"Testimonial--"Friendly, Personable & Dedicated"

"Ron Dutton's knowledge and expertise in the health insurance marketplace have helped my wife with her health insurance problems. She retired before her Medicare age and was looking at extremely large premiums and high deductibles from marketplace. My wife is in good health so Ron suggested short term health coverage which can be renewed until Medicare begins for her. With higher deductibles, Ron was able to find the perfect policy for my wife and our budget which saved us a great deal on premiums. Beyond Ron's health insurance experience, he is friendly, personable, and dedicated to making sure that we were satisfied with his suggestions and the product itself. I highly recommend Ron."

The Law of the Garbage Truck

One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport. We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches!

The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us. My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was really friendly. So I asked, 'Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!' This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call, 'The Law of the Garbage Truck.'

He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they'll dump it on you. Don't take it personally, just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Don't take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets.

The Hedgehogs

It was the coldest winter ever. Many animals died because of the cold.

The hedgehogs, realizing the situation, decided to group together to keep warm. This way they covered and protected themselves; but the quills of each one wounded their closest companions.

After a while, they decided to distance themselves one from the other and they began to die, alone and frozen. So they had to make a choice: either accept the quills of their companions or disappear from the Earth.

Wisely, they decided to go back to being together. They learned to live with the little wounds caused by the close relationship with their companions in order to receive the heat that came from the others. This way they were able to survive.

The best relationship is not the one that brings together perfect people, but when each individual learns to live with the imperfections of others then the other person's good qualities can be admired.

Dear Clients & Friends,

The 4th of July is still a few weeks away, but every year there's a troubling situation that could be prevented, and it has to do with fireworks and pets. Check out the article below, especially if you have a pet.

As the summer goes into full bloom, outdoor outings and activities naturally become commonplace. Take safety seriously. Commit to study safety measures and weather conditions before you go boating, hiking, swimming, or even barbecuing. A few minutes spent studying safety can save a lifetime of difficulties.

Please think about taking a fresh look at your insurance policies. I am ready for your phone call. Call me today.

Furry Friends Fear Fireworks

The number of lost pets skyrockets around July 4th each year. You can guess the reason: animals are afraid of fireworks and run away. This year, take some precautions to make sure your favorite pet doesn't become a statistic. According to a 2017 article by, there are a few things you can do:

• Tags. Make sure your animal's identification tag is accurate, current, and firmly attached.

• Chips. If you are thinking you want a microchip implant for your pet so that you can find Fido when he's lost, now might be the best time to do that.

• Pics. Snap some good pictures of your pet, up close and full-bodied. If your pet becomes lost, these photos could be a valuable tool to help in the search.

• Indoors. Keep the pet indoors during the fireworks. Secure all windows and doors and consider creating an enclosed, safe space for your pet to take cover when the loud noises start. You might even have white noise or soft music playing during and after the fireworks. There are even some music products specifically for pets.

• Distractions. Treat your pet to something while you're away at the fireworks. Maybe your dog enjoys a frozen toy, or your cat would enjoy some catnip. Give them things to distract them from the anxiety.

• Home. Consider staying home if your pet is especially skittish.

In a few weeks, when the excitement of the holiday comes along, make sure your pets are taken care of.

Elaine's Recipe of the Month  

Sweet Potato Lasagna
Elaine Dutton 
5 Roma tomatoes or 2 cups low-sodium marinara sauce  
1 tablespoon olive oil  
1 tablespoon minced garlic  
2 teaspoons dried oregano  
1 teaspoon ground dried sage  
1 teaspoon dried rosemary  
1 pound 95% lean ground beef  
Sea salt and black pepper  
1 cup low-fat ricotta cheese 
1 egg white, lightly beaten  
Olive oil spray or cooking spray  
2 large sweet potatoes, cut lengthwise into 1/8 inch slices  
1 cup shredded reduced fat mozzarella
Fresh basil and sliced green onion for garnisha

1. Preheat oven to broil. Place tomatoes on parchment-lined baking sheet and broil until outsides are browned and blistered.  
2. Set oven to 400˚ F.  
3. To a nonstick skillet over medium heat, add olive oil and garlic. Cook for about 2 minutes to flavor the oil, being careful not to burn garlic. Add oregano, sage and rosemary, cook until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Add beef to skillet and cook, breaking it up as you do, until nearly all meat is brown, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes to skillet and gently mash to create tomato sauce. Stir sauce in with meat and break up meat with spatula until no chunks remain.  
4. Remove from heat and allow sauce to thicken. Season to taste with salt and pepper.  
5. In a bowl whisk together ricotta and egg white.  
6. Spray a cast-iron skillet or 9x13 inch casserole dish with olive oil spray, then add enough slices of sweet potato to cover bottom in a single layer. Add one third of meat sauce to make one layer, then top with half of ricotta mixture. Repeat using rest of ricotta. Top with remaining sweet potato slices, then a final layer of meat sauce. Sprinkle dish with mozzarella.  
7. Cover with aluminum foil and bake until the sweet potato slices are soft and the flavors of the layers have melded, about 50 minutes.  
8. Remove foil for the final 5 minutes of baking so cheese browns slightly.
9. Let cool for 5 minutes and garnish with basil and green onion.
