      I would much rather have snakes than mosquitoes. Snake eat vermin, whereas mosquitoes suck our blood and give us Dengue Fever, Malaria, Yellow Fever and a half-dozen other deadly diseases. Mosquitoes are about as useful and beneficial as big government.

      Hehe, nice comparison. I'm happy you feel that way. The risk are probably low enough to not worry about it to much. Even though nature is close by, there is not much wild life here. Very few birds. A few occasional mice. Not much prey for a snake around. It will likely take another year until i see another snake. It must have seen my open doors as an invitation and stepped right in. That will never  happen again. Until I can get some kind of screens installed the doors stays shut. Awareness level has gone up a few notches.

      Before I would believe there is a ten-year license, I would like to see it in writing (from LTO). I just got my license renewed, and they never said anything about the possibility of a ten-year license. Has anybody seen this in the LTO regulations?

      Hi Liquido,
      I am curious about which Chicago "burb" you lived in.  I lived in Orland Park, IL from '71 - '78. I've been in Madison, WI for the past 5 years, going back to the Philippines next year, probably in June.
