Lets get something straight. Bacon is good. This thread will always eat bacon. Love bacon. Talk Bacon. Just because Gettingsmarter decided to go and put a lovable face on bacon does not decrease its tastiness. In fact that pig toll can be paid in reverse if not careful!!! *sheesh*

Not all bad though... Solarion seems to have enhanced gardening!!!

GYM!
Glad to be here but I'll be skipping the bacon love! I'm vegan :-)

That's great news! I also recommend fruit water. I like to leave raspberries in water overnight and then it tastes amazing the next day :-)

Thank God you woke up Ken and talked some sense into me. I really didn't know how I was going to give up BACON.

I administer housing subsidies. We have one girl who has a Dr excuse to have a service dog for PTSD. This means a landlord had to let her have the dog. Well she went full throttle and also got a service miniature pony and pot belly pig. Try dealing with the landlord who was livid after seeing "a horse and pig" on the brand new carpet in his living room. He saw pics on FB

Lunar I've heard that lions make really good pets but only if you scrub your human smell off with bacon soap. They say it calms the Lions down.

I have acute, chronic, long standing, sudden, debilitating, and complex man-flu. The weather outside is horrendous. So I have decided to have a lazy start to this bank holiday weekend by drinking coffee in bed and listening to podcasts. I'm currently listening to This American Life, which relates an interesting tale of 'refusniks' who don't cooperate with internal border patrols. Fascinating - I'm going to youtube them now.

A few of you mentioned David Sadaris earlier. His sardonic wit and look on life is brilliant.

funny scarlet, and frankly, I don't give a damn...

but when I quit bacon a couple weeks ago, a request from the wife I said I was going all out one last time, one giant blt.

And in case anyone out there wants to know the secret ingredient in red velvet cake or red velvet fudge, it is of course, "red flavor".
I saw some red velvet fudge in a case and because the mrs "needs" a sugar fix when she is preparing for exams - seems she is always preparing for exams and it shows - an anniversary gift of fudge was in order. So I ask the lady how it's made, "Let me get someone who knows, she makes it." Lady 2 shows up. "What is used to flavor the red velvet fudge?" I ask. They add "RED FLAVOR" to it. Uh, I mean is it cherry or strawberry or something like that. "No, it's just RED FLAVOR."

Since I didn't do it last night. I'll be on my knees scrubbing kitchen floor within the hour. And yes, I purchased knee pads for the job.

Have a good day.

I saw a video where they used
a ketchup squirt bottle to dispense
pancake batter over bacon strips.

Stop the bus!!! Bacon soap?!
Here's the deal you guys... I don't eat bacon and my ex used Gain soooooooo...... Peanutbutter!!! Peanutbutter everything!!! I've got some peanutbutter cookie coffee brewing right now mmmmmm

And a few other things while I was catching up on pages of your awesomely entertaining and inspiring posts...
***Someone mentioned Mosquitos... I just planted a couple of citronella plants on my patio by the door. It's really keeping them from coming inside!
***Burning Down the House will be in my head all day
***Della, You rock, sista! Love your spirit
***im going to find that pink Icecream stuff this weekend. And if I dont, I'm going to have a push pop instead.
***Naked Garden Day?!?! Hmmmmmm
***Here's a list of infused water ideas. Mint grows easily in a small pot. Great stuff!

I brought home a huge box of paperwork and am planning to lug it down to the pool. Looking forward to my first sober summer in 22 years!
Much love to all of you today. We got this.
