A m2con kinda day!

  Do you ever have one of those days that you’re just a little overwhelmed, but in a good way? I had one of those on Thursday May 2, 2013 and it was the folks at Mannix Marketing that made it possible.  And it’s funny because at the last minute, I was having second thoughts […]

You're kidding!

So I had the van this morning since it’s Wednesday and Grandpa’s taxi is transporting all three and the Riskmobile is a little too small for Lucas! And since I’m the insurance guy who breathes “safety”, I like my cars clean, especially the windows so you can see clearly. SO the van was still grimey […]


Are you somebody who tries to “do it all”? I can sometimes be like that. As I get older though, I see the wisdom in allowing other people to help. Here is a good example.       The picture is of Jim Mclaughlin http://mclaughlinphoto.com.  He is VERY good at what he does. When we […]

Sunday Reflection

I’ve had a couple days to reflect on the Dinner. And the more I think about it, the more I confirm that the most important aspect of our lives are RELATIONSHIPS.

Lower Your Car Insurance Costs

Car insurance premiums often take a big bite out of a family’s budget. You may, however, be paying too much for this coverage. The following are several approaches you can use to reduce your auto insurance costs. Choose higher deductibles, particularly if you currently have a low collision or other-than-collision deductible, such as $100 or […]

Squeeze More From Life

You can go it alone, or you can go it together. Whenever possible we prefer to share the journey, which is why when the Adirondack Regional Chamber of Commerce offered a screening of Lemonade as a resource/inspiration for people in the community, we wanted to help. This economy certainly hasn’t been easy on anyone, but […]

Kathie Takes the Cake

We’re insurance guys, we pay attention to detail and try to always practice what we preach. When you hold yourself up to a certain standard, you begin to see people in a different light, often times identifying those people who can push you to become better, whether it’s through competition or inspiration. Kathie Duncan recently […]
