more strike crap
11/25/03, 5:06am
graphic
Now the teamsters are not gonna deliver food from the distribution centers. This includes good ol' Ralphs. So now, getting stuff from the stores, that was already a pain in the butt, is going to be that much harder!

I dunno what they thing they are doing, but this makes me LESS inclined to support the strikers than before. Won't it be wonderful, when all this is over, to see their smiling over-paid faces once again? Maybe it is time to sell some on-line t-shirts that say "PHUCK the UNION..I wanna eat!"

I'll buy one, and wear it as I cross the picket line to go in the store...

My dog is very picky when it comes to treats, but she goes absolutely nuts over this yogurt based ice cream treat made just for dogs called Frosty Paws. It's pretty damn hard to find, since few places carry it, but I haven't been able to find it anywhere since the strike began. That just pisses me off.

But, if it wasn't for that, the strike probably wouldn't bother me much. I got fed up with the big supermarkets about a year ago and have done most of my shopping at Trader Joe's since then. There are some things I can't get there, though.

I went to Trader Joes for the first time in a looooong time when the strike had just begun. Besides being incredibly small, it lacked a lot of stuff that appreciate. The "produce" was limited to a small section of "dried fruits."

The fish looked like it had been frozen for weeks.

Needless to say, I walked out with nothing.

Now, the Ralphs in Porter Ranch? As Bill undoubtedly knows... geesh! That was the best supermarket that I think I've ever been to (picked up some last minute stuff there last night). Now THERE's an excellent reason to live there!

Really? I wonder if they vary much from store to store. I go to the one in Toluca Lake (it's the only one I've been in), and the store is small, but they have a pretty good selection of produce. They have a lot more than just dried fruits. I can't comment on their fish selection, though, since I've never bought that there.

My main gripe with Ralph's, which was the reason I switched to TJ's, was that it takes so damn long to get through the checkout line. The one in Burbank is very popular, so it gets crowded, and the checkers are pretty slow. I never get out of there in less than a half hour...

I just have two problems with moving to Floriday. 1) There are no mountains, and 2) my mother lives there.

Ok, so I only have one problem with moving there -- my mother lives there...

"Floriday"?!? Jeez, I can spell better than that. What's wrong with me?

I find that with Trader Joe's, you really have to find a good one..some of the smaller ones have nothing, yet yesterday my parents were talking about a brand new one near them (in Culver City) that is huge, lots of aisle space and lots of products.

My big beef with Trader Joes is that they parking lots all seem to be REALLY small. The newer ones are starting to put in more spaces and the one nearest us is in a strip mall so there is a ton of parking..but I can think of two others very close to us that are perm traffic jams.

Yea, they are TRYING to keep things on the shelves but as a regular shopper there, I can tell you that LOTS of stuff is missing. I think the secret to any Ralph's shopping these days is to get there early as they stock the shelves at night.

I dunno..there are times..like many weekends..where that place just PACKS up.

My daughter now works at the In-N-Out over there and lemme tell you, those guys are doing a land office business! (Double-Double, animal style and extra crispy fries please!)

BTW, have you seen those new "villas" they just opened up over here? (Called "Tuscany"). I dunno what they think a villa is, but I have seen single wide trailers with more space!! (The wife and I like to see the new developments...see how the neighbors are gonna live and get some decorating ideas..some of those over there are VERY nice..but these "villa's" could be someone's large closet.)

Thanks for the tip.....Things are getting way out of hand now. I'm having trouble finding the simplest items and *I* don't cook!

Yeah IF they can find a non teamsters truck to deliver the goods. Geez! A friend owns a huge company that teamsters deliver goods to every day. He informed them he wouldn't accept goods delivered by teamsters until they stopped making his life miserable at the grocery store!

And how much are they asking for these large closets? Bet it's way out of site.

Those books rock! We've been getting them for years and they pay for themselves after only a few uses.

How about we get together and try one of the restaurants in there?

Hi, Bill,

I know it gets crowded up there. The Walmart gets nuts!

It still is a very nice, though over-priced area. But then, just about any area like it in S. Cal now is the same deal.

