Don't stash your winter clothes and boots away yet. We are getting another blast of winter ... and yet it will be in the 60s by the weekend! It's another round of inclement weather for the entire country ... rainstorms, thunderstorms, tornadoes, snowstorms, thundersnow ... and an abundance of wind!!! Sometimes these spring snowstorms are worse. This year spring seems to be coming in, and going out, like a LION! It will be interesting to see how all the variety of Mother Nature affects farmers (sub soil moisture, drought, and flooding).
The other day I ordered a pizza on line, to be delivered to my job. I don't eat out (or in, delivery) much at all. It's a treat for myself when I do. Because it was on sale, is why I treated myself that day. Granted, what I'm about to share does not amount to a lot of money, but rather it's the principle of the whole situation.
I ordered on line, stating I would pay cash, when the pizza was delivered. However, when I went to pay the delivery guy I realized I did not have enough cash on me. They would not take a check so my only option was to use my debit card. He had to run it over the telephone, with the store. He had no way to give me a receipt, however, I did have the cash receipt showing what the amount SHOULD HAVE BEEN.
I've been having trouble with my bank reconciliation and that's how I found out the pizza shop charged me nearly $8.00 over the amount that was on my receipt. It was their mistake. They charged me full price, not the sale price. And, come to find out, it was that purchase that was causing me trouble with my bank reconciliation.
I called the pizza shop this morning. The manager is OFF TODAY ... of course. So the fella I was speaking with promised to contact him and get back with me. They cannot give me cash back, nor can they credit the money back to my debit card because it's "another business day". I have been promised some kind of a "coupon" card, for MORE PIZZA. MAYBE I DON'T WANT MORE PIZZA!!!!
Needless to say, I am an unhappy camper. I don't want a "free lunch" ... I want my money refunded. I would love to blast their name all over the place but will show them the respect of not doing that. I'm just saying, you really need to watch the amounts that are charged, when using a credit card.
Well, guess what? The pizza driver came in this afternoon and gave me a FULL REFUND, not just what they owed me. I guess his conscience and the fact that there's an unhappy customer made the manager come to his senses. I even called them back to let them know that they refunded me too much. It was a gesture of good will for this unhappy customer!
This is the same comments as on my homepage. I put it as a post here also, in case anyone wants to comment.
My condolences to the families and loved ones of those lost in the blasts yesterday at the Boston Marathon. My heart goes out to anyone who is and will be suffering trauma from this tragic event. Peace be with all of you. Kudos and hats off to all those who sprang into action to help the victims. Thank you.
The worst part of it all, is such horrible physical harm caused to friends and family members gathering at or near the finish line, celebrating the successes of their loved ones. So sad; such a cold world we've become. I pray someone comes forward with clues or information to help them find the perpetrators of this tragedy.
We had some local people who ran this marathon and, from what I've heard so far, people from this area are safe.
"Coffee: Induces wit. Good only if it comes through La Havre. After a big dinner party it is taken standing up. Take it without sugar -- very swank: gives the impression you have lived in the East." ~Gustave Flaubert (1821-1880)http://www.jp.lehavretourisme.com/la-presse-au-havre/documents/Le_Havre_Gastronomy_UK.pdf
"Deja Brew: The feeling that you've had this coffee before." ~Unknown
"No coffee can be good in the mouth that does not first send a sweet offering of odor to the nostrils." ~Henry Ward Beecher
"Only one thing is certain about coffee. Wherever it is grown, sold, brewed, and consumed, there will be lively controversy, strong opinions, and good conversation."
"A certain Liquor which they call Coffee...which will soon intoxicate the brain."
~G. W. Parry (1601)
"Moderately drunk, coffee removes vapours from the brain, occasioned by fumes of wine, or other strong liquors; eases pains in the head, prevents sour belchings, and provokes appetite." ~England's Happiness Improved (1699)

www.FWD.us ... Here is the link to another Zuckerberg shakeup in the Facebook world!
Because I have such a bitter taste in my mouth, from being a past member of the Facebook world, I shouldn't even bother giving him or FB any of my time. The reason I am is because this time, many comments indicate that people are slowly "getting it". Comments like, "I've quit FB." "I'm leaving FB." "I'm outta here!" etc., etc., etc. I have read more criticisms about the announcement of Zuckerberg's latest venture (I say 'venture' instead of 'adventure' because it seems to be all about money, greed, and power)!
Besides Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Facebook, other co-founders of this "movement" (that's their own words on the website) are Joe Green, Founder and President of FWD.us; John Doerr, General Partner at Kleiner, Perkins, Caufield & Byers (Silicon Valley); Reid Hoffman, Executive Chairman of LinkedIn; Ruchi Sanghvi, VP of Operations of Dropbox; Chamath Palihapitiya, Managing Partner of The Social+Capital Partnership; Jim Breyer, Partner at Accel; Ron Conway, Special Adviser to SV Angel; Aditya Agarwal, VP of Engineering at Dropbox; Drew Houston, Founder and CEO of Dropbox; and Matt Cohler, General Partner at Benchmark.
Want to know a bit about these people and the organizations they are affiliated with? Well, here are some web links I found about either these people, or the websites for which they are affiliated.
I see three members from Dropbox. Dropbox has an interesting history and ended up bed partners with Facebook. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dropbox_(service)
I went to https://www.dropbox.com/ ... you can't do anything until you either download its program or "sign up", so I could see little about this website. I'm not joining or downloading, without more information and also because of its ties to Facebook!

LinkedIn is another site that you have to become a member. I am a member there, but I may be changing my mind about that now. It seems to be a good networking site for connecting with friends in business, and to look for employment.
