TIL about what I'm calling bacon crack. Baked bacon in the oven 23 minutes at 350. This is the drippings in the pan that I then scraped up. 10x better than the bacon.

Wife's elderly grandparents would fry country ham up in a skillet and the white fat on the edges would get cut off and fried up. 

Me bring a Yankee would ask them in rural Alabama; you going to eat that? Yes, crackle or crackling?

Yesterday I learned two things.

The first, doctor seuss is now a brand. Thing 2 has a thing at school to read a doctor Seuss book with family. Ok, we have a bunch. I start looking, none of them are written by Dr Seuss anymore. His son who took over yes, but also s bunch of really random writers.

 

The second.

yes, that's my pole saw that can give me "11 feet of reach". Sounds like a good idea on paper, looks like fun. But Holy crap is it heavy and unwieldy. That little chainsaw head goes up in weight a hell of a lot with the 3 foot extension added in.

TIL that rupturing the tendons in your biceps is pretty damn painful.  Also makes your arm look funny, though not in a funny "ha-ha" kind of way. 
 

It would be time to scrap this body out if I hadn't installed all these aftermarket parts, including a new knee this Wednesday. 
 

And what was I doing to tear up the bicep?  Turning a screwdriver. indecision

Ouch. 

It always sucks seriously injuring yourself doing mundane things... when I snapped my Achilles (hard to believe it's been like 6-7 years now) everyone who knew me assumed that it happened biking... and then looked dumbfounded when I said "No, I was pushing a car..."