Let's meet one day for a double-double

The Toluca Lake TJ's has a small parking lot, and that's always been my biggest complaint about it. I recently heard about a new one in Burbank (Alameda & San Fernando), so yesterday I decided to check that one out. They have a huge parking lot that they share with the chain drug store next door, so parking is no problem at all. The store is about twice the size of the Toluca Lake TJ's, too, though their produce section was pretty weak. Overall, I liked it. I'll probably be going to that one from now on instead of Toluca Lake.

Several years ago I got in line behind a woman who was doing the coupon thing. It took about 45 minutes for them to check her out, and I waited instead of switching to a different line just because I wanted to see how she ended up. She had two shopping carts full of groceries. I don't remember the numbers any more, but her initial total was something around $200-300. After they rang up all her coupons and discounts, her final bill was less than $20. I was impressed. But, not enough so to do that myself. It looked like too much work. I do use coupons, but not to that extreme.

It's ok. I'm happier this way. She's one of those over zealous, ultra religious, preachy types, and the constant sermons are just annoying. I've learned it's much best to just avoid her as much as possible.

I believe it was $365k for the cheapest one. And you DO get a community pool. And this "Villa" idea...I dunno..they take like 6 of these and point the front doors at each other and the garages are on the outside...but the area where the doors point is not much more than a sidewalk. You would think they would have a little courtyard or something..but nope.

Yea, we have purchased a few over the years for fundraisers for schools and sports teams. Pretty good if you eat out a lot. I remember one year when I was working in the Radio Biz and we were eating out a lot...and that thing saved us a ton of dough.

Now though, we don't eat out much..mainly because I have the time to play in the kitchen. And lately, because I have been rolling my own sushi, we haven't even gone to see Danny lately! (sushi)

You must've been behind my wife. Actually, it doesn't take that long these days..they just scan the coupons. Also, you have to work the system. My wife doesn't just use a coupon..she waits till the item itself is on sale. That way, a $5 box of Capt'n Crunch is 2 for a buck after all the deals are done...not bad!

With this strike though, not a lot of product is on the shelves so it does make it rather difficult for her. Also, it is very tough to use coupons and save when it is only a single person. As a family, it is manditory though.

In this society it's improper to not like your mother it seems.
Everybody should and how dare us not. However when push comes to shove I would bet most of us have issues there.

My mother is long gone but the issues still hang around.

Hey! They should offer wireless DSL. One for each group. Just put the thing in the middle and split the cost.

Sounds good

On the hot tub thing, many years ago when my cousin was single, he used to tell dates that if they wanted to use his hot tub, they would have to do it sans suit. He told the girls, "lint from bathing suits clogs the filter."

Ok dokes! Sounds good.

It will probably have to be January as December is absolutely nuts for me. We have events every weekend for work and then a day camp over Christmas week, which means I am probably working Christmas Eve and Day. Part of my family celebrates Christmas, so I am going to try to get off, but I am not counting on it. Also, no comp time and no extra pay....gee, I love my job.

Yup... those are tight. Marie and I saw those probably six months ago... they were decorated very nicely, though... and the price was reasonably good at that time, considering how crazy the prices have gone in that area in the last year.

Have you ever been to the one on Ventura Blvd. near Lankershim? That one is enormous, too, and even has an underground parking lot. You take an elevator from inside the store to get down to the lower level. Makes it nice to do your shopping when it's raining, since you never have to get wet.

I don't have a lot of problems with my mother..but my wife's mother is a different story! Those two barely talk and when they do, it is not pretty. My wife sees my parents as more "parents" to her than her own.

Yea, it's pretty big..they call it Ralph's Marketplace. I think it is Ralphs attempt to go head to head with Pavillions and Gelsons. Nice store with lots of little extras that are great if you are a "foodie".

However, even in the best of times, the produce is better at Whole Foods or Gelson's and I simply do NOT buy fish there...too many times we have gotten fish from there and it has not been good. (That is a Gelson's/Whole Foods item for us.)

And when it comes to steak, you can't beat Smart & Final. Less than 3 bucks a pound for sirloin (in the LARGE cut) is very good.

Hrmm....MIGHT have been a differnt place...Tuscany has only been open for a month or so. You might be thinking about Promenade which is right behind Toys R Us. Those are duplex homes with a common wall. Actually, they have some space..a LOT more than Tuscany. Next time you are up here, go up Porter Ranch road and turn LEFT on the "new" Corbin. Can't miss em from there.

