Bacon

Today's post is not about the delicious breakfast item that is apart of your typical American diet. It's not about money or how to bring home the bacon. It's about Kevin Bacon, well, the Bacon Number. And Google. If you watch a lot of Hollywood films or are a movie buff then you've probably heard of the term six degrees of Kevin Bacon which has become a parlor game that is a variation on six degrees of separation which posits that any two people on Earth are six acquaintance links apart. The Bacon Number of an actor is the number of degree of separation he or she has from Kevin Bacon. For example, the Bacon Number for Kevin Bacon is 0. Those actor who has worked directly with Bacon has a Bacon Number of 1. The six degrees of Kevin Bacon game is about to get better as Google has built the Bacon number into it's search engine. There's no special website but Google that you can play the game on. Want to know Johnny Depp's Bacon Number? Type in Google Search "Bacon Number Johnny Depp" and the search engine will reveal that "Johnny Depps Bacon Number is 2". Movie aficionados have fun with this because I know I will.

So it's been an awesome Saturday.

Here is a pic of my University of Cincinnati diploma.

Pretty soon Thanksgiving will be here and we'll all be eating Turkey with our families. Then just like that we'll be opening up presents on Christmas and ringing in 2017 on New Year's.

Some families have holiday traditions. I want to start a holiday tradition where we help out the less fortunate. Everyday is a struggle for each one of us but at least we have food on our tables and a roof over our heads. There are just way too many people on the streets hungry and freezing. We shouldn't let this go on. Not on our watch.

With the power of the internet we can achieve so much in so little time. We can use this power to help others. We don't even have to spend our own money. Did you know that there are free donation sites out there right now that you can visit everyday and donate for fr…
