A defense for the insurance industry…. based on my own experience

I wrote this blog on the day that the incident occurred.  I decided to wait a few weeks and give myself time to cool down so I wouldn’t be posting in anger.  Nearly a month after the fact, I’m keeping it intact, as it’s mostly not about anger so much as it is informative aboutContinue reading “A defense for the insurance industry…. based on my own experience”

Comparing prices…………

This is a quick thought for those who compare pricing with your neighbors/friends/relatives etc to see whether or not your policy premium is competitive.  Can we please stop doing this?  It’s like comparing apples to galoshes.  Apples and oranges are probably much more similar than you and your neighbor’s insuranceContinue reading “Comparing prices…………”

A little love for our friends in Bellevue

It seems that in the borough of Bellevue, there is now legislation in place that requires you grill at least 5 feet away from any flammable materials – your house, shed, woodpile, deck, etc.  As you can imagine, the ordinance has “sparked” a number of protests.  It’s also made the news.      A LOT     OF NEWS      It’s alsoContinue reading “A little love for our friends in Bellevue”
