Refugee Chocolatier Plans To Hire 50 Refugees by 2022 - Discrimination?

Just read this article and amazed the Canadian Labour board isn't throwing fines of discrimination in his face.

It nice that he wants to help other refugees, but isn't this actually Discrimination towards Canadians in need of work? And the article says he wanted to help/give back to the community that helped him. How is hiring Refugees and not those in the community giving back?

Maybe he wants to hire 50 refugees in the next 3 years in ADDITION to hiring Canadians? I hope the latter is what is the truth and Media left that part out. Otherwise, this is blatant Discrimination, and I believe is also against Labour Laws.

I get there will be some haters jumping on their soapbox and going off at the keyboards, but have at it. I don't care. With all this bullcrap about equality, how can you exclude a whole group and still get away with breaking labour laws? Everybody is so PC that nobody wants to break a few eggshells, so they just keep tippy-toeing around these types of issues. Makes me sick!

Happy Lonely Bachelor Day

Happy Lonely Bachelor Day!

Yup, it's that day that you get to sit on your ass feeling sorry for your pathetic self while scrolling through hundreds of posts by people celebrating the dreaded Valentine's Day. All those couples posting pics of their unwanted PDA's that you didn't ask to see. It's like they're just shoving and wiping it in your face. "I'm better than you! Mwaaa HA HA HA!!", is all I hear in my tiny mind.

So fellow Bachelors, never mind all those self-righteous pricks out there snuggling up with their mates, just sit back and enjoy being free and not tied down by some clingy person you call a partner/mate. Keep all that cash in your own pocket because you don't have to spend it all on some bull crap just to prove your love to them. Enjoy your freedom!

OH, just thought I'd mention that there's a special on Jergens Hand Lotion, and Scotts Tissues today at the market!

Time Lapse Snow Storm

We got pummeled with another snow storm today (February 13, 2019) and I got all 13 hours of it in time-lapse form to 5 1/2 minutes.

So happy and glad I have a good working snowblower to tackle these Canadian weather events.

This Is So Offensive!

This is in response to the latest Katy Perry Shoe Thing and all the other bullshit things people are calling blackface because something "looks' like it. If it's black and looks like it has eyes and red lips, "It's just gotta' be blackface!"

People are just trying too hard now to try and see anything in something they can make a big deal out of just to get a little bit of attention, or just to try and hurt somebody out of spite.

I long for the day when somebody finally has enough of all the bickering and just tells people to shut the puck up! If you don't like it, don't buy it. Don't look at it. Don't think about it. Move on you whiney little shits!

Puppy Dog Loves Treats

Katie just loves her treats. She is so smart.

She can't get enough of her Milk Bone treats. She will do anything for them.

I know she smiles a lot when I ask her to but keeps asking her to smile in the video. I just want her to give the best smile that's all. Her new thing is telling me how bad she wants a treat now.

Like Or Dislike Self-Checkout?

So I just read that retailers are starting to ditch their self-checkouts due to a few unhappy self-righteous customers.

Look, I get the whole keep the human employed movement, but sometimes other humans who are in a hurry and only have one item to purchase still would like the convenience of using a quick and easy self-checkout, instead of having to stand in line behind an 8 family members worth of groceries in the shopping cart of the customer in front of them.

I don't think they should be abandoning them. Instead, they should restrict them for use for customers who have 1 - 5 items to purchase. They should also adopt the Cueing lineup. (Oromocto Atlantic Superstore, I'm looking at you.) A queuing line would speed things up a great deal. All customers would wait in one line and wait for the next available checkout.

And I'm probably going to get flack for this but I don't care, It's just my opinion and you're entitled to it. For the people who don't get tech, stay away from the self-checkouts. OR, have a friend who knows how to use them show you. Don't attempt to use it on your own for the first time if you don't get the concept of technology. You will just be the problem again.

I'm still for employing people for helping us spend our money on overpriced groceries. If people aren't employed, they aren't contributing to the communities with their tax deductions from their paychecks. They wouldn't be paying into Pensions, and employment insurance. Things that can only exist with the working people.

So that's just my two cents worth.
What do you think? Are you a self-checkout user, or do you think they should be met with a sledgehammer? And why?

Is There Such Thing As Easy Money?

Yes. Yes, there is!

