As a general rule, I don’t shop at Publix because the prices are higher.
Until now, that’d been only a casual observation.
I had never formally price checked… until now.
Recently, I decided to purchase some groceries at Publix only because the store was conveniently along my route.
My preference continues to be for Kroger.
The 11 items purchased at Publix were: Read the rest of this entry »

Supermarkets Make Adults Fatter
In developing and emerging countries, the shift towards purchasing food in supermarkets changes people’s dietary habits and may lead to an increase of weight in adults. That is the finding of a study carried out by German researchers which was published in “Public Health Nutrition.”
Scientists from the University of Goettingen analysed data from 450 households in Read the rest of this entry »

What’s your favorite outdoor cooked food? Barbecue? Grilling? Chicken? Beef? Pork? Fish?
What’s the deal with marinades?
Bunk, or not?
And what’s a “smoke ring” on barbecue?
And what about the red stuff that runs out of beef when it’s cut after cooking – is it blood?
For answers to all those questions, and ~more!~ tune in to Read the rest of this entry »

To be honest with you, I’ve hardly had any barbecue at all this season (which begins in the Spring) – and I’ve certainly not cooked any! I think, more than anything, that’s what I really miss… the cooking!
I’ve written about barbecue, the process and procedure, but not extensively.
Typically, when I order barbecue, I like to sample three sides which have traditionally accompanied barbecue. They are slaw, potato salad, and baked beans.
My choice of meat is pulled pork. I enjoy ribs, of course, but pulled pork is my standard. Although, there are times when a sampling of ribs or brisket are available.
Now, as a ‘purist,’ I do not believe that chicken can be barbecued, neither turkey, nor beef.
So there’s my bias.
Of course, I’ve never Read the rest of this entry »

Thanks to a newly introduced aspect of ObamaCare, hospitals are now mandated to publicly show how much they charge for procedures.
Aren’t you glad?
I mean really… who goes to a grocery store or gas station and doesn’t know how much they’ll pay?

Today was a good day at work.
The last time I recollect crying at work was at least 6 or more years ago when a patient of mine – a young black male, who was his mother’s only son – had been murdered, and as I looked into her bloodshot, tired, hollow, intently peering and watery eyes, volumes were communicated though we neither said a word.
I couldn’t bear her gaze, and after what seemed ages, I averted my eyes, and departed behind a nearby curtain in the Trauma ICU to cry. There, my tears flowed like twin rivers, swollen by a storm, albeit an emotional one, which was joined by the two smaller tributaries of my nostrils. Gazing over the city from atop the 11th story of the teaching hospital through tear-drenched eyes, I wondered… was this what dear Mother Mary felt like when she gazed upon her only son as he hung from that cross?
Today, I wept for Read the rest of this entry »

Shades of Trayvon…

MONTGOMERY, Alabama — A Montgomery police officer claims in a lawsuit that he was off-duty in plain clothes at a Montgomery mall last month when security officers assaulted him after ordering him to remove his sweatshirt hoodie.
Terence Scott, 26, filed the lawsuit April 11 in Montgomery County Circuit Court against ERMC, a Chattanooga, Tenn.,-based company that provides security for Eastdale Mall. The lawsuit also names one security guard and two other unnamed security guards as defendants.
Eastdale Mall is not named as a defendant in the lawsuit that seeks unspecified amounts in damages.
Efforts to reach an attorney for ERMC have been unsuccessful this morning.
Among the claims in Scott’s civil lawsuit are negligence, assault and battery, wantonness, and that security guards used Read the rest of this entry »

For those uninitiated in the finer things of Southern culture, Barbecue is a staple Southern food.
In fact, it’s one of the primary food groups.
Snake Handler Double IPA
It’s right alongside beer.
Yep, there’s bread, also known as the “staff of life” more often, though, it’s cornbread; there’re vegetables, which include tomatoes, green beans, black-eyed peas, corn on the cob; liquid refreshments which include sweet tea, beer – and then… there’s barbecue.

Burn the bacon slooooowly…
Posted: January 5, 2009 1:52 am
This morning as I awakened, I had set the alarm for 0630 in the thoughts that I might attend the 0800 worship service.
I did not.
I was awake until around 0100 watching a DVD series of MI-5 episodes. It’s a BBC production, and a fine television series at that! As I watch their productions, I am coming to think that they are superior in their story telling to many of these made-in-Hollywood Americans.
Anyway, as I listened for the deep gurgling sounds of the coffee maker starting up – I had also set it for 0630 (or so I thought) – I did not hear it, and thought Read the rest of this entry »

Perhaps you’ve read the story. It, like many, circulates through email. (Who thinks up that junk?) And yes, it’s SPAM – pure and simple. And yes, you probably chuckled when you read it. But there’s a truth – as all those stories purport to espouse, albeit quietly. And yet, with this one, there’s a truth that’s even higher.
For those of you NOT aware of the story, although it appears in various forms, it’s summarized as Read the rest of this entry »

Personal experience from this evening’s shopping:
Brentwood, TN – Having earlier gone out for an appointment in the early evening hours, I decided to stop by the local Wal-Mart (WMT) on Nolensville Road/US Hwy 31 and purchase some grocery items on the way home. It was purely coincidental that “Super Bowl Sunday” was/is tomorrow.
One of the first stops I made at the “super Wal-Mart” (one that has a grocery store), was to the dairy case. Dairy cases are always located in the rear of every grocery store. (Why? Read the rest of this entry »

Throughout my life, I’ve owned several pair of cowboy boots. My current pair – rust red Lucchese (pronounce: Lew – casey) 1883s with Cayman inlay – has been resoled twice, and now, the upper has torn on the right outer foot. I still wear ’em.
When they were prettier, newer, and shinier, they received quite a few compliments. Or rather, I should say, many people (mostly women) complimented me about how beautiful the boots were. And honestly, they still are. They just need some loving attention with saddle soap and cream polish.
It’s just that now, their beauty lies in a very obvious state of wear.
My dad – as far as I know – has only owned one pair of cowboy boots, and Read the rest of this entry »
