Choosing the Right Home Security System

The bad news is that crime statistics, death, injuries, home intrusions, and loss of property continue to rise. It is hard to believe, but according to FBI statistics a burglary occurs every 15 seconds in the United States. The good news is that there has never been a time when such a variety of quality security equipment has been available, and at such affordable prices. Let's fight back! When talking about home security equipment, one size does not fit all. Security equipment must be tailored to meet the particular needs of each house or company.

How to Choose a Rocking Chair

Do you sometimes find yourself wishing that your favorite TV chair can also be a rocking chair? Is there a new baby in the family that you wish you can sing to sleep in your arms while sitting comfortably yourself? Does your idea of unwinding after a long day's work include reading a book by the fire in the winter or just contemplating the outside scenery in the summer? American fondness for rocking chairs If you answer yes to any one of these questions, then you are not alone. A growing number of Americans either own a rocking chair which has become a member of the family or think of buying one.

Since then, owning a rocking chair has become a distinctly American preoccupation, with most Americans, including some of America's famous presidents, showing great fondness for their rocking chairs - whether the...

ShoppingnYard Sales for Your Next Piece of Treasures

Buying furniture pieces at yard sales offers many options, but you must look closely to know what you're getting. Are you interested in trying your hand at some creative furniture painting? If you don't already have an old piece of furniture to practice on, shopping yard sales is the best way to come up with a piece. If you are buying the yard sale furniture for the sake of practicing your creative idea, buy away! If you are looking for a particular piece to use, take time to look the furniture over to make sure you are getting a solid piece at a good deal. For instance, if you want to buy a small dresser for a guest room and want to give it a country look, your first concern should be the stability of the furniture. You can give almost any style the look you want, as long as the furniture is sturdy and in good condition. Look to see if any of the wood is buckling or if the piece has any deep scratches that can't be sanded out. If you want it to have an old look, the scratches might not matter so much to ...

In a recent survey by Furniture/Today, a leading trade publication, more than half of consumers in the market for a new sofa were replacing one that was 10 years old or more. If you are one of those consumers - or soon will be - here are some tips on how to choose your next sofa wisely. According to Paula Hoyas, vice president of upholstery merchandising for La-Z-Boy, it is important to pay careful attention to the quality elements that give a piece its lasting power.

Bandits use gas-powered saw to break into safes at AT&T stores

GALLATIN, Tenn. - At least three police agencies in Tennessee are on the look out Tuesday for bandits who broke into AT&T stores in Knoxville, Gallatin and Franklin. The alleged thieves pry open the door with a crowbar and use a gas-powered cutting saw to break open lock boxes. It happened in Gallatin last Sunday at the AT&T store on Nashville Highway. Store surveillance shows two men wearing gloves and baseball caps enter the store and run directly to the back room. Within moments, they start up the gas-powered saw and begin chewing up the metal lock that keeps thousands of dollars in both cash and electronics locked away. A smoke alarm sounded, alerting local firefighters, who then notified police. The men were inside the store for about 5 minutes and ultimately got away with $15,000 worth of laptops, tablets and smartphones Detectives told News 2 the two men closely resemble the bandits caught doing the same thing at eight AT&T stores near Edgewater, Florida.
