Angela. Ever have a cool ranch taco at Taco Bell?


I have only eaten at Taco Bell once in my life, and it was before the invention of the cool ranch taco.

My fast food experiences are quite limited, and therefore somewhat memorable. I've eaten at McDonald's twice in my life. I remember the first time. It was on a field trip with the Girl Scouts in the sixth grade. I remember liking the hot apple pie. The second time was several years ago in Arizona with nieces and nephews who were lured by the "contrived collectable" toys in Happy Meals at the time. I ordered a salad. It was ok.

I ate at a Carl's Jr. once, about 25 years ago, on a road trip with a friend to LA. It was the first time I had ever had waffle fries and I remember them as being dangerously tasty, when dunked in ranch dressing.

I had Kentucky Fried Chicken a few times as a child. My parents never bought it, but I had it in the homes of friends. Eric and I took a nephew to KFC when we were on a road trip several years ago. I remember finding the chicken greasy and the mashed potatoes salty.

I put on extra weight very easily. Lucky me for having such an efficient body!!! No calories wasted here!!! When that plane crashes in the Andes, I'm going to outlive everybody on board. In the meanwhile, I try to keep my weight somewhat in check by avoiding fast food. If I am going to down extra calories (and trust me, I do this early and often) I'd rather they be calories from foods I've had a hand in making.


But really, if your care about Vic. How come not one of you have even tried to talk like a friend and stepped up to the plate and say the obvious.

Many of us in this community care deeply about Vic. Certainly Vic has received kind and supportive health information from friends, through both public posts and private pms. What Vic ultimately chooses to do is between Vic and his personal physician.

My friends, stress is a big factor in overall health.

Personal journal style threads can be a form of stress relief, and can therefore be health-promoting.

If I had started a personal journal-style thread about the complexities of my life, I think that I would feel very, very, very stressed if I had to defend myself all the time from accusations that I am a chubby little raccoon and that being a chubby little raccoon increases my health risks. It would defeat the purpose of me having a stress-relief thread if defending myself, again and again, ultimately resulted in increased stress.

Let us all be kind to one another, please.

I'm at 21,550 points and now in 27th place out of 50, the floor is at 16,300 points, and I have nothing more to open for the day.

@ Angela, no bag or bottle beyond 1 each was consumed, the rest were poured down the drain or are in a trash bag.

I only consumed 1 bottle, and 1 bag, the rest I either poured down the sink, or is in a trash bag uneaten, cost this time?

About $66.72 this last time for 17 of each(bags/bottles). One Stater Bros Market had the bottles on sale for $0.77ea+ 0.10 crv fee and 7.75% sales tax, they had 16 bottles, I bought them all, next time I'll see if they have more, it's that or Food4Less or Walmart, Walmart has the 250 point bags, no one else carries those @ $2.98 each.

I'm close, real close, another 12,000 points and I know I'd win an auction.

The bottles were full this morning, now they are empty and in a trash bag waiting to be taken to the local recycler, I've got 3.5 bags worth now.

Chris, you have made your position abundantly clear. I'm sure that if Vic wishes to be the beneficiary of your additional thoughts on this matter, he will contact you directly.

I got back from the Doctor, outside of some congestion in My chest I'm ok, blood pressure was a bit high, but as I had had a cold recently, that is understandable, so I have blood work to get done, and a chest xray, then in 5 months I get to see My Doctor again. He's a busy guy. Oh and I didn't gain any weight since last time either, last time was 416, this time 414, it's their scale, not mine.

On the Xbox One X, I started at 5th this morning, I'm now at 26th, and still probably going to be outbid, but the average lowest winner is now down to 27,400, and I'm still at 21,550, so who knows?

Fortune might smile on Me yet...

This ends on Jan 12th 2018.

Grace is fed, and was sleeping.

Edit: Oh and the TV main board came in today, but too late for today, since I need to be able to see everything.

Once again I was outbid, the current top bidder has 29,600, I found someone interesting is ahead of Me, it's someone named Eric K, Eric K is currently in 4th place, I'll just have to try harder, and I'll get an Xbox One X Console.

Tuesday is My TV repair day, I'll either be successful or I won't.

Wish Me luck, if you want. I could use it.

Eric K
Bid: 28,850

Eric is a very common first name and lots of last names begin with K.

I never said it was your Eric K, just that some lucky dude, named Eric K, got an Xbox One X Console, and that I need to try harder.

Even My name there is Victor B, that could be almost anyone, almost.

Just a minor point to consider.
During the auction the link to "Eric K" may well point to the auction concerned, and probably to "proper" position within the auction; once the auction has finished it points to the next (today's) auction for the same prize - which isn't what I think you wanted us to see. I can't see a way around this :-(

However I too found it quite fascinating that the person just ahead of you was an Eric K - now do I believe Angela's protestations or not....on the balance of probability I think I just about do

Thanks Lynn, but I'm done, the TV is dead, I tried to install the board, all it did is light up the optical audio port, nothing else, not even a Samsung TV display on the screen, complained to ebay about the board, like in a refund, since I think the board is crap, and I feel like crap too, I'm in front of a fan cooling off, it had 6 screws.

Next is wait for some more energy and something else, then order a stand off of Amazon($39.90 to maybe $44.60 or so), then a Refurbished TCL 55" 4K TV from Walmart($377.06 or so, last I looked, w/shipping to Me). At least once I can.



Universal Table Top Swivel TV Stand Base for 32 inch to 60 inch TVs with 40°Swivel,
4.7" Height Adjustment, Tempered Glass Base, Holds up to 60lbs by HUANUO

These feet won't fit My TV stand, that's why the above TV Base.
Shipping is via Freight, would arrive by November 28th, cost $19.97,
pickup is free at Walmart, but I don't know if the box would fit in My car trunk,
the opening is not very big.

And yes I feel as weak as a puppy, a sick one at that. I'm not kidding either.

Thanks Gordon, thankfully I have enough paper towels, 2 rolls, the drainage will stop soon.

The Doctor did say My lungs are clear, all the way to the bottom, so no pneumonia, and I bought 2 boxes of generic green pills(like NyQuil).

Erik is the most common name in Sweden.
And of course Janne that is the ninth most common name:)
Korpela is a last name that is a very common name in Finland espacially around the east cost around the town Vasa.
