I’m headed to St. John’s, Newfoundland today for a business trip. My employer is a system integrator of an RFID proposal and I’m the Technical Architect; there’s a company in Newfoundland who specializes in RFID solutions, whom we may partner with.
Phillip’s picking me up at the airport. His big plans for me:
I kissed a cod long ago (when there were cod).
Farm-share program launching in Moncton:
A new farm-share program in Moncton will allow area residents to get fresh local produce while supporting farmers.
Under the program, customers pay in advance for a share of the harvest from her Amarosia Organic Garden. In exchange, they get weekly deliveries of fresh produce for 22 weeks from June to October.
We joined the program today, although we have a vegetable garden; however, we do eat a lot of vegetables, and we’re keen on supporting local producers rather than those from California, Chile, etc. I’ll post about the baskets of food we get; its quality and quantity.
It’s Roll Up The Rim To Win time again at Tim Hortons.
Their sales sky-rocket during this promotion, where customers have to roll up the rim of their beverage cup to reveal if they won anything, which includes a car, donuts, muffins, coffees, and for the first time: a boat!
I don’t drink as much of their coffee as I used to; I won’t be keeping track of my wins and losses.
My wife works at Tim Hortons now, so officially, I’m not allowed to play. If I win a boat I’ll have to trust a friend to claim the prize for me.
Moncton, New Brunswick finally put up some webcams: one in front of city hall, the other at the pond in Centennial Park.
Nice, picturesque winter scenes there now.
This product makes it easy to check for prize statements hidden under the rims of paper coffee cups in various contests… it slices the cup rim twice when pushed down, and an internal lip unrolls the paper edge when it’s pulled up.
$2.50 at Lee Valley Tools for something you may use for two months of the year, if you drink Tim Hortons‘ coffee, which I rarely do now; however, it may save some frustration when trying to bend over the edge of those cups. I wonder if it will sell.
