Blogoversary II - Bacon and Beer

What 2 things set a guy's heart a-flutter? Love and marriage? A horse and carriage? Betty Jo and her sister Flo? A big screen TV and sports channels free? Nope none of the above, although Betty Jo and her sister Flo watching sports with me might be interesting. But I digress. Nothing gets those juices flowin' and those brain cells explodin' more than bacon and beer. I think it must be a guy thing, or something utterly pavlovian, but I know my tongue simply starts droolin' when I see bacon or beer. And over the last two years I've done plenty of droolin' as the following highlights will attest.

Push button receive bacon??? My life had no meaning until this very moment. Now, I must find that button.
I know what I'm doing with my next batch of bacon. CHOCOLATE!! Sounds strange, but I'll try anything once.
I'm so jealous I'm celebrating my one-year bloggiversary <-- note different spelling so mine is completely different from yours -- with donuts and coffee. But you've got bacon and beer. Somehow I think you'll have more visitors. ;)

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
