Ah, you shouldn’t have got up on the table Elvis.
Happy New Year <3 With 2 kids and 3 cats I’m surprised they are awake for the midnight kiss. We have slept through 3 years of new year eve, and expecting the same to happen tonight :-D
Ah, yes, bacon—the real meaning of New Year’s!
Hmmm, bacon wrapped tater-tots. Could be tasty.
Here’s to another year of laughter and fun in BCN!
Is that a red floral boutonniere our Pucky is wearing? Whatever it is, it looks very smart.
Lupin looks slightly crazed in that last panel. >.>
“Happy New Year Bacon – now come to Pucky” ♥ ♥ ♥
ATTENTION! A MESSAGE TO ALL FRIENDS OF SKYKEY,MEGAN AND TRE-C. Please read the message I left on December 28 and 29 in the comments. It is NOT under the SKYKEY logo as I don’t have that info. Thank-you very much for all the LOVE. From Jeanne, Mrs. SKYKEY.
But, but, but, National Bacon Day is December 30th, not 31st!
Is it one of the cats or one of the kids who’s the New Year’s Baby, and, if so, which one?
She even wrapped the bacon in bacon!
“Hello Bacon. It’s me, Pucky.”
Bacon wrapped tortellini!
Poor Elvis – let him down before Puck and Lupin eat all the treats!
Lupin is shoveling it in now but in the morning is he going to be doing an Alka Seltzer “I can’t believe I ate the whole thing” commercial?
Old Stalwart Comrade would like bacon in his buckwheat groats.
And I wish all here a New Year that is as far from totally miserable as you can reasonably expect. Although that isn’t very far.
Happy New Year to Georgia, the Man, The Baby, The Toddler, Elvis, Puck, Lupin, Tommy, Sophie, Tabitha, Sir Fig, Baba, Burt, Natasha, Alice, Agnes, Violet, Tillie, Freddie, the ghostly news crew, and all the fans of BCN. My wish for 2019 is for all the lost kitties out in the cold to find forever homes.
A very Happy New Year to you Georgia and to your entire family. May 2019 bring you even more success.
Traditionally in Hawaii, almost everyone used to set off fireworks on New Year’s Eve. We would light aerials and fountains, then at midnight, everyone would light their long string of firecrackers! There were many a year when we didn’t have much tradewinds blowing so the fireworks smoke was so thick at midnight, you couldn’t see the road in front of you! Now, the only thing that’s legal to set off are firecrackers and you have to pay $25 for a permit to buy 5,000 firecrackers. We are now old (although not older than dirt like Baba Mouse!) so we no longer buy fireworks. We usually all fall asleep after dinner, then around 11:30 pm or so, someone will wake up and we stand on the balcony at midnight and watch all the neighbors light their fireworks and we wish each other Happy New Year! I will be at my sister’s house on New Year’s Eve so won’t be able to get to a computer, so I’ll take the opportunity now to wish Georgia, the Man, the Toddler, the Baby, Elvis, Puck, Lupin, Goldie, and all BCN orbsters a very big Hau’oli Makahiki Hou (@fashionblvd, this greeting was especially for you!)!!! May you all have a safe and healthy 2019!!
Happy New Year !
I will try almost anything that involves bacon. However, I can’t bring myself to try bacon ice cream or bacon flavored Jelly Bellies. (I would have wrapped the tater tots as well)
Happy New year everybody! Today is my day, when I started to translate BCN like official, without anybody help. 5 years ago! O_O Already 5 years I’m translate comic at 8 or 9 a.m. everywhere and ignoring bad condition O_O After 5 years I understand, that BCN is a life! (But russian fandom is living like 6 years already, but this first year translated another guy)
And from tomorrow a round of applause for CA-AB 485. Lets hope it works to reduce the million euthanised kitties every year.
I conducted a Food Manager training course for a brand-new, enormous church that had a huge commercial kitchen that they would be catering out of for weddings, funerals, etc. One of the women brought this fabulous dish to our first class. These are so good you’ll slap yourself for not having made these before!
