    Re: Beware of your GPS!

    Then how heck to I find my way home after a few rounds of 151 rum ;-)
    Given GPS *was* off topic for a traditional navigation group, and home
    security is further off topic, I submit the following thoughts.
    Lets examine this idea.  There is a keyed dead-bolt lock for the door
    between the garage and the home in my case. A garage-door opener will only
    gain access to the garage, and slow down the entry which may be painful if
    there is an electronic home-security system in place.  It will slow a
    potential thief down.
    License plates alone, coupled with the registration in the glove box and a
    phone book will give a clever thief the address.
    I prefer the old school method of scanning the obituaries (you can do this
    without a computer).  With a name, phone book,  and the visiting
    hours/burial time you can be almost certain the home is unattended. The
    caveat here is to be certain the deceased is not a Methodist.  This a
    Christian religion that believes they are but one casserole away from
    heaven. In this case (and other cultures) you can be almost certain there
    are many women in the home preparing/delivering food.  In the US of A
    Midwest this would almost certainly include several green-bean casseroles,
    complete with cream of mushroom soup and topped with French's french-fried
    onions ;-)
