Why do people find it so strange to take photos of your food?

I think, for the most part, you are indeed way off the mark. I hope one day to have my food pics made into a calendar.

McDonald’s to Test Expanded Breakfast Hours

Ah, a Spam eater. Say no more. Obviously, our sense of taste differs tremendously.

As do many, many places. Try getting an over-easy egg at McD's.

Are you saying that you prefer McDonalds over Waffle House?

I don't know where you get that from. You sit at the counter and watch them cook everything right in front of you at Waffle House. If you said that about McDonalds, I'd have to agree.

PATHMARK STORES SUCK!!! Unless of Course You Do Not Mind Being Ripped Off.

I just received the new issue of Consumer Reports. The 2014 Supermarket Survey rates 68 stores. Pathmark ranked 65 with "Worse" scores in 6 out of 6 categories. Wegmans and Publix ranked 1&2.

Is it time to stop buying/eating almonds?

We lived in Vero Beach for close to 30 years and had a few trees in our backyard. The honeybell tangelos (not technically an orange) and the Duncan grapefruit (lots of seeds) were probably the best tasting citrus fruit I've ever had.

Is it time to stop buying/eating almonds?

I believe that statement was referring to the quality of the citrus in those two states.

"Florida citrus can't come anywhere near CA citrus."

Is this something you just made up or do you have actual data to back it up? Personally, I think it sounds like bullshit.

It seems the "authorities" have been way too slow to act.

Stuckey's

In the late 1950's, Stuckey's built what was their northernmost store on US22 in Whitehouse NJ. I was 10 or 11 and it was unlike anything else I'd ever seen. Since it was located right at my school bus stop, I went in almost daily. Lots of candy, but especially the pecan log rolls and pralines caught my attention. They did have a counter soda fountain (no seating) and I do remember hot dogs. Lemonade was 10 cents a glass and "all you can drink" was a quarter. I only tried that once with VERY bad results. They turned it into a "diner" sometime in the 70's I think. Here in Georgia, we have one as part of a Shell station that's about 6 miles from my house. Been here almost 9 years and never gone in.

My response was meant to be to JRC14. My point was that, a year from now when the reservoirs run dry, the almonds will be just one of the many crops that suffer. Sure, the economic effect will be devastating, but it's not like the almond trees dying are are going to be the biggest hardship.

For sure. The almond crop is the least of their problem.

Your automobile as dining room!

I don't eat while driving, but eating in my car is ok. Then again, I don't have a Ferrari or a Mercedes or an Audi Q5.

Why is it so difficult to find a bread knife?

Indeed. I'm probably as old as him.

Why is it so difficult to find a bread knife?

I've been using the same "August Kullenberg Solingen Germany Stainless" 7" serrated bread knife with an oak handle for over 40 years. I also have a Montana (Italian) 9" stainless with an adjustable "fence". Both work fine, but I mostly use the old shorter one. Why anyone needs a $150 bread knife is beyond me.

Well then, the server can always move to a "blue" state where they only require employers to pay workers the federal tipped minimum wage ($2.13) and hope the tips improve.
