Securing Items On Your Porch/Backyard?

“Dear PoPville,

Has anyone’s neighbor recently acquired a chair very much like the one in the attached photo? Our second chair managed to disappear sometime between 10:30 last night (Wed, Jun 15) and 9:00 this morning (Thu, Jun 16). We live in Columbia Heights, just a few blocks from the Red Derby.

Thanks for keeping an eye out.”

If anyone sees the chair email me at princeofpetworth(at)gmail and I’ll tell the OP where the chair was spotted.

“Dear PoPville,

I just purchased a new Weber gas grill. Perhaps foolishly, I bought a nice one. A really nice one. Now I’m afraid someone will steal it, or strip it for parts. It’s on our back deck close to the backdoor light, I keep it covered, and I have a big dog. Do you or your readers have any suggestions for what else I can do to deter theft? Thanks!”

I know bicycles get stolen a lot but can you use a bike lock to attach it to the deck? Has anyone heard of a grill getting stolen?
