A review of the Old Country Inn Restaurant

A review of the Old Country Inn restaurant

If you are seeking the perfect solution to enjoy some great European dining
for the holiday season; then why not give this long established restaurant a
try?

Introduction:
I have been to this restaurant several times over the last 10 years and I
have always enjoyed my visits; the food, the ambiance, and going there for
special occasions.

So how would I rate their services? With 1 being the lowest and 5 being the
highest, here are my ratings.
Service desk assistance – 5
Assistance for guests with special needs – 4
Assistance at restaurant – 4

Remarks :
Access to the restaurant was extremely user friendly for a vision impaired
person and navigating among the tables was not very difficult.
As a matter fact, there was a lot of space for persons to navigate.

About restaurantl staff:

My meals:
They have all been very sumptuous.
This restaurant specializes in Austrian and German cuisine and everything is
so well done.

Any suggestions?
Just that the menu could be expanded to include more items.

How to help delis become more aware

Hello everyone:
Each month I will be responding to a question; chosen from a pool of some of
the most commonly asked ones that I have been asked over the years and
continue to be asked.
This month, I’d like to answer the following question:
How to help delis become more aware

I hope that the tips given here for this month would be helpful given the
holiday season and I do believe that they will better enable delhis to serve
customers with special needs.

The trick here is to ensure that staff are made aware of the requirementss
of customers with special needs but to also ensure that they are
appropriately trained as to how to interact and communicate with them. So
here are a few tips to get ou started.

1. Make sure that there is enough space within your delhi for persons with
wheelchairs and walkers.
2. That your doorways are wide enough to accommodate these and if they are
not then to make it a priority to correct this soon.

3. That when a customer with special needs enters, that your staff speak
directly to them and not to anyone who may be accompanying them.

4. that your customer with a special need hears you speaking to them and
that they are made aware that you are speaking to them.

5. That your staff is always ready to render assistance when necessary;
example with helping to carry parcels, telling the customer what is being
sold, answering queries whenever it pertains to things being sold, and so
on.

6. Rendering assistance whenever it is sought.

This is a good start and his list can definitely be expanded.

_________________________

General tips
Courtesy of the research team at http://www.sterlingcreations.ca

Especially for the holidays:
It is better not to conduct your online transactions on an unsecured wi-fi.
Better to interact with those websites with the https rather than with
those that use the http.

Perfect Coffee Tips
What goes better with morning sweets than the perfect cup of Java? Here are
some helpful tips for better brewing:
Keep coffee in an air tight container and store in a cool, dark place. Try
the freezer! For best results, buy the whole beans and grind them yourself
just before use.
If you notice any traces of chlorine, iron, or other minerals in your water,
use a quality bottled or filtered water.
* Softened or distilled water will effect the flavor of the
coffee and should not be used.
It’s said the best water-to-coffee ratio is 1 tablespoon of ground coffee or
2 tablespoons of whole beans for each 6 ounces of water. You be the judge.
Note:
Boiling or reheating coffee literally boils away flavor.
A thermal carafe will keep the coffee hot for up to 2 hours without losing
any flavor.
The cream or sugar is a matter of preference so you’re on your own there.

What are some of the most painful spots for your dog?
The nose and the tail.
A tap on your dog’s nose could be very painful.
If you pull your dog’s tail you can also cause much pain to them.

Twitter and Facebook?
The mobile versions are more accessible and easier to navigate.

Flu season!
Please do not forget to wash your hands each time you return home.
Avoid touching your facial area with unwashed hands!

Okay, some vitamin tips:
Vitamin D is the perfect one to take during the winter months when the sun
shines least.
Be careful when taking calcium vitamins.
Too much of an intake and you could easily become constipated.

