Testimonial:"Thanks, Ron"

"My wife and I had always worked for large corporations, mainly of the insurance they offered. We wanted to start our own business but were very concerned about health insurance coverage. After talking to Ron and understanding what insurance options we had available we decided to step out on faith and go into business for ourselves. Now we can concentrate on growing our business without worrying about our medical, vision or dental insurance needs."

Thanks Ron,

Stingy Old Man

There was a man who worked all his life and saved all of his money.

He was a real miser and loved money just about more than anything.

Just before he died he said to his wife, "Now listen, when I die I want you to take all my money and put it in the casket with me because I want to take it with me to the afterlife."

He got her to promise him, with all her heart, that when he died she would put all of his money in the casket with him.

Well one day he died. At his funeral, when the ceremony was over and the undertaker was just about to close the casket his wife said, "Wait a minute." She had a shoe-box with her and she placed it in the casket. Then the undertaker closed the casket and rolled it away.

Her friend said, "I hope you weren't crazy enough to put all that money in the casket with that stingy old man." She said, "Yes, I promised, I cannot lie. I promised him that I would put that money in the casket with him."

"You mean to tell me you put every cent of his money in the casket with him?" "I sure did," said the wife, "I got it all together, deposited it into my account, and wrote him a check."

Being and Breathing

One warm evening many years ago...

After spending nearly every waking minute with Angel for eight straight days, I knew that I had to tell her just one thing. So late at night, just before she fell asleep, I whispered it in her ear. She smiled - the kind of smile that makes me smile back -and she said, "When I'm seventy-five and I think about my life and what it was like to be young, I hope that I can remember this very moment."

A few seconds later she closed her eyes and fell asleep. The room was peaceful - almost silent. All I could hear was the soft purr of her breathing. I stayed awake thinking about the time we'd spent together and all the choices in our lives that made this moment possible. And at some point, I realized that it didn't matter what we'd done or where we'd gone. Nor did the future hold any significance.

All that mattered was the serenity of the moment.

Just being with her and breathing with her.

The moral: We must not allow the clock, the calendar, and external pressures to rule our lives and blind us to the fact that each individual moment of our lives is a beautiful mystery and a miracle - especially those moments we spend in the presence of a loved one.

Dear Clients & Friends,

How's your summer been?

I hope you've been having a great time so far this summer. As the season comes to an end, there are still some fun things to do as a family. One of them is to attend your local county or state fair. Make memories. Take your children or grandchildren to the fair to experience an American tradition like no other.

When you have time to think about your insurance needs, let's get together and discuss how I can help you protect yourself and loved ones.

Have a great day.

Strangest State Fair Competitions

Every year, millions of excited adults and children visit county and state fairs across America. There, they get to appreciate the best their locale can offer in the way of livestock, foods, arts, crafts, entertainment, and much more. Some of the strangest things you'll see at a fair are listed below:

Pet Rock Olympics:

Did you think the "pet rock" fad was long gone? Think again. The Colorado State Fair features a rock competition to determine who can roll their pet rock the farthest, and whose rock is best dressed.

Giant Cabbage Competition:

Alaska's state fair includes a cabbage competition that has produced some jaw-dropping results. In 2009, a world record cabbage weighing over 138 pounds won the event. How to coax a cabbage to grow to that size is a closely kept secret.

Llama Costume Contest:

The Minnesota State Fair is known for its unusual event featuring Llamas dressed in costume. This is serious business--nothing to spit at. Llamas are judged on their costume, originality and poise.

Banana Derby (monkeys riding dogs):

Possibly one of the weirdest fair competitions is called the "Banana Derby" and yes, it is in Georgia as well as some other fairs across the country. Capuchin monkeys dressed in jockey outfits ride large dogs in a "speed" competition. Check out this video to see the animals in action. Here is information about Georgia's state fair.

Elaine's Recipe of the Month   
Cheddar Quiche
Elaine Dutton 
1 cup all-purpose baking mix
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/3 cup milk
3 slices bacon, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
4 eggs
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk, heated

1. In a large skillet, cook ground beef and onion on medium-high heat for 7 minutes, breaking up ground beef with a wooden spatula (in bite size pieces) until beef is browned. 1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9 inch pie pan.

2. In a medium bowl, mix together the baking mix, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper. Gradually mix in the milk until moistened. Knead a few times on a floured board. Roll dough out to a 12 inch circle, and press into the greased pie pan. Fold edges, and flute.

3. Place bacon and onion in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat, and cook until bacon is evenly brown. Drain, and crumble bacon. Sprinkle bacon, onion, and Cheddar cheese into the pie pan.

4. In a medium bowl, beat eggs with 1 teaspoon salt and hot pepper sauce, then slowly stir in hot evaporated milk. Pour into the pie shell.

5. Bake 5 minutes in the preheated oven, then reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Continue baking 25 minutes, or until center is almost set. Do not over bake - the quiche will set as it cools.
