December & January Catch up- Gluten Free Fish & Chips!

So we had a great Christmas, many presents were opened and many travel plans were accomplished. After Canada it was time to get back to the real life and start enjoying some home time and getting things done. One of those things was making home made gluten free fish and chips. I will link the recipe at the end. I also haven’t had any fish and chips since Disney World at Raglan Road where they’re gluten free so I was pumped. It ended up being excellent! The one thing I will do different next time is make my own tartar sauce, the store bought kind sucks.

Voyager Au Canada for a week! a stay at the Chateau, Yes.

Canada eh? I’ve always wanted to go back since going as a youngin’ to Montreal and this time I wanted to hit up Quebec City. When you google “most Christmas magical places to visit” Quebec City during December is one of the top choices, just google it. It’s such an amazing place with awesome people and beautiful sights. A must visit for anyone who love’s new adventures, architecture and a different culture with a language barrier.

Alors venez pour cette aventure à Québec!

Instead of posting a daily blog series of the entire trip I’ll just make an entire post of my journey with some of the pics I took throughout the journey. Also Gluten Free in Quebec? Yes! It’s very gluten free friendly and some of the best gluten free food around.

air canada

Flew Air Canada the entire route. For me being 6″1 the only thing I was worried about was the size of these jets. However they were comfortable enough and pleasant for a 2-3 hour plane ride no problem. Also saw my first Tim Hortons!

At the Toronto airport I found a gluten free cranberry maple sandwich! WHAT? So good. Also Quebec airport and our luxury 4×4 chariot. Hit Read More!

Finland Food Haul, Gluten Free Online Shopping

Enjoy some super sweet items from from Finland I ordered online. This Finland stuff is the coolest, I found this site: www.suomikauppa.fi, and they deliver to the USA. It was a totally cool experience and they have different language translators on their website.

Finland

Check this stuff out! It was all under $100 and shipped from Finland.

I got some blueberry Shampoo, Finland’s version of redbull, bramble-berry chocolate, and the spaghetti and chocolate sticks are all gluten free! Also some cool gum, and a mountain dew flavored drink only found in the region. I’d totally recommend going and buying some stuff from Finland, it’s pretty cool and fun. I think out of all the products I recieved the mustikka shampoo (blueberry) was the best. Smelt so good.

October Food Update 2017

So been catching up with work and what not so will be making a post that entails my October. Didn’t go on any trips but I did try some sushi, make tacos for Taco Tuesday and got a cool lego set.

october

Who doesn’t love to start October off with some Sushi? Haha, however this place right by our house is excellent and always fresh. Tried this new Egg Roll Ameebi or something and was pretty tasty.

taco

Also started Taco Tuesday, who doesn’t love a Taco on a Tuesday? Also below is a place called Gandolphos deli, a NYC style deli. Had good pastrami, no gluten free bread however.

lego

Got this sweet limited edition Batman movie lego set with different figurines. It’s themed with the lego figures dressed up as batman but like a easter batman! to cool.

Day 3 of this EPIC California adventure begins with breakfast at our hotel and then a twenty minute drive through Los Angeles. Then we end up at Universal Studios Hollywood. I remember the Apollo 13 Space Shuttle from when I was 12 and visited. First let’s check out some photos of the cruise through the iconic city, which is trashy as fuck. Just like the breakfast.

Hurricane Harvey

Driving back to Arkansas after a trip down South to help the family out after Hurricane Harvey hit was an eye opener! Corpus Christi was suppose to be a direct hit but it turned at the last minute and whacked Rockport/Refurio and went up to Houston. I captured some photos on my phone on the way through Refurio, looked like an apocalyptic event.

This was a famous Sandwich shop, now completely torn down.

This casino type place got some damage.

Last standing filming location of Gone with the Wind, the Old Mill

Since moving to Little Rock, the Old Mill has always been a place I wanted to check out since it was in the opening credits of the movie “Gone with the Wind”, I’ve never seen the movie nor want to but I think movie props are still cool relics. Also knowing this is the last known prop of the movie to still stand I had to check it out. I made a video of my encounter with this old mill, view it below.

Was a rainy gone with the wind kind of day and could hear the sounds of music playing in the background, the atmosphere was dank, the mill was lustrous, the Pandora avatar looking bridge was also epic. This place is COOL, also very serene and peaceful, yet inspiring to want to post up and write a novel. If your around, check out the old mill, very chill place.

Last day in Branson, we got out of there quick.

Branson was an alright town, it wasn’t bad, but wasn’t a place I’d want to come back to unless I’m 90 or I’m coming to Silver Dollar City. The gluten free scene is non-existent and the overall quality of things is eh C-, I’d rather splurge on Vegas and get the same thing. But driving back we found an awesome little Lake Shop called Fergusons that had some awesome food.

fergusons

Fergusons was an excellent little stop, who would have thought. (no cell phone service here).

+no gluten free bread or menu

Headed back to Little Rock from Branson we got quite hungry and wanted to find somewhere to stop and eat, sure enough we passed this place and said hmm let’s turn around and check it out. It reminds me of a place back in Texas you hit up before you float the river with a very homey vibe and gives you a sense of adventure.

The service was not bad, the restaurant is real small and has a bunch of flea market same stuff you find at any gift shop kind of stuff to buy. The food however was excellent, I’m not sure if everything is homemade but it sure seemed like it. I got a burger with no bun/fries, the meat was seasoned perfectly (small burger) however extremely tasty with cheese + bacon, nom. The fries seemed to be also fresh cut and excellent flavoring especially with ketchup.

Only reason I knocked off a star was the lady at the front who proclaimed to be from Ireland was eating the entire time we were trying to check out. We let these older people go ahead of us and then she started chatting up a storm to them while we waited and then soon as they were done she sat back down and started eating while we were literally staring at her to check out like “hello”, finally we made it out. Other that that Ferguson’s is a gem.

Thanks for checking out Branson Week, Chillin out until next week.

Fake Mickey 1933 World Fair Knifes

Quick Update Note: I’ve been working alot so haven’t had time to update, but still very active! I will update soon as time permits, here is a dope article I found when doing some research on some knifes I wanted to purchase. I’ve been collecting 1930’s Disney Merch and almost lost $50 to a fake, good thing I found this article, will post here.

So Walt didn’t feature any rides at the Worlds Fair in Chicago however he did have a few merchandise items there unlike the 1964 World’s Fair. So check this read out.

There’s an old saying that if you repeat a lie often enough, people will eventually believe it. That applies not only to words but also to reproductions of antiques and collectibles.

Take the case of the Mickey Mouse 1933 Worlds Fair pocket knife.

A collector once wrote to ACRN to report this knife was being reproduced. He owned an original for which he paid $115. He wanted to let us know he found a reproduction in a nearby antique mall for only $8
