Batman is a man dressed like a bat. He's an eccentric millionaire and he fights crime in his spare time. He isn't very batlike. Especially his eyes and ears. When he has his helmet/cape on, there are no ear holes for him to hear. His hearing probably is really bad when he's in the suit unlike real bats with their far superior hearing. Bats are also blind but Batman has holes for his eyes. He probably has really good vision because I don't see Batman wearing any glasses. What Batman really should where is a helmet/cape that has big ear holes and no eyeholes.

The best of potato salad.
I usually don't like potato salad. It's not very tasty. Especially when people start being creative and add apples, peas, and carrots. Then it's just nasty. I do have a favorite potato salad and it's the Baked Potato Salad from R~N Market. The market has closed now but I still remember it fondly. It's not a mayonnaise based salad. Instead, it's sour cream based. It has cheese and chives and bacon in it. It's like eating a baked potato with all the toppings mixed in it. No apples. Other places and delis have this potato salad now. It has become more popular but I will always remember where I had it first.

The best of fish and chips.
Fish and chips can easier be done badly. Often it is too greasy. The best fish and chips belong to Andria's Seafood Restaurant and Market in the Ventura Harbor. The prices are good considering it's at the harbor where there are a lot of tourists. They use angel shark which makes for very good fish and chips. It has the texture of crab but the taste of fish. The meat is quite firm and will not flake and break apart when you eat it. It comes with all your favorite dips including a homemade tartar sauce and a cocktail sauce that has horseradish. The fish and chips still make my mouth water.

I was in a pet store today when I noticed a book on a shelf titled Turtles for Dummies. These dummy books have really been catching on. But is this particular book a good idea? Should dummies have turtles? If you recognize yourself as a dummy, why do you want to take the responsibility of owning a turtle? Turtles are living things. I fear for the turtle whose owner is a dummy.

Happy Mother's Day everyone! That's right, today is Mother's Day. Do you know who get left out on Mother's Day? The fathers. The fathers work just as hard as the mothers. Together they are a team. You hear everyone calling their moms but I think the fathers fell really left out. So remember, don't forget to wish your father a Happy Mother's Day, too.

The Atkin's diet seems to be all the rage nowadays. Everyone has jumped onto the low-carb bandwagon. I mean everyone. Does the diet actually work? I don't think so. If low-carb really works, I'd see a lot more skinny Americans.
