The Gift that Keeps on Giving

By Diane Tait Image courtesy of flickr With the holiday shopping season in full swing, I thought I’d make a gift suggestion that you may not have considered.   While most people scour the Internet looking for deals on toys, the latest electronics and gizmos galore, I came up with one that probably hasn’t crossed your mind: A carbon monoxide alarm.   While nearly every home has a smoke detector designed to warn them in case of fire, precious few have a CO alarm.   Every bit as deadly as smoke, carbon monoxide is colorless, odorless and just as toxic.  

Winter Boating Basics

By Diane Tait Image courtesy of wikimedia With Thanksgiving Day only a day away, you’d probably think that I would have anything on my mind other than boating.   True, if I lived further north, my boat would by this time be mothballed for the season.   But in sunny Florida, you can spend time on the water practically the year around.   When the days get shorter and the weather gets fickle, I think it’s the perfect time to write about winter boating basics.

Giving Thanks for Insurance

By Diane Tait Image courtesy of Pixabay As Thanksgiving Day draws ever nearer this month, I thought I’d take the time to point out several reasons why policyholders should be thankful for insurance.   Without sounding self-serving, it’s important to acknowledge that were it not for insurance, our homes would be at greater risk, our businesses would be more likely to fail and our lives would be less fulfilled. You heard me right, it’s because of insurance that every American can feel free to take risks that they would otherwise not entertain, for fear of the consequences.   Allow me to elaborate.

Scary Insurance Facts

By Diane Tait Image courtesy of flickr Since I’m writing this blog on Halloween, I thought I’d give it an appropriately scary slant.   While insurance is meant to take the fright out of owning things like homes, cars and businesses, sometimes you need to realize that the insurance industry was designed to make your life a little less scary.   With that in mind, allow me to share some spine-tingling facts, stories and myths with you.
