SPRING FORWARD, FALL BACK. NOT SO FAST, PARD!

Mon, 05 Nov 2018 -

NOT HERE. IT’S TOO HOT!

Why doesn't Arizona observe daylight-saving time?

The short answer: The last thing Arizona needs to save is daylight. On a July day when the high is 114 degrees, do you really want the sun hanging around until 8:40 p.m.? I don't think any of us did..

WE HAD IT, THEN WE DIDN’T!

The real tussle began with the Uniform Time Act of 1966. The following year, daylight-saving became permanent.

States could opt out, but Arizona took part that first summer and realized that late sunsets were not cool (literally). Didn’t take long to learn things the hard way.

In 1968, Arizona politicians may well have set a record for nearly unanimous agreement.

The House voted 49-1, and the Senate 25-3, to boot daylight-saving. That sort of agreement will never happen again.

So while almost all of the rest of CONUS fumbled with their various timepieces, we wise folks in Arizona DID NOTHING.

DON'T GO IN THE BASEMENT! (HUMOR)

Sun, 30 Sep 2018 -

THIS WON’T WORK IN TUCSON. NO BASEMENTS.

GO TO AN OPEN HOUSE AND ASK THE REAL ESTATE AGENT IF THEY’LL STAND IN THE BASEMENT WITH THE DOOR CLOSED SO YOU CAN HEAR IF THE SCREAMS ARE AUDIBLE OUTSIDE.

And, no, you're not actually supposed to do this. They made me say that.

TAKE THE BRIDGE? (humor)

BEST NEW COMMERCIAL ON TV???

Commercials. I know. We all hate them. I fast forward through virtually all of them, since I record shows on my DVR to watch later. Sans commercials.

But not this one. I even back up the show to watch this one. Some ad person really had a great idea. This cracks me up.

This ad is the new Metro PCS ad. Sorry I couldn’t figure out how to get the picture, but here’s the Youtube link.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CARLOTTA FLORES

Tue, 02 Oct 2018 -

about3

Today is Carlotta’s birthday. How nice, you say. What’s so special about Carlotta?

Well, how about I tell you. Carlotta Flores is head chef/owner of Tucson’s very own El Charro restaurant. And that’s saying something. Mexican restaurants are ubiquitous to Tucson. They are everywhere.

And yet there is only one original El Charro!

Established in 1922, El Charro Café of Tucson, Arizona is The Nation's Oldest Mexican Restaurant in continuous operation by the same family. Featuring traditional Northern Mexico-Sonoran style and innovative Tucson-style Mexican Food, El Charro Café is truly as Gourmet Magazine wrote: "A Taste Explosion".

With a large array of award winning hand-crafted recipes based on Sonoran and Local ingredients, El Charro Café is a passage to Tucson's Culinary History that has been won the dining icon acclaim from all over the world. People come from all corners of the globe to experience El Charro Café.

Holy crap, this food is GREAT! I should know.

The Legendary Tia Monica Flin, is well-known as “The Inventor of The Chimichanga.” While frying her now famous El Charro ground beef tacos, she accidentally dropped a burro into the frying pan and when the oil splashed up she was about to lash out a common Spanish cuss word starting with “Ch” but because she was amongst her young nieces and nephews, changed it to “Chimichanga”, the equivalent of “thingamajig.” Thankfully for all of us, Monica was a controlled and creative cuss.

For the complete story of El Charro, just click this link. You can thank me later…
