Holiday Safety Tip

With the Holiday season upon us, and peoples guards down, many of us become targets for vandals and criminals. Here's some holiday advice. I like to tell my 6 year old daughter that she should always be extra careful not to get hurt while she's having a good time. It's at these very moments that our guards can be caught down. Likewise, during the holiday season we're all caught up in the whirlwind of preparation, expectations, stress, fun, depression, etc.. we forget to pay attention to our environment and fall prey to those that take advantage of people. Don't forget that even though your having a good time you still need to pay attention to what's going on around you. That means that when you pull up to your house in your car, and it's dark out, take a look around before getting out, and arm yourself with something. Even if it's not mace or something intended for defense. Your keys for example. Or an umbrella. Just be aware of what's going on around you and be prepared and you'll avoid alot of potentially dangerous situations.

Why Daves Personal Safety Blog

Figured I'd write a bit about why I'm doing this thing in the first place. I created Daves Personal Safety Blog to compliment my website http://www.davesjoint.com/ . It's a way for me to communicate with my customers and get feedback on my site and the many products that we carry.
But what was the driving force behind davesjoint in the first place? Well, ever since getting a computer and going online about 5 years ago, I've been intrigued by the ecommerce field. I'm a Healthcare Profesional and have practiced as a Medical Technologist for 18 years at a well known Hospital on Long Island, New York. I have a wife and 6 year old daughter and struggle to provide for my little family just like everyone else. I've made a living in this field but really need to supplement my hard earned but low salary (like many other people in NY and accross this beautiful country we live in). Fortunately there are many things a hot blooded, capitalist can do in America to earn some extra money! And instead of getting a traditional second job at Starbucks I decided to explore non-traditional options.
I saw the huge potential in the online marketplace. I started looking in to what it would take to open up my own ecommerce website using a number of platforms, and decided on developing a website focusing on Personal Protective Devices, Personal Alarms of all kinds, and Mace Brand Products (which you can find on my site if you follow the link above). I love these products and really feel as though I'm helping people by selling these devices. I also love to give them as gifts to my friends and family. In a world where crime is really out of hand it's great to enable people to protect themelves and their loved ones. I found a great supplier and taught myself how to develop an online presence (including the development of this blog). I also have expanded into a diverse product line including Digital Gadgets, Digital Picture Frames, MP3 and MP4 Players, Personal DVD Players and much more! If you're interested in doing the same thing I can help you! Just check out Daves Web Development and let me know what you think. You can respond to my posts or email me at dave@davesjoint.com with positive or negative feedback, comments, suggestions, insults, compliments, propositions, offers, etc. Let me know what your thinking. Thanks, Dave!

Pepper Foam vs. Pepper Gel

The difference between pepper foam and pepper gel: Pepper foam shows where it is actually being sprayed on the attacker. Also, it clings to the attacker's face. The more the attacker tries to wipe the foam off, the more the foam gets rubbed into the eyes. Pepper gel works exactly like the pepper foam, yet its effectiveness is much better than the pepper foam. It is stickier and harder to remove. The gel is a little more expensive than the foam. Now, as far as the Mace Pepper Batons and the ASP Defenders go, both seem to have the same function, just under a different name. There seems to be a slight difference, however. ASP Defenders come in many different sizes while Mace Pepper Batons do not come in quite as many. They are both just as effective and usually use the same ingredients.

Man sentenced in case of LI boy shot in eye during burglary
8:48 PM EDT, October 29, 2007

MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) _ A second man was sentenced to prison Monday for his role in a home invasion that left a 9-year-old boy shot in the eye and partially paralyzed. Rasheed Watson, 22, was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison in the botched burglary that sparked a wild shootout in an Inwood home. "I believe this man belongs in jail for the rest of his life," John Henry Romano, now 10, said in Nassau County Court during the sentencing. "I would still be the same if it weren't for him."
The boy is now blind in one eye and unable to run or move his left arm. Authorities say Watson and two others broke into the home where John Henry was visiting. Watson and a second man were armed with handguns, and the trio ordered the people in the house to get on their knees and hand over valuables, authorities said. The homeowner heard the commotion from a back room and came out with a licensed handgun. The owner exchanged gunfire with the burglars, hitting Williams in the face, leg and hand. Watson fired, striking John Henry in the eye and injuring a 22-year-old man. Watson, of Patterson, N.J., was found guilty in September of robbery, assault and burglary charges. In July, Brooklyn resident Tyreek Williams was sentenced to 21 years in prison after pleading guilty to the same charges. Police are still seeking the third man.
