The Best Place To Hide Money: Conversation With A Burglar

BurglarI had quite the interesting conversation this weekend with a person who happened to be a former burglar.

Consider installing a home security system in order to add an extra layer of protection.

    I have one hell of a Wheaten Terrier, barks at everything, knows who is and isn’t friendly. I feel safe with a dog, I’m able to sleep at night. And my rottweiler, a beauty (doesn’t let anyone near the house, but loves my Wheaten)!!!!!
