At approximately 9:55 A.M. on February 12, 2014, the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call for a burglary in progress in the 3600 Block of Burton Trail in unincorporated Crystal Lake.

That is downright unsettling! I hope they locate who broke into that house. Guess I'll answer my door from now on so people know there's someone inside.

No, don't feel you need to. Instead, practice a deep angry voice and go to the door and yell, "Who is it??!" It has the same effect and keeps at least a door between you. Women tend to think we always have to be nice, polite and pleasant. We don't if someone's motives are in question.

LOL! I didn't mean I would actually open my door...! My big dog speaks for me! ha Thank goodness the women I know have brains and do not fit in that category of being cowed into being polite and pleasant when they need to be the opposite.
