FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Civility Works!

After a recent visit to the Pittsburgh area, I was once again delighted with the friendliness of the community.  The folks working in the stores and malls we patronized were exceptional in making us feel glad we patronized said businesses.  It wasn’t that they were obsequious, it was that they seemed genuinely friendly.  

I live in a suburb of Philadelphia.   It seems the closer I get to Philly the less civility I find.   This isn’t a blanket condemnation but more of an observation based on experience.   Our suburban area is friendly but not nearly as friendly as I find the Pittsburgh area when I visit.  

The civility makes for a more pleasant environment but….it also increases sales!  We bought more, partially because the people selling to us seemed to be genuinely interested in what we wanted.   That should give you food for thought.  Not only is civility more pleasant, it can be more profitable! 

If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
