Choices Can Be Overwhelming

No insult intended to the fine folks at General Mills, but if fresh produce were like a box of Cheerios, there would be little need for ProduceOASIS. However, fresh produce doesn’t come off an assembly line, and that’s a big part of why I like this industry.

There is a lot of produce out there and lots of ways to tell if an item is ripe and countless preparation methods. Complicating matters further is that not everyone wants information delivered in exactly the same way. In fact, even the same person has different needs depending on the situation. Sometimes you’re busy & tired on the way home from work and just want a slightly different way to prepare that broccoli for dinner.

"We're hard at work getting Minecraft: PS3 Edition ready for testing just now. You can play plenty of social games in the internet today which you can take pleasure in. If you are able to count cards (which is a rare feat and one the casino's disapprove of, as you will be asked to leave, should the casino detect this), then it does make the process slightly different, as you need to count not only your cards, but the cards of the dealer and the other individuals playing.
