Weidmann's Since 1870 Review | Meridian, Mississippi

Not Sponsored: I evacuated to Meridian, Mississippi for Hurricane Ida. While there, I visited several restaurants in the area. Weidmann's was on my list, because it had so many wonderful reviews. Plus, their food looked absolutely delicious. Weidmann's Since 1870 is historical. It's Mississippi's Oldest Restaurant. It was established in 1870 by Felix Weidmann (Swiss immigrant), who was a chef on a transatlantic steamship. In 1923, his grandson Henry Weidmann moved the restaurant to its present location. Decades past, and in the 60's ownership passed to Shorty McWilliams and Gloria (Weidmann). In the 80's, it was passed to Poo Chancellor and his wife Gloria (McWilliams). A group of 54 investors purchased and remodeled the building in 1999. In 2010, Charles Frazier took over the reigns. Whew! It's a charming restaurant. It's nestled in downtown Meridian, MS. You'll find beautiful antiques, pretty paintings, vintage pictures and glorious mirrors inside. Just looking around is a joy. The food is absolutely amazing. They start you off with their traditional peanut butter crock and crackers. This tradition started back in the 1940's (you can read about it in the story below). The peanut butter is handmade and oh so creamy! Nothing like you would find in a store. Next? Appetizers!!! It's the first time I've ever ordered THREE (3) appetizers!!! I ordered the Fried Green Tomatoes With 1870 sauce. This was glorious you guys! It's fried green tomatoes topped with shrimp, mushrooms and a tomato cream sauce. I would also highly recommend Weidmann's Seafood, Chicken and Sausage Gumbo. It has a really good base and they don't skimp on the ingredients. It's rich & flavorful. The Loaded Crab Cake was also delicious (Crabmeat Belvedere and Melted Fontina Cheese). So as you can imagine, this left very little room for an entree. HaHaHa But I ordered and took it back to the hotel. We had their daily Fried Catfish special with the most delicious tasting sliced tomatoes. I had the Catfish Belvedere. The catfish is grilled and smothered with Crabmeat Belvedere topped with a light cream sauce. You MUST get their potato salad. So creamy. So good. Their macaroni and cheese is also delicious. Dessert!!! I had to try Weidmann's White Chocolate and Praline Liquor Coffee. It's so smooth and delightful to drink. It's a hot drink. I also enjoyed their World Famous Black Bottom Pie. Overall, the food is just absolutely delicious. We got there by noon and we didn't leave until may two hours later. HaHaHa It was packed when we got there and by the time we left, there was only a sprinkle of people. They stop at a certain time and then prepare the restaurant for the dinner crowd. I even took pictures of the bathroom area. It's so beautiful and I love the white mirror in bathroom. Its so pretty. I love details. Charming restaurant. Delicious food. Add it to your list, if you visit. Highly recommended. When you leave the restaurant, make a right, go to the corner, make a left (cross the street) and see the David Ruffin Mural (The Temptations)(here and here). David Ruffin was a lead singer for The Temptations. He was from Meridian.

Zac's Catfish And Chicken Review | Meridian, Mississippi

Not Sponsored: Hey Guys! I evacuated for Hurricane Ida and stayed in Meridian, Mississippi. I ate at some wonderful restaurants while staying there. The food in Meridian is so good. They have some wonderful cooks. One place that I looked up, that had great reviews was Zac's Catfish and Chicken. They are locally owned and operated. They serve fried catfish, bone-in catfish, shrimp, seafood platters, salads, poboys, burgers, sandwiches and I could go on. HaHaHa Well, I ordered their catfish platter, shrimp poboy and onion rings. So good you guys! So tasty! We went back another day and ordered their chicken tender platter. Its awesome as well. You can walk in, go through their drive thru, order online and even call them to place an order. They'll have it ready! I was really impressed with them.

