For our 5th stop on the trail we are stopping at The Lucky Pig Pub & Grill in Ogden Iowa. It's a big place in a small town with very good food. The tenderloin was excellent and so were the breaded mushrooms.

For the fourth stop i went to Nick's. They have a great friendly atmosphere and a hefty King tenderloin sandwich along with some large jalapeno poppers. This was voted best tenderloin in 2016.

For our third stop i went to Goldie's Ice Cream Shoppe. It is a small place with some good food. Huge tenderloin sandwich.

Our first stop on the Iowa Tenderloin Trail. The Brick Street Market & Cafe in Bondurant Iowa. A perfectly cooked thick and juicy tenderloin sandwich with sidewinder fries.

On my second stop of the Iowa Tenderloin Trail I stopped at 'The Other Place' in Clive Iowa. I got another thick and juicy sandwich along with some nice thick cut onion rings. The Other Place is a Nice sports bar with good food and plenty of TVs.

Bill Maher and others feel it is OK to shame fat people. In his show, Maher said, "Fat shaming doesn't need to end it needs to make a comeback." What he wants is the right to be a jerk and insult people.

Shaming is not something that someone can do to you. What they are doing is insulting you. You have control over whether you feel shame or not. You determine your own happiness. And you have the power to make changes so you don't feel ashamed.

This channel is for free thinkers, critical thinkers, generally anyone that is thinking for themselves. All open minds are welcome. I believe we need to think for ourselves and not accept the spoon feeding the main stream media (right or left) tries to give us. We will examine how their words and messages are crafted to make the public accept their reality.

This is a channel to share, learn, grow and to have a little fun along the way. I've been around for over half a century so I think I know a thing or two about a thing or two. My videos/comments will just be me sharing my opinions on life, the universe, and everything.

I don’t want to see name calling or insults in this channel. Insulting someone only serves to make them put up their defenses and you will never win the discussion or learn anything
I don’t have all the answers but together we can find them and have some fun as we walk this path.
