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. ;)

That's how powerful your message of cholesterol is.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
