Lots of people have been seeing a scarcity of fresh meats and produce because of the shipping problems caused by heavy sea ice. Our question for you: Does it alarm you that there's not much fresh food around when the boats are delayed? Ramona's guest is Gyspy Tea Room manager Grant Fowler. He's in a business that definitely feels the impact. Phone in with your thoughts.

Not to raise your blood pressure, but is this the worst year ever for potholes? Call in with Ramona's guest. Jonathan Galgay is a city councillor in St. John's, but as you know, potholes know no geographic bounds and can be found multiplying at super-sonic speeds throughout the province at this time of year. What are you experiencing? Call in!

A change of plans: We were going to talk about child care issues but the forecast means parents may be too busy rounding up youngsters today to call in. So we'll go ahead with that phone-in tomorrow.  Today another topic that affects a whole bunch of our listeners: Are you finding it almost impossible to find a contractor? Ramona's guests are Warrick Butler and Victoria Belbin of the Cdn Homebuilders' Association.  Phone in and tell us about your experiences!