Articles of the day

Cleaning China
Tea stains can be removed safely from fine china by rubbing gently with a
cloth sprinkled with baking soda or salt.
China with gold borders needs special care when washing. Never use hot
water, only warm and don’t rub detergent on the gold areas.
To prevent your unbordered china plates from cracking when washing in hot
water, slide them into the water sideways. This will distribute the heat
evenly throughout the plate.
To avoid cracking, china dishes and bowls should always be warmed before
placing hot contents on them.
If your fine china plates have developed thin, spider cracks in them, place
them in a pan of warm milk for 30 minutes. The cracks should disappear!
To remove black cutlery marks from the glazed surface of your fine china
plates, apply some toothpaste to a clean soft cloth and rub the marks
gently.
Place paper doilies or napkins between stacked fine china plates to
eliminate scratching. The rubber rings from preserve jars also work well as
dividers between your china plates.
China cups shouldn’t be stacked on top of each other. They’ll chip that way.
Instead, suspend them from cup hooks under your cupboard shelf.
To check if china is flawed, hold the item in the palm of your hand and tap
it lightly with a pencil. Unflawed china will have a clear bell-like ring.
Flawed china will have a dull ring or no resonance at all.

+++++++++++++++

Cleaning Glassware
Always slip delicate glassware and crystal into hot water on its side. Place
a rubber mat on the bottom of your sink for extra protection against
cracking and chipping.
Vinegar cleans crystal beautifully. Wash in a mixture of 1 cup white vinegar
and 3 cups warm water. Allow to air-dry.
When two glasses are stuck together, fill the top glass with cold water and
submerge the bottom glass in hot water. Gently pull the top glass away.
When pouring a hot beverage into a glass, you can often prevent it from
cracking if you keep a silver spoon in the glass while pouring.
To remove burned remains from heat-resistant glass baking dishes, warm some
liquid dish soap and allow it to sit in the item for 30 minutes or so. Rinse
well with clean water.

Hotel rooms

As a regular traveler who is vision impaired, I believe that it is so
important for me to ensure that I am able to navigate my hotel room easily
and quickly. The one thing that I would say that it is helpful to know that
the majority of hotel rooms seem to be laid out in the same way and now it
is up to me to decide what I need to find and know.

First, to make sure that I locate wall outlets so that I can plug in my
iDevice and computer. Next, to find the close closet so that I can hang up
my clothes.

When I enter the bathroom, I make sure to locate the wash basin, towels,
toilet bowl, and bath tub and shower. I check out the various cosmetics on
the counter of the wash basin but nine out of 10 times it is not very easy
to decipher what is in each tube so I make use of the soap and bring my own
cosmetics along.

There are two other things that I make sure to do before settling in. The
first is to obtain the password for the hotel’s wi-fi and the other is to
ensure that I am able to decipher the number on the door of my room.

I usually put tape on the door of my room. This after I have asked the
porter to tell me how many doors I am away from the elevator and then I put
masking tape on the door just above the handle.

I recently bought a set of luggage locator tags and I plan on using one of
these to hang on the inside handle of my door when next I travel.

I’m Donna J. Jodhan enjoying my travels.

This month in Let’s Talk Tips:

***********************
#Technology
***********************

1.) VR Roller Skates
Do you want to really, physically walk around in virtual reality? Is an
omnidirectional treadmill too bulky for your taste? A giant hamster ball too
confining? Redirected walking too trippy? An empty warehouse too expensive?
If so, we’ve got good news: Google is trying to patent a design for VR
roller skates.
http://bit.ly/2RacCE0

2.) Your Time on Facebook
Fifteen weeks after Facebook announced its “Your Time on Facebook” tool that
counts how many minutes you spend on the app, the feature is finally rolling
out around the world. Designed to help you manage your social networking,
the dashboard reveals how many minutes you’ve spent on Facebook’s app on
that device each day for the past week and on average.
https://tcrn.ch/2r3t7WY

3.) LockedIn
LinkedIn has cut off email address exports with a new privacy setting. A win
for privacy on LinkedIn could be a big loss for businesses, recruiters and
anyone else expecting to be able to export the email addresses of their
connections. LinkedIn just quietly introduced a new privacy setting that
defaults to blocking other users from exporting your email address.
https://tcrn.ch/2DCJdhQ

