A few weeks ago, my uncle, Henry Whitley, NW 9th Street, Boca Raton, Florida 33432 was walking the family dog on a leash on a public sidewalk in the 800 block of NW 2nd Avenue when he was attacked by a Pit Bull mix. Fortunately, Henry, 72, survived the unprovoked attack and will eventually recover from his physical injuries. The dog that attacked him has been released, determined to be OK, and is now back with the family. That’s right. THE DOG IS BACK IN THE AREA! Be careful and stay alert. This happened to Henry. It could happen to anyone. The dog owner told the police the dog had previously bitten someone else. How many attacks does it take to get a dangerous dog off the streets? If you have doubts about the validity of this incident, call the Boca Raton Police, and ask them about the attack. You have a right to be safe. Demand to know! If you don’t live in the area, but know someone who does, please warn them. I don’t want this to happen to someone else. It’s scary, and it’s not pretty. Pit Bull Hater? Not me. I love animals, just not the ones that attack. Unfortunately, Pit Bulls have lived up to their reputation as being dangerous dogs that attack. Help stop these senseless attacks. Protect yourself and the ones you love. Carry a gun… a big one.

What is it with our fixation with lights? My husband, Tom, has this thing about the light switches being in their proper on/off position—which I find to be a little silly. Who cares?—while I believe that if you leave a room and you’re going to be gone for more than ten minutes, you should turn off the light. This thing about using more electricity turning lights on and off, rather than leaving them on, had to be something the electric company made up. I don’t believe that for a minute. How can you save money by keeping your house lit up? So, I go around turning off the lights, while Tom follows me checking on the switch position. I get a laugh out of this every time I think about it. Then, I found out his sister feels the same way about light switch positions as he does. She says it drives her nuts. And lo and behold, her husband is just the opposite. He’s like me. He obsesses about turning off the darn lights! He goes around turning off lights, and then she secretly does her backup check to make sure the switches are right. Did I tell you the light switch police do this in secret? Wait until Tom sees this light switch! I don't think the one in the middle is either off or on. Oops!
Yep, we all have something in common. How about you? Do you have a light fixation? If so, I would love to hear your story. I can always use a good laugh. Post it on my blog or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Enjoy your day! Ann Mullen
