Saturday Morning Video Funhouse – The Cheesiest…

Thanks to Topless Robot for this clip…

Presenting the 100 cheesiest movie lines of all time.  While all lists can be debated ad nauseum, I sure you will agree after viewing that regardless of ranking, these are quite cheesy!

Oh and notice how many Star Wars prequel lines are in here.  I love Star Wars, that much is true, but George really can write some stinkers!

ALERT: There are some dirty words in here so consider yourself warned.


Have a great weekend everyone.

Bringin’ Up a Bacon Baby…All About the Smarts

Could bacon be brain food for your baby??  A new study suggests as much…

This article pulled from the UK’s “Daily Mail” 

…Scientists have found that eating a plate of bacon and eggs could help pregnant women boost the intelligence of their unborn child.

Women are usually given a list of foods to avoid during pregnancy and it is well documented that a pregnant woman’s diet can affect her unborn baby.

Scientists have found that eating a plate of bacon and eggs could help pregnant women boost the intelligence of their unborn child

But the new study suggests that a chemical in pork products and eggs can help the baby’s growing brain to develop.

Scientists at the University of North Carolina have discovered that the micronutrient, called choline, is vital in helping babies in the womb develop parts of their brains linked to memory and recall.

In a study of the effects of choline on the brains of baby mice, those fed small doses of choline while in the womb had genetic differences to those given large amounts.

Dr Gerald Weissmann, editor-in-chief of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology journal, which published the research told The Telegraph: ‘We may never be able to call bacon a health food with a straight face, but [similar studies] are already making us rethink what we consider healthy and unhealthy.’

Other foods that contain a high level of the nutrient include liver, milk, chicken and nuts.

Previous studies have suggested that large doses of choline could help protect against heart problems.

Better Half and I are constantly saying (more like jokin’ around) that Lil’ Baird is “advanced”.  Guess it was all those big bacon breakfasts at the Baird compound when she was preggers.

AH HA! Republic of Bacon Unmasked…with Video!

You know, next time I should really pay attention when someone asks to add my blog to their site…LOL.

It turns out that Republic of Bacon, the site I mentioned a few weeks ago, is the new website for Maple Foods up there in Canuckistan.  Well now that explains why it look so fancy.

Maple Foods just launched a bunch of commercials promoting their fine product and website…and if you love bacon, you’ll get these right away.  Wanna peak? [Read more →]

Bringin’ Up a Bacon Baby…Teachum’ Young

 So this weekend Lil’ Baird was playin’ around with her Fisher Price Little People House that she got from GG (my mom) this Christmas.  I started picking up the pieces that went with the house and noticed something very interesting…look closely…

There is BACON on one of the plates!!! 


Fisher Price subliminally promoting the most delicious of pork products.  Nice move.

While she has yet, at 16 months, to taste bacon…she’s definitely being “primed” ;-)

Fast Food Friday? – Not This Week…But Still Had a Great Burger!

So at the end of last week’s review I said I was going to Dairy Queen this week.  Do you know how hard it is to find a DQ that actually is still a Brazier store and serves lunch?  Well, it’s very hard.  I found one, but it was a drive…so I thought I’d knock off a different place and checked out where the nearest Hardee’s was. Well, there are only two Hardee’s left in metro Detroit and again, they are a haul to get to. 

So mostly due to my unwillingness to drive anywhere this week, I’ve got nothin’ today! 

Well that isn’t exactly true.  On Wednesday after the Auto Show I did go to one of my favorite bars in Detroit for lunch. Ironically it is called the Detroiter Bar (funny how that works).  They have an everyday house special that includes the Detroiter burger (1/2 lb. cooked to order with ham and bacon on it!!!), fries and a beer for under $9.00.  They are consistently on everyone’s lists of top burgers and why wouldn’t they be when you stack that much pork on a burger?!? 

If you are headin’ downtown for a game, to gamble, whatever…grab yourself some lunch at the Detroiter.  You will leave happy, trust me!

Grange Kitchen & Bar…

I got a late start on my “Detroit Free Press” today.  I wasn’t really up to reading the paper but since we in Detroit now only get a paper delivered three times a week, I felt obligated to at least flip through it.

Main section - former mayor a deadbeat, MA election referendum on Obama, blah, blah…

Sports - Spartans just squeezed by Iowa so I didn’t want to read anything about that game cause I was still mad at them!

Business – blah…

Auto - nice Hit or Miss article about the Auto Show (which I’ll show some pictures of tomorrow)…but that was it.

Puzzles – killed them!

Then I came to the weekend tabloid and saw this…

Grange…I know this place…how do I know about this place??? [Read more →]
