EXPOSED! Kraft Changes Look & Reduces Quantity


I was surprised to see a new look for Kraft dressings. 

The bottle has a new look as does the labeling.
 
Something else has changed. Although the price is the same the amount of product has shrunk. Old bottle 475 ml new bottle 425 ml.
 
Not cool Kraft!

I'm a Proud Canadian!

I am proud to live in Canada. Yes things are rough, but take a look at the world. Every country is struggling with the exact same issues.

Covid really hit the planet in the balls and the after pain continues to make life hard. It's going to take a while to set things right & I'm thankful Canada is at least trying to do stuff and have little patience for those who cry foul without having a plan to replace it.

For the most part, Canada is still a country made up of kind, caring people. We're a "love thy neighbour" kinda place.

Of course there's always tragic exceptions who are far from kind or neighbourly. But for every one of these horrible people we hear of in the news & social media, there's countless kind acts happening across our grand country.

People doing nice things for their family, their friends, their community, even a total stranger. They don't do it to get in the headlines or get hits on their website. They do it because it is the decent thing to do. Hell many of these kind souls don't want any fuss or recognition at all. Instead they anonymously keep the joy of their kind act between them and those they help.

Canada still has more people who are kind & caring and embrace our diversity, than those who do not. I truly believe this and it is one of the many reasons I am proud to be a Canadian.


HAPPY CANADA DAY EVERYONE!!

Scribbles REVIEW | DCT's Original Production 'Next' Has All the Feels


PHOTOS COUTESY: KIM PAPPLE, DCT WEBSITE, DCT 'NEXT' PROGRAMME, SCRIBBLES 


My Word!


It's always enjoyable for me to take something you did and turn it into a post for Scribbles.co or my Facebook page. But it's extra special to see my words featured in OTHER places.
Take this one for example...As I have enthusiastically and repeatedly mentioned, on June 15 my sister Kim and I went to Dunnville to watch the DCT production 'Next'. I wrote a review with lots of pix for Scribbles.co.
DCT pal Claire asked me if I would like to say a few words about the play that might be used in a review of 'Next' in the newspaper The Haldimand Press.
I was happy to oblige and delighted to see my comments featured in the paper's review.
I can't include a link to the review because Facebook blocks Canadian's from sharing news stories. If you Google Haldimand Press and go to their website, you can find the full story.
But if you just want to hear what I wrote... here it is:
From The Haldimand Press, Valerie Posthumus' review of 'Next' featured in the paper's June 20th edition.
"On June 14, 2024 the Dunnville Community Theatre opened their hilariously funny and moving production of their “home grown play” entitled ‘Next’.
... Ken Leavoy attended the production and had this to say after the show: “My, my, my Delilah, a delicious meal, a touching storyline with nods to local hotspots, and a stellar cast. DCT’s homegrown production ‘Next’ checks all the boxes. A must see for theatre fans.”
WOO HOO... I'm famous now!! LOL!!
