BC Woman’s Nightmare Experience with Air Canada

Friday, July 3rd, 2015

I’ve done business travel out of Pearson International Airport (Toronto) for 12 years and I can attest that Air Canada is the worst airline in Canada.

Not that we have much of a choice, because there is only Air Canada and WestJet in Canada now. The customer facing employees are rude, they don’t care and a lot of the times don’t know what they are talking about. The on plane staff, is pretty much the worst in the industry. I’ve flown international for several years and would have to say, that the Air Canada crews and check-in agents are usually the worst (rude/indifferent).

100’s of South Korean Schools Cancel – Fear of Radioactive Rain

Empty south korean school - radioactive rain

After the Japan nuclear plant release of radiative water into the ocean the technicians at the Fukushima plant plugged a crack that had been gushing contaminated water into the Pacific.

This contamination in waters off the coast has fallen dramatically since then, but chances of the winds and rain heading towards South Korean might contain radiation.

This could affect the drinking water and food supply from fruits, vegetables and milk, not to mention fish from waters of South Korea.

Back From My California Vacation – Hard To Get Back To Work (Mind is still on vacation)

Wednesday, August 26th, 2009

Back from California, Monterey, Santa Cruz, San Francisco, Marin, Gilroy

Got back from my vacation to different parts of California last week, and I am finding it very difficult to get back into the groove of things when it comes to work at the office.  I guess it is because my vacation in California was so relaxing and fun.  While I was there, I didn’t even think about all the stupid things that are happening at my job right now…like slow sales, dumb ass management and the possibility of lay offs.  My wife and I just enjoyed ourselves which is after all the purpose of a vacation, and i guess I did just that.
