food: I WENT TO THE POMONA FAIR - 09/05/14 06:04 PM
This is not my first time and I know what to expect when I do go. Be prepared to spend your hard earned money and I mean at shocking prices too. The allure of this place certainly dominates the value received. $10 for a turkey leg. A decent sized ice cream or dessert, corn on the cob, BBQ, or any type of food is somehow five to ten times the price?
THE KID SIZE
I went to buy my first goody. It was an Italian ice which is simply delicious and if you add it to a hot day and the sights and sounds, it even … (7 comments)

food: DOESNT SPEAK ENGLISH and HAS AN ATTITUDE? - 09/05/14 11:27 AM
Work on one of these right away. Work on both when you get the chance. This has nothing to do with my opinion but more instead about quality of life, success and well-being. I actually ran into someone who was selling some very nice eatable most delicious product the other day. Some lady was asking a bunch of questions before me and stopped rather abruptly. I just took that for my turn and began my questions. I then found out why she stopped
ATTITUDE & NO ENGLISH APPEARS!
We were both not getting any answers and furthermore, the part that makes … (4 comments)

food: WE MAKE LOUSY GODS THE CANE TOAD STORY - 08/17/14 04:11 PM
In Australia, Sugar Cane farmers were being plagued by an insect in its larvae stage that not only attacked the Cane crop, but did it in such a way that required some action or whole fields of crops would be lost. You see the insect, while in its larvae stage, tunnels into the root of the Sugar Cane and just stays there feeding. THINK; It creates a stoppage/blockage blocking the coming and going of much needed fluids, nutrients and nourishment from the soil to the Sugar Cane
PROBLEM/SOLUTION?
Ingenious on the part of the insect. So, what eats insects that could survive in Australia and … (2 comments)

food: WHAT KNOCKS ON DOORS & WONT TAKE A NO FOR AN ANSWER - 08/12/14 12:08 PM
Jehovah Witness? NO...Real Estate agent? NO again. Aluminum siding salesmen? NO.  How about it is Colonel Sanders? YES. That is what this guy did when he was just getting started with his business. His dream was perfected in his mind and now to add LEGS to it (chicken legs?) and the rest is history but the details are not known. This guy would knock on your door with his pots, pans, ice chest, and carry-all and offer to cook YOU a chicken dinner
WAS IT FINGER LICKING GOOD?
He only needed your kitchen and he would clean up after himself to boot. All … (21 comments)

food: I TOOK A LICKIN FROM CHICKIN LICKIN - 07/22/14 01:27 PM
Decades ago, when I was raising a family and my wife worked nights while I worked days and we both took turns baby sitting our little lovelies, we had moved into a beautiful rental in a great neighborhood that the company I worked for owned. That is when it started for me. The gradual decline of my expert health and shape into that of a happy over stuffed thanksgiving turkey. I am not blaming anyone
IT CAME FROM AROUND THE CORNER
Right around the corner, walking distance, was a place called "Chickin Lickin". One day, I decided to investigate this and pulled in. Very impressive … (6 comments)

food: MAKING ENDS MEET IS MAKING THE ROUNDS - 03/24/14 07:05 AM
I remember years ago when welfare payments met or exceeded the minimum wage. So naturally many did the math and word of mouth quickly spread to get on welfare and quit your meaningless job. Today, that doesn't hold up as welfare is discouraged and is not enough to live on
MINIMUM LIFE
Minimum wage works for those that need some spending money. It doesn't hold well for anyone trying to make a living, get ahead or build wealth. Raising the minimum wage will take some of the subsidy burden off the government, but doesn't do much for the future of anyone that is on it

food: FRESHEST FRUIT AND VEGETABLES NOTHING LIKE IT - 05/29/13 05:58 AM
Unless you have done this, you do not know what you are missing. Sure, as little kids, we all thought MILK came from the market. Cows...? What do cows have to do with it?  When I mention fruit, oh, that's in the produce section. It is only there if someone took the time to put it there. Fruit tastes different when allowed to ripen until picked
I visiteda friend up in Oregon who owned a few acres here and there. We were sitting in his home and he brings out a huge bowl of fruit. They were all washed and of … (4 comments)

food: EATING IS A DOUBLE EDGED SWORD - 05/23/13 06:03 AM
Very often, you may find yourself standing in front of the refrigerator right after eating....What are you looking for if you just ate? Something is missing and food will not satisfy it. You keep trying to feed it so it will stop pestering you. You find out through trial and error that it doesn't go away......and then you eat again and again
WARNING: I am going to be discussing something that some people may find sensitive. It is not my intent to single anyone out, make fun of them, or judge them. This post......is submitted for our benefit......

food: THREE LEGS OF THE RESTAURANT STOOL - 04/29/13 09:56 AM
You don't need to know much about the restaurant industry to understand the three-legged stool upon which it sits...Wherever you go, the dynamics of Service, Food and Ambiance are at work.... When all three line up, it can be a very pleasant experience. Lining up all three is not necessary to have a pleasant experience either....

