My Stomach Thanks You

March 6th, 2011

I received another donation from a user that was not monetary, but delicious.  Pam in Vancouver sent a bag of near-homemade granola after helping me fix a bug in Nutrition Facts.  It was great stuff!  Interestingly, there was no oatmeal, which I thought was a staple in granola.  Pam obviously knows what she’s doing as the granola was excellent.  I have included some pictures and included a link to her website.

She ships the granola to anywhere in the world, as long it’s Canada.  Sorry, everyone else.  You will have to move to enjoy it.

Thanks for your help Pam, and thanks for feeding us!

Unusual Donation from Down Under

March 6th, 2011

AustralianWildlifeWith the issues users were having with Nutrition Facts on certain versions of Windows 7, I needed some help isolating the problem. Gerry from Australia was one of the first users to incur the problems and report them. He also help test some intermediate versions to ensure they worked on his version of Windows.

Once we had a working version on Windows 7 (only thanks to Gerry’s patience and help), he kindly asked if he could send a donation. I said he is welcome to, that it’s fully up to him. He then asked if I had kids, and suggested he send a gift to the kids.  Great idea i thought, since all donations to this point have been monetary.

A few weeks later we had a package arrive from Australia. My kids were rather tickled by receiving a package from across the globe and quickly tore into it. It was 2 books on Australian wildlife and a Calendar. I have posted pictures in this post. Thanks for the gift Gerry and thanks for all the assistance!
