(Saw this at Bass Pro Shops – couldn’t resist!)
Sorry, boys and girls.
(Bacon as bun!)
I know it’s been an unconscionably long time since my last blog.
I’ve been busy.
Like ‘nuts’ busy.
(Original? There’s more than one?)
Not to worry, though.
(An explosion of bacon!)
I swore to myself that the first thing I would do…
(In case of emergency, administer bacon!)
Once I got back to the old blog site…
(Because nothing says ‘birthday’ like bacon frosting!)
Was give you a bacon update!
(Bacon has few fans as loyal as Garfield!)
And here it is.
(Home sweet home!)
Just for you.
(Check out the bottom left corner. COR! It’s kosher!)
I’d say, “It’s good for you!”…
(Who’s behind this anarchist movement?)
But we all know I’d be toying with the truth.
Just when you thought the end was near…
And you’d given up all hope…
More bacon photos!
(Gold sprinkled bacon)
It gives life a sense of purpose.
(As far as I can tell, this is bacon/cheese jello)
OK, a few more.
(Weave bacon taco!)
That bacon taco deserves another photo.
(Bacon taco with chocolate sauce and peanuts!)
I’ve been away for a while.
(Manly, yes. But I like it too!)
And I have a lot of bacon photos!
(Bacon wrapped spam!)
And when I say, “a lot”…
I mean “a lot!”

Martian Anniversary Selfie (NASA)
Explanation: June 24th marked the first full Martian year of the Curiosity Rover’s exploration of the surface of the Red Planet. That’s 687 Earth days or 669 sols since its landing on August 5, 2012. To celebrate, consider this self-portrait of the car-sized robot posing next to a rocky outcrop dubbed Windjana, its recent drilling and sampling site.
The mosaicked selfie was constructed with frames taken this April and May using the rover’s Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI), intended for close-up work and mounted at the end of the rover’s robotic arm. The MAHLI frames used exclude sections that show the arm itself and so MAHLI and the robotic arm are not seen. Famous for panoramic views, the rover’s Mastcam is visible though, on top of the tall mast staring toward the left and down at the drill hole.
Thanks, as always, to NASA and their amazing site, Astronomy Picture of the Day!

Bacon by any other Name would Smell as Sweet
Boys and girls…
It’s time again to delve into my bacon fascination.
For those new to these posts…
I need to make something clear…
I am not obsessed with bacon, per se.
I am, however, fascinated by people’s obsession with bacon…
And the myriad ways that obsession expresses itself.
Here are but a few examples…
Some more alarming than others!
There seems to be no limit to how bacon can be inserted into people’s daily lives…
As well as their tummies.
The range of bacon uses is only limited…
(Saw these bacon lollipops sold at my local 7-11!)
By the imagination of the bacon users…
And, presumably, the pork marketing boards.
They provide bacon lovers…
And those of us who study them…
Countless hours of harmless fun…
(Wouldn’t this make the ideal bacon food cart?)
As bacon sits there…
On a plate…
Waiting to kill them.
And most of all…
Thank you once again to the many friends & readers who have sent me bacon-related photos and suggestions.
I couldn’t have done it without you… or people very much like you.

I’ve always loved Japanese red maples.
Saw this photo the other day and it simply took my breath away.
Mount Fuji with Japanese red maples.
