You know you’re in the month of October when everything you order has some type of Pumpkin spice included. Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Lattes and Pumpkin bread are popular at this time of year.  However, breakfast recently at a local diner included “Pumpkin Pancakes” – I think that’s where I draw the line.

Did you know that Native Americans used Pumpkins for medicinal purposes?  Maybe they knew that Obamacare would be here soon and needed to get healthy.  Pumpkin seeds were also brought back to Europe by Columbus to be planted and fed to pigs (or used in pancakes).

Pilgrims also invented pumpkin beer.  It’s funny to see how we’ve progressed using squash as a medicine to making beer (maybe that’s the medicinal part).  How we ever came to carving these orange vegetables into scary faces is beyond me.

Speaking of scary, there is a lot of media attention regarding the impending health care reform.  What to do, what not to do, or whether it’s just doo doo.  Just know that we at ACS Insurance are here with you every step of the way.  Like watching a child from birth, we have been watching the law grow from its inception, through its infancy, and now starting to walk.  We even watch when its face gets squished when something doesn’t work right or leaves a bad taste in the mouth (kind of like eating pumpkin pancakes).

We understand the implications of Health Care Reform, and are here to help.  We are just a phone call or email away from your questions being answered.
