Pig Candy!

Yeah, it's naughty good. The great folks at Burger's Smokehouse sent me some of their "crazy thick" (1/4") dry-cured bacon to try, so I thought I'd give it a proper treatment. Right out of the gate, let me say that this bacon is outstanding! Order some up, and thank me later. I spent about half of my childhood just down the road from them in Columbia, Missouri, so that makes it even more special for me. OK, if you've never made or experienced pig candy, strap yourself in for a serious porcine indulgence.

Ingredients1 lb Thick-cut peppered bacon, preferably Burger's 1/2 cup Dark brown sugar (more as needed)1/4 cup Pure maple syrup1/4 tsp Cayenne MethodPreheat your oven to 375*. Mix the syrup and cayenne well in a small bowl and set aside. Coat both sides of each bacon slice generously with brown sugar. Enjoy, but try not to eat it all at once.

The Bread Code Tells You When a Loaf Was Baked. Ever wonder what the colors of the tie tags on loaves of bread represent?

The Bread Code Tells You When a Loaf Was Baked

They're a code designating the day of the week on which a loaf was baked: * Blue: Monday * Green: Tuesday * Red: Thursday * White: Friday * Yellow: Saturday[...]An easy way to remember it, though, is to simply recall the alphabet. The colors run in alphabetical order, so the earlier they appear in the alphabet, the earlier in the week the bread was baked. And it’s true. Even the ever-cynical backs it up.

Most of Dettmer’s focus is on books, favoring out of date encyclopedias, medical journals, illustration books and dictionaries.

Artist Brian Dettmer Carves Old Books into Intricate Narrative Sculptures...

He begins carving away arbitrarily at the pages, letting the images reveal themselves as he moves through his process. He seals the edges of the books to ensure precision, which also transforms the splayed edges to look like a smooth and sanded piece of wood. Carefully extracting bits and pieces, he creates a narrative within the books’ contents, revealing selected sentences and images. The spines are bent and contorted to juxtapose different sections of the books together. No sections are removed or added, Dettmer simply works with the existing structure of each book. The resulting beautiful sculptures completely reinterpret the original intention of each book.

Garden path sentence. According to one current psycholinguistic theory, as a person reads a garden path sentence, the reader builds up a structure of meaning one word at a time. At some point, it becomes clear to the reader that the next word or phrase cannot be incorporated into the structure built up thus far; it is inconsistent with the path down which they have been led. Garden path sentences are less common in spoken communication because the prosodic qualities of speech (such as the stress and the tone of voice) often serve to resolve ambiguities in the written text.
