Some people may think I'm crazy but...

Anybody who really knows me, knows how I LOVE to find a good bargain and that I'm always on the lookout! I also love to build up my food storage and I'm finding that very difficult here in the land of Oz because for one, everything in the stores are smallish quantities and also the prices are quite a bit higher than what I'm used to paying. So well, as you know, I work at a popcorn shop and so I thought, 'what better place to find a good bargain on some popcorn kernels?' Yep, I was right. What you see above is yes...a fifteen kg bag of unpopped corn. And how much was it you ask? Would you believe it if I told you it was $10? Well believe it sista! 10 bucks...At the grocery store I have been paying 5 times that price. Well, no longer. And you may be wondering what the HECK are you gonna do with all that popcorn?? Well, when you're married to one of these...
You may not wonder any further. We all know the Miller men and their love for the fluffy crunchy white stuff. And I'm not talking about snow either! I'll never forget one time I was sleeping at Steve n'Lynne's and I woke at about midnight or later to the smell of popcorn and Stevo was sittin' there in front of the T.V with his bowl of popcorn. Too funny! As I'm typing this, I'm kinda chuckling to myself and Rick says, 'somebody talking to you?' ha ha ha. Well, I love popcorn too and so do my kids. Every single Sunday I can remember as a kid, my mom had this tradition of making popcorn for us while we watched Walt Disney and The Muppet Show and of course...Fraggle Rock! Oh, the memories!

Good deal Chel! I remember sitting on your couch in Poway while Dan and Rick ate popcorn then going to Canada and Steve and Dan were eating popcorn. They love it! Thanks for posting some pics.

I love the girls hair, and Blaze's too. I wish Mom had one of those dryers so I didn't have to go out in public with curlers in my hair.

I remember watching those shows on sunday night too. We would have popcorn, and canned peaches or cherries. Sweet
