  • Be Prepared

    I was watching the second season of Fargo, and in the very first episode Judge Mundt  played by Joan Cusack, a great actress who is under utilized, goes into a diner.  She sits at a table and orders.  Rye Gerhardt, played by Kieran Culkin, comes in sits opposite of her in a booth and starts trying to pressure her about a case.  She is having none of it.  She gets out a bottle of bug spray sets it on the table and basically tells him to get lost.  He does not take her seriously and is about to start again when she sprays him in the face.  He then shoots her.
    WHAT WAS SHE THINKING?  First, Judge Mundt totally over reacted to being aggressively approached at the diner.  If Rye Gerhardt started to become physically violent (he did have a gun), did she honestly believe bug spray was going to cut it.  It deterred him for just a few moments.  She should have used mace.  Mace would have been effective much longer than the bug spray.
    She, also, seemed to have no plan as to what she should do if she used the bug spray.  She just stood there and watched the effects of her handy work.  Did she not realize that having something nasty sprayed into his eyes would make him angry?
    Just make sure that if you carry a weapon that it is an effective weapon, that you know how to use it and have practiced with it.  During an altercation is not when you want to find out that your protection is worthless and definitely not the time to figure out how to use it.  Also, have an exit strategy,  spray him or tase him (or her)  and then get the hell out of there.

  • Super Door Stop Alarm

    When I moved out of my parent's house to go to school, it was in a completely different city ninety miles away.  There were no family members living nearby or friends I could call.  Help, except the police, was literally over an hour away.  Until I got to know the neighborhood better (and how well can you ever get to know your neighborhood, with people moving in and out all the time) and became familiar with it's particular night noises, I would frequently be awakened by what seemed to be odd sounds.
    If my kids were placed in the same situation, I would make sure they had the Super Door Stop Alarm.  This item is wedge shaped, so a person only has to place it under the door.  If an intruder manages to pick the lock and open the door, the wedge shaped door stop alarm will keep the door from opening.  It will also sound an alarm of 120 dB which will not cut off until someone turns it off.  There is also a movement sensor which can be adjusted to low, medium, or high that can activate if the alarm is tampered with.
    One of the best features in my opinion is that there is no installation required.  If you are at home, you put it under your own door.  If you are traveling, you turn the door stop alarm switch off, easily located on the back, drop it into your purse or luggage.  It is lightweight, coming in at less than half of a pound and only measures  at 5 1/2 inches in length.  When you have reached your destination and are settled in, you put it under the door, flip the switch on, and sleep soundly.  It only requires a 9 volt battery.
    Definitely one of my favorite products.
    Stay safe.
