The Ultimate Guide To Making Vegetables More Appealing : The GGC 2018 #3 June 18-24

A FEW STEPS IS ALL IT TAKES TO MAKE VEGETABLES GO FROM BORING TO FABULOUS   One of the main reasons vegetables get blind-sided especially by children is not only because of taste but also the way vegetables are served. So, why not add colour, flavours and include new ways to plate and serve vegetables to your family. By taking these extra steps you not only combat food waste and possible increased grocery expenses but you allow vegetables to be enjoyed without worry that it will taste horrible from the get-go. When our son was a baby he couldn’t get enough fruits and vegetables and just loved them at every meal, even breakfast. He would eat half an avocado mushed up without problem, sliced cucumbers, tomatoes and so on. These days we’re lucky to get cucumber slices into his belly because we think he’s lost his appeal for vegetables. Perhaps we need to perk them up a bit, so that’s what we’ve done. Mrs. CBB and I were talking about vegetables and his diet in general and were working on ways to get him rip-roaring about healthy eating and why vegetables are important. Although he’s knocking on four years old […]

14 Flowers and Herbs That Repel Mosquitoes : The Saturday Weekend Review #256

MOSQUITOES WILL CRASH YOUR PARTY AND FOLLOW YOU AROUND UNLESS YOU TAKE STEPS TO PROTECT YOURSELF   I love gardening but what I don’t love are mosquitoes so I’ve decided to fight back to try to keep our property and bodies free from the pests that can cause an itch and potentially serious disease in humans. One of our biggest concerns when it comes to mosquitoes is the bite and not so much for the itch that follows but because of illnesses and diseases linked to mosquitoes such as West Nile Virus and Encephalitis. Although not all mosquitoes carry a disease it’s still important to protect yourself and through research I’ve found plenty of simple ways you can do that. There is a West Nile Virus and other mosquito-borne diseases national surveillance report that you can follow with the Canadian government if you’re interested in being in the loop of these pests. What is West Nile Virus? A bite from an infected mosquito can cause infection with West Nile virus. Infected mosquitoes can spread the virus to humans and other animals.

Valid Dissatisfied Customer Concerns At Canadian Grocery Stores : GGC 2018 #5 May 28-June 3

Speak up, Move on or Take it! The choice is yours when it comes to being a dissatisfied customer.   Ultimately the responsibility of a well-run grocery store starts at the top of the chain and trickles down but if policies and procedures aren’t met the customers will let them know. The problem is, not all customers voice their opinions to the right people or at all. Grocery store employees deal with a variety of difficult customers but then dealing with angry customers over important issues that must be dealt with right away. I find there is a difference between difficult and angry because being difficult means you want something to happen and angry is because something has happened and you want it fixed.   The Dissatisfied Customer   In any case customers often have valid concerns about the places they grocery shop at and I wanted to know from my readers what bothered them the most about our Canadian Grocery Stores. This isn’t a post to bash any particular grocery store rather it is a way to hear what the customers have to say. Most often customers won’t say a darn thing but they sure as hell think it. […]

The Ultimate Guide To Prevent Garage Sale Theft : The Saturday Weekend Review #255

BE AWARE WHAT IS HAPPENING AT YOUR GARAGE SALE BECAUSE THEFT IS A BIG ISSUE BUT NOT WIDELY DISCUSSED.   Spring and summer is the perfect time to de-clutter the house but before you host your garage sale this weekend keep garage sale theft and scams on your mind. There comes a time when even blogging about garage sale theft is a hot topic because it happens and it occurs more than you think especially to unsuspecting sellers. The problem is homeowners don’t know about it, aren’t aware or don’t care to discuss it because they are embarrassed. How would you feel if something you worked hard for was swiped when you turned your back or if someone went a step further and had a master plan with a few friends or family members? It really boggles my mind how far someone will go to get stuff for free at the risk of getting arrested and charged with theft at a garage sale. How bad do they really need it? Typically garage sale prices are already super low so why does someone steal? Because they can. I’m the type of person who would say if someone really wants something and […]
