“A READER WRITES: “Watch your credit card transactions closely!”

“I was surprised and shocked to get an additional $116.17 on my TD Visa this month. I used it on Dec 3rd as a physical purchase & Dec 9th to Rogers Paygo. I looked the address of REALGOLDSOFT BAKU up on the internet. It is a virus program that pops up on your screen and won’t go away until you buy the program. I never had the pop up or bought the program and neither did anyone else in the house.I called TD Visa and the representative said he was familiar with the “company” and had previously tried to contact them. They are in Asia and he named the place.Rogers said their site is secure. Bottom line is they got my credit card information from the net from the last transaction as this card isn’t the one I usually use. .There is nothing anyone can do because of international laws. I got a temporary credit to my Visa, but in reality the credit I received is coming off the backs of those who use TD banking.

“CLOVERMEAD HOPES CONTENTED BUZZ OF SNORING BEES WILL TAKE STING OUT OF LIGHTER HONEY CROP LAST YEAR!”

(Chris Heimstra of Clovermead provided this info on last summer’s honey crop in response to an AylmerNews inquiry)

Aylmer – “This past year’s honey season was smaller with the cooler weather and regular rain showers.  The bees will usually do much better in the dry summers when people are watering their brown lawns, and when the farmers are in church praying for rain.  Stressed out plants have flowers with more nectar in them, it is the opposite from what you would expect.  The smaller than normal crop was interesting because we had more bee hives than ever, the hives were in really good shape and ready to produce a honey crop but the conditions did not shape up.  I tell myself that this coming summer will be the bumper crop year!  The bees went into winter in good condition, and we expect that they will come through well, it is always the last two months that make a huge difference March and April. Our honey crop may be down, but we have experienced incredible support from the community with many locals buying local and supporting our family business.

I peeked in a couple of hives this afternoon, and took some photos. You can see we wrap the hives with a black insulated wrap, and we put an insulated pillow on top of the frames, so they should be snug as a bug.   The bees huddle and shiver together inside and count days till spring. ”
