Granny Cantrell’s

“Your very own whistle-stop cafe’… Granny Cantrell’s!” That’s how the jingle goes when you hear it on many of the Panama City radio stations, and they nailed it when they sang that ditty. Cleave and I hit this little local game on 23rd St. for breakfast one day, and the place blows Waffle House away! My only regret was that we could not have been there for lunch instead. It was a Wednesday, and that day’s special was corned beef and cabbage. Cleave had been in a mood for something maple-y that day, and since we both had doctor’s appointments in town then, it was from Baldwin Ave. to Granny Cantrell’s, then to Pier Park, then back to Gulf Coast……

Rock N Roll Sushi

While awaiting a very long day of waiting for Cleave to get through a root canal up in Dothan, I craved some Japanese food.

Fox News and puzzle video games that were much more interesting than Fox News, even if they were pretty much Candy Crush clones with a bit more challenge to them. After getting the procedure done, we headed to Pet Smart to get some catnip and cat grass plants for our little calico stoners, Mouse and Shelley,……

Sniglet Of The Day

Sniglet of the Day: March 26

Corntamination – Corntamination occurs when GMO crops grow near organic crops, and somehow those things non-GMO consumers thought were safe turn out to have traces of the nasty stuff in them. This is especially for those whom have allegies to GMO crop like corn or soy, or other Frankenfoods (another Sniglet for another day…). When a person allergic to GMOs get these things in their systems, they will become cranky, bloat up, and complain for days about how whomever made the dish they thought was safe tried to poison them. Some days reading labels is just not enough, and you never know when corntamination might occur, especially in countries that have given their lives over to Monsanto and Cargill. As……
