Easter - 4 Huge Reasons to Celebrate

Celebrate Easter - 4 Huge Reasons

Easter: From co-opted ideas to the Risen Lord 

Easter is Ishtar? Nope. This concept has existed over the years, proponents saying the name changed for the convenience of the church. This makes the Holy event pagan in nature. Wrong.

And what is the whole bunny thing about? And eggs, what gives with that? People only attending church tice a year, Christmas, and Easter Sunday. A lot of the narrative is just gas. Some items hold some truth, but here we're looking at smoothing the road. Easing the disputes, all that sort of stuff.

First of all

Ishtar is not Easter image

Ishtar is not Easter. Taking a read over at Scientific American, they state, in bullet points, a good many refutations of the ties between the two. They also expand on this a little further down.

2 Amazing Jack in the Box Chicken Sandwiches

Jack in the Box - 2 Amazing Chicken Sandwiches

Can a burger chain make awesome chicken sandwiches? Two sandwiches worth crossing the road for.

The story of Jack in the Box goes back many years to San Diego, California. I'm not going into their history, as that is not the focus of this article. However, like most things, some of Jack's history will be needed to clarify the present. We will offer some links for further reading at the bottom of this article.

One of Many

The Golden State. California is known as this for many reasons. There's the gold rush of 1849, there are aspects of business that make the moniker apropos. Disneyland. Hollywood. Defense industries, and on and on.
So far as food, McDonald's, Del Taco, In-N-Out Burger, Wienerschnitzel, Taco Bell, See's Candies, Denny's, IHOP, Baker's, Carl's Jr, and many more! It should come as no surprise that Jack in the Box is California Born as well. The benchmark for chain fast food burgers is Mc Donald's, of course. The benchmark for delicious burgers is In-N-Out, like it or not.

Identity Crisis

Jack in the Box has a huge advantage in that their name does not identity a particular product. To to get to the that point name recognition is strong enough that a compony no longer needs to identify with a particular product or genre is a boon. In-N-Out Burgers? Burgers. Chick-Fil-A? Chicken.

Insane Gas Prices - 3 Reasons

Gas Prices - We're all in the Same Boat

When it comes to gas prices, I have seen and heard so many conflicting reports over the last year, we're running out of  oil, we have centuries of oil, etc. However, one thing is certain: Shutting down the Keystone XL oil pipeline was a huge mistake. This mistake has spurred inflation, raised prices on virtually every need and want that every person in this country has. It has helped devalue the buying power of every person in this nation. And all for what, a political statement?

There are 3 reasons for high gas prices:

  • Shortsighted Ignorance
  • Politics as usual
  • Media hype and coverage

You can see in this linked article that Newsweek absolutely called it! They said gas prices would climb!

3D Doritos - what are they thinking?

First of all, apologies for taking so long to write any articles. Ol' Bucky has been busy with the day job and making review videos daily on TikTok, Instagram and Youtube. I tried the 3D Doritos recently, and well, here's an article!

So, what is going on with Frito Lays and their Doritos? Particularly the 3d Doritos? Well, unless you have been hiding under a log for a while, you'll have noticed that Frito Lays has been getting really inventive of late. What with their Flamin' Hot coating going onto virtually everything, and weird flavors like pickle chips, and Tapatio Doritos. You have to give Pepsico kudos! The parent company of Fritos Lay is definitely thinking outside the box. But, is it a good thing, all in all?

First of all it's fairly common now
