Looking Into Things


There are times when you need to make a change with things you take for granted.  I keep seeing commercials telling me that if I switch to this company I could save such and such.  Or, that if I change from this business to that one, my offerings will expand like crazy.  It's rare that I believe any of those promptings but recently we needed to really look over the numbers in our good ol' bank account and we discovered that a change wasn't only something to think about, it was in our best interest, literally.

Making changes to your home owners insurance might be a little off-putting but once you start the process, just by speaking with a representative by phone, it's amazing how your fears can be calmed and questions can be answered.  I wasn't even sure if I knew what the right questions were to ask, and I said that to the Prime Insurance Agency representative, and they were incredibly patient with me.  Nice.

Once we were in the process of one change we looked into what was available to us in auto insurance and found we could make a substantial savings by making a move to a different company.  I couldn’t believe it.  Our old company had been very nice to us however, in this economy, saving money really makes a big difference and not only does the decrease in cost sit well with us, the way we’ve been well taken care of by this new company reassures us that we’ve made the right decision.  Change isn’t always easy, but it can be a good idea, especially for your pocket book!

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

How to Find the Safest Gear for your Baby

Nothing compares to the joys of being a parent. Having a newborn in the family brings couples closer and makes the entire household more cheerful and interesting. But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards.
