The Conners S2E11 mud turtle, a good steak and a man in tub

In this episode of the Conners Jackie and Becky meet with a supplier and Darlene learns how things really work in college admissions when her daughter Harris gets into college.

In the start of the episode Jackie meets with a friendly supplier who mentions something that always happens in the B2B industry which is the competitive market through undercutting the competition this is something that a lot of people who sell to businesses are guilty of whether it’s marketing, food, insurance, etc… this isn’t always a bad thing but it also isn’t always a good thing when shopping for supplier you must look at everything just because the prices good doesn’t mean the food itself is good it may be low-quality it is better to negotiate a price whether supplier with good quality food then it is to go with the lowest quality food for the lowest price.

Jackie then makes the decision to go with the supplier rather than discussing it with her partner Becky because she fancies her friendship, business and friendship don’t always go hand-in-hand but it’s not unusual for businesses to build a relationship with a potential buyer it’s actually a standard practice for example whenever you go to a timeshare they have this magnificent breakfast ready for you I guess ready after the presentation and this wonderful tour this is to entice the customer go with to buy from you however it is important that when you have a partner that you and your partner on the same page this is actually going to be more relevant in tonight’s episode Gordon Ramsay’s 24 hours to hell and hours.

I need to be on to the B plot Harris’s educational choice, Darlene’s daughter Harris gets into central Illinois state but before Darlene gets excited Harris reveals that she got hired at price warehouse where she can get a business degree online for $350 a semester but after a lot of convincing her to go on a tour for her mother.

After the tour, they meet with the financial aid office and it turns out that well her writing skills are pretty good Kyra still does not qualify for grants or scholarships and has to take out student loans which would accurately put her in debt for 20 years this is a major issue in the world where students are being put into deck just for a good education.

At the end of the conversation, Darlene blurts out a major talking point in a lot of people’s minds which is that college is a scam while I personally don’t agree with this notion and believe that college is not only necessary but should be affordable especially when in order to have an actual living wage you need some form of Education or skill whether it be some form a trade or certification but not all certifications are created equal I will get to that in a later blog.

At the end of the episode, Becky finally convinces to cut the order in half Jackie talks to the supplier and always perceived to be a way to Furness Jackie turned out to be a genuine friendship and an encouraging message on female empowerment.

In conclusion, whether it’s college or business you should always look at your options there’s always an alternative.

That’s all I have for you today check out my like a boss review if you haven’t seen it I have a non-spoiler review as well also set your calendars for February 11th the Conners are going live on ABC.

24 hours to hell and back Caneda’s White Rooster

Still in the Jersey Shore Gordon Ramsay visits Patricia Caneda the co-owner and operator of Cuban restaurant called Caneda’s white rooster in Toms River, New Jersey.

781 Fischer Blvd, Toms River, NJ 08753

Patricia Caneda is a daughter Cuban refugees and mom of two who previously owned a small brick-and-mortar shop called Canada’s: an empanada experience which expanded into the white rooster thanks to Jeremy Grunin of Grunin Holdings investing into her dream.

Unfortunately just like blend on Main they too are having a difficult time attracting the locals, only opened a year they saw a decline after the summer only 2 they failed to attract the locals.

Before going through the disguise he decided to talk to the Jeremy who States that he has put in over 2 million dollars into the restaurant

Gordon Ramsay brings along Sopranos actors Vincent Pastore and Joey Gannascoli who are not impressed neither food nor the decor which was blend dinner however was far from perfect it was horrendous on top of that there was a smell that kept coming into the dining area from the kitchen nobody knew where that was coming from

Gordon walks into the kitchen and now comes this big reveal he takes everyone the street to watch what exactly is going on in the restaurant the condition of the kitchen was hellish flies all over the place rotten food and inexperienced young executive chef and to make it worse Jeremy who was also Undercover had to witness for the first time what was really going on in the restaurant.

There was also staff on their phone now I personally don’t mind people being on their phone as long as they’re paying attention and at least promoting the company however I admit I am guilty of this as well when you’re in a tight space you should be looking at what’s going on around you especially when you’re around things that can break or hurt you potentially.

