(no subject)

Trying to get some work done, but can't concentrate. The PM's just been on the air addressing the peeps asking for a bit more time before calling the election. Has pledged to call election as soon as the G inquiry reports. I don't know which I will hate worse, a campaign now (well in June - hell time for me at work) or in Jan/Feb after the report - ugg - campaigning in the dead of winter.

Would love to listen to commentary on it, but all I've got here is the conservative station and their bunch of wing-nuts calling in (don't get me wrong those are two separate categories, have heard some pretty wingy Libs too) It just seems that the nuts call the radio.

Started listening to the TV address at the father-in-law's but couldn't hear the opposition rebuttals over hubby and dad of hubby so had to retreat to car to listen to the rest.

Arg. Must concentrate on work!

And what exactly is insurance for?

Its official, there will be no riding of the bikes for hubby and I this summer. Seems after paying decent rates for four vehicles to our insurer for 15+ years, and after only 1 accident 13 or so years ago and no speeding or other tickets, hubby claimed 2 at-faults in just over a year - one cost our insurer nothing, because the other person didn't claim (don't ask me why hubby freaked out and decided to call our insurer) and the other was for around $500 - our insurer dropped us. Yes, both of us. Two accidents costing them $500 and see ya later.

So we managed to find a new insurer for our car and truck, but can't find anyone who will touch our bikes for less than 2k. As much as I love, love, love riding, I'm not prepared to pay $2k for half a year or so of riding.

But the 'great' news is that next season, one of the accidents will be off the record and the old company will take us back.
