F. Olivers

F. Olivers

Yesterday Elizabethe and I discovered F. Olivers in Canandaigua, New York.  Like Tubby Olive in Philadelphia, this place sells infused olive oils and balsamic vinegars.  This could be dangerous to one’s pocket book.

My favorite was a white balsamic infused with ginger.  It was like chinese food in a spoon.  Mix that with some sesame oil and you have a great topping for stir fried veggies or a dip for egg rolls.  As a result, I bought a bottle.

Wegmans vs BJ’s

I discovered BJ’s has some high-end cheeses.  They are priced much lower than Wegman’s.  As much as I love Wegman’s, I’ll be buying some of my cheeses at BJ’s from now on.

Spin Brush

At my dental checkup 6 months ago, the hygienist mentioned some bad calculus buildup.  Her advice, brush longer in that location.  To be honest, I don’t think that’s the problem.  I’m a thorough brusher.

So, I bought a spin brush and have been using it for last 6 months.  Because of the spin brush, those teeth feel cleaner.  Today was the proof.  She did less scraping, I had less bleeding, and no negative comments about my dental hygiene.

I’m not going back to a regular brush again.  I bought a 4 pack of spin brushes at BJ’s.


Aside from being picking about toothpaste, I have very thick mucus which mixes with saliva and creates a very slippery film in my mouth.  Some toothpastes don’t cut that slickness.  As a result, they don’t make my teeth feel clean.

I’ve also changed toothpastes (about 6 months ago).  So, between the two, my mouth doesn’t feel much cleaner than it did before I had my teeth cleaned today.  That tells my my new regiment is working better than the old.
