60 DAYS UNTIL SPRING

Life is a Special Occasion!
It’s National Popcorn Day! Americans eat about 16 billion quarts of popcorn each year. That’s about 51 quarts per person, which makes it one of the most popular snacks in the country. It is also one of the oldest. To celebrate National Popcorn Day, make your favorite kind of popcorn and enjoy it while watching a movie with your friends!
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Friendship is, the popcorn in the cinema of life.
Movies and popcorn do always seem to go together. It’s a favorite snack here at my house. I used to make microwave popcorn a lot but have found that nothing beats the taste it has when it’s popped in a pan on the stove. I heat one tablespoon oil in the bottom of a pan, let it heat on medium, drop in a few kernels of corn and when one pops add 1/2 cup popcorn, then put the lid on the pan and shake it around. When the popping ceases you know it’s done and quickly remove from the heat. So simple, but so good. Of course I use salt and butter too but if you are watching your diet, it is still good without it. Air popped popcorn is naturally high in dietary fiber and antioxidants, low in calories and fat, and free of sugar and sodium.
This week looks like it will be anther cold one here. I’ve been sorting out and putting things in some semblance of order. For the like of me, I don’t know just how one person can make such a mess. There’s no one here but me, so I am the one responsible. It’s nice that these winter days give me plenty of time to do things, but I am so looking forward to Spring when I can get outdoors.
I hope you all have a TERRIFIC Tuesday !

Of course life is bizarre, the more bizarre it gets, the more interesting it is. The only way to approach it is to make yourself some popcorn and enjoy the show.
