My Guilty (Secretive) TV Pleasure

I have recently been spending time with a new friend, a fellow mom.  We are just getting to know each other so we are slowly learning what we’re all about.  I asked her the other day if there are any shows she watches on TV that she doesn’t mention because they may embarrass her.  She looked at me with a sideways, confused look.  I giggled as I realized what my question sounded like.  The truth is, I just wanted to know if she too watched the Bachelorette.

Yes, my guilty, secretive pleasure is reality television and more specifically, these days, The Bachelorette.  Emily has been, in my opinion, the best bachelorette ever.  Yes, our proudly Canadian Jillian was brilliant during her season.  She has been one of the few Canadians featured in the Bachelor/Bachelorette that makes us proud.

Tassimo Recall

With 900,000 machines in Canada, it is frightening to consider the scalding that can occur from the Tassimo bursting and spraying hot water all over. 

According to The Star, 18 Canadians including a two year old have been scalded by water bursting and spraying out of the machine spontaneously causing burns.  I cannot imagine how devastating it would be for the parent of the little todder.

If you have a Tassimo, be sure to contact or call their hotline 1-866-918-8763 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday, or between 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. ET Saturdays.
