Depending where you are in the Valley, it's either raining or snowing but sounds like a great day to enjoy some popcorn.

Popcorn? Personally I am not a huge fan, I guess I fall into that 8% that does not like popcorn. Maybe kettle corn if I'm really feeling wild.

According to, "Would you believe that humans have been eating popcorn for over 5000 years (and some historians believe longer)! While it was always a popular snack, popcorn “popped” to consumption levels during World War II when sugar rations made candy and other snack food very hard to come by. Since then, with movies and the microwave, popcorn is well-ensconced in American culture as an often healthy and fast treat"!
