Poll Power

After having been working with WordPress for the last couple of weeks, I just thought, wait a minute, why not write about one of its various functions? I mean, I know the basic steps for publishing an article and making it look “nice” but there is so much more interesting stuff to explore. And I told myself that having a closer look at one of the fancy additional functions could certainly be useful at some point.

That is exactly when the Poll function caught my eye. I did not know much about it before but as I am interested in finding out about other people’s opinions, I wanted to give it a try. Continue reading

What happened to ORANGE PEELS?

Hey, gus! Every one knows a sole proprietorship – OOOP (Oranienburger Str. Orange Peel People) with “Mrs. Rövenstrunck as the sole owner”. And who was unlucky and missed the chance to get acquainted with this wonderful Company – don’t worry! – I am here to mention: “OOPP was the business of buying and selling dried orange peels” during the 1st Semester.

As we knew, Mrs. Rövenstrunck used to obtain her orange peels from Northern Fruit Wholesales (NFW), but her business was not doing so great and although Mrs. Rövenstrunck did introduce a new business line – orange peels with a slightly more yellowish look – the expectations were not that high. With 225 orange peels left in inventory, Mrs. Rövenstrunck took a decision to shut down OOOP business and open a …  Dental Clinic!!Being the sole operator at OOOP, Mrs. Rövenstrunck had a great experience behind and it was not new for her to open a new Business.
