It seems like turkeys take forever to cook. Who wants to stand in front of the oven and stare at it? It’s not like you have to do anything except baste it once in a while. Much more fun to go to the neighbors’ and watch the game, or have a snowball fight outside with the kids.
But leaving the house while a turkey – or anything – is cooking is a great way to start a fire.
So if having your house hosed down by the local fire service isn’t one of the fun things on your to-do list this holiday season, read our latest blog.
Minnesotans have three options when applying for new driver’s licenses or identification cards. Determining which type of card works best depends on what a person needs to use the card for. Those applying for a REAL ID or Enhanced card should plan to bring more documentation than is required for a standard driver’s license or ID. To apply for a REAL ID, Minnesotans will need to present the following documents in person:
• One document proving identity, date of birth and legal presence in the United States, such as a passport or certified copy of a birth certificate.
• One document proving social security number.
• Two documents proving current residency in Minnesota. Examples include a valid driver’s license or ID card, a cancelled check or a credit card statement.
Here is the full list of accepted documentation for REAL ID.
