A Little Common Sense, Please?

There is so much about this story that I find ridiculous that it baffles me where to start…. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/03/01/fresh-prince-of-bel-air-theme-song-school-lockdown_n_2789547.html?utm_hp_ref=fb&src=sp&comm_ref=false

Want to hit something? Read this!

Let’s face it – there are about 110 million things that most women would rather do with their day than read an article about how to strike at something. Trust me, I get it!  And it is EXACTLY that reason that I am encouraging women to read my article about that very subject! Why? Well, […]

Room 216! Don’t Forget – 216!

After 34 years of being involved in an industry that is so squarely focused on personal safety, you would think that very little would surprise me anymore.

Car Maintenance = Smart Self Defense

Car Maintenance = Smart Self Defense

Now, some may think I have lost my mind posting things about car maintenance, however, I assure you that I haven’t. (Well, at least not more than usual!) It’s pretty simple, a woman stranded on the side of the road with a broken down car is as much of a target as a woman standing […]

For thousands,  Spring Break begins with travel! This time of the year the highways are PACKED with folks heading toward their “break”. Many of them are teens – sometimes heading out all on their own to enjoy parties, sunshine and a week of fun.  Whether it’s you or someone you care about hitting the road, […]