Strange this subject has come up now. I spent all day yesterday in the emergency room with my very elderly father. He was sent home awaiting test results. Not a pleasant time.

We don't eat a lot of red meat but once in a while a very small steak hits the spot. I've found these frozen steaks called Pepper Steaks which come 4 to a pack. When grilled they have virtually no fat drippings and are so tender you don't need a knife hardly. That and my George Forman works great.

You're right... I'm talking about the ones behind Toys R Us... but Marie and I did see the ones that you are talking about a few months ago... I remember that it was an entrance on the left side... leads up a hill and there was a small parking lot up the hill to the left, and a small enclave of houses.

Those weren't as small as the ones that I was originally referencing, but I remember that we weren't impressed with those houses at all (other than location).

Some Costco steaks, marinated in Mr. Yoshida's sauce overnight... then rotissieried... I swear... you'll want to have red meat every night.

Sorry to heard about your dad... hope the tests turn out okay.

There's a woman I work with who's the same with her parents. She hasn't spoken to them in years. But, in her case, it's the parents who don't like her...

Sorry to hear it. I hope it isn't anything too serious!

I never really got along with either of my parents until they got divorced. After that, my dad became a completely different person, and for the last few years of his life was more like a best friend to my brother and me.

My dad just told me about a retired friend of his that had worked as a produce buyer for markets for years and years. Now, he crosses the picket line to make some extra dough. (He is now a "scab") He says the people in the stores now know nothing..they are just warm bodies. But he doesn't care..he is making some extra xmas bucks.

Actually COSTCOS frozen steaks suck! I found these at Albertsons. Not in a box but a bag. No need to fiddle with them with the marinade or anything. Just heat up the grill and cook for 5....very good.

Thanks for your good wishes. Anxious to find out what the doc says today. He ended up back in ER yesterday afternoon.

Okay...it's okay for us to not like our parents but the buck stops there! Any parent that doesn't like his child is way out of line IMHO. You made em...it's your fault...part of that is to love em no matter what.

I think when I moan "George" in the middle of the night that's his first clue. And when I pull him out and plug him in he, for sure, understands the relationship. LOL!

Do what I said... I PROMISE you that you won't have the same opinion. You can get Mr. Yoshida's marinade in a two pack at Costco. Thaw the steaks, marinade em in the fridge with Mr. Yoshida's overnight... then rotisserie em (if you have a rotisserie).

I like 'em a bit rare.

Marie and I got crazy about two months ago and snagged some Costco steaks and some Costco lobster. The steak was SO good, that I found myself cutting small pieces and chewing for long periods of time just to enjoy it.

I don't even do that at Lawry's.

I like that attitude... but, conversely, I feel that any child who doesn't at least respect their parents for the simple fact of being born is out of line times a thousand.

I got some bits of "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" a few weeks ago (Sidney Poitier, Katherine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy). I hadn't really seen it before.

Poitier gives a speech to his Dad near the end of the film (the fathers of an interrracial couple do not like the idea). Poitier goes off on how he doesn't need to respect his father SOLELY for his having brought him into the world and for going to work everyday and supporting him. His father was SUPPOSED to do this, he says.

While this made me think for a few moments, I rationalized that this was just plain wrong. Sure, once you are brought into the world, your parents are SUPPOSED to take care of you... but - to me - simply for that... they deserve unconditonal honor and respect.

It goes to the expression... "I may not like you, but I'll always love you."

Actually, I mispoke there. I don't think it's so much that they don't like her as they've just given up on her out of frustration. Several years ago she shacked up with a real loser. He refuses to get a job and is sponging off her. To make things worse, he's also an alcoholic and beats her fairly frequently. Her parents tried everything they could think of to convince her to leave the jerk, but she won't (and recently married him), and now they don't talk to her any more.

This year, for my wife's birthday, her mother called ME.

"Bill, would you please extend birthday wishes to Amy". That was the conversation.

My wife has reached out to her mother many times and had her arm chopped every time. Now they just ignore each other.

I agree...it goes both ways. Have a friend whose son turned out to be a homeless drug addict. The poor fellow has moved to TEXAS to get away from him. He's broken into his house and stolen everything a number of times....What a nightmare...but he still loves him...from a distance.

