Back when I was long term substitute teaching for one class I had the kids make a father's day gift where we filled canning jars with carmel corn. Then the instructional aide helped them put a pretty bow on top of each as a decoration. Crunchy carmel corn will always be a good little snack, although now it is a little hard on my teeth these days.

Hi again G-Ma Johnson, I missed it totally, the part where you got told off. Weeeell, it happens doesn't it and I just know you knew how to handle that.

As for your question about my parrot, Jado, he eats everything we do plus his own food. He loves ice cream and popcicles are one of his favs, he eats it so fast it makes him sneeze; his own little brain-freeze.

Have agreat day today dear. thanx again.

Hiya Well yum I am sitting in New Zealand, all the stores are closed, and I haven"t got, any pop corn in the cupboard, will rectify tommorrow, I love people telling me off, cos then I can vent, whatever is annoying me at a later date, by ringing them up and for absolutely no reason, because they have usually forgotten, ever telling me off. I tell them off.

Its funn, they usually say Well How childish, or something like that.

You take care and eat some of that popcorn for moi', until I can make mine.
