Today I learned that my favorite burrito place in San Jose closed down. So many changes with two years and covid.

There is still a full on old school A&W near me where they still bring you the tray and clamp it on your door. Itís my favorite spot for a burger.

Apparently he did this because he thought that after the Iguana bit him, he was injected poison, so he rushed to kill the animal to preserve its antidote.

What the security footage showed was that for 30 minutes, this guy kicked and tortured the animal until it died.

Meth is one hell of a drug.

What about the 12 year old boy and 14 year old girl that broke into someone's house and had a shootout with the cops.

OH OH OH I want to go there when I eventually get to make my trip!
My mother worked at one when I was a kid so it is very nostalgic to me.

Totally forgot about that one. That was wild. Florida never ceases to amuse me.

That was before we moved. Still hurts.

I can't ever remember having anything like that growing up in West San Jose. Our A&W growing up was a shack in Campbell. It's been gone for years. Great memories of my mom taking us. Root beer freeze was my favorite.

Heck yeah, it's not far from the freeway. Maybe 15 min. They still do regular cruise in's here. All the employees still carry those belt mounted change dispensers. It's a cool spot to go if you are looking for nostalgia. The food here is also great.
