The Republican debate

 Last night at the Ronald Reagan library in California, the Republicans had  their second presidential debate. I don’t think there was a clear front runner or somebody who broke out. It just seem to me like a lot of fighting back-and-forth and not much was accomplished. For example, Chris Christie seem to want to go after Donald Trump did not put any new ideas forward, but I don’t think he will be around much longer anyway, as it will be harder to qualify for the next debate anyway. Mike Pence reminded me of a typical politician, promising what he was gonna do but you have to remember he was there for four years, and really didn’t accomplish much either , the governor of North Dakota didn’t seem like he could even get in the debate as he was rarely called on. He had to interrupt just to get a word in. Tim Scott sounded like some southern preacher Nikki Haley didn’t bring any new ideas forward all she did was argue with Ron DeSantis , and as far as the rest of them really didn’t put any great ideas forward that we didn’t hear in the first debate. I don’t think Donald Trump will have any problem winning the Republican primary with this bunch of candidates running against him.right now he’s about 40 or more points.ahead of the nearest competitor. I don’t see that changing anytime soon unless  there’s a complete disaster for him down the road.

Seattle, Washington

 Over the weekend I watched a program about Seattle Washington. The reporter was there, asking questions of the public about that how they felt since Seattle had defunded the police department by the way crime is up in Seattle, murder, carjackings, and arm robbery.

The citizens of Seattle deserve exactly what they get. I could not believe some of the reaction this man got to his question such as do you think the police department needed to be defunded? Their answer yes some even said it needed to be disbanded completely. One gentleman was in complete denial, saying there was no problem in Seattle that he could see, and that it was all over blown.

They also showed a local reporter on the streets where he was attacked three times by crackheads, one with a hatchet and one with a knife the other one I think had a blunt instrument. So if you’re looking for a place to go for your next vacation be sure to skip Seattle Washington you may not come back and the citizens there could give a damn one way or the other whether you come there or not because they are in complete denial.

The golden dragon

 On Saturday we had to go to Slidell Louisiana for some appointments while there we decided to stop by the golden dragon Chinese buffet for lunch we have eaten there on several occasions and it’s always been good. This is the first time I have eaten there on a Saturday and they had an outstanding selection of food.

I had some baked salmon that just melted in your mouth. They had blue crabs and several different crab salads the the entire selection of food on the Buffay was excellent. If you are in Slidell, and want to have a great meal you should stopped by golden dragon very reasonably priced at about $15 a person.😀

Captain AL’S located on Lorraine Rd., Gulfport

 I recently had a late lunch at Captain AL’S in Gulfport Mississippi. It was a very pleasant experience as we arrive just in time for happy hour. Many of the appetizers are half price beer and wine, and sometimes menu items such as fresh oysters, as was in the case when we were there. I have to say the food was excellent and also the service I truly enjoyed my afternoon in  a great environment. so if you’re looking for a restaurant, to sit down and enjoy and afternoon meal, I strongly recommend Captain  AL’S also, you should go after 3 o’clock because it’s happy hour till six during the week.

Pat Obrien New Orleans

 I recently visited Pat Obrien‘s restaurant in New Orleans and I have to say it’s quite a unique experience. When you enter the restaurant you come into a beautiful courtyard where you may have your lunch or drinks a great atmosphere. If you order the famous drink the hurricane you can purchase the glass it comes in  for just a few dollars  it is a very nice designed glass and will be a plus for you in your collectibles. They also have a very reasonable menu we ate a very tasty and enjoyable meal for a total price of $32. On the appetizer menu if you order the fried oysters they only cost $14 and you get a little over a dozen. My wife had blackened redfish which was outstanding. The service there is very good the  waiters  are very knowledgeable about the menu. So if you want a very enjoyable meal in a outstanding atmosphere  check out Pat Obrien’s in the French quarter. #PatObrien‘s

Bernie Sanders

  It looks like the Democratic Party is running scared of Bernie Sanders and I think that they should be. If uncle Bernie becomes their nominee I don’t think he can beat the President of the United States with all his radical ideas.  Basically this man wants the federal government to control every aspect of your life do you really want a Washington bureaucrat to decide your future? I don’t think so. I cannot even imagine what his cabinet would look like if he won the presidential race.  How would you like AOC  making life decisions for you?  Bernie wants to bring her green deal to all of us can you imagine the chaos this would cause.   Bernie says he’s a democratic socialist I myself believe he is nothing but a communist.  These primaries in South Carolina and Nevada will tell us a lot.

Beau Rivage Casino & Buffet

 If you really want to get in the Christmas spirit you should visit the Beau Rivage  Casino their main lobby is decorated with huge nutcrackers Christmas ornaments and various Christmas scenes really put you in the spirit and is so well done. I would go in the morning then you can catch their breakfast buffet which is reasonably priced and has a great selection of breakfast foods. You can try  dishes like bananas foster or I have your omelette made to order.  There is also a great selection of pastries.  You won’t have to wait long to be served as the hostesses are very efficient as are the servers  truly professionals.  So for a unique Christmas experience visit the Beau Rivage Casino and buffet.

Hard rock casino Biloxi,Ms.

 Last week I tried the new satisfaction buffet at the hard rock casino in Biloxi Mississippi.  It was a very nice experience  I truly enjoyed it. They have completely redone the dining room and it is a nice updated and modern version. They have a new chef who I believe came over from the palace casino and the food is excellent with a great variety to choose from.  They have several discounts you can use just check at the players club when you go in. I believe you will enjoy this buffet so give it a try.

Cafe Du Monde

 When visiting New Orleans a stop at the Cafe Du Monda is a must.   The best time to go there would be after breakfast otherwise you would probably have to wait about 20 minutes to get a table. The average weight is about 10 minutes but most of the times that I’ve been there I’ve been able to get a table right away it just depends on your luck  they are open 24 hours a day they only close on Christmas day or if they have a hurricane in New Orleans . The café was established in 1862 and has been going strong ever sense. They are famous  for their coffee and  beignets.  I myself prefer there coffee au lait  but you can get regular coffee also. The café produces about 30,000 beignets a day.  They are located directly across from Jackson Square the heart of the French Quarter.  If you are a coffee lover I’m sure you will enjoy your visit to Cafe Du Monda enjoy.
