A Sad Day For Bacon

There is a restaurant in San Francisco called "Bacon! Bacon!" that serves bacon everything. The City has temporarily closes it down. The neighbors have been complaining of the smell of the disposed bacon grease permeating the air.

Make sure you do click on the "Today" logo. There is hope in the air.

Interesting. They should bottle it and sell it.

Well, they fought City Hall and sort of won. They have to install a new exhaust system.

Clearly, not everyone feels as passionately about the wonders of bacon as some of us here. I found our visitors from FL are luke warm at best about bacon and prefer ham or sausages.

Perhaps there's some kind of support group for these people that can help them become one with bacon.

Well, I wouldn't want to be smelling bacon all the time. I only want to smell bacon when I'm going to eat it. We have a rule at this house. If you make bacon smell, you better make enough for everyone in the house who can smell it. (Including any four legged friends.)

Great rule

May I extend my deepest sympathies for those FL folks. They definitely need to go into a rehab program.

No they don't. Leaves more bacon for the rest of us.

Same rule here! When Himself should be getting up but he isn't, and I'm losing patience with waiting for him, I turn on my Bacon Alarm Clock. Nuke a slice or two in the microwave (between paper towels) and wave it under his nose when it's done. Works every time. "The Smell Alarm" - should be working on the schematics for a real clock like that. Instead of a buzzer or radio you wake to the smell of bacon! (OR coffee. OR cinnamon rolls. OR sausage...so many choices, so few settings...)