During the staff meeting, there are a lot of concerns with the executive chef not knowing what anything means what GP means what overhead cost food production Etc another issue that is brought up is the semi seasonal location and lack of customers and resources in addition to lack staff training

After the staff meeting we get to see the inside of the kitchen and what exactly are they serving and in the fridge there is an octopus inside a sealed bag that is extremely Rancid so much so that it actually made Gordon vomit you also see a week old salmon and rotten vegetables.

Well the crew is cleaning the kitchen and the designers are working on the interior according to science to go one-on-one with Phil executive chef as they work together on the new menu, at first he is a little rocky but ultimately gets it done with Ramsey’s crew the staff is able to learn ultimately what they needed to learn the past 9 months.

After 24 hours dinner service still was Rocky however the investor Jeremy decided to give the restaurant they fired Phil and hired Chef Lisa who previously worked at blend on Main a restaurant that Chef Gordon had rescued in the previous episode

In conclusion, there are ways to attract locals your restaurant one of the ways is to partner up with delivery services such as Uber Eats Postmates GrubHub door dash also offer up your Space to meetups and events such as corporate or church event, which Toms River has a lot of also it is great publicity to get involved in the community by giving away anything you’re about to throw away.

How Disney drop the ball on baby Yoda

On November 12, 2019, Disney launched its streaming service Disney +, one of their very first original content featured was Star Wars the Mandalorian.

In the Mandalorian, you meet the iconic character which has been dubbed baby Yoda, a frog-eating infant who is of the same species as Yoda and it said to be 50 years Young

Since then people were expecting baby Yoda merch however Disney kind of dropped the ball on these pictures of baby Yoda merch isn’t set to come out until May of 2020 weren’t you can actually pre-order on Amazon.

As a result, there are a lot of talented artists on Etsy who decided to make their own baby Yoda which I honestly don’t have a problem with but it goes against copyright so there’s that.

In recent weeks Disney has struck down Etsy account due to copyright violation which is their right to do.

While this is an entirely on Disney for not having a baby Yoda of March out by Christmas they have the opportunity to fix their mistake by negotiating with the people that they’re striking down instead of making people wait till May for a toy.

The only thing is you can get affiliated with Disneys the Mandalorian are shirts, sheets, cups, decals, and jewelry.

That’s all I have for you today check out my like a boss review if you haven’t seen it I have a non-spoiler review as well

What Fuller house and the Conners got right and what they got wrong starting a business

Both Fuller house and the Conners have very similar plots for the season I want to focus on the fact that in both shows they open a business and offer the viewers a lot of information that they could use when starting a restaurant.

Like many businesses owning a restaurant is a challenge that many faces, you have to think about a lot of things such as the cost the price the product the space and the location as a son of a restaurant owner I recognize my father’s struggle who were 20 hours a day 7 days a week and an overweight diabetic amongst other things but I digress.

In season 5 episode 3 of Fuller house DJ convinces Steve to hang out with Fernando who is struggling with retirement and Jimmy who’s struggling away balancing his time as a freelance photographer, as the episode continues the 3 meet up at Uncle Monty Sandwich Emporium for lunch, along the conversation they received their food and after countless banter the three find out that Uncle Monty’s is moving to Florida and closing the shop in 2 weeks the 3 are distraught and disappointed about the news and then it cuts the next scene.

In the next scene, you see Stephanie and Kimmy as Jimmy and Fernando walking in and offer the 2 a sandwich that is when they reveal that they just bought Uncle Monty’s business with Steve being the investor. Both Stephanie and Kimmy are disappointed that the decision that they made was done without them and are very skeptical as to how the business was going to be run fair when DJ walks in the house she learns from the girls of the situation and also informed her that Steve is the one who’s investing.

At the end of the episode, Steve explains that this was a good business decision and that he can even franchise Uncle Monty’s like subways the girls warm up to the idea and the episode ends.

In episode 5 you have the grand re-opening of Uncle Monty’s which in the beginning has a lot of issues that if you’re not on social media you may run into these problems. Episode 5 titled Ready Player Fuller we have the grand reopening of Uncle Monty’s Andy episode Jimmy is dealing with promotions and ordering products for the store preparing it for the grand re-opening, they run into a few fixable problems they find out that the date of the grand reopening was scheduled for the day after but they don’t have the products that they need for a successful Grand re-opening nor do they have a banner for the event. Later on in the episode, they use they’re getting ready for the grand re-opening it successful but successful for the wrong reasons, unfortunately, everybody received a Groupon for Uncle Monty’s promising an 82% off. As the episode continues they have officially run out of the product as they had earlier predicted so Jimmy makes the unfortunate announcement that they had officially run out product and they weren’t ready for the opening.

