It's The Real Thing, Amigo!

You can talk shit about the Mexicans all you want but they have enough sense not to fuck with a good thing.

When is the last time you saw one of these?


Real Coca Cola, made with cane sugar and in a full size glass bottle.
Fuck yeah baby.
I finally went into the neighborhood Groceria a couple of weeks ago after living here four years now, and I'm tellin' ya, these people have it goin' on down there!
Fucking thing has a little bakery and a butcher shop in it no less. It looks like a little hole in the wall kind of corner market but it's in this tiny little ancient strip mall and the store actually takes up the space of three little shops going into the "L" of a 90 degree building.
It's a cornerstone of the local neighborhood obviously and you will find all things Mexican in this place. The smell of fresh donuts assaults you when you walk in and you can hear the meat saw going through bones way in the back.
It's pretty damn obvious they don't get too many Gringo's in there either.

Perfect.

I can't speak Spanish for fuck all except for a few words but they speak English well enough that we do business just fine and they are actually pretty friendly once they figure out you aren't some Puerco Norte Americano.

They have all the damn spices I can't find anywhere else and at dirt fucking cheap prices too.
I paid 79 cents for two ounces of Cumin that would have cost me four bucks at Safeway.

Of course there is absolutely no way you will ever catch my wife in there but after living in San Jose all those years ago
I really miss my Mexican grocerias man.
She can keep going to Wally World because she won't let me do any of the grocery shopping but I have news for her. Not only have I found this outfit, earlier today I finally went into the local Cash and Carry. They do wholesale goods for restaurants and shit.
You can buy goods by the case and 50 pound bag if you want. I found a couple of items I want to try that come ina #10 can. That's kind of big so I want to make sure it's good so when I finally do open it, that it won't go to waste.
They also sell Bar and Kitchen goods and hardware items.
I'll be going back down there fairly soon because I want to get an Industrial Strength manual can opener instead of the absolute fucking garbage for sale everywhere else I go looking for one, if you can even find one at all.
I'm going to get two because two is one and one is none when it comes to that kind of thing in an emergency.

Who knows, maybe it will be Hecho en Mexico too.

I've Got Shit Goin' On

That means I don't have time for Blogging right now.
Everywhere I turn, I see bad fuckin' shit coming down the pike of one flavor or another. Some of it I can dodge maybe, some I see heading straight at me.

I have been letting normalcy bias lull me against my better judgement.

It might not be much at first blush but it is still more than 95% of what the rest of the idiots in this country are doing.
A little here and a little there, trying to cover some bases using what I have to work with.


Break time is over, time to get back at it.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a Camel Toe.




Houston, You Have A Problem (Updated)

Shooting a Sheriff's deputy execution style in front of witnesses takes a lot of balls.

That town is going to be virtually crawling with law enforcement of every description until they find this guy.
My guess is it won't take too long either.



Deputy shot and killed while pumping gas in Houston



HOUSTON — Harris County Sheriff's Deputy Darren Goforth was brutally gunned down while at a northwest Harris County gas station Friday evening, Sheriff Ron Hickman said.

Goforth was walking out of a Chevron gas station when a suspect approached him and shot him multiple times, Hickman said. Goforth had stopped at the gas station to fill up his patrol car.

Goforth, 47, was a 10-year veteran with the sheriff's office, working the west district patrol division. He leaves behind a wife and two children.

"It appears to be an unprovoked, execution-style killing of a police officer," Hickman said. "It strikes us all at the heart of public service. … We will hunt this person down and do our best to bring him to justice."

Hickman said in his 45 years of law enforcement, he can't recall another incident "this cold blooded and cowardly."

According to Hickman, Goforth had finished investigating a traffic accident about 30 minutes before he was killed. Hickman said it doesn't appear there was any connection between the traffic investigation and the shooting.

Sheriff's officials believe the suspect is a dark-skinned male who's about 5-feet 10-inches or 6-feet tall, 20-25 years old, wearing a white t-shirt and red shorts. Officials believe he fled the scene in a red- or maroon-colored Ford pickup truck, possibly an extended Ford Ranger. He was last seen traveling westbound on West Road.

UPDATE,
Trevat in the comments tells me the alleged perp has been apprehended. 

I didn't think it would take too long .

Heinz Bacon Recall

Who buys Turkey Bacon anyway?
The way I see it, you have Bacon and you have Turkey.
The two are supposed to be mutually exclusive.
The only time you should ever see those two words together is Turkey and Bacon Sandwich.


Kraft Heinz is recalling 2 million pounds of bad bacon

 

Here’s how to tell if your breakfast is affected

Kraft Heinz is recalling more than 2 million pounds of turkey bacon that can prematurely spoil, it was announced Tuesday.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture said that 2,068,467 pounds of Oscar Mayer turkey bacon “may be adulterated because it may spoil before the ‘Best When Used By’ date.” Kraft Heinz discovered the problem after it received “spoilage-related consumer complaints,” the USDA said.
The affected turkey bacon was packaged between May 31 and August 6 of this year, and the affected products are: Oscar Mayer “Selects Uncured Turkey Bacon” bearing the plant number P-9070, the line number RS19 and Product UPC 0 4470007633 0; Oscar Mayer Turkey Bacon “Smoked Cured Turkey Chopped and Formed” bearing the plant number P-9070, the line number RS19 and Product UPC 0 7187154874 8; and Oscar Mayer Turkey Bacon “Smoked Cured Turkey Chopped and Formed” bearing the plant number P-9070, the line number RS19 and Product UPC 0 7187154879 3.
This is a Class II recall, which is the middle level of three types and is defined as “a health hazard situation where there is a remote probability of adverse health consequences from the use of the product.” But even if you think you’ve purchased or eaten the bad bacon, fear not: the recall is classified as having low health risk.
