    That stinks. I've had the experience and really feel for your loss. I have had a reasonably sophisticated alarm system ever since the break in. Battery and cellular back-up and all that.

    Of course as long as I'm paying for the alarm service, no one will try to steal anything . . . at least it gets me a break on my homeowner's insurance. What was stolen last time would have paid for the service for several years. The insult to injury thing is that if I had filed a claim, the cost for insurance would have doubled for the next 3 years so I ate it.

    Larry, that is terrible. I am sorry to hear of the robbery. I though hope the cops get them before you do as they even if convicted probably won't get much, but if you were to find them and take it out of their hide, you would be hung. Don't know what the world is coming to, but at times isn't pretty. I fear a cold winter will bring on more thieving as money does seem tight to most people.

    Major drag, Larry! Brought back feelings I'd hoped to forget.

    Oh man, that stinks. I cannot fathom how someone can do that - how do they justify stealing? It would be too much shame and guilt for me to handle. I guess some just don't care.

    Larry, I hope you have good luck getting your things back.
