Well, a jar of scorpions would not work fast enough...

From what I have learned in the past 9 years of observation here is that people are afraid of dogs...okay that works if you live here, just adopt a pup from the HS...

You can purchase (or course not here) motion detectors that sounds like nasty dog barking...you can also purchase posters of dogs that would tear you limb, from limb to post around your property.

I am fond my Hickory Stick about 2 inch thick, about 3 feet in length, with a leather strap, and of course, no girl should be without her machete.

I'm now thinking about installing a clothesline...escape is futile.

The house I used to rent which is next door to the one I am in now has a separate circuit box with breakers mounted on the wall. Out of this breaker box comes two 110 volt lines. Those two lines, one hot and one ground, are hooked up to the front and rear doors. Anyone touching those doors when the breakers are on will get a nice shock. Possibly lethal. I couldn't get away with that in the states but was told that is a common practice in Mexico. I never turned the breaker on as I was afraid I would forget it was on and open the door myself. I guess you would call that a booby trap. It doesn't do anything for your yard.

valli, the copy of the report was surely the cost incurred for you.
i have filed in my time here about 6 demandas and was never charged. all were thefts or bodily harm (from the bike accident). they were charging for the copies. had to be. thanks for clearing my doubts on why you were charged for a free service. thought they were doing a gringa charge or something.

Download a copy of greenshot (greenshot.org) Pull up the picture of your bike (or anything on your screen) snap it and save it under a new name as a jpg file. Will greatly reduce the size of the file so you can upload it or copy it into a document. My camera takes HUGE size pictures that are great for reproduction but worthless to upload any where. Just a thought

There’s a viewer I use called Irfanview that’s easy to use and free. You can download it here: Irfanview Download on Cnet

If you open the pic, and hit CTRL-R, you can resize the pic.

Select “650” in the width and the rest updates automatically.

Do a “save as” and put in the file name and you’re done.
