I just realized that by one simple lightening strike most certainly will effect my nephews recent effort to utilize the online degree programs in game design that he is supposed to start next week with one of the Online Degree Programs that he has been so excited about starting for some time now and that he found by using http://nces.ed.gov/collegenavigator/. I guess that is one major draw back about using an Online School to further one’s education that is such a big hit with so many people now.
Now most people would be able to go to the library and use the computers that most libraries have now for the general public to use for free, but my nephew has such a wacky work schedule. Most of the time he works at night as a D.J. I’m not sure how his hours are going to match up with the local libraries that are down there and close to their home. But if he wants it bad enough, he has youth on his side, I’m sure he will figure something out until they get the situation at home taken care of. After all one of the main reasons to take classes online is all about flexibility, right!
I asked my sis if they had home owner’s insurance and thank fully she does, but she thinks that her policy has a $1,000 deductible and that is going to suck, big time. I have never heard of a $1,000 deductible before, I think that that is totally outrageous and I can only hope that are premiums are way, way low to have such a high deductible to handle at a time of crisis.
One of the Big questions these days is about the affordable health care act that will affect each and every one of us here in the good old U.S. of A. Going online can be a great resource for this issue. I have found a great affordable health insurance website that folks in North Carolina can turn to for all of their insurance questions regarding this affordable health care act as well as other health insurance concerns.
This website is nchealthagency.com. My best friend lives in the beautiful state of North Carolina and we share a lot of information via emails and Facebook. The 21st century has truly made communicating a much more interesting, easy and fun way to learn things and to keep in contact with people from all over.
My mother was telling me how “back in the day” it was a long process to undertake in order to find the best auto insurance and home insurance rates available. You would and could spend hours on the phone, utilizing the local Yellow Pages to find a local agent and you would have to repeat all of your pertinent information over and over to several agencies trying to find the best bang for your buck.
These days the Internet can and does make this task a much easier one to tackle. They have sites like agentinsure.com that helps you compare insurance quotes from multiple carriers in a matter of minutes with no fees attached. You can’t get any better than that now can you? There are many insurance companies out there competing for your business so it’s nice to know that you can turn to the Internet to get auto insurance quotes and home insurance quotes provided by AgentInsure.
I’ve decided to give them a try and see if I can find a better deal on my car insurance. It shouldn’t take much since I only have the one vehicle and my driving record is unblemished at this point. I love my current agent but I’ve got to start cutting back on some of my monthly bills and if I can find a better deal some where else then I’ve got to do what I’ve got to do, right?
It is interesting to watch the 4 or 5 major insurance companies battle it out daily on our TVs. Each one slamming the others, each trying to out do the others and what they latch onto and bleed it until it dries out and we are screaming each time the damned commercial comes on for the 6 time in less than 2 hours.
As I stated the other day I have been checking out auto insurance via the Internet. It is the first time I’ve dealt with shopping around for quotes and coverages for car insurance. I’ve had my insurance with the same agent for a very long time and have never had to deal with looking around for cheap full coverage insurance by going online. When I found my agent we were all still using our local paper version of the Yellow Pages, was letting my fingers doing the walking. Remember that old line? I haven’t heard that expression for some time. I think they even had a song out back in the 70′s about the telephone man and letting your fingers do the walking. Might have to look that up on YouTube.com some time, it would be cool to hear that song after all these years.
Anyway I found another good site at cheap-autoinsurance.com. All I had to do was type in my zip code and 6 different insurance companies came up for me to check out. Nationwide being one of them (they are my current insurance company so of course I didn’t give them any information. Elephant Insurance was one of the choices. I have never heard of that company but decided to give them a shot, but wasn’t happy with the quote that they gave me.
Over the weekend I’ll try out some of the other ones that they have listed for me. Progressive is one of them as well as Geico, both being well established and well known insurance providers that might be able to beat Nationwide’s rates. I still hate the thought of leaving my current insurance agent. He has been wonderful to work with all these years and has helped me out of a few jams, which I thank him kindly for doing. But it’s all about the money at this point right? Guess we will see after I do a bit more research done, there is no hurry and no pressure. I like it like that.
