Thanks Ken, Whatever I make will go toward Getting my Roof Re-Covered....

Funny Story (NOT)... :!con_p_roll_eyes:

Paid home insurance (Prudential), on this House for the Past 17 Years.
Had Large Tree Limbs Fall in my yard (a few months back), Destroying a good Part of my Yard Fence. About 5 sections.. Also Had to Pay to get it all cleaned up.......

So That's ONE Claim in 17 Years..... They Almost Doubled our Monthly Payment.
My Wife Called up to Complain, and They Sent a Guy out to RE-Evaluate our Home...
Now Their Saying their going to Cancel Us if we Don't get the Roof Coated.... by the end of Sept.

To Top it Off, the Guy Emails Us and now Says, we Now have to have the Roof Shingled.
(It's Never Been Shingled, Even When they First inspected the House.).

Insurance Companies Are Like a Legal Mafia !

Pay us every month for 17 years, Use Us once and Well drop you ! :!con_6:

It's a British company which has clearly lost its way Stoney, ..but indirectly is pretty much what TTiP is all about.

I would recommend you look at bypassing the US office & take it to London ..the sort of tactic they are playing is one belonging to sh1theel scammers, not insurance.

Do not stand for this!

Glad to hear it, & make sure you complain to the regional / state manager so it cannot be hidden by a local office!

Agree with Gus. Things to also use as effective leverage is "discussing" a potiential report filing to State insurance Regulators, Letter of complaint to State attorney generals office, and BBB. This could save the fee to "Lawyer up" just for an initial attorney letter of complain with office letterhead. If part of legal club then often they will have a lawyer do the complaint letter for free.

BTW Love the new patterns. Sorry your vacation to DR was all shits and no giggles. Can send some Cipro Bro if their is a next time.

Just a Quick Update, I faught with the insurance, and things will remain as is.
I will need to get the roof coated, (it needs it) But it's not getting Shingled.
They Based the whole thing on a 3/4" Slant. - How F'd is that !


On StoneyKins - I had a TON of Custom Work Patterns / carves.

I'm Now down to the Last Carve, and My Plate is empty !
When I'm not HERE, I'm either Carving or Making Custom Patterns...

Been Doing 16 Hour Days, (and Feeling it) !
After the Cave - I'm taking a very needed nap.
(Well after I get back from the Shipper)..

I will be Making More Site Patterns Tomorrow - Regardless if I get any Custom Work.

(You Guys are Very Important to the Site,
So I want to make sure there are New Patterns Added and Often)..


I'm trying to Juggle everything.
So If I get any custom Orders, I will work on those Tuesday.

Just a quick update, 10/5/16


I have (1) Last Carve to Do.

and about 4 Custom Patterns - then I'm caught up on the custom Stuff..
This has been a real Busy Year carving wise (I carved about 150 Pumpkins so far)..

Most go right in the box and get shipped - I don't photograph them all..
I have enough photo's of Logo's to get my point across, and Carving Ability - LMAO !

Plus I carve in my basement - and the computer is two floors up.
So Yea I pass on a lot of photo's... :!con_p_wink:

Every Year (Halloween Month) - I treat myself to a new Toy/Gadget.

This one was for Carving !

Picked up a Pair of Hesh 2 Wireless headphones from Skull Candy.

These things have Awesome Sound Quality
(I love that it kills the noise of the Dremel and Air Compressor)

I had to go Wireless - I need to get up and Move-around alot to Box Kins, glue patterns etc..

Pairing to the Ipod was no Issue.

For Some Odd Reason, it took me a good 1/2 Hour to get them to Pair/Link to my Windows 10 Desktop. Don't know what I did, but it sees them now as soon as I turn the Headphones on.

The Only Downside is the Size, I'm used to wearing thin around the ear sets.
But I wanted the Large Ear Cushions to Drown out - those Carving Noiz'ez.

Now I look Like Princess Leia. - LMAO !
