Uplifting Post

Ok. I told you that getting today's earlier post off my chest would get me ready to have more "uplifting" posts, so when I saw this news story, I just had to pass it along. Hopefully, you will be as "uplifted" as I was!

DETROIT (AP) - The metal underwire in a Detroit woman's bra is being credited with deflecting a bullet fired at her during a break-in at a neighbor's home.

Detroit police Officer Leon Rahmaan says the 57-year-old woman apparently looked out her window Tuesday when one of three men fired the shot.

He says the slug smashed through her window pane before hitting the bra's underwire. It did not penetrate her skin.

Police say she may have gone to the window after a burglar alarm at the house next door sounded. Her neighbor was not at home at the time.

The suspects drove away after the shooting.

Public Service Announcement (part two)

Ok. I got stalled out. I will admit it! I had good intentions of doing massive amounts of research on the topic of titling your car, house and other worldly possessions in a manner that is best for everyone.

I failed.

Here is my thought process: I don't want to have to worry about someone having the power to take away ownership of my home. Court battles are long and slow moving. Homelessness should never have to enter into my thought process. Insurance, probate and everything else aside, I need to know that I will have a place to sleep at the end of the day and that is safe from court battles.

Whew! Now that is off my plate of things to write about. Uplifting blog posts should be along again soon!
