Re: Home Ownership Questions/Advice
Make sure you have good homeowners insurance, and theft policies. Evaluate them regularly. Make two copies of an inventory of possessions. Keep one on hand, and one at another secure location. Should the first copy be destroyed, stolen or lost. Make sure your policy covers damage from broken glass, not just replacing broken glass. Not all policies do.
Remember to change your furnace filters regularly, I choose the first day of every odd numbered month. (Of course, I have asthmatics with allergies living with me). Filters can be purchased by the case from a LOCAL hardware store much cheaper than the chains, just figure out what you need, and ask them to order them for you, you can save almost half.
Have both a home defense and emergency plan worked out. Fires, floods, severe weather, power outages, bad guys, etc, etc. Think about all of them.
If you have a basement with a sump pump does it have battery backup?
Whenever you get mad over a called strike or ball on a close pitch, it's the equivalent of being mad at the QB pump-faking one time before throwing a pass in your average NFL game. ---Caveat Emperor
