Let's hope that more counties will follow this great example! #FoodWaste  
France has become the first country in the world to ban supermarkets from throwing away or destroying unsold food, forcing them instead to donate it to charities and food banks.

+Marie-Thérèse Norris Wish that someone would see its beauty AND value. Like to sell off all my items... But this indeed is very exceptional and I will no longer be able to bring such pieces home. Less travel and with all the restrictions, what can you bring? Shipping is also such an expense nowadays. Enjoy your weekend and stay cozy!

On June 4 of 2015 we had the privilege to spend the night here in Livonia. Staying in any Hyatt Place is like coming home. Friendly and courteous staff, nice and clean room with the comfy Hyatt Grand Bed® makes for optimum rest. Great breakfast and yes, as always the requested high floor for our Platinum Hyatt Card. WiFi is super fast! One cannot go wrong with Hyatt. Mariette's Back to Basics

On our stay in Arizona for 6 days, we did shop at Costco on March 24 of 2015, and also stopped by at the Hearing Center. Previously on March 5, 2015 we did visit the Costco Hearing Center at Peachtree Dunwoody Rd, in Atlanta, GA where I could not get my husband's right hearing aid repaired. The reason was, she said, the hearing aid was too old (5 yrs) and there were no spare parts anymore so my husband ought to buy a new set. Now with the very same hearing aid, we got offered a very swift and courteous repair; on the spot, by Ms. Robin. No questions asked, very professional and with a gracious smile. It took her only a couple of minutes and we were told there is no charge. What a difference such outstanding service makes within one and the same company but two different states!

When I did make the reservations over the phone, via Delta, which would yield me a 25% discount I was told, the rental fee for 6 days totaled US $ 210.95. This was sent to me as an email: National Car Rental Reservation Confirmation 255809498 for Phx Sky Harbor Intl Arpt. However when I did return said car at the Phoenix Sky Harbor Int. Airport; the total was US $ 569.61! Okay, we added a GPS which was $ 69.65. The promised 25% discount over the phone, that had changed into a mere 10%... Your employee (Mr. Ray), at the counter, was very pushy for changing me into renting a BIGGER, in his words ‘more powerful car’ and thus sidetracking us completely from the total rental car agreement. He never ever explained anything about the LDW benefits as such, but kind of hurried us through, for getting my initials on paper. Not very customer friendly! The car was perfect, clean and in top condition. As former business Consultants, we have known better representatives at the rental desk from different companies!

As always, Hyatt Place is such a great way for ending any travel day; being home away from home. We did visit the Hoover Dam Bypass and this was so convenient to reach. No complains whatsoever!

We had booked on line for the complete package of Grand Canyon Railway Hotel for 2 nights, with breakfast and dinner, riding the Grand Canyon Railway Northbound, getting onto the South Rim Motorcoach and back by Grand Canyon Railway Southbound! That is the best we could have done! You can read by using copy & paste: {1881 Williams, Arizona - Gateway to Grand Canyon & Wild West}: {Riding the Grand Canyon Railway}: {Grand Canyon South Rim Motorcoach Tour}: Hope this will be usefull to others that plan to visit this great hotel and ride the train and motorcoach. We did drive to the Grand Canyon after those two nights and stayed at Maswik Lodge for another two nights for being able to do some hiking and further exploring. Unforgettable time and highly recommended to do it this way; most economical and most relaxed! Thanks for delivering excellence.

We were fortunate for having received a display model 30" Miele Convection Food Warming Drawer with dual heating system in December of 2008. Every home should install one; works great for any dinner party you want to throw. Doing the work ahead of time and having your kitchen tidy and spending time with your guests. You can read my blog post in which a photo of it is mentioned. Just put in the search box at the top: Our Staircase Area and scroll down to it. I highly can recommend this company! Mariette
