    Driving south on 101 this morning, flashing signs directing traffic to the San Jose Bacon Festival were already in place along the freeway exits. Naturally, I had to google to find out what this might be at the first opportunity. And here it is,

                    Has anyone been to the Bodega festival and can say what it was like?

                      I've been twice, once quite awhile ago when it was still on the coast and once a few years ago after it had moved to Bodega.

                      Nothing from the second visit stands out in my memory; all I can say is that we haven't felt compelled to return since.
