It also has the frequent effect of making insurance unaffordable to some of the poorest people in the country, those who live and work in inner cities. To eliminate these inequities, laws should be passed mandating rate-setting based more on the individual policyholder’s driving record, mileage driven, and years of driving experience and less upon residence. “Good driver” discounts of up to 20 percent should also be mandated by law. This would act as an incentive to drivers to obey traffic laws, which would have the beneficial side effect of reducing accidents and saving lives.

Not only are her photographs beyond beautiful, she’s also in Oregon, which is one of my favorite places to recharge and drink in the wonders of the natural world! I’m sending New Year’s best wishes to the Family Blair — may the paths of your journeys lead to much love, laughter, and wisdom.

I’m bookmarking the finger-knit wreath for next year, too. It’s so good for kids (and adults) to have a hobby that allows them to exercise motor skills and relax the critical-thinking parts of their brains. She also has a post about five-strand braid bracelets, which I’m trying now with my seven-year-old son. We’re preparing twenty-four of them for the classroom Valentine’s Day party next year. :)

My son is sitting at my office (snow day) finger knitting an incredibly long strand trying to figure out what to do with it – garland? Infinity scarf ? And, now, wreath? Thanks.

Joyeux noel et bonne annee Gabrielle!
