    Lol don't get me started....

    We've had our share, only a little while ago there was a theft from 2 doors away, see here https://www.jaguarforum.com/showthread.php?t=104177

    They've tried my door a couple of times in the last few years too, but no joy so far, live in a decent quiet area but then that's why they come isn't it?

    That's bad enough but my concern for our old age everywhere is that they might break in to our homes Jim.

    There's no feeling of fear in these bastards. The only thing they understand is pain and I'm considering how to apply some in the event some do break in when we're older and helpless.

    Boiling oil sounds good, as does 20,000 volts strapped to them.

    Can't fault you Jim
    All I know is it'll be either me or them, no prisoners if it comes to it. Thieving little buggers will get what's coming to them I assure you.

    We are pretty much at the old and helpless stage Jim so let me know when you come up with something.

    My main concern at the moment is sleeping through it all.

    The first precautions is a 360° riund-the-house camera and alarm system with a powerful horn that will wake the banshees and a couole of panic buttons to wear round our necks where we can press them at any time.

    I intend to get a couple of quotes when I start feeling feeble.

    That will give me time to setup the add-on pain inflicters and demobilisers.

    A sleeping gas that will knock us all out until the cops get there might be a worthwhile sacrifice to nail the bastards.

    Any suggestions?

    I do love dogs payno, especially alsatians. The problem is we've not stayed in one place long enough so far.

    One day, I hope to have one.

    Maybe a Jag-oo-ar too!

    But I must not consult wifey, you saw what happened with the X Type. Now we're stuck with a Baby Merc with a gearbox fault.

    Could leave sleeping pills by the back door with a glass of water.

    I thought a bucket of Sulph under an open window might work but the fumes keep you awake all night.