Bacon-wrapped Sausages (we call this “Meat Candy”)—Ingredients: Pkg cocktail sausages, 1 lb. sliced bacon, 1 box brown sugarCut all slices of bacon into three pieces each. Wrap each cocktail sausage with one 1/3- piece of bacon putting “seam” where bacon overlaps downwards in shallow, glass/ceramic baking dish. After all sausages are wrapped and lined up in dish, shake brown sugar liberally over all and let marinate overnight in fridge. Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees. (Be sure to put in a cold oven if using a glass/ceramic dish.) At end of bake time, take out and drain liquid. Put back into oven to “crisp” for 10-15 minutes, or so.) Use cocktail picks, or toothpicks to serve.
Happy new Bacon.
Everything is better wrapped in bacon! Mmmmmmm! Happy New Year Mega Orbsters! (((((((((((((((((((((((((((((All))))))))))))))))))))))))))))) SkyKey, hoping every day that you’re alright. Sorries I’ve not been around as often as I’d like folks—just a very busy bee with luncheons and dinner parties to attend and then my whole house filled with friends staying over visiting with us. It’s been lovely but ohhh so exhausting! Today hopefully hubby and I can do a hike up a very high hill and visit with cute wooly sheepies up there in the fields. It’s a tradition with me on New Year’s Eve or on New Year’s Day to do a long walk and ponder over my life and decisions over the past year, and reflect. :-)
HAPPY NEW YEAR!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=8&v=LGzgPt9-_DY
A bacon-wrapped BCN made #4 on GoComics Top 5 today! Nice way to end the year!
Happy New Year Bacon to all!
I like bacon, but dates? That just seems wrong somehow.
Good morning and Happy New Year’s Eve, everyone! There are two sets of fireworks here in Barrie, one around 8:30 – 9:00PM for the little ones, and one at midnight after the countdown. I may be awake for the first one, but will be snoring gently for the second one. Fortunately, Paul and I have no running around to do today, and we are well stocked with munchables and potables. Hope everyone has a wonderful evening, and catch you all on the flip side!
Wishing everyone a safe and Happy New Year! (even if we’re doomed, Robin!) A special thank-you to Georgia and her extended family for providing such happiness every day.
No work for me tomorrow, so the fireworks idiots can shoot their crap off all night, and it won’t hurt me this time.
Sounds yummy to me!
Keep ’em coming, Woman! And thanks for a good year of strips! :-)
Sparkling cider! Lupin is a cat after my own heart.
Should all hors d’oeuvres be bacon-wrapped except for tater tots?
Should all hors d’oeuvres be bacon-wrapped and eaten by the lot?
For bacon-wrapped hors d’oeuvres, orb friends
For bacon-wrapped hors d’oeuvres,
We’ll celebrate with all orb friends
For bacon-wrapped hors d’oeuvres!
Happy Mew Year, Auld Lang Syne
Thinking of you today, Brein43, and wishing you well as you meet with your surgeon. Fingers crossed and prayers in process for the least scary outcome. xoxoxo
But……….where is Buzzy Mouse? He always looks so Bond-like in his tux! or does Bond look so Buzzy-like??
if you tilt your head slightly to the left, is that a frown face in the bubbles of Lupin’s cider and if so, was it intentional??
Here is a classic BCN New Year’s Eve strip, http://www.breakingcatnews.com/comic/bcn-new-year-countdown/. I know last year Georgia said something about wishing she could use it since New Years Eve was on Sunday, but since it had characters that hadn’t appeared yet she couldn’t. It might just show up the next time New Year’s Eve is on Sunday but until then we can enjoy the original, which Gloria does include Buzzy Mouse in his tux.
The Doctor told me I should eat a healthy Breakfast. Oatmeal, Cream of Wheat, something like that. It was pretty boring until I added Bacon.
Happy, Healthy, Safe New Year to everyone on the BCN Network.
We now return to our regularly scheduled Bacon…
Happy new year to all, in particular ShaunnMunn and Skykey. Good Thoughts still going out for Brein.
A happy and prosperous as well as delightful New Year to Georgia, Ryan, Luke, Gwen, Elvis, Lupin, Puck, and Goldie.
May 2019 be the best year yet for y’all!
Happy Mew Year, everybody! I remember last year I saw a play about what people do for New Years in other countries, and it was super interesting!
Quick poll: what are your New Year’s Resolutions?
Wishing you all a happy 2019!
I have something not wrapped in bacon. Bacon. Bacon dipped in chocolate. Thick sliced and dipped in 65% dark chocolate. MMMMMMMM Bacon AND Chocolate. Dessert of the gods.
