  1. Been replaced by Norteñios, Sureños, Crips, and Bloods.
  2. Camp Pendleton was where my dad was discharged in '47. He and mom lived in Oceanside for a short time, then bought a place in Vista.
  3. September 26, 1856 Some 2,000 men from rival Chinese tongs, Sam Yap and Yan Woo, battled at Crimea Flat, near today’s Chinese Camp. They fought with pitchforks, rakes and mining and farming tools as others watched. Guns were not allowed. Four men were killed and many wounded before lawmen ended it.

  4. Exactly. So if you don't care about what's done in European countries you are saying that you don't care what's done in the US.
  5. Like it or not, most of our history, law, and tradition is based on European traditions. Of course, since chocolate came from the New World, and there is some evidence that a chocolate sauce and some form of corn cake/bread came from Mexico, through Texas, Spanish Louisiana, and up into the Tennessee Valley and Appalachia, you could make a case that chocolate and bread, or even grits, is an American food that made its way to Europe and was repatriated.
  6. A lot of European countries have versions of chocolate on bread for breakfast.
  7. Trying to give the appearance of Doing Something!!!©® without accomplishing anything. This way the Big Ds can whine about the RAAAAcist GOP not wanting common sense gun laws.
  8. From True West FB page Did stagecoach travel have different classes of ticket? Some stagecoach companies had three classes. First class rode all the way; second class had to get out and walk on steep grades; third class passengers not only had to walk, but also push on the hills. Crossing the sand dunes west of Yuma, Arizona Territory, passengers had to ride the hurricane deck of a mule, hence the name “Jackass Mail.” Whatever class of ticket these pioneers had, they faced a tough journey while traveling on this stagecoach from Deadwood, Dakota Territory, circa 1880.
  9. Somehow I can't think of being irritated at enough time to cook a Thanksgiving Dinner between pitches as "instant gratification." Yes, the officials could have stopped the full changes in uniform by the batter after every pitch, but they didn't. I've become resigned to the DH rule, as stupid as I think it is. I'm hoping they drop the limited pickoffs, or raise it to a "common sense" number like 10. Also, allow the shift. From what I saw of it a good batsman could exploit it and it helped the offense as often as it did the defense. Also, the commissioner and his sycophants need to get out of the mindset that high scoring is automatically exciting. Watching a well fought 0-0 game in the bottom of the 9th, 2 on, 2 out, full count pitch is one of the most exciting things in pro sports.
  10. If you watch the Instagram video you can figure out most of it just from the visual presentation. Basically, you simmer a pork knuckle/shank in a broth until it's falling off the bone. Pull it apart, put the meat into a loaf pan, add some of the fat and broth, and then compress it into a loaf. Serve cold on bread or toast. Very similar to Pennsylvania Dutch Scrapple, head cheese, or such, although those usually use tongue, heart, and, of course, the whole head (which has some pretty darned good meat on it). Some variations have small pickles, carrots, onions, or other vegetables in the loaf, mostly for color.
  11. Nice Bill of Fare. Alpo, prices are in cents.
  12. Actor David McCallum, known for his role on the long-running CBS procedural “NCIS,” has died, the network said in a statement. He was 90. “He was the kindest, coolest, most patient and loving father,” his son Peter McCallum wrote in a statement from the family, provided by CBS. “He always put family before self.” McCallum died of natural causes surrounded by his family at New York Presbyterian Hospital, CBS said. “David was a gifted actor and author, and beloved by many around the world,” the network’s statement read. “He led an incredible life, and his legacy will forever live on through his family and the countless hours on film and television that will never go away. We will miss his warmth and endearing sense of humor that lit up any room or soundstage he stepped onto, as well as the brilliant stories he often shared from a life well-lived.” Born in Scotland, McCallum got his big break in the US (after a number of roles in British television) in the 1960s spy series “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.,” co-starring as agent Illya Kuryakin opposite Robert Vaughn’s suave spy Napoleon Solo. McCallum earned a pair of Emmy nominations for the show, and working steadily thereafter, including roles in the films “The Great Escape” and “A Night to Remember.” He also starred in a memorable episode of the eerie sci-fi anthology series “The Outer Limits,” “The Sixth Finger,” playing an ordinary man who volunteers to undergo evolutionary advancement at accelerated speed. McCallum returned to television in a starring role in the 1975 NBC series “The Invisible Man,” but the show, despite its then-breakthrough special effects, lasted a single season. His improbable last act in TV came with the CBS crime procedural “NCIS.” McCallum played chief medical examiner Donald “Ducky” Mallard, an eccentric and skilled professional who served as a patriarch to the show’s investigators. McCallum is survived by his wife of 56 years Katherine McCallum, three sons (Paul McCallum, Valentine McCallum and Peter McCallum), his daughter Sophie McCallum and eight grandchildren. https://www.cnn.com/2023/09/25/entertainment/david-mccallum-dead/index.html
  13. I'm watching the Padres v. Giants game and the talking heads start talking about length of games. In 2021, according to them, there were 350+ 9 inning games that ran 3 1/2 hours or more, this year there have been none. I have to say that other than the runner on 2nd to start off in extra innings, and the limits on pick off throws, I can't say that I don't like the new rules. Pace of the game is a bit quicker, but I don't seem to really notice. Nice to have most games end after about 2 1/2 or 2 3/4 hours. (yeah, I know, "Professional sports are a waste of time!" "I haven't watched pro sports since 1947!" "I'd give up my guns before watching a baseball game!")
  14. In a way, it is. I don't know how the Instagram translator works, but it comes up with some....interesting.....substitutions. Usually I'll take a shot, have Lens copy the text, and go to other translation sites to see if they make sense. I've also noticed that the translation I get on my phone is different than the translation I get on my desktop.
  15. I tried to look up information about Mary Fay Pendleton all that came up on Google, aside from the Find a Grave page, were about the school named for her in Oceanside, CA. The only photo of her was the one in the OP.
