Get paid $47/hour for tasting candy! (yes...for real)   Candy Funhouse, based in Mississauga, Ontario, is looking for full-time and part-time "candyologists" to serve as taste testers for the company's confections.   BTW you won't have to go to Canada because the positions are remote. And, they are paying $47 an hour to sample and review some of the company's 3,000 candy and chocolate treats.   "Candidates should have enthusiasm and eagerness to try confectionary products," t...

How long would you wait in a Doctor's waiting room before leaving? Keep in mind that the apppointment is not an emergency, just a standard follow up...   I found out mine is 70 minutes. Watching people sign in after me, get seen before me and leave while I was waiting is infuriating.   After 1 hour and 10 minutes,  I told the receptionist I was leaving and I'll call to make another appointment. Wouldn't you know that they called me 5 minutes later to see if I was still in the...

A fortune cookie provided by my local Chinese take out with my dinner the other night read:     "If you don't enjoy what you have, how could you be happier with more?"   That is so true. I was enjoying reflecting on this statement when I turned it over and it said "Please disregard all previous fortunes."...

The tradition continues... and your intrepid prognosticator went 3 out of 4 for 2019!   In total I'm 21 out of 40 since 2007. Not bad eh?...I'm over .500 and could get milllions for that in baseball :)   Okay...so this is a tough year to predict but I'll give it my best shot.   1. The Yankees will win the World Series 2. By years end we will be hugging people again 3. SpaceX will break two records... One; the number of launches/year from a single company and Two; the number o...

I recently found out that the COVID-19 pandemic has prevented many suppliers of Christmas trees from Canada from selling across the border.   So now we have spruce thieves - individuals that illegally cut off spruce tops. They work late at night, and use fluorescent tape to mark their trails into the spruce swamps, so they don't get lost on the way out.   On any given night, two people in a 7- to 8-hour period can cut roughly 1,000 tops which can sell for as much as a dollar...

The joys of winter! It's beautiful...everything coated in white, brisk mornings where you can see your breath, the crunch of snow under your feet and sitting in front of a nice warm, cozy fire.   And of course...battling with the snow thrower, slipping and banging your head, shoveling really heavy snow and dealing with drivers that should not be on the road.   Ralph Waldo Emerson sums it up for me... "The hard soil and four months of snow make the inhabitants of the northern...

Yesterday was my birthday. In this day and age, part of anybody's birthday is receiving digital wishes. Facebook, LinkedIn, text and email. I think I answered them all...although I'm not 100% sure :)   The highlight of the day (which was rather quiet) was having my son over for dinner. It's his birthday on the 15th so we celebrate us. Then my daughter and second son streamed in through Facebook's Portal which is hooked up to the TV so they were life size. It was great having ...

A couple of weeks ago, I was participating in a weekly Zoom. There were eight people who shared the same feeling about what is going on in the world and one did not.   The person that did not share the same feeling started to express his point of view using analogies. Within minutes he was viified and although we did move on, he subsequently dropped out of the group.   I was silent during the exchange yet I believe I share responsibility in the meeting going south. It seems ...

I'm staring at a legend on TV. Aex Trebek. He passed away about two weeks ago but his new episodes that he shot will play till Christmas day.   It's a bit eerie knowing the future of a man as his life is passing by in front of you, day by day.   Alex hosted more than 8,200 Jeopardy! episodes, setting a Guinness World Record for hosting the most episodes of a single game show. He won the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Game Show Host seven times, and was honored with a Life...

I think the celebration Fred wrote about yesterday was caused by at least these three things; the weather, the results and the undeniable fact that we are all living in a box with significantly less human contact. Whether it's our home, our car or the small square screen of a computer, we exist within these constraints because of a raging virus that's ripping through our lives.   In some ways I'm thankful for the reflective time, since I experienced tragedy in my business rec...
