Lotteries

How can you remain anonymous after winning the lottery?

Actually, your best bet is to sign the back of the ticket and put it in a safe place. Then go find yourself a good lawyer and have the attorney set up a trust with a bank. The trust will need a name. Let's name it the " BigWin Trust". Once BigWin Trust is properly set up the lawyer will have one of the bank officers present the winning ticket to the lottery agency and accept the winnings on behalf of the BigWin Trust. This is legal in the states that have Powerball. Not sure about Megamillion states. But, sign the ticket, put it in a safe place, see a lawyer, set up a trust and then keep your mouth shut and no one will ever know.

Powerball web sites states the following: "All but five states (DE, KS, MD, ND, OH) have laws that require the lottery to release the name and city of residence to anyone who asks. Other states may offer to assist you in some way, including such things as the creation of trusts. But generally, you will want to hire an attorney to review the laws in your state to see what options you might have. Photos and press conferences are up to you for most, but not all states. Check with your state lottery to see if photos or more are required. Most of the time, it is advisable to get it over with the press so that you don't have one or more reporters following you around to get that "exclusive" interview. Even if the you can keep your identity secret from the press and the public, you will have to be known to the lottery - so they can confirm that you are eligible to play and win."

Horses

Are there any places in California you can rent horses for a couple hours or a day without a guide if you have horse riding experience?

Renting horsesLimonite Riding Stables in Mira Loma, CA.

Be VERY careful about crossing the river... there IS quicksand, you and or your horse can possilby GET STUCK...I got my leg stuck the weekend of 5/22 looking for a safe place to take the horses, and had to have a friend pull me out. You must only cross where designated and when designated as safe... how do you know? ask whoever you see riding. ie. no one who owns a horse has crossed since last fall.. everyone is afraid, so if you are warned by other riders that they have not crossed, FORGET IT. Happy Trails...

Unfortunately, the Limonite Riding Stables in Mira Loma (described above in first response) is no longer in business. The only other place I know of is River Trails Riding Stables in Norco, CA:

River Trails Riding Stables

4545 Hamner Avenue, Norco, CA 92860

(where the 91 meets the I-15)

(951) 736-9800

*Daytime Rates:

$25.00 for one hour

$50.00 for two hours

Buy two hours and you get the third hour free

Non-guided (although they will escort you out to the main trail head so you don't get lost; then they let you go off by yourself)

*Nighttime rates: (call ahead and make a reservation for night horseback riding)

$30.00 for one hour

$60.00 for two hours

Buy two hours and you get the third hour free

Night Trail Rides are guided, and trotting and cantering is ok

Also this can help all the way.

Geography

Mexico
Bodies of Water

What body of water separates the Baja California Peninsula from mainland Mexico?

It's not separated completely (it's a peninsula, not an island), but the main body of water separating Baja California from the rest of Mexico is the Gulf of California, an offshoot of the Pacific Ocean. Technically I suppose you could say that the Colorado River (which empties into the Gulf of California) also separates it, but the actual state border between Sonora and Baja California is only MAINLY the Colorado River (there are places where the border deviates from the river's course), and also the Colorado River is no longer really a river or even a body of water for its entire course (it dries up a few dozen miles from the mouth of the river, and for the remainder of its historical course it's either a dry gully or a negative estuary).

What time zone is 3 hours behind California?

It depends on what you mean by "behind."

If you mean the time zone where the clock is three hours behind California, then it would be the "Eastern" time zone - when it's 7 pm in San Francisco, it's 10 pm in New York.

If you mean the time zone where it will be noon three hours after noon in San Francisco, then it's the "Pacific Ocean" time zone - when it's 7 pm in San Francisco, it's 4 pm in American Samoa. In other words, America is 3 hours "behind" San Francisco.


The time zones that are three hours behind Pacific Standard Time (UTC-8) are American Samoa Standard Time and Niue Time (UTC-11).

The time zones that are three hours behind Pacific Daylight Saving Time (UTC-7) are Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time, Tahiti Time and Cook Islands Time (UTC-10).

The Difference Between

What is the difference in laws between California and Texas when it comes to car repossession?

Texas

TITLE STATE: Yes SECURITY INTERESTS: Shown on title held by lien holder. LICENSE REGISTRATION: Texas State Department of Transportation, RECOVERY REQUIREMENT: As per UCC, repossession allowed without committing a breach of the peace. DOCUMENTS REQUIRED FOR LIQUIDATION: Repossession affidavit (D12-264) if Texas title; out of state repossession affidavits accepted. PLATES: Remain with the vehicle.

Below is an excellent FAQ page detailing repossession laws. It mentions a repo man does not need a license to operate in Texas, but does in Florida. I imagine California requires licensing as well. The first thing to do if your car is repossessed is call your local police department and ask if your car was repossessed, they will have a listing of what cars were repossessed and if yours is on it, the police department will tell you who repossessed it (the dealer, bank, finance company, or private repossesser) and a phone number for contact.

For example, my car was repossessed this morning, I called the local police, and they confirmed the dealer had taken it. I am only a week and a half behind, but that's all it takes.
