Watching Nate Perform

Yesterday we had the wonderful opportunity of listening to Nate & the Granite Youth Symphony play in the park at Hurricane, Utah. Every summer this symphony of select students from the Granite School District in Salt Lake city go on tour. This year they traveled all over the south west of the US. They've been to the San Diego Zoo, Sea World, the beaches of southern California, they went to see the Blue Man Group, then the Grand Canyon, and then yesterday they stopped in a town near us before they went on to Cedar City to watch Fiddler on the Roof, and then finish the trip off in Bryce Canyon. At each place they perform before they get to site see they perform. I was so grateful that I was able to listen to them. During the school year their songs are classical, but for the summer tour they are a whole lot of fun! It was extremely hot, EXTREMELY, I can't imagine playing (especially wind, which, by the way, Nate plays the Clarinet). Living down in southern Utah I don't get to see my "little" brother perform much, so this was so fun for me to have the chance to watch him again. Especially since he graduated this year so this is his last time touring with the group! Honestly, though, what I liked the most is that I had a great opportunity to take great pictures of Nate performing! Good Job Nate!!

Thinking about getting a car insurance quote?

A growing number of people are dropping their auto insurance to try to save money, according to a recent study by the Insurance Research Council (IRC). If the current rate of unemployment continues, the IRC estimates that the national uninsured rate will climb from 13.8 percent in 2007 to 16.3 percent in 2010. With that many people driving without coverage, it's dangerous to be uninsured. But how much car insurance do you really need?
If you're like many people feeling the pinch, your inclination is to get the bare minimum of insurance coverage required by the law in your state. That's a good place to start, though those minimums may not fully protect you -- or your assets -- if you file a claim. We recommend getting more than the minimum coverage unless you are driving a beater and have no assets to protect.
