Trying Out a New Poll Program

Was asked to help try out a new poll program from www.tallyup.com. Give it a shot.

I Thought My Chocolate Pie was Sandier Than Usual

Two losers on Long Island were arrested for larceny and for tampering with a consumer product after buying Jell-O pudding boxes, replacing the contents with baggies filled with salt and sand, then returning the boxes for a refund.

Really? You thought this was a good idea? How about this. How about instead of spending all that time and effort on your stupid idea--and getting arrested for it--you spend time figuing out ways to make the $1.20 to buy each box?

New Whole Foods in Lake Grove

Opening up on March 17. Have heard rumors of this for couple years. Nice to have a Whole Foods close by. Sneak peak on March 15 with food samples, live music, and giveaways. $10 donation will be asked to benefit Long Island Cares.
I remember the first time I went to a Whole Foods. It was in Charlottesville, VA. I was looking for vitamins. The place stank to high heaven, like what the Soylent Green factory ("Soylent green is people!" or something) probably smelled like. I have no idea what caused it, but I haven't smelled it since, thank God.

Headline: Jackass Wants to Ban Salt

Some idiot New York City Assemblyman has proposed a bill banning NYC restaurants from using salt in preparing food. $1,000 for each violation.

I'm glad our public servants are tackling the tough issues.

Celebrating 5 years of Occasional Posting

So it occurs to me that this thing has been around for 5 years. Or just about. Looks like March 20 will be the 5-year mark. I thought I'd better post about it now before I forget.

When I see that, the only thing I can think of is...what a waste of time. Think of all the more productive things I could have done over those last 5 years.

...Oh well. More reviews are coming. I just have to sit down and do them. You know I finally watched Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. I'm now tempted to do this thing as a video blog.
For now I wanted to say that it looks like food shows are taking over The Travel Channel. You've got Anthony Bourdain's show, which I sometimes watch (the Montana show was great). But lately they've been pushing Man v.Food. So I'm guessing it's becoming popular.

For a while it looked like my Ghost Adventures show might become their leading thing. Not anymore.

BTW, think of the slightly disturbing premise behind Man v. Food: let's see if the fat guy can eat the giant plate of food! So it's a mystery how each show will turn out. It's like "Will Rocky win the big fight?" But, hell, I'll travel around and make a disgusting pig of myself if they pay me to. I'm all over that sh*t.
