RE: Police Stops:

Rather than ever even showing your actual driver's license or insurance papers....carry photo copies of these papers in your car in a binder....show these to the officer questioning you...never give them your originals...better yet...never show your originals. I have used this method and it works by keeping me empowered.

---------------------------------

Doesn't cost more at the station and if you pull out your "cop pocket" and show them that is all you have because then they realize there is no more. I carry many scanned and JPGed full 8 1/2 X 11 pictures of my license and hand that to them. Also if your new license hasn't shown up in the mail yet you can photo shop in the expiration date and Voila your new temp. lic. - James Black

---------------------------------

A friend mentioned there is a name and telephone number for a Mexican government office that investigates reports of police corruption. The name and number can be written below the copy of your driver's license so the cop can easily see it when you hand it over.

Anyone have that name and number? We'll post it here. - Alan

RE: COMPOSTING QUESTION -

I compost at my organic garden and have shared the info with many. No smell, if it smells bad you are not doing it right. what kind of pests are you talking about. If mice I look at the pile as an attractant and then you can put out the appropriate bait or whatever and deal with them there instead of inside your house. With no pile you know you have pests by seeing them skitter across your floor. James Black, merlo4u (-at-) earthlink.net
