    10 Places to Hide a Spare Key

    I think you may be relying on sheer luck. Even in the early sixties in the rural Midwest, break-ins occurred. Plenty of people left their doors unlocked, but every few years, people would come around pretending to sell things or be part of some church outreach and use the opportunity to case houses by peering into front rooms, etc. Then you'd hear about a few places being robbed and they'd move on. The really dramatic ones would be robberies where they came with a moving truck, cleared out most everything while the family was at church or out for a Sunday drive.Cities have always been a issue.

    That's one that I like. Someone breaking in is more likely to break a window or pick a door lock than to get into one of those combo locks. There is nothing to cut open with a bolt cutter. The combo lock doesn't have to be anywhere obvious, so this is an ideal way to keep a key handy if you lock yourself out.

    11 unusual uses for straws

    What creative and excellent ideas! I'm quite impressed. I love the cord marker idea. I think the only one I can't see myself trying is the flute, and that's only because of poor musical aptitude on my part. Very clever.
