That's true. Best place to eat something is in its country of origin I guess.


Funny how McDonalds changes the menus like in Hawaii they even serve rice and I have heard other's like Japan and so on put a twist to the meals. I don't stop there often I can't handle the grease and salt. I wonder how Taco Bell does in China? :)



We only have McDonalds here, no Burger King, Taco Bell or Jack in the Box. We also have the Belgian counterpart of McDonalds which is called 'Quick'. In Holland they do have Burger King though.

In Yermo, We have Jack in the Box, Burger Den(in the Original location of the 1st Del Taco restaurant), Peggy Sue's 50's Diner, Calico Ghost Town and there's a smaller diner near the Jack in the Box that I've been passed that I don't know the name of... But that's all for Yermo, Barstow has more, McDonalds, Burger King, Jack in the Box, 3-DelTaco's, Taco Bell, KFC, Wendys, Sizzler, Ihop, PizzaHut, Little Caesars, Domino's Pizza, etc, etc...


Wow, wouldn't be good for my diet to live there. Where I live, you have to drive 20 minutes to go to a Mc Donalds...

20 minutes or so is how far away Mc Donalds is from here in Yermo, I rarely go to a fast food place, how often is rarely? The last time I did was about 2 or 3 years ago, I cook My own food, it's less expensive than driving...

I have no kids and Grace could care less, a dog would at least like the fries, besides most burgers have over 1500 calories, that's a lot and I'm heavy enough now and I think I've lost some weight or at least not added any. So I stop at once a year having a thin crust pizza and a bottle of mountain dew, maybe.

Like you I live alone and the kids all left the roost but I rather cook for myself. The fresher Veg, the better.

I also prefer fresh vegetables for the kids but once every month can't harm I guess.

Since I live too far from shopping, I buy frozen, but then I'd rather not do all the prep just for the veggies to wind up in the freezer, fries are still potatoes and I've noticed some changes, but none of them bad and since I don't have enough rechargeable AA batteries I can't use the scale that I have, is it accurate? Probably not, but it's close enough.

The scale I have here uses batteries as it's a digital scale. I'm not into using springs.

That started around 1492, but didn't really get going until the 18th Century according to the wiki at least...

He's right on that one. Potatoes, tomatoes and think corn too. had a very slow starting but look at them today.
Look at how many kinds of potatoes their are now. almost 500 kinds of tomatoes, and how many selects of corn and all started with a boat ride.

I like the white corn most but the tomatoes I dislike them cutting them so green. No flavor at all. I grow my own.

I heard and I don't know if this is totally true or not but the great potato famine started with some potatoes from Mexico with something wrong with them. Maybe Mayans revenge. :o (that was a thrown in)

Corn (maize) is a new world plant. The native Americans of New Mexico had a diet that consisted of corn, beans, squash, and hunted meat (mostly deer). Other native Americans had somewhat different diets. One tribe that I read about in California had learned how to treat acorns so that they were edible. Acorns are really not good for you long term, however, soaking acorn meal leaches the chemicals that are not good for you out.

Corn was a staple throughout the Americas North of the equatorial Rain Forest and south of the someplace in Canada. It was first cultivated someplace in Mexico from Teosinte. (Yes this is from memory. I took a few anthropology courses as electives in college).
