Exactly! So what's the big interest? Why is it so popular? Why are all the kids glued to it like it's the best thing on earth? I don't get it....

Last November I had a meeting with a financial/insurance advisor to discuss updating our life insurance stuff. In the chat I mentioned the husband had been having chemo, she asked for details and then asked if we'd claimed on our trauma cover - nope, had even realised we had it to be honest. Anyway she got more details, sent me a claim form but telling me we probably wouldn't get anything and it would take the insurance company months to decide they'd give us nothing. Found $58k in my bank account this morning

We are officially no longer brassic. **** me, I can't stop smiling

Good for you. Nice to actually get something from insurance. Never knew about coverage for trauma. Good thing she asked you.

Nice to know you got something of a silver lining Moneypenny.

================================================== ===

I am not sure this is a smile, but the 'Wogistan' statement from NZ politician Richard Prosser is so outrageous I could not help but laugh.

That is a relief. I know all about marginal finances and it's no fun at all at all.
