I’ve thought lately about going back to school, an electronics repair course would be right up my alley and would help out a lot. There’s only one place left in town that does repairs and they’re only doing TVs now from what I hear, so I’m sure there’d be a bit of business to […]

We own our debit machine while most stores and businesses rents theirs. The debit machines are different from the POS systems that one uses to record your sales but it is a must to have in any businesses. Some 5 yrs ago, we were approached by a company that sells debit machine […]

Foreign Doctors

My daughter’s doctor and 4 others are leaving town by the end of this year or early next year, thus leaving 1000s of people without a family doctor. It’s very disturbing how these doctors come and goes when the kids or family had already settled in with them and build a repertoire and warmth […]

Tis the Season (almost)

We decorated early this year, once Remembrance Day was over we started putting up the Christmas stuff. The window theme for the downtown this year is “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree”, so we’ve got Santa Homer playing drums, some snowmen will be on guitars and mic and we still need to get a tree […]

Godfather II

Finally, a video game sequel that doesn’t start you off with nothing. After destroying all the rival families in the original Godfather game in order to put yourself in the Don’s seat it just wouldn’t make sense to start off the sequel as a lowly nobody again, would it? But, reaching for a […]

Cheap Backup System

After having so much problem with viruses last week I decided it’s time I start doing regular backups, at least of the important data, the stuff that isn’t easy to get back. I realized that if my POS software were to get completely ruined it would take a looong time to restore. Nearly […]

Music Week in Yarmouth

Posted on November 11, 2009 - Filed Under Business, Entertainment, This Town | Leave a Comment

Despite all the hubbub over the event, and the down town “planners” requesting that we stay open longer than normal hours in order to accommodate all the extra people who would surely be in town, we noticed hardly any extra business during the music week festivities. I’m sure the restaurants and hotels did much […]

New Phone

My old phone served me well, had it for about 5 years and while it does still work, the screens on it are kinda messed up. I have to keep taking the battery out in order to reset them if I want to be able to see the call display or the number I’m […]

Someone was in the store the other day.. and asked my view regarding Th ‘Yarc and the present debate and fiasco that is going on .. about whether it should be on Parade Street or Collins Street? Who do I support? I’m an inside outsider and really I cannot give my comments nor […]
