  59. 2020 Sunday C: Anxious liberals are awaiting the VP pick of former Vice President Joe Biden, expected sometime this upcoming week.  Many believe it’s going to be California Sen. Kamala Harris, a woman who has achieved every position through the alleged trading of sexual favors to achieve it.  Others think it might be the Pelosi favorite, California Congresswoman Karen Bass, a known fan of Fidel and Raul Castro.  Others think it might be noted ‘woman of color,’ Senator Liz Warren of Massachusetts while others ponder the pick as being Susan Rice, former National Security Advisor in the Obama administration.  Still others contend Joe Biden has no clue as to who it’s going to be and awaits notice from whomever is TRULY behind his campaign.  At one time, many of us believed it could be Michelle Obama as the top of the ticket but now, who knows- it might be angry loser Stacey Abrams.
  60. 2021 Monday: We are conducting an experiment today to see if we alter one or two things if the unofficial shadow-banning of the world-famous AICPENDBLOG.COM continues.  What a world in which, we live and work.  Chef E.C. McCardle…

Wild Turkey released their next album, “Rarest Turkey,” on September 11, 2007.  This album features a rare collection of tracks that would have been on a third studio album back in the mid-1970s but which ended up on the shelf awaiting some future date.  The album would be repackaged with additional tracks following Glenn Cornick’s untimely death in 2014 so you can either search for that one or check out this earlier version.  We suspect that if you are completists as are we, you will want whatever version of this album you can find.  At $45, it’s a flipping steal so seek it out at Amazon.com and add it to your record collection ASAP.  You will be glad you did.

Author: Chef Elvin C. McCardle, ACF-CWC

I began my career working as a busboy in 1963, move to washing pots in 1965, became a chef's apprentice in 1969 and have been a career professional ever since. I am still involved in professional foodservice as a consultant for food and beverage professionals. Like everyone else who writes for the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, Bakersfield, California, street artist and graffiti guru, Simone, has done cartoon caricatures of me, which is my personal photo now. We must keep our personal identities confidential as in this world of political animosity and the fact that we own restaurants, which are dependent upon public visitation, has forced us to journey down this road. We hope you understand. Thank you. Chef Elvin C. McCardle writes from Ventura, CA. Chef Elvin C. McCardle is now a Conservative Republican!
