Testimonial: "Well-Qualified, Trustworthy and Caring"

Testimonial:

"Ron Dutton was recommended to my husband and I, as an insurance agent that we could trust. He came to our home on multiple occasions, explaining in great detail the different managed, and Medigap Supplement Plan options, available in Georgia.

Ron Dutton listened, answered our 'many' questions, and then offered us different options to consider, based on our health issues and budget. Once we made a decision, with his guidance, Ron completed the complicated forms, and submitted them for us.

Prior to meeting with Ron Dutton, I was quoted higher prices from other agents for the same supplement plans, and left with nothing but unanswered questions. We were so relieved to have Ron Dutton to rely on during this confusing move from traditional health insurance to Medicare. We both highly recommend Mr. Ron Dutton as a well-qualified, trustworthy, and caring insurance agent to assist you with any insurance needs you may have.

This was Bound to Happen

This was Bound to Happen

Early one morning a highly successful businessman was leaving for the office. As he opened the door to his car a stray dog sleeping under the car suddenly came out and bit him on the leg. He got very angry and quickly picked up a few rocks and threw them at the dog, none hit the dog, and the dog ran away.

When he got to the office the businessman called a meeting of his managers and during the meeting he directed his anger for the dog toward them. The managers, then upset by the anger of their boss, unloaded their anger on the employees working under them. The chain reaction kept going through the lower level employees until the anger reached the office peon.

When the peon got home his wife opened the door and asked him, "Why are you so late getting home?" The peon, still upset by the anger thrown at him by the staff slapped his wife and said, "I didn't go to the office to play football, I went to work so don't irritate me with your stupid questions."

So, now the wife is upset that she was scolded and slapped for no reason. She dumped her anger on their son who was watching TV and slapped him. "Is this all you can do, don't you have homework? Turn off the TV."

The son gets upset now, walks out of the house and sees a passing dog looking at him. He picks up a rock and hits the dog in his anger and frustration. The dog, getting hit by a rock runs away.

This is the same dog that bit the businessman that morning.

Moral: This was bound to happen. We often reap what we have sown. This is how life works. We all need to concentrate more on how we are living and behaving. Do good - Good will come. Do wrong - Wrong will come.

Self-Appraisal

Self-Appraisal A young boy went into a drug store, grabbed a soda carton and pulled it over to the telephone. He climbed onto the carton so he could reach the phone and proceeded to punch in a phone number. The store owner observed this and listened to the conversation.

Boy: "Lady, can you give me the job of cutting your lawn?"

Woman: (at the other end of the phone line) "I already have someone to mow my lawn."

Boy: "Lady, I will cut your lawn for half the price of the person who cuts your lawn now."

Woman: "I'm very satisfied with the person presently cutting my lawn."

Boy: (with more perseverance) "Lady, I'll even sweep your curb and sidewalk so you will have the prettiest lawn in town."

Woman: "No, thank you, I'm really happy with the person I have doing the work."

With a smile on his face, the little boy hung up the phone. The store owner, who was listening to all this, walked over to the boy.

Store Owner: "Son, I like your attitude. I like that positive spirit and I'd like to offer you a job."

Boy: "No, Thanks".

Store Owner: "But you were really pleading for a job."

Boy: "No Sir, I was just checking my performance at the job I already have. I am the one who is now mowing the lawn for the lady I was talking to."

Moral: This is what we call Self-Appraisal. We need to always be looking at ourselves, identifying our strengths and weaknesses and working hard to improve.

Uncle Sam Day: Sept. 13th

Who was Uncle Sam? Was he a real person? Just a symbol?The truth is . . . he was both. Sam Wilson was a meat packer from New York who supplied meat in barrels to soldiers in the War of 1812. In order to differentiate one barrel from another, he stamped a "U.S." on those headed for the troops.

It wasn't long before soldiers started talking about deliveries from "Uncle Sam." The nickname stuck and Sam Wilson eventually became a symbol of America.

The first illustration of "Uncle Sam" did not look like the picture above. Published in an 1861 Harper's Weekly, it depicted a young man with a bandana on his head, wearing a striped vest. It wasn't until cartoonist Thomas Nast created the familiar figure we know today that America and other nations adopted the iconic image as a representation of America.

The U.S. Army eventually adopted Uncle Sam as their official recruiter in a World War I campaign, "I Want You For the U.S. Army."

President George W. Bush proclaimed September 13th National Uncle Sam Day in 1989.

Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. Ovarian Cancer is one of the most deadly of women's cancers. Each year, approximately 21,980 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer. In 2014 more than 14,000 women in the United States died from this disease. It is estimated by the World Health Organization that over 238,000 new cases are diagnosed annually resulting in more than 152,000 deaths worldwide.

This cancer typically occurs in women in their fifties and sixties with the median age being 63. Many women don't seek help until the disease has begun to spread, but if detected at its earliest stage, the five year survival rate is more than 93%. The symptoms of ovarian cancer are often subtle and easily confused with other ailments. The four most common symptoms are:

• Bloating • Pelvic or abdominal pain
• Urinary urgency or frequency
• Difficulty eating or feeling full quickly


There is no adequate screening test for ovarian cancer at this time which is one of the reasons why this cancer is discovered in later stages.

Talk to your doctor if symptoms last more than 2-3 weeks. You are your best advocate.

Elaine Dutton
BANANA PIE:
2 bananas, sliced
½ cup powdered sugar
16 oz. mascarpone cheese
zest of 2 limes
1/8 tsp kosher salt
1 store-bought graham cracker crust

TOPPING:
½ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1 cup whipped cream
1 banana, sliced


1. In a food processor, combine the bananas, powdered sugar, mascarpone, lime zest and salt and process until smooth.
2. Pour the banana-mascarpone mixture into the crust. Use the back of a spoon or an offset spatula to distribute the mixture in the crust.
3. Freeze for a minimum of 2 hours, or overnight.
4. For the topping: Toast the coconut flakes in a small pan, over medium high heat, until the edges are slightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Stay vigilant because coconut flakes brown very quickly.
5. Remove the pie from the freezer and top it with the whipped cream. Add a sprinkle of toasted coconut flakes and the sliced bananas. Slice and serve.
