Donating Blood !

On my soapbox again! If it’s not about some great musician, art, or cleaning up the desert, it’s going to be about something VERY IMPORTANT -giving blood !! There is ALWAYS a critical shortage of blood. Only about 15% of the population give blood, even less than that give REGULARLY. If you are able, please do it. I donate at the Antelope Valley Hospital at their blood donor center every 56 days. It is a lovely facility with the nicest people that run it. The nurses are all fabulous and treat everyone with the utmost kindness. The benefit of giving at A.V. Hospital is that the blood stays here in the Antelope Valley and is used to treat local citizens first. I personally have given over 12 gallons of blood, one pint at a time. 
Blood cannot be manufactured, only drawn out of people that are willing to give it. Then, it is processed and filtered and all those other things they do before it is used to SAVE LIVES. You would be surprised at the medications that you can be taking and still give blood, so don’t let the thinking of ” Well, I take this and that so I can’t give blood” stop you ! A simple phone call to the center (949-5622) and they will tell you if you are able. Of course, there are restrictions and you can find out those too. They are open Tues & Thurs. 9 am to 6 pm, Wed 7 am to 4pm, 1st and 3rd Sat of every month 8 am to 1 pm.
The whole process takes about an hour out of your busy day. Think of all the people you can help in this simple way.

New Driver!!

Having a new driver on your auto policy can get pricey.  What many parents don’t know is that Mercury Insurance is one of the best companies out there for your teen driver.  With added discounts the cost could actually put a smile on your face, rather than a frown.  We can apply Good Student discounts, saving you hundreds!! Yes hundreds!! Never let your teen drive without being added to your auto policy. Letting them drive without being covered can have grave consequences. It happens more often than I car to even say.  So before you let your teen get a driver’s license, call your insurance company to request a quote. Make sure it is something you will be able to afford.  The good student discount is great; make your teen carry good grades if they want to have the privilege to drive.