Finally, at the end of the episode, the customers band together and decided to share their sandwiches with other customers but before any takers come they’re saved at the last minute by the local distributor.

The Conners had a similar what for its second season so best dive into it with a short recap

In season 2 of The Conners Becky gives birth to her first child, moves into her parent’s basement and goes back to working at the bar during this time Jackie sees that the old lunch box is back on the market, so she decides to see if Becky wants to partner with her in reopening The Lunchbox.

In Discovery they find out that the grandmother still owns the property and has given Darlene power of attorney Darlene is rightfully hesitant to say give up a piece of property that can be used to provide money for the family, that is enough to bring Strife between Darlene Aunt Jackie and Becky to where Becky moves in with Aunt Jackie.

Things continue to go awry when the 2 come over for Thanksgiving dinner, Darlene says something to Jackie and Jackie decides to slap Darlene for what she said to make up there’s a family vote and they vote to reopen The Lunchbox.

Later on, Jackie realizes that she is way over her head when they discover that the maintenance and the property is not up to code and is it going to cost them a lot of money so Jackie ultimately decides to give up until the town of Landford decides to Kitchen to fix the restaurant after they hear about the struggle that they have.

In conclusion in both series, you learn about crowdsourcing or crowdfunding which is the process of receiving funding from the community rather than a bank, and private investing which is considered (OPM) which stands for other people’s money, in Fuller house Jimmy should have edited the date of opening instead of opening the day of error, in addition, Steve could have also avoided the whole issue of charging people for Less for sandwiches by simply editing the Groupon.

How to properly prepare food

When preparing any type of food it is important to note I can’t believe I’m saying this the area has to be clean and sanitized.

Which is why I find it shocking to see a popular franchise such as Popeyes preparing chicken over a trash can due to lack of equipment.

Shortly after Popeyes was provided with an extra table where they can prepare food properly https://www.tmz.com/2019/11/11/popeyes-employee-makes-chicken-sandwiches-over-trash-can/

This is not the first time Popeyes has been featured in kitchen controversy in January 2017 a video surfaced on WorldstarHipHop featuring a group of employees preparing chicken on the floor as a prank don’t know if they actually serve the chicken but they were playing with food probably because it was slow.

But since we’re at this point again let me go over some key points when it comes to preparing food

  1. Wash your hands
  2. Make sure you’re preparing on a flat clean and sanitized surface
  3. Wear gloves
  4. Wear hairnets on your head and on your beard
  5. Protect yourself from hot surfaces and popping oil
  6. Make sure to keep ingredients that like fish and nuts separate from other Foods this is to prevent cross-contamination
  7. Keep cleaning supplies above the floors
  8. If you’re bored do something productive clean the kitchen promote your job or make yourself something to eat

Update they got an extra table

Safety cleaning

A Buffalo Wild Wings chemical spill leaves one dead and 13 hospitalized after an employee was mopping up chemicals with a cleaning solution.


It’s important to note Before cleaning up any spill it’s important to know what you’re cleaning and proper labels so it doesn’t cause a chemical reaction that can lead to irritated airways, respiratory problems, or burns to skin, eyes, throat, nose, and lungs.


Some gases are created from combined cleaning products that could cause damage to the nervous system, eyes, lungs, skin, liver, kidneys, and even death, this is why every restaurant or business must have an MSDS inventory according to OSHA regulations


Dealing with chemical spills

  • Immediately alert area occupants and supervisor, and evacuate the area, if necessary.
  • If there is a fire or medical attention is needed, contact Public Safety at 609-258-3333.
  • Attend to any people who may be contaminated. Contaminated clothing must be removed immediately and the skin flushed with water for no less than fifteen minutes. Clothing must be laundered before reuse. See First Aid for Chemical Exposures for more information.
  • If a volatile, flammable material is spilled, immediately warn everyone, control sources of ignition and ventilate the area

In closing while it’s very important as a business owner to make sure that all of your employees are trained properly handling chemicals such as cleaning supplies and any other food and safety protocols.
