As I think Ray Croc once said(the guy who bought McDondals and made it the chain we now know), it's not a hambguer chain it's a real estate investment company, we own the most expensive corner in every city in the US.

    Walmart has done something similiar. Targeting where to build its store, usually on the edge of a town where land is cheap but traffic is high. Then stores build around the Walmart. Walmart buys big lots, like a former farm, and then sell/rents the lots around it to these other stores. It makes a lot of money doing this, because it buys cheap, land that has little commercial value, let's say for $100,000 and acre. Then it build a Walmart on part of it, and the traffic to the location is now huge. It then sells the lots around the Walmart for 1,000,000 an acre. It's a big sidebusiness for Walmart. In every small town you will find this to be true. In sprawling urban centers, Walmart has to buy in the middle of developed area and couldn't always use the same tactic, but had to get stores closer to consumers.

    Plus now you have the smaller neighborhood Walmart grocery stores popping up all around. And WinCo is opening up a store on the old Mervyns site in Ventura.

    Great collage, Barbara! Glad it was a good day.

    I prefer In 'N Out just slightly, the fries at Five Guys too greasy for me overall. Burgers, about even, toppings seem better at In 'N Out. Peanuts at Five Guys, though!

    On the topic of 90's films, here's a small bit of rather ridiculous fun from a classic. Looking forward actually to the 3D release in a few weeks for this title -

    Have you ever been to a WinCo? They are kind of wierd, a lot like a Food 4 Less, but to a bigger extreme away from regular grocery stores.

    The audio component is terrible.

    I think the movie would be good, but having seen it a bazillion times I don't plan to waste the money to see the dinosaurs jump out at me. I think it's just another lets make a buck by rereleasing it in 3D film.

    This will be the first WinCo in our area. So in our area, covering Ventura/Oxnard we have nine VONS (Safeway), three Ralphs, four Albertsons, two Wallys and soon three Walmart Neighborhood groceries, Food 4 Less, Trader Joes and six Fresh and Easys. Not to mention a CostCo. Crazy.

    Ahhh WinCo. That's where we do all of our shopping. Their pizza is fantastic too. Hawaiian on garlic sauce... mmmm!! Too bad the pizza place isn't open 24 hours like the rest of the store.

    I really want to go see that! I need to talk my aunt into letting me take my cousin to see it. She's 11. I'm sure she can handle it, but her mom is a tough cookie to convince.

    I think it would be ok. When it came out there were plenty of preteens seeing it.
