Mark Your Calendars – REMINDER

Me and my pal Fozzie started Shopping Around the World in April.  We asked for all of you to post prices on certain items in your part of town. We are going to do it again this month on Wednesday, June 25, 2014.

Do a posting on your blog linked back to mine.  That way we can keep track of all of the different prices.

It should be interesting to see the differences between different countries all over.  Mark your calendar so you can do a posting with us.

These are the suggestions of our friends Reilly and Denny. – thanks guys! Show your prices for the following:

  • Price of cable services for one month – what do you get for that price?
  • A 12 ounce box (360 grams) of Cornflakes
  • A 15 ounce package (432 grams) of Oreos or other cream filled cookies.
  • A 7 ounce bag (225 grams) of Lay’s potato chips.
  • 1 pound of real butter.
  • A 6 ounce can of peanuts.

Come join the fun of Shopping Around the World – mark your calendars Wednesday, June 25, 2014!

If you have suggestions for the July issue, please send them to me at baconthompson@gmail.com

.

ALSO – Don’t forget about Bacon’s Show and Tell scheduled for Monday, June 30, 2014.

On this day – post a picture and share your first toy or your favorite childhood toy.  Tell us what it meant to you and if you still have it.  We can’t wait to read and see all of the wonderful childhood toys!

Be Grateful

20130409-084128.jpg

What if today, we decide to do this.

We can be grateful for everything.  Just for one day today.  Keep a smile on our face and a pep in our step.  Have an off limit kind of stress free day.

Are you game?  I know we are going to try here at the Hotel Thompson.  I’m even going to try to be grateful for those two purr things here.

Good luck and let me know how it works for you.  We can do this!

I’m an Official Southern Pig – Snort

In some parts of the south, they tell you that your not officially a southern until you’ve had the basics.  The basics could be many things but some of them are collard greens, grits, sweet tea, fried chicken, sweet potato pie, macaroni and cheese and boiled peanuts.  I’ve had several of these things.  It makes sense.  My mom was born and raised in the south.  You know just between you and me they call people like my momma GRITS – Girls Raised in the South.  Snort

Well, mom let me try one of these things that I haven’t had…boiled peanuts.  Oh goodness – they are simply delicious.  And no, I didn’t have them in a RC Cola and no I didn’t have them on ice cream which is common here.  I had them straight up out of the shell.  mmm.  Boiling them just brings out a different flavor.  First of all, they’re soft so there is no crunch.  You boiled them in seasoned water right over an open flame.  Mom knows a guy that knows a guy that fixes them – LOL.  You break open a shell and juice goes everywhere.  Then you see the tasty little morsel.  You pop it in your mouth and it’s still hot from the flame – SHUT THE FRONT DOOR – the taste explodes in your  mouth.  It’s a little salty, sometimes it can be a little spicy according to the seasoning, and they are God’s tasty little morsels. 

If you haven’t tried any yet, what are you waiting for?  Try them now and let me know what you think.  Dad never ate any until mom introduced him.  Now he can’t stay out of them.  They are that good!
