Testimonial: "An Excellent Communicator"

Ron was very helpful when I needed to decide on a Medicare plan. I had contacted him on the advice of my financial adviser. Ron is an excellent communicator - well informed and patient in his explanation of the many options available. With his kind and expert guidance, I was able to choose a plan that best suits my needs. I highly recommend his services.

The Seasons of Life

There was a man who had four sons. He wanted his sons to learn to not judge things too quickly. So he sent them each on a quest, in turn, to go and look at a pear tree that was a great distance away.

The first son went in the winter, the second in the spring, the third in summer, and the youngest son in the fall.

When they had all gone and come back, he called them together to describe what they had seen. The first son said that the tree was ugly, bent, and twisted. The second son said no - it was covered with green buds and full of promise. The third son disagreed, he said it was laden with blossoms that smelled so sweet and looked so beautiful, it was the most graceful thing he had ever seen.

The last son disagreed with all of them; he said it was ripe and drooping with fruit, full of life and fulfilment. The man then explained to his sons that they were all right, because they had each seen but one season in the tree's life.

He told them that you cannot judge a tree, or a person, by only one season, and that the essence of who they are - and the pleasure, joy, and love that come from that life - can only be measured at the end, when all the seasons are up.

The Divorce Phone Call

An elderly man in Phoenix calls his son in New York and says, "I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough."

"Pop, what are you talking about?" the son screams.

"We can't stand the sight of each other any longer," the old man says. "We're sick of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Chicago and tell her," and he hangs up.

Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone.

"They're not getting divorced if I have anything to say about it," she shouts. "I'll take care of this."

She calls Phoenix immediately and screams at the old man. "You are NOT getting divorced. Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my brother back and we'll both be there tomorrow. Until then don't do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?" and hangs up.

The old man hangs up the phone and turns to his wife and says, "Okay, they're coming for Thanksgiving ... now what do we tell them for Christmas?"


Dear Clients & Friends,


There isn't a single one of us who isn't here in America enjoying life because someone, somewhere made a great sacrifice--even their own life.

May is the month to recognize that fact, and to honor those who came before us. Great men and women have died to bring us life as we know it in this country.

Let's take the opportunity to give credit where credit is due, and to enjoy what has been so selflessly given to us.

Please give me a call if you need to discuss your insurance needs. I would love to talk to you. When it comes to beloved and cherished human beings, there is a way to improve their lives too. It's called adequate insurance. When we take steps to plan for our loved ones in the event of disease, disability or death, we are showing that we care about them.

Travel Insurance

As we get closer to summer, many of us are scheduling travel, often out of the country. Many times, our current insurance plans do not offer much coverage outside the USA. A good solution is to purchase travel insurance.

We often think of travel insurance to provide medical coverage when we are traveling. But travel insurance is much, much more than that. These plans can also protect you with other benefits:

• Cancellation
• Change Fees
• Baggage & Personal Effects
• Emergency Medical Evacuation
• Internet Usage Fees
• Inclement Weather & Natural Disaster
• Rental Car Damage

Travel Insurance is very affordable and can help prevent your vacation from turning into a real nightmare. Click here to learn more about Travel Insurance options from IMG or call us at (678)464-8602.


Puzzling, Ain't It?

Click the image to do this 100-piece puzzle of Marie Antoinette's Hamlet (from TheJigSawPuzzles.com)

The jigsaw puzzle was first created by cartographer, John Spilsbury, who wanted to help British children learn more about the British Empire. In the 1760s, he took a map of the empire and cut it into pieces, making a game for children to play while learning geography.

They weren't called jigsaw puzzles, but were called "dissected maps," and their popularity grew. By 1908, Parker Brothers created handcut wooden puzzle sets that became very popular. Milton Bradley and other publishers were soon producing these popular favorites.

During the depression, puzzles were made more affordable for families by producing them on die-cut cardboard. Some have called the jigsaw puzzle a refreshing entertainment during the stress of the depression era. Families of all incomes could spend time doing the puzzles together.


You Won't Believe This National Holiday

Believe it or not, May 9th is National Lost Sock Memorial Day. That's right--"Memorial" Day. So along with the more serious Memorial Day holiday this month, take a lighthearted look in your drawer and say goodbye to all those singles! Today is the day to do it. Either throw them away, make sock puppets, or convert them to handy dust rags.

Perhaps one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in the universe is how a perfectly good sock duo can be so easily separated and never reunited. It's a legendary struggle that nearly every person on the planet can identify with.

Have some fun with this holiday. Invite friends over for a mismatched sock day. Who knows--maybe you're friends will come wearing some of your lost socks!
