  1. *giggle* That’s spelled “BACN.”

    Posted by Sallie Goetsch (rhymes with "sketch")  on  11/12  at  05:31 AM
  2. Yes I know, Sallie :) But I thought it might intrigue people more if I wrote ‘bacon,’ and in lower case, in the show notes…

  3. I chuckled at ‘bacon’, and felt for Shel. Thanks for your interest in my ‘friends’ question, I chose Nestlé because my new Nescafé jar had a web based bonus invite on the top.

    BTW are you still using Twitter, I just signed inWokingham up but your last update is announcing #277, maybe have you moved on to Skype now you have a new phone?

    Cheers, Mike
