    It's amazing what people do. Great idea about notifying the sheriff's office, because if anything did have your name and address you surely would be sited.

    Many years ago a lady was walking her dog. She was a nice responsible lady and had a bag with dog "duty" in it. Some man ran up to her and just grabbed it out of her hands, and ran off. He stopped a few hundred feet away to see what he had. He stuck his hand in the bag and yelled "OH SH**!!". She yelled back "Yes it is!". (this was told to me as a true story)

    It's been about 31 years ago, my house was broken into. We had to go up to the next town to sit with a family member who was sick. When we got home we discovered the backdoor window had been busted. The fridge door was open, open cans strewn about and dirty dishes all over the stove and counter.

    I was so mad I ran out to the street and threw a pack of bacon into the road and yelled.....You idiots forgot the effin' bacon. Our landlord came by the next day to fix the window and brought us several bags full of groceries. I knew who did it, all I said to them was.....All you had to do was ask, we would have gave you all we could spare.

    When DH & I were newly wed, we went to spend the day in San Francisco after visiting his grandmother and, not knowing the city very well, ended up parking our car in a not-so-great area. When we came back we found that someone had smashed the window and stolen a bag that his gran had just given to us out of the back seat.

    The contents of the bag? A bunch of old worn-out socks his gran had saved for me to make into dog toys. It cost us a couple hundred bucks to get the window fixed, but I still think it's funny someone stole a bunch of old socks.

    I'm interested in your fire starter bricks. We have a wood stove that I make waxed paper starters for. I save and roll up our junk mail and purged statements, anything with our name and address or account numbers on them. When we need starter papers, I melt old candles, old crayons and candles from yard sales in a bread baking pan on our wood stove. When the wax is completely melted I dip the rolled up papers in the wax, line them up on newspaper to cool and harden, then stack in a basket next to the stove ready for the next fire. Nobody can read our info in the ashes.

    I live near Jerome Arizona which is a old mining town and now it is a tourist town on the side of a 7000 ft mountain. I saw in one of the shops they had those white starafoam peanuts in baggies and they were selling them as Ghost poop. It is strash and they are making money.
