Never ceases to amaze me!
The internet is a blessing! It never ceases to amaze me all the things it can accomplish for you. I can stay in touch with friends; I can check out information which in the past would have required a trip to the library; and I can do business like check balances, pay bills and today rather then having to drive to Laredo to get car insurance for the USA, I was able to do it on the internet!!! Amazing. In the past, my local agent wrote the policy for the month or two that I was going to be in the States but, he no longer offers that service. Or, prior to that, I drove to Laredo, went to an agency and got a policy - about a two hour episode plus the fact that I had to drive through Nuevo Laredo and into Laredo (which I dislike) and since I don't usually spend the night in Laredo it delayed my trip............so today I contacted an agency in Laredo who was able to do the WHOLE thing on the internet and the 3 month policy was less expensive then the one month that I used to do here! Amazing. I now have the policy in hand and it is the same US insurance company that I used before.............I'm ready to head to Texas and never had to even leave my house! I LOVE living in this day and time.