4.) How to Get Air Quality Info on iPhone with Weather
The iPhone Weather app can offer information about the air quality at
specific locations, including an Air Quality summary and an Air Quality
Index score rating.
http://bit.ly/2TD49en

5.) Emoji8: Microsoft App Rates Your Expressions Against Emojis
Microsoft has launched a free Windows app that uses machine learning to
guess the facial expression you’re making when imitating an emoji. Called
Emoji8, the app gives you a score for how well you recreate the emoji, and
it’s mostly meant to show off the capabilities of this brand of artificial
intelligence in an accessible way.
http://bit.ly/2S7HRjq

***********************
#Nutrition
***********************

1.) Do You Like It Hot?
Weight loss is a topic which comes with a wealth of different kinds of
advice. When choosing a diet plan, it really comes down to which type works
the best for your body and lifestyle – but if you’re looking to slim down
quickly, incorporating this type of food could mean you see results sooner.
http://bit.ly/2TE2kxC

2.) Diwali Weight Loss Tips
Six smart ways to prevent belly fat and look gorgeous during the festive
season.

3.) What Do Marathon Runners Really Eat?
The winner of last year’s New York City Marathon, Shalane Flanagan, will be
running again in 2018. Here’s how she fuels up for a race.

4.) 7 Healthy Eating Tips To Fuel Your Workout
Have you ever laced up your running shoes only to realize you’re hungry?
What do you grab to eat – if anything? Your body needs fuel to exercise, but
not all foods will benefit you. Try these healthy eating tips to help you
power through your workouts.
http://bit.ly/2DEReD3

5.) Is it True You Don’t Have To Train Like An Athlete To Stay Fit?
You might think losing weight is all about hard work at the gym and
following a strict diet. Exercise is clearly good for our bodies – but you
don’t have to train like an athlete to stay fit. Sometimes, even the
smallest amount of effort can deliver major pay-offs.
http://bit.ly/2DVtFa9

***********************
#Media
***********************

1.) Apple’s New Holiday Ad Is Absolutely Heartwarming
Apple’s holiday commercials are an annual tradition, designed to evoke the
strongest of emotions in those who watch the lengthy ads play out. This
year’s commercial manages to accomplish that feat, but it looks a little
different: it’s fully animated.
http://bit.ly/2KwqlCU

2.) LinkedIn Looks To Be Testing Reactions and Stories
LinkedIn looks to be testing its own versions of Reactions and Stories.
Although these tests have not yet been confirmed by LinkedIn, they have been
spotted in some form of testing. That means they could be for real, or they
could be a limited test – meaning, basically, that they might never see the
light of day.
http://bit.ly/2AeX4aZ

3.) Switch Between Two Different Twitter Timelines
What’s it going to be for you, ‘top tweets’ or the new reverse chronological
order timeline? After teasing us with the news last month, Twitter is
finally giving users the ability to choose.
http://bit.ly/2DHdgoV

4.) TikTok Surges Past 6M Downloads in the US
TikTok is one of the world’s most popular apps, recently surpassing 6
million users last month in the US and landing in the top spot on Apple’s
App Store in the United States. Now, more celebrities are joining the app,
which allows people to upload their own videos using a variety of editing
tools and filters. Jimmy Fallon and Tony Hawk have both recently joined,
using the app to participate in current trends and try to connect with a
larger audience.
http://bit.ly/2r0VFAJ

5.) Google Employee Challenges The Wording of Google’s Internal Process for
Granting Disability Accommodation And Wins
When Google changed the wording of its internal process for granting
disability accommodation late last week, employee Cathy Fitzpatrick took it
as proof that you can effect change by speaking out.

1.) The Kids Are Coming. Winning The Generation Game
Home care providers are failing to effectively engage with intergenerational
markets, an industry conference has heard.

