Come get your Fried Cheese Curds. It was recently announced that fast food giant McDonalds would be offering this on their Wisconsin location menus   Now this morning I was presented with the following –






At this point I’m not sure if the Cheese curds are being offered or not.  Thankfully the closest McDonalds is 25+ Miles away and there is no pressing need to go try them out.

An Outdoor Shooting Range.

Chicago is dealing with historic gun violence in 2016.  This past Thanksgiving weekend it was reported that there remain a total of 70 individuals shot.  What happened to Chicago’s tough gun laws?  Chicago has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country.


According to the New York Times

Not a single gun shop can be found in this city because they are outlawed.  Handguns were banned in Chicago for decades, too, until 2010, when the United States Supreme Court ruled that was going too far, leading city leaders to settle for restrictions some describe as the closest they could get legally to a ban without a ban. Despite a continuing legal fight, Illinois remains the only state in the nation with no provision to let private citizens carry guns in public.

Make your own judgment  on how well this is working.

Never Let the Facts get in the way of a good story.

And a potential Presidential Candidate is as baffled about the story line as the statist press.2016-11-29

Retail Marketing.

I found this Sale sign in a local store.  It is certainly an interesting approach.

I presume that the store employees don’t want to deal with these items for inventory.20161128_122220

Coffee and Retail Marketing.

NowWe live in a small town and there are plenty of interesting retail situation or examples.

I saw the following at our local grocery store.

Ground coffee in an approximately 12oz package is $10.99










Now just above this shelf of ground coffee is the following.

This is coffee from the same coffee company and this is coffee beans.  Not ground coffee.  This coffee is simply roasted and then bagged.  No extra work has been done with the whole bean coffee.  It’s not ground, simply roasted beans and then bagged.

Can someone explain  why the ground beans are .76/bag more expensive than the more processed ground coffee bags?

If I buy a bag of whole bean coffee, I take it home and grind it for my coffee maker.  Hint here, I’m doing the work that the company has done processing the ground coffee bags.

Thanks but no thanks Backroads Coffee.  I won’t pay more for doing your work.20161128_123814
