Or is it Vintners? Vernors?* (Ale-8-One, maybe?)
There I was, shopping at Giant Home Improvement Store -- 'cos it's "make more bookshelves," time for some reason I'm not even real clear on, and it was my idea -- and there, close by the entrance, an alarm company's van is parked. His security system sometimes goes off with a warning as people walk by....
You may wonder, is it a polite chirp? One of those show-off alarms that runs through more and more of its repertoire the longer you linger, louder every time? Maybe the headlights and taillights flash?
It's a great big dog, who barks and leaps up at the window if you get close.
So, a tip from a guy who'd know? On car-alarms, at least, go organic!
* Now owned by one of the Big Names (and arguably the kewlest) but still darned good.
