Neighbors are always an interesting challenge as far as keeping the peace. In this complex all of mine have been terrific. Most have dogs which I always endeavor to make friends with too especially the couple right below me who are great people with two dogs. A boxer named Roxy and a huge Rhodesian Ridgeback named Loki. He's big as a house and very mellow but his size alone and expressionless face will cause anyone to see him as one to use extreme caution when approaching.

There are a few others as well including a German Shepard or two, a couple of Huskies, and my little buddy the Border Collie who lived across the hall before I moved upstairs to this place. When her owner walks her she always stops to see if I'm out on my balcony and then I have to come down and bring her a treat. What surprises me is how many bigger dogs we have around here. Most don't have little lap dogs they have medium to large size breeds which seems rare for an apartment complex.

The only truly bad neighbor was a trans guy (????) who lived next door when I lived in Englewood. After he'd psychically threatened nearly everyone on the floor at least once (was he gonna scratch my eyes out) and several visits from the local LEO's he finally became a COVID era recluse, stopped paying his rent, and defied the management to evict him which of course they couldn't. He hated noise but he took to pounding on walls and slamming doors just to piss everyone else off.

My roomie soul brother Steve met him in the hall one day and blocked him from taking the elevator which was right across from our door. The guy actually hissed at him when Steve told him to take the stairs because he wasn't gonna ride down with him and we both told him that if he ever pounded on our wall again they'd never find his body. One neighbor actually did threaten to shoot his ass so under enough duress we finally got him outta there but IMHO he was pure evil and a psychopath.
well i guess i got lucky then.

Best part of where I live now is the distance between houses. One of my neighbors house is close to 200 feet from mine through a heavy belt of trees and the other is closer to 500 feet with a hay field in between. I’ve talked with the closer neighbor a few times in the 7 years we’ve lived here. Only met the other one once and that was when one of her trees fell in my back yard. She came over and asked if I needed help when she saw me cutting it up. This distance came in handy when I broke in the engine in the Pontiac. That activity would have been a huge issue in my old neighborhood where the houses were right on top of each other.

All I could think of when I saw this was creating a Stoner Dude meme; Lets call GrubHub and order a large pizza and bucket of KFC and we'll have a Chizza Party. Man the folks in that KFC marketing dept must have access to some really good shit.

Yeah, yesterday like when we ate that Chizza. Is there any left? I got the munchies again.

Chizza sounds like a skin disease.
Yeah because it sure doesn't sound like anything I'd want to eat. Here's my crabby old man comment.

Instead of coming up with more insane ways to market their products have they ever even once considered just making them better tasting and healthier to eat instead of trying to develop even more ways to manufacture ingredients to cheapen it? Big business rails against government oversight via agencies like the FDA because they interfere with the systematic plan to slowly poison us all or clog our arteries so completely we'll die much sooner because old people won't eat shit like that period. :sick:

The ultimate in a sharp, sharp cheddar that's blonde rather than yellow. An icon in the Pacific NW since 1937. People save the one-pound cans for years before opening, and it's one of the most popular Christmas gifts. Runs $33 per one-pound can. People who are in the know buy multiple cans at once.

Their website states a 20 can limit. Holy cow, that’s a lot of cheese.

One of the youngster assistants keeps telling me about cougar gold. He's also a Coug.
Before Christmas, he was hoping for a tin of it.

Tillamook Creamery in Oregon has an outstanding white cheddar as well. Love white cheddar too.

Only difference between yellow and white cheddar is annatto seen for coloring.
But there's also differences in taste based both on how it was made and it's aging process. There are what I call "boutique" grade cheddar and commercial grade cheddar. The cheese my former in laws shipped to Kraft for their Cracker Barrel was not the same as that which they wrapped and sold under their own private label. It was made in different batches with different "starters".

But you're right that all things being equal the white and yellow versions of the same batch aged the same should not taste different.

I loves me some Tillamook. We always have their sharp cheddar here. I've had good ice cream from them, too. Every bit as delicious as the premium brands but without the hefty price tag.
Had some of each tonight. Some Tillamook white cheddar along with my dinner and a bowl of Tillamook Caramel Swirl for dessert. Given it's quality it is fairly priced.

Yes and yes, to both points, uh, pointed out here.😁

Tilamook makes good cheese, but it takes a back seat to Cougar Gold. Really. No brag, just fact.

Pro tip: order direct from the WSU Creamery. They're online and they sell at the lowest price you can buy their chesses. Other places mark it up another $10 a can and sell out despite that. The creamery charges $12 per BOX for shipping, and I think four or five cans is the most that fit in one box. Doesn't matter, still $12 per box.

To do it right, get a can of Cougar Gold for the assistant, another for you, and get another flavor you select from the list on the website. We're really fond of the Viking and the Smoked Cheddar, but my younger daughter loves the Crimson Fire and the Sweet Basil. Spending only $12 for shipping 3+ cans is a good deal.


Spend the money for a can of Cougar Gold and I GUARANTEE you will not be disappointed. After opening, take the cheese out of the can and put it in a large ziplock bag. It keeps better that way, because it does take more than a week to eat the whole pound...unless you have friends over. (In which case you and they may both become addicted. It's part of our plan for world cheese domination.)

$33 per pound is outta my tax bracket unless it's delivered by a blonde haired/blue eyed WSU cheerleader with bad intentions. :devilish:
