Peace of Mind

I go to my daughter’s houses about twice per week and drive home around 9:30 – 10:00 p.m.  I always try to remember to take my pepper spray along just in case I would break down or have a flat tire on the way home and end up walking in the dark.

HARD Core Pepper Spray

I feel much safer having the pepper spray with me, just in case I would encounter something that was looking to hurt me.  A couple of times I forgot to get it from my walking bag or purse before I left.

POUCH of Pepper Spray

Our pepper spray is $10.00 each for the small ones pictured above. (Hard Core or Pouch of Pepper).  I decided at that price, I could lock one in our glove compartment of the car, that way I wouldn’t have to worry with making sure I remembered it.  The Peace of Mind is worth it to me to know that it is there.  I hope to never need it and most likely I won’t.  It seems when we are prepared for something, is when it never happens.  I would rather be prepared and have Peace of Mind than to be in a threatening situation and be at a loss on how to protect myself and/or others.

Safety Tips written by a Cop continued and conclusion

I started posting Safety Tips by a Cop on October 16th.  If you missed the ones before today’s posting, all you need to do is click on previous up on the right hand side and it will take you to the posts.  I have included 2 tips per day.  Today is the last two…

Today’s Tips:

9.  Another Safety Point: Someone just told me that her friend heard a crying baby on her porch the night before last, and she called the police because it was late and she thought it was weird.. The police told her ‘Whatever you do, DO NOT open the door..’ The lady then said that it sounded like the baby had crawled near a window, and she was worried that it would crawl to the street and get run over. The policeman said, ‘We already have a unit on the way, whatever you do, DO NOT open the door.’ He told her that they think a serial killer has a baby’s cry recorded and uses it to coax women out of their homes thinking that someone dropped off a baby.. He said they have not verified it, but have had several calls by women saying that they hear baby’s cries outside their doors when they’re home alone at night.

Wow! This one gives me chills!  This is when I would be happy I had my Striking Distance hanging right by the door, just in case!  It wouldn’t be hanging there long after I talked to the police, it would be in my hand until they arrived!

10. Water scam!  If you wake up in the middle of the night to hear all your taps outside running or what you think is a burst pipe, DO NOT GO OUT TO INVESTIGATE! These people turn on all your outside taps full blast so that you will go out to investigate and then attack. 

Stay alert, keep safe, and look out for your neighbors!

Please pass this on This should probably be taken seriously because the Crying Baby Theory was mentioned on America ‘s Most Wanted when they profiled the serial killer in Louisiana I’d like you to forward this to all the women you know.. It may save a life. A candle is not dimmed by lighting another candle. I was going to send this to the ladies only, but guys, if you love your mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, etc., you may want to pass it onto them, as well. Send this to any woman you know that may need to be reminded that the world we live in has a lot of crazies in it and it’s better to be safe than sorry.. Everyone should take 5 minutes to read this. It may save your life or a loved one’s life.  

I would like to give credit to this Cop that wrote these tips, but I don’t find his name.  It just says: Written by a Cop for our own safety.  We thank him for his great tips to keep us Safe and Stunningly Protected! 🙂

I started posting Safety Tips by a Cop on October 16th.  If you missed the ones before today’s posting, all you need to do is click on previous up on the right hand side and it will take you to the posts.  I have included 2 tips per day.  Only 2 more to go after today.

Today’s Tips:

7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control,  ALWAYS RUN!  The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; and even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN, Preferably in a zig -zag pattern!

Now remember, this is a cop writing these safety tips!  I am sure that he knows first hand the result of someone getting shot verses someone surrendering!  Don’t surrender!

8. As women are always trying to be sympathetic:  STOP It may get you raped, or killed.  Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked ‘for help’ into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.

Keep yourself Safe, Prepared, Always Engaged with your Surroundings and Stunningly Protected!

Today is Sunday, I normally try to write something on Sunday concerning “Soul Protection”.  The following verses are the steps to Soul Protection! 🙂  That is really more important than body protection.  It is being prepared for eternity!

The Holy Bible:  Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23, Romans 5:8, Acts 17:30 and Romans 10:9.

A simple way to ask Christ into your heart is to pray something like this:  “Lord Jesus, I recognize that I am a sinner.  I turn from my sin, and now ask you to be my personal Saviour and Lord.”

As I was writing the verses above, it made me think how nice it is that the Bible was designed in a way that we can find any verse we are looking for.  The Bible is truly an amazing book inspired by our AWESOME GOD! 🙂

Thank you for reading my blog!

Safety Tips Written by a Cop Continued…

I started these Safety Tips by a Cop on October 16th.  If you missed it, all you need to do is click on previous up on the right hand side and it will take you to the posts for Tip #s 1, 2, 3 & 4.

Tips for Today:

5. A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage:  

A.) Be aware: look around you, look into your car,  at the passenger side floorand in the back seat.

B.) If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door. Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars. 

C.) Look at the car parked on the driver’s side of your vehicle, and the passenger side.. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out.

IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. ( And better paranoid than dead.)

​​I also posted about this very subject in an earlier post.

6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot. This is especially true at NIGHT!)

If you are in a situation that you HAVE to take a stairwell, I hope you have one of our Personal Protection products with you!

Safety Tips written by a Cop continued….

I started this yesterday.  If you missed it, all you need to do is click on previous up on the right hand side and it will take you to yesterdays post which was Tip #s 1 & 2.

Tips for Today:

3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car, kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy..  The driver won’t see you, but everybody else will.  This has saved lives.

