Photo Tuesday: A Brick in Ming’s Tomb – Beijing, China

On September 21, 2010, in Photography, by John Giaconia

The name of the manufacturer stamped into a brick at Ming’s Tomb, near Beijing, China. I believe this was done so that if the brick was found to be inferior, they knew where to place the blame.

On September 17, 2010, in Bacon, by John Giaconia

If you’ve got a survival stash for the coming Zombie apocalypse, you’d be crazy not to include this canned bacon with a 10 year shelf life.  The folks over at browardpalmbeach.com have put together a full review of their encounter with tactical bacon while squeezing off a few rounds at the local firing range.   You can read all about it here http://blogs.browardpalmbeach.com/cleanplatecharlie/2010/09/tactical_bacon_bacon_in_a_can.php

It sells for $16 a can and can be picked up from various retailers including Think Geek http://www.thinkgeek.com/caffeine/wacky-edibles/c399/ and is made by CMGG Inc, which is primarily a Guns and Ammo company.  And while you’re there, you can check out their line of Tactical Bacon t-shirts.

Friday Bacon: The Maple Bacon Latte

On September 3, 2010, in Bacon, by John Giaconia

If you thought bacon + rocketry had pizzaz, why not try Bacon and Caffeine?  Ever heard of a Maple Bacon Latte?

Thanks to Leann for passing this along to me because now I know where to go in San Francisco to get a Latte with Maple syrup and homemade bacon bits.  Urbandaddy.com describes it as “the Canadian Mountie of coffee drinks.”

It sounds like this $5 king of all wake-me-up drinks is made from top notch ingredients, so I may have to wrangle me up a cup in the City this weekend.

Here’s a link to the full article complete with beautiful bacon photo goodness:
