Debbie -

I think you nailed it!

Nancy -

I'm glad your angry, and I hope that expressing your feelings will 
slowly dissipate the terrible loss. The shopping might be fun...

We all spent time in Hartford, but really, one wonders about insurance 
companies these days. Hope State Farm comes through in the end.
