Nothing better than homemade bacon in homemade bread with lashings of New Zealand butter............breakfast time.

Possibly the greatest smell known to mankind (a certain religious group excepted) is the smell of bacon cooking in the open air in the morning. Orgasmic, almost.

Up at Big C they used to have bacon, average quality, but the last few times I couldn't get any.

Its been a couple of years since I was down that way and Yorkies may have gone but I got some decent bacon at a little bakery up by Mabprachan lake - about half way round and hang a right, the road that goes to highway 36. I believe its the 3240 and its in a parade of about 6 old shophouses on the left hand side.

I have never had a problem with Brussel Sprouts.  My mum had a way of cooking them which made them tasty.

Back home, we never picked our sprouts in the garden "until they had their first touch of frost" the then tasted very good, bit difficult to wait for first frost here!!!

p.s. Home was "Bonnie Scotland"

A lot off people say that about a lot off different food. If one Listens to all the BS what one can eat one will starve to dead . You Only live Once one doesn't know if one dies at  80 or 85 . you be dead once's you dead it Doesn't matter if it's 80 or 85. 😜

It's the quality of life that matters. Why spend several miserable years depending on meds to live out your days?

I have been making my own bacon, unsmoked ham and sausages for a few years now and I reckon that I should be good for a few years.

 

My mum used to cook bacon and eggs, 25 years in the military I used to eat them all the time. My first wife cooked them once a week but now I cook them myself.

 

14 years ago I had 2 stents put in.

 

BTW I am 76 and still going fairly well.

The reason you had stents put in to your arteries, Bill, was that they became clogged from (mainly) consuming processed meat products over the years. It's a slow disease, that's why people ignore the symptoms. By continuing your same eating habits there is a high risk of a similar heart attack.

Consistently reported by organisations with close relationships with the food industry which prefers us to eat multi-processed , sterilised and poisoned vegetable diets (think Monsanto, pesticides, etc).

Yes, another example of highly processed junk foods. I don't touch them, by sticking to my whole food, plant based lifestyle.

While I  am opposed to the consumption of Western style fast food and processed nibbles I do from time to time indulge in said fast foods from time to time.  But not MacDonalds or KFC,  more Spiro and Cons fine take away.  Their real,  but I haven't seen them for 4 years.   The problem in Melbourne Australia is all the Spiro & Con take away places are being sold to Chinese interests...who don't seem to have the same knowledge as the Greeks in the fine art of take away.  Luckily on my return to my ancesteral home,  Cairns,  I  can indulge In a hamburger with the lot that comes close to the endering taste of a Spiro made one with the lot....20 cents extra for pineapple ring.  Ah the old days!

Now I eat bacon and egg perhaps once a week, mainly at lunch to make a change from sandwiches on home made rolls.

 

I have been on meds for the last 14 years but they certainly haven't been miserable ones. I have had the joy of watching and helping my second son to grow up, the joy of being with my second wife through 20 years of marriage, the enjoyment of good friends both Thai and farang.

 

It has been a great 76 years and I am looking forward to a telegram from King William V delivered by a telegram messenger boy on his BSA 125 cc Bantam.

Man oh man!  That looks a lot like my first Bantam!   All it requires to be like mine is a total rust job,  a smashed glass in the headlight, tears and cracks in the seat, bald tyres and dint in the fuel tank.  Hey,  I  was 14 with a part time job that paid Jack and the only other money I  got was 10 bob on my birthday From grandpa and a quid from Aunty Mary at Christmas.  I did get lucky about 6 months later when cousin Ricky gave me his Bantam which was run down but still good for a Bantam.  Ricky had saved enough for a new BSA 650...lucky Ricky!
