    I read that all four leads were nominated for GG or something, if that means anything...a really weird film is 'Menu.'..something different, ourageous, almost a Agatha Christie thing, with Ralph Fiennes soaring.

    have to relate a recent event regarding cholesterol
    so there is this most amazing little hole in the wall taco place in Chatsworth called fast taco and i've been going there 30 years plus
    its run by two second gen Armenian brothers and one cook Alfredo that's been there for 20+ years
    nothing fancy but its really good and has a legendary status along w Earls donuts, San Carlo deli and the Munch box
    ok maybe not in the same league as those but pretty damn close
    anyway over the years I forged a pretty decent friendship w one of the brothers, Steve, based on 10 minute animated conversations
    got him set up on his first trip to CR close to 20 years ago and i go in probably once every 2 -3 months mostly because parking sucks in their strip mall location
    was in early Nov. because i'd remembered he lived in Spain for a year and wanted to pick his brain on places to see
    he told me he was going to CR that month and we laughed about stuff, dude was always smiling and in a good mood
    as you probably guessed by now he's no longer with us and passed at 58
    the guy was tall and fit, ran 2 miles a day, didn't do drugs, eat sugar or salt if he could avoid it
    on Christmas eve he was supposed to go to his brothers and they ended up finding him dead on the floor in the middle of getting dressed
    the autopsy showed he had a massive heart attack because cholesterol had closed all the arteries to his heart
    when i asked the brother if he went for checkups he said no he hated the doctor and i can relate because most of us do
    for the longest time i didn't go either and recently had 3 polyps removed that were pre cancerous
    take bp and cholesterol meds every day that i really don't like and wish i didn't need for the last couple of years
    thing is its NOT an option to not go once you're over 50 or you're playing Russian roulette w your life
    if any one of you here is reading this and haven't gone to see your doctor please do it now
    the man didn't have to die so soon and a lot of people are going to miss him, i know i will
    i told his brother i'd fill in until they found the right guy to get behind the register so the devil might be slinging tacos for a few
    at least he got to get that last trip down south to see the CR beauties

    Not that this is any kind of insurance policy, but although strattled with Afib, heart failure, hypertension, tinnitus, gout, etc., etc., the highest cholesterol reading I ever had is 152.
    Now, I don't get it at all, but written across my substantially thick medical file in my primary physician's office is : "cholesterol is not a problem ".
    I
    guess you either have a propensity for it or not.
    I grew up eating Italian food and English food, and I'm sure high cholesterol were probably words they never even thought twice about.
    But piled it on just about single every meal and afters. So...
    Gotta go now.
    Going to Clifton....

    The reasons why the Dodgers behaved the way they did during the off season are in a document, or documents, are at Andy's house, in a locked garage.
    With his Corvette.

    “Doctor” Jill Biden does not understand the context.

    Have seen a couple of fun movies recently
    The unbearable weight of massive talent is just an awesome self effacing Nick Cage flick that defies explanations and should be seen w a nice buzz

    1922 Is a cool horror type King movie I enjoyed and no virtue signaling!

    Thanks for the info...sounds mysterious.
    Considering some of his previous posts, you don't want to...but you can't help worrying about his health.

    A Los Angeles judge on Tuesday declared that porn performer Ron Jeremy is mentally incompetent to stand trial on dozens of rape and sexual assault counts.

    tomorrow is the 3 year anniversary of Kobe's death and apparently our local Chatsworth brewery will have the statue of Kobe and Gigi on display
    its the same one on display at the crash site but in deference to the families they move it on the anniversary i guess
    818 brewery 8951 Desoto Ave. 91311 says it unveils at 7pm

    2020 sucked. Kobe's death, fake WS win, pLandemic, and a stolen election all in the same year.
