Sometimes it may seem that luck -- either good or bad -- seeks you out but your actions can influence the effect it has on you. Take for example a guy I worked with. He bought Lotto tickets and won $19 million. I didn't buy one and won nothing! At the opposite end of the spectrum were the actions of a young lady I saw at a local service station. She drove on to the forecourt then jumped out of her car, leaving it running with keys in the ignition and the door wide open. For about a minute it was an open invitation for some bad luck to come her way. Upon returning to her car she shot off through an orange traffic light while swigging on a drink. Maybe if she had a third hand she might have done up her safety belt. If anything had happened to her, I'm sure she would have put it all down to bad luck. This time of the year we can influence our luck by reminding ourselves that there are people out there who ruin the festive season with their criminal behaviour. Let's make their luck bad by denying them opportunities to steal from insecure garden sheds and homes. It's tempting to open windows for better ventilation and convenient to keep the garage or shed open while working on another part of the property, but it takes just moments for valuable items like lawnmowers and laptops to disappear. If you need to leave windows open during the night to cope with the heat I suggest fitting strong security stays as a basic security measure. If you see someone who you do not recognise behaving suspiciously on your neighbours' property take a description and call 111. We don't mind delivering bad luck to criminals!
