And thanks to Carol and Okey for hosting a drop-in social at their house yesterday. It was good to see everybody. We'll probably have another block party in the spring as well.
This site reviewing home security systems was brought to my attention:
I haven't dug too deeply into it and it doesn't seem to cover some of the local providers, but you may find it helpful.
We are going to have a Parkshore III block party! The tentative date is April 21st from 4-6pm. Paper products will be provided, but food and drink is BYO / Potluck (everyone please bring a dish to share). Hope for good weather and come out to meet your neighbors! If you have tables / chairs, it would be great to bring them. More info will be disseminated before the event.
The city has placed 2 black boxes on Windsor. The boxes will be used to count the number of cars on Windsor as well as the speed at which the cars are traveling. They will use this info to determine if we need speed bumps. The city has received a call from a resident in our neighborhood requesting speed bumps due to speeding cars on Windsor Drive. Please drive slowly in Parkshore III.
I just noticed that Ed Droge's book, Charleston Miracles, is on Amazon with a free kindle price today. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009995MVK/ref=cm_cr_notf_fhv_prd
I don't know how long it will last, but there you go!
Run, Hide, Fight - Surviving an Active Shooter Event – Training Video
An Active Shooter Event - whether it be in a business environment, a shopping center, or a school - requires immediate action by those present to survive until Law Enforcement can arrive.
I think things are working again.. let me know if they aren't..
A neighbor found a few empty wallets in her bushes this weekend. It looks like they may have been taken from a parked car. Don't make it easy for the bad guys, and if you see something, call the cops.
Good news -- we found Peter's helicopter deep in a bush. Thanks to everybody who kept an eye out for it.
If anyone finds a helicopter that has red on it and "Gryphon" (about 1 foot long and 6-8 inches high), Peter G on Paddington Circle will be forever grateful. He got it for his birthday and lost it flying around the neighborhood. It might drop out of a tree into a bush or something. Thanks!!
