2149 Springfield Rd, Kelowna, BC V1Y 7X1

Was having major troubles with my teeth for the first time in my life, other then only having three wisdom teeth and needing one removed to even out my mouth. Having been born lucky with an almost perfect jaw. I take great pride trying to maintain this bite, but, I couldn’t get my hands into my mouth to floss, and the water pick wasn’t cutting it. I lamented about this at work, as I had just seen my dentist and somehow, I was getting cavities in places I knew I was flossing. She suggested this place, and though nervous to try someone else, within a month, this team had my mouth on the road to recovery, as they had removed tartar buildup under the gums which relieved tension in my face muscles. A truly incredible experience, I recommend this place for SMILES 100%!!!!

Research Your Apps – Free Doesn’t Mean Free

I’m quite fond of the fact that in our technical day and age, it is becoming more and more common place to ‘Have an App for that!’ Apps make our lives easier, from helping cutting down extraneous tasks to graphic editing. For Android users, many apps are free, made by other users, which can include options such as either ‘Pay to use better options’ or ‘Pay to get rid of ads’.

That being said, an easily downloaded application has become scammers next target. A Toronto Security company has discovered an App called ‘Xhelper’ which is now termed as a malware that is impossible to remove, as it has the ability to reinstall itself and is designed to remain hidden! It even has code to ensure it isn’t deleted when a Factory Reset is prompted, and performs malicious actions such as “showing advertisements to the users, downloading and executing more malicious payloads from its remote server onto the users device”

My advice as a tech user is to research your apps before downloading! Look through those Reviews, weed out the Automated replies, make sure this app is right for you, and if it looks suspicious, DON’T DOWNLOAD!!!! And as an extra layer of protection, or to ensure that you haven’t already succumbed to this malware, install a malware detector.

Stay safe out there my friends!

Say No to Pesticides Killing Off Our Bees!

Just when I thought humans had started figuring it out, we’ve got sneaky buggers trying to re-instate chemical usage that will finish killing off our already endangered bees! As a gardener, I’m aware it may be “easier” to grow plants when you don’t have to worry about bugs, but when you don’t have the pollen carrier, the plants will just DIE, and so ends green things being able to live on this earth, at least in our current natural cycle.

‘Sum of Us’ activists have put forward a campaign to save these poor bees, let’s do our part in ensuring our future!

Dozens of bee species are now extinct or on the verge of disappearing. But Bayer and its cronies are twisting the EU’s arm into ignoring bee-saving rules against harmful pesticides — the same rules that got toxic neonicotinoids banned last year.

We all rely on bees to pollinate fruit, vegetables and crops. But around the world bees are in decline, putting the future health of our planet at risk — and unless the EU takes concrete steps to save the bees, this trend shows no sign of reversing.

MEPs urgently need to challenge the bureaucrats that buckled to Bayer’s lobbyists. MEPs could force a U-turn, and revive plans to crack down on all bee-harming pesticides. 

It’s the EU’s job to force corporations like Bayer to take bee health seriously — and prevent deadly, bee-killing chemicals from flooding our fields. Bayer shouldn’t be telling the EU what to do. Across Europe, MEPs plastered their election campaigns with pledges to save the bees. Will you sign the petition now to tell MEPs to live up to their promises?

Sign the petition to demand that MEPs fix this mess urgently and protect bees from deadly pesticides.

When Someone Sends You Too Much Money – It’s Probably Too Good To Be True! – Photography Over-payment Scam –

You’ve been asked to be the photographer at an event. You’ve signed a contract stating the details, and are eagerly awaiting your payment. However, when it arrives, it’s almost QUADRUPLE the amount you were to be sent! Questioning, you’re told it’s an accounting error and to send the rest to the wedding caterer. You send the money, only to have the deposit/cheque BOUNCE, leaving you out thousands of dollars!

This sounds like something out of a horror film, but what’s truly terrifying is that it’s been happening all across BC the last little while!

The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre recommends that people protect themselves “protect yourself by knowing who you are doing business with and never accept a cheque for more than your selling price,” when it comes to the overpayment scam.

The BBB also warns that a legitimate company will never ask someone to forward money.

Canada Post Signs for Packages, and REFUSE to Be held responsible for missing parcels.

I received a delivery notice on August 6th, and when I went in to get it, they told me it was ‘downloaded’ at their location, which meant it was still on a truck. 2 weeks and 3 visits later, I still didn’t have my parcel. I phoned head office to put in a ticket, in an effort to figure out where it had gone, only to find out that my parcel had been signed for by someone else.

I asked it be looked into, they pushed at the depot, who questioned AGAIN if this was my signature, then told me the card was given in error (Even though in half their system it still shows as outstanding) and that I need to contact the vendor for a new item. (See below for email chain, do note the contact information has been shortened) How the hell is this the vendors fault?

This is the same person who I fought with to ensure her staff delivered my mail to my mailbox, not lazily dropping it off in my neighbor’s box.

Now, I’d like to point out the fact I’ve been finding my priority mail (Which is supposed to be delivered only to an individual who can provide the correct ID) in my mailbox without verification, and after this latest series of events, I’m left wondering if they delivered it to the wrong address, and if they did, they definitely didn’t ID the individual, or it’s the mail-person themselves signing off on my mail, which is ILLEGAL. If I see this signature on anymore of my mail, know Canada Post will have a lot to answer for. The only way we will see change is if more of us stand up and say how wrong this truly is.

to me

It was delivered August 6 to your house. The delivery notice card was given to you in error. Our GPS shows it delivered to your house. If you don’t have phone sender and let them know it did not arrive and they will send you another one. Tell sender to put in a claim at Canada post. Very sorry for inconvenience

Tracy @ canadapost

*After this email was sent, I called Canada Post again, and they forced the issue again. The lady in the above mentioned email was asked to look into it again, and after 3 more days of investigation and mention that three other parcels at the Capri location were ‘lost’ like mine, she gave me my tracking number instead of the delivery notice card, and after tracking that, realized it was delivered the same day as the delivery notice! Apparently another practice that is done (which is supposedly going to be addressed) is that the mail person dropping off the packages will write up all the delivery cards ahead of time, and left it in error and while also incorrectly leaving behind the parcel as well.
