Doritos inventor Arch West dies at age 97

Image
Arch West, a Frito-Lay executive and the genius inventor of Doritos, has died. He was 97.

West, who died last week in Dallas, came up with the idea behind Doritos when he was on a family vacation in Southern California, according to an obituary in the Washington Post. In 1966, the original crunchy, triangular corn chips were released nationally. Doritos became one of Frito-Lay's bestselling snack foods, still true today.

West's family plans to pay tribute to his love for the snack with what seems like a fitting goodbye by tossing Doritos into his grave at his memorial service Saturday.

Good Luck and Thank You

Wow did last night come as a shock? Sure there has been a lot of talks to let Ozzie  Guillen go but I still ask why? For the past 8 years, he has put the White Sox in a much better place with two American League Central titles and  one World Series championship.
 Sure everybody loves to get down on him for his loony and wild antics but that's what made him so great. You watch he will take his next team to the world series within the next few years. Guillen is a great manager and I wish him the best its been a great run.
If you ask me what made this team fall apart its was getting rid of the 2005 brotherhood. When they traded Scott Rolen and Joe Credi the team was never the same. This sure was not Ozzie's fault. 
Here is a long cold winter of wondering. And to Ozzie as a fan of yours from the '80 til now, I thank you! And maybe Kenny should be next.

Getting ready for fall

Lainey woke up so excited about the first day of autumn and soon started to get upset. When I asked what was wrong she said: "why are the leafs still on the tree's?"

Happy 70th Birthday Aquaman

Image
Aquaman's debut appearance came  September 25, 1941--More Fun Comics #73.
My Love for Aquaman came from the early 1970's cartoon that played every morning before school on the Ray Rayner Show. His 5-minute adventures where all I would need to get through the day. Then came the Justice League on Saturday mornings life was grand. I have now spent a lifetime defending my favorite superhero, everybody would have you believe he has no real superpower. So here is an overview of the Power of Orin.

Aquaman's most widely recognized power is the telepathic ability to communicate with marine life, which he can summon from great distances. Although this power is most often and most easily used on marine life, Aquaman has at times demonstrated the ability to affect any being that lives upon the sea (e.g., sea eagles), or even any being evolved from marine life (e.g., humans).
Aquaman has a number of superhuman powers, most of which derive from the fact that he is adapted to live in the…

Zombie's + Christmas = Fun!

Image
If you know me you know I love low budget Horror movies. You also know that Christmas is my 2nd Favorite holiday with Halloween being #1. Of course, Zombies lead the way. So I always get a little giddy when somebody mixes them together. This looks pretty good and hits the store dump bins on October 4th. This little gem was made back in 2009 and is finally seeing the light of day.

A week before Christmas a viral outbreak turns the citizens of Los Angeles into the walking dead. On the brink of severing ties with both his wife and longtime partner, L.A.P.D. officer Frank Talbot finds himself trapped with them. As death closes in their survival is further threatened by the fact that both men love the same woman. Director Sean Cain Having studied and worked under writer-director, Victor Salva (“Jeepers Creepers”), Sean Cain released his first film, “Naked Beneath the Water” in 2008. Since then he’s directed two more films, “Silent Night, Zombie Night” & “Breath of Hate” in the span of…
