Barb, progressive marketing. Tell them they want and need and wow, they want and need.

Mini C with fearless leader has to be bit of a treat n'est ce pas.

Got a fantastic picture of the sunset this evening and was going to upload it to the net but can't find my handy dandy super duper card reader so it will have to wait.

Party on dudes.

Needles to say I'm shopping for new insurance.

Papa Steve I remember you seemed happy with State Farm but will any others tell me who they use, were you happy in how they handled your claim and did they jump your rates? If you don't want to post here feel free to pm me. Thanks Tim
We have GEICO insurance well over 7 k damage by hail rate is the same it was a act of god. Cut the check 2 days after hail and brought it to us. Even gave us a rent a car for 9 days and hotel for a week. We have full-timer insurance and full coverage on everything with a 500 buck deductible. We love Geico.

Dwayne. I have an aversion to doing giving $ to companies that put insulting commercials on TV. (Yes, I watch too much TV) Geico is one of the worst offenders. If they were using any group of humans other than "cavemen" they would be sued out of business for discrimination. And don't get me started on the talking gecko.

I'm glad they have been good to you. I'm rather opinionated about that, too.

I guess he didn't think getting the "official" foundation was important. Or maybe he just wanted to keep his artistic talents as a leisurely pass time. But for whatever reason, he didn't want to color inside the lines.

I suspect those of us who grew up with coloring books, colored pencils and remember our first box of 64 with sharpener in the back, could easily slip into a place we haven't been in a while.

There is something about smells which triggers memories, and crayons have a distinct odor. For some people, it brings back happy times and places in life.
Rather mutant to not color inside of the lines, not like being told to color inside the lines... There is a poster where I get my hair done that gave me the courage to go funky color with my 'shrop' as my boys call it...all it says is 'Color Outside the Lines' and I do believe it is part of my mantra now!

I went to school with a guy who had a hell of a time drawing or producing art on the demand of the art teacher. When he completed school he went on to a life of doing what he wanted to do, painting pictures.
It is hard for some to fathom the Ken Danby routinely failed art class in highschool.

I like it. We'll talk with writers. Oh, wait ... we ARE the writers.
Right brain engaging ....

Barb, you have a monkey. There aren't even any lines for you to color in.

Of course, the same could be said for Annie, Earlene, Nola, and Denise, to name a few ... and very soon, Kate.

We didn't break the Power Tower in half, but the maintenance man took it apart to get to the shutoff valve in the bottom. We did, however, break off the spigot and pipe.

The whole park was w/o power and water.

Back together at last.

Attachment 116781

This little guy was in the driveway, looking totally befuddled and lost. Cold and sluggish, he lay contentedly warming in my hand until I put him in the sun at the base of a palm tree.

Attachment 116782

Lordy what a day. Think I'll just go back to bed!
Given what has been happening, Sue, that may be your best option.
Ommmmmms headed your way.
Your fortunes will surely change!

First you know we love ya girl. But their commercials are comedy. Some in poor taste? sure ! But it is to make you remember it. And it worked. Heck I offend people every day. With out even trying. But I just go to who will take care of us. Customer service is very important to me. Well that and cost. But we have 3 things covered by them and we pay 200 a month with full coverage on all and full-timers and a 500 deductible. So if their commercial offends people it ok freedom of speech. I love our Constitution.
