Do companies really think that when they downsize a product, that no one will notice, or be happy that they did? Nabisco Honey Maid Graham Crackers. They have been the same since I was a kid. In 2008, the box was the same size, but they started putting fewer crackers in the box, the next year the crackers got narrower. They still have the perforation down the center for easy breaking in half, I don’t know why they left that there, as they are so narrow now, there is no point in having the brea [..]

Texting while driving is in the news a lot lately as some states have passed laws against the practice. How about a law to just drive the car non-distracted. This would include everything, and all devices. Every ones job is to drive the car, paying attention to the road and what is going on around them. I've seen a guy twice texting on my way to work, driving all over the road, crossing marked lanes, almost hitting the curb; and I'm talking within 2 inches! I'll post an update when I see hi [..]

A have a question I have not seen raised on the cruise line disaster of the Costa Concordia when it ran aground January 13, 2012 off the coast of the Tuscan island of Giglio. Although the executives of the cruise line have said the captain was on an unauthorized route; it appears from local villagers that these ships have done this repeatedly in the past. With that said, I would think all of these large ships would have a GPS and tracking type devices, so operations at corporate would know where [..]

It's time the two party system went the way of the Dodo bird. People in these parties seem only to care on issues that helps each parties agenda. We need just people who get the job done, and do whats best for the country, and it's people. Donald Trump wants this country to be great again, and he's right, it's not great now. The United States is reaching the boiling point, then it will just be steam that can't be contained. We can't wait any longer for change, we must stop the bickering, and sol [..]

Want to change how our politicians run the government? It's time we change our politicians. For the next few elections, vote for the person on the bottom of the ticket, in each category. These people have the least amount of funds, and therefore will appreciate the dollar a whole lot more, and can not buy there way into office. What do you think? Support ETL, Elect The Last. No donation needed, just action on your part. Just a concept to think about.

The root of many corporate/company problems is this. CUSTOMER SERVICE. Clark Howard on CNN uses the phrase 'customer no-service'; and it’s sad but true. If you owned a company, or were in charge of it; think about how you would treat a customer, then think about how your under-paid customer service employees treat them, and I mean HOW THEY TREAT THEM, not how you THINK they treat them. If I had a company, just one person, I would be able to do what was needed for a customer. If I needed employ [..]

The State promotes using cell phones while driving. When you drive down any highway today, you will eventually see a sign that says "Traffic Info dial 511". Many laws going into effect to stop distracted driving; yet they encourage it, hmmmmmm?

Church & State: With all the rivalries going in in many towns and cities about religious icons and words on public/town/city property; think about this. Since all our government workers are workers of the state, maybe they should all work Christmas Day? Why is this a paid holiday? I don't want to see this happen, but think about this the next time you read about a person trying to get the "Ten Commandments" off the courthouse steps. Next it will be take the word "GOD" off our money.

I recently received another advertisement in my newspaper for Bed, Bath & Beyond, along with it was a coupon for $5 off any item. I decided to write to them and let them know why these coupons are so pointless, and they do not entice me to go there and shop. If you read the fine print on the coupon, I counted 40 brands for which the coupon could not be used at all. I immediately wondered how many SKU’s that this would multiply out to, probably thousands. I emailed to BB&B about it; I told them [..]
