Merry Christmas

Sunday, December 23, 2007


My next post is dedicated to my sister Nancy,
She prompted me to write about what I love,,, POPCORN.

Americans consume about 17 billion quarts of popped popcorn each year.
The average American eats about 54 quarts.
It’s one of the most wholesome and economical foods available.

Popcorn is still the most popular food item purchased at your theater's concession stand.
Current sales in for unpopped popcorn are well over $1,000,000,000…

Most of the popcorn consumed throughout the world is grown in the United States.
Americans consume more popcorn than the citizens of any other country.

One cup of plain, air popped popcorn has about 19 calories.
One cup of plain popcorn popped in oil has about 54 calories.

Each kernel contains a small drop of water stored inside a circle of soft starch.
(That's why popcorn needs to contain 13.5 percent to 14 percent moisture.)
As the kernel heats up, the water begins to expand, and pressure builds against the hard starch.
Eventually, this hard surface gives way, causing the popcorn to explode.
As it explodes,
the soft starch inside the popcorn becomes inflated and bursts,
turning the kernel inside out.
The steam inside the kernel is released, and the popcorn is POPPED!

Once popped,,, it’s a little piece of heaven… enjoy.

Christmas Kickoff

'Twas two days before Christmas
the "morning after", you see
not a Robichaud stirred except Me and CiCi
The start of the festivities were well under way
The "Robichaud Christmas Dance Party" was the hit of the day
Though some were not there and that made us sad,
For those that did make it,
Oh what fun they did have!
The dancing and laughing lasted into the 'morn
And the parties won't end 'til the New Year once more
So for now we nap and rest up you see,
and add this Christmas Dance Party to our fond memories!

Here is a little snap of my two babies...

Try to guess who was more difficult.
Maybe next week I'll post the photos that didn't' make the cut. ;-)

Celeb Sighting "Dan Aykroyd"

Look who showed up in Moncton!
Mr. GhostBuster himself!
Great guy! Three Hours in line with CiCi in a Liquor store, no less - well worth it.
And an autographed "behind" - we'll let you guess whose...
