Does anyone like this woman? I think Trent may be right. I occasionally read her columns on Yahoo Finance and come away thinking, "well that's not bad." But my expectations are rock bottom.

But I'm with you, her personality, her voice, it's just unbearable. How would you like to be on a conference call with Suze Orman and Jim Cramer together?

I had to laugh at your Amica recommendation. A family member of mine worked in the insurance business for over 40 years. He did not work for Amica - yet always told everyone in the family to use them. Amica is my insurance company based on his recommendation and most of the folks in my family also use Amica.

Over the years I have second-guessed the recommendation purely based on price (sometimes an employeer would offer a discount, so it would be cheaper to switch). However, I have always stuck with Amica and having gone through a couple of car insurance claims with them I can say they are very, very good and always quick with a payout check.

If something ever happened to my house I feel better knowing Amica will handle the claim. I guess my slightly higher bill is paying for good customer service - but believe me when you have to deal with an insurance problem you really need that good customer service.


I think that Suze Orman's personality sometimes gets in the way of her advice, which is often quite good. She markets herself a little bit too much, I think. It's similar to how I feel about Jim Cramer - good advice buried under overbearing personality.
