22 Days till Christmas – Connie Talbot’s Christmas Songs

Other / Canada

Remember Connie Talbot of Britain’s Got Talent’s “Somewhere over the Rainbow“?

She sang one of her favourite songs ” I Will Always Love You.” and someone on youtube added a video of the song in a Christmas context entitled “I will Always Love you Christmas”! Lovely!


Coincidentally, Connie has released a brand new album called “Connie Talbot’s Christmas Album” which has an awesome collection of classic and modern Christmas songs. Here’s “When A Child Is Born” from her new album:

The dissapearance of Country Crock

Other / Canada

Today i’d like to talk about Country Crock and the overnight dissapearance of this marvelous spread.

Years ago I’d buy this odd margarine for a change of pace, it always tasted different then other spreads and was nice for a change.

One cold morning years ago after walking through 10 feet of snow to my local grocery,(OK Im exaggerating a little )  I was shocked.  Country Crock was no longer on the shelves! It had completely dissapeared.

How could this be?

A few years ago I contacted Country Crock asking why this product was no longer available in Canada. Was there something in the oils that is now prohibited from Canada?

The response was as follows:

Hello and thanks you for taking the time to contact Country Crock. This product has never been available in Canada, please ask your local grocerer to carry our products.  Thank you.

 Obviously, that got me nowhere. I’m not crazy, well for the most part i’m not. I know this product was once sold here, then suddenly dissapeared.

Perhaps the company changed hands, it wasn’t profitable enough in Canada, or one of the ingredients is prohibited.

Can anyone out there shed some light on Shedd’s Country Crock and its dissapearance?

Inquiring minds want to know.

McDonald’s Mondays: McLearnin’ 1972

Ever wonder if you had what it took to work in a McDonald’s in the early 70’s? Neither have I, but employee training films floating around the net are always good for a laugh, and getting a glimpse into an early 70’s McDonald’s is too cool for words to a McManiac such as myself.

It’s December 1st – Welcome to 24 hour Wal-Mart!

Other / Canada

Just in time for the holiday shopping crunch time, December 1st marks the first day of 24 hour Wal-Mart shopping at many of the stores in our country.  While many stores will be choosing to keep these late hours it’s not an every store thing.  Make sure you call your local Wal-Mart before making that 4am trek.

Am I crazy, or is it kind of nice to be able to get some holiday shopping done in the off hours when you’re not fighting your way through the crowds?

23 Days till Christmas – Going-Out-of-Business Sales Not Such a Bargain

Tips & Tricks

I’m sorry I missed the past 2 days of Christmas countdowns because I had loads of school work to finish during the weekend. Today’s post is not very Christmasy but since many stores are having liquidation sales this holiday season I thought it would be a good heads up.

Apparently what liquidators do is raise the prices above regular prices and then discount the items. You can end up paying more than regular prices at “liquidation sales”! Here’s an ABC news video about this (it also applies to Canada):
