I have not been to a McD's since 1966 when my son, then 4 years old, got very sick and puked all over after we had lunch at one in LA, Calif. Could have been an isolated incident, but he would just about turn green whenever he saw the Golden Arches so never went again.

McD's is really good late afternoon or just after the meal rushes because the meat patties are freshly made but later on especially in the evenings...uff the burgers are like hockey pucks and not juicy at all, microwaved. So if I get hungry and want to eat at a 24 hr McD's I'll order the Chicken bundle or avoid the burgers.

It's a different crowd when you reach the main hwy... lol.

So Los Banos would be good place to live? My "Ex" father in law grad at UP then masters at Cornell and Doctorate at Michigan state. Smart smart man....Mensa member.My Ex is **** smart too but not right in head..

I had not eaten KFC for 3 years and got hungry for KFC, I kept finding KFC right next to the UP University on Google Earth but every time I drove by (hwy side) I never seen it, so I thought it had gone out of business, anyway I eventually figured it out by following the road to the "T" and sure enough KFC and across the street a mall and McDonalds, the area is nice and all sorts spots to shop. There's Robinsons mall as you make the turn of the local hwy and a Jollibee on the other side of that and another one not to far from that back gate area, looks very nice, several eat spots, coffee, local pizza, open air restaurants all up and down the road.

People don't bug you as much so not as many beggars, citizen seem to have money and you speak english they understand, it's like being in Manila, it's a small spot but packed with all sorts of things, it runs about 2 miles.

You live in a municipality similar to mine, I've been to other's in the area and it's all the same, I'd rather talk with a crazy english speaking citizen then struggle with hand language and talk with a vampire constantly tapping my leg or shoulder and when you do get the conversation going it's about who has the biggest part between the legs, or how big is your pension, how come I still have my teeth.... something like that, it's not real full filling but cool at first, year after year, man it gets old.

By the way? A while back several people were talking about swapping ideas for home cooked recipes...exchanging personal recipes for our much missed back home favorites. WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO THAT AWESOME IDEA?

Someone had mentioned starting a thread post and listing all of our personal recipe favorites from back home...
