Stupid Common Sense

I guess this is meant to be a little Public Service Announcement about Home Security

at lunchtime yesterday i came home to find the front door was tampered with, my key didn't work and the door woudln't open
I called the police...yes someone broke into our house

Fortunately, we had our nice tiffany's wedding rings all itemized on our insurance...because that's the main thing that was taken. 
Also, having a safe doesn't do much good if they keys are in it (yeah stupid we know). They didn't take our birth certificates/passports/marriage license/ss cards out of the safe, but they easily could have written everything down. Same as with all our files that they went through in our UN-locked file cabinet. 

Moral of the story: take a minute or two to write down an inventory of your jewelry, important docs, guns or anything else easily pawnable and give it to your insurance company. Good Idea to take pictures of these things too. Then, make sure you LOCK those things that can be locked.

x-posted a couple places, sorry if you see it more than once
