Play’n games, the video kind

I really don’t have a big topic to talk about this week so I think I might share a couple of ‘time-killers’ I’ve been playing lately. I’ll also share another that a friend has been touting a lot lately.

I’ll start by making this completely clear: I don’t have much money. There, I said it. That was a load off of my chest.

I’ll start from the beginning.

When I bought my first vehicle I may have been put under my parent’s insurance. I honestly can’t remember. Perhaps they didn’t want to dump too much on me at once (car payment, new things to learn..). But after my first wreck I remember who I had. It was an account of my own with a small, “no-name” company. Seriously, I can’t remember the name and have no documents saved from that far back. I could swear it had the word “Mills” somewhere in the name but a quick Google search turns up nothing. I gentleman who went to our church at the time was an agent with an office nearby.

I never had a single problem with that company. I only moved on [Read More…]
