A Slight Departure From Our Regular Content…

I try to keep most of the content a least loosely related to Tiny Houses and Tiny Living, but I found this to be very note worthy and thought I would share. cignalogo001So today I came across these two videos about a Former CINGA Insurance Executive coming out and talking about some of the industry secrets and his comments on the movie Sicko by Michael Moore.

If you haven’t seen the movie, Michael Moore has posted the video to watch for free here.

Please share your comments and thoughts on the matter in the comments section!
