LOL... I'ma small town girl and my hubby has lived all over big cities and small. I NEVER lock my doors...He ALWAYS locks them. Its one of those things we can't agree on. :roll: I get frustrated when I go to the driveway and the car/truck is locked and he gets upset when they aren't and goes and locks them all behind me...lol

Our closest neighbor is 1 mile away...I always as him if he thinks that the Chickens are gonna make a break for it or if the Coyotes are gonna carjack him...lol

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

My dad doesn't lock his car doors either. At one time, we had these reckless kids that lived up the hill from us who would periodically break into cars and rummage through glove boxes for cash or anything else quick and slightly valuable. My dad got tired of them scratching the windows with their metal coat hangers and messing with all his stuff. Luckily, they never broke a window. But he eventually just left everything unlocked, took everything out of the car, and would leave the glove box wide open.

I, on the other hand, installed an alarm on my car with the transponder system that goes off beeping and vibrating on my keychain if someone triggers my alarm. I like to keep my radar detector, a few CDs, a phone charger, etc in my car so I need to have it locked. I do always remove my stereo faceplate though. I find that simply having the little red blinky light deters thieves most of the time.

while we are known for our harsh hot climate, we also have rather harsh winters in certain parts of the country. theres the middle east coast and a bit further down from there that is neck deep in snow 6 months of the year and many other places where the mercury drastically drops in the winter time. the night before last it was -1C outside my mums house and it isnt even winter yet. i was here 2 years ago and it reached -5C here so it isnt all sunscreen and beaches :)

so just because its australia doesnt mean we dont get cold weather ;) agreed its not as bad as that xmas i spent in new york but when your blood is water thin from living your life in the heat, any form of cold gets ya. im used to the tropics as thats where i live so this desert weather gets me. super hot in summer and super cold in winter

i guess its kinda like everyone over there who whinges about the heat...come and spend a week in the outback in the middle of summer and then you know what heat is all about lol a few years back bourke (an outback town) experienced heat around 52C (i think thats something like 125F but im not sure
