Happy National Popcorn Day

Popcorn and movie, can't beat it, remember the old Jiffy Popcorn. Then along came the microwave and changed everything.....




Today is National Popcorn Day.  And according to a recent survey, 92% of us enjoy popcorn, or at least don't hate it.  Here are the ten most popular popcorn flavors . . .


1.  Classic butter and salt.  31% of people said it's their favorite way to eat popcorn.


2.  White cheddar, 16%.


3.  Caramel corn, also 16%.


4.  Kettle corn, 15%.  Women were 30% more likely to say they liked it than men.


5.  Regular cheddar, 11%.  So if you combine that with white cheddar, it's really 27%.


6.  Garlic, 3%.


7. "Turtle" popcorn.  That's popcorn covered with chocolate, 3%.


8.  Plain.  Only 2% of people said they prefer popcorn with nothing on it.


9.  Red velvet, 1%.  A couple different brands sell a red velvet flavor.  Apparently some people are big fans.


10.  "Zebra" popcorn, 1%.  It's kind of like "turtle" popcorn, but has chocolate AND white chocolate drizzled on top.


(Chester's Flamin' Hot Popcorn didn't make the list, but probably should have.)

Raising Children

Now this is a topic, I don't think there is a right way, or a wrong way. If you have just one child to raise or multiples, you would raise them somewhat differently. If the ages are spread a part, you again may raise them differently. Certainly if one child has special needs, you would raise them differently.
Then again, instilling basic fundamental steps is key.

Take the newly crowned Masters champion, Patrick Reed. He had his struggles growing up, like any child. Now let's fast-forward to his career as a professional golfer. Somewhere along the way he met his wife, who Mom & Dad dis not approve of. Reed playing the grandest golf tournament of all in his home state of Georgia had his wife by his side. His parents, no where to be seen. You see he has barred them from any tournament he plays.

This must be his way of "getting back" to the two who created him, brought him into this world. They raised him. Something went terribly wrong along the way.

Truth is, someda…

Are you a fubber?

Picked up on a new word today, FUBBER. Are you a fubber? What is fubber? Can I buy it at Wal-Mart, or Casey's? Is it available on Amazon? The answer to all those questions is hopefully, NO>

A fubber is a person. I'm sure you know one, are married to one, or work with one, or both. To be a FUBBER you are active scanning your cellphone, while in a conversation. As a person talks to you, you scroll through your messages or Facebook.

This denies the attention the person you're with deserves. It's rude, careless, and obnoxious.

Conclusion, don't be a FUBBER.  If someone is being a fubber to you, call them out on it. If what you're saying is important, grab the phone and keep it, until the conversation has concluded.

There's your tip of the day.