There are places that are known for being "best" at their food. It can be a little old oyster shack on a back road, a hamburger dive in an auto parts junkyard or a place known for its fresh, gigantic steak fries..the attraction being … (2 comments)

food: RICHIE'S SNOW CONES HOT DOGS & DRINKS - 04/15/13 03:24 PM
In between times, I used to sell hot dogs, snow cones and drinks from a little cart that I would drive around town. I had my favorite spots and they expected me daily. I also used to do special occasions and the YMCA was a favorite stop. The kids love it and looked forward to having their hot dog with whatever they wanted on it, a snow cone, bag of chips or a drink

NONE BETTER COULD BE HAD ANYWHERE
I prided myself on carrying the best meats, sausages and breads. But I didn't stop there. I had the freshest … (14 comments)

food: SHOPPING FOR FOOD OVER THE DECADES - 01/28/13 03:04 PM
When I was a kid, I had no awareness where food came from nor did I care. A peanut butter sandwich was considered one heck of a reward followed by a bologna and cheese with mustard, hot dogs and any hostess product you could find. To me it was a simple thing to eat. As you get older and as products and information surface, it becomes more work to shop
CANNED FOOD
When I got my first paycheck which was around 16 working for McDonald's, I went out shopping and bought anything in a can that looked good. I was single … (8 comments)

food: SUPERMARKETS ARE WELL RUN BUSINESSES part 2 - 01/08/13 06:57 AM
In part one, we explored the supermarket and great effort is put into the word super as it is a well polished and presented place to shop with lots of dynamics going on. Here you will see how billions of revenue are generated and it is a living business plan that works..
THE MARKETS THEMSELVES WOKE-UP ONE DAY
The markets themselves woke up one day and discovered a gold mine right under their own noses. Billions were being spent by others to promote their products and were successful. Markets decide to copy the coloring, packaging and positioning of the other products … (12 comments)

food: SUPERMARKETS ARE WELL RUN BUSINESSES part 1 - 01/08/13 06:56 AM
Next time you visit the neighborhood market, take a moment to see how it is set-up. It is a business first and there is a reason and a rhyme to all that goes on inside those four walls. First off, everything that one needs called the basics are found on the outside walls themselves. Produce, baked goods, dairy and meats all line the walls. In the center are more the optional items

The place is set-up to either help you find what you want or to the delight of all concerned, cause you to shop. They want … (2 comments)

food: ROAST CHICKEN IS ALWAYS POPULAR - 01/03/13 03:50 PM
Well it is not so good news for any chickens, but roast chicken lovers are satisfied with this tasty reliable dish which has been around since Adam started eating meats and Eve started doing the desserts (apple pie).  It is important to eat a balanced meal when you can. I like a full plate of which I demonstrate very well pictured below...
AHHHH...YES
BELOW: Roasted juicy 1/2 a chicken seasoned, salted and peppered. Those are fresh onion bagels lightly toasted. Brussels sprouts cooked whole with a little crunch to them. The sauce is an exciting little item I found that is quite good. It … (6 comments)

food: IF YOU HAD TO EAT ONE FOOD FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE - 11/13/12 06:34 AM
What would it be? For clarity sake, I am asking the following: If you had to eat just one thing over and over again for the rest of your life, and that item never changed, what would it be? Think carefully here. One food until you die. Would you go for taste, health, convenience, fun, function, pleasure or sustenance..One food...but which one?
HERE WE GO
Rice was given as one answer. In certain parts of the world, they are doing that already. It is not far fetched and rice has benefits as well as making you feel full too. Easy to cook, eat and digest.

food: RUNNING A RESTAURANT AND NOT GAINING WEIGHT WHEW! - 07/30/12 06:55 AM
I was in the restaurant business for several years running corporate and private operations. All served good decent food and had talented people in the kitchen. As general manager or owner of an operation, you get to have anything you want whenever you want. Let me tell you that being around fresh, delicious foods that smell good all day long and watching others eat is.....

food: BEST FOOD PART OF THE SUMMER - 06/30/12 01:37 PM
Where does one begin to list all the things that summer introduces? There is so much to participate in and enjoy. I will narrow down this most pleasant thought to a specific subject of which everyone who reads this is familiar with but does not do enough of. It is most enjoyable, beneficial, produces well being, is fun, inexpensive and keeps ya coming back
UM-MM YUM..WATERMELON

food: A GOOD STEAK MAY NOT BE A GOOD STEAK - 06/26/12 06:40 AM
I like a good steak. I like the sides that go with it. If you flame broil the meat, there is nothing like it for smell, taste and satisfying the appetite. I say all that to say this. I have been watching some Food documentaries on Netflix lately and from what I have seen, it has turned off my desire for that blessed steak event described above

food: FOODS THAT BRING BACK CHILDHOOD MEMORIES - 04/15/12 02:57 PM
When we were growing up, we paid special attention to certain foods that satisfied us not only in the moment, but in the years to come and well into our adulthood. So enjoyable were they they we passed them on to our children too. What were these foods? Why do we enjoy them so much and what is your favorite?
LET US BEGIN WITH THE MAIN COURSE
1. Bologna & cheese sandwiches with or without mustard, mayo or spread. If you used WONDER BREAD, give your self 10 extra points. No finer school lunch ever existed. Add Frito's chips and thank you
