College Of Pharmacists
Attempt Public Control?

The College of Pharmacists of Alberta has adopted a resolution that will prohibit customers from collecting loyalty rewards, including AIR MILES®, on pharmacy purchases at pharmacies like Safeway, starting May 1, 2014.

I strongly disagree with the College's decision and believe that prohibiting the collection of AIR MILES
® for prescriptions and pharmacy services would be unfair to all Albertans.

The Coalition for Consumer Choice has been formed to provide consumers with a strong and united voice, sending a clear message to government that Albertans want them to stop the ban.

Please contact your MLA to voice your objections before the ban comes into effect. You may visit the
Elections Alberta website to find your MLA by entering your postal code.

This is an outrage for people like myself who have collected and used Air Miles for years. How dare the college try to infringe on the rights and freedoms of Albertans to collect airline points? They have zero authority to do so and the government needs to act now to stop the college ban. The college does indeed have the authority to regulate their members, but it ends there. They cannot be allowed to try and regulate the lives of ordinary Albertans.

Are they so naive and insecure that they think I run to my doctor and say, please give me a prescription, I need Air Miles? I would much rather not have to take the heart meds I now take, but if I have to take them, I may as well gain some Air Miles.

Please sign the petition.

Local resident Alan Towey continues to find beautiful sights to photograph when in Portugal. This shot of a tall ship in harbour is one such example.

Someone has finally explained the reason baby diapers have brand names such as "Luvs" and "Huggies," while undergarments for old people are called "Depends":

You see, when babies "mess" their pants, people are still gonna Luv 'em and Hug 'em.

However, when old people “mess" their pants, it "Depends" on who's in the will.

Glad to get that straightened out.

The Way To Reheat Pizza Is In A Skillet

The Way To
Some people already know this; this is for the people who do not. I had been eating leftover pizza for decades before it occurred to me.

Specifically, I was home by myself and procrastinating about putting a cold slice in the toaster oven to make it become a warm and floppy slice, when the solution revealed itself: Use a skillet.
