Title: But they looked so innocent

We are just about done building a house just outside the city of Bacolod. We are working at the site 6 days a week, and pay some one to stay onsite 24 hrs a day to guard our construction supplies. We are about the third house to be completed in the whole subdivision. So I watched a couple of kids walking along the various lots picking up loose plastic and metals. Always having my camera ready, a snapped a few photos of them.

I watched them disappear down the street. Just last evening the police arrived and took both boys in along with two men. From what I hear, the two boys walk the subdivision on Sat. and Sun. looking for unguarded house construction sites, then alert the two men who then load up their truck with supplies. Builders beware, always have someone stay on site at all times until completion.
Oh, on second thought, I will make this statement, \"All persons are to be considered innocent unless convicted by a court of law\" and I do not mean to imply these are boys are guilty. Just wanted to give builders here a heads up.  :whistle:

We started our home build in 1999 and like you, we were the 3 rd house that was completed out of 700 homes in our gated subdivision, but our property was just adjacent to the entrance guard house so we didn\'t loose anything to thieves!
15 years later, our gated community and surrounding areas has developed nicely!

RUFUS,

What do you mean your bad? I just answered your OP and then you moved it? I can\'t even access the url link you assigned it to! It\'s says no URL Category and or I have no permission to access the page! What\'s up with that? Where did my post go?  :ohmy:

Unfortunately it seems the permissions in Chika Chika are set wrong because I too cannot see the page the link is supposed to go to, all I get is the below.

\"You do not have permissions to access this page.\"

Ya.. it was my bad aiming the thread down a different sidewalk...
I\'m not sure why no-one can access it, I can see it and the posts are there, but I\'m a modulator
I will move it again to see if that fixes it, if not I\'ll have the Almighty Gray Wolf look to see what I did
 :huh:   :oops:  :blush:

I guess you\'re still out of Red Horse eh and it\'s affecting your hand and elbow non-usage of gripping that phantom of an ice cold bottle of your favorite brew and therefore forgot how to manipulate the control buttons of this forum!  :woohoo:  :silly:  :silly:  
BTW, I don\'t see anywhere the Chika-Chika Catagory is in the index column!

That was why I wrote above that the permissions were set wrong because Chika Chika is not visible to the members in my group and apparently not visible to the members in Arts group as well, so I am going to guess it is not public and a tick of the right box in the control panel by an admin will make it so, just finding the right box to tick at times can be a pain.  :whistle:

I guess now Rufus has to move our comments we made since it\'s way off the topic!
Should have just left my OP alone! Now that\'s gone too! :woohoo:  :silly:  :silly:
