International Bacon Day - Today

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Bacon_Day

International Bacon Day or Bacon Day is an unofficial observance, often celebrated on the Saturday before US Labor Day (the first Monday of September). Some cultures, however, celebrate on December 30th, while others celebrate the day on the first Saturday in January after the new year.
Bacon day celebrations typically include social gatherings during which participants create and consume dishes containing bacon, including bacon-themed breakfasts, lunches, dinners, desserts, and drinks. Bacon Day gatherings may also include the consumption of soy bacon or turkey bacon.
---------
I celebrated by having bacon wrapped hot dogs. Half of them were sliced down the middle and sharp cheddar cheese was added.

Bacon Skates

Click the image to open in full size.

Ok, I admit it: there's no tech hook to this post. But I would be failing in my duties as your faithful Internet curator if I'd come across a photo of a young woman with bacon tied to her feet standing in a giant skillet holding a huge spatula and declined to post it.

So, yes, this photo was taken in November 1931 in Chehalis, Washington at the town's Egg Festival. The occasion was a try to break the world record for largest omelette. Two women tied bacon to their feet and skated around the warming skillet to grease it. Then a team of chefs cracked and beat 7,200 eggs and made a breakfast delight.

Vern Gorst, a self-taught pilot and entrepreneur was on-hand to capture the momentous occasion. He donated his photo collection to the University of Washignton, who uploaded it to Flickr Commons.
