Insurance Savings Are For Real

I’ve had Nationwide Insurance for as long as I can remember having auto insurance. We are always seeing the commercials from the various large insurance companies urging us to switch over and save around $300 a year by doing so. Well I have to say that I went online and got a quote from Progressive and I switched over today and guess what – I’m saving $50 a month which totals $300, just like the commercials are saying. Too funny!

Yoplait – A Good Thing

I have never been much of a breakfast person. It can take a couple of hours before I really want to put anything of substance into my mouth. A nice cup of hot tea with sugar and milk will keep me for an hour or two. If I really need to put something into my stomach I have gotten into the habit of eating yogurt and Yoplait is the best that I have found anywhere, particularly the Strawberry and Banana flavor.

Yoplait has a lot of flavors and it depends on what store I go to as to what flavors they have, but they generally have the Strawberry and Banana ones, that is if they are not sold out. Hard to believe that I have found something that I link that is good for me! Will wonders ever cease?

Interstate Hassles

On the way home from work this afternoon I had to take an alternative route home. It appears that a major wreak happened on the Interstate, a hit and run and at least one person was killed. What a mess to deal with on a Wednesday at the end of a long hard day at work. There was nothing fun about this particular “hump day”.

School Days Almost Over

When I was a kid, we had to go to school until the third week of June. When we got home on that last day of school, we usually found my mom’s car loaded with suitcases and bags of gear to take on our vacation. We got home, changed into play clothes, and drove off that very night for the cabin. Our Dad always told us that he helped Daniel Boone build that cabin, not sure how he convinced us of that considering all of the new modern luxuries were quite evident. I mean heck we even had Indianapolis Water Softeners put in a system to help make the water taste better since our Mom insisted that we drink water and not soda pop all summer long.

Funny how our own world view can be so limited to our own experiences. I had no idea that kids in other parts of the country we getting out of school before Memorial Day! I am so jealous of those kids!

To me, the very best part of summer is when it is not so unbearably hot during the day, which means June and July. By the time it gets to August, it is miserably hot and humid. I’d much rather be back in an air conditioned school room in August than stuck at home and be told by my mom to go outside and play in 100+ degrees heat. Ugh!

Hillbilly Hand Fishing

The commercials for this year’s TV Reality show Hillbilly Hand Fishing have been interesting, to say the least, but I don’t think that I’ll be tuning in to the Animal Planet to see it any time soon. There is just too many weird, unknown, wacky, ugly things going on there for my taste to even just watch the darn thing, can’t imagine participating in such a thing.
