We have a spare bedroom that never gets used for anything besides storage, so I got an idea over the holidays to convert it into a little home library. It's big enough for a bed and also a little sitting are so I thought that if we installed some bookshelves all along one wall I could probably still use it as a guest bedroom when we do have people stay over.
A few years ago I puzzled over a newspaper article that warned drivers of the dangers of pothole damage to their vehicle. In Michigan we are accustomed to dealing with huge potholes as spring breaks. Flowers bloom and the roads sprout huge holes! But the kicker to this article was a warning by the city that damages were not the responsibility of the city unless they were advised of the whereabouts of the pothole at least 30 days in advance. Does that make sense? Would I warn the city of a pothole then purposely drive into it? I had to smile at this.
But seriously, once a year my husband checks the rates of various auto insurance companies to ensure that we are getting not only the best price but the best insurance for our dollar. It is mandatory in our state that one maintains insurance on their vehicle so comparing companies and their rates is a wise move. Today's technology makes it even easier. I have found a number of sites that offer free quotes and I like the idea of getting them before I get on the phone. I pay for minutes on my phone.
If you are confused by the jargon used by insurance agents; collision, comprehension, liability, deductible, full coverage, no fault, and so forth you will like this site too. They break it down in easy to understand layman terms. After we experience an accident or loss is not the time to familiarize ourselves with these terms and find out what and how much our insurance covers. At this site you can get these questions answered and more without having to leave home. This information is invaluable and can save you immeasurably in the long run.
This post linked to Thursday Two Questions. My questions are:
1. Do you think it should be lawful to mandate that drivers have insurance? I wonder if we did not mandate insurance who would pay the liability from accidents.
2. Does your particular locale have a policy which you find puzzling, such as our city advising that we have to first advise of the pothole before claiming damages?
Thanks so much for your visit. Take care and God bless. Hey, it's Thursday and the weekend is almost here!

A good friend is like a good bra; uplifting, supportive, and comfortable. I've stayed in all weekend with my virus/cold and my good friend, Jeannie has been emailing me tips to get well, get well cards and jokes. Here is one of the jokes she sent me. She knows that laughter is the best medicine!
