Fancy Box of Chocolates are Basically Just for Presentation

     Image result for picture of a teeth forrest gump box of chocolate pictureImage result for forrest gump chocolate pictures
Who ever bought one of those fancy box of chocolates knows this to be the truth..There are several  different gift style boxed chocloares on the market. Anyone whoever bought  a box knows that  most of the candies on the box are not worth the wasted calories to consume them. There are  about 5 major brands but  whatever brand  box that is opened you’ll  soon  agree that  there are only 3 chocolates  worthy  to  have per Box the rest is just junk.. We all have said it all along. You would be 100% better off buying a box of  of Turtles or  a Pecan  clusteres any day of the year, but they come in a non-fancy  style box not exactly what you would never think to present that to someone on a memorial occasion. Like we mentioned earlier Its all about presentation nothing more.  The chocolate company selling that fancy box chocolates fools you everytime.



I’ll Bet Didn’t You Didn’t KnowThat!

Vanilla Ice – Ice Ice Baby –

Did you know that back in the time of the American Revolution that they already had Electricity and Refrigeration.? Yes it a little known fact but true..They had Ice Houses for a good 40 years at that juncture in time .Though the refrigeration units of that time to make the ice for home ice boxes was enourmous but if you had ice houses you had to gave electricity. It wasn’t for a hundred years later in the late 1880’s that   the electric street lights were installed & electricity become installed in homes nation wide it was a monumental undertaking at that time.
Also Fingerprint Technology was developed around 1880,that means that they had computers back then too..How else  could they have matched up prints in any data base..I know that years ago when you received any gov’t check it always said  “donot bend fold  or. Spindle” doing so would ruin the computer reading, same goes for all those Iowa Tests we took back in the day using those number 2 pencils.
Al  Gore accually did invent the  Internet. Before  Gores advocating  so the internet-to be open to the general public it was used strictly by Government Intelligence  agencies including  the pentagon..I will go out on limb and venture to say that the government must have had cellphone usage years before it hit the market for you & me.
I rememberer The 1964 world’s Fair at each & every eatery  they had 2018  prices back in 1964 it was beyond exspensive..however I was at he N.Y.State Pavilion next to the top of the fair & I purchased a full meal for 25 cents..when I started to consume if it was ice cold..I returned it to attendant she informed me  to use the ” Ultra  Violet” ovens..I was amazed it heated it up  in 2 minutes was an early  microwave  oven. It didn’t hit the public   until 1970..though I heard that they accually were available to Mr. & Mrs. Public back in the 1950’s..same goes for  Video Tape Recorders although  they were much bigger & not yet available in VHS or Beta Carridge” as we all remember but had a very large tape  cartridge. Lets not forget the rear projection T.V. it accually was available in 1958.
Same with T.V.Hitler watched the 1938 Olympics on T.V. back then..however it was untill 10 years later that it became a consumer item. I wonder what the Government is sitting on today?

What Ever Happened to Ziti?

   Can anyone enlighten me as why the Italian Restaurants no longer serve Ziti?  In its place is now another shaped pasta known as Penne. As far as I’m concerned it’s just not the same.  Although the taste & nutrition value are basically alike it’s just not Ziti . A while back I took  issue with  the waiter his responce was its really no difference. I said then why don’t you serve shells in that case. Even in the Supermarkets you would be hard pressed to find a box of Ziti & if you do its a very small sized variety.
      At one time resturants &  take outs were serving  a “Veal  Patty “in place of  Veal Cutlet …My father who ate Veal nearly every day complained loudly at every Eatery that replaced  a Veal Cutlet with a Patty…A law was passed saying that a restaurant must tell you that in advance whenever anyone orders Veal Cutlet  (at least in N.Y.C.)
      Another food that resturants tried to slip by you was Turkey Roll  (a compressed product made with Gelatin ).I know a member of my family who went ballistic when she orderd a Hot Open Turkey Sandwich & was served Turkey Roll in its place… She yelled at the poor waiter as if he just cheated  her out of her life savings , Her yelling was reminiscent of the way N.Y. Yankee Manager Lou Penella used to yell at the Umpire..right in his face. Bottom line when someone orders Baked Ziti thats exactly what should be served to them.

