This is what Canada IS!

compassion over hate

More refugees try to cross the cold snow drifts to avoid the anti-immigrant policies of the United States, it is good to know that we treat them as people. When our RCMP can stand Guard and help those in need, it gives one a sense of pride. More than that, IT DEFINES OUR COUNTRY vs THE UNITED STATES OF TODAY.

Who, What, Where, When, Why and How

Posted by Moaning Mary on February 13, 2017 in The Daily Grind |

Whatever happen to real news reporting? Today if you can’t say in 140 characters it rarely gets noticed. Is this really informing us so we can make rational decisions about our elected officials?

The End Game

keep tryiung or not

Getting old is not what I envisioned it to be. Far from it actually but I wonder, if once you reach an age, it becomes pointless to try, or is the old saying of it never being too late, does apply? Guess it is something I will need to find out, or at least give it a try. Waiting for that final breath isn’t working.

Spring At Last or is it Summer?

soaking up some sun

Gotta feel sorry for the folks over in Newfoundland Labrador. Here I am sitting out in the sun, in shirt sleeves while they are shoveling snow. Doesn’t seem fair, but heck, it is life and well, come on no such thing as Climate Change, right Stephen Harper?

Update | Subway Sooke

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?

Navigating the Abyss of Buying Anti Virus Software

Posted by Moaning Mary on November 27, 2015 in Business, The Daily Grind |

Shopping for a new anti virus program, that will protect me, is like taking a trip into the jungle, armed with a water pistol, that is empty. Review sites that are shills for one or more software makers, reports that are slanted, twisted, makes buying anything a total shot in the dark.

corner discount store in Sooke

Who doesn’t enjoy a bargain? I know I do, and frankly with todays prices, thankfully there ar some decent discount Dollar stores around, like This ‘n That in Sooke. Cheapest price for cigarettes and other stuff, plus they even rent DVDs.
