Yep. That's him. They still aren't back in the house. The insurance company is really trying to stick it to him. They are threatening to move them back into the house before it's even finished and without a kitchen, which will be finished at some point.
They are also refusing to replace some of the large ticket things such as:
1. His large screen TV: $4,000
2. Treadmill $3,000
3. Computer Tower $3,000
4. His girl friends fur coat.
Plus other items.
But get this.... The DVD player that was on top of the TV is being thrown out and replaced. The DVD player cost under $100.00. The monitor and mouse for the computer are being thrown out, but the tower which was next to them isn't. Cost of the monitor and mouse, under $150.00. The fur coat is not being thrown out, but all of the coats that were on either side of it are.
My brother is getting a lawyer. The treadmill was 6 weeks old at the time of the fire and had a 10 year warranty. The fire voided that warranty. The TV was 6 months old and like the treadmill now has a voided warranty.
My brother has loss prevention and the insurance company is supposed to restore him to his pre-fire state. If they give him the stuff back that no longer has warranties on them, and something breaks during the time he would have normally had a warranty, he's out of pocket money.
|Those trees are adorable! Is it just tinsle and lights wrapped around coat hangers? I'm going to have to try that. It's always nice (and stressful) to have Christmas at your own house, but the stress is worth it. The menu sounds yummy!
Here are some links that show how to make the trees:http://www.allfreecrafts.com/christm...mas-tree.shtmlhttp://www.bukisa.com/articles/6148_...pyramid-shaped
