Thanksgiving Safety

As we prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday next week, it would be good for all us to remember practice safety whatever we are doing. We could ruin a wonderful holiday by a little carelessness.

Be Safe at Home or on the Road
When you are driving, drive defensively and slow down. It’s always better to be late than to have an accident.

Here’s a 2 minute video to remind you of safety tips while you are in the kitchen at Thanksgiving, or anytime.

During the holidays we often get excited, but we need to be extra careful, slow down, think clearly, and plan ahead so that we do not have a mishap. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving week and that you and all your loved ones have a wonderful time.

Insurance Issues Settled
Four days after we received a letter from Nationwide telling us they were cancelling our homeowners insurance, our agent finally called. This was to tell us they would continue our policy if we had a certified plumber perform an inspection of our home to verify it being in good condition and if we would increase our deductible.

I was pleased to tell the agency that we did not need insurance with them after Nov. 30, and the new insurance we were getting would save us $1,600 a year. On homeowners insurance, we got better coverage at about 1/3 the cost of Nationwide.

ErieInsurance Some have been asking about who our new insurer will be. I am glad to say it is Erie Insurance. I suggest you give them a call if they operate in your state. If you live in Tennessee, send me a note and I can give you the name of the local agent. Erie is much less expensive, especially on homeowners, because they only operate in 11 “chosen” states.

If you don't stand for something,
you will fall for just about anything.

Quote of the Day
Character is doing the right thing when nobody's looking.  There are too many people who think that the only thing that's right is to get by, and the only thing that's wrong is to get caught.

Joke of the Day

County Police officers still write their reports by hand, and the data is entered later by a computer tech into their database. One theft report stated that a farmer had lost 2,025 pigs.

Thinking that to be an error, the tech called the farmer directly.

“Is it true Mr. (Smith) that you lost 2,025 pigs?” she asked.
“Yeth.” lisped the farmer.

Being a Howard County girl herself, the tech entered:

“Subject lost 2 sows and 25 pigs.”
