    Good morning/evening Vagabonds.

    I wanted to tell you about my experience with “World Famous Carlo’s Bakery” (that’s what it says on the box anyway). I ordered one of their crumb cakes online because they talked so much about how good it was on the “Cake Boss” TV show. Big mistake. It was tasteless, very dry, and super expensive. We tried warming it up per the instructions on the website, and it turned to tasteless paste. To top that off, they have no way to give feedback on their website so I can’t even let them know how bad it was. We ended up throwing away 3/4 of it as inedible.
    The place is expanding rapidly because of the popularity of the show. If this is an example of their product, they won’t be in business for very long after the show ends.

    Happy New Year, Vagabonds!

    I just finished reading all 712 pages of Marek Halter’s “The Book of Abraham.” (the aditional pages are definitions of Jewish, Muslim and Medieval words). I’m thinking of writing a book review for “Branches,” the Greater Miami Jewish Genealogicaal Society newsletter. Although the book a lot of genealogical poetic license, it may be a good book for the society’s library.

    This comment is not about your cake experience as I have never seen the show. It is about TV advertising in general. Not too many items live up to the hype that you see and what they cost, plus the shipping. If we are interested in something we just wait awhile and it will soon appear at CVS or someother store at half the price. Been there, done that.

    Good Morning, Everyone,

    Sorry you got taken, Jan. But, I’m glad you gave us the warning. Never watched the show, but, it helps to know what NOT to order! If you ordered it with a credit card, can they go to bat for you for a refund?

    Morning, Village.
    I’m late this morning because we’re in Sherman, Texas, visiting relatives. They don’t have internet where they live so I had to wait till I got to a public place to go on line. Anyway,
    WhooHooo! Toot Toot Honk! Wheeeeee!

    Good morning (barely) Vagabonds.
    Remember, there is no real cure for a hangover, just ways to make it a little bit easier to handle. “Hair of the Dog” is actually a new beginning for the next hangover.

    Not that I think any of us are prone to such a problem. :-))

    Happy New Year, Vagabonds.
    Woodworker: Whenever I see something that looks good on an infomercial, I go online and look up some of the customer reviews. Almost invariably people will say how the product doesn’t work or how bad the customer service was for the company. There was even one whose website was so confusing and misleading that people ended up paying over $100 for something that was advertised as $10 plus s&h, with no way of reviewing the order before actually placing it and no way of cancelling once it was placed. And you are right. If it is a good product, it will eventually show up in Fry’s, CVS or one of those “as seen on TV” stores.
