Protect Yourself!



     This evening I went online to check the news and learned the details of a horrific pileup near New Orleans which left two dead and sixty injured.  This event brought back in vivid detail an incident that happened to me nearly seven years ago.  I had left school to return home to my wife and was drifting up to a light in the left hand turn lane when suddenly out of nowhere an auto making a right hand turn from a four lane highway crossed the center line and slammed into my car.  I was driving a small Nissan that was totaled. Thrown forward so hard that my chest was badly bruised, I spent the next five hours in the ER.  Unfortunately, the man who crashed into my car was able to drive away, a hit and run.  Fortunately for me, I had good insurance, and the insurance company paid for the value of my car under the uninsured motor vehicle clause because they never caught the guy.   Ever since that time, I have had a greater appreciation of the necessity of insurance.

     Finding the best insurance company to meet one's needs can be extremely difficult and frustrating.  In today's economy, getting the best rate possible while obtaining sufficient coverage from a reputable and reliable company can take a lot of time and energy; therefore, it only makes sense to find a group who can take the work out of getting insured.  CI Auto Quotes will find the most competitive rates from very reliable companies and get quotes for anyone needing insurance.  Whether it is a first time need or a desire to find more competitive rates, now is the best time to shop.

Gift ideas


Thanks for the post from Sylvester Campbell

I was using our get.wildblue.com/ satellite internet to look up gift ideas for my friends and family. Christmas is just around the corner, again! It is hard to believe how quickly the holidays come and go. I found a few things for my sisters and parents, but there is still much more shopping to do before the holiday season is over. I actually ordered jewelry boxes for each of my sisters that have each of their initials engraved. I was lucky I got them in time because now they are out of stock. It must take a good bit of time to get the engraving done and shipping this time of year can be a nightmare. It is very convenient to be able to grab a few things here and there for everyone. It helps me avoid the mall, which is a real zoo this time of year. The closest mall is always so busy, especially since there are not that many in the area. It helps to be able to look for thinks online when the stores run out of things too.

The Rosetta Stone

     A fascinating story in history involves the study of language and the Rosetta Stone.  Fascinating facts about an interesting historical culture were brought to light when the Rosetta Stone was discovered in 1799.  While rebuilding a fort in Egypt, a French soldier unearthed a stone with strange markings on it. These markings were demotic, hieroglyphic, and ancient Greek.   Recognizing the possible value of the stone in uncovering the secrets of the Egyptian hieroglyphs, scholars would spend years poring over this stone, trying to discover its secrets.  Eventually success would come to a French scholar by the name of Jean  Champollion.  Using his knowledge of Greek and the Coptic demotic, Champollion was able to eventually translate the hieroglyphs, thus solving a centuries old puzzle.  This remarkable feat in translation and its subsequent results demonstrated the value of language interpretation.

     Today the name Rosetta has been applied to different translation services.  These range from simple language services such as language education to very sophisticated translations for legal, technical and medical areas among others. One such translation agency that excels in this area is the Rosetta Translation agency which is outstanding.  This agency uses highly trained professionals to achieve the highest quality translations.  With the expertise of this company available to him, one can be assured of satisfaction with his translation.  Whether in the area of medicine, law, or business, the value of quality translation cannot be underestimated.

Cruise to the Galapagos Islands


     A fantastic adventure is awaiting in the form of a cruise to the Galapagos Islands.  For anyone who has any scientific curiosity or even a desire to study and enjoy nature, the Galapagos Islands are a virtual heaven on earth.  Blessed with many rare forms of life, the Galapagos Islands will enchant the explorer with its variety.  Some forms of animal life found here borders on extinction and are on the endangered species list. Probably the most well known forms of life are the reptiles that inhabit the islands although the birds also are quite an attraction, especially the finches.  The iguanas, the sea turtles, tortoises, lizards, penguins, cormorants, sea lions and frigate birds among others all make the Galapagos Islands a fascinating place to visit.  However, the cruise itself is a really great experience, making this a very special trip.

     A Galapagos cruise is a unique experience that will never be forgotten.  It can be a wonderful time for relaxation, fun and entertainment as well as a time of learning and adventure.  The Galapagos cruise ship will provide a fun time for all with plenty of entertainment on board.  Guests can participate in Karaoke, theme plays, games in the game room as well as some special activities designed for education.  Snorkeling is an activity many enjoy in the waters off the Galapagos Islands as well as the hiking inland.  Galapagos cruises will leave one with many good memories that will remain for a lifetime.
