Dairy Queen Blizzards are tasty. They are like a milkshake but with candy bars blended into them. Very good idea. Maybe not as good as the dip cone or hot fudge sundae but a close third.
|Before I took a bite.|
That is when they are made right. Which is very seldom at the Dairy Queen in our little town. The young people and even the old people who work there can’t be bothered long enough to make it correctly. They are in a hurry to mess up the next order I guess.
They don’t blend them long enough to get a constant flavor throughout. You get flavor at the top. You get flavor at the bottom. You get some flavor in pockets but you also get a whole lot of plain vanilla ice cream. I like vanilla ice cream, I just don’t like paying the price of a Dairy Queen Blizzard to get it.
My other problem is they never fill it full. I would guess after 25 years DQ has it down to a science. Apparently these people flunked science. It’s also true of the cones and that’s why I was trying blizzards.
So I guess it’s time to try Sonic Drive In!
General Motors is eliminating the spare tire on many of it’s vehicles and in turn has eliminated me as a GM customer. Their reasoning is the weight of tire, rim and tire tools hurts the gas mileage too much to carry. My reasoning is I am a man therefore I carry a spare tire.
They have included a “tire inflator kit.” If the tire is too damaged for that remedy you can always push the OnStar button and request help. Good idea unless you are half way between Tonapah and Las Vegas, Nevada where the closest human lives at Groom Lake Air Base. Better known as Area 51. You ever try knocking on those guys door to get help? How many of you want to spend a few hours in the dark outside Area 51 waiting on a tow truck?
So now I will not buy a GM car. This is probably good for me because by eliminating that brand it’s cut my choices dramatically and makes car purchasing that much easier. I recommend you also choose something besides GM.
Unless of course you wear a sun dress and a bonnet on Easter because that’s the only people who shouldn’t change their own tires.
Paula Creamer playing match play yesterday was as gorgeous as usual but she ruined my Sunday. I was clicking around the TV yesterday waiting for the NASCAR All Star race when I saw a familiar sight. It was, of course Paula Creamer bent over a putt in a short golf skirt. In case you wondered her legs are as shapely as ever. She was leading Angela Stanford in match play thus guaranteeing me something worth watching today. Then it happened.
Stanford got hot. No not as hot as Paula looks but certainly enough to catch Paula Creamer and pass her. Stanford ending up winning and I am stuck with nothing to watch.
Sure I could watch Nationwide racing but I am guessing Kyle Busch is racing and I hate him. He already led to me giving up M&M’s and changing dog food after 22 years of serving Pedigree to my Boxers.
This is all because Paula Creamer, in her constant desire to look cute and impress us, forgot to win. Paula the red skirt and ribbon in your hair did remind us of why we watch the LPGA but still please in the future remember to finish the opponent because we really like you best on the last day when you are all in pink and the only woman on the tour who realizes it’s okay to be feminine and a great golfer too.
I want a griddle built into my range. Is this not an obvious thing? Most things I cook are in a pan and I could just use the griddle. When I cooked professionally my range had a griddle and eight burners. I miss that thing! It also had two ovens and a broiler.
I could make large amounts of food with that thing. I still need to do that! I have four sons and all of their friends. They have lots of friends and they are always hungry.
So I want a griddle built in to my range. I have seen them but they must be made of gold because they are about three times as much as a standard range. Three times seems excessive. Doesn’t it?
Of course at my age everything seems excessive.
- gas prices
- swear words on TV
- price of cell phones without a plan
- Fast food restaurants
I could go on and on and on and…..you get the idea. The world is nuts and I am getting to be a cranky old man long before I should be.
I don’t care and if you don’t like it….GET OFF MY LAWN!!!!
Anyone who owns a Microsoft operated computer knows why Bill Gates named his system Windows. It’s obviously because that’s where I want to throw it about once a week. This sounds bad but it really isn’t. Like I said I want to throw it out the window once a week, his earlier forays into computing I wanted to throw out the window much more often.
Windows ME, it was at least once a day I looked at the window with monitor and CPU in hand. Windows XP wasn’t bad – maybe a 6 times a month. Now I have Windows Vista. Windows Vista? You ask. Yes Windows Vista. If I would of bought my computer 2 days later I could of upgraded to Windows 7 for free. I know I could pay but I have already learned this irritating operating system. You know the whole bird in the hand is worth two out the window.
So now I have Vista and an open window. At least that way I don’t break a perfectly good window.
Gasoline has dropped 5 cents a gallon in the last few days in my town. After of course going up 35 cents last week. Even after all this, gas is selling at about half the price of bottled water at the convenience store.
Our state’s Attorney General is looking into the gasoline stations for price gouging. What about the thieves with a water hose and a few empty plastic bottles?
Water at $1 for 16 ounces? Yes that works out to $8 a gallon. If there was only a way to get water delivered to our homes at an affordable price. Maybe some kind of pipe and faucet system.
Wouldn’t that be a money saver!
McDonald’s is looking to purge the human element from the order process. They want you to take your own order and use credit or debit cards to pay. They will still need a person to assemble the order and cook your food but you won’t have those pimply faced cashiers to kick around any more.
I don’t know about you but they won’t have me any longer either. I don’t like self service checking at WalMart and I sure as hell not going to do it in a restaurant. If you don’t care enough about your customers to hire people to interact with them I will find a restaurant that does.
If I wanted to take my families order I would of stayed home.
Boston Rob wins Survivor. It seems amazing to me that those idiots on Survivor would allow Rob to stay around past the first tribal council let alone all the way to the win.
But I am glad they did. He made the show worth watching this season. Rob was a guy I really didn’t like when I first saw him ten years ago but like an aging ball player I have grown to respect him and appreciate his devotion to the game.
He played the game to win. He didn’t make the rules. he just used them to his advantage. He deceived people to win. Just like I do in poker.It’s the way the games are played. If you have a problem with his deceptions you are watching the wrong show.
Try Sesame Street, it may be more your cup of tea.
I just read that Jamie Little of ESPN thinks ABC’s Wipeout is funny. This makes Jamie our favorite sportscaster/reporter. It doesn’t hurt her ranking when she slides into her fire suit to report on NASCAR. We are not sure why they make the males at ESPN wear fire suits, while reporting the races, but we are pretty sure of the reason they require it of Jamie Little.
It was probably either a fire suit or a bikini and ESPN couldn’t figure out a believable story for the bikini – so fire suit it is!