Again, our Sock it to Me Tool is a good thing to have hidden in your trunk as well as in your pocket or purse.  It would make it easier to knock out the tail lights! And attack your attacker if he decides to open the trunk again.

4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit 

(doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc. DON’T DO THIS!)

The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side, put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go.  

AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE..  If someone is in the car with a gun to your head 


 Instead gun the engine and speed into anything, wrecking the carYour Air Bag will save you. If the person is in the back seat they will get the worst of it. As soon as the car crashes bail out and runIt is better than having them find your body in a remote location. 

If you were using your LED “flashlight” (stun gun) as you should be, you would have checked in the back seat on the floor and around your car before you got in….. Just sayin….. 🙂

Safety Tips written by a Cop

I received an email that had some great safety tips in it.  I am going to post a couple a day.  I thought if it were only a couple, you would take time to read them and maybe save your life or a loved ones life!  Please read…..

1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do: The elbow is the strongest point on your body.  If you are close enough to use it, do!  

Our Sock it to me Striking Tool is a great resource as well! 😉

Sock it to me Kubotan

2. This was learned from a tourist guide.  If a robber asks you for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM.  Toss it away from you….  Chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you, and he will go for the wallet/purse. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!

Be Safe and Stunningly Protected!

An Alarming Short Story! :)

This is going to be a bit different post.  I wanted to do something different, so I thought I would try my imagination with a short short story.  My Granddaughter is all the time wanting me to tell her a story so I thought if I wrote one, I would get better at it! Practice makes Perfect Ha Ha 🙂

Once upon a time (doing good so far!  🙂  there were 5 guys, Jim, Ed, Jake, Don and Gibble.  They were so excited to finally have the day approaching that they would be spending time together in the woods archery hunting!  It was a beautiful fall day, they got all packed up and they were on their way.  Just before Jim left the house, his wife told him to take this little black alarm with him.  She said she heard about the stories of hunters getting lost in the woods and thought that it would help someone find him, if that happened to him.  Well, he thought, no way! I am not going to get lost, “Never have! I have been hunting for years!”  And I don’t plan to go to far because I am going to try out the new tree stand that was just put up!   He took the alarm anyway, it was small and light enough to carry and would keep his wife appeased.


It took them 3 hours to reach the farm where they had set there plans to hunt.  The time went by quickly; they were visiting the whole way.  As they pulled up to the farm house, Farmer Mayze was just coming up from the barn.  He was happy to see them and said the weather had been pretty bad for the past couple weeks, but thought it had taken a turn for the better now.  Farmer Mayze’s sons Little Mayze and Bryan came and were set to be their guides. They were on their way back into the woods!

Jim found his tree stand and told the guys to go on ahead, he was tired and was ready to get up in this stand and watch for the deer to come.  Maybe they would push one to him while they walked deeper into the woods.  Jim climbed up in the stand and was sitting resting and watching and listening. He had sat there for quite awhile, it was getting dusk. Just when he was thinking he should have stayed with the guys, he saw a black bear cub coming toward his tree.  He waited and watched, keeping as quiet as he could, but it seemed like his heart was beating drums in his chest.  The mother bear was coming right behind it. The cub was there at the bottom with it’s paws on the tree ready to climb up! Jim was sure hoping it wouldn’t decide to come up in his tree!

JIm thought maybe he could sneak down the other side and get away before they knew he was there.  He was real scared by now and knew a mother bear would protect her cub, even if he wasn’t going to hurt it, she would be aggressive.  On the way down the back of the tree a branch broke and down he came startling the bear cub!  It started crying and mom started growling!  Jim hit the ground so hard he felt like he might have broke something, but he wasn’t sure what!

The bear was closing in on him, he knew if he yelled, it might think that he was challenging it and start the attack.  He wasn’t sure how close the others were to him; they could still be real deep in the woods.  How he wished he would have just stayed with them.  But he didn’t, and had to do something.  Luckily he brought his bow and arrow with him down the tree and it survived the fall!  Nervously he tried to nock his arrow onto the bowstring, but was shaking so bad with the mom growling at him, he nicked the string on the way by, rendering his bow useless!

He had heard you are supposed to curl up in a ball and not move, like he was dead.  He thought he probably really would be dead soon!  Then, he remembered the alarm.  The guys might hear it, and it would be a different sound to the bear than a human yell.  He flipped the switch!  120 decibals screaming out of it.  The bear cub ran away and the mother bear went after it!  Wow what a relief!  He kept the alarm going because he did not want them to come back!

Jim tried to calm his nerves and thought about getting back into the stand, that is when he realized he had really hurt himself in the fall.  He was bleeding, but didn’t know how bad, it was dark.  Trying to think and looking at this alarm sounding, he remembered that it was also a flashlight.  He turned it on and found where he was bleeding, it didn’t look good and didn’t help that his heart was beating harder and faster than ever!  He tried to calm himself and searched around in his pockets for something that he could tie around his leg for a tourniquet.  He found something else his Independent Damsel in Defense PRO wife had put in his pocket!  It was the Wristle Bracelet.

PC-WRISTLE Paracord Bracelet

Jim unwound the 7 feet of interwoven commercial nylon paracord that the bracelet is made of and it worked perfect as a tourniquet to stop the blood flowing from him! He would have to remember to do something real nice for his wife when he got home.  Now he was hoping the guys could hear the alarm and come to his aid soon!

Deep in the woods…… To be continued tomorrow! 🙂
