Let's say you are describing your friend. And you say:
Mr.B is our go to person. He gives/gave us advice every now and then.
I constructed a paragraph few months ago, and I used the past verb tense preceeding ''every now and then''. Furthermore, If I use ''gave'' here in this sentence, then it does not sound correct for me.(I'm not sure)
Do we put:
simple present tense+''every now then'' or
Past tense+''every now and then''
