This might save your bacon!

May this Medicare blog post find you in great health with your Medicare Insurance working properly.  This might save your bacon! Read on … 

Plato with purple pig on his head for The Big 65.

It’s been incredibly wet here in Colorado the last week, so Plato was enjoying the sun and playing with his newest toy. He loves a good squeaky toy!

See the sofa cushion behind him? It got soaked because a hailstorm put holes in one of the patio furniture covers – more than an inch of hail.

Of course, like an idiot, I put the huge, sopping cushion in the washer to try to run the spin cycle. Five minutes later, we heard this piercing alarm going off.

Thank goodness Q had put water sensors under the washer, the fridge, the dishwasher and the water heater that were connected to an app on her phone. Thanks to my better half, we were able turn off the washer before I destroyed the floor.

I bring this up because client Ed in North Carolina wasn’t so lucky. He and his wife bought a new washer from Lowe’s eight months ago. It was defective with a slow persistent leak that ruined their entire floor and has forced them out of the house, into a hotel for the last 30 days.

Here’s a link to an article about inexpensive water sensors that sure saved our bacon.

They are easy to install, and some companies will give you a discount on your homeowners insurance just for putting them in.

You know my focus is Medicare insurance, but I always try to help clients avoid unnecessary expenses!

Honeybees in Colorado for The Big 65 and Karl Bruns-Kyler.

Many of you know I’m raising bees again this year and the first hive inspection looked great. I didn’t see any mites yet. The bees are in full production, so I had to add another box to one of the two hives.

Keep your fingers crossed.

I’ve received a ton of calls about dental plans. I’m in the process of adding some new plans so if you have questions on this topic, give me a shout.

Our French cousins in Colorado with The Big 65.

Our French cousins, Flo’s parents, are visiting us. We hadn’t seen them in thirty years, how crazy is that?

It’s been fun to have guests, we’re just sorry the weather has been so bad. As they say in France, c’est la vie!

We attended a concert at the music school, El Sistema, where Flo volunteers, lot’s of squeaky violins and enthusiastic young inner city musicians.

We are very proud that Flo was successful in bringing in a $50,000 grant for the program. She is an impressive young woman.

Buckeye client Dave's project built with his own hands.

This may look like an ordinary shed but I’m here to tell you it is the work of a master craftsman.

Buckeye client Dave felled 17 pine trees, milled the wood with a buddy, and together they constructed this entire project themselves.

Not shabby for 77, eh? I think Dave’s a superhero!

Or as Christopher Robin said to Winnie the Pooh:
