Re: Break-Ins

Okay, it's been awhile - but it seems like the 30pt torx is indeed a secret weapon. In an amusing update: The confessed burglar that had originally gotten off with ten years probation by rolling over on his partner in crime - has now been picked up on felony drug charges (surprise) and has a good ch...

Re: Did you know that........

May i know what is the exact meaning of this sentence? Simple, to say ".........nine out of ten people make up 90% of the population?" is completely acceptable. Whereas if I were to say "one out of ten people make up 10% of the population" I would be branded as an irresponsible lout incapable of un...

Still working.....

I only got into this business because I was too crippled up from farming and bad factory jobs to do anything active. Most days I wish for the BIG manure fork I used way back when - it would help to manage the meetings at least. So, over twenty-something years of ABAP and not yet insane. Of course, I...

Re: Break-Ins

So far it seems like a 30pt torx is the secret weapon, here we were doing silly stuff like cameras and heavy chains.

It's only been a month, maybe they haven't yet scored the right size torx from their other burglaries.

Re: Break-Ins

I'm now treating this as a science experiment. The last visit the scum-sucking-trash paid was to unbolt the aluminum cylinder heads from some old snowmobiles. I'm assuming to recycle in order to afford the latest batch of chemicals to cook the next batch of crystal meth. Question: How far are they w...

Re: Break-Ins

Just when you figure it couldn't get more stupid............ The sheriff's department investigator calls me to check and see if a small fishing boat he found was one of the items stolen from us. He texted a pic and I said no, that's not ours. When I asked why he thought it might be ours, he related ...

Re: Break-Ins

They're baaack..... It appears they have tired of our buildings, instead they hit my (now vacant) parent's place across the road. Months ago my siblings and I emptied the buildings there of the junkiest junk, plus anything we wanted to keep ourselves. Nothing like walking through the home you grew u...

Re: Break-Ins

You're right Snowy, have done all but #4. The wi-fi cameras were black-infrared. Cops said they detect them at night by using night vision when still out of range (supposedly black-infrared then stands out like neon). We could see they climbed the back side of the tree, and (I'm guessing) removed th...

Break-Ins

My wife and I live on the old family dairy farm in Minnesota. Over the last couple of years outbuildings are burglarized regularly. The first big hit they took an 8x20 foot trailer - loaded it up with various items and drove off with the whole works, about $10,000 total. These two idiots they eventu...

The Expert

I'm guessing others have probably seen this, I only saw it a couple of weeks ago.
The only change I would make is to substitute the word 'realist' for 'expert'.

Re: A new low

As far as $33/hr is concerned....
....if that ever becomes the 'norm' for our trade, I'm going back to the halcyon days of dairy farming.
(Sarcasm setting back to 'off' mode.)

Good grief, the car dealerships charge the better part of $100/hr or more around here.
