    Sometimes the costs associated with home security can be daunting. When you buy a monitored home security system, you’re looking at a monthly monitoring fee, plus an installation fee, plus any equipment charges.

Although a home security system is a great asset for those who can afford it, there are lots of ways you can fortify your home without breaking the bank. Here are some low cost home security tactics for making your home a safer place. 1. Neighbors Your neighbors...

    In an interview with KPRC, James said a man and a woman came into the store looking at different dogs and landed on a $10,000 exotic bulldog puppy who was 7-months-old at the time. However, James said the pair took off with the puppy when she went upstairs to grab paperwork for a UPS driver. Surveillance video shows the couple leaving with James running after them. She told KPRC that the puppy had surgery just days prior and was in need of special medication. James explained that the man was driving the vehicle and when he “very aggressively” lurched the...
  • Can Dogs See Ghosts? What the Science Says

    Reader's Digest ^ | Dec. 08, 2020 | Lauren Cahn
    We know our dogs have extraordinary senses…but can they sense the presence of a ghost? The answer depends, first, on whether you believe in ghosts. Dogs are extraordinary beings, in part because humans have been breeding them that way for the last 20,000 to 40,000 years. Among their many superpowers, they can sense the presence of actual things that humans cannot, such as impending weather and or the presence of cancer. But can dogs see ghosts? Lots of people believe they can, including psychic crime solver Kristy Robinett, who shared with Reader’s Digest a tale that may make even non-believers...

    VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — Lucy, the infamous street savvy pup that has eluded capture for two years, is now in the custody of Virginia Beach Animal Control. Lucy first made headlines, and paused traffic, more than a year ago when Virginia Beach residents insisted, against city officials, on feeding the dog in the busy roadways of Lynnhaven Parkway and Sabre Street. From treats, toys, and kindness from Virginia Beach Animal Control officers, Lucy resisted all attempts of being caught in favor of the feasts passersby tossed at her. Officials said that while they understood the good intentions of the...

    Joe Biden’s dogs are playing tug-of-war with a President Donald Trump chew toy as the former vice president appeals for national “unity.” ....Snip..... "I hope you’ll enjoy these pics of me, Champ & Charlie First Grandpupper,” the post read. @NaomiBiden took these during our #TugOfWar match. Champ was the champion – some names are predestined. Just like winning, in a landslide, by a record number of votes.” The post included the hashtags “#ByeDon” and “#YoureFired”. As Biden’s canines attempt to shred the incumbent president, Biden has called for “unity” after the disputed election. “We’ve won with the most votes ever...

    chickensoup is looking for a good dog. The dog from BC didn't work out. Could not get it across the border, never mind across the country. I am looking for an English Shepherdish sort of dog. Older, 2 to 6 or 7. Well trained calm and healthy. A dog who needs a home because of change in circumstances. I can provide a dog dream home on 30 acres off road, pleasant company, not isolated, a number of friends and family to provide attention, great food and vet care. A puppy is too much energy, a cheerful shepherd-y sort of guy...

    I’m trying to think of what would possess an advisor to Joe Biden to think this was the story to go with, but here we are. As was revealed previously, Biden broke his foot in what was originally described vaguely as him simply playing with his dog. Now, the claim has morphed. Biden says he was getting out of the shower and decided to attempt to pull his dog’s tail in a playful manner. That’s when a rug came out of nowhere to trip him up, because we all break our foot when we trip over a rug, right?

    President-elect Joe Biden on Thursday revealed that he broke his foot tripping on a rug after a shower as he chased one of his dogs and grabbed its tail. Biden’s campaign previously explained the hairline fracture by saying Biden fell while playing with the dog, but did not mention the shower or tugging the animal’s tail. The injury requires Biden, who turned 78 last month, to wear a boot for weeks. “What happened was I got out of the shower. I got a dog and anybody who’s been around my house knows — dropped, little pup dropped a ball in...

    How do we know that Biden hurt his foot while "playing with his dog?" Various news outlets report that his "doctor" and his "team" are saying that. But those are partisan sources who could be inclined to shade the truth to protect Biden's image. What hard evidence do we have of what Biden was doing when he got hurt? The story of him getting hurt while playing with his dog seems awfully convenient. A nice, warm, image, suggesting also that he remains physically active. What if in fact Biden simply stumbled, collapsed, lost his balance while walking or showering, etc?...

    According to a statement from his doctor, Kevin O'Connor, Biden sustained a sprain of his right foot and while “initial X-rays are reassuring that there is no obvious fracture," he'll be receiving a CT scan for further review. Reporters covering the president-elect were not afforded the opportunity to see Biden enter the doctor's office, despite multiple requests. Leaving the doctor's office to head to an imaging center for his CT scan, Biden was visibly limping

    A dog and eight people in Nashville were wounded in a Sunday morning shooting that erupted during an argument over the animal, a report said. The pooch was shot in the hip and taken to an emergency vet after two men fired at each other just after 1 a.m. at an intersection in the city’s downtown area, authorities told the Nashville Tennessean. The dog’s condition was not immediately known. The eight adults appeared to sustain non-life-threatening injuries, the newspaper reported.

    A golden retriever’s doggedness has landed her safely back at home with her humans — about 62 miles (100 kilometers) later. Ping An, whose name translates approximately to “safe” (平安) in Chinese, reportedly walked for two weeks back to the eastern China city of Qidong, arriving understandably worse for wear, but recovering well, according to social-media sources. The 1-year-old dog was spotted limping outside an office building on Oct. 26 and reportedly fed “meat buns” and dog food. Her rescuers took care of her immediate injuries, mostly on her feet, then took to social media in hopes of finding her...

    Aren’t weddings the absolute best? It’s a celebration of two people who love each other, where there are plenty of smiles and laughter, and for the two lovebirds, it’s also the most beautiful day of their lives. Justin Lunsford, a wounded veteran, was about to marry his spouse Carol Balmes and they were incredibly excited for their big day. One important aspect of the wedding ceremony for the groom is choosing who will be the best man, and this veteran already had a very special someone in mind. Lunsford chose his loyal service dog and best friend, Gabe, to be...

    LINDSEY VONN'S two dogs had to be taken to the vets after they chased a PORCUPINE. The Olympian's beloved pooches were left with sharp quills impaled in their faces after the incident. Vonn, 35, regularly shares pictures of her three dogs called Lucy, Leo and Bear. Lucy, who once joined her on the ski slope, managed to keep out of trouble this weekend. But Vonn's other two dogs decided to try their luck against a porcupine - and soon regretted it. The three-time Winter Olympic medallist - who dated Tiger Woods for two years - shared a photograph of the...

    Dogs are notorious for seeing fences as a challenge that must be met at any cost. Embarrassing photos — which ended up on TV and social media — show the hound was in the process of cramming itself under the fence when it realized its rump was too big to squeeze through. It took four men to pull off the rescue, including one with a drill and one kneeling to comfort the frightened dog. Multiple photos shared by the department suggest the dog emerged from the predicament without injury, including one that showed a firefighter holding it in his arms...

    Who Is Saint Rocco? Saint Rocco was born of noble parentage about 1340 A.D. in Montpellier, France. At birth it was noted that he had a red cross-shaped birthmark on the left side of his chest.

Soon after, San Rocco distributed his wealth among the poor and took a vow of poverty. San Rocco dressed in the clothes of a pilgrim and departed...
