Innovations are ideas, methods, or products that change the way people do things or approach a particular thought. The innovation that I chose to discuss is the blender. The blender was invented due to the popularity of malted drinks. During the early 1900’s doctors advocated malted drinks as a way to build strength.  The innovated […]

No Good Seed Goes Unpunished

For this blog assignment I decided to visit the St. Lawrence Farmers Market North side.
