Random thoughts for October 10!

Jerry the Berry signs yet another great law in California!

bloodCalifornia’s governor, Jerry Brown, on Friday signed a law that lowers the penalty for exposing partners to HIV from a felony to a misdemeanor, which includes those who donate blood without informing the center about their HIV status.

“Today California took a major step toward treating HIV as a public health issue, instead of treating people living with HIV as criminals,” Sen. Scott Wiener, D.- San Francisco, told The Los Angeles Times.

My question is what sort of slack-jawed, knuckle dragging hairball, living in California actually thinks this would be a step forward? And, do you think anyone who is even partially sane is going to get a blood transfusion in the great snowflake state now? Not me baby!

Food trucks needed!

Food-truck-1-56a7f5ff3df78cf7729b1e19When I attended college, every evening my dorm saw various and sundry food trucks pull up full of all sorts of tasty treats. I really loved those trucks.

Fast forward to the here and now and I think it’s time to get these purveyors of culinary delights back at any an all events, including area businesses like NEC. I would especially enjoy some good old homemade burgers and dogs. Well, maybe next summer that will happen more often. I know that the aldermen of Branson are currently considering just that idea…

My Tacos Supremos!

taco2Speaking of food. it was another rather blasé Tuesday, so… I decided to make up a batch of tacos! When a man gets a hankering, that’s how it goes….

Whenever I throw together these bits of culinary heaven, I insist on using hard shells with lots of crap thrown on top! Yep! That’d be the ticket…


Taco meat (HB and taco mix)

Hard corn taco shells

Taco mix shredded cheese

Shredded lettuce

Diced tomatoes

Green chilies, chopped

Salsa Ranchera


If you don’t know how to make taco meat, please stay out of the kitchen and away from sharp blades. I prefer 80/20 ground beef mixed with McCormick’s Original Taco mix. Once this is ready, I mount the shells in my little taco holders and then throw on the rest of ingredients with wild abandon! Making tacos is about as easy as ‘cooking’ gets!