2.) Website Security Tips for Marketers
Today we are going to discuss some practical security tips that marketers
can put into practice.
http://bit.ly/2DJwcDx

3.) Bucking the Geezer Stereotype
The concept of developing one’s personal brand to stand out and succeed in
the marketplace is a recent phenomenon that classic baby boomers often find
repugnant. Shouldn’t doing your job well all these years be enough?
http://bit.ly/2FGlcJt

4.) 8 Tips To Protect Your Small Business Against Cybercrime
The forecast is bleak for companies of any size. This is particularly true
for small businesses that often don’t have enough IT security and protection
to diminish or block the attacks.

5.) Current Cyber Security Tips To Ensure Your Business Is Safe
Cyber security is a huge threat to people and businesses all over the world,
especially in the USA. With that in mind, this article touches on a few
different cyber security tips to make sure your business and yourself stay
safe and avoid potential disaster.
http://bit.ly/2RaMzg4

***********************
#Advocacy
***********************

1.) People With Disabilities Face Significant Barriers in Education System
Ontario’s education system needs to modernize its approach to supporting
disabled students at every age level and do more to eliminate persistent
barriers they face in school, the province’s human rights commission said in
a statement.
http://bit.ly/2Ad42x8

2.) Blind Marylanders Sue Walmart, Saying Self-Serve Checkouts Violate ADA
Three blind Maryland residents and the National Federation of the Blind are
suing Walmart, alleging that the company violates the Americans with
Disabilities Act because its self-checkout kiosks are not fully accessible
to blind customers.
https://bsun.md/2DF4bwG

3.) Wegmans Adds a ‘Game-Changer’ for Visually Impaired Shopping (Video)
Grocery shopping can very stressful. Navigating crowded aisles in a store
full of people is frustrating, but if you’re blind, like Kim Charlson, then
grocery shopping can be almost impossible. A new tool, however, could
revolutionize shopping for people who can’t see. It’s an app that helps the
visually impaired navigate the world and does it using the eyes in your
smartphone.
http://bit.ly/2KtXWgp

4.) Losing Touch. Finding Intimacy
I had come to believe I was unable to break through my physical disability.
I was wrong.

A review of the School fine dining restaurant – a great holiday hang out

A review of the School fine dining restaurant

If you are in the mood for some very fine dining and are in the Unionville
area, then this restaurant is a must visit for you.
The perfect restaurant to kick off the holidays!
Please read on.

Introduction:
In September 2017 I had the privilege and pleasure of having dinner at this
fine dining restaurant as we celebrated a special birthday for my mom. I
was not disappointed and neither me, my family, nor most of all my mom were
disappointed.

So how would I rate their services? With 1 being the lowest and 5 being the
highest, here are my ratings.
Service desk assistance – 5
Assistance for guests with special needs – 5
Assistance at restaurant – 5

Remarks :
Access to the restaurant was extremely user friendly for a vision impaired
person and navigating among the tables was not very difficult.
There was enough space for me to get by and elbow room was great.

About restaurant staff:
They were extremely helpful, accommodating, and engaging.

My meal:
Nothing but excellent.

Any suggestions?
I am afraid that I have none to offer. Just that the piano player could
have started playing a wee bit earlier.

Contact info:
This restaurant is located on 14th Avenue in Unionville.

How to help renovators become more aware – how you can increase your revenues

Hello everyone:
Each month I will be responding to a question; chosen from a pool of some of
the most commonly asked ones that I have been asked over the years and
continue to be asked.
This month, I’d like to answer the following question:
How to help renovators become more aware

There is never any shortage of suggestions for helping renovators to become
more aware of things that they can do in order to make homes more usable and
accessible. I have a few suggestions to help get you started.

1. Make sure that counter tops in your kitchen and bathroom are easily
reachable by those in wheelchairs and that counters are not made too wide.

2. Place handles and knobs in positions that are easy to reach; especially
