Lennox
Good news Stuarty, you were worried for nothing .


I am getting used to New Contact lens, why did I do this 4 days before getting on a plane ? anyone got a good answer? Oh I know Vainity biggrin.gif
Heather
Oh dear Angel you should have let me know I would have sent my husband over he is a Plumber & Gas Fitter. His only charge would have been a cup of tea. smile.gif

Lennox get a pair of flight stockings, I always wear them when flying, especially long distance and you will probably be on the plane 7/8 hours.

I got this email today and thought it would be interesting to all.

Safety Tips

Because of recent abductions in daylight hours, refresh yourself of these things to do in an emergency situation.
This is for you, and for you to share with your wife, your children, everyone you know.
After reading these 9 crucial tips.
.

1 Tip from Tae Kwon Do : The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do!

2. Learned this from a tourist guide in New Orleans If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM . Toss it away from you.... chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you, and he will go for the wallet/purse. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!

3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car, kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy. The driver won't see you, but everybody else will.
This has saved lives.

4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc. DON'T DO THIS!)
The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side, put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR,LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE.

If someone is in the car with a gun to your head DO NOT DRIVE OFF, repeat: DO NOT DRIVE OFF! Instead gun the engine and speed into anything, wrecking the car. Your Air Bag will save you.
If the person is in the back seat they will get the worst of it As soon as the car crashes bail out and run. It is better than having them find your body in a remote location.

5 . A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage:
A.) Be aware: look around you, look into your car, at the passenger side floor, and in the back seat
B.) If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door .
Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.
C.) Look at the car parked on the driver's side of your vehicle, and the passenger side.. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out.
IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)

6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. (Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot.
This is especially true at NIGHT!)

7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN!
The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; And even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN, Preferably in a zig -zag pattern!

8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP It may get you raped, or killed.
Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked "for help" into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.


9. Another Safety Point:

Someone just told me that her friend heard a crying baby on her porch the night before last, and she called the police because it was late and she thought it was weird. The police told her "Whatever you do, DO NOT open the door." The lady then said that it sounded like the baby had crawled near a window, and she was worried that it would crawl to the street and get run over.
The policeman said, "We already have a unit on the way, whatever you do, DO NOT open the door."
He told her that they think a serial killer has a baby's cry recorded and uses it to coax women out of their homes thinking that someone dropped off a baby He said they have not verified it, but have had several calls by women saying that they hear baby's cries outside their doors when they're home alone at night.

Please pass this on and DO NOT open the door for a crying baby ----
This e-mail should probably be taken seriously because the Crying Baby theory was mentioned on America 's Most Wanted this past Saturday when they profiled the serial killer in Louisiana.


I'd like you to forward this to all the women you know.
It may save a life. A candle is not dimmed by lighting another candle.
I was going to send this to the ladies only, but guys, if you love your mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, etc., you may want to pass it onto them, as well.

Send this to any woman you know that may need to be reminded that the world we live in has a lot of crazies in it and it's better to be safe than sorry..
Everyone should take 5 minute's to read this. It may save your life or love one's life.

maryhillgal
Just trying to tidy up the house a bit and it is taking me ages as I am so short of breath. Have to sit down every few minutes to get my second wind.

Good news Stuarty - what are we like, we worry ourselves sick and it turns out OK.
murn
Heather my hubby sent that email to me a while ago (he usually sends me emails beats talking to me wink.gif )

I find the the statement about being paranoid so true, most women are afraid of looking silly so will just ignore their insticts when something does not feel right to them. Most times the stranger lurking around your car is just a fed up husband waiting for his wife but as it says better to be paranoid (am good at that)

QUOTE
IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)

Heather
We were out all day hunting for Wallpaper. Finally picked one we saw a week ago. It's not exactly what we wanted but we had to pick something as we were seeing the same Wallpaper in all the shops we had gone to.
The main paper has a white background with the small green flower and the contrast for the bottom of the wall is just green with a risen stripe. This means I have to look for new curtains and cushion covers. wub.gif
penny dainty
Well were back , sorry Ron didnt take the camera , so no photos this time, I'll try and mind it next trip.Weekend away was lovely, very hot though, the cane toads thought so too.Went for a wee during the evening , we have an en suite site with it right next to the van, much better than having to walk over the park in the dark every time you want to go, and here is Mr. Cane Toad luxuriating in the cool and the wet of the toilet bowl.OH !says I, well not really but what I did say would put the cheeky metre off the scale."MR DAINTY get yourself in here", says I, he thought it was extremely funny, humph! glad someone did, anyway he says "no problem luv", and simply flushed the beggar away.Well it was the quickest visit to the loo in history , danm thing wasny goin tae bite me on the bum. ohmy.gif
