You most likely won't like my opinion, but I am going to give it to you anyway.  DONT get health insurance.  Start a special health savings plan and stick money in it monthly in case of an accident or catastrophy. 
I think insurance companies are a bunch of crap.  They take your money but they can find reasons not to pay if they want to. 
I had Humanna insurance (in CO)back in 2002 and it was horrible.  After suffering an accident in my home and being transported to the hospital in an ambulance, my insurance refused to pay for the amount beyond the deductable.  I called them.  They said "did this accident happen at work?" 
"NO" I told them "I am not filing for workmans comp, I am filing under my health insurance."  They denied the bills 3 or 4 times when I re-submitted and eventually the hospital, doctors and ambulance turned me in to collects, which I had to pay or have bad credit, with extra fees attached.

I recently acquired an old Ashford spinning wheel and learned to spin my own yarn.  I am currently working with alpaca, but started with wool. 

It is interesting to find after I started doing this, how many people are using spinning wheels and into the fiber arts craft. 

A website I found for spinning is called for information, materials, ect.

They are made of some sort of special microfiber, and I believe they are made in the USA so they are a little spendy, but long term they save you money as you don't have to purchase cleaning solvents.

They also have a special kit for kids.  I think this is neat because it teaches kids to clean up after themselves, they can help around the house and there is no toxicity you have to worry about.
