The Distractions vs The Policies

Posted by Moaning Mary on February 23, 2017 in Business, Politics, World Affairs |
meet the press Trump style

Journalism, to me, is about news, not gossip or foibles. It is about detailing issues that matter in one’s life, not about what makes one shake their head or giggle. While President Trump enjoys stirring the pot in 140 characters or less, isn’t it time for the media to get on with its real job, which is to inform the public about policies and things that impact one’s life?

Buying Auto Parts Online

shopping online

It is bad enough shopping in person, inconvenient and all, but you know, it can be better than when you buy something online, and have a headache. Least if you buy it from a local outlet, you can bitch to a manager and get your money back. Forget it if you buy from an ebay retailer, like BuyAutoParts.

Spend or Save | What really counts

Posted by Moaning Mary on February 24, 2016 in Business, Federal |
Federal budget coming

It sounds scary, to have to borrow over Eighteen Billion dollars, but then, keeping things in perspective, having higher unemployment, back logged health care, lack of checks and balances on Police, on Industry is a bit more scarier. We need to have our services restored, before we can start to save again.

The Netflix Crackdown on Cross Border Viewing

crackdown on illegal viewing

I do enjoy my Netflix, versus regular cable television and no, not just because it is commercial free, but mainly because it lets me watch what I want, when I can. Still, the selection isn’t the greatest and so we also have Shomi, but the issue is, why can’t we have the full catalogue of shows?

Update | Subway Sooke

Posted by Moaning Mary on February 5, 2016 in Being a Sookite, Business |
Subway in Sooke experience

Sooke Subway owner actually does care about his customers. I know, hard to believe, but he did respond to our complaint, and made good on it too. Now that is how you run a real business, caring about your customers.

Sooke Subway Experience

Posted by Moaning Mary on January 16, 2016 in Being a Sookite, Business |

Honestly, where is the quality today in fast foods? Should we even expect to get what we order, or is that also a thing of the past? Having a sub from Sooke Subway is supposed to be about eating a bit healthier than a burger, but still, is that any reason to ignore a customer’s request for garnishes and toppings?

The Loonie Plummets so maybe it is time to Buy Canadian

Posted by Moaning Mary on January 13, 2016 in Business, The Daily Grind |
corporate money grab

Maybe we should start to think about just who is losing money with the lower Loonie? Yes, we end up paying more, but is it really because the Loonie is low, or could it be because we have sold all our Canadian Businesses to foreign interests? We export food, fruit, veggies, so uh, how come we pay more than those who buy our exports?

Hewlitt Packard | Nothing but a royal Rip Off and Scam

Posted by Moaning Mary on January 6, 2016 in Business |
Perpetrating Fraud on the Consumer

When corporations change the meaning of common words, it means they are just finding another way to screw the consumer, such as with Hewlitt Packard and their Extended Warranty deals to their customers.

Mushroom Mozza Burger at Sooke A&W

Posted by Moaning Mary on December 8, 2015 in Business |

Back in my day, fast food was cheap and not exactly gourmet food, but it was tasty. Today fast food is expensive, and total crapola. It has no flavour, often is overcooked or undercooked, and we simply accept it.
