Thank You, Nationwide!

Checking Around 
NationwideAs you know from yesterday’s post, Nationwide Insurance is cancelling my homeowners policy. I found out today that I can save approximately $1,500 a year by moving all my coverage to another company. I told Kevin, and he said I should send Nationwide a “Thank You” card. Better still, take the local agent a fruit basket with a Thank You Card and let them know we appreciate their cancellation letter because it will save us $1,500 a year!!! Would that be mean or what?

Lesson learned: You should check around every few years and look for better insurance rates!

Good Medical Program
I found a symptom checker program at the Mayo Clinic website that might be useful. You check boxes that describe your symptoms and the program can make educated “guesses” at the cause(s) of the problem. I tried it on a little issue I have going on, and found it very interesting. Try it at the following link”

Do You Trust the Government?
One of my friends sent me this picture the other day. I don’t know the gentleman holding this sign, but I sort of understand his feelings. I just wonder where all this is heading…

I guess I would feel better if we were trying to fix what was already broken and broke, before heading down new paths of uncertainty.Broke

Joke of the Day

Jose and Carlos are both beggars. They beg in different areas of Atlanta . Carlos begs for the same amount of time as Jose, but only collects about eight or nine dollars a day. Jose brings home a suitcase full of ten dollar bills every day. He drives a Mercedes, lives in a mortgage free house, and has a lot of money to spend.

"Hey, amigo," Carlos says to Jose, "I work just as long and hard as you, so how you bring home a suitcase full of ten dollar bills every day?

Jose says, "Look at your sign, what does it say?"

Carlos' sign reads: "No work.. Wife and six kids to support."

'What wrong with that?" Carlos asks him.

"No wonder you only get eight or nine dollars a day!"

Carlos says, "OK, what your sign say?"

Jose says, "It reads, "Going Back To Mexico -- Only Need $10."
