04/10/2015 00:00:00 Enchanted April Southeast

"To those who appreciate wisteria and sunshine... and who have ever hoped, on occasion, that a little Enchantment might step in..." Set in 1922 London, Enchanted April is a charming comedy about four women who find their lives at a cross-roads. Leaving behind their inattentive husbands and humdrum lives, they embark on a spur-of-the-moment, month long escape to a rented castle in Genoa, and dare to let a little Enchantment step in. What they get is much more than they expected, and the result is a beautiful experience that the LA Times calls a "rarity, a play where every single element falls perfectly into place - a show that leaves you positively glowing."

These vivid, boldly coloured works demonstrate Hodgkin's one-of-a-kind style and confirm his status as one of Britain's best painters.

How to handle a Refund Scam

If you paid for products/services, and you later get a call about a refund, don’t give out any personal information, like your credit card or bank account number. The call is almost certainly another trick to take your money. The refund scam works like this: Several months after the purchase, someone might call to ask if you were happy with the service. When you say you weren’t, the scammer offers a refund. Or the caller may say that the company is going out of business and providing refunds for “warranties” and other services. In either case, the scammers eventually ask for a bank or credit card account number. Or they ask you to create a Western Union account. They might even ask for remote access to your computer to help you fill out the necessary forms. But instead of putting money in your account, the scammers withdraw money from your account.

Insurance from some major car-sharing companies

Zipcar provides liability coverage plus personal injury protection in states that require this coverage. Members face a damage fee of up to $1,000 per incident, unless they buy a waiver. Drivers under age 21 get only the state-minimum liability coverage. Car2Go provides liability, uninsured motorist, and collision and comprehensive insurance (with a $1,000 deductible), plus personal injury protection in some states. Enterprise CarShare’s insurance coverage varies by state, but generally includes state-minimum liability insurance, with the option to pay for more coverage, and a $500 member responsibility for damage, with the option to pay a damage-waiver fee.
