My hope is that I’ll be given a tour of the facility and the kitchen. I’m looking forward to speaking with the Chef/Kitchen Manager. This will be…

DK’s Donuts!

Charley’s!

There usually aren’t too many great choices at food courts in the malls across America. Shoot, I used to work at a food court in Escondido, California.  I’ve ‘been there, done that’. As I tell my son, I loathe going to the local mall. Not because the mall is a bad place – I just…

Uber vs Lyft vs SideCar…

Those who know me know that I’ve owned a small red Ford Ranger XLT pickup truck for the past eight years. This little truck has helped me move several times – as well as help those friends in need as well. It was a 4.0L V6 engine that didn’t get very great gas mileage. It…
