Avonhead Water quality and taste

Emma Luisa from Russley

Hi everyone,
Is your water tastes the same before chlorination? Our water from our tap tastes almost unbearable. It never tastes the same after chlorination introduced. Do you notice the difference? Or its just ours. Can I please hear your thoughts about your tap water?
Looking forward to hearing from you soon. Thanks

Supermarkets Again! LOYALTY CARDS

Michele from Avonhead

So these loyalty cards, I've yet to benefit from any of them so have stopped wasting my time with it, much to the surprise of the checkout operators.

These cards are to gather information about our individual shopping habits so that the supermarket can hit us up with 'deals' that fit our profiles. I prefer incognito shopping without a spy collecting my data and selling it off to the highest bidder!

How do you find them?
