Web Sites (mine or others)

Balsamic Blasphemy

Submitted by Miss Danielle on Mon, 03/10/2008 - 9:52am.

The Internet is a dangerous source of information. You could be getting complex financial advice on stocks and investments from Ted who actually plucks chickens for a living (not that there's anything wrong with that, but chances are, Ted doesn't have a background in finance and hasn't bought a stock in his life). And unfortunately, you wouldn't have any idea because Ted's comments are presented well on a website.


Toronto Gluten Free Restaurant Guide

Submitted by Miss Danielle on Fri, 08/24/2007 - 10:28am.

Just thought I would share this. For anyone living or visiting the Toronto area, here's a link to someone's list of Gluten-Free Friendly Restaurant choices. They talk about each choice and why it made the list. It isn't a perfect list, but at least it gives you a place to start and informs you of places that may not be promoted as gluten free, but are able (or willing) to make substitutes.

And just as a side note, there is another Magic Oven located on Danforth Ave, east of Logan Ave I believe.


Can you see the difference?

So, the website has been updated and reorganized. Some styling needs to be done, and a few more searchable listings added, but at least it's here.

  • Now you can add comments without signing in
  • You can search links by topic; search article and tips by type; and soon, you will be able to do the same with blogs.
  • The recipes are easier to navigate



Website Construction

Submitted by Miss Danielle on Mon, 05/14/2007 - 2:05pm.

Summer is here. That means road construction. It also means website construction!

Can't Eat It will be undergoing a facelift. Same banners and such, but the display of content will change as we upgrade the site's content management system.

So, in the meantime, feel free to keep emailing me but be sure to write "Cant Eat It" in the title so I know chances are it isn't spam.


Ah Stress

Submitted by Miss Danielle on Sun, 10/22/2006 - 12:15am.

I didn't even bother checking when my last post was. I can't bare to peek. I'm surprised my website is even speaking to me. But even if it wasn't, you are. I continue to receive emails from people who find the site useful, and that is wonderful. I've done my best to respond to all of them, but if I've missed anyone, please forgive me and know that your email was appreciated.


A Word on Creation (Not God, but Websites)

Submitted by Miss Danielle on Sun, 01/29/2006 - 9:53am.

This website was created using Drupal, and I get a lot of traffic from their website. I also get emails now and then about who designed my site and how I manage it, etc. Recently I received one from somebody checking the references of the web developer that built my site for me. Problem was, I had never even HEARD of the company he was asking about. So a word of caution out there to anyone hiring a web developer: ALWAYS follow up and check their references.

Who developed my website? The fabulous Be Circle. I have a link to their site at the bottom left corner of my page.


Thank you

Submitted by Miss Danielle on Tue, 11/15/2005 - 3:56pm.

Even though I have been silent on the website over the last few months, I still checked my emails. I would like to make a public thank you to those who have emailed me and told me that this site has been helpful in your journey while you try to track down information. It makes all the work worthwhile :)

And remember: even if I am not posting, I am still lurking so feel free to leave me a note.


Information on the Internet

Submitted by Miss Danielle on Thu, 04/28/2005 - 11:49am.

My rant for the day:

All good information on the internet should be free.


I don't care what it's about. Health, taxes, real estate listings, basic website templates, whatever. It should be free and accessible.

Yes, getting people to sign in to your site is fine. It helps to keep out spam and bots and all those annoying web nasties. But I should be able to access the INFO for free.


Specialists Not So Special

Submitted by Miss Danielle on Sat, 04/23/2005 - 3:00pm.

We wait months sometimes to see a specialist. Meanwhile, we get more sick and feel more isolated. Finally the day comes when we get to see the person who knows how to help us. And what often happens?

They rush you through your symptoms, give you little feedback, treat you like you are making things up, dismiss what you think is important and end up handing you a prescription as they shuffle you out of the office.

Great. The most I learned during my visit was a nice recipe for braised beef that I read about in a magazine out in the waiting room.


Opening Day: A Blog About the Launch of This Website

Submitted by Miss Danielle on Thu, 04/21/2005 - 4:53pm.

Have you ever spent a lot of time planning for a party? You sit down and brainstorm menu ideas, buy decorations that take forever to put up, make food, even think of topics of interest to stir up conversation in case the room goes silent. Making a website is similar.

I've spent a good month planning and putting together this website. I went out and found the best links I could, I tried to make sure I had "something for everyone", I sweated over the details of code, and tried to create a welcoming atmosphere. Then I "sent out the invitations" by telling people it exists.