Cracker Barrel | Christmas Decorations 2021

Not Sponsored: Hey Everybody! I evacuated from Hurricane Ida several weeks ago. It started off as a tropical depression and when I looked up it was forecast to be a Category 4, possible 5 hurricane. So having been through Hurricane Katrina (and many other hurricanes), I evacuated to Meridian, Mississippi. I've passed through Meridian driving to Cincinnati, Ohio but I've never stayed there. Very nice city and the people are really friendly. Well, there was a Cracker Barrel Restaurant nearby. I wanted a good breakfast so I decided to drop in. When I opened the door, I thought I had won a Willy Wonka Golden Ticket ... OH THE MARVELOUS SURPRISES that greeted my eyes. If you're a foodie lover like me, hold on! You will love their ornaments!!! There were chocolate chip cookies, Twinkies, Hostess cupcakes, Charms Blow Pops, ICEE's, SLUSHIES, Tootsie Rolls and Tootsie Roll Pops. I really thought I was going to lose it. Everything was so tempting. Scattered throughout the store were theme decorated trees. I wanted all the nutcrackers and gingerbread men on display. There were cute frosted Christmas themed houses. If you decorate using a blue & pink theme, there are cute gumdrop trees, snowmen, mugs and even a cute pink jukebox you can add to your collection. Its happiness for the eyes. It offered a pleasure relief from the worries of the hurricane. I picked up a couple of ornaments to add to my trees at home. As always, I had a wonderful breakfast at Cracker Barrel. A lot of what you see below can be found on their website, if you can't make it to a store. Some are only offered in store. It's September, and these decorations are already out. So don't let grass grow under your feet if you want them. Their Halloween stuff is almost gone. Just thought I would share. Below are some more places I visited in Meridian, Mississippi.

Reasons Why CBD Creams Are Popular Among Canadians

For Canadians who are trying to get into CBD, there is one product that they need to know: CBD creams. Recently, CBD creams' popularity has risen with more and more people started using them. Much like other CBD products, these creams offer many health benefits and can be used regularly or even incorporated into your skincare routines.

Nowadays, more and more companies are looking to expand their product lines by selling CBD creams. So if you’re planning to use creams from now on, you’ll have a lot more options than a few years ago.

What are CBD creams?

CBD creams are cream products that contain CBD in them. Cannabidiol or CBD is a natural substance that is found in a hemp plant. CBD shouldn't be confused with THC, as it doesn't make you high at all. That's why a lot of Canadians are looking for CBD products without THC content. Not everyone wants to get high from THC, but everyone wants to get the health benefits of CBD.

So CBD creams are simply a cream or lotion that is infused with CBD. Typically, the CBD compound is added to the cream by using a CO2 extraction. This method of extraction is one of the purest and cleanest forms of extraction for CBD. The resulting extract is usually devoid of any trace of solvent. And this method also makes sure that there are no solvents left behind in the extracted concentrate of CBD.

Furthermore, to give the end product a form of cream or lotion, various different essential oils such as coconut oil or olive oil, and as well as sheer butter or cocoa butter are added. To find the best deals across Canada on CBD cream, visit CBD oil guides that compare the top CBD brands and offer current coupon codes as well as specials.

How to use CBD creams

Just like with other cream products, simply apply CBD cream directly to your skin. And as the creams are applied to the top layers of your skin, the CBD doesn't enter the bloodstream. Hence, this kind of product is called topical. You can also apply the creams directly to affected areas to ease symptoms of pain and help you relax and sleep.

Reasons why CBD creams are popular in Canada

CBD has been known to have many health benefits since man years ago. So it’s not surprising that CBD creams are also popular for the same reason. But there are also some differences that make creams stand out from other products.

Effective to provide relief in certain areas

Some people are feeling pain or discomfort in certain areas of their bodies. Creams provide precise relief to these areas without any hassle. The creams are able to penetrate the skin and provide targeted relief without entering the bloodstream at all. This makes them very effective for people who have problems in specific areas only.

A small dose is often enough

Some people need a high dose of CBD to relieve their symptoms. But with CBD creams and considering that you want to use them on certain areas only, a small dose is often sufficient enough. Simply put a little cream on the problem area and wait an hour or so. You can reapply the ream if you think you need more.

Effective for back and neck pain

A lot of Canadians are suffering from back and neck pain. It can be from sitting for too long or because of heavily physical activities. CBD creams are effective for this kind of pain. Apply them on the back and neck and wait until you feel better.

A great alternative to inhaling vapor

CBD vapes are very popular in Canada. They are effective, versatile, and efficient as well. But the thing is not everyone is willing to inhale vapor and expose their lungs to risks. That’s why products like CBD creams are popular alongside CBD vapes. They provide a great alternative to CBD vapes for people who want to play it safe.

Reduce signs of aging

Many beauty products promise the effect of reducing signs of aging. And guess what? CBD has it too. CBD contains antioxidants and anti-inflammation properties that can remove signs of aging such as dark spots, wrinkles, and fine lines. Furthermore, it can also provide you with soothing effects that can provide relief for itchy, dry, and red skin.


