Old guy born and raised in Iowa, now living in South-central Texas. Spent most of my life trying to figure out the meaning of life, and now that I have an answer that satisfies me, trying to get it written down before my time's up.

    Occam’s razor makes no absolute assertions. It does not claim that the simplest answer is always correct. It merely suggests that, among all possible answers to a question, the best bet is generally the one that requires the fewest assumptions.

    There’s a lot of difference in quality depending mostly on the temperature of the oil in which it is fried. You want the coating to stick to the beef. I’ve seen instances where the beef pulled out of the coating leaving the coating intact, resembling an empty balloon.

    Back about February 1999, Mrs. Fogwhistle and I traveled to the Washington D.C. area for a cousin’s wedding, and visited the Captain George’s Seafood buffet in Colonial Williamsburg (they have multiple locations on or near the East Coast).

    The menu lists about 20 entrees, about 75% of them being seafood. And it’s an all you care to eat buffet. While we were there, EMS came to assist a patron who had been shoveling the food in a little too rapidly. I asked one of the staff if that happened very often, and he said it happened several times every day.

    So much food!

    So little time!

    A Kosher Italian funeral

    A Jewish man was leaving a convenience store with his espresso when he noticed a most unusual Italian funeral procession approaching the nearby cemetery. A black hearse was followed by a second black hearse about 50 feet behind the first one. Behind the second hearse was a solitary Italian man walking a dog on a leash. Behind him, a short distance back, were about 200 men walking in single file.

    The Jewish man couldn’t stand the curiosity. He respectfully approached the Italian man walking the dog and said: “I am so sorry for your loss, and this may be a bad time to disturb you, but I’ve never seen an Italian funeral like this. Whose funeral, is it?”

    “My wife’s.”

    ’’What happened to her?"

    “She yelled at me and my dog attacked and killed her.” She never fed him very well.

    He inquired further, “But who is in the second hearse?”

    “My mother-in-law. She came to help my wife and the dog turned on her and killed her also." She had COVID and always made him keep his distance, and wear a mask. That day she forgot.

    It was a very poignant and touching moment of Jewish and Italian brotherhood. Silence passed between the two men.

    The Jewish man then asked “Can I borrow the dog?”

    The Italian man replied, “Get in line.”

    Until next time.

    A great tragedy befalls Russia. At a Central Committee meeting dozens of high ranking officials were accidentally killed, poisoned with toxic mushrooms in their soup.

    The investigation team arrives at the scene. It was horrific, some had scratched their throats deeply, other lay with foam at the mouth or bloodshot eyes.

    But the investigation teams discovers something interesting. Three of the dead had gun shot wounds to their heads.

    “What happened here, we thought this was a poisoning?”

    “It was, but these three refused to eat their soup.”

    Until next time.

    About 20 years ago my dog was getting dive-bombed by some backyard bird. Until my dog propelled her 80 pounds skyward and nabbed the bird in mid-dive. This dog never started problems, but she sure as heck ended them.