Looking forward to 2019 and BCN adventures.
It occurred to me about half-way through this bacon mania, come February 5, 2019 it will be the Chinese Year of the PIG!
Bring on the rumaki!
Happy New Year Georgia and Breaking Cat News denizens.
Happy New Year to you too, Ronnie!
Lupin don’t eat the toothpicks.
Hey Folks! Do you all realize that the Chinese New Year (starting February 5 a little over a month to come) will actually be the Year of the Earth Pig?!!
Sooooo, it’s NO WONDER that everything is wrapped in BACON! (Though the yet-to-exist bacon-wrapped tater tots sound decadently DELICIOUS !! Yum!
Happy New Year to all !!!!!! -CtE :)
I’m going to go ahead and mention this because I like them (view at your own risk):
I’m with you, Lupin! THIS YEAR I LIVE!
“What does [Auld Lang Syne] mean? My whole life I don’t know what this song means. ‘Should old acquaintance be forgot’? Does that mean we should forget old acquaintances, or does it mean if we happened to forget them, we should remember them, which is not possible because we already forgot?” – When Harry Met Sally
Wishing everyone here, and especially Georgia and her family (two, four, and three-footed) a Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous New Year!
Special good wishes for Shaun, Skykey, Brein43, and anyone else who needs them!
And, oh yes, a wish of bacon for all!
Obviously the Woman knows how to properly live life, surrounded by cats and bacon.
“May the sun bring you new energy by day, may the moon restore you by night, may the rain wash away your worries, may the breeze blow new strength into your being, may you walk gently through the world and know its beauty all the days of your life.”~Apache prayer
And to all a good night.
Wishing everyone in the Orb and all their loved ones, human and animal, the very happiest, healthiest, and most prosperous 2019! And Skykey, we are all still missing you and hoping for your return in the new year! All y’all celebrate safely!
You don’t know what’s good until you’ve had a bacon-wrapped date.
Eternal vigilance is part of the price of cats.
I just want to wish everyone a very Happy New Year, however you celebrate it. I’m afraid I won’t be able to post any more comments until next year.
Want to wish Georgia and her family; all the cats in the Dunn household; and everyone in the BCN Mega Orb a very safe and Happy New Year.
I went to Amazon and ordered a new (used) camera. I got the same model as the one I was using that stopped working. That is a good thing because the new camera is missing some of the things I need in order to be able to use it.
Anyway, I took a picture of my Tommybaum.
Then I took one of Sooti (who was on the back of my couch):
Then I noticed Sunny sitting on my ottoman, so I had to take his picture too!
The battery pack for my new camera is as bad as the one for my old one, so I will still have to use the cord when I take pictures. I am very happy to have a camera again though.
Have you tried the Bacon Wrapped Bacon?
Thank you to everyone for your good wishes. I am overwhelmed by your kindness-each small note of support was a large gift.
Saw my surgeon today with mixed news. On the plus side, needle and IV terror will be dealt with with a couple Xanax shortly beforehand. Major hurdle mitigated. Yay !
On the down side the mass was revealed to be more than fluid. Large solid component in or near the end of the digestive track, too. Surprise !
Still no idea re benign/ malignant, but colonoscopy on the 9th, major re plumbing job on the 10th :). Trying to keep my sense of humor.
Women and those who love them, please do not ignore those seemingly small changes. Bloating. Unexpected appetite loss and weight loss. Uncharacteristically frequent trips to the bathroom. A little tenderness in the abdomen. Probably nothing almost every time, but this started for me in early December, 11 days ago I saw my doctor, and 10 days from now I have pretty extensive surgery. No other symptoms, no noticeable pain.
Everyone traveling tonight, please be careful.
Those of you up here in the PNW, in case you haven’t heard, it’s freezing tonight.
My first client this morning was at 6:00am, and the defrosters were out then.
NWS says that frost and black ice are likely, depending where you are.
They are even expecting some road freezing in municipal/urban ares.
Please take care if you need to be on the roads tonight, or early tomorrow.
There isn’t much that can’t be improved by wrapping it in bacon.
Happy New Year to one and all here at BCN! May it be kind, prosperous and generous to us all!
HOW COULD SHE LET THE TATER TOTS ESCAPE!????!
