    Felicia Fisher’s Slice of Life: Ice cream makerless strawberry ice cream

    I’ve concluded that the lack of decent customer service in today’s world is, in effect, a lack of integrity. Entry level employees simply do not care if they’re doing their job well and this became apparent to me on several occasions this week including snide comments by a cashier coupled with the failure of a customer service representative to follow up with a telephone call as promised leaving me to wonder if my mixer parts will ever be delivered.

Athanasius was credited as the author for many years because he was a staunch defender of the divinity of Jesus Christ and of the Trinity.
