Insurance has become one heck of a huge industry, not only here in the U.S. of A. but all over the world. I have a good friend that moved to “The Land of Down Under” several years ago, I so glad to be able to say that we keep in contact pretty well via emails every couple of weeks or so. She always has such exciting news and stories to share in her emails and I always look forward to hearing from her. She sends me links to various sites in Australia to check out and I find them entertaining and interesting as well.
She is currently shopping for cheap funeral insurance, which threw me for a loop, funeral insurance isn’t something that people our age are generally looking into, but probably should be. You never know what will happen and when. She sent me a link to a local company, which is a well established insurance company there, so I took a gander at it for a bit of time last night. It is interesting to see the different types of insurance that they have to offer over there. I mean they have the typical home, auto and real life insurance policies to offer, as one would expect, but they also have Pay As You Drive car insurance, Bicycle insurance, Landlord’s insurance, which I thought was pretty cool.
I wish that we could talk on the phone, but neither one of us can afford those types of phone bills. I’d love to know if she has picked up an accent yet and would love to hear it. I’m sure it would make me giggle! She always had a cute voice to begin with, so I’d love to hear how she sounds now.
