Free cup of coffee @ Starbucks on Earth Day

Bring a travel mug into your neighbourhood Starbucks this Earth Day, Wednesday, April 22 and Starbucks will fill it with complimentary freshly brewed Pike Place Roast.

There is no need to be environmentally friendly only on Earth Day. I just recently realized that Starbucks wll take 10¢ off your drink every time you use your travel mug at participating Starbucks.
10¢ doesn't seem like much but think of all those paper cups you're saving that can't be recycled!

Hope everyone will have a happy and thoughtful Earth Day!

Paid Surveys: Pinecone Research

If you're interested in an extra $5, once in a while, and want a say in future products, you might want to sign up for Pinecone Research. I've been a member of this for a number of years and have done surveys for them on food products primarily. There is the occasional product testing and they send you the product directly to your home. Only one person per household can sign up. I don't get a referral fee so sign up if you're interested - I don't get anything for it! :)

New affordable clothing line at Zellers

I'll admit it, I love a good deal on clothes. I have no qualms surfing Loblaws or Superstore aisles for Joe Fresh clothes and accessories, as long as its reasonably priced and fashionable.

Now, there's a new clothing line in town by one of Canada's own fashion pioneers. Alfred Sung, who was one of the founding partners of Club Monaco, now is offering Pure by Alfred Sung at Zellers as of April 1st and I'm definitely looking forward to his line. Hopefully, it'll live up to the hype and be priced well according to Zeller's target audience. I'm going to go check it out and try to report on style and pricing.

Yes, CEOs Should Facebook And Twitter

I found this Forbes article linked on Linkedin (no pun intended) and thought it was an interesting read. While this article is about senior corporate involvement in social networking, it got me to thinking about how those not in the "C-suite" can utilize these media for their own business gains.

Yes, I enjoy Facebook and Twitter socially but I do think that there is so much more potential for both of them. As we are in this economic downturn and so many of us are faced with job loss, a greater emphasis is placed on networking and timely response to job postings when applying to positions.

Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, etc. could be the edge that you're looking for to jump ahead of the competition. Be it, tweeted about a new job opportunity or seeing a news item/link on your friend's status. Act quickly on what you see or read and you could be well on your way to your next job. Unfortunately, its not always your work experience that lands you that interview but getting noticed and being at the right place at the right time.

Dr Horrible's Sing Along Blog: Act 1, Part 1

I might be a little slow on this but caught something on TV that made me look this up. Neil Patrick Harris is too funny!

Sun Life Financial Museum and Arts Pass

For those living in Toronto (and/or have access to a Toronto Public Library card), you're in luck.

"With the Sun Life Financial Museum and Arts Pass (MAP), you and your family can explore the best of Toronto's arts and cultural treasures for free.

With a valid adult Toronto Public Library card, you can borrow a MAP for your family at any Toronto Public Library branch. Quantities are limited and borrowing rules apply."

The notable museums are Art Gallery of Ontario, Ontario Science Centre, Casa Loma and the Royal Ontario Museum (the later four passses are only available at select libraries).

"Borrowing Rules

A valid adult Toronto Public Library card is all that you need to borrow a Sun Life Financial Museum and Arts Pass (MAP) for your family.

  • One pass per valid adult library card per week – each pass admits one family. Patrons cannot borrow more than one pass at per week.

  • Admission parameters vary by organisation, but most venues provide access for up to two adults and up to four children during regular operating hours. The back of each pass specifies details and restrictions. Each pass is good for one visit only.

  • Sun Life Financial Museum and Arts Passes cannot be renewed or reserved. They are available only on a first-come, first-served basis in limited quantities.

  • You can borrow passes to any of the participating venues, and you can borrow them more than once.

  • Passes do not have to be returned to the Library but instead are surrendered at the venue. There are no overdue fines or fees on the Sun Life Financial Museum and Arts Pass."
This seems like a great idea for couples and familes feeling the financial crunch and still want free cultural events. Although with limited passes, you have to be flexible with your plans as certain museum passses could be unavailable when you want to go.

If anyone wants to take me, I'm game! Unfortunately, I live in Mississauga and don't have a Toronto Public library card.

Giving it another go...

Talk about a long time since last posting. A lot has happened in the last couple months and I'm trying to blog again and get into twitter. I registered eons ago and since I'm unemployed right now, I have a lot of time to waste. :P

Hopefully, these are good ways of staying in touch with people and feel free on following me and I might be a follower of yours!

I've also updated the format of my blog. Its 2009, time to declutter and go for a simpler look. Let me know if you like.
