[Orchids & Onions] Kudos to companies that bridge digital divide

One of the most amusing things for me, a digital cynic, is to see how the clevers from the net trash newspapers up, down and sideways, yet when they want their gushing PR releases to get proper traction, then who they gonna call? Not Ghostbusters, but newspapers...

Gazebo World announces price and warranty increase

We all too aware that everyone hates receiving the dreaded price increase notification but we are proud to say that for four years we have continuously absorbed all the losses caused by the weakening rand, we have not increased our prices since the year 2010. We do, however regret that the time has come to increase pricing on some of our product lines (not all of them). The good news is that we have kept the increases to a bare minimum and we hope this will make very little difference compared to some other increases we are currently experiencing.

It is the online era, and we have become inherently accustomed to social media and instant communication. Everything is just a click away. Our lives are online and our children's lives are most certainly online.

[Orchids & Onions] The 'Poster Vigilante' will leave this billboard alone

I have a handy weapon, which I call "The Equaliser", because it dispenses instant community justice to those who will break the law. It is a pair of wire cutters and deals equally well with wire or cable ties. It has enabled me to become a poster vigilante...

On special... yeah right!

When I am alerted by a friend or an advertisement about a "special" at a supermarket (and it is really special), I make the effort to pop into the store to make a "bargain" purchase. But often there is no stock left, although the promotion is still due to run for another week. It drives me crazy!
