    Latest in anti-theft technology

    I stumbled upon this yesterday and almost ruined a good pair of pants. The condenser at this home had been stolen about two years ago.

    It may keep away thieves but the pigeons would figure out it's not real.

    Was working on a condenser when I noticed something tapping/hitting my shoe at the toe end.

    There was a space under the slab where the rattle snake lived.

    Was lucky the angle of attack was such that he penetrated the tip of the tennis shoe only.

    Got the shovel and packed the hole with dirt so I could finish and warned the customer.

    I now watch for this very carefully.

I observed...that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.”