Now there's a challenge! Time to just dump your parent. You can't take responsibility for another grown ups actions.

Rob I'm seeing something strange in each post here...For instance in Lonnies post the "elf" in myself is blue and underlined. Is anybody else seeing that or just me?

What was your response? Obviously her only reason for calling was to be petty and I wouldn't buy into it. I would say "Sorry you'll have to deliver that yourself!" And hang up.

And I would not tell Amy she called. It only hurts her and makes the situation worse. Someone has to stop the childish behaviour. Make it you.

A "rotisserie" is like a "George." It does ALL the work. All you do is pour some Mr. Yoshida's into a ziploc... stick the meat in there... then, the next day, stick the meat into the rottisserie... voila.

Eek... you really got ahold of something strange, didn't ya? That isn't happening on this end... very weird.

You should click the Elf. I'm curious if it takes you to, say, the Elf movie web site.

I'm not seeing that. Sounds like you're having some computer issues, too.

I say, "too" cuzz my desktop PC just bit the dust big time. Good thing I just bought this laptop! Everything was fine when I decided to take a shower, but when I got back to the living room, it had rebooted and was sitting at an "Invalid Parition" error. Damn thing won't boot up completely, though it acts like it's trying to. It loads about half of my toolbar icons, then comes up with an "explorer.exe has generated errors and will be shut down" message. The whole damn thing hangs at that point, but I noticed I can CTL-ALT-DEL and after about a minute the Task Manager will come up, from which I can manually launch "cmd" (after which the Task Manager generates an error, but at least the DOS prompt will still launch). And, the DOS prompt still recognizes the Compact Flash card's reader. So, now, I'm copying all my important stuff from the desktop to the laptop (slowly) 512Mb at a time, before I even try to trouble-shoot what the hell happened.

I've said this many times before, but I find myself saying it a lot more often lately: "Gawd, I hate computers!"

Good news!

I saw a thing the other night on TV saying that because of this new Human Genone thingy, (according to the guy on the tv), that we will have a cure for every known disease to mankind within 20 to 40 years!!

Cancer? Take a pill! alzhemer's? take a pill!

Then we would end up in a world full of old pharts....

Ok, you asked..but you may not like the answer.

There was yet ANOTHER warning on IE the other day that talked about that very sort of problem you are having. You see, IE has some "features" in it that allow that sort of thing to happen.

To stop it, you have a few options:


a)stop using IE and try Mozilla or Opera

b)go into the security section of IE and turn OFF things like Active X (there are web pages out there that can tell you in detail how to do this. This could cause many web site to not work as they are designed.)

c)go to an outside pop-up blocker program. These are available on the web and block the pop up before you see it.

Good luck!

Your ELF was blue and underlined here. I clicked on it and got 3 popups. First one was about dvdcopies/promo. It also kicked me out of IE.

I'm fit to be tied! Ran Ad Aware and nothing comes up.

Heh..sounds like you have a REAL problem.

P.S., found this on the web-"Click on the google button by the leftof the search window, click uninstall at the bottom of the pulldown menu."

Hope it helps.

Maybe if you retraced your steps on how to got to this point, you could look up on the web some sort of uninstall. Just a thought.

You are correct..I don't know what it is so I doubt I have had one!

Thanks Bill. I installed a second popup blocker which has stopped everything but the blue highlights within each messages. Read up on that and they keep mentioning Windows Messenger and that it shoould be removed. Tried to remove it and got threats that all my favorite programs wouldn't run if I did that. There's suppose to be a way to disable it but haven't figure that out yet.


I went to google but there is no "button" to the left of the search window.

I know exactly what I did. I clicked on the information bar for the new Google tool bar and read everything about it. When I closed that window all hell broke loose.

Like I said I DID NOT download anything....but found two ad programs actually installed on my computer which I removed.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrr! As I type I am being bombarded with popups that are killed but foul up my cursor for a second.

Windows Messenger doesn't have anything to do with IE, so I doubt it's related to the problems you're having, but you should shut it down, anyway.

Look for an "Administrative Tools" section in your Start Menu, and select "Services" from there (you might be able to find "Services" in the Control Panel, too). Find the "Messenger" service, right click on it, and select "Properties". Set the "Startup Type" to "Disabled", click the "Stop" button, then "Apply".
