Detroit Lions will be in the Playoffs

The Detroit Lions will be in the playoffs after getting in as a wild-card team.  I've been a fan of the Lions for a long time, so this feels great and I'm very happy for them!  My congratulations to the Lions and I wish them the best in the playoffs.

Friday night Iced Coffee winner: Burger King gets a win over McDonald's on Fri. Dec. 23

Tonight the iced coffee at Burger King was better than at McDonald's.
I will write more later about why I thought Burger King had the better iced coffee drink

Note: I do not work for either fast food company or restaurant, and I do not make money for this opinion.

Note:  Sorry. I'm having problems with alignment of paragraphs and also with spaces showing up unexpectedly when I publish posts and have to deal with those problems from time to time. I don't like having to know a lot about blogging, and don't want to keep worrying about why the blog doesn't function sometimes. I like writing and blogs are just the way for me to do my writing and make it available for reading.

Burger King wants us to try their New Fries

The sign lets people know there will be "FREE FRIES FRIDAY" at Burger King and that's tomorrow, Friday, December 16.  The world famous fast-food chain describes its "NEW FRIES" as having "Thicker cut, more flavor".

These fries are a big improvement for Burger King.  That's my opinion anyway. I've ordered (and eaten) the new fries on at least three different days.  The new fries are best when fresh, hot to very warm, tender and easy to chew.  I don't know if I'll be there on Friesday -- I mean Friday -- but if I am, I will probably buy the large fries.  Then I can share with someone, or not.

My meal at Dairy Queen...sort of a part 2, after the peanut butter shake

Last time, I wrote about the peanut butter shake at Dairy Queen. It was a large shake, I was just getting started drinking it but wanted more, so I asked if they had a cheese sandwich meal.  She said they could make it a meal. Here are some my pictures.  I liked this meal very much and will probably order it again.

DQ Peanut Butter Shake among my longtime favorites

I wanted to go to Dairy Queen today (Saturday) and invited my mother to go with me. We each bought our own treats, and I ordered a meal there after starting to drink this yummy peanut butter shake.  I liked peanut butter on just about everything in times many years before Fast Food Yummy. (B.F.F.Y.) LOL And I recall ordering peanut butter shakes at Dairy Queen in those days of much time ago.  I hope no future civilizations -- due to boredom or because they lost all historical records except my fast food blog -- base their calendar on when this blog started.  However, if I ever write an autobiography, which would mean I'd be famous, I will try to figure out when I drank my first peanut butter shake at Dairy Queen, and to the best of my ability be honest about when that was. (Before peanut butter shakes, I liked strawberry shakes and still do, but that really is ancient history.) It means you'd know my age, but it would be okay if you bought my autobiography, which would make me rich, to go along with famous.  I'm kidding.  I won't ever tell you my age and in exchange you can keep the fame and fortune.  But you can't have my peanut butter shake.

Smiled to remember a great shake

I miss Iceberg Drive Inn and the great shake I had there about a month ago. 
Thank you, Iceberg Drive Inn workers.

Iceberg Drive Inn to get great review

Monday was an interesting day.  I went, I ate, I drank, but first I felt some sadness because a fast food restaurant that I enjoyed about a month ago was closed.  I'm not sure what the word 'closed' means as it's used in the sentence "Iceberg Drive Inn Is Now Closed", which is what the note on their drive-thru menu said.

I'm talking about the Iceberg Drive Inn on North Milwaukee Street, Boise, Idaho.  I don't read the Idaho newspapers much or watch the local (Idaho) news, so I don't usually follow what Idaho businesses are doing.

Not wanting to give up, I went to another Iceberg restaurant location and found that it was gone and a new restaurant was there instead. I was disappointed and also getting hungry.

Iceberg Drive Inn will still get a great review, which was basically written in November.  I hadn't posted it yet because I was hoping to get a photo of the shake, like the one I ate about a month ago.  It was a delicious Ice Cream Shake and their fries were very tasty.  The radio program that I was listening to at the same time was about one of my favorite bands from the '70s, and it was a very pleasant surprise.  Everything seemed too good to be true, so I had to ask myself whether this had just been a dream.  I'm sure it was real.  We just need more of reality to be like those rare dreamlike occasions.
