It’s a great time of year to be Thankful.  Even if you don’t have a lot of blessing to count at this time of year, I thought I would give you a few of my beliefs – you can borrow them or put them on the dart board – I’m good either way.

  • I believe that Tryptophan is something that someone made up in order to take a nap on Thanksgiving. Either to avoid doing the dishes or watching football.
  • I believe that Thanksgiving should be a monthly event, getting family and friends together to show that they are truly loved.
    • Unless of course, you have that crazy, dysfunctional family, then you by all means you need to meet bi-weekly.  That way, it will show that you are all crazy…and can also keep your self-esteem in-check – in case you’re starting to feel good about yourself.
  • I believe that yams along with Easter Peeps (so as not to discriminate) should be banned from all celebrations.  After all, aren’t yams just s’mores for grown-ups?  Who decided that marshmallows go with vegetables anyway?  Chocolate, yes. Vegetables, no.
  • I believe that whoever decided that putting food into a crevice of an animal should be analyzed. (My mom used to do a spinach stuffing…which drew a wrinkly nose from any date you brought home. My brother would be the only one to eat it).
  • And finally…I believe that I honestly have the greatest job in the world.  I not only get to help folks with their insurance needs, but get to build relationships and help plan for their future.

This month’s Made-In-Nevada winner is Mark Laudenslager with LT Automotive.  Mark is a client of ACS Insurance and owns a full service auto shop committed to high quality auto repair and auto service.  You can reach Mark at or 775-828-7373.

You too can be part of our monthly drawing by either “liking” us on Facebook, calling for a quote, or referring someone to our agency.  This month, you can even email me your “beliefs” and will be put into our drawing as well.

Our offices will be closed on Thursday, November 26th & Friday, November 27th so that we can figure out what to do with the fruitcake we received from across the country.  (I believe they can be door stops or used for skeet shooting).

Until next month,

“Silly people, serious about insurance.”


Who really thinks that spiced egg nog is the coolest, weirdest part of the holiday.
