8 Tips for a Great BBQ

Are you throwing a barbecue this summer and want it to be better than your neighbors? Be sure to plan ahead and consider including these 8 tips into your BBQ to ensure that guests leave saying yours was the best all summer:

  1. Theme – Pick a theme to encourage party-goers to dress up. This will also help you pick the music for the fun day.
  2. Entertainment – Pair the music with the party theme and put out theme-related games out for everyone to play.
  3. What you Grill Matters – Don’t stick with the typical burgers and hot dogs. Opt for some shrimp and pepper kabobs or tri-tip steak.
  4. Safety First – Follow all grilling safety regulations and be sure to follow the appropriate safe food handling rules to ensure no guests leave with food poisoning. That will surely make the competition speed past you.
  5. Plan Ahead – Marinate your meat 24 hours ahead to ensure great flavor.
  6. Be Considerate – Account for any allergies or any vegan or vegetarian guests that probably won’t enjoy that nice hunk of meat you’ve got there on the grill. Have a variety beverage selections as well.
  7. Don’t be cheap – If you’re going to have a party, have a party. Don’t buy cheap meat that your guests won’t enjoy.
  8. Most importantly – ENJOY! Don’t spend the whole time grilling. Be sure to show your guests how much you appreciate their presence.

Summer Kid Safety Tips

Summer is a time for relaxing and fun, but all that can be ruined if one of your children are injured. It is important that you take the necessary safety precautions to ensure your summer is unforgettable for the right reasons.

  • Avoid tick bites by dressing your children in protective clothing and putting tick, insect, and bug repellant where skin is exposed. Also, try to keep your child away from overgrown grassy areas. After outdoor fun, you should perform a tick check on each family member in your home.
  • If your child will be using a bicycle, scooter, skates, rollerblades, skateboard, or any other fun riding equipment, be sure to follow helmet safety. Be a good example and wear a helmet yourself! They protect us from serious head injuries.
  • Be sure to practice sun safety. Dress your children in protective clothing and apply a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15. Sunscreen should be reapplied throughout the day.

Temporary Auto Insurance 101

If you are an infrequent driver, you may want to put your money towards a temporary car insurance policy as opposed to a long-term auto insurance policy. Temporary insurance policies are those that provide the necessary coverage for specific dates of driving. This type of insurance is not automatically renewable and is only suitable for those that fit the necessary criteria.

Criteria for Temporary Auto Insurance:

  • If you are between policies but still need to drive
  • If you are insuring a rental car for a cross-country road trip
  • If you will have house guests that need to drive for a short period of time
  • If you have temporary ownership of a vehicle
  • If you have a vehicle in storage that needs protection
  • If you have a car that you will be selling soon
  • If you have out of town visitors that will be using a car for a short period of time
