Just when I thought unscrupulous scam artists had thought of everything already they now have come up with a new way to steal our identities and money! Many airline passengers were scammed recently when they were stranded by cancelled flights. As if that was not enough frustration for passengers they got to the lines to reschedule flights there were impossibly long waits.

In a flash you can lose all of your possessions and even your life during a fire. You can also destroy the life of a neighbor. According to the National Fire Protection Association, more than 26% of reported fires in 2016-2020 occurred in homes. In addition, 75% of civilian fire deaths and 74% of the reported injuries were caused by home fires. Over that same time period as a whole, cooking was the leading cause; and smoking was also tops on the list. It can take just 30 seconds for a small flame to turn into a major blaze, according to the Department of Homeland Security.
