Gundam Style

I am so tired of the Gundam Style craze, every time I turn on the radio I am bombarded with this song. It's not even in English so we have to listen to it all the time, I'll grant it to you that the tune is catchy but can we just say the 15 minutes are over and get back to English music on our radio stations.

Insurance Hunter Online Comparison Made Easy

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Insurance Hunter for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Well school's back in for the fall and with moving our kids are learning all new routines and expectations. One thing we quickly discovered is that people do not respect school zones and drop off locations. Even with reduced speed limits in school zones I see speeding drivers flying by every day when I am dropping off the kids at school. I recently read the Insurance Hunter’s survey on driver safety in school zones and discovered that many facts say the same thing. The survey shares that over 66percent of parents drive their children to school which certainly adds to the congestion and confusion around drop off times at school zones. I can certainly understand the results from the survey that states 38 percent of parents have not recieved information from their childrens school regarding drop off/pick up proceedures and locations. We were new this year and there was no information sent home with all the forms and paperwork not one mention of the proceedures. I really found the Ontario School Zone Safety Survey rang so true with our family it seemed to be so accurate and I encourage you to check out the results for yourself and see how the results compare to your families experiences. If you are currently looking for information on insurance programs and options for your auto insurance needs you can review the Insurance Hunters website to get online comparisons on home, auto, travel and more quickly and have your quote followed up with a qualified insurance broker to ensure you have the best insurance options for you and your families needs.

New TV Season

It's that time of year when all the new shows are starting their runs and old favorites are returning. One of our families favorite shows so far this season is the Revolution. We began watching it and quickly it became a family favorite. We now have to DVR the show every week and sit down Tuesday Night and Watch it with the entire family. It really is a fun adventure that offers something for our entire family to keep us interested and wanting more. The premise is a world 15 years after a massive blackout the wipes out all electronic and mechanical devises but at the same time telling the back story that happened along the way. We can't wait to see what happens next.
