Who Owns Your Vehicles?

Texas Department of Motor Vehicles has changed the way it handles the transfer of title for a vehicle owned by a deceased family member. In the past they only required a death certificate to transfer the title of a car, boat or RV to the nearest family member. Now they are requiring a probate if the deceased has a will.

You can, however, put all of your vehicles in the name of your trust.

How Much Privacy Do You Want?

Each culture has its own customs regarding how much and what sorts of information individuals share with others. Even within broad areas such as our own country, we have many subcultures, which dictate our comfort level with sharing information. In small towns everyone seems to know everybody else's business. City dwellers are less likely to share information with their neighbors. Some families forbid any mention of finances or troubles to "outsiders."

Technology too, affects our expectations of sharing information or not. Many seniors among us remember "party line telephone service." Neighbors would share a phone line with each home having a distinctive ring that indicated which home was being called. Two long rings, it was for the Johnsons; two shorts, it was for the Millers. One long and one short meant the call was for the Abbots. Regardless of the ring, there were always the curious who picked up their phones to see who was calling whom and perhaps even what the call was about!  Telephone users had very little, if any, expectation of privacy.
