Forget bbq pulled pork... I present to you... BBQ PULLED BACON.

I basically drooled so much I became completely dehydrated and they had to hook me up to a drip of homemade lemonade.

We just found out #LEGO hands are the perfect size for cables!! Minds blown. http://bit.ly/1oYdoD9

2Spinout sugru-ed this LEGO plate to his desk "Since I discovered this by accident it’s my way of organizing things. It’s not just that #sugru loves LEGO – LEGO loves sugru too. Sounds like a never ending love story!"

A Happy New Year to all my friends, casual followers, those who argue against everything I post and even my favorite trolls  I want to wish you all a happy and healthy 2015!  As is becoming a tradition on the new year I like to post this incredible short piece by Carl Sagan - The Pale Blue Dot.  It helps put all of our lives into perspective in a very powerful way.  

For those of you who have seen it before, this is a great time to hear it again as a reminder of our place in the universe and for those of you who have never heard it please take out just a few minutes to listen and watch.  This should be required lightning for anyone wanting to join the human race!

So for my final 2014 post, I offer a toast: Here is to hoping that in 2015 we can all get along just a little bit better then we did in 2014 and work toward progress for all.  We need to remember that each and every one of us are stuck together on this little rock flying through space! 


If you look carefully at the NASA photo in the video opening, you will see a little white dot. This minute speck is Earth seen from the Voyager 1 spacecraft as it heads for the exits of our solar system, nearly 4 billion miles away. The photo was taken back in 1990.

Take it away Carl:
=========================
"Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every “superstar,” every “supreme leader,” every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there–on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner, how frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds.

Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.

The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand.

It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known."

– Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot, 1994

Did you know that bacon is talked about five times more often than sausage online?

This October, during National Sausage Month, Pillsbury Toaster Scrambles is announcing 50 percent more meat (both bacon and sausage!), egg and cheese in its new product recipe.

And in the name of #MeatEquality, the brand is aiming to show that sausage deserves to be equally famous on the Internet.

Take a look at all the facts in the Toaster Scrambles Breakfast #MeatEquality infographic, below!

Service here was beyond terrible. We were served food that was previously served to another table. The other table added sauces etc to the food, then the server took it back and tried to pass it off on us as our order. Very poor. Will not be going back. No apology, no action to make it right. I would recommend against this "restaurant"!
