Super Service in London Ontario.

Filed under: Uncategorized — teddytowncrier @ 6:22 pm

I’m always happy to give a fellow traveler a leg up.

So many others have greased life rails for me so an opportunity to help someone along is always a privilege.

Have been a smoker since Moses was in short pants and one of my life’s joys is a ciggy “after” and with my morning coffee & newspaper while awakening on the deck.

Several smoking cessation techniques have been utilized with varying degrees of temporary success including:

Hypnotism. … (Twice successful).

Countdown I. … I did the math before retiring and transferred the schedule to paper ready for next day. …

Countdown II. … Wrote a computer program and pushed a button to print out the day’s schedule.

Countdown III. … Purchased a $5.00 app which kept track each day and beeped when I’m permitted a smoke.

Stretching spacing a few minutes each day wasn’t too big a burden but when the spacing started getting around 1 plus hours, this strategy demanded serious commitment.

Plan B. Became “Vaping” which involves using a mini, cigar shaped, boiler and turning flavoured liquid into steam and for me; Does provide some oral satisfaction derived from the steam sensation and the habitual act of frequently, putting something into my mouth.

I have a couple of suppliers for my vaping needs. … One in Dixie Value Mall Flea Market basement.

The other is https://itsnotsmoke.ca/ 1700 Dundas St London, ON (N. side of Dundas, just W. of 3rd St).

Visiting Itsnotsmoke was always an experience. … In the early days; we were greeted by a grandma who really knew her stuff and always turned a $10 deal into a unique spectacular.

More recently; I’ve noticed that Lars seems to have re-read his marketing 101 books and the streamlining is noticeable and yet; still welcoming.

This time it was Jeff at my service. … All i needed was a replacement mouthpiece which he had installed before I turned around AAAAAAAAAAAAND; … Jeff had topped me up and polished my vaper. …. For free, yet.

Oh Ya!. … Granny soon arrived and started castigating me for neglecting her. … (Hell! Darlin’ I’m 2.5 hrs away. … I don’t love ya’ that much).

Bottom line here is; When you or loved ones are wishing something could be done about their smoking. … Itsnotsmoke comes highly recommended.

A comment is required. … (or else)

He knew how to make lemonade and Princess Di came calling.

Forget taking marketing 101 and instead; Google for “Honest Ed” + “Canada” and then read everything you can about him.

Ed’s store had the cleanest sidewalk on the block because in the old days; His wife used cleaning the sidewalk as an excuse for keeping an eye out for creditors….. He expanded his store to encompass the whole block and turned the neighbouring streets into artisan galleries. … (AKA Mirvish Village).

Deep discount all the way ….. No high traffic locations with ample parking for Ed ….. He opened his restaurant in the freight yards ….. Limited menu … Just beef + 2 veg served on all 3 floors of the warehouse and you had to line up to get in. Single selection for desert … Pie & ice cream.

He did the same with 2 more 3 floor warehouses beside the tracks (One chicken only; The other fish only).

Even though he’s passed on ….. They still give away thousands of turkeys at Christmas …. That’s CRM Canadian style.

Enough from me ….. Do your own Google and you’re on the way to your very own world’s best, Phd in marketing.


God Bless you Ed. … You were a blessing for Canada an inspiration to all Canadians.


First thing tomorrow …. I really must get someone to re-install the “T” on the sign.



Bestest.

Prevent Chat from stealing your life.

Filed under: Uncategorized — teddytowncrier @ 2:41 pm


Keeping my door fully open with a Contact Portal allows my friends, neighbours, customers, creditors, ex wives, current lovers, politicians & scam artist to easily reach out and contact me.

From this portal; visitors can use eMail, Telephone, Chat, voice or video chat on the many platforms available to us and if I am asleep can easily leave me a note and I’ll give them my full attention as soon as am able,

Although this Contact Portal is simple, speedy and effective. … There’s an unavoidable time-gobbler built in.

When text chatting; I usually wait when I notice someone with whom I’m chatting is writing but the wait often seems an eternity and seems to gobble up my time waiting for them to finish.

I try to avoid inflicting the same pain as they watch and wait while I’m typing my reply.  … I use a simple strategy of composing outside our chat screen.

When my reply is likely to be a couple of sentences; I’ll frequently compose it in Notepad or similar and paste in the chat when finished.

This way I’m avoiding making the recipient watch and wait until I’ve finished my two finger exercise of writing my piece.

When I hit the “Send” Button”; “The Bell” alerts the recipient that there’s a nugget of life changing importance awaiting them.

