web host has changed the dates my site will be down. This is the THIRD date they have given me. Grrrrrrrrr. As of now my sites will be down beginning Friday, August 21, starting at 8 pm EDT, and continuing into Saturday, August 22. I will not be able to receive e-mail at my regular address so if you need something or just want to chat you can e-mail me here. Remove the "stars" of course. Don't you just hate that the spammers make us go to this trouble?

I think I wrote somewhere that I was not going to be uploading any more switchplate covers. Oops, I forgot one! I uploaded the Judica switchplates today plus some more goodies.

I'm feeling rather sad today. Our best local bead store is closing in four or five days. I can't remember the date. I think I'm blocking it from my mind. The owner fell in love and moved to California. I wish her the best but I'll miss having that store just a few blocks away. The only way I know to cheer myself is to look at pretty beadwork! I have some beadylicious eye candy for you today. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the goodies.

Till next time, bead well.
Suzanne

 HINT FROM A NEWSLETTER READER

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 fob 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 sure enough 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.

Read what Snopes has to say about this. They give some good advise on protecting yourself. http://www.snopes.com/crime/prevent/caralarm.asp
