Funny how food poisoning will turn you against a food.

Wonder if I can sue Grandy's because I got food poisoning on their chicken and couldn't even stand the smell of chicken for years let alone eat it.

Afraid any lawyers would only get enough of a settlement to pay themselves, or worst I would have to pay them and not get anything myself.

Like what, my Farmers agent sucks, need to change Ins for house and cars.
Had a fantastic agent that redid my policies all the time to save me money. Never even had to think about it.
He always made fun of my "German" cars. He had a couple of nice collector T-Birds.
Told me if I ever had a track accident to tell them I was on the way to watch.
He retired, can't even get ahold of his replacement.

Was quoted with State Farm for half what Farmers is now..
They seem rated pretty highly on net reviews.

I think State Farm does so well because if the others don't pay up they just sent "The Unit" out to collect.

Crappy weather here, though it could be all snow instead of snow, sleet, hail, rain...

There was about 2" of slush covering our road when I left this morning.

Talking to SF their homeowners is about the same cost, but sounds like SF would pay more for the stuff in my house if something happened. Farmers has a set value of like $6000 where SF goes up to matching the value of the home. The good thing about my Farmers is I have a grandfathered in deductible of only $500 vs $1000.

The big difference is the car insurance. For both my monthly is $145 with Farmers and SF is quoting $89, same coverage. Sounded like SF was charging me for the most expensive car, and just adding the other one to the policy for nothing because I am the only driver.

When I had American Family I was paying $300 a year for the Cobra for full coverage. When I moved to CA the first quote was $2100 per half year. I did not go with them.

We have SF for cars, house, and life insurance and are happy. Our agent is fantastic and that can make a big difference.

We have had claims on the house and cars and had no issues at all.

Yeah, our rates went up a bit over the last 10 years but that is to be expected.

Looks like fun, have bunches!

Saw a toyo yesterdy. Had a roof rack tent. Tent was folded up. Not a very common site around here. It had lots of oval stickers on the rear window. Those usually mean camping/four wheeling events. At least they did in the rover group.

Taking the kids to see "ZOOTOPIA" this morning. It looks like a pretty funny film.
