Not a problem. I'm old enough that I have been burglarized before. I learned what was important then. Now I have a burglar alarm. That keeps all but the most serious at bay. I also make it clear that I leave it on.

About 4 years ago, our next door neighbor came home from church on Christmas Eve. His house had been up for sale for several months. He found that someone had taken everything that wasn't nailed down, including all the Chirstmas gifts. The thieves pulled up in a moving van and loaded everything up in broad daylight. Nobody thought it was unusual.

I asked him about his alarm. He said, "I have been leaving it off so the realtors could show it to their clients." One of the "clients" had noticed the alarm was off, and they sent their gang over to gut the house.

Sounds like Dejuva from when I lived in Vegas!!

In 1994 the 3 bedroom apartment I shared with 2 roommates was completely emptied by thieves....Best guess is a friend of a friend of one of us scoped the place out during a party or get together, figured out our schedules, then BOOM...Took it all.

They even took all the food out of the fridge!

I was heartbroken...I lost everything...Juggling gear, 4 puppets, photo's and momento's from my time in Vegas (including autographed pics of me with several of the BIG names in Vegas)...

I had taken the time to collect a $5 chip from EVERY Casino on the Strip and have them mounted on a large velvet covered board and framed...

Gone.

Any way....Hope you are doing well Bill and your house didn't suffer any damage.

Take care pal.

Burglars are especially low on the evolutionary scale. I was burglarized in 1980, when silver was at its peak. We didn't have much, but we did have a set of silverware that was worth about $20 K, and I had a couple of musical instrumnents that were valuable.

It taught me a lesson, though. We have replaced everything we lost. It took a while, but we did it.

Bill- when will your wands be available again?
Never criticize someone else until you have walked a mile in their shoes. Then, when you do criticize them, you will be a mile away from them and you will have their shoes.

I think so. I am, for sure. If you have one, feel free to sell it to him, unless you want a rarity. There are about 3 dozen of them, tops.

That would be the GoldenRod™ Lite. There are even fewer of those than the regular ones.

Those are the ones I was referring to. I really hope to have one some day - in the meantime I will have to settle for the mercury wand.

Hocus Pocus has a clearance sale going on right now. They listed the Golden Rods for $9.95 each. Are those your Golden Rods, Bill?

That probably is. I don't know whether it is the regular one or the smaller one. Give them a call and check on it. It's a good price, that's for sure!

Their clearance sale ended on Tues I think. There were TONS of tapes for only $2 each, too bad Hocus Pocus doesn't offer free shipping Smile

Since tapes are fairly light, the shipping would have been fairly inexpensive. Hocus-pocus gets a bulk shipping discount from UPS.
