  1. So there is a day that fits me to a "T" - my middle name is popcorn!

  2. I see Dan just missed his National Holiday...I'll have to let him know, although I know he honored it by eating a bag last night.

  3. Here I am a day late and a dollar short again. I always email the grandkiddos when I find a good National day. I love popcorn and usually have it micro style then sprinkle a little Parmesan cheese and cayenne pepper on it. Hubby I pop on top of the stove so I can restrict his salt, bummer! Thanks for the poppin' info, I always enjoy the rest of the story!

    God bless!
