Seriously, can it get any worse that this?  I think it will get worse.  Most of you know that unemployment is a major problem in Michigan and on top of that some people have exhausted their unemployment benefits.  So, if there are no jobs and no unemployment benefits then what are people expected to do to survive?  More importantly how are the rest of us going to survive? 

Here are some safety tips:

1.  Look around as you enter and exit your home.  Be suspicious of anyone who is looking back at you or sitting in a car.

2.  Confirm the identity of a stranger prior to opening your door.

3.  If you are approached by someone who makes you uncomfortable and you have something in your hand then drop it and run.  The added weight could slow you down.

Holiday Party Safety Tips

30 Dec

By Carla M. Thompson

1.  Before heading those parties fill up your gas tank before it gets dark.

2. Don’t post your holiday plans on any social networks because then everyone will know when you’re not home.

3.  Program the ICE (in case of emergency) contact, the phone number of a roadside assistance company and a taxi cab company into your cell phone.

4.  If you are going to a holiday party venue without a parking lot then use valet! It is worth the extra money.

5.  When you get to the holiday party watch your drink. If you walk away from it for any reason just get another one!
