Ask for help with insurance

Are you confused about the Affordable Health Care Act? I’m very lucky and have health insurance through the company I used to work for (retired from in 1998) so I don’t have to worry about it. But I have a lot of friends and family that need health insurance and don’t even know where to start.

I suggested that they go to this website that I found ( and read up on how easy it is to get individualized help with making decisions about health insurance. I was reading that you don’t have to pay any extra for an agent to help you with it, because the insurance companies pay the agents, not the customer! Now that I know that, I’ll be encouraging more of my friends and relatives that have some concerns and questions to check with an agent. They’ve got nothing to lose, and everything to gain!

Early Valentine’s Parties

The kids are having their Valentine’s parties at school today. The actual holiday falls on Saturday this year, and there is no school on Friday nor Monday, so today is the only day it makes sense to have the parties and celebrate a fun, loving holiday.

We were up late writing the names of classmates on dozens of valentines that we bought at KMart over the weekend. The kids also have to decorate a shoebox to take and put on their desks as a valentine’s mailbox. That is fun, too. We are using shiny things, glitter, bows and stickers. I think I am enjoying this as much as the kids are!

My aunt wants me to help her find new insurance

Aunt Sue has asked me to help her figure out which insurance company to use for her new business in Providence. She says that she has been too busy for that herself, so I agreed to help her. I don’t think it will be too hard to find if I can use the Internet to its best advantage. It’s all about using the right words in the search engines to find what you need. For example, I’ll be trying the phrases Insurance Providence, RI, Business Liability Providence, RI, and even Renters Insurance Providence, RI to try to find the different agencies for Aunt Sue.

It’s amazing how figuring out the right words to type into a search box can make or break a search! I’ll be trying to find an independent agent; I think that they give the best service because they are not committed to just one company. I should be able to help Aunt Sue in short order!

Writing for Fun

A friend mentioned that they love reading my blog and love my writing style. Although that was nice and flattering, it made me wonder what is so special about my writing style?

I never really thought about that much. I just type the words that come to mind when I’m trying to describe something or explain my thoughts. I do not make a conscious effort to have a certain style.

So I am puzzling over that today and if you have any thought please leave me a comment on this post. Thanks!

Busy Baker

For some reason I decided that we need cake. I’m not a big fan of pies, but I do like a good cake once in a while. So today I decided to bake.

I have a pantry with a variety of cake mixes and cans of frosting. The one that caught my eye was for a pineapple supreme mix. I love pineapple cake and especially like the pineapple upside down cake. That is where you put melted butter, brown sugar and pineapple rings in the bottom of the baking pan before you pour the batter in. I put maraschino cherry halves into the center of the pineapple rings, just to add some color and another sweet flavor to the cake.

It turned out delicious and would you believe that half of that cake is already gone!
