Black Diamond Cheese, Canada: Terrible Customer Feedback System

Black Diamond Cheddar. How long is old cheddar aged? How about the extra old? I asked but did not get an answer.

Black Diamond Cheddar. How long is old cheddar aged? How about the extra old? I asked but did not get an answer.

I eat cheese on a regular basis. My favourite brand is Black Diamond. It is of consistent quality, and I have never had a problem with packaging. I wanted to know how long their “Old” cheddar is aged, vs their “extra old” cheddar. It seems to me a simple question.

The Black Diamond website has lovely pics of their cheese, but did not answer my question. I therefore filled in a feedback form asking my question. The response was, not really a response.

Getting Old Sucks, Especially if you are a Smartphone

The march of time stops for no one, rich or poor, for whomever. While humans may be able to mitigate their demise with a bit of compassion, there is none for old phones. Android phones grow old, older than 2 years old, slow down, and then get pitched into the back drawer, replaced by a new Android model, never to be turned on again.

Old Imperial Sewing Machine Ads in Canada

Call me crazy, but as the self-appointed archivist for Imperial sewing machines on the internet, I thought it would be great to display some ads from Eatons and Simpsons, here in Canada. These ads are from the 1960s, and are really good for time dating your machine. I thank the Library and Archives Canada for posting these resources online, for the betterment of the world. Note that the Archive only has specific years, namely 1965, 1967, 1968, 1971, 1975, so this limits how well we can date Imperial sewing machines here in Canada. If you have another source please let me know and I will research it. “Sewing machine” in French is “machine à coudre”, if you are searching.
