Rocky’s Nut Brunch

Today let’s talk about something we have heard of – The RMS Titanic.  Such a remarkable ship for its time that had such a tragic ending.  We know the basics the the Titanic:  a British passenger ship that collided with an iceberg on April 15, 1912 on its maiden voyage.  This huge ship could accommodate over 2,453 passengers at one time and had 885 crew members which for the time period was amazing to say the least.  However, due to a coal strike causing many crossings to be cancelled, the maiden voyage had only 1,317 passengers with the crew members.  Out of 2,202 people on board the Titanic, only 710 people survived the aftermath of the sinking.  That’s almost 1,500 people passing at one time – can you believe that?!

But here is something for you to think about.  The Titanic sunk in 1912.

In 1898 – way before the time of the Titanic – author Morgan Robertson wrote a book called Titan or in some places you will call it Futility.  There are so many similarities between the two:

→ Both described as unsinkable.  Both had a shortage of lifeboats.  Both struck an iceberg.  Both when down in the month of April.  The majority of both of the passengers/crew members died.

So there you go – what are the odds?  Did Robertson glance into the future?  Or was a dream of something to take place?  You decide.

An Early Morning Funny


Nope, can’t see them at all when they’re turned around.  Snicker Snort

I don’t know why I find this picture so funny!  I really want it for my bedroom.  Mom can put it on my wall – I just laugh everytime I see it. 

Can you just picture farm animals actually doing this in front of their farmer?  I know I would!

And oh man – the talent of some people.  Who would have *ever* thought to do something like this and play with their food?  Give me 30 seconds with it.  I’ll enjoy the visionary aspects of it for 29 seconds and devour all of it in the last second – snort hee hee

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon,
Climb into the bottle they said. It would be funny they said. My brothers really got me into trouble on this one. Getting in was easy. Getting out took the firemen. Do your siblings get you in trouble? Signed Puss in Bottle

Dear Puss in Bottle,
WOW. That is such an amazing thing. I’ll have to remember that for Mouse… I mean I’ll have to keep in mind that she doesn’t do that for me. That’s it. We all play around but we haven’t done anything that severe to each other. Take care my friend and remember that just because your head can fit doesn’t mean you need to squeeze your body within.

Dear Bacon,
We absolutely love the movie Titanic. It’s so heartbreaking but it’s a wonderful love story. Do you have any movie that is your particular favorite?
Signed Jack and Rose


Dear Jack and Rose,
Aaww so cute. I have several favorites. I especially like College Road Trip and Charlottes Web. Take care my new friends.




Dear Bacon,
I’m a hard working pooch. Other pets look me up in the neighborhood when they’re friends go missing or owe them bones. If you ever need help, look me up. Signed, Dog the Original Bounty Hunter


Dear Dog,
I’m impressed, real impressed. I’ll keep your business card in my rolodex just in case I ever need it. Thank and happy hunting.



Dear Bacon,

We got pranked and busted. It’s not what it looks like – really. We were set up and my sister took the picture. Now she’s making Christmas cards out of it. What are we to do? Signed Busted


Dear Busted,
I say wear it because no one is going to believe it otherwise. Let people be jealous. Way to go little man!




Dear Bacon,
One swine to another, do you think my ears are big? Others on the farm make fun of them. I’m not sure why. It’s not like I can fly or anything. Signed Timothy

Dear Timothy,
Compared to a lot of things, no your ears are not big. They look to be adequate compared to your size. Don’t worry what others say my friend. They’re just jealous.
