Happy Bacon Day!

We interrupt our normal genealogical programming to bring you this very important message:

Some of you may or may not know that I am a fan of bacon.  Okay, I love bacon.  Yes, it's not the healthiest food item on the menu, but it's SO ... DARN ... YUMMY!  (It actually ranks right up there with real butter ... but I digress, this is about the bacon).

My mom always teased me and my siblings and said that we would eat just about anything if it was wrapped in bacon.  She is probably right.  What isn't better with bacon?  Green beans?  Better.  Oysters?  Better.  Filet Mignon?  Duh.  

There are even conventions for bacon!  And now ... BACON DAY!  I'm in heaven!

Bacon even helps heal your boo-boos:
Obviously, bacon has permeated pretty much every part of my life.  So ... Happy Bacon Day!  I'm gonna go have some right now.
