It's National Popcorn Day!

Kernels Popcorn Do you know this place?
It is the best place to get popcorn!

At least the kind we don't make for ourselves.

I am a big fan of Jalapeno Jack cheese and they do a great version of it as a popcorn flavour, much better than the movie theatre kind.

My second favourite flavour is Caramel which is a candy-coated popcorn. I can't eat the regular stuff but they have a low-cal version which is nearly as good and only has about half the sugar. That is my main order, one small Jalapeno Jack and one small Low-Cal Caramel.

I just found out today that I can order it online and then just go to the kiosk to pick it up or if I can't get there have my daughter come get my POP and go pick it up for me. One more helpful thing to know for the housebound.

Because I am becoming more health conscious I decided to search around and see if I could find any nutritional information on the products. I found an ingredients and allergens page which was a bit of an eye-opener but is not much different than what I would add myself if I were making it at home.

I did a bit more exploring and discovered that their charity of choice is Autism Speaks Canada which is dear to my heart as I have two grandsons who were diagnosed with it. Just one more reason to love this place.

One last thing, take a look at their menu, there is a flavour there for everybody and remember popcorn is gluten-free, high fibre and has much fewer calories than potato chips even with the extras.

I had not intended this to be an ad for Kernels but like I said I love popcorn and I love this place!

Hello March

May the sun be with us! Except with the quiet coming of March be on the lookout for at least one more big storm before the end of the month. I love the sun but I always hope March comes in like a lion so that it will go out like a lamb. I can deal with cold and snow early in the month but I always wish for the beauty of sun and green buds on the trees at the end of it.

So where did the phrase 'In like a lamb, out like a lion' come from?

There are several ideas:

While many sayings are base on observation and are accurate, others are the rhymes and beliefs of those who came before us.
Those folks actually believed that bad spirits could change the weather adversely, so they were cautious as to what they did or didn't do in certain situations.  Those beliefs also included ideas that there could be a balance in weather and in life. So if the weather came in bad, (like a lion) it could go out good and calm. (like a lamb)
Since March is such a changeable month in which we can see…

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't.

If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time.

Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a fear of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic fears the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public.
Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment: Cognitive behavioral ther…

National Pizza Day

I am celebrating today! Several things actually!

1) I like Pizza & I have a perfect reason to make one. It's National Pizza Day! Its going to be a simple one though made with an everything bagel with pizza sauce, pepperoni & cheese. I might even add some onions and peppers for a filling supper.

2) Getting the pantry of my dreams. The one I bought is similar to a cupboard that sat in the house of one of my Uncles for as long as I could remember. It was a bit more delicate than the one I bought though. It looked a little like this one.

3) The Professor as confirmed that we will be going to Ottawa for Valentines, I am over the moon! It won't be the week I wanted but it is going to be four days & three nights.

It means that I can explore the Byward district a bit more than I did a few years ago. Happy Dance!
