6 flavors of Almond Based Spread

Amygdala – Almond Based Spread

Our signature almond spread.  It melts on the tongue and resonates with a surprisingly creamy cold temperature.  This spread can be used for any occasion.  It can be paired with carrots or broccoli, chips or crackers, celery, pretzels, or even French fries on the days where we feel like living dangerously.  The list of ingredients held within this item is a short one:  almonds, grape-seed oil, garlic, liquid-aminos, and various spices.  All ingredients used are ones that are good for your body.  Spreads are not necessarily exclusive to the “Guilty Pleasure” category.  Some of them reign over all with the title of “Healthy Luxury,” as this one does.​

  1. Original: Our first flavor, classic, smooth. Certified Vegan and Gluten Free
  2. Tomato Basil: Bright red fruit, dark green shreds of leaf, a flavor of culture.  Contained within this spread, the ever classic combination of tomato and basil.
  3. Roasted Bell Pepper: The Baja rush of coastal breeze and wave’s crashing spray.  This spread emits the cool of bell peppers.
  4. Chipotle: Smokey, spicy. A unique rush of flavor with medium heat.
  5. Habanero: Fire refreshing.  This spread has the added bonus of habanero chili pepper.
  6. Jalapeno & Cilantro: The ever classic chili pepper, harvested luxuriant.  This spread burns and clears, it vitalizes the very air we breathe.

Apple Mac OS 10.9 and Sharp Printer Drivers Not Compatible @Sharp_USA @SharpExpert
 

Apple Mac OS 10.9 and Sharp Printer Drivers Not Compatible

Apparently Sharp fell behind the Mac OS update curve when Apple released Mac OS 10.9 earlier this week, the Mavericks update basically breaks the Sharp driver preventing the use of the Job Handling and other functions.

If anyone else has experienced issue with this or has found a solution, please share.

Systems running 10.8 and below are working normally.

The machine we use is the Sharp MX-3100N Office printer/copier?

The version on the site is only good for 10.8 and below.

@attcustomercare @att Rude Employee at AT&T Belmont CA Store
 

A rude employee at Belmont Ca Store.

This evening, 10/21/2013, at about 8:20 p.m., my wife and I were about to enter your store on O’Neill and El Camino Real  here in Belmont, CA.

As I got  out of our car, right in front of the door, your employee entered the store and proceeded to lock the door in my face. I checked the business hours online before we came and I understood that the store was open until 9:00 p.m. I then tapped on the glass door to ask what their hours were and all I heard in an annoyed  manner was “WE ARE CLOSED!”

I wanted to ask what time they opened but, again, he shook his head and indicated that the store was closed.

Maybe they were closing early. That didn’t matter. I only wanted to ask when they were open but he seemed to only be interested closing with not enough courtesy to respond. Even if he couldn’t hear me through the crack in the door, he could have come closer to hear what I was saying. I am 70 years old and I’m pretty sure that I don’t or didn’t look like I wanted to rob him or something.

As it turned out, I was the one who was annoyed and disgusted. I have been an AT&T Data customer for years and I only wanted to ask how to transfer my iPad Internet access account to a new device.

I am seriously thinking of going to Verizon where I know I am appreciated.

Healthcare.gov – Can the Government Healthcare Website Be Fixed? @HealthCareGov #GetCovered
 

Healthcare.gov is the US Government’s website to deliver a platform for people in the US to signup for healthcare.

The site has been plagued by outages, error pages, issues with processing. Yet the government is asking everyone to consider joining. While the site performs more than just informational services and is processing applications, the site had a lot riding on it before the launch several weeks ago.  The Health and Human Services Department failed to deliver a stable solid platform able to deliver.  Now President Obama is having to apologize to all those who have tried to use the site and not been able to as well as encourage those who have not even been to the site after hearing all the negative buzz.

There has been much discussion about the company that was selected for the building of the site, CGI Federal, a subsidary of a Canadian firm called CGI Group. A Canadian company was selected to build a US Government website? Yes.  Why? When in fact CGI Federal has little to little experience in the Government space, and on top of that was paid close to $100 million($93.7) to build the site! CGI is hiring for the project, as example see this position

With over 500,000 applications to date, the site is surely getting lots of traffic, in  the millions of hits per day with users trying to retrieve information on the process.  Over 19 million unique visitors since the launch, which each visit is at least 2-3 pages.  And if you have troubles with the site you can try to connect but using social media or leaving feedback.

https://www.healthcare.gov/connect/

twitter: @HealthCareGov

hashtag: #GetCovered

Large scale enterprise and consumer experts should have been brought in before the launch. Now we hear that over 5 million lines of code needs to be written to fix the site and it could not be ready until mid December 2013.

Can the Obama administration fix the issues quickly with what they term a “tech surge” which is basically bringing in experts from other parts of the government and outside experts to fix the site.   read more on what is being done on a blog posting by the HHS here

 

So this failure to deliver a stable platform, yet the Government wants everyone to signup, I guess you can try and report your errors.
