We grew up thinking that hamburgers from McDonald’s were a big treat. But now that I am older and know the difference between good hamburgers and barely edible hamburgers, I almost never go to McDonald’s anymore. When I want a good hamburger, the only place to go in Nashville is Backyard Burgers. They use 100% Angus beef for their burgers and they are a full 1/3 pound of hamburger.
Backyard Burgers has a variety of toppings and options, including 4 different kinds of cheese. The standard topping are a slice of fresh tomato, a large leaf of Romain lettuce, a couple slices of red onion, a splash and ketchup and mustard and three slices of dill pickle. I like the Black and Blue burger, which has a slice of thick bacon and a sprinkle of bleu cheese crumbles on it.
What is the point of arguing with people online? I don’t think many people will be swayed by expressing your own point of view on subjects. They are too busy defending their own points of view and don’t really have a stake in the outcome of the argument other than the self satisfaction of wearing you down.
I don’t like to argue with people anyway. Sometimes a healthy debate can be enlightening, but most people don’t have the self control and discipline to debate. They just resort to name calling and bullying tactics.
When people move into new surroundings, it takes a little bit of time to get adjusted. Some people seem to adapt a little easier or faster than others. I take a while to get comfortable. It don’t know why. I love to travel, but I don’t like feeling lost. I like to explore, but I like to keep track of where I am and how to get back. I wonder if there is a personality disorder for people who are perpetual gypsies. There are several songs about that, with lines like, “Home is where I hang my hat” and “Pappa was a rolling stone.”
I love vacations, but I seem to keep going back to the same places. I wonder why? There are certainly places I’ve never been that would be interesting and vacation-worthy. Maybe it’s because I only have a short period of time and don’t want to risk something so valuable on the unknown?
There are so many famous couples in Hollywood that I cannot keep up with them anymore. I used to like to read the People Magazine and watch the show business gossip shows, but then I got busy and I don’t pay much attention to them anymore.
It just occurred to me today that making a relationship work is very hard to do, and why would anyone want the extra stress of being part of a celebrity coupling? They have no privacy and people speculate on every little thing, from your hair style to the clothes being appropriate to who you are seen with. I don’t think I could handle that lifestyle.
When I get home every night, my dogs are jumping up and down and are always glad to see me. But I wonder if they get lonely during the day when I am not there? Or do they just accept the way its just them for 6 or 7 hours? I bet some dogs do get lonely. I think they have a sense of what time you are supposed to get home and they get worried if you aren’t there as expected.