Don’t Be Suprised if Each & Every Elected Republican Will Line Up Behind Trump

  Image result for extra news boy cartoon sign   Listen up ..Whether you voted for Trump or not. We said this all during the campaign that  when push comes to shove every  Republican holding office will support him once he gets elected. We wouldn’t be one bit surprised if when they were in the voting booth that they pulled his lever. Believe us when We tell you  that all the bluster that everyone heard during the campaign was just politically correct posturing & nothing more.
The real name of the game is Jobs..Contracts & Grant Giveaways  not policy among  the Politicians. We would venture to say that it is 80% Politically Connected Plumb  Jobs & that will include those most sort after Lucrative Govt Contracts as well as  Big Money  going for Grant Studies  & Just a mere 20%  Actual Political Policy.
All Though we all worry and hope that’s not the case with all elected  Politicians. We’d like to believe  in our Heart of Hearts and that there are still real  some dedicated Loyal Patriotic Americans holding office today. Wake up and Face Reality. Do you really believe that any one holding Political Office  can be their your own man and  sort be a Rogue  Office Holder Casting his or her vote as they bloody well choses?..
There’s not much future in that..No Political Party will ever endorse you again. The majority Whip tells you (pardon Our French)  But when to Shit and when to get off the Pot.. Unfortunately even an Independent Elected Member of the House or Senate has to caucus with one of the  major party’s
The Top Echelon Cabinet positions are Small Potatoes in the handing out government connected jobs .What where  talking about  is Tens of thousands of politically appointed jobs from  low to mid level positions & let us not forget those most sort after lucrative Govt Contracts and Federal Judgeships is why each & every sitting elected Republican will get in line with Trump.
Policy is basically not what they are concerned with. You can be rest assured that they will play the public like a fine violin with Hot Button Issues such as Abortion &  Middle East  and more..Make no mistake about it without all the” Pork Barrel Goodies” available plus all of rest of that good stuff available for the pickings all of those elected officials would find some other line of employment .
So put on your thinking caps on..Why do you think anyone in their right  spend Millions in a campaign for a job paying anywhere from $175,000 -$194,000 ?So when Trump asks every Republican to jump they will reply back How High?
Don’t delude yourself they know only to well where their bread is buttered.Yes in the final analysis they will all support the President and you can take that to the bank!

Does Your Dentist Send Copies of your Xrays To An FBI Database?


Image result for pictures of an x ray of teeth


Sam & Dave – Soul Man (1967)

I know for a fact that the FBI has a Database on each and every sole of any given pair of shoes that are sold  nationwide. Every shoe sole has a distinctly different pattern from one another though we never really notice that ,That’s how the police knew back in the OJ Simpson trial that the shoe imprints were made from Bruno  Magli shoes and  that OJ Simpson owned a pair of that brand if shoes.  So his pair of Bruno Magli’s were then compared to the  FBI ‘s data base of shoes & found to be a match. I  happen to know about the Shoe Sole Database for a fact because my father was a Skiver in a Shoe Factory & it was a well know fact among workers in the Shoe Industry .
However ever wonder if all Dentists do the same with our dental X-rays ?  When ever a body is found in a Police investigation we all read that Their teeth were matched up with dental records. .Well if this is so then the only  logical answer is that Dentists must be doing the same as the Shoe industry. Since there are literally tens of  thousands of Dentists nationwide & that has to be the only logical answer as to how they can match up the deceased Teeth to an X-Ray /end

My Last Attempt At The Philly Wing Bowl by Don Lerman

         My Last Attempt At The Wing Bowl Trying To Get in To The Wachovia Center

I put up this snapshot of the Berlin wall , because trying to get into the Wachovia center on Wing Bowl day for me was harder than getting into west Berlin from east Berlin through  the Berlin wall. My name was omitted from the list of contestants… I was walking with a boot cast on and a cane in sub frigid weather having a broken foot,   I had flown my  niece & nephew in from out of state came in to watch me compete in the event .My nephew who had driven me around for 2 hrs suggested that I better attempt to get in under the fence on my own or I’ll miss my contest. Having saw many documentaries on the Berlin wall I managed to make it in , However my  entourage who I flew in and put up in a hotel never made it in on time, it was because of that that I was exhausted and didn’t perform well .  No explantion was ever given to me as why my name was omitted.  .I say this was deliberately done. Everyone  in charge of the event  played stupid as why this occured..There was no apology given  whatsoever plus the cost that I concured flying in 3 people in & puting them up in hotels including the car rental all went down the drain. In retrospect  what I should have done instead of spending all my hard earned money to bring myself & my guests to Philadelphia for The Wing Bowl is that I should have took all that money over to the nearest toilet bowl and flushed it down..Its quicker & easier  bottom line is either way You’ll never see your money again./end

Fun Unusual Fact !


