Don’t Be a Victim During the Holidays

Don’t Be a Victim During the Holidays

I love this time of the year. For me, the Christmas season IS “the most wonderful time of the year,” filled with fun, family and happy memories. However, with the holiday season upon us, we also need to remember that this is a high crime time of the year. Fortunately, you can do things to protect yourself; easy precautions that can help greatly reduce your chance of becoming a victim during the holidays. While I have always preached “situational awareness” it has never been as important as it is in today’s...

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! I love this time of the year. From Thanksgiving to Christmas, so many things happen that make this a special time. I am blessed that I enjoy family get togethers and spending time with my loved ones. Today, seeing smiles and hearing laughter, catching up on the goings-on in peoples’ lives, and remembering fun and funny times from the past, and of course, watching Cowboys football, are all things I look forward to each year. I also love this time of year when it seems the good parts of people often come out. The...

Exercise Your Right to Vote!

Exercise Your Right to Vote!

The statistics are always disappointing. So many people in our society fail to exercse their right to vote on a regular basis. You have heard the saying, “If you don’t vote, you lose the right to complain.” While I agree with the sentiment, I fear that it almost helps perpetuate the lack of engagement that so much of our voting eligible public demonstrates. So how many people are actually voting? Accoring to FairVote.org, it depends on if it is a preseidential election year. Of course, that only happens every 4 years, but we...

Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Posted by on Oct 6, 2014 in Community, Domestic, Family | Comments Off on Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Domestic Violence. As private investigators, we often see the ugly side of people and our world. But certainly one of the most upsetting situations we encounter is violence in the home. If there is one place where we should all feel safe and protected, it is in our home. This is one of the primary reasons we at Owens Investigations want to help promote Domestic Violence Awareness Month each year during the month of October. Sometimes I think we should find a different term. Domestic Violence sounds somewhat clinical. Wife beater. Child abuse....

Motivational Passwords

Motivational Passwords

In the last several months there has been lots of news about passwords. Accounts hacked, entire store customer databases stolen. But recently I heard an idea that I have never heard before, and I think it’s one worth considering… having helpful passwords. So what is a motivational password? A motivational password is one that accomplishes more than one task at a time. Of course, we want our passwords to secure access to whatever account or system with which we work. But what if the act of typing that password could reinforce for...

How I Can Get a Key to Your House

How I Can Get a Key to Your House

How hard would it be for me, or someone else, to get a key to your house? It has just become a little easier, and the “how” may surprise you. We’ve all seen the movie or TV show where the unprincipled person with a set of lock-picking tools in their pocket can defeat a door lock in under a minute to gain access. In the more flamboyant spy movies, you’ve seen the ruse where the attractive woman distracts a man, while the accomplice slyly picks his pocket, gaining access to his keys, rushes them out to a van, makes a...

Tax Free Weekend

Tax Free Weekend

August 8 – 10, 2014 Each year, the state of Texas has a sales-tax free weekend, with the intended purpose of allowing parents to buy clothes and school supplies in preparation for the upcoming school year. But it’s really bigger than that now.   The law exempts most clothing, footwear, school supplies and backpacks priced under $100. Stores all over the state will have sales going on during the three days as well, meaning that you can find some good deals if you are looking. Keep in mind, for every $100 you spend, you will save on...

Irving Laughs by the Lake

If you are looking for something fun to do, that won’t cost you a lot of money, consider attending Irving Laughs By the Lake, an evening of comedy and music located in Las Colinas along the banks of Lake Carolyn. It all is happening this Friday night, July 18. Admission is FREE (always my favorite price), and features open lawn seating, so you will want to bring a blanket or a lawn chair. They will be selling food and drinks, and of course it is July in Texas, so hot weather is the norm, but the weather forecast currently says that we...
