Just $9.95 A Month

October 28, 2021

Good morning.  Today is gray and cool.  Temps may get up as high as fifty later today.  According to my phone app, we probably won't be seeing the sun again until next Monday.  The good news is that the storm has gone by and we're okay.  

We had a lot of rain and the wind was really perky, but we did not lose our electric power.  Deanne lives a few minutes away, and her town lost the power for more than sixteen hours.  We were very lucky.

This morning, there are a lot of school closings listed on the TV.  All the towns and cities around here, including our town.  Some got hit pretty hard from the storm, and some still don't have their electric power restored. 

Folks, last night the unthinkable happened.  I got to watch a program on TV for a whole hour, and not once did they mention anything about Medicare and it's new programs.  Awesome! 

I got an interesting piece of mail this week.  You know the ad that wants you to buy insurance for $9.95 a month?  Well, they sent me a list of their policy prices.  You're not really going to get very much for your $9.95.  I'll just show the figures for Age 75.   Cost per month / Coverage 

Female:     $9.95 / $762         $49.95 / $3810        $89.55 / $6858       $119.40 / $9144

Male:         $9.95 / $549        $49.95 / $2745        $89.55 / $4941        $119.40 / $6588

I wonder how many folks were shocked to find out how many $9.95 units they would have to buy every month in order to have any coverage at all.  

Now for something light.  I found this adorable image on the web and just had to share.  I hope it brings you a giggle to start your day.

All I can say is Please, not my car!  Now I'm off to enjoy some blog reading.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Glad you wren't hit much by the storm, but poor Deanne. It is domething that you often loose power with storms etc. Here it happens almost never, probably because all cables are under ground. It's a difference.
In every country insurances are different built up, even here between them. It's just best to see what (and not only amount but what dammage)is covered and what it will cost you and of course you can always take a more expensive insurance with more coverage. Just now the insurance companies decided that when you have dammage from water(floods) or a prolapse from eg. earthquake or something like it most will not be insured anymore. They have nerves!!
(Hope you did receive my mail)
Have a wonderful day, till tomorrow

That nor-easter earlier this week did not cause any damages or outages here in Nashua, NH, where we live but sorry to read that Deanne's town lost power for so long. water levels were higher on the Nashua River but as we're on the 5th floor we had no flooding worries. That $9.95 insurance offer was quite interesting to read about and hopefully no one would fall for that scam.
