"What To Take To Bed With You"  
Put your car keys beside your bed at night. 
Tell your spouse, your children, your neighbors, your parents, your Dr's office, the check-out girl at the market, everyone you run across. 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 crime.  
P.S.: I am sending this to everyone I know because I think it is fantastic. Would also be useful for any emergency, such as a heart attack, where you can't reach a phone. My Mom has suggested to my Dad that he carry his car keys with him in case he falls outside and she doesn't hear him. He can activate the car alarm and then she'll know there's a problem.  
Please pass this on even if you've read it before. It's a reminder.
"OnWhich Isle Is The Polish Sausage" 
Everyone seems to be in such a hurry to scream 'racism' these days.  
A customer asked, "In what aisle could I find the Polish sausage?"  
The clerk asks, "Are you Polish?"  
The guy, clearly offended, says, "Yes I am. But let me ask you something.  
"If I had asked for Italian sausage, would you ask me if I was Italian?  
Or if I had asked for German Bratwurst, would you ask me if I was German?  
Or if I asked for a kosher hot dog would you ask me if I was Jewish?  
Or if I had asked for a Taco, would you ask if I was Mexican?  
Or if I asked for some Irish whiskey, would you ask if I was Irish?"  
The clerk says, "No, I probably wouldn't." 
The guy says, "Because I asked for Polish sausage, why did you ask me if I'm Polish?"  
"The clerk replied, "Because you're in Home Depot."
