Way back in the early 70's I was intrigued with a startup company making ATMs for small banks. The company named BACON (BAnk COmputer Network) offered a highly reasonable alternative to the then super expensive ATMs sold by the big boys like Diebold and IBM.
Three of us bought blocks of BACON stock cheap and watched it start to skyrocket over the next few months. At that same time in 1972 Hal Roach created his now famous colorful Makin Bacon cartoon. Use your imagination what Makin Bacon looked like. I bought a T-shirt and wore it in one morning and cracked my buddies up until they were falling on the floor!
My shirt is lost to the ages, but today it would have been as funny now as then.
Epilogue...as fast as that stock had escalated BACON was hit with some patent lawsuit and the stock started down. At least all 3 of us got out with doubling our money, but that was nothing like the instant windfall we once thought we had.
Even without my au jus one of my favorite comfort meals from childhood is the recipe from my late Mother which she simply called beef and noodles. A nice 2 or 3 pound chuck roast slow cooked for hours then ripped apart and finished in a big pot of noodles served us for several meals. I am so thankful that she gave my wife her detailed recipe. Chuck roasts rock!
LOL - guys! But this was supposed to be in a wealthier Northern burb, not Southern and during day light hours where and when those who participate in that killing a.k.a. target practice activity are typically in bed sleeping off their drug induced time outs!
