First strike! Not a bad idea for gals...or maybe even guys...

This is something I never had thought of, but I should have. If you live anywhere near where there are wasps, you have probably shot down the little red demons from long range. I know I've killed more than my fair share with pleasure!

Cowdad sent me a computer letter that I found very interesting. In the public interest I'm passing it along. Don't bother to thank me...

Home Security Spray---THIS IS NOT A J0KE!

If you don't have a gun, here's a more humane way to wreck some one's evil plans for you.

On the heels of a break in and beating that left an elderly woman in Toledo dead, self defense experts have a tip that could save lives and injury.

Val Glinka teaches self-defense to students at Sylvania Southview High School. For decades, he's suggested putting a can of wasp and hornet spray near your door or bed.

Glinka says, "This is better than anything I can teach them."

Glinka considers it inexpensive, easy to find, and more effective than mace or pepper spray. The cans typically shoot 20 to 30 feet; so if someone tries to break into your home, Glinka says "spray the culprit in the eyes".... It's a tip he's given to students for decades. It's also one he wants everyone to hear. If you're looking for protection, Glinka says look to the spray.

"That's going to give you a chance to call the police; maybe get out. Maybe even save a life.

Wasp Spray -
A friend who is a receptionist in a church in a high risk area was concerned about someone coming into the office on Monday to rob them when they were counting the collection. She asked the local police department about using pepper spray and they recommended to her that she get a can of wasp spray instead.

The wasp spray, they told her, can shoot up to twenty feet away and is a lot more accurate, while with the pepper spray, they have to get too close to you and could overpower you. The wasp spray temporarily blinds an attacker until they get to the hospital for an antidote. She keeps a can on her desk in the office and it doesn't attract attention from people like a can of pepper spray would. She also keeps one nearby at home for home protection. Thought this was interesting and might be of use.


  1. And, for those really pesky bandits, blind them and then spray them with hair spray ignighted with a cigarette lighter. The only problem with that is they tend to set the house on fire as they drop and roll on carpets. But, if you have insurance what the heck. MUD

  2. Great tip. I have two daughters and although both have fired a gun, I think this is a great idea.


Don't cuss nobody out, okay?
