picture and wedding albums are kept. Home is where
antiques and heirloom jewelry are tucked away in
boxes and drawers. Somethings you lose such as your big screen TV or that
converted pair of Nike sneakers you stood in line 6 hours
for, but some things are not replaceable. Once they are gone, they are gone
for good. So, it's no surprise that protecting your home from would be

under mats. Make it look like a vicious dog lives on site even if fluffy only