CBD creams are popular among Canadians for a number of reasons mentioned above. And all of the reasons have something to do with how good CBD is and how turning it into cream can provide many advantages.

Facing Hair Fall? Effective Tips To Treat Hair Fall

Super glossy and voluminous hair adds beauty to your overall personality. These days hair fall has become a common issue among women especially. Losing hair at an early stage can have a negative impact on your personality as nowadays the beauty standards have been redefined.

There can be multiple factors that contribute to hair loss. They include:

  • Surgery
  • Improper diet
  • Injury
  • Underlying diseases
  • Genetic disorders
  • Post pregnancy
  • High temperature
  • Infections on scalp

You can simply follow some tips to increase your hair growth and prevent hair fall.

1. Hair oil massage

There are so many oils available in the market which can prove beneficial to improve hair growth. Mixing onion and garlic oil and applying that on your scalp overnight can improve your hair follicles. These oils are rich in sulfur which reduces breakage and thinning of hair.

2. Hair packs

Applying hair packs like egg and yogurt or gram flour and yogurt can improve the texture of your hair. The rich proteins present in egg yolks provide nutrients to your hair thus reducing hair fall. Mixing onion and ginger juice in olive oil, mustard oil, and castor oil can do wonders for your hair growth.

3. Medicated hair tonics

You can order some good hair tonics from an online pharmacy service that not only provides consultation according to your hair type but can also recommend some good hair care products for you. Essential tea tree oil and aloe vera gel found in hair tonics not only promotes hair growth but also prevents breakage.

4. Using a mild shampoo

If you are facing hair fall then you must opt for mild shampoos which contain fewer chemicals and more organic ingredients. Herbal and medicated shampoos made from natural ingredients can prove to be healthy for treating your hair loss.

5. Avoid over-washing

Over-washing your hair on a daily basis loses the necessary oils on your scalp leaving it dry and frizzy. Your scalp needs these natural oils to help maintain the texture of your hair. Natural oils in your scalp are as much necessary for the health of your hair as the food for your body. Rinsing your hair twice a week will do the job for you.

6. Deep conditioning

Use a good conditioner to smoothe your hair. A good conditioner avoids frizziness leaving your hair shiny and glossy thus resulting in less breakage. While conditioning your hair, try not to apply conditioner on the scalp as it can weaken the roots. Apply conditioner on your hair only till the end. You can easily comb your hair after rinsing with a conditioner. 

7. Use leave-in hair cream

Use a leave-in hair cream after washing your hair as hydration is not only important for your skin but also for your hair. Keeping your hair hydrated all the time especially before stepping into the sunlight can make your hair frizz-free.

8. Let your hair air dry

Women often use blow dryers to dry their hair. The heat kills the texture of your hair thus resulting in breakage. Let your hair air-dry to avoid serious damage.

Logan's Roadhouse Restaurant Review | Meridian, Mississippi

Not Sponsored: I've been to a couple of Texas Roadhouse Restaurants (also one in Cincinnati, Ohio), but I've never been to a Logan's Roadhouse. They're really similar. Logan's Roadhouse Restaurants are scattered throughout the United States, so definitely do a location search on their website. I went to one in Meridian, Mississippi. It's across the street from a Hampton Inn Meridian, Hilton Garden Inn Meridian and next door to Drury Inn & Suites Meridian, Mississippi. Logan's Roadhouse received really great reviews online and the food looked absolutely delicious. Upon being seated they serve you their delicious hot rolls. They're soooo good! I swear I could sit there all evening and eat basket after basket of these rolls. I had to stop myself. HaHaHa For an appetizer, I had their artichoke & spinach dip. Scrumptious! I then ordered a 12oz rib eye steak (well done) with a loaded baked potato and caesar side salad. I was in heaven. The ribeye had a delicious smoke taste. It was juicy and tender. I thoroughly enjoyed mine. The baked potato, loaded with sour cream and cheddar cheese was also delicious. For dessert I ordered their Mississippi Brownie. We've all had brownies with ice cream, chocolate and caramel sauce, but was yours sprinkled with marshmallows? Ah-mazing!!! So, from beginning to end the meal was FANTASTIC! If you see a Logan's Roadhouse, don't hesitate stopping. Their food is delicious and doesn't disappoint. Also, the management, waitress and staff were very nice.
