Lightning, Cows and Bacon.

Happy Wednesday,

I've been having a lot of epiphanies lately, although I keep forgetting to write them down. I promise, the next one I have I will record and share with you all!
That said, I was wondering - does anybody else get the sense of achievement I do when writing a text message and using all the characters for one page precisely?
ie. Typing a reply, with correct spellings and punctuation and ending on a full stop with the last character.
Anybody? No? Just me then I guess.
(Small things make me smile) like this puppy:

On a blog that I follow one of the contributors has vowed to live off NOTHING but "American Bacon" for the whole month of february! Yeah, seriously. I'm actually chuckling to myself thinking about it as I'm typing this. Here's a quote from his pledge:
I, Michael J. Nelson will eat nothing but bacon. Nothing, my friends, but bacon. Why? Because bacon is nature’s finest and most nourishing food.

His wife even managed to find him bacon in a jar for snacks.

Good luck to you Mike!
This is one train wreck I will definitely keep an eye on.

As we're on the subject of farm animals....
I found this in my email inbox yesterday:

Erm, OUCH! Apparently this poor cow, was struck by lightning at a property near Gladstone last month and survived! Impossible you may think, but not according to JCU Professor of Geo-Sciences, Jon Nott:

"Cows are susceptible to lightning strikes because of both sets of legs being on the ground, and they're eating grass from where electricity is conducted from the strike so it is possible it happened but, more often than not, cows die from it. The electricity would enter the front set of legs and exit out the back legs so, again, based on the picture, it is possible it happened."

That is just incrazy! A burn like that would no doubt kill the cow eventually from infection. I hope it's owner has the sense and deceny to put it down and dispose of the carcus instead of feeding it to other cows or selling it to cheap supermarkets.

I've got a couple of entries coming up in the next week or so which are actually informative - Blackberry Bold disassembly/reassembley tutorial and a Feature on hot new Band "Duke" so forgive my tangents. lol.

It's odd, because sometimes you dont know if anyone else is reading it, and although that isnt what motivates me, its encouraging when Im reminded that some people are.

Thankyou Mr. Moyer
