What Were the Best Commercials of Super Bowl LI

Besides the upcoming movie trailers, the automobile industry came up with most of the best. Honda’s CRV’s talking yearbook and 84 Lumber’s immigration story were the most inspirational.

Kia’s ad with Melissa McCarthy scored big in USA Today’s annual meter. http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ad-meter/super-bowl/2017/02/06/melissa-mccarthy-kia-ad-captures-2017-ad-meter-title/97540302/

“If that car is a Buick, my kid is Cam Newton,” remarks a parent as his child morphs into last year’s Super Bowl quarterback.

Avacados fr0m Mexico featured a member of a Secret Society streaming their activities during a meeting on his cell phone.

Busch beer placed a man disturbing nature while opening up his hissing beer can.

It’s a 10 Hair Care had over a dozen attention-getting styles flashing during their 30 second spot.

The Fabreze commercial reminded viewers to get the air freshioners set up for the rush-to-the-bathroom halftime break.

Skittles showed a young Romeo tossing candies through a second floor window not only to his love but members of her entire family.

This year, for once in the 51 year history of the Super Bowl, the game itself was the highlight of the day! Whether you like the Patriots or not, you have to admit that their comeback was the greatest comeback of all times.

Today: A Higher Meaningfulness for 4-20

GOLDEN GATE PARK, S.F. – April 20, 2016, 1200 hrs. PDT –

‘man, did you catch the buzz?!?

“… and sure, I try a rice crispy AND a bit of brownie.”

 

‘Dunt have pictures to prove it, but we were there in Sharon Meadow of Golden Gate Park; USA – 4:20 p.m. comes a little late in the sunny day, but you can light up at the same time, man.

There are always first round March Madness upsets

Watch out for the Bulldogs, Pirates, and Rams.

The ultimate college basketball champion is as wide open as it has been for decades as no team starts the tourney with 3, 2, 1 losses, or unbeaten. The East bracket will be the most contested: North Carolina will meet challenges getting through to the Final Four.

Although #1 vs. #16 upsets are rare, the matchup of state rivals Hampton and University of Virginia is a game that has to be played. You can imagine how pumped up the Hampton Pirates will be with their two senior guards averaging over 17 points per game.

http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=espn:14977237

Our #2-15 possible upset is the Wildcats of Weber State and Xavier. The Wildcats can pull it off if guard Jeremy Senglin can continue scoring 44.2% on 3-point shots.

Look at this #3-14 seeded possibility it is the red hot Fresno State Bulldogs, fresh from a conference tournament win versus the higher seeded Utah Utes. The Bulldogs have two senior guards that could spell trouble.

“March Madness”

Next at 4 vs 13 is Hawai’i Rainbow Warriors (27-5) and the California Bears (23-10), who just lost an assistant coach. The Bears play good defense but the Warriors are better at forcing turnovers. The Warriors are coming off a conference tournament win, too.

There may be two 5-12 upsets this week. The most frequent upsets during the first round often are with the #5 against the #12. The Yale Bulldogs are riding high and will be up against the jet-lagged Baylor Bears in Rhode Island.

The number six seeds should all pass the first round: Arizona, Notre Dame, Texas, and Seton Hall.

Watch for a 7 vs. 10 upset this Friday afternoon. VCU (24-10) can keep their winning streak going against Oregon State (19-12).

The first upset of the tournament may be in Des Moines. Connecticut Huskies (#9) can handle the (#8 seeded) Colorado Buffalos. The hot Huskies are coming off a conference tournament championship. U Conn’s front line is bigger at 7-foot, 6-7, and 6-7.

Family Comfort Foods – Cookbook Recommendation

This cookbook has been in the works for decades. As a “latchkey kid” long before the term was popularized, I was preparing meals for myself from age ten or so. I would like to be able to claim that I learned the kitchen basics at my mother’s elbow, but the truth is I found my way reading cookbooks and through trial-and-error.

Confessions of An Oenophile = An American Family Cookbook

When I inherited my mother’s and grandmother’s recipes on index cards, I took it upon myself to reconstruct my family’s kitchen legacy which had previously only been preserved in the hearts and memories of our family and friends.

Thus, a fair amount of contemporary thought and planning has gone into this cookbook, and it has been shaped by my own tastes and interests. For example, it has been my goal to put together a practical family cookbook using wine as an important ingredient in a wide variety of menus. I live in the wine country of northern California, where wine is an important influence in the whole culture. I have therefore taken our old family meals and embellished them accordingly.

I have also tended to focus on “comfort foods” which, though some people accuse this use of food as being inherently unhealthy, can be made increasingly beneficial if only the cook will think about how home-grown produce and local ingredients can be integrated and experiment with them. I therefore have included recipes which use those foods and ingredients that are available, not only to us in California, but in the Midwestern, Southern and the Atlantic states.

We are entering an era in which rising transportation costs and food safety concerns will likely change our ways with food.  These recipes limit the mandatory use of gourmet, exotic, and hard-to-find ingredients. I have, in fact, organized the book according to the seasons of the year when local ingredients are more likely to be “in season.”

I can recall during college that my dear future wife tried baking homemade wheat bread. Too bad she got confused between baking powder and baking soda; we ended up using the loaves as doorstops. Remember to have a sense of humor in the kitchen – no matter what may happen.

7 + 8 = 2015 Hangover (But this living in the past, rather than in thee moment, is mindblowing)

Hadn’t had a hit all morning

It is true; I haven’t had a hit all day.

St. Mateo, pray for us.

It is a day to be on time in St. Palo.

You’ve probably heard very little about Saint Palo Alto the patron saint of Stanford University. Seems like ol’ Mrs. Leland Stanford moonlighted with her Presbyterian church in Menlo Park.

It may be best to be back among the brethren to living in the present. Remember, don’t space it out. Got the women waiting. Time to reveal all. Please try to be modest, sexy, hot, discrete, and understandable.

9:29 a.m. and all is a little blurred suddenly at this moment.

Good thing that I took a hit before leaving the train depot. Some sort of Sativa lozenge… honey-lemon they call it. Very tasty, fruitful, with a pleasant grassy taste.

The plan is simple. Heal thyself by the grace of God.

Which Way To Go?

Which Way To Go?

Take energy in an efficient way and rechannel that into the plan. Use 10% of brain cells to manage the execution.

Upon arrival at St. Palo we stumbled into the esteemed Opportunity Center for the Homeless. No way to see a counselor, so staff urged me to hangout and wait for something or other to happen; waste time.

Not to be deterred, I rambled out the door toward the ladies’ medical office. Time. OK. On time.

 

But this living in the past, rather than in thee moment, is mindblowing. Even if my consciousness was not too stoned, maybe I would not be so concerned and perhaps very, very, worried.
