ADMINISTRIVIA: Remember Stella D’Oro?

2016-Dec-01

FROM FACEBOOK

This is a public service announcement – especially to all Riverdalians. Remember how growing up when Stella D’Oro was making breakfast treats the entire neighborhood smelled like almond? Then they were sold to Nabisco and the smell was gone and the cookie was never really the same. Now they’ve been sold again and the result is CRAP. I bought Swiss Fudge Cookies to bring somewhere today and when they were opened they were dry, chalky and basically horrible. IS NOTHING SACRED???? :(

[JR: While not by a Jasper, I read this and remembered. Thought my fellow Jaspers would get a laff out of it. I remember the Mounties that used to hand with “us” would swear that the scent add to their waistline and their cyclic depression. Laugh! I think I can still remember the scent of those cookies. Argh! Now I just added to my circumference. Sorry for the aside, but I connect Stella D’Oro with Alma Mater.]

ADMINISTRIVIA: MAILCHIMP fails me for “spam”?

2016-Aug-20

And, no response from their “compliance team”.

I assume I’ll have to do something else. 

Argh!

ADMINISTRIVIA: Last week’s issue had an incorrect title internally

2016-Jun-19

“Haste makes waste” — Ben Franklin

In posting this week’s issue, I notice that last week’s had an incorrect title only on Facebook.

Interesting, Facebook picks up the title from an internal web page header. Last week, I screwed it up — how I don’t know — but Facebook picked it up.

I fixed the issue on the jasper jottings website but couldn’t doing anything about the Facebook post.

Argh!

ADMINISTRIVIA: To Mexico this week end

2016-May-19

Going to Mexico for a friend’s wedding.

(Not mine! My fiancé has decided that we’ll wed the day before I die so she can get a bulk discount on the church and combine the reception and repast to save “my” money. Laugh! … … Good thing she doesn’t read my Jasper Jottings.)

So there is a possibility, depending upon the inet “gods”, that I may not be able to push the weekly issue from there. At worst it could be delayed until Tuesday. At best, no difference in schedule at all.

But then, you get what you pay for.
