    Blue Hero Lights

    This was started last year in the neighborhood of a fallen officer to honor him. This year it's being asked that the entire city participate to honor all 1st responders. It'd be kinda neat if other communities would join in as well.

    I think that is a great idea. Any good links to blue lights? Maybe electric type candles (not real candles).

    It is a great idea! You can probably find blue lights in stores that sell Christmas and Chanukah decorations.

    I don't know where they got them, but several houses in the neighborhood had what looked to be electric candles with blue bulbs in the window. Others just used strings of blue Christmas lights to frame the center-most or highest window.

    At the PD, we strung blue lights in the trees outside the station.

    I will be on the look out for them! I hope I can find the electric candle kind, but the blue strings would be nice too.

    Ok, I used the normal candle lights, and switched out the bulbs for blue bulbs. I really like how they've turned out

    Cool Deal Pinki!

    I drove through Rodney's neighborhood last night, it's really neat looking. Every house on the block has some form of blue light.

    Around town I've noticed several houses have blue porch lights; they look pretty neat too.

    That must be very impressive/beautiful to see.

    on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
    expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
    brought my rifle."

    That's what I did. I've had a single blue light in a window every Christmas for the past 5 or 6 years.
    The world would be much cleaner if blind people carried brooms instead of sticks.

    At communion, when the priest says "Body of Christ", I say "Thanks, I've been working out", then I grab the cracker and run back to my seat

    An amateur practices until he gets it right. A professional practices until he cant get it wrong.

    They've got us surrounded? Good. Now we can fire in any direction. Those bastards won't get away this time.

    That is a great idea. I'm gonna get with the PIO, who's a freind of mine, and see if he can suggest something to the media.
    YOUR ATTENTION, DO I F@#%ING HAVE IT?
