Please may I pick your brains?

I have bought a bacon hock from the farm shop. I have cured my own in the past, but I have noticed today as I went to defrost it, that it specifically says 'bacon hock'.

Do you think this means that it has already been cured, or do I cure it?

If it says it's a bacon hock, as opposed to a pork hock, then I would say yes it's cured.

Do you feel burned out with all of the things that you need to do? Do you want to get some rest after worrying too much about the things that are happening in your life? I might not know your answers but I have this feeling that the answer's yes. Anyway, I actually think that these things are what I badly need in order to continue with life so I tried to look for ways that will help me academically. This is why I must say that I am so glad I found 99papers because they were able to help me have the rest I have been trying to get.
