Little know fact,

Most people don't know that back in 1912, Hellmann's mayonnaise was manufactured in County Mayo, Ireland.  In fact, the Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico, which was to be the next port of call for the great ship after its stop in New York.

This would have been the largest single shipment of mayonnaise ever delivered to Mexico.... But as we know....the great ship did not make it to New York....The ship hit an iceberg and sank .... and the cargo was forever lost....

The people of Mexico, who were crazy about mayonnaise, and were eagerly awaiting its delivery .... were disconsolate at the loss....
Their anguish was so great, that they declared a National Day of Mourning which they still observe to this day.... The National Day of Mourning occurs each year on May 5th.... and is known....of course....as Sinko de Mayo....

Mid 40's and sunny here.

Washed the vehicle in the driveway for the first time since October.

Must be "the other white meat" day because I have a pork loin to grill this afternoon.

"The owners said they had lost track of the gold bar’s whereabouts."

Can someone please explain this to me?  How in the world do you lose track of a freakin' bar of GOLD?


One word

Canadians.

TILBURY, ONT.—Provincial police say a plumber is facing a March 1 court date after allegedly stripping in front of a customer.
Police say a Tilbury, Ont., woman called a plumber on Jan. 16 after finding she had no hot water.
It’s alleged that when the plumber arrived, he stripped naked in front of the homeowner and put on his overalls and, upon completing the job, undressed again and put his clothes back on.
The man then gave the woman a bill and left.
Police say a 55-year-old Comber, Ont., man was arrested Wednesday night and charged with mischief.
OPP say Chatham-Kent police believe that this may not have been the first time that the man has displayed this behaviour and are asking anyone with information to contact police.

Roku has a free CBSNEWS app, they even have a YouTube one now.
They even have FOX if you like listening to people yell at each other.

If you set up your subscriptions in YouTube you can get any news source you want commercial free and pick what items you want to watch.
For local news you setup OTA. Over The Air Antenna.

Hulu is for movies and tv shows.
All the movies Netflix "lost" went to Hulu.

Look at the Rokus on roku.com.

I am sayig Rokus because I don't know anything about AppleTV.

What is your internet like?
Speeds up and down and data caps?

We cut the cable tv cord a few years back.
Between over the air antenna, Hulu via internet, Roku3 and 4, and "other means" we haven't looked back at traditional cable or satellite.

The Broken Lizard comedy troupe has begun production “Super Troopers 2,” six months after raising $4.4 million in a crowdfunding campaign for the sequel.

The campaign had been the second-most successful crowdfunding campaign for a movie. It was funded through  Indiegogo with over 50,000 contributors and raised  77% of the $5.7 million record for crowdfunding for a film, set by the “Veronica Mars” movie on Kickstarter in 2013.

Perks offered as incentives that were sold on the first day included a producer title for $10,000, a speaking actor role for $10,000, a trip to the ballpark with the main actors for $15,000 and the patrol car to be used in the filming for $35,000.

“Super Troopers 2” met the initial goal of $2 million in 26 hours. Fox Searchlight agreed to release the sequel if the $2 million goal was met.

“Super Troopers 2” reunites all five Troopers from the original film — Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske. The quintet play goofy Vermont state troopers with a penchant for pranks and feuding with other local law enforcement officers.

“Super Troopers” was made for $1.2 million and acquired by Fox Searchlight at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival. It grossed $23 million worldwide.

Broken Lizard also made 2004’s “Club Dread” and 2006’s “Beerfest,” which grossed $20 million. The troupe performed in “Broken Lizard Stand Up” for Comedy Central in 2010.

Stolhanske shared a photo on Instagram from the set with Heffernan as production got underway.

That's the beauty of it.

NOTHING but nature and quiet.

Koliganek is the last village at the top of the Nushigak river.

Any boats you see above the village, you know who they are.

13  Fairfax Bloggers / Crazy Cuzzin Mike From Alaska / Back home on: September 30, 2015, 04:19:55 PM
After a month back in Koliganek I came back home Saturday,

We had a cargo charter into the village and we back hauled some tools out along with me.

This is the 1st time I got to fly through Lake Clark Pass.
Usually we go over it.

We were in a Cessna Caravan so the pilot stayed low due to icing.

WORTH IT!
