I buy Bandon Cheddar. It looks and tastes like the Tillamook stuff, but is named for a scenic village hundred or so miles further down the Oregon Coast. The big secret is that the Tillamook guys (big bullies) bought out the Bandon Creamery some years ago and the cheeses are essentially the same product, only at different price points.


Steve
Didn't know that. I will certainly check it out.

But.

Like hociR, I'm not so sure if I want my Tillamook with another name on it.

Even if it does cost less.

No posts for over eight hours. Hmmm. Too much bacon, cheese, beer and pets while visions of HociR's swirl. Watched "The Gathering Storm" the other night, Sir Winston and the lesser guys. Always loved his line, in a fit of depression, while watching his pigs munch on apples.

I am in the middle of reading "The Fat Surprise" which just came available on Amazon. So far it is quite an eye opening read. Turns out that bacon is really healthy for you. The Massai men believe that vegetables and fruits are good only for animal feed.

And it would appear that this thread may finally have run its course. It has been over 24 hours since the last post. It was a great one while it lasted but it appears that the Hocir has finally corrupted everyone.

Its either that or you can only say so many things about cheese and bacon.

We are good honest people. You suggest we are corrupt?

It's spring. When a young man's fancy turns to thoughts of how to sneak new gear past the watchful eye of the ever vigilant distaff side. This takes full concentration with no distractions. Well, maybe shrimp on the barbie but ...

Never say "jamais" ... eh, "never" (hociR). No wait, I'm confused ... Whatever and besides, FRENCH CHEESE IS THE BEST IN THE WORLD ... and so is our "Poitrine de porc demi-sel" !!!

I'm still reading but posting little as I am drowning in rental clean up and repair project. The only photography is documenting the damages in case I am lucky enough to locate the former tenants.

So far this thread has followed the standard for threads. They go along, charging like a freight train bound for some undisclosed destination, then, when they encounter a grade, slow, sometimes almost to a crawl, only to reach the summit, then gather speed until the next grade, and the process repeats.

Don't give up, we are almost there.

Blasphemy!

Never can there be too much bacon, cheese, beer and pets. Especially beer. Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.

And only some have that "visions of hociR's swirling" thing going on in their heads. The rest have either given in, of resigned themselves to the fact that the livE hociR shall never grace their doorstep after the Brown Truck visits their humble abode.

Nice. I like that.

And when you think about it, many of us have much in common with pigs.

"Nuff said there.

I'm envious. BBQ ribs are among my most favorite of foods.

Next to bacon, beer and cheese of course!

Like beer, bacon is one of those foods that has a certain, "je ne sais quoi" about it.

That's right. Nothing but Rabbit Food.

Au contraire, mon frere.

I can honestly say that the livE hociR shall never grace my camera kit.

And this thread shall live on in infamy, and even wind up in the Guinness Book.

Mark my words!

One can never say too many things about Nature's perfect foods.

Yes, Jac, it is an art that men have developed over centuries. It began, I think, back when Og tried to sneak stuff into the cave without raising suspicion from his lovely mate, who was there in the dampness by the fire, searing the hair off of the latest kill that Og had brought in form the hunt.

He was likely caught a few times, until he learned the fine art of subterfuge and deception. The technique was honed and perfected over the years, but even today some men still cannot grasp the finer details of the art of sneaking the latest stuff into the cave, er, I mean home.

Oh Jean!

I am so envious! The French have so many great things, and now you have shown us another. I simply must get on a plane and come to France so I may enjoy the finest of the French culinary delights.

The Masai men prefer a blood/milk mixture. To each his own!

The livE hociR has corrupted many of us. With me it started at the tender age of 15 when a Singlex TLS was delivered to my doorstep. How was I to know? Later the error was compounded with the addition of an XR7. More recently a second XR7 and XR-2s were added to the shelf. Purchase of the K-3 was just one more step down the slippery slope. Mon Dieu! What have I done!

Dire things are promised if we disparage the intent of the OP. The hociR will be angry.
