The Real McDonald’s: The San Bernardino Origins of a Fast Food Empire

Hadley MearesAugust 5, 2016

https://www.kcet.org/food-living/the-real-mcdonalds-the-san-bernardino-origins-of-a-fast-food-empire  

McDonald's started in San Bernardino, and Carl's Jr started in Anaheim, now they are both worldwide.

I met a guy who was lucky enough to have Spielberg make his movie, "Amistad," and he used some of the money that he earned to open 5 McDonald's restaurants in South Africa, and he hired his family members to work at his restaurants.

In Rome you can get a glass of wine with your Big Mac.

Salute,

I am 105, enjoy perfect health, and run six miles a day, followed by two hours of somersaults and cartwheels. My secret is a diet of champagne, almonds, and tater tots, with a cup of gravy each night before bed. My advice to the young? Believe every single thing you read on the internet. And always say "yes" when a stranger offers you candy.

DiGiorno frozen pizzas are great, I love them.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DiGiorno

https://www.digiorno.com/

They are of very high quality. My favorite is the Supreme with the rising crust.

And Freschetta frozen pizzas are good too. My favorite from them is the Canadian bacon with pineapple.

https://www.freschetta.com/

If people are sending frozen foods to the refugees, and also for local foodbanks, the new frozen pizzas are fantastic, and people will love them.

Also, I bet they would love them in emerging economies.

And college towns will buy them up, I am sure they would be popular with students.

Salute,

I read that some people in some neighborhoods are unable to get good, healthy food, and that they do not have good grocery stores.

https://www.mic.com/articles/30301/9-cities-where-poor-people-lack-access-to-healthy-food

I recommend that the Mexican markets expand into areas where good healthy markets are needed.

Here are some links with some info on a couple of Mexican markets here in the USA.

https://www.facebook.com/NorthgateMarket

https://www.northgatemarket.com/

https://vallartasupermarkets.com/

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vallarta_Supermarkets

https://youtu.be/z59_f8jmLz4

I myself shop at a Mexican market regularly. They have great food that is healthy and affordable. Areas where they need good markets with healthy food need Mexican markets.

And of course good American products need to be sold in the Mexican markets here as well.

If people want a good market with healthy food in their neighborhood, with low prices, then invite a Mexican market to your neighborhood. They are expanding and they are growing, if you want them in your neighborhood then let them know.

I had elote today.

The elote man is well respected in this neighborhood.

Elote is corn on the cob, with mayonnaise, and Parmesan cheese, and butter, and chili powder.

Some people like the corn on the cob better roasted on a barbecue grill in its own husk leaves, but some people like it better boiled in water.

The elote man makes the kind with corn on the cob boiled in water.

That is a good thing about living in Anaheim, we are lucky to have an elote man.

Salute,

California makes great wine, and one affordable wine maker is Almaden. I love their Cabernet Sauvignon. They sell their wine in a box, and the boxes of wine are popular at parties in California.

https://www.almaden.com/about-us/

As we balance trade with China, then China needs to buy California wine, they will love it.

The Chinese would also love California cheese.

As we balance trade with China then they will find that we have good stuff, we are not trying to punish them by asking them to buy our products. We have great stuff to export. And our people need jobs too.

China also needs to buy Kentucky Bourbon, that would really help the people of Kentucky.

https://kybourbon.com/bourbon_culture-2/key_bourbon_facts/

And Florida orange juice.

https://www.floridacitrus.org/

And Idaho frozen French fries.

https://idahopotato.com/dr-potato/240

China needs to start buying products from the USA.

We need to balance trade.

Rather whimsical to find posts on bourbon, wine, french fries, McDonald's, and frozen pizza in "Fitness and Nutrition." 

Tony, I heartily endorse your earlier post where you said "Life to too short not to make great spaghetti."  Also, try whole wheat pasta which has lots of fiber and more protein, and has a nice nutty taste.  I also recommend less sweet sauces - try throwing in a few leaves of Swiss chard, as well as the extra-virgin olive oil, onions and bell peppers and basil and so on.  Chickpeas also go well.  Finally, ground up walnuts harmonize well with Italian red sauces.  Walnuts, BTW, have a group of fatty acids that help reduce inflammatory response in the body, which can help ward off digestive, heart, and arthritis problems.

Thanks Barton, I have tried the whole wheat pasta, but I have not tried putting ground up walnuts in the sauce. I will have to try it.

In the winter you can go clam digging here in Southern California, in any month that contains the letter "R," but you have to wait for it to get cold, the colder the better.

I have never been clam digging, but I want to do it this winter. I want to go clam digging, and then I want to make homemade clam chowder.

I should have done it when I lived in Malibu, they say Malibu is a great place to go clam digging.

And I want to get a girlfriend who enjoys doing that kind of stuff with me.

Salute,

Tony V.
