One of my neighbors posted this question on our neighborhood social media web site:

"Original post by xxxxxx Richards from Kanatenah (1 reply):
My husband and I are wanting to switch to a local company for our security system. Any suggestions for a local company? Thank you! "

I was going to reply:

"FAL has a manufacturing facility in Columbia but they only sell to the government.. nearest I know of is Ruger which has a plant in North Carolina not far away".

But something in the back of my mind told me to leave it alone.

I got kicked out of my neighborhood social media site because I voiced my opinion.

Gee, who'd have thought shooting a fellow who steals your work truck would upset so many folks. :twisted:

Our local neighborhood social media site seems to be mostly about people finding stray dogs.

Oh yeah...one lady reported that someone rang her doorbell at 2:15 AM and she called the police. I'm not making that up.

Our HOA has a social media site.
It reads like a bunch of old grandmas complaining
about hip pain and wishing their neighbors would die.
I stay away. 1/2 of them are crazy and the other 1/2 aren't sane.

As mentioned, mostly lost or found dogs and cats... which I think is a good thing.
But now they allow advertising which really gripes me.

I also love living where I do, in the Lakeview Mountains outside of Hemet California. My nearest neighbors aren't within shouting distance. No one is forced to use a local social media site.

I keep an eye on it for actual news, like if I see smoke, where the fire is located or what mail boxes are being broken into. Or what cars are being broken into...things like that. Things like that are happening in the more populated parts but I still like to know what is going on and how close it's getting to me.

Here we recently had a sad posting where a lady lost her dog to a mountain lion.

We have them in my area also. After my last dog of about 12 years disappeared I never got another one as much as I've wanted to all these years.

Cary, I feel for you. You might consider getting a boxer dog, or better yet, a pair. They are loyal and protective of the family, especially kids and ladies and do not have the bad reputation of pit bulls. Even a mountain lion would think twice about going after one, well alone two boxers, as they are awesome fighters when necessary.

I had a 75 pound male that would let little neighborhood kids play and climb all over him but one time drove off a man threatening my wife.

Well, even if I did get a bada$$ dog, there is still the chance that he would drag himself into the yard all cut up and bleeding one day. For me, that would be worse than him just disappearing. I'd rather think there is a happy dog living someplace safe than here.
