Looking around online just a bit learning some of places in the surrounding over in the U.K. that a group of the family is planning on visiting in the near future, if we can work it all out. I have to say that Cardiff looks pretty cool. I’d love to visit the Cardiff Castle that was built by the Romans, who were the first people to settle the area owing to its strategic location at the centre of three river systems, set up their original wooden fortification in AD 55 high atop the hill overlooking Cardiff.
This castle has over 2,000 years of history that they are willing to share with the public, with tons of events for everyone who visits and tours the castle and it’s grounds.
I just checked the weather there, it is sunny and in the 50′s, pretty much the same as here!
I have a small interest in insurance business since I worked in the insurance industry for several years back in the day. My brother-in-law was an insurance agent for Nationwide Insurance, and when he moved my sister and her kids to Tennessee he needed someone like me to go to his office and take care of the business for a few months. This gave them time to settle in their new home, get the kids into schools, and he found a new office in their new home town for his business. I had no idea of what I was getting myself into! It was really hard work and it was so very overwhelming and stressful, but I learned so much and I gained enough experience and knowledge from those few months that I landed another job with Nationwide Insurance once he finally closed his old office’s door for the last time. The insurance industry is always changing, trying to keep up with the times and always trying to keep a step ahead of their competitors (there are a lot of competitors in the insurance business!).
The Internet has really made a major impact on the insurance game. I love the fact that you can go online and find out just about anything that you need to know about what insurance can offer you and yours. You can get quotes in just a matter of minutes, something that could have taken hours to do back in the day. I found my south Florida home insurance professionals online and I couldn’t be happier with them. I have referred several people to their office and have gotten to know many of the employees there fairly well throughout the years. Their office is right down the street which is so convenient, too. Although I do most of my business online, once in a while I’ll just stop by and visit with them for a short while on my way home. I’ve dropped off some home made goodies to them on occasion, so it’s all good. I like knowing and getting along with people that I do business with. Since I do a lot of business with them, by sending them my hard earned money each and every month, I’ve made it a point to have a positive relationship with as many of them as I can. It’s paid off in the long run, as they have gone out of their way for me a few times and done me a favor from time to time. I don’t think I’ll be switching insurance providers any time soon and I’ll continue to send them referrals when I can.
I really enjoy several TV shows that come on The Animal Planet channel that I always look forward to. There aren’t many shows that I really like that come on the weekends, but I finally found some on The Animal Planet. Last night I got everything ready to sit down and watch Pit Boss, but I couldn’t hear any sound on that channel. Every other channel had sound, just not the one that I wanted to watch. Being very frustrated, I finally gave up and went to bed thinking that it was just a technical difficulty that would be cleared up by morning.
One of the first things I did this morning was check and see if the sound issue had been resolved and I’m sad to say that I still can’t hear a darn thing. I only have one TV set up in the house, but I have a small TV down in the basement that I went down and dug out, brought upstairs, got hooked up with the cable and got plugged in and turned on only to find that the volume works just find on all the channels. So that leads me to believe that there is an issue with my big screen TV, one that is apparently over my head. I’ve put a phone call into my brother to see if he can swing by at some point this weekend and see if he can figure it out. He is really good with all of today’s technical gadgets, so I’m hoping and praying that he can do something with it so that I can get back to watching the shows that I’m missing right now.