Composing off line cuts out the time gobbling, watching and waiting for me to finish. … (and vice-versa).

Bailed out by The Bay’s ladies on Valentine’s Day.

The darlings at The Bay bailed me out on Valentine’s day.

It’s tough to buy for your Schmoozie when she has everything but the darlings in The Bay store in Masonville Place, London came to my rescue.

We met during Christmas.    I’d picked up the name of Schmoozie’s favourite perfume so deciding on a Christmas gift was easy.

It was Natalia on the Lancôme counter that switched counters, found what I needed & packaged this tiny bottle of gold, to create tons of excitement & make me a hero.

She was an amiable gal who took interest in my needs and so when Valentine’s day rolled around; The only logical thing to do was seek out Natalia and mention that I was stuck but thinking of lingerie this time.

Although a skin care consultant; … She instantly closed her cash register, whisked me off to the lingerie department and quickly selected a few items that would fill the bill and delight Schmoozie.      Natalia had just been appointed my personal shopper.

It didn’t stop there. … Natalia scooped me a premium box, packaged my purchases in this OOHH! packaging which I know will create tons of anticipation in Schmoozie and make me a star.

So if you’re in London, Ontario and thinking of perfume or skin care; … Drop in to see Natalia on the Lancôme counter at The Bay in Masonville Place. … You’ll be well taken care of and maybe become a star, too.

A ray of sunshine at the London Locksmith.

A greeting like this makes you want to linger in this London locksmith store.

It was a snowy, blustery day in London, Ontario and I needed an “instant open” lock to avoid fumbling for keys on the doorstep and thought that a radio controlled lock would fill the bill.

I knew that Central Locksmiths in London, Ontario would fix me up.

The moment I entered it felt that someone had thrown open the shutters and a sunny spring morning was flooding in.

Marilyn bounded from her chair and promptly introduced herself and was soon, knowledgeably seeking a solution for me.

Regrettably she couldn’t recommend a consumer product due to the extreme cold that Canadians have to put up with and so .. We chatted for a few minutes about shoes & ships & sealing wax and cabbages & kings.

Marilyn was just putting on a pot of coffee and offered me one and in between creating propositions for re-keying an entire office building and cutting an extra key for a dear old lady; We addressed the world’s problems over a cuppa.

There’s no life enhancing reason for this post except; … I wanted to introduce you to a lady who knows her stuff and treats everyone who enters her door, as a friend. …. Remember to let her know that her coffee is now famous and she’ll probably offer you one.


Here’s the movie of Marilyn & Henry’s Las Vegas Wedding. ….

Enjoy! …. and remember to send them your very best wishes for their new journey, in the comments below.

Prepaid Credit Cards. … The Good, Bad and Ugly.

Filed under: Uncategorized — teddytowncrier @ 3:34 pm
Tags: , ,



Prepaid Credit Cards. …. A few things to watch out for.

Prepaid Credit Cards are a handy payment device for special uses and I use them frequently for making purchases when I wish to avoid the possibility of some-one “double dipping” and draining my account.

Since there is no link between my banking accounts and this prepaid card;   There’s little chance bandits can drain my account.

Additionally; I can make purchases which I would prefer not to show up on my records. … (Credit Card records can be subpoenaed ).

There are small fees for using these cards and “maintenance fees” can kick in after a few months but it’s a Rip Off that I’ll tolerate for their convenience.

These cards are available in amounts of $25 to $500 and are available at most of the chain Drug Stores.   Just keep your purchase and transaction records in case you do need to dispute an item.

Even though there is a myriad of benefits from using prepaid cards; … There are some little known dangers and Ellen Roseman does a great job of alerting us to these dangers.

Here’s her enlightening article:    “Thieves can use gift cards before you do”

Enjoy.

Watch out for this drugstore scam!

Filed under: Uncategorized — teddytowncrier @ 12:43 pm

Watch out for this drugstore scam.

Doctor scribbled a prescription for an Over the Counter product (Cost $22.00) and the dispensary assistant checked and discovered that it was cheaper at the dispensary. …. Cheaper until they added their dispensing fee. …. Now $11.61 product cost plus $10.99 dispensing fee.

Remember; … The dispensary may be a separate business from the main drugstore and the whole fee goes to them whereas they get zippo if I had bought of the shelf.

Didn’t occur to me at the time but the fee may be negotiable and if there were a few other customers around; I could probably negotiate it away.

I got caught! … Watch out for this attack on your wallet and don’t let it happen to you.
