Thanks Chris...I would also point out that that means batteries too if you have an inverter with the batteries outside make sure thay cant be cut or disconnected......even if you have a cage or something to stop the batteries being stolen take some time to look and make sure the cables cant be cut with wire or bolt cuttersNice Skippy1. That issue about security lights that cannot be tampered with ... that one caught us once. Make very sure that your backup electricity supply (inverter / generator) cannot be cut off. It is a very weird sense if your electricity goes out when it really should not, and you know with an absolute certainty there are burglars around.
mountainannie - delincuencia in Spanish does mean full-blown, hard core crime. It is not the exact equivalent of delinquency in English, which means less serious/juvenile crime.One of the things that would be useful is if the press would stop referring to what is happening as "delinquencia" which where I come from is sort of like stealing hub caps and putting graffitti up on walls and treat armed robbery as hard core crime.
REALLY--- It has been bothering me terribly, There should be such an uproar about this...crime wave.. which is really killing some of the areas....mountainannie - delincuencia in Spanish does mean full-blown, hard core crime.

Although not quite a false cognate, there is a different nuance.
No - I just spend a lot of time talking with the guys who walk around from the CREA Hogar which is the only drug treatment program in the country and even they make no distinction between marijuana and cocaine and crack. It is simplistic and naive and completely ill informed.Do you have access to very high circles in this society?
Read the sticky johnsantodomingoVery interesting to read all this advice on security. Maybe dr1 could set up a seperate forum for security. Just an idea.
