Security Cameras; Neighborhood Watch

Intown South West communities ban together, fight and reclaim their neighborhoods!   Security Camera’s, the hot topic and weapon of choice, are working in conjunction with  faithful “granny in the window” techniques to help deter crime and police catch a thief.  While some remain skeptical of the new technology being introduced, others welcome with open arms.  All agree something must be done to deter criminal activity which is usually higher around the holiday season.

One thing is clear- crime is not taken lightly in these neighborhoods.  Neighborhood walks, Private security, foot patrol and reports on specific activity is in effect. We are watching YOU- watching us.

Criminals beware, Granny is watching, and for what granny can not see… “Smile, you’re on candid camera!”

*Special thanks to Chen of Beecher-Donnelly Community Association for his assistance, time and tutorial in helping West End go high tech!! 

All West End, Westview, Beecher-Donnelly, Booker T Washington and Asheview Heights residents interested in participating please contact me  or comment  for further details on how to get involved and your system.  Your inquiry will be sent to appropriate public safety officer, association chairs. Additional tutorials and presentations will be arranged.

Jazz in the Parlour…

that title reminds me of Brooklyn…in my last home (my NY home) we had a “Parlour” .  This room, in many brownstones would have the baby grand piano… I didn’t have the piano but I had/have many Miles, Etta, Ella, Billie and Coltrane records.. that’s right- records!! (ok, ok…I do have some on CD also-lol)

…Which reminds me, I’m looking to purchase a piano- a baby grand.  I  was advisedto keep CraigsList and Freecycle.org on watch- but I’ve only seen uprights offered.  Please keep an eye out for me….maybe I can barter for one, I have kids that can do yard work, ages 7 & 4..-nothing wrong with a little child labor for musical enjoyment, right?  😉

Anyway……

This Sunday- there will be Dinner and  “Jazz in the Parlour” ( wonder if Khe-Khe’s will provide the food- I’m SO there if they will… have you had their sweet potatoes? manmmmmm)
