A Bowl Full Of Lemons works with all Browsers, except Internet Explorer

A Bowl Full Of Lemons works with all Browsers, except Internet Explorer

While doing my surfing on Pinterest today, I found a post from a friend about organization, which led me to the a bowl full of lemons website. With organization being one of my top favorite subjects to read and learn about, I had to go to their website. I absolutely love that they disclose in big red font that their blog works best with all browsers, except Internet Explorer.
First of all, I am not a fan of anyone being proprietary. Internet Explorer is the browser we all love to hate. It doesn't conform to standards for coding or rendering. However, with that said, Internet Explorer is known to be the best browser to acquire viruses with and is the best browser to download another browser with. I am a Chrome and Firefox fan and use them whenever possible. I say that because I have found that some websites have not been cross compatible with all browsers and will only work with IE, still forcing you to use their browser.
I love the idea and think this is a good way to show your loyalty for the browsers that actually deserve to be shown some love.

If you put it on Facebook, then it's up for discussion.

If you are going to express an opinion, then expect the facts. Yes, some or many people may agree with you, but not always, and that's alright. Isn't it?
It's not my fault that you can't handle the truth. But don't try to bully me into silence with you and all your friends. I will stand up for what's right, even if it means being the only one to speak up. Not once did I get an answer to the question. But instead for the sake of avoiding answering, making personal attacks to my character. Again, proving my point, even further. If you put it on Facebook, then it's up for discussion. Don't tell me not to comment. I'm not going to sit there and say you're right when in fact you're not. If those are the kind of friends you need in your life, then I pity you. It is even clearer to me that we are not meant to be friends because I won't pacify you, nor will I be bullied into silence. Just because you're having a bad day or a hard time with life, doesn't mean you get to take it out on or belittle others. Sorry for your life choices.
What would you do? Do you keep the friend because it's okay to have a diffidence of opinion or do you delete the friend because you realize that their values are different than yours?

Road Side Margaritas

Road Side Margaritas
by Jeanné M. Tatro

On my way home from school yesterday, I was thinking of waiting until I got closer to my town to get an iced coffee from Dunkin Donuts, but the weather was so nice and I was thirsty and couldn't wait. While driving, I was thinking that I would stop at the first Convenience store and buy a Root Beer. After finally making that decision, there was an ice cream cart on the side of the road set up in the Juncos and Cavey resteraunt parking lot. I was going to drive past it, but while sitting at the red light, I noticed a sign that said Pina Coladas. Suddenly, I couldn't resist it and was curious. So I decided to stop by and get one.

While talking to the person on duty, I found out that it was Alvin Woods, from Alvin's All-Natural Ice Cream which was developed at STCC's Technology park back in late 1999, early 2000. They were able to develop it and get it into some area supermarkets like BigY and Stop and Shop. He tried to compete with some major brands and it was unsuccessful, so in 2007, they tried the Open Air Ice Cream Concept in the Springfield Area, since the market was open for that idea. 

“We just opened another location in Forest Park at the X. We now have 2 locations. We sell fresh pina coladas, tropical sorbets and all-Natural Ice Cream. Everything is made from scratch. Everything is basically organic, it just doesn't have the organic label. Hopefully we can penetrate the market and establish a home base here in Springfield and continue STCC's Entrepeneurial Institute's success rate.” said Alvin.

“Being in the service community, selling a world class product, speaks for itself. Once they taste it, they love it. The price is family-friendly, especially in this particular neighborhood. I think we have a successful model that we can grow on.” Alvin added.

Odaliz Breton has been aware of Alvin's Ice Cream for about three or four weeks now and was at the location ordering when he told me that he likes it because “it's addictive. It keeps him coming back. It's feels natural, it feels like a natural taste. It's local.”
