Bacon-related Post of the Week

Me and Gina recently put together a "Family Disaster Plan". As you probably know, havng canned food on hand is an important part of emergency preparedness. Thankfully, this company has just introduced a line of canned bacon! Maybe we'll buy a case of it.

1. Open Can.
2. Remove bacon.
3. Unfold wrapping.
4. Say "Whoa that actually looks really good for canned bacon."

For sale - for real! - at this website.

Anyone remember Yaz? The synthop band from Britain? Well I sure do. Me and a few friends went to their concert Tuesday night at the Orpheum. It was a total flashback to the 80's....I just kept remembering those summer nights dancing under the stars at Studio K with my bangs spiked high, wearing pointy black boots, with my red lipstick on.

I remembered every song. If you saw a very pregnant lady doing the "bowling" dance in the aisles Tuesday night at the Orpehum, there's a good chance that was me.

Awesome, totally awesome!
Alison Moyet's vocals kick some serious butt!

A flattened penny for your thoughts

For those of you that don't know, Heath is a collector of ALL things. I kid you not. From CD's, records, DVD's, magazines, and books, to shot glasses, hockey pucks, ticket stubs, and KISS memorabilia....the list can go on and on. TRUST ME.

One thing he collects that cracks me up are pennies. Not just regular old pennies, but those novelty pennies you get at say, Disneyland. The ones where you put a penny in a machine, turn the handle, and out pops a flattened version with some sort of picture on it. He turns all giddy when he sees one of those machines. Like a kid in a candy shop. Or a fan on the first day of football season.

Below is play by play of Heath at one of those penny machines while we were up at the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway.

Notice the excitement in his eyes as he puts .51 cents into the machine:
There he goes spinning the handle....

And out pops a fabulous flattened penny for his collection:
When we got home , he immediately found his passport and added the Palm Springs Aerial penny to his collection:More than half way there for a completed book!It's the little things in life that make you happy, right?