In the past, no bank would give me the light of the day when I went to them looking for financial help. Not even a used car dealership would look at me. My credit was terrible, and I knew that. But I tried anyway, only to get laughed at.

I really needed some wheels because I was tired of forking out hundreds of dollars on taxi cabs every week. I was desperate.

I kept seeing these ads from Easy Financial and I knew their interest rates were high. Crazy high actually. But I needed a few thousand dollars just to get a cheap used car to get me on the road and not worry about having to fork out hundreds of dollars in taxis to get from work and back, or to and from grocery shopping.

So I gave Easy Financial a shot, and they approved me for a loan that was actually more than I expected. I'll pretty much have to pay back double by the time the loan is paid off, but at least I got the cash to get a car. Yeah, I was desperate. I knew what I was getting into.

I just wanted to share that with you all. And if you too are desperate, and in need of some money to buy whatever it is that you need, but can't get any help from any banks, then I would recommend going to Easy Financial and giving them a try. Don't go for a huge amount of money, because like I said, they are high on interest and you'll pay back double what you get.

So go ahead, APPLY HERE, and see what they have to offer you.

Happy Chinese New Year (Lunar New Year)

It's the year of the Pig.
Pigs have a beautiful personality and are blessed with good fortune in life.

The Pig is the 12th of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. The Pig was late because he overslept (Probably hung over lol). Another story says that a wolf destroyed his house (Three Little pigs connection maybe?). He had to rebuild his home before he could set off. When he arrived, he was the last one and could only take 12th place.

The Pig is also associated with the Earthly Branch, and the hours 9–11 in the night. In terms of yin and yang, the Pig is yin. In Chinese culture, pigs are the symbol of wealth.

Their chubby little faces and big ears are signs of fortune or wealth as well.
Chinese New Year is the Chinese festival that celebrates the beginning of a new year on the traditional Chinese calendar. The festival is usually referred to as the Spring Festival in mainland China, and is one of several Lunar New Years in Asia.
If you would like to learn more about this Lunar New Year, head on over to the Chinese New Year Web Site

If wealth or fortune are this years thing. Boy oh boy, it couldn't have come at a better time because I could really really use some fortune in my life at this time!! Hopefully I win tomorrow night's big Jackpot. I'd say it about my time to catch a break after all the hell I've been through lately.

Happy Lunar New Year!

Google Plus Shutting Down

Google Plus shutting down for consumers. In December 2018 Google announced that they would be shuttering their Google+ social networking site for good due “to low usage and challenges involved in maintaining a successful product that meets consumers’ expectations.” I'm betting it is really because the big deal about the privacy bug, but that's a whole another blog post in itself.
On April 2nd, your Google+ account and any Google+ pages you created will be shut down and we will begin deleting content from consumer Google+ accounts. Photos and videos from Google+ in your Album Archive and your Google+ pages will also be deleted. You can download and save your content, just make sure to do so before April. Note that photos and videos backed up in Google Photos will not be deleted.  
The process of deleting content from consumer Google+ accounts, Google+ Pages, and Album Archive will take a few months, and content may remain through this time. For example, users may still see parts of their Google+ account via activity log and some consumer Google+ content may remain visible to G Suite users until consumer Google+ is deleted.
 I'll admit that my usage of the service declined over the years, but that was because of the lack of friends that I knew wouldn't jump on board with me. Sure I could have made new online friends through G+, but that's not what I was aiming for. I wanted to move away from the Privacy Violating, Memory hog and bandwidth sucking site wee know as Facebook. But it didn't happen. So I mainly resorted to using it to link whore my stuff to draw traffic to my sites.

But that said, I've noticed the wording in their statements. The word, "Consumer." They use that word as if there is another type of user that they will keep the site operational for. After all, you can't have a Consumer without a Market right? So are they going to keep G+ open for companies? Just something for you to think about... ;)

I wish the site took off though. I really like the fact that the site loads up clean and smooth. Unlike Facebook that sucks bandwidth like crazy loading up background apps and advertising cookies and java code to scrape through all your private matters to sell to advertisers. Facebook is such a resource hog. Just look at the progress bar at the bottom of your browser when you load up Facebook. You'll see all the different things the site is opening up and running on your end. It's crazy!

Well, I guess this is it Google Plus. It's been a pleasure. If for only a short time.
So long.....
