What were your best and worst consumer experiences this week?
September 18, 2010
Here are my best and worst consumer experiences this week:
My best: Kale from my garden
It’s been raining here heavily, but the kale in my garden is still looking good.I cut the first batch today, and I’m making Turkey Soup with it and other vegetables.
I also picked my last bunch of green beans. I love them. They remind me of my mother’s gardens and cooking.
The carrots also look great. I’ll keep eating them until the first frost. I dug up one potato plant. It produced three potatoes: large, medium, and small. They’ll go in the stew, too.
Then there are the green tomatoes. I’ll be looking for recipes again this fall to use them.
My worst: Paying another attorney’s bill for my defective roof case
I’ve written before – not once, but two, three, four times – about the problems I’m having with my Custom-Bilt vail metal shingle roof.
When the first roof was installed, it leaked due to a manufacturing defect. The replacement roof leaked in the same way. However, Custom-Bilt isn’t willing to stand behind its product.
The contractor, Edwards Exteriors, also didn’t a good installing either roof.
We’re headed to arbitration soon. I’ll be glad when it’s over, and I can have my new roof installed. The lawsuit is stressful and hard on my bank account.
I know you learned a lesson from that bad experience!.. My best experience this week was on monday!..I was able to meet my college friends and we were happy reminiscing our college life.

Oh my, what a lush kale garden! It would be nice for soup come the rainy days. So sorry to hear about your roofing problem. I hope it's solved by now; leakages are such a headache!

Really the kale in your garden is looking good. You seriously can say this as your good experience but I have this week similar experience but it was bad. There was something too bad happened to my garden.
