I have noticed over the past couple of years that one of my kitchen cupboards is overflowing with souvenir logo mugs that I’ve collected on my travels. Every now and then my wife gets upset with me over how many of these things I collect, and packs up a lot of them in a cardboard box and puts the box in the basement. She says that she is tired of opening the cupboard door and having a ton of things fall out, and we really don’t need that many mugs in the kitchen at one time. Well, my response to that is to just go out and collect more of them! I’m a collector, what can I say?

I’ve noticed over the past year that I’ve been getting notices from many of my credit card companies that they are changing the the interest rate on my cards. When that happens, I pull the file folder of the card and review each one.Â I’ve found that in every single case, when I first opened the credit card account it was a low interest credit card; but now, as the economy worsens, these cards seem to be increasing the interest rates!
I really don’t understand why they are doing this to me, since I pay off each credit card bill in full as soon as it comes; I can’t believe that they are doing it because of that! I have to assume that this is something that they are doing on a wide scale basis, and that perhaps they expect that the recipients of the notices are not even bothering to read the notices and just file them away (or throw them away!)
Well, I am not one of those people! No, I’m not. So I am going to start to shop around for different low interest credit card offers and when I get notices that my application has been approved and the new card(s) arrive in the mail I will be calling the old cards and renegotiating my interest rate or cancelling the card(s).

In my opinion, people should be diligent about making sure that they have enough insurance, both for their homes and their vehicles. These are big ticket items that would devastate someone financially if something bad happened to them and the owners could not afford to fix them up. However, in this economy, people need to pay careful attention to what insurance they are buying; they want to make sure to get the best value for their money!
With that in mind, I think it is great that you can get online instant insurance quotes to help you find out what is available “out there” without having to make a lot of phone calls. I love how you can get auto insurance quotes and home insurance quotes with just a few clicks of the mouse and keyboard! You can get all of the information you need in the comfort of your own home! Isn’t technology wonderful?

I find it interesting how many times radar guns are used for purposes other than catching speeding cars! They are used to help people who are involved in sports, too! That’s how “they” determine how fast a pitcher can throw a ball, how fast a golf ball is flying, how fast a soccer ball is going, etc.
I was surprised when a friend of mine who is in a small local amateur team was bragging to me how fast he could pitch a baseball. I asked him how he knew, and he said that the coach of his team had bought a radar gun to use in their team’s training. I didn’t realize that his little team was so heavily invested in the game that they would go out and buy a radar gun! He said that they didn’t get just a radar gun, they got a pitching cage with a radar gun in it!
I asked him where did his team go to buy the gun, and he told me that they got it online. I think he was being elusive and didn’t really know!

I was really surprised at the heated discussion at the table last night when the conversation turned to health insurance. Seems that people have been struggling to find affordable health insurance greensboro nc and they are getting frustrated. I’m just really glad that my family has health insurance through my wife’s employer, and that it is fully paid through their employee benefits plan. I really feel badly for people that have to pay for their own – it is so expensive that it is downright scary!
