This is a haiku/photo from last summer that I was thinking about on Sunday, when I was grooming Mr. Cheddar.

How he ♥♥ his weekly combing with his fav slicker brush.

Nails every 2-3 weeks, not so much but he’s pretty good about that too.

And in-between, he does a great job with his ahhhem…tongue. ;)

Mr. Cheddar, isn’t he purrrrfection? :)

Trip Advisor and Their Policy Re: Censoring Reviews

Geraldine:

I would appreciate your opinion re: this recent experience I had posting a review at Trip Advisor, which was subsequently removed from their site.

Thanks so much and Happy Mid-Week!

As any of my regular readers already know, I’m an avid online reviewer, including at Amazon.com (I’m in the top 2000 reviewers there), at my 3 blogs and also at various commercial sites online.

I signed up at the TripAdvisor.casite a while ago and wrote a few reviews there since then.

My questions re: their censoring reviews came up recently when I noted that my review of The Preserved Seed Restaurant in Nelson, BCwhich had been posted for several months on the Trip Advisor site, had now been removed.

What I ALSO noted at the same time was that all other negative reviews in a similar vein to the review I had written about this restaurant (they have more than one location) had also been removed. 

I was not able to find the original review I wrote as they have deleted it off their site and…

Are You Drowning in Pumpkin Puree? ;-)

how do you fix a broken pumpkin?

I JUST PUMPKIN, ANYTHING (pies, cookies, soups, muffins)… ! ;)

And this time of year, it seems like there are pumpkins and pumpkin recipes everywhere.

Last week, I was looking for a new recipe for a muffin that would include not only pumpkin, but dried cranberries and pecans too.

I found this oh so yummy one over at the Betty Crocker site for:

 Pumpkin Cranberry Muffins   (click for recipe)

They turned out great. A lovely dense but moist texture, flavorful and  colorful too.

A couple of tweaks:

I did cut back a bit on the sugar, used unbleached flour and added a dash of cloves and nutmeg to the dry mix too.

If you like pumpkin muffins, you’re going to ♥ these

Any fav pumpkin recipes (sweet or savory) to share? Please do. IMO, there’s no such thing as too much pumpkin….and it’s so good for us too!

Happy Cooking and Baking! :)

Back From My Trip and Playing “Catch Up” ;-)

 

october sunset 1

 

I just got back from my trip to Kelowna over the weekend and the computer catch-up continues! I thought I had cleaned things up pretty well before I left but I’m still going through waaaaay too many emails etc…today. Oh well, chipping away at the pile. ;)

I ended up getting a cold (I NEVER get colds!!!!) just when I was leaving for my trip, so the first 2 1/2 days were rather a bust. I spent most of that time lying in bed, watching old movies on TCM and sipping soup. After that, I did accomplish what I wanted to on my trip, albeit rather rushed for time. Overall though, I’m glad I went. :)

I’m planning some new reviews for a couple of products I tried while I was away, will share those soon. In the meantime, have a great week and if you are also battling a cold/flu…I hope you feel much better very soon. Seems that everyone I talk to has gotten or is battling a cold/flu right now. Tis the season I guess.

Hugs and Happy Week! G
