I now find generic brands a waste of money. A generic label's can of tuna fish may cost less than a brand name label, but they only fill the can halfway. Same with a box or tissues, or a roll of toilet paper. The portions and amount are half of a regular brand.

Feel good about all the good things you do in your life, and if you do things wrong, take those actions and thoughts, hide them away like animals often do when they are dying and hope nobody imitates them.

In the United States, be aware of the "$10,000 Rule" when making cash transactions at banks and gambling casinos. If you have a large amount of cash you want to deposit in your bank account, it is better to make a series of smaller deposits than one large deposit. If you exceed $10,000 (I'm talking cash, not checks) the bank employee is required to fill out an SAR (Suspicious Activity Report) and submit it to law enforcement for review. Just spread the smaller deposits out over a period of time to avoid attracting attention to yourself.

Casinos have a similar rule. If you hit it big at a gaming table and have more than ten grand in chips and are ready to go to the cashier cage, just cash in amounts significantly less than 10,000. It helps if you have a friend with you so they can cash in some of your chips for you. Then go back several hours later after the employee shift change to cash in more.

Of course, it is perfectly legal to deposit large amounts of (legitimately earned) cash in your bank account but it will arouse suspicion with law enforcement and they will check you out. To avoid that, make smaller transactions.

Back in 1991 I received a letter from the FBI asking me what I did for a living after I made such a transaction. I learned from that experience.

Good advice for drug traffickers.

Good advice for drug traffickers.

Actually, many drug dealers are aware of the rule but foolishly make a quick series of $9,900 deposits, thus triggering the SARs from alert bank employees. That's how many of them get busted. They are charged with a crime known as tax structuring.

I am the youngest in a large family with oodles of nieces and nephews. I always refrained from giving parenting advice to my siblings who NEVER hesitated to "advise" me about child rearing. After having had enough of the unsolicited counsel, I would smile sweetly and retort:

"When you become a parent, it becomes apparent." They thought this was quite clever and stopped bugging me. Amen!

When you really know you are on the right cause or venture with love in your heart, don't ever let somebody change your mind and get you off the track, for such an event would be the ultimate tragedy.

If you live or work in an area that has frequent robberies of muggings, it's a good idea to carry a "dummy" wallet in your pocket that has 20 or 25 dollars cash in it, but no IDs or credit cards (if you'd rather not carry a weapon for self defense). If you are confronted by a mugger demanding cash you can hand over the dummy wallet with the 20 bucks cash in it. Most low level crooks are glad to get a small amount rather than nothing at all (almost always to get their drug fix for the day) and you can avoid the crime escalating to violence and can also avoid the hassle of canceling/replacing credit cards and your license. I'll gladly hand over 25 bucks rather than risk getting hurt. Of course, he may still try to hurt you but if he gets some money from you (which was his goal) he'll be less likely to do so.
