Incentive Overtime Offered for Alberta Nurse

Looking for a job that comes with lots of money? Look no further! Become a nurse and work for Alberta’s healthcare, (as this practice below is not active in BC) and you’ll never have to worry again!

Incentive Overtime is being offered to nurses when no one can be found at straight time. What that means is that you offer out the shift to everyone at Straight time, then Over time, then once all calls have been exhausted, you send out a final call-out to everyone, regardless if you are straight time or over time, you will get Overtime when you go in.

Hearing of this practice petrifies me, I feel like patient care is being lost in the dollar signs. I hope this practice NEVER comes to BC.

Mr Mozzarella Kelowna Pizza & Wings

★★★★★

11-4600 Lakeshore Rd, Kelowna, BC V1W 1X4

This place is incredible! Once a month, they hold a pizza draw online, and when you win, you get LOADED with pizza!!! Our office of 20 was easily fed by the amount, their pizza was delectable and their wings not soggy! I feel this place makes their product for the right reasons, and I hope their quality and care will continue!

Snug Lake Amphitheatre

Mile 7, Pike Mountain Forest Service Road, Thompson-Nicola N, BC

★★★★★

Majestic views all day long, however, be prepared to layer up and layer down as fluctuations in weather temperatures is a frequent normality. Also, prepare your knees for the hike between stages, however, the discomfort is well worth the reward. A peaceful, tranquil, magical, relaxing, soothing space that will leave your soul rejuvenated.

Gather Restaurant

460 Doyle Ave #105, Kelowna, BC V1Y 0C2

Ordered a wrap, however, the description was misleading and I ended up with a sushi ‘wrap’. While still delicious, I feel the board could be re-written to prevent confusion.

The ingredients were the finest I’ve tasted in a long time, spinach, carrot, and teriyaki beef in a mix of white and wild rice, all wrapped and a above par piece of seaweed! While I won’t be frequenting this place as the prices are high, I know where to get a excellent quality meal.

Pharmacy Dispensing Fees

I went to pick up my prescription the other day, and realized it was a bit more expensive then I remembered. I had recently moved pharmacies as a new location had opened up conveniently under my work location. However, this location had been tacking on an extra 4 dollars for a dispensing fee! For the extra 5 minutes it takes me to go to the other location, I’ll keep my 4 dollars thanks!

So, word to the wise, ask what their dispensing fees are before hoping over to a more convenient location!

Dollarama

171 Hollywood Rd S, Kelowna, BC V1X 3S8

Growing up in Rutland, the most exciting thing around was Value Village and the few pretend dollar stores that popped up and went out of business in the IGA strip mall. (You know the ones, most items range from 5-20 dollars, rarely having any items lower then a Toonie) This location will see lots of business as the location is one of the most spacious in Kelowna, and while it appears they are still working on getting the perfect team together, it was organized & clean.

My vehicle went in for a tire change, and came out with a scrape. I felt bad bringing it up, they’ve always been so good to me. They booked me in after verifying they made the damage. I then managed to miss the first appointment, a scheduling error on my part, however, they re-booked me in! As I dropped it off, I again stressed which scratch was theirs and which was mine. Picking it up today, they not ONLY fixed their scrape, they fixed the other two scratches which had been made earlier in the year. I’m overwhelmed with gratitude, and can’t begin to express how kind and caring they are. Thank you for the customer service and care you provide, please keep up the good work!

BE A PART IN THE FIGHT AGAINST CRUELTY IN THE MEAT INDUSTRY!

I’m sure most who know me know I’m not huge into posting nasty pictures without context, facts or a reason other then fear-mongering in regards to the meat industry. (For more on how I feel on that click here)

That being said, know this link is a list of facts and information in regards to how MacDonald’s painfully induces growth hormones. HOWEVER – It also includes a way we hope to force them to stop doing what they are doing! This cruelty should be made to answer for, and anyone who truly believes posting videos chalked full of random photos, lies and information meant to pull on people’s heartstrings will make a difference, are completely blind. This does nothing except promote fear-mongering.

Today all you who are against the meat industry finally have a chance to make a difference, and it will cost you less then that coffee you’re drinking, or the upgrade to your phone game.
