It seemed like only yesterday: RHS class of ’83 Reunion

Last night I celebrated with 65 other friends and alumni of the Raritan High School Class of ’83. The one question that everyone asked was “Where has the time gone ?” 25 years is a long time and by the look of it, the time was quite friendly to many of us in attendance.

A special shout outs to Pamela (Wright) Anderson who did the work necessary to put it all together and Rob Petrane and his band for providing the music. You guys were great!
Here’s to another 25 years of health and happiness to all of my friends and fellow graduates of RHS

>I never would have thought of this

>Here is some pretty good advice that a friend sent me via email, the concept seems sound enough so I thought that it may be of service to some:

PUT YOUR CAR KEYS BESIDE YOUR BED AT NIGHT tell your spouse, yourchildren, your neighbors, your parents, your Dr.’s Office, the check out girl at the market, tell everyone you run across to put their car keys
beside your bed at night.

If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off or the car battery dies. This tip came from a neighborhood watch coordinator. Next time you come home for the night and you start to put your keys away, think of this:

It’s a security alarm system that you probably already have and requires no installation. Test it. It will go off from most everywhere inside your house and will keep honking until your battery runs down or until you reset it with the button on the key fob chain. It works if you park in your driveway or garage. If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break in your house, odds are the burglar/rapist won’t stick around… after a few seconds all the neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and sure enough the criminal won’t want that! And remember to carry your keys while walking to your car in a parking lot. The alarm can work the same way there.

This is something that should really be shared with everyone. Maybe it could save a life or prevent a sexual assault. My Mom has suggested to my Dad that he carry his car keys with him in case he falls outside and she doesn’t hear him. He can activate the car alarm and then she’ll know there’s a problem.

It would also be useful for any emergency, such as a heart attack, where you can’t reach a phone. What a GREAT idea!
