No, not at all.  They play the "easy listening" variety; the kind of music
that makes me want to eat real fast and get out of there.  I wouldn't want
some Peter, Paul, and Mary song in my head all day!

From the tone of their TV commercials and the demographic they appear to be
appealing to, "easy listening" would be the last type of music I'd expect to
ever hear in there.

Yes I have noticed over the last couple of years, maybe more, McDonald's has
been reaching out to the black consumer.  Burger King used to destory
McDonald's in that demographic but now it appears the tide has turned.

I prefer Wendy's overall to McDonald's, Burger King, Carl's Junior, Sonic,
Whattaburger, Hardee's, Rax, etc.

Lots of old folks most of the time when I go to Wendy's.

YMMV ;-)

Is that the one that claims you can "do it your way", or something like that?  I
don't patronize fast food places for the quality or type of music they play, but
I do like things "my way".  At this stage of my life, I only use those that have
a drive-thru window so I don't have to go inside and see what's going on.

nothing to do with coins but:
used to be the African Americans complaining about being the minority, now
days it seems whites are the minority, seems every commercial for a froduct
these days has rap or is someway more appealing to "blacks", hell i remember
when MTV actually played music, now its nearly all rap or some other non
appealing music

And I thought I was just being overly sensitive.

I heard recently that advertising will soon be playing to Hispanic customers
more than anyone else.  The radio show said to invest in Hispanic
advertising now and watch for huge gains.  If I only knew how to invest in
Hispanic advertising, I would do so.  Probably a better bet than my SAE's
ever being a wise investment. (I buy them because I like them and keep them
in a Dansco.  Just kidding bout thinking they are in investment! Hahaha!)

Damn now I got that stupid Puff the Magic Dragon song bouncing between my
ears.
Thanks a lot pal!
Good thing you didn't mention Debbie Boone.
;-)

AFA finding '05's I have found only 1 so far that didn't have spots. Just
all yucky-looking low graders.

And I got a WW2 commemorative two pound coin - the first dated 2005
that I have seen circulating here in the UK.

Now if you just eat there three times a day for the next four days and
you might just have a full roll of 2005-D BU Lincoln cents ...... with
an increase in your cholesterol level attendant with collection pennies.

Well, Hispanics are one of the fastest growing "groups".  (I am
Hispanic)  But, only if you lump us all in to one category.

Mexican's are probably the fastest growing ethic group within the
Hispanic Community.  Almost half of this country once belonged to
Mexico, only right that they get to "get some of it back." ;-)

Changing the subject back to numismatics- I would love to see some
commemoratives depicting Hispanic men and woman of distinction.

Regards,

-Alfredo

Alfredo,

Oh, I agree.  We've only just begun to honor some people other than fat,
white MEN on coins.  I would buy any and all commems depicting Hispanic men
and WOMEN of distiction.