  If you light up a cigarette in a restaurant not only will they throw you out but proberly call the cops as well and you’ll either be carted away or receive a hefty fine or both and guess what?They will still stick you with the check for the meal .However the shame of it is what you can sit there and fart and they can’t do a damm thing to you.Yes its true while smoking is outlawed Farting is 100% acceptable in your favorite eatery. I was recently in a Thai resturant sitting in the back next to last booth when all of a sudden soneone in the booth behind me let one rip..needless to say it ruined my meal . I would preferred to have someone smoking a big white owl and there was nothing the waiter could do. Another injustice in the world is that if you spit on the subway platform you’ll get a $350 fine but if you puke there is no fine at all. Always carry a can of air freshener with you..It was at the end of the meal that  I discovered it was the waiter who was cutting the cheese. End Of story he got squat for a tip .He should farted  in the men’s room to begin with.. Remember No Smoking  but Farting  is acceptable in any eatery./end

Tough Look of Today Much Different Than When I was Growing Up

`1950″s Tough Guy

Todays Tough Guy


 When I was growing up in the 1950-1960’s you just knew by looking at someone if he was a tough sort..There was no mistake about it. There was diffenitly a”Tough Look”..We all  could  spot it right away. The cigarette dangling from the lips,hair slicked back, a pack of Luckies rolled up in the  shoulder of  their tee shirt. You knew not to start with that person.

Today I was watching Mixed martial arts on T.V. the fighters looked like milk toasts, Mild mannered “Clark Kent” Style  But make no mistake about it..they can kick your A-s .from here to next week and in a matter of minutes can do plenty damage.I witnessed  one of these “Milk Toasts”give someone a colliflower ear in less than a minute.  Years ago nobody whould even have the  given a remote thought they were though guys.Times have changed.

Even among woman we all spotted as the old folks would say was a trampy look. Everyone knew what a cheap Nafka, Cordva, Boutona looked like. There was absolutly no mistaking when anyone was in the precence of a real whoa  (whore) .

Todays woman have a  sweet demure look about them hardy the trampy look of old even when they been around the block a million times.

All I can say don’t mouth off to a nerdy looking guy may be  yoyr last words ever spoke.

Exxon Chief Taped for Secretary of State Alarms Motorists..

 Image result for rex tillerson picture
       The newly Trump pick for Secretary of State  has set up a red flag to many motorists throughout the nation..While Trump kept his cards close to his chest on this pick..One  many are saddened that Giuliani was somehow passed over for the slot..Were not sure if Giuliani  jumped or was  pushed but both him & Ambassador Bolton somehow were shown the door.
        We just saw  Opec lowering  oil production that alone is going to take a big toll at the pump..
         This Exxon top executive scares drivers even more.many motorist believe that Big Oil was part & partial to the oil hike few years back when gas Prices soared to nearly  $5.00 a gallon at the pump. We are aware that there is a GOP majority in the Senate but we’d  nonetheless like to hear this be brought up at that Rex Tillerson’s conformation hearing and have his feet held to the fire so to speak on thus issue. We believe that his approval is not in the  nations best interest,the  oil hike a few years back wrecked  havoc on our economy many Americans lost their  cushion if comfortably and never recovered their financial loss and can’t risk 1 -2 punch of another  oil hike..Sorry but our homeowners don’t want to choose between heating their homes and feeding their families again.
       Bottom line  Rex Tillerson’s choice not a good oneLets see if our Senators will do the right thing & nix his conformation. Just like the Bannon connection to Trump all during the campaign and the Press feigned ignorance right after the elation votes were tallied…you mean to tell us that all
the mainstream media knew nothing about Tillerson?
