I confess that one of the things that they suggest that you do, leaving toys outside, I get after my kids about.

You can do that too when you are away by using timers to turn on and off lights, radio, etc. so that it seems that someone's at home.

I was listening to a radio show who talked about people who are at home during the day.

I think we're pretty much okay - phew!

I only take money from ATMs I know are secure, and usually these are the ATMs in the bank building with the banks CCTV in full view and a guard nearby. My passwords and my PINs are long. The Mac even has two layers of security - there's very long password to get through the first layer (it's 18 letters long), then another one to get to my account (which is only 9 letters long.) None of the passwords are something that are obvious - names of children or family members or pets or street or city name, birth dates, house number, etc. The house security is less of a security risk since there is always someone at home.

I have to drive past my house as I leave, I always check to make sure that the garage doors are down.
