In the end, it was a good wake up call ... albeit an expensive one.
So ... my public service announcement ... tips from the nice police officer that took the report:
- 80% of ALL home break-ins happen during the day, through an unlocked door or window,
- Get the loudest alarm you can with both an indoor and outdoor siren, pass on the monitoring,
- Don't leave your goodies on the counter top where the thief expects to find them ... putting them in a drawer or closet will decrease the likelihood of theft by over 90%.
The MacBook was replaced tonight ... the rest will have to wait ... which means no photos of quilts for a bit ... guess I can't give anymore away for a while ;-).
Anyway ... stay safe and I will look forward to watching YOUR quilts for a little while!
All the best,
