: Micky" I can't belive you really got the product the way it was pictured. It had to be that the ice cream product was hard to srew up as they do in all other Ads. I like pennywise but he can't survive against the evil black heart clown than is killing our children over the net hundred years. I can't find THE GHOST fabulous articles anymore and my workers at the Print Shop need his brillant mind and more quotes on the evil clown of Mcfilthy's. M. Bacon I enjoy your wit it is by far up with that of Hanks the drunken drawfs mentor as the most intellegent human beings on the discussion board. Good to hear from you and long lived the clown.

I don't know what The Ghost is up to these days, but yeah I did get that product as close to perfect as humanly possible. It's refrigerated vanilla yogurt with strawberries and blueberries in the middle and granola on top. This isn't a sales pitch for it, it's just an FYI. But it was a good alternative to soft serve ice cream.

As for people "being killed" by McD's and fast food in general, again, if you overdo any product there is a chance you could die due to that later in life. But I remember reading a Q & A from a female senior citizen who passed the century mark. She says she always hated vegetables and to this day refuses to eat them, spuds (with plenty of gravy!!) excepted. Ah yeah, and she loves her meat. A lot of the century-plus seniors mentioned several vices all their lives and no exercise. One smoked cigars every day and bragged about having food with plenty of lard!! True, a lot of fast food is not healthy, but perhaps many of today's children will build a tolerance to it, and live to a ripe old age. I can't declare that they will or won't.

Is a red balance sheet McD Corp's one and only objective? I'm extremely sure that it is. But I'm getting on with my life as best as I can, and not brooding over that likely fact. I'm even moreso positive that the dealer I bought my truck from wants as much of my $$ as he can swindle from me. I recently got a notice for my 30K mile scheduled maintenance, which listed many more "needed services" than the Ford service schedule recommended. I sent a Xerox of that notice to Ford Viewpoint, along with a very unpositive survey response regarding my dealer (My truck is great, however). I also let the dealership know that I am on to them, and that I would mention it on the survey, which was a promise carried out. Today, I had the "City Garage" and Discount Tire (who did the scheduled tire rotation and balance) take care of the scheduled services, per the factory, and I saved $80 in the process. I doubt that my dealer will give a shit one way or the other, and I'm sure they'll blow me off, but at least bitching them out and bitching about them got it off my chest. I feel better.

As for your mission to get the "evil doings" out, you have a right to speak, print, and publish your mind, and I'm positive you'll do fine without the Ghost's help. But the franchises that do their job will continue to get my business, and a QP is actually good when done right, ditto the fries. I know you strongly disagree with me on that, but I call it like I see it. Lately, I'm not eating much heavy food, this heatwave has suppressed my appetite quite a bit, and I've been having my share of "the runs" if you know what I mean. I'll probably be famished later in autumn for my favorite heavy treats.
